If your confidence has been lost when you are speaking English because of your pronunciation, I strongly recommend you meet Bren McElroy. She is a very experienced teacher: In her lessons, she coaches you how use tongue, lips,teeth, and air to pronounce correctly. It is very practical, so I could recognize my progress quickly; in just the first 15 minutes, she identified my pronunciation weak points and effectively guided me through an efficient process to overcome my pronunciation difficulties. Bren is enthusiastic and she encourages me which helps my confidence when speaking English. Every lesson is fun!

It was really awesome to learn Spanish from Sibyl. I started from the very basic such as "¿Qué tal?"or "Gracias", and now i can build a sentence and briefly describe the situation in Spanish within 3 months. She prepares interesting materials including pamphlet written in Spanish/ family pictures, which was really helpful to make me feel close to Spanish. I highly recommend to people like me who wants to learn basic Spanish.

Lee really is a good teacher. I am able to write this in English because, among other reasons, she was very patient, didactic and fun while I was learning English with her. I really recommend her.

    I can describe Chris in one word: PASSION. He is passionate about teaching and all passion he has is turned into energy always giving 100%. He's the best teacher I ever had. With him I feel I'm really learning and improving my English skills. His classes are alternatives and especially original: with Chris is impossible to be bored! He creates his lessons really thinking to his students. He is one of the only teachers who hasn't forgotten how it was to be a student. In my opinion that's amazing! What I like most is that every class is active, dynamic and unique. Chris for me isn't just an English teacher, he's a life coach: he taught to me to face life in a different way, has taught me that we mustn't give up, because the beauty of life is its "non-perfection". Now I know there is always something to be proud of and that something brings us to achieve the big goals. I feel very lucky to have met Chris, he's a great teacher and a great person. There should be more people/teachers like him.

    The secretaries at Alliance Francaise do a fantastic job of being personal and organized. I had to withdraw from classes one session and they transferred my money to the next session without any heckling or difficulty. They converse in French or English depending on the abilities of the person and are extremely helpful!

    I enjoy helping people come to a greater understanding of the Spanish and English languages. I offer services to help the student looking to improve his/her grades, those with the professional desire to improve their Spanish, the native Spanish speaker wanting to improve his/her English and/or the person with a passing interest in picking up a few Spanish phrases.

      Victor has been tutoring my daughter in middle school Spanish every other week for almost 2 years. She loves the lessons and looks forward to them. He always makes her feel so good about what she knows and what she is progressing on. They meet in our house after school or on a weekend or sometimes at the local library. They always seem to be having such a good time amidst an animated conversation! My daughter is a strong language student now in 9th grade who wanted to continue Spanish which she took in elementary school while taking French at middle school. Victor has helped her to keep up with her classmates taking Spanish by using the same book, by researching what the kids in her school are working on (he doesn't teach at her school), and by encouraging her to practice between lessons. He is really fun for her to speak with and also very gentle and understanding about kids and language skills. Victor has been very flexible about the scheduling and is easy to communicate with to make arrangements. I think he would be an excellent tutor for a kid or adult of any skill set and at any age. I can highly recommend him!

        I thought the courses for English and accent reduction would be fairly ridged in approach. Also, was unsure how learning on-line would work. I was wrong. The instructor took the time to understand my background – what is my primary language, how along was my current English speaking, and even the industry I was working in. All of this was important to tailoring my lessons to focus on the areas I needed to work on. Learning was also relaxed yet effective..

        To Whom it may Concern, Anna has a very good experience. She was born in Russia and has a very good backing in the Russian language and the English language. In the 1990's she helped me through the translation of my work in Russian. Along the same lines, she helped translate the Russian documents that I retrieved from the KGB archives. I did all of the leg work of visiting the sites, archives, and locations in Russia (over 22 times) in which I visited locations that my relative was sent to in Russia in the 1920's. I had guides and interpreters in Russia to assist me. I have the desire to learn the language (Russian). It is a hard language. Anna has guided me through many lessons. I can read and translate a lot of the work in the lessons. I reviewed many document from the Archives in America, Russia, Finland. I met with additional people in Russia to uncover the story of my relative. I have met Anna's father and mother several times in Moscow. I met many other Russians and as they became familiar with my effort, they noted that I had been to more places in Russia then most Russians. Interesting, I was honored with a "Honorable Professor" certificate from the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences Section of Military History , culture and law for my work in 1999. they noted that I was the only American to receive the honor and only 47 Russians had received. I enjoyed talking with young children. They want to learn English, and I wanted to learn Russian. In one time, I was asked to talk to a class. Questions where directed to me and from me to the class. I did need an interpreter at the time. I could go on forever about my experiences. But, Anna would have me tell stories at the beginning of every class. I she would help me, correct me, and go on. Every class produced many new words. I had trouble remembering everything. But, little by little, I developed my Russian skills. I am still receiving lessons from Anna. I will admit that this is more about me then Anna. But, Anna is an excellent teacher of the Russian language (and French, Spanish, and Hebrew). She has been there In teaching me the language, the culture, and the many things about Russia. Sincerely, Edward M.

        I try to focus in a couple of areas in which I have a lot of experience rather than spread myself out and do too much. I find this works better for both the student and me. The two areas of which I speak of are music and English. Specifically, in music, I teach the guitar from the basics to more advanced lessons. The student can choose any area in which he wishes to focus, including jazz, classical, pop, blues, etc., electric or acoustic. In English, I teach basic writing skills and the grammar that goes along with that. In addition, I can address more specific topics in which the student might express interest in, such as essay writing, songwriting, and script writing for movies. That's basically it. I'm not interested in trying to teach someone just for the sake of having a student. I won't accept a student unless I feel I can help you. Period.
