Darya tutored and advised me throughout my senior year of high school and my first year at college. Having Darya by my side throughout the stress of a year and a half journey has had a significant impact in my life. Although Darya's main responsibility was to tutor me for my Advanced Placement (AP) Literature class, she went above and beyond to what I expected of an English tutor. She helped me find my inner voice as a writer through tutoring me about grammar, organization, and vocabulary. She also helped boost my confidence as an underprivileged Latina studying in the STEM field as a computer science major at the University of California: Santa Cruz. I passed both my AP Government and AP Literature classes and tests which is significant because both required a heavy amount of analytical writing; I graduated high school with honors and with the highest cumulative grade point average (GPA), 3.7, at any time of my academic career. One week before I was going to take my SAT for the third time, I mentioned to Darya that I was struggling understanding a large portion of the Math section of the test. To my surprise, she was thoroughly capable skilled in tutoring me in math, along with English. In less than seven days, Darya was able to successfully prepare me for my last SAT test; subsequently, my SAT score improved by more than 100 points. If we had more time to go through the preparation book, I could have further surpassed this amazing progress. Another aspect in which Darya supported me in my college application and preparation process was in guiding me to refine my college essays for both private and public universities: as a result, I was accepted to more than half of the colleges that I applied to. Finally, I am most grateful for Darya and her efforts towards my success because of the high number of scholarships that I received in the second semester of my senior year in high school. Through Darya’s excellent editing and writing abilities, I was able to accumulate more than $200,000 in scholarship rewards from four different organizations. I could never have imagined this much triumph before meeting Darya; without these scholarship awards, I would have been forced to work during my breaks and during school to afford a college education. Now, all that I have to worry about is learning as much as I can while I am at UCSC. On account of my strong achievements in less than a year with Darya, I still utilize the many tips and lessons that she has instilled in me. As a result of this, I excelled in my classes at UCSC with a cumulative GPA of 3.6. Because of my outstanding academic success in the first quarter of college, I was exclusively invited by the university to apply to the College Scholars Program; this two-year program selects 20 students out of about 200 students applying from each college at UCSC to help give them meaningful academic challenges. Not only do I recognize Darya as one of the most significant people in my life because of my solid academic accomplishments, but also due to the genuine passion she holds to be sure that her tutees succeed. As her tutee, she constantly reminded me of my own abilities to encourage my confidence. We are still in contact today which further demonstrates her enthusiasm for her tutees. She is evidently benevolent, motivated, and intelligent, and I highly recommend her tutoring and guidance talents to any student who is fortunate enough to be her tutee.
Camilla is the best teacher ever! She helped me to speak English without worrying about my pronunciation. She always speaks English during the classes, so it’s easy to learn through many examples and exercises, she carefully prepares and selects the material for each lesson. She is very patient and kind.I loved her lessons!
My boyfriend and I just wrapped up a two-hour Italian lesson with Carmela and she is incredible! We have very different levels of understanding and experience with Italian as well as very different learning styles and she was able to make the lesson dynamic and meaningful for us both. We can't wait to meet with her again!

Hope has been tutoring my daughter in French, she has proven to be knowledgable, thorough and dependable. She brings a lot of extras to the sessions; like experiences with the French culture, and extra worksheets and study materials, etc.
Tim helped my wife with the basic English for about a month. I liked his approach, he is very patient and dedicated . He was always on time, he had a lot of prepared material, and he was well organized. Compared to other professors that we were in contact I believe that his dedication and effort is very price sensitive. Overall it was very good experience.
I am taking French lessons with Tara and I am really enjoying it. I initially met with Tara for lessons for my children, but after meeting with her, I decided to take lessons myself. She is friendly, caring, and patient- especially with me, someone who has zero knowledge of French. I also appreciate that Tara reminds me of the big picture; why I’m doing something for myself, and how it will enrich my life and add to the experience. Merci!
Anna provided me a good base of practical Chinese skills that I used successfully in my business travel and meetings. I'm certainly not anywhere close to fluent, but I can exchange polite greetings and order meals, and that was my goal. My Chinese counterparts appreciated my efforts with their language. I'm also considering having Anna tutor my middle school boy who has recently started Chinese at his school

My work stands out from others because unlike others, I am a native Spanish speaker. Also, I've traveled throughout Latin America as an advisor for all the Air Forces from Central and South America. I have friends and family in Latin America whom I communicate with on a daily bases.
Sylvia is tutoring my daughters in Spanish. They never had Spanish before, and when they moved to a new school, the level of Spanish is very advance for someone who never had the lessons. Sylvia works with them in getting them up to speed. In a short time, both my children had become comfortable in following the lesson at school, and I have noticed that both of them have made quite significant improvements. My oldest daughter tells me that once she is comfortable with her Spanish, she wants to start French with Sylvia. I am sure that if either of my kids need tutoring in Math, Sylvia would be the one we go to. If your child or children need extra help in academic, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND that you call Sylvia. My children are very happy with how she teaches. Sylvia is also opens to different approaches in teaching. If my kids want more challenge, all they have to do is tell Sylvia and she will give them challenging lessons.
