I worked with Camilla, she is very professional and prepared on Italian language teaching. I improved my fluent language thanks to her professionalism and attention occurred in her work. Good experience!!
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.
So far, my son took three lessons from Cristian. Cristian was wonderful
I take both French and Portuguese with Ingrid and have been extremely satisfied. Her holistic approach to learning ensures that you will know how to apply the language lessons you learn in the field. I was on a time constraint to visit old friends in France and I had about 1.5 months to prepare, and Ingrid prepared me linguistically and culturally to blend in and fully enjoy my time there. Subsequently, I learned that I would be moving to Brazil for work. Thank goodness my French teacher also taught Portuguese! I leave for Brazil this week and after two months with Ingrid, I'm ready for full immersion again! If you have ever visited and lived in a country, you know full immersion is like a punch in the face for the ill-prepared (most textbook taught language students), but with Ingrid you can rest assured that you will be fully prepared for full contact language learning!
I took English lessons with Toni to improve my vocabulary and my academic English. She was also kind enough to tell me about many local resources and she taught me a lot about the American culture and way of life. Toni is very dedicated in her teaching, and she made sure I learned new idiomatic and local expressions in addition to working on my academic English skills. Towards the end of my semester at UC Berkeley she helped me proof my term papers, and provided me with excellent feedback and very helpful comments on my written English. Not only is she a great teacher, she's also a very warm and friendly person who will make you feel welcome and offer a safe teaching environment. Also, make sure you try her mint tea, it's delicious!
Kristina has been amazing to work with. She's enthusiastic, creative, and easy to work with all around. Always right on time to lessons and extremely accommodating. My friend and I take private lessons from her twice a week and are seeing measurable success already after one quick month... lessons are always different, however, we've laid out a custom plan to help us achieve goals. Lovin' it!
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!
I have a student of Tara for 2 months now. She is an excellent teacher who makes the lessons educational and fun. I highly recommend her if you want to learn French.
I can’t say enough about how great Laurence is as a French teacher. She is professional, very conscientious and is always focused on integrating new learning materials that she thinks will challenge me. She is also flexible - when I wanted to focus on a specific subject, she went out of her way to find relevant materials to use. She is always on time for lessons and again, is flexible if I need to change a lesson time. She is also incredibly kind and patient, and is a lovely person. I highly recommend Laurence as a French teacher.
Teacher Wan Wan comes prepared and knows the material to teach my son, and knows how to test him back to see if he absorbs the Chinese lesson well.
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.
Zoe would only speak in Spanish but through expression, gestures and an occasional word in English was able to make us all understand. She also had us speak in Spanish and as our classes progressed, our language skills were so improved. Always friendly, smiling and kind she made everyone comfortable. Missed her classes so much when she left.
Anna provided me a good base of practical Chinese skills that I used successfully in my business travel and meetings. I'm certainly not anywhere close to fluent, but I can exchange polite greetings and order meals, and that was my goal. My Chinese counterparts appreciated my efforts with their language. I'm also considering having Anna tutor my middle school boy who has recently started Chinese at his school
Ms. Zepeda has been tutoring my homeschooled 4th grade son in Spanish. He is very bright but new to the language, and really needed a sharp, encouraging, supportive instructor to help him along. Raquel has been such a wonderful blessing. Warm, patient, intelligent, dependable, and professional--she's been fantastic for our child. He is learning a lot and is excited about the process, due in no small amount to her fun and savvy guidance. He really looks forward to lessons with her! I would highly recommend you see if she is a match for your family, as well.
