Gail is an extraordinary teacher. I feel so lucky that I had the opportunity to learn Spanish with her because she is warm, creative, generous, fun, endlessly patient-and able to create an atmosphere where it feels safe and relaxing to learn at ones own pace. In one year my ability to speak Spanish has improve immensely. I would highly reccomend Gail as a teacher/tutor to anyone who wants to learn or improve their Spanish language skills.
Steve is a wonderful speaker. He adds humor to real life experiences that gets you thinking "I can do that". Steve got me seeing a lot of things in a different more positive way. If an opportunity arises attend or book him to speak and teach.
Gail is a great teacher. She understands your goal and she works with you to achieve it. I'm Italian, and we are working specifically on accent reduction and pronunciation. I have taken many English classes in my life, but nobody has ever taught me how to speak better and sound better in English.
I am Asian, living in the States more than 15 years, and I always wanted to get rid of my accent. I took thirteen hours of private sessions a few years ago. Ms. Hoodwin had nice, easy to understand material for me to work with, and was very patient, kind and professional. In just thirteen hours of her sessions, I learned so much. No one else corrected or even pointed out the things I was saying wrong, or the words that were hard for natives to understand. I would never have known how to correct it on my own without her working with me step by step. I am so glad that I took her sessions. Now, I am more confident and don't have to hesitate to say anything. I am hardly questioned "What did you say?" anymore!! It doesn't matter what level you are at, I know that Ms. Hoodwin can help anyone who has an accent.
Thanks for your help with my English in last few months, especially to change my accent and pronunciation. Without your kindness help, I can never get this TOEFL score, reading 27, listening 25, speaking 26, writing 24. My desirable school requires 23 in the speaking part for considering to give the candidate a TA scholarship, and I have ever never though about it, because I even cannot ask a road when I came to Tallahassee one year ago. However, now I can go to teach the undergraduate courses this fall semester. That's all your help and your glory. Thanks again.
Sandy was wonderful! She delivered what she promised and my daughters SAT reading score went up 70 points! She is amazing! Thanks Sandy!
My voice lessons with Rose began in March 2012 and Im happy to say that she is still my preferred teacher 3 years later. I began as a very self-conscious student afraid to really sing out and let my voice be heard. From the very beginning, Rose made me feel comfortable. In addition to her humble attitude, she has a true gift of meeting the singer where they are. She takes a genuine interest in a student treating them as the individual and unique person that they are while offering plenty of encouragement and support. The techniques Ive learned from her are tried and true practices that have noticeably improved my voice and boosted my confidence as a singer. Each lesson is unique depending on what I am working on each week, and our practice session is always full of skills and techniques for me to use and practice for the next lesson. Improved projection, stronger breath support, fostering my unique voice, and incorporating the importance of portraying the emotion of a song by feeling it in my body as I sing are just some of the ways her teachings have developed my skills as a singer. We properly warm up the voice at the beginning of every lesson. Rose listens closely during the warm up session and gives feedback where necessary, even if it means going back through the exercise again in order for the student to experience the difference. Rose brings her love for music to every lesson by suggesting songs from various genres ranging from theatrical pieces, ballads, pop songs, duets, and more. One of my favorite things about our lesson is how she puts in the time to learn the song I choose on either the piano or her guitar so that I can also experience singing with a musical instrument and at the same time develop ear training. If you are nervous about singing or have always wanted to sing but dont know think you could cut it, you have to schedule a lesson with Rose. She will meet you where you are and at the same time challenge and shape you with patience, humor, and expertise. Every lesson is worth it.
