Hi! I am Irina V. Nikitina, Associate Professor at the School of Interpreting and Translation of the State Linguistics University of Nizhny Novgorod, Russia. Extensively working in the field of translation and interpreting, I have engaged Marina Sokolova in many translation projects as a freelance translator and editor in both Russian and English. Marina has excellent qualifications required for the job. With MA in Second Language Studies (USA) and English Language Pedagogy (UK), as well as such well-established certificates as CELTA (Cambridge English Language Teacher for Adults), Current Trends in Theory and Practice of Language Teaching, she makes a truly valuable contribution to a solid team of translators that I closely cooperate with. In every project Marina has been part of or has lead, she has demonstrated a set of qualities that are truly valuable for a professional: authentic and idiomatic language, broad outlooks, inquisitiveness, accuracy, commitment to deadlines, meticulousness, flexibility and responsiveness. Marina has deep knowledge and wide experience in the following areas: business correspondence, general documentation, academic, fiction. Her translations are always proofread and never require double check. I frequently address Marina to get her expert opinion on various linguistic matters both in Russian and English and find her approach to the job of translation and editing truly passionate.
My tutor Andrew was a great inspiration to me and externally helpful in all departments of English, Math, and Science. He was able to bump my previous 16 score on the English act section to a 22. That is an 8 point difference
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!
During the turtoring sessions not only did Ms.Conrad help me with the lessons,but she went the extra mile and made sure I enjoyed them as well. She brought out the most in each session and not only did it help me but it made me look at the lessons or subjects I was having trouble with differently. I'm very glad I got the help I needed from her because she was the perfect one for the job!
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.
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.
Lucille helped me with editing papers for my Master's degree. I was so pleased with the results, and hired her to help my daughter with her High School creative writing assignments! When I learned that she also did tutoring for reading, I asked her to help my elementary school Granddaughter, with reading comprehension. She has a special way of teaching which made the work fun while achieving success. Her writing abilities are evident in her published books for children and adults. I have read and enjoyed all of them. I highly recommend her services.
I have had 22 years of experience teaching English as a second language to children and adults. I offer reasonable rates and references if requested.
We wanted my 7th grade son to strengthen his writing skills over the summer. With high school quickly approaching, we were hoping for him to enter with solid writing skills so his focus could be on the content of his work without struggles with language and structure. Kendra Hadnott was the perfect person to help him with this. Every part of her process is unique and customized. We started with a meeting to define our goals. Not only did she focus on our objectives, but also our child’s overall interests. He is obsessed with soccer and it was exciting as we sat down the next week to go over her tutoring plan for the summer how she incorporated reading and writing work that included his favorite soccer players, his friends, current teen technology, and more. He was thrilled to write about these topics and was really engaged in her lessons. Throughout the summer they worked on everything from spelling, vocabulary, grammar, language use, sentence structure, and essay structure. Each time they met I received a progress report on his accomplishments. He went into eighth grade with improved confidence and it showed in his writing. He tested into Honors English at OPRF and we are certain that Kendra’s tutoring helped to get him to that level. He will continue to work with her this summer to be certain he will hit the ground running next year. I highly recommend Kendra for your child’s tutoring. She is extremely professional, engaging, and it is evident that working with children is her calling.
Robert is an excellent and prepared teacher. His lessons are always helpful and exciting. He provides all the required documentation and he is open to meet your necessity. Alessandra
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.
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.
The key to education is to love what you do and I love what I do. There's nothing more rewarding than seeing students' progress. As I teach with love and I create a fun environment for students (using games to practice the language), students become involved and interested in the classroom. I have also tutored one-on-one and I prepare a lot of different activities for the class and exercises for the student to be able to practice the language when I'm not there. I encourage watching TV news programs to practice listening comprehension and the use of flash cards in order for the student to memorize some short phrases. I have been teaching Theology for 30 years. I studied at the Opus Dei and at the Argentine Catholic University
Because I adapt to my student's needs.
