Very patient with new a student, very understanding. Very capable. The lessons are more than adequate.
Nuria Fortier was my Spanish teacher for fall 2014 through the International Language School for Children and Adults. I am an adult, beginner level spanish language student with some previous beginner coursework. Our Saturday morning one-hour classes are held at Pitzer College and ran from September through December into January. I am very impressed with Nuria's language instruction. She meets the students where he/she is in their learning, yet also helps you to challenge yourself (for example speaking as much as possible in Spanish during lesson). She stresses the importance of grammar and verb conjugation structures within conversational Spanish lesson. She constructs lessons so that we come into contact with verbs and then we address the conjugation. She recommended two very good books for beginner level that we use during the lesson, and also introduces fun story reading (at children's level which is actually very good for beginner adult learner). Nuria is very professional and reliable, and encouraging for an adult language learner! Nothing negative to report. Nuria has also created a local Spanish speaking group of current and former students who meet to practice Spanish and I am looking forward to joining this group. Thank you Nuria! I recommend ILSCA and Nuria Fortier for Spanish language. Her Children's programs are also very well attended.
I love the way Holly teaches! I had no idea where to start with spanish since i never had much schooling for it and only picked up some spanish from traveling and from my husbands family. Holly was able to make lessons custom for me and has really helped me to learn and understand and speak a lot more spanish. My husband (whose first language is spanish) was hesitant at first that I did not choose a tutor who is spanish, but after just a few lessons he was impressed by how much i was already learning and saw that my spanish was improving and that Holly really knows her stuff! she's very friendly and creates a comfortable learning environment.
Zoia is my favorite teacher of english. I am a speaker of spanish living in México. I love our english lesson via skype. I highly recommend Zoia as a teacher and translator. Thanks Zoia
Miss Marguerite is a great piano teacher. She approaches her music lessons through a variety of techniques and methods that always keeps our daughter engaged. She teaches her music theory, music appreciation, rhythm, play by ear and the ability to read music. She differentiates the needs of each of her students and taps into their styles and preferences. Our daughter has learned a lot under her tutelage.
Patricia has given English lessons to our 3 children, 2 hours a day, for 2 months in May and June 2015 in France. As French native speakers, the objective was to make them all feel at ease in English (spoken and written) in order to join an international English speaking school in September. Camille, 13 years old, had already some school knowledge of English, and Sarah, 11 years old, had very few knowledge of English. Despite of that, the 2 girls decided to take the lessons together and Patricia adapted very well to the level of each girl, making them feel as taking nearly private lessons, sharing perfectly her time between the 2 girls. She was able to use the strengths and weaknesses of each girl to build a team spirit to achieve each of them goal : good communication skills for interpersonal relations and a good written level to adapt to academic learnings. Cyrille, 7 years old, didn't have any knowledge of English and the objective was to get him used to listen and understand basic English. Again Patricia succeeded in this goal perfectly. Cyrille was very scared to start his first lesson and did not want to go, but after all he did not want the first lesson and all the others to stop ! Patricia was always extremely patient, enthusiastic, positive, constructive and fun all the time ! The children did theoretical exercices, as well as some practical ones, such as cooking or shopping, and of course lots of conversation. They all loved the lessons with her. Today, after one month of schooling in English, we can confirm that Patricias lessons were very helpful and allow our children to succeed in getting well-adapted to their new environment and working methods. Therefore, I highly recommend Patricia as a tutor as she is highly competent, efficient, and able to adapt to all type of levels and ages, from young boy to teenager.
Ross takes my language learning goals seriously and works with me accordingly. He is thorough answering my questions and always provides an engaging learning experience. His lessons are very well structured and I am always aware of my progress as well as what I need to continue to work on. He is punctual, organized and very friendly! I would highly recommend Ross!

I'm a UC grad providing math and science tutoring/homework help. I provide math/science tutoring to students who need help with their homework/exam prep. Subjects include the following: * Elementary Math * Prealgebra * Algebra 1 * Algebra 2 * Precalculus * Trigonometry * General Chemistry * Economics I graduated with a biochemistry degree (minor in economics) from UC San Diego. I can also teach the Chinese language and help in translating documents from English to Chinese and vice versa.
The fastest time to learn good Chinese (no good way) is to only start from scratch, but the choice of the shortest distance to reach the goal in order to be successful is this; believe me.
I teach but I also can give telephone consultations. Answer any doubts over the web.
In 2010, I received my bachelor of arts in classical voice from California State University San Bernardino. Then I continued my education and received my master of music in classical voice from Manhattan School of Music and graduated in 2012. Currently, I teach music part-time at a Catholic School in Covina and sing every Sunday as the soprano soloist for Pilgrim Congregational Church in Pomona. I believe in a healthy and natural approach to singing. I also believe that a singer should be trained in music theory, rhythm and ear training. I teach both of these essential aspects in my lessons. During the 2007-08 academic year, I studied abroad in Southern Germany through CSUSB's International Program. For an entire year, I studied the German language while I continued my studies in voice. The summer between my master's degree, I studied in Florence, Italy. Those days were spent eating, breathing, learning the Italian language and way of life. I share both of these experiences with you because as a classical soloist, it is required that you sing and preferably speak in as many languages as possible. With time spent in both these beautiful countries, I had the opportunity to completely embrace the culture and language. I realize you may not want to be a classical singer; however, if you learn the technique of one, I guarantee you can sing any type of music you please. You see, in Opera there are no microphones or anything to enhance the volume of one's voice. Therefore, one has no choice but to do it correctly. My goal as your teacher will be to help you understand your voice and for you sing to the best of your ability, with a healthy and natural technique.
I teach you to communicate in the English language; in other words, I train you to write or speak your ideas so that they are clear, interesting and effective.
I offer tutoring in math and the Spanish language. The subjects include basic math, prealgebra, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, geometry, trigonometry, and precalculus.
