John helped my son with ACT preparation (mainly English), earlier this year (2017). John has an excellent understanding of the subject matter (SAT & ACT), lucid in his explanation of complex questions, very empathetic to a student's requirements (do you need to move your ACT scores from 25 to 30, 32 to 35, etc) and extremely flexible with his timings...this was critical as my son was busy with out of school activities and John was willing to move his schedules at the last minute. I rate him as a great tutor and completely worth the fees paid.

I have wanted to really learn Spanish for a long time and have had a number of tutors over the past three years. Marc has been the absolute best tutor and the one most genuinely interested in my progress that I've had. We started with the rudiments of the language, and now, through conversation, he's able to identify what I need to focus on and give me an appropriate assignment, as opposed to just having me do the "next" lesson. Marc is not just a native speaker, but also has what seems to be a complete knowledge of his native grammar and can explain it in perfect English, if need be, rather than just telling you not to do something because it's not done or sounds weird. In the past, I often found it frustrating when an instructor couldn't explain the logic or English equivalent of a grammatical rule, particularly when it applied to verb conjugations that aren't normally used in English. I've learned a lot with Marc being my teacher and continue to improve at a place that I'm extremely happy with. He's a great teacher. Thanks, Marc!

Youlian's lessons are very well organized and planned, and she has an absolutely fantastic ability to explain the nuances and subtleties of day-to-day Mandarin. Every lesson includes listening comprehension, reading comprehension (I'm just using Pinyin for now but she covers Hanzi as well), and conversation practice, and Youlian always provides me with very helpful feedback.

I needed several of our company business cards translated from English to Arabic. IDESLI and their team of translators worked with me and were able to provide the cards I needed in a variety of formats to make their production much easier. They even proofed the final design cards after they were designed to ensure accuracy and legibility. They were always quick to respond to questions and the overall experience was stress-free. I would highly recommend their services.

I have been working with Linda since January 2017. I moved from Seoul South Korea in 2012 for school, and I knew I needed to improve my English. Working with a English tutor was my new year resolution to advance my English skill. I learned not only business english expressions, grammar, and presentation skills, but also how to continue to learn by myself which is one of the most important tools I learned from her. After I started working with Linda, my contract role as a UI/UX Designer at a global design software company in SF became a full time position. I've been enjoying working with her! She is so passionate, devoted and fun to work with.

Kristen was essential in my English learning process - I practically learned to speak and write in English from her. She's a master of her mother tongue: profound and eloquent. On top of her knowledge, she is able to teach English in an exciting way which makes studying a lot of fun.

Chris is an excellent teacher. I had a few other teachers before her, and I can say Chris is the best. I think she is also a good phycologist, because she finds right approach to every student. Her lessons are very effective. My 7 years old daughter knew no English at all. She was ready to go to local school just after 3-4 lessons with Chris, her vocabulary increased from zero to a few hundreds of words. I feel dramatic improvement in my English pronunciation after taking lessons with Chris. My accent was so strong that even waiters in McDonalds did not understand me. Now I speak freely, even over the phone, and I do it intuitively without thinking about how do I do it.

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.

      In the beginning, I was really afraid of talking to others in English because I know that I can’t speak English well. However, after some lessons, I become more and more confident and fell in love with the lessons. I tried speaking to others and they answered me. This greatly encouraged me.

      Audrey is excelent teacher, she helped me to lose my respect to speak English. She let me speak and then corrected my mistakes and explained why I did them. She wrote these sentences with corrected mistakes and I can look at it anywhen. I could choose the topic and l learned to use English in common life. It helped me in my job very much.

      About

      Because we are small, we are able to offer a far more personalized approach than many large tutoring houses. Yet, we have the tools, training, and know-how of a large academic institution. For each student, we systematically work to identify problems, and then collaboratively create a plan to solve them using innovative curriculum design. Above all else, we are passionate about what we do! We care about genuine knowledge and understanding: we look beyond the numbers. We teach students to set their own goals, not merely jump through the hoops in front of them. We strongly believe that any student can succeed with the right combination of guidance, enthusiasm, and challenge.
