As a journalist, I knew I needed to communicate more naturally, more confidently in English (my second language.) Laura’s expertise, guidance and patience proved invaluable. One the smartest career decisions I’ve made.
I had a few lessons with Marina, to improve my written English. My English is very advanced but I needed help with writing. She was extraordinary at the job, she has a great feeling for the language.
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 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
Ms.Conrad was my 10th grade English teacher as well as my PSAT/SAT tutor. She was a phenomenal teacher who helped me grow not only as a student, but also as a person. Her bubbly and easy-going personality made working with her fun and enjoyable. Her caring nature made me feel like if I never needed someone to talk to I could turn to her. Being a junior, I had to get ready to take college admission tests, but with all new changes and all the different types of tests, I had no idea where to start. Luckily for me, Ms.Conrad was offering SAT/ACT/PSAT tutoring over the summer of my sophomore year. I was so excited to get a opportunity to work her again, I started immediately. She was really flexible and was always understanding of any difficulties or questions I had. She really brought out the best in me through each session so we accomplished every meeting. Now I can't wait to take my PSAT because, thanks to her, I feel confident and well prepared for it. I had also tried preparing for the PSAT through learning centers such as Sylvan, but the results and growth were nowhere near the same as working with Ms.Conrad. To the learning centers I was just another student, but Ms.Conrad really honed in on my strengths and weaknesses, she individualized my lesson plans so that whatever skills I, personally, struggled with she would help me improve on them. Her approach to the lessons made it so easy to follow and understand. I'm so thankful I worked with her because she did an amazing job and is definitely perfect fit for anyone looking for English or SAT/PSAT tutoring!
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.
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.
Robert is an excellent and efficient teacher. He prepares every class, gives me many tips and materials to improve my English and is really helpful. At the same time he is friendly.
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
She is professionalz. Her classes were always well prepared. I could see the study goal, put-in, out-put, relevance exercises and positive outcome. I and my classmates can also received regular feedbacks from her. These feedbacks are very helpful and practical. She is responsible for the ielst practices and presentation and some writings. My ielst the marks for exercises improved about 10% after her training. What impressived me most is the presentation part. After systematical training, I understood what is a good presentation; what kind of skills can be adopted and which part I should put more effort in. She is also kind and helpful, being always positive and patient. I would say she is the best English I have met, especially when she is compared with other teachers. She is more responsible, more passionate and much more professional! I will strongly recommend her to my friends who would like to learn English.
I have had over 30 years of experience teaching English as a second language to children and adults. I offer reasonable rates and references if requested.
I worked at a junior high school with Kristy. She worked well with the students, she was professional and kind. She was well liked by both students and staff. She was a joy to work with.
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.
