Galina is helping my son learn Spanish and she is wonderful! She is prompt, warm, friendly, speaks several languages and so knows how to teach kids trying to learn another language. He looks forward to his lessons with Galina!
She is amazing! My girls love her (5 & 7). She meets with them one on one after she determined their learning patterns/habits. She was responsive to my requests about helping them with their homework and comprehension. She tailored her lessons to their age and learning ability. She recommended books and materials. We have seen a lot of progress in their Mandarin skills and she has been able to focus them on the task at hand despite their young age. I have and will continue to recommend her to friends.
Marion is a wonderful teacher who is skilled at determine and working with various language levels. She is also very attentive and really helped me advance my language skills and pronunciation. I recommend her whole-heartedly!
I am currently learning Italian with Camilla and she makes it so easy and fun. I would highly recommend her to anyone interested in learning a new language.
As someone who has always wanted to learn a second language but has struggled, Kristina has made the process of learning Spanish a breeze. I am feeling confident about my upcoming abroad due to her calm, patience and creative way of teaching. Thank you Kristina! I couldn't be more pleased.
I started with Christelle not knowing a word of French. I was in a time crunch and needed to learn the basics if the language quick. She was patient, efficient, and fun! Her method is extremely logical and easy to follow. I highly recommend her to anyone at any level. Merci, Christelle!
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.
Angela is an incredibly patient and knowledgeable tutor. She works closely with the student to understand their goals for fluency and as the lessons begin to pick up momentum she skillfully identifies where individual trouble points are and how to effectively address them. She makes her lessons interactive and always brings in her cultural perspective to the lessons. I look forward to my weekly sessions with Angela.
I took two spanish lessons with Cristian before learning I will be be relocating for work. During our sessions he was a great help introducing me to the Spanish language and challenging me to learn in new and improved ways! I only wish I could keep up the classes!!
I just began working with Tara for french lessons, and 3 lessons in am having SO MUCH fun and learning a ton. Tara is engaging, professional, flexible and really great to work with. Thank you Tara, eager to continue learning with you :)
Sun Spanish is an excellent way to learn Spanish. It offers convenient group classes and private lessons. My choice was private lessons. Sun Spanish tailored the classes to fit my needs: conversation, not a blizzard of grammar rules. As a result, and after a relatively short time, I am able to easily carry on a conversation with any native speaker. I am now going back to learn some of the more difficult rules of grammar, but only after already exceeding the conversational level that I had expected. I highly recommend Sun Spanish.
I really enjoy having French classes with Kathleen! She is very knowledgeable of the language and have good learning methods and materials. I`m mostly focused on conversation and we practice a lot. Also, she is very sweet and is a very nice person to have classes with! I definitively recommend her!
Raffa is an excellent Spanish tutor! He's taught me more in two months than I'd have learned two semesters of university language classes. Highly cost effective! He clearly has a great deal of experience and expertise in structuring curriculum, but he's also flexible and allows me to steer the lessons towards the vocabulary and grammar I am most interested in acquiring. I am also an educator and I have complete respect for his approach and commitment to teaching. I give him my highest recommendation.
Gina is professional, courteous and passionate about her services with Habla Language Services. She worked with our agency's numerous desires and needs and complied with every request. She is knowledgeable on the subject matter and had lesson plans prepared for each session. I definitely recommend Gina for Spanish Language tutoring.
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.
Carmela is so fantastic! She makes learning languages easy and fun! She gives great tips and tricks for learning along with her lessons. She is flexible which is great for my schedule too!
I took many semesters of German at College of San Mateo with Dr. Raney and she was by far one of the best German professors I've ever had the privilege of knowing. She is patient, brilliant, and very creative in the way in which she teaches a foreign language. She encouraged me and gave up much of her own time to support my desire to improve my language skills. Her dedication and knowledge of German (and I assume in other languages too) is amazing.
Anna does a great job of teaching conversational fluency and vocabulary, as well as providing tons of resources for me to keep up my level of advanced proficiency. Anna challenges me and enables me to practice well.
