I attended to English lessons with Toni and she is a very reliable teacher. I improved my spoken and reading English. On top of providing useful teaching material, she brought a great support during a period of stressful interviews. Aside of having very good English lessons, you will have a good time in taking courses with Toni.

Three words: Best tutor ever! He is an amazing tutor, and his lessons are worth every penny. He is very patient and understands your personal learning pace. His study tips and tricks are great, and I use them frequently to this day. I went to Mr. Foster over the summer to prepare for the ACT, and my experience with him couldn't have been better. Not only did he give me knowledge and study tips, but he also gave me confidence that I can conquer that monstrous test. With his help, I raised my ACT test score from a 20 to a 26. I loved working with Mr. Foster, and he is the first person I will call if I need help with any school subjects. I would recommend Mr. Foster to anyone! He will help you in more ways than one.

Scott has been helping me with the language for almost a year now. I'm a native Russian speaker and make a lot of "classic" Russian pronunciation mistakes. Scott does a great job at helping me to eliminate them. Scott is also a professional RU-EN translator, and this comes in surprisingly handy in our lessons. Often, if there's a Russian idiom I'd like to use in English, Scott comes up with a nice translation for me. Finally, since cultures in Russia and US differ and I moved only a few years ago, it's not always obvious to me why certain things are the way they are here. Scott lived in a Russian-speaking country for quite some time and he really understands both mentalities. His first-hand experience is really valuable for someone like me, and Scott is always happy to answer questions.

Anish always arrived fully prepared for each lesson. He is super capable and has a way to make even mundane material somewhat interesting. I would recommend him to anyone that wants to increase their score, and fast. He is also an excellent writer, and really put these skills to work when brainstorming with me for my personal statement.

Amazing!! Jeriah is very professional and REALLY cares about the child's education. He is confident in his work and it shows. He is able to change his way of communication so his student is able to comprehend the lesson. Hands down the best tutor we've ever had!! We are extremely thankful for Jeriah and his incredible work ethic and morals.

A wonderful 5 stars. Kristen tutored my 7 year old son in reading and writing during the summer. I thought I would quote Kristen from a few of the updates she emailed us as I feel this aptly captures Kristen’s dedication, quality and professionalism as a tutor: “My hope is to help James feel authority and confidence when he chooses a book. The "quality" of the reading material is less important than the habit. No matter what he reads, he is becoming a better reader as long as he engages with the book… Learning to write is a procedural practice, meaning we wear it into our brains like a groove in a record. The improvement will happen over time. By the end of the week James could read his own writing back to me. At the beginning of the week, he couldn’t. Also he proposed his own writing assignment in lesson three. That self-challenging initiative is a good sign. That means he understands how to utilize tutoring, how to create an idea out of nothing, and how organize his thoughts around that idea. He dictated the piece and then I recited his dictation and assisted with spelling of larger words as he wrote. He clearly wanted to communicate his thoughts on soccer in writing…” My son ended the summer with a book about dinosaurs that he wrote and illustrated with Kristen facilitating the process and discovered a confidence and enthusiasm for reading and writing. We are grateful for Kristen’s help.

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.

Francesca is extremely patient and very good with kids. She engaged my very hyper active son and has been a huge part of getting him ready for first grade reading and comprehension. She was always on time, always upbeat and he enjoyed his summer lessons a great deal. I highly recommend her.

Dave is extremely knowledgeable. Gives great feedback on my progress. Corrects me where I need the attention. I am satisfied with my decision to take up private lessons. These lessons have brought me to a level where I will be able to keep up with instruction once my class at DVC begins in August.

Jeffrey is a very accomplished scholar and talented lecturer and tutor. He is attentive to students' needs, genuinely concerned about their development, and invests and unusual level of effort in producing his lessons and lectures. He has a broad range of experience to offer in all types of writing, from professional documents to academic essays. His command of the language and his extensive knowledge of its use and its history give him a particularly nuanced approach to both writing and editing.

Excellent! Gifted Geek has full command of the English language. I am a university student and used ESL and Editing services at Gifted Geek. First, I used the service of editing for a 3000 word thesis. I focused the thesis on children's advocacy in shelters. Gifted Geek, charged the best price on the market. There are three packages to choose from which are all the best prices. I decided to get the most out of the service because I wanted the job done with an extra set of eyes on everything including proofreading, copyediting, and content editing. I got exceptional results. My final result is an "A" on the thesis. To better my English, I decided to take ESL on line with Gifted Geek. I am excited to move to the next stage in life. I recommend Gifted Geek, they can get the job done!

About

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.

About

I have been teaching Italian for more than ten years, both privately and at the college level. I love to give my students the empowering experience of learning a new language and to share with them my knowledge of my beloved country. My lessons focus both on grammar and culture, and students of all ages and different levels of language proficiency are welcome. For my teaching, I use both textbooks and current multimedia materials. I also provide translation services (English into Italian and some Italian into English as well) and interpretation services.

About

I can teach English to children (small age group/elementary level). I have my qualifications. I have a master's degree in English/ECs credentials/business administration credential. I want to be contacted through email only.

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.
