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 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.

I hired Chris helping me correct my English pronunciation. In the lesson she picked out where my pronunciation is wrong during talking and gave me examples and helped me practice. I think it is very helpful.

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 Mandarin Chinese for a few years and have had the pleasure for the last 6 months of having Lilian as my tutor. I enjoy her conversational approach taken from printed material. There's no English in it, so it's all memorization. It is both growing my vocabulary and helping me have more meaningful dialog with native Chinese speakers. Lilian is a wonderful intelligent instructor. Some of the course work doesn't stick in my head easily, so I appreciate her patients and persistence helps to that after awhile that which was difficult is now easy. My class with her is one of the highlights of my week.

When I moved from Ukraine to US, my English was at beginner’s level. I have a kid, so I could not take the classes after work. I was very lucky to find Scott who could come to my office during my lunch time. During the classes, we mostly working on growing vocabulary, reduction the ascent and discussed very different topics. There wasn’t a lot of homework, mostly I should listen NPR. With Scott, my English improved and I very appreciate it.

Tim was a great teacher for me! He was easy to talk to,understood my questions, and helped me improve my weak points. After working with him for a few months, I was able to understand a lot of the material provided in the SAT test and improve a lot on my practice test. Overall, Tim is a great teacher for learning how to improve your English , especially to prepare for SAT test.

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.

My son was struggling in 4th grade English class and I'm not that great at English. After a week with Francesca he turned his bad papers into great papers. Seeing him run home and show me his 10/10 paper was the best feeling ever. I highly recommend Francesca and her services. 5/5 stars.

I am very happy to recommend Veronica for anyone looking to improve their American English accent and pronunciation. She is very smart, organized, professional, creative, and supportive.

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.

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.

      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.
