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!

Our daughter has had only 2 lessons at the moment. The first was a very informative diagnostic test. So far we are very pleased with John and our daughter feels she is already improving.

I have been taking lessons from Nando for over a year now and really love the flexibility his lessons provide. He is so willing to help accommodate your schedule. His lessons are a good reminder to keep up with my learning and speaking Spanish. Since I only take 1 lesson a week, I have to do additional learning on my own (which everyone should do anyway) but I like the lessons so much that I just renewed!

I'm having a lot of fun! The hour just slips by and my monologue improves tremendously from the start of the lesson. It's also one-on-one so I get all the attention I need.

Chris has tutored my HS sophomore daughter in Spanish II since September 2017. She worked to understand what foundational elements were missing and quickly established a program of lessons to address the gaps. As a result, my daughter's grade has improved from C- to A- ! I am beyond impressed with this progress, and give Chris an "A" as well. Her clear communication, flexibility, and engaging manner are of value to me as a parent, and have helped my reluctant and shy teen rebound to a capable student with greater confidence and ability. Chris' extensive language background adds flavor and history to lessons, an added bonus. I highly recommend Chris for Spanish tutoring!

Sophie is an amazing tutor. She begins by gaining a thorough understanding of what you hope to accomplish with the lessons and gives you materials and resources needed to help you to fulfill those goals. She is very organized and has a clear plan for each lesson. Her lessons are well explained with different types of exercises so it doesn't get boring. She encourages learning of French culture alongside the language, and as a native French speaker, her knowledge of expressions and details needed for true fluency is fabulous. She also understands school curriculums and AP testing very well to be able to help prepare for those. She was able to teach me what I wasn't learning well enough in school, and I feel much more confident after having her lessons going into my AP test. I highly recommend France@yours for anyone looking to gain fluency and a true understanding of French!

I have been taking Spanish lessons from Ms. Price. She is incredibly personable, knowledgeable and helpful. My Spanish skills have soared since I've started with her. Very friendly, she is an excellent teacher. She knows where weak points are and knows how to explain advanced subjects in a way which is very understandable. I am definitely going to continue lessons and I highly recommend Ms. Price to anyone who is seeking to improve their language skills.

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.

Scott really helps me to improve my pronunciation and my understanding of English. He works with me to fix my pronunciation mistakes. Now I’m more confident while I’m speaking, whereas before I used to be very anxious about speaking English. In addition, I enjoy meeting with Scott because we talk about various topics like travelling, movies, nature, culture, and so on. That makes English practice more enjoyable. Scott is very enthusiastic about learning languages and he has strong experience. Thanks to that, he provides great advice to progress. Together, during our lessons, we practice pronunciation, we review some grammar rules, and we practice English like in real life so he can point out mistakes.

Before I met Lynn I was convinced that all good speakers are endowed by nature or at least are fortunate to have been raised as highly emotionally intelligent and self-aware people. I thought it takes a lifetime to feel confident speaking in public. Lynn changed my entire world. She told me immediately that it would take me only one day to gain my voice. And she was right! At the end of my first day with her I gave the first speech in my life that made me feel happy, appreciated, and convinced that I am a natural speaker! Every talk is hard work, but if you are like me, hard work is joy if you feel rewarded by happy faces, by the sense of connection with your audience, by the deep satisfaction. Lynn guides you, with much love and understanding, to that place where you can speak and be in love with your speaking.

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.

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.

Roslyn is absolutely wonderful! She is extremely patient and has a very thoughtful teaching style. Roslyn was also very prepared for our first meeting. She took the time to research the countries that I will be visiting so that we can plan our lessons around my trip, and even brought books for us to reference. I will continue to use her services and I will definitely recommend her to friends and family.

I recommend Melissa from Speech Capital to anyone seeking to improve their presentation skills. Melissa helped me prepare for my scientific presentation. We met several times, she gave me very useful feedback about both the content of the presentation and the body language when presenting. Her advice helped me overcome the nervousness and improved my confidence when presenting. I will definitely work with her again on my next presentation. She is very attentive and pleasant to work with!

    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.
