It was nice working with Laurel. She helped me to improve my accent in English. I warmly recommend her to people who want to be more fluent.
Nando gives me exactly what I need and want. We discuss, in Italian, subjects that interest me. He provides me with visuals and also recordings so that I can hear other Italian accents. Nando is a patient, knowledgeable instructor and I am extremely satisfied with his teaching techniques. He encourages and challenges me. He's the best!
I'm really happy to have met Toni and I recommend her to anybody who wants to improve their English. Toni is passionate about teaching and she is caring, smart, creative, and very professional. Toni helped me to speak with greater confidence: I now have a better understanding of English and my pronounciation is better (I will never stop thanking her for the patience with my Italian accent! I come from Milan!). In her class she spends time on grammar, reading, writing and pronunciation and she always found the best way to teach according to my needs and requirements. Lessons with her have always been creative and engaging and so it's easier to learn! I had tried other teachers before but have always been disappointed. Toni also gave me homework and sent me several interesting articles (and videos) in tune with my interests. She gave me valuable information on places to visit in Berkeley and San Francisco and she pointed out initiatives that have been useful for me to feel a little more at home in this new country. I am very grateful to Toni and I will continue working with her to improve my English.
Leigh was my excellent English teacher and she still is even after my graduation. Because Leigh has international experiences and has taught English to international students, she is used to so many types of accents, nationalities and cultural differences. That's what makes Leigh a great English teacher. My personal experiences with her lesson was to correct my pronunciation. She helped me to make proper sound to pronounce words and also taught me the importance of rhythm and flow when you speak. I highly recommend to take Leigh's lesson. You won't regret!
I've been taking lessons from Scott for years. He is a very enthusiastic and patient teacher. If you're looking for someone to help you polish your conversational skills or improve your accent, I think he would be a good candidate
Teaching and acting are different skills. Fortunately, Cynthia has mastered both. She combines her understanding of acting technique and human nature with her warmth and humor, and serves up a great meal that will feed your acting chops while you have a great time. I've worked with Cynthia as an actor. She's so talented that I sought her out as a monologue coach and scene study teacher. She coached me on a difficult monologue that I'd written myself, and she brought some real script analysis tools. In scene study, I've been delighted by her choice of material: It's always that perfect blend of something challenging but doable, while being geared to what you need to work on. Go! Sign up! Now!
First, I owe my public speaking to GARY, He was the one who taught me how to get rid of my public speaking FEAR, Now one of my passion is speaking front of people. Second, GARY'S workshop ( Transformational Goal ) helped me to get rid of my Stinking Tinking! and helping me to know more about myself ,WHO AM I? therefore, I am reinventing myself, NOW, I have a better vision who I want to be. Thank you GARY, you are a GOOD SOUL.
Very Committed and helpful teacher. Mrs.Brown is very knowledgeable. We had different subjects to talk about in each meeting. She helped me not just the grammar, accent reduction and also the American culture etc... I enjoyed her English tutoring.
I am very happy to recommend Veronica for anyone looking to improve their American English accent and pronunciation. She is very smart, organized, professional, creative, and supportive. Ever since I started taking lessons with her, my confidence skyrocketed and I gained lots of practical knowledge to improve my American English accent and pronunciation.
I've been taking personal language tutorial from Daniel for more than a year. His methods specifically tackle areas where I could improve most: grammar, idioms and pronunciation. His feedback is always specific, direct and fruitful. Thanks to his efforts, I reduced my accent and my speech became much more fluent.
Andrea is a consummate professional and helped me with ESL and resume editing. I improved my speaking skills in English, my accent and she helped me update my resume. I'm happy I found her!
