Spanish Lessons

Above Grade responded to my request quickly. Our tutor for Spanish (Lina) has been a joy to work with. When asked if she could reach out to my daughters teacher she did so without hesitation. This has helped with her understanding my daughters strengths & weaknesses. I appreciate her level of commitment to my daughters success.

Spanish Lessons

I've been taking lessons with Laura for about 8-9 months now -- she's an incredible teacher! I look forward to my lesson each week and my conversational Spanish is noticeably improving. She's also very laidback and caters the class to my needs. Very professional and Jocelyn is super quick to respond for any scheduling matters. I appreciate that they offer discounted packages too so you don't have to pay per class.

French Lessons

After 6 years struggling to learn French on my own, in a little over a month I feel I am making solid, rapid progress. Antonella is extremely positive and supportive while personalizing each lesson to what I need to learn. We move past the things I already know and focus on what I don’t know. I have never been this motivated to learn anything. I enjoy studying now. I’m so excited!!

Spanish Lessons

Jocelyn was polite and quickly connected me with a tutor for my kids. We got Lina, she’s a patient and really good with children (6,7) I admire her approach to teaching them.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    In our pricing, we aim to be fair to both the customer and the instructor. The company policy is to I focus on quality and not quantity. Therefore, we only have a limited amount of students each instructor can have on their roster. We are not the cheapest company as we believe teachers should be compensated generously for their hard work. We are not the most expensive company as we believe in being fair and modest to our customers. Lastly, we have a price structure built in place to ensure commitment from both the customer and instructor.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Typically, a client will call and tell us the areas they or their student has struggled. We will arrange an appointment for a comprehensive assessment. During the first meeting, the evaluation targets the strengthens and weaknesses of the student. From there, we are then able to create an individualized learning plan.
