Lisa-Beth is a great tutor and is teaching me business English and grammar lessons. Our first meeting was easy to schedule and she made me feel comfortable. Would highly recommend her to anyone wishing to learn quickly and correctly.

Carl is an experienced tutor who provides more than just "homework help" or "test prep." He helped my son with valuable life lessons like organizing his notebook and assignments. He also instructed him to advocate for himself by encouraging him to speak to his teacher after school and to be more proactive about raising his hand in class. Carl was able to identify why my son was struggling, and it had nothing to do with actual understanding of the subject matter. Rather, it was inadequate teaching materials (handouts) and a less than optimal style of teaching. Once these problems were identified, we were able to come up with solutions that would help my son succeed in class. Most importantly, Carl is not just concerned with grades and test scores. His primary concern is that the student actually knows and understands the work. I would not hesitate to refer Carl to anyone needing a tutor for their child.

We highly recommend Lois For tutoring. She is well known in Honolulu and has years of experience. She tutored our granddaughter when she needed to take the entrance exams into private schools. Lois has great knowledge of children and skill in getting them to do their work. Her lessons were challenging and fun. Our grandaughter could hardly wait to return to her next session. We wish Lois was here to tutor our grandaughter in her college SATS. Carol Lehman

Joyee Lin of Thinque has been nothing short of amazing. Professional with results to show. My daughter started working with Joyee a couple of months ago. Within six lessons, my daughter's composite ACT score went from a 28 prior to working with Joyee to a 32. Amazingly, her science score went from a 25 to a 32. Those numbers are the end result of Joyee's professional approach to teaching. During the lesson, Joyee utilizes a number of methods to present the material. It must be said that my daughter took his instruction seriously and worked hard on the material which was provided to her. The result was a good example of team work in which my daughter could receive, in addition to immediate instruction, quick review and understanding after working through the material. Joyee makes it easy to work around a busy lifestyle as he schedules and responds to correspondence promptly. We can't offer him enough praise. Joyee is offering an amazing service and we were so glad to have been referred to him.

During the time of operation of Let The Kids Grow Los Angeles, California 2013-2014. I had the privilege of working with and managing Mrs. Tracy Pfau, she was our head Acting instructor. She had the tasks and duties of working with underprivileged children of the community to help them stay off the streets and into the classrooms. She was able to work with children that possessed some knowledge of acting to complete beginners. She was professional and always uplifting to the children and respected them in a professional and caring manner as if they were her own. She not only taught them the basics fundamentals of acting but she showed them the professionalism and seriousness of the business surrounding a acting career. The ages of the children ranged from 4-17. As this was a after school program she would always be ready with a lesson plan and would not mind helping after hours if needed. I have learned that to be a great instructor you need to first have a great heart and a seriousness to the profession, and Mrs. Pfau is the total package as she is a great instructor and a great mentor and even after the program finished she was still willing to work with the children on a personal basis to really help these children accomplish their goals in the acting profession. I would be more than happy to recommend Mrs. Pfau in any future projects as I do not recommend people unless I really believe in them.

I've been working with Brian Gillet since 2011 to this present day. One of my fellow art classmates recommended Brian's services and I am so grateful for the chance to work with him on Private Voice Lessons. Brian helped me on so many levels with my voice technique, performance skills, and confidence within myself as a performer. I can honestly say that I am the performer that I am today because of Brian's help and guidance. His support and diligence on helping me with material is extremely important in a vocal coach. And you would be lucky to have the opportunity to work with such a fine teacher.

I spent a lot of time looking for tutors for my 2 daughters and it was hard to find someone who could help 2 kids in one day. One of my daughters is ADHD and the other is behind in school. He also explained to me what my ADHD child should eat and shouldn't eat to balance and to help her focus. He is very knowledgeable with the topics he teaches and spends extra time as needed to make sure my children understood and tries to finished up homework. He is caring and very patient. Very good tutor.

I'm Chinese. My 12 year old twin-son and I moved here in Aug 2015. My sons just started their English learning before we came here. My friend helped me finding a English tutor, her name is Barbara. She is very nice,experienced, patient and professional beyond my expectations. She even went to my sons' school talked with their teacher to understand their situation and Taylor made their lessons. What a nice and responsible teache she is! This will never happen in my country. She is so great and I want to show my appreciation to her here! How lucky we are to find such excellent teacher. My sons's English are improved obviously and the score in last semester proofed her effort! We will continuely work with her in the coming year for sure.

Alex went above and beyond to help me succeed in my French class. I didn't know how to put together sentences before him, let alone speak with the proper accent. He was so patient with me and made me a better French writer. I stepped away from a super American accent to a far more French one. He did this through several different pronunciation exercises and even communicated with me in full French at the end of our lessons and would challenge me to try to speak full French back. I felt like I was living in Paris! He is so sweet and even provided me with insights about being a true parisienne for when I study abroad there or work there in the future. Learning French is my passion, and he made that passion come alive. I am truly so grateful to him, and now we have hour long phone calls once a week in French to ensure that I don't lose what I have learned from him. He is detail oriented, as well as an exceptional teacher, and even more interesting person. He has lived all around the world, and always has fascinating stories to tell! I would 100000% recommend him as a tutor. You will not be disappointed!

I came to Oliver at Verbal Ninja ahead of a big speech that had career and even life changing potential. I was speaking to a large group of fellow doctors, several of whom were what you might call “celebrity doctors.” Frankly, I wanted to upstage them. I myself have an acting background but have always had a lot of stage fright for public speaking. I worked with Oliver over the month leading up to the big event. I knew what I wanted to say, just not quite how to say it. He made my words sound like nothing I’ve ever heard before—yes, that good. Yet it still sounded like me…I felt comfortable and spontaneous. He sort of gave me the voice that I always thought I had inside, if that makes any sense. He also coached my delivery, voice, gestures, movement, eye contact, etc. etc. His tricks to conquer stage fright—especially the psychological aspect—are brilliant. The result? I think I killed it that night. Even my billionaire friend who came to see me said I spoke better than a lot of people he sees that speak on a regular basis. Even the owner of the company had this to say: “Thanks for everything, the event was great and we were very happy that you gave that speech, it was amazing! Not only the way you presented (like an actor) but also the content was very emotional, some tears were shed from Melissa.“ People came up to me afterwards and shared how I changed their view on aesthetics and really motivated them. All the “famous doctors” who spoke alongside me on the panel were super impressed as well. In short, Oliver came to me highly recommended. He leaves me even more highly recommended. If the stakes are high, he’s the guy.

My daughter Xcaret started taking Music lessons since she was 4 years old. By age 6 she wanted to sing so we choose voice lessons. We are lucky to had found Beverly who has encourage her to improve her vocals. I highly recommend Beverly, she knows how to engage, make music fun, and show you all the tricks to improve your vocals and take it to another level. Xcaret has been taking voice lessons with Beverly for 18 months now. It truly has been a wonderful experience. Xcaret loves to perform, does her recitals, has more confidence and now sings all the time! And the best thing for me as a mother of 3 kiddos, Beverly is available for home lesson too! 🎼🎤🏆

Robin is an incredible public speaking coach. She’s extremely supportive and has a gift when it comes to helping you prepare for a speaking engagement. She helped me prep for a workshop and her constructive feedback gave me the confidence I needed to make my presentation a big hit! Robin provides a level of comfort that encourages you to improve your speaking skills. She helped me to feel empowered. I highly recommend working with Robin as she has a very unique way of meeting you where you are in the process.
