Sergey S. My name is Sergey. My company hired Marina for online classes in conversation English. We are IT specialists and did not have much of a real-life conversation in English before classes with Marina. The classes were great, we had a lot of fun and improved a lot. We had no problem talking to customers in English at the technical exhibition afterwards.

I have been working with Jeanette for 3 years now and she is amazing!! I can't say enough great things about her! She uses all of the best tricks to keep French lessons fun and interesting: songs, movies and news articles. She is very patient with my pronunciations and helping me sound like a Parisian! Jeanette is the best French tutor in Chicago!

I have always been interested in acting and learning about the art. As a true beginner, I didn't know where to start or who to hire. I recently hired Dave and not only does he have an extensive resume, he took the time to structure a customized regime for me to fit my personal goals. I would highly recommend him to any person, either beginner or experienced to utilize his unique methods and teaching skills!

    I practiced ACT material with Andrew for a couple weeks and improved my score by 4 points. He was on time for our lesson every week, and always knew how to answer my questions. During each lesson, we took a practice test together, and no matter which test we were working on (science, math, english), Andrew was very knowledgeable on the subject. He was also very understanding when I got questions wrong and worked hard to make sure I grasped every concept. Overall, my experience with Andrew was very beneficial, and I would recommend him to anyone

    I hired Lauren to help my 11 year old twins with math and English homework. She came to our home and worked with them both. Her first session was just yesterday. She impressed me in that she was incredibly patient and encouraging. She went above and beyond in that we had originally hired her for one hour but once she dug in with my son it became clear this was a longer project - she ended up staying at our house for 1 1/2 hours! After the first session, Lauren followed up with me. She provided a plan of action to get my children the help they need now and how to get them to where they can work more independently. It was wonderful. In my case, homework had become a tough, with my twins fighting over my time and questioning whether or not I really know how to do their math problems (I do, but not the way they are learning them!). Honestly, this is the best money I might ever spend. Now, homework is about a peaceful chance to work with a wonderful, qualified teacher rather than fight with mom about fractions!

    We were lucky to have April Abraham as a teacher to our son. We are from Greece and I was always concerned about my kids' adjustment in an non greek environment. April started teaching English my now almost 7 years old son and she was amazing. She was always sweet and I still remember all those interesting and interactive games she used to bring and play with him. Soon his vocabulary started to improve and I was so amazed to see him make his first sentences in English. I'm a teacher myself and I can understand all the effort she put in teaching him. We were so sad when she had to move away from us. My son is now bilingual, he is one of the top students in his class and me and my husband always say that it's because of April that he loved the English language and put it in his heart next to the greek one. We cannot thank her enough.

      Szilvia is a great teacher. I knew this after our first meeting. She is very kind, patient and scrupulous in providing material and explaining grammar step by step during the lesson. After every class, I feel that my English improves. Every time we repeat new words from previous meeting through fun exercises, which helps me to remember them. Time flies very fast during our meetings. Between classes, if I have any questions, I can always write to her, and Szilvia always responds fast. I have experience with other teachers and for me Szilvia is the best English teacher. Natalia

      Thanks to Khool tutoring my son Ethan who is in 2nd grade is now reading above grade level when he precariously struggled with reading comprehension and spelling. Not only is he more skilled his confidence has increased tremdously. His English teacher reports that he even volunteers to read aloud. I still can't believe it! Im so grateful for the time and attention my son was given. Ethan and I look forward to his next session.

        Ms. Li is an excellent teacher and a very nice and intelligent person overall! I've had an amazing experience learning Chinese with her. She has demonstrated a lot of passion for teaching and strong teaching skills. When I started I had no experience speaking or reading Chinese, but Ms. Li was extremely patient and made the lessons easy to process for beginners. I strongly recommend her to anyone who likes to learn/improve Chinese.

          We found Ms Pérez through a friend, as our kids wanted to advance their Spanish level. During the first lesson she arrived promptly and was curtious toward the whole family. My children can not stop thanking me for hiring her, as they have improved radically. I also believe that Ms Pérez is originally from Europe and can teach to a high standard of English. Highly recommended.
