Lisa-Beth is a great tutor and is teaching me business English and grammar lessons. Our first meeting was easy to schedule and she made me feel comfortable. Would highly recommend her to anyone wishing to learn quickly and correctly.
My daughter has taken a few lessons with Carl, and she is very happy with his style of teaching. I hired Carl with the need to prepare my daughter for the SAT exam. Carl was extremely flexible in scheduling the tutoring sessions around my daughters schedule. I have enjoyed listening to Carl tutor my daughter greatly. He has a great sense of humor, and has a special method in teaching, which can just about help anyone in finding the answer and/or struggles that one is having in learning the English language properly. Each time that Carl arrives for the sessions, he is prepared and ready to tutor without wasting any time. Carl is a very knowledgeable and an experienced tutor, and I believe he has the best method in preparing for the SAT. As a bonus, he is very nice, and reasonably priced considering how much he is helping my daughter to prepare for her first life-changing exam. I would definitely use his services again, and would highly recommend him to anyone.
Really eye opening approach to learn language by feeling. It make sense and is more fun than the conventional way. Lois is a real gem for people with accents! Highly recommended.
Not only is Antonio an expert in Italian, he is an extremely kind and caring person with a great sense of humor. He makes learning a new language really fun! His ability to present information in a variety of ways has been invaluable in helping me master Italian. I would highly recommend Antonio as a tutor for any level Italian learner.
Elida is an amazing teacher. She explains things very well & is thorough. She brings prepared lesson plans with her & really cares about me grasping the material & wants me to feel comfortable with learning the language. She is wonderful!
I have been using Noelle for spanish lessons twice a week. I was a complete beginner. Noelle is extremely patient and a pleasure to deal with. She is very encouraging and has an extremely pleasant manner about her. She is very professional and it is readily apparent that she takes great pride in her work and cares very much that you learn the proper way. I would highly recommend her! Ron S
With Stef - you couldn't ask for more from a French lesson. She was very helpful in understanding the perimeters of our group and helping us feel more comfortable with learning the language. Each lesson was well thought out and education. I highly recommended Stef when selecting a French language Instructor!
I have been taking french classes with Anne Cecile since 2012. From the beginning she insisted on speaking french throughout our lessons. She used english when needed to clarify/explain, but I quickly learned to put to use whatever french I had at that point. It really helped me remember! I had taken a french class at a language institute prior, but found that it was not well paced or structured for me. Anne Cecile tailored our lessons to my level and to conversations/vocabulary relevant to my life. I am able to talk about work, relationships, and art because Anne Cecile and I could focus on those. Even after she moved, we continued our lessons on Skype. We conversed in french, and any new/tricky vocabulary or grammar could be written in the text function, so I could review them again. My french husband has been so impressed by my improvement. I think Anne Cecile is a great french teacher and, now, also a dear friend.
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.
My husband and I began our french tutoring with Roxanne a couple of weeks ago. We are thoroughly enjoying our lessons and are beginning to grasp the basics. Roxanne arrives well prepared for each lesson with engaging, informative and challenging materials and games. She tests us at the beginning of a new session, recapping on last week's homework before beginning something new. Speaking predominantly in French (other than to explain) she motivates and challenges us to really listen and follow. I would recommend her highly.
Awesome teacher😀. We started out with lessons for my small children Elsa made learning so much fun for them with games and post-it's throughout the house. My children learned quickly and we fluent before they took Spanish in school. So impressed with Elsa I later hired Elsa to teach my husband and I Spanish. Elsa's approach helped us also learn quickly. We love her she is kind, patient and so much fun. I would recommend her to anyone wanting to learn Spanish. Wally P
Ms. Peggy has helped me a great deal to deal with the language barrier I faced when I got transferred for work to California. She make learning a new language fun and effective. I couldn't have dreamed of a better teacher. Highly recommended.
I took private French instruction from Fouzia for 4 years. This started after I concluded 2 years in small classes at Alliance Francaise from beginner to intermediate. Fouzia is a superb French teacher for numerous reasons including high education, sophisticated cosmopolitan culture level, enthusiasm, uncanny ability to adjust her methods to fit the student's special needs and interests, and more. For example, I need French to relate to my 2 young grandsons in Paris, as well as for adults I encounter there. I recommend without reserve.
Philippe is an excellent dance teacher!! He knows his craft, and can relay information about how to learn steps and movements in easy-to-understand language! He also makes learning fun!!
I had 52 amazing French lessons with Eliane. She is kind, patient, and an expert teacher. I started as an absolute newbie and in a year I become an avid French music listener, being able to understand the lyrics. Additionally, as a native French tutor, Eliane taught me how to speak French with a correct rhythm and intonation. I strongly recommend Eliane to everyone who wants to learn French.Elle est magnifique!
Leah is an incredibly gifted Spanish tutor! I've been meeting with her on a weekly basis for a month now and am learning a lot through her lessons. She works with your schedule and setting up a meeting time and place was easy and stress free! She always come early and prepared, is extremely patient, and does a great job of assessing where you're at and where you need help most. I am at a beginner level but she would be great with advanced learners as well!
Joan helped me by providing Spanish language lessons. We met at her home where she was always prepared with a program specific to my progress and needs. I was impressed with her knowledge and friendly and professional manor. I recommend Joan if you need help at any level in learning Spanish.
As a beginner in learning French, Pierre was everything I could have hoped for in a tutor. He excels in patience, expertise, and consistently keeping me on my toes with exercises and textbook materials in order to push me forward. Pierre was always on time to our sessions and never hesitated to stay over an hour to make sure I understood all of the concepts presented to me. I hope Pierre tutors in other languages because I wouldn't hesitate to sign up with him again! ...right after I master French of course!" Thank you so much for your help. -Farah Saleh
Adele, is a fun loving, intelligent, kind, and just all-around great tutor. We call it an Italian play date when she comes over to teach my son. He learns through play being that he’s four years old and she adapts to what he’s interested in. He loves having her come. And we enjoy her as well. We see the benefits in him as hes starting to think and speak in Italian where previously he had not. This is very exciting to see the benefits of the weekly tutoring. I would recommend Adele as a language tutor to anyone.
Marcelo is a native Spanish speaker, has lived in Pasadena for many years, and was an architect before he retired. He is a very pleasant person, and very easy to talk to. He is very flexible and non-dogmatic in his approach to teaching Spanish, and adapts his teaching style to his students' preferences. In our sessions we work through a Spanish language text book and do reading, writing and speaking exercises. As I have become more proficient, our lessons have focused more on conversation, which I enjoy. Among other things, Marcelo is an interesting person with a wealth of experiences, and conversations with him are always interesting. While not fluent, I have gotten to the point where I feel relatively confident in carrying on a basic conversation. Marcel is completely reliable...he never misses a scheduled session, and he is extremely punctual.
Awesome tutor! Real Deal. She's kind and explains everything really well. You will be learning the language from a true frenchie.
