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.
Lois has a great ability to adapt to the student's needs. I love her teaching methods, developed by her based in all her years of experience teaching english. I've experienced a really fast improvement with pronunciation, which was my number one concern. I've really enjoyed her classes and I totally recommend her!
I cannot say enough about Thinque Prep and Joyee Lin. He is dedicated to his students success and does a very thorough job of preparing them for the ACT or SAT test. My son, Zack, who is very bright but requires a lot of patience worked with Joyee over the summer and brought his composite ACT score up from 30 to 33. His math score increased a full 4 pts. and he scored a 35 in English. Thinque Prep has other services related to tutoring and college application preparation. Zack will be working with Joyee on his college application essays. Joyee is in California and we are in Texas but this was never an issue as the sessions are done via video chat. The office manager Jen was great to work with and the appointment process was easy to navigate. I found the rates to be very competitive for like services. If there was a way to give extra stars I would!!
Jeff(rey) was really great as a tutor. He taught me a lot of tricks for the SAT like how to break down vocabulary words and how to write an essay that will get a high score. I took the SAT once already and after working with Jeff my total score went up 300 points. He gave a lot of homework, but now that I have my higher scores back, I'm glad he did!
Nuria Fortier was my Spanish teacher for fall 2014 through the International Language School for Children and Adults. I am an adult, beginner level spanish language student with some previous beginner coursework. Our Saturday morning one-hour classes are held at Pitzer College and ran from September through December into January. I am very impressed with Nuria's language instruction. She meets the students where he/she is in their learning, yet also helps you to challenge yourself (for example speaking as much as possible in Spanish during lesson). She stresses the importance of grammar and verb conjugation structures within conversational Spanish lesson. She constructs lessons so that we come into contact with verbs and then we address the conjugation. She recommended two very good books for beginner level that we use during the lesson, and also introduces fun story reading (at children's level which is actually very good for beginner adult learner). Nuria is very professional and reliable, and encouraging for an adult language learner! Nothing negative to report. Nuria has also created a local Spanish speaking group of current and former students who meet to practice Spanish and I am looking forward to joining this group. Thank you Nuria! I recommend ILSCA and Nuria Fortier for Spanish language. Her Children's programs are also very well attended.
My experience learning Spanish with Hilda was exceptional. She is an incredibly enthusiastic and intelligent Spanish tutor; she prepared me well for my study abroad in Buenos Aires. Her lessons were always dynamic, fun, and incredibly rewarding.
Miss Marguerite is a great piano teacher. She approaches her music lessons through a variety of techniques and methods that always keeps our daughter engaged. She teaches her music theory, music appreciation, rhythm, play by ear and the ability to read music. She differentiates the needs of each of her students and taps into their styles and preferences. Our daughter has learned a lot under her tutelage.
Joan helped me by providing Spanish language lessons.
We met at her home where she was always prepared with a program specific to my progress and needs. I was impressed with her knowledge and friendly and professional manor. I recommend Joan if you need help at any level in learning Spanish.
Whenever I have a high stakes assignment, I take it to Oliver. He never disappoints. Whether its a History DBQ, an English literary analysis, or a letter of recommendation, Oliver makes it better. His analytical mind and command of the language are untouchable.
My son now in 5th grade has been taking language arts reading and comprehension lessons from Mrs Patt. I have seen huge improvement in his reading and writing skills and his grades have improved. He enjoys going for her classes which is a big thing. She is really friendly and understands each kids learning needs and works with them. I highly recommend Mrs Patt.
I used to be intermediate level of English but after tutoring, I feel that my English improved to an advanced level. I can more properly use grammar in speech and in sentences. I am happy to say that I am now going to college and I really recommend tutoring. My experience was really good.
I work in small groups, 1-4, and teach listening, speaking, reading, grammar and pronunciation.
I have spent many years teaching English in Thailand, China, Cambodia, Canada and the USA. I have worked with 4- to 55-year-old students from primary school to university.
I am a recent college graduate with experience in tutoring in multiple subjects (especially elementary and middle school) as well as English tutoring.
I graduated from the University of California San Diego with a Bachelor's Degree in Communication. I am very patient and detail-oriented and would love to help you with your reading, writing, and pronunciation needs.
