Alejandro has been a wonderful Spanish instructor. I very much look forward to my lessons. Alejandro's lessons are private or in very small groups, allowing for lots of practice and an individualized curriculum. I highly recommend!
I and my 7-year-old son are having Ian's English lessons. Not only is his lessons wonderful, his character is wonderful too! My son seems to make progress his english vocabulary since he met Ian. I will recommend Ian to the people who are looking for English lesson in Boston.
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!
Since I've started working with Sybil, I have more time to practice my conversation skill. She addressed the issues right away during our lessons. Moreover, her delivery method is amazing. Noot so rigid, no rush, and always offering any suggestions necessary to improve my language. I do enjoy it.
Oliver is so professionalism and my son likes his lesson.
Before UMB, I have never taken a class on a different language due to the fact that I went to a technical trade high school. As a Transfer Student entering UMASS Boston, it is a requirement that the student must take 2 semesters (101 and 201) of a language. I chose Spanish because I thought it was the second most spoken language next to English. After the first few weeks of trying to learn spanish with the course and a couple iphone apps, my professor recommended that I go to the UMB tutoring center to better understand this Spanish language. It was at this scheduling session where I was matched up with Arlete as my tutor. We would meet once a week to go over the weekly material and she would give me pointers on how to study and clarify the words that I was unfamiliar with along the way. After a few weeks into the semester, I knew that if I had any chance of passing the class that it would be with the tutoring assistance from Arlete that I could achieve my goal. I ended up passing SPAN101 in the Fall Semester. As the Spring Semester rolled around, I was put into the SPAN201 where I knew I was going back to the tutoring center to find further assistance to help me pass this course as well. While the process for establishing a tutor took longer due to the snow days, I had one session with a different tutor until I made it clear with Arlete that I would like her to tutor me for another semester of this Spanish. We went over the coursework as we did in the SPAN101 but this time it was a bit more advanced. After all was said and done, I passed the class and I couldn't have done it without 2 semesters of help from Arlete. She made it clear that we would meet one day a week at a time acceptable for both of us and we would go over my assignments. It wasn't until small talk that I begin to notice that she was taking time out of her own classes that she could've used extra help to help me instead. I was very appreciative and thankful because I don't think I could've passed the class without meeting with her. I believe she would be a great asset to anybody who needs help with Spanish. She has quite the knowledge on the subject and knows how to relay the information.
Diane Brown is an extraordinary human being and an outstanding Spanish teacher. Her primary concern is what works best for the individual student and she is prepared to use multiple modalities recognizing the students’ visual, auditory and kinesthetic learning strengths. Spanish is learned as a living spoken and written language influenced by rich cultures. As her colleague and team leader, I was impressed by her enthusiasm, commitment to her students and her work ethic. As the parent three students, I was delighted by the depth and breadth their Spanish knowledge after just two years of Middle School Spanish.
I have been taking lessons at the Alliance Francaise for over 4 years now. I have greatly enjoyed the quality of the classes and the people I have met. The teachers are very enthusiastic, talented and make learning fun, especially on an adult level. Additionally, there is a weekly conversation class which is a great opportunity to put your skill set to use while discussing an interesting topic over a glass of wine. My weekly classes are a highlight- transporting me back to France for a few hours - Cest manifique!
We have had Mr. Kaplan since February, 2015 to teach French to our 11 year old son from the beginning level. My intention is to cover all material that a 1st year middle school teaches. He teaches my son one hour per week . He is a fabulous teacher, who teaches not just French pronunciation, but grammar and French culture. He always adds extra content that goes beyond the book. Now after 4-5 lessons, my son can count to 100 and conduct a simple conversation.
Samantha is tutoring my daughter in high school honors French. I like that she tailors her lessons to her ability, learning style and current school lessons. She is also warm and engaging. This has made such a comfortable learning environment. Samantha has been the right choice for us, but I can see her working very well with any age person who wants to to learn or brush up on their French.
Rebecca Oscar: “Trevor is a very capable tutor who extended his expertise to my children in an organized and thoughtful fashion. The materials he uses to teach writing are strong and established classical methods and his patience and kindness creates a valuable learning environment. Trevor is an approachable educator who is supportive and offers feedback to both parent and child. I highly recommend Trevor for anyone looking to strengthen their child's academic performance."
I have had Tutors for a few different languages (Japanese & Portugues) so I have experience in working with people of all skill levels trying to teach me a foreign language; that said, Candi is BY FAR the best tutor I've had the pleasure of working with. What makes Candi fit with me is her extreme flexibility. My job sends me on the road at a moments notice and each time I've had to change the schedule Candi has been able to happily accommodate me. A big part of Candi's approach is her positivity, which keeps me smiling and always looking forward to my class. When it comes to her approach to teaching as a tutor, Candi is professional, kind, and extremely knowledgeable. Tutoring an adult comes with specific challenges, dedication being the most destructive, but Candi's style inspires one to keep with the program and her abilities allow you to have successes on a weekly or bi-weekly basis further inspiring you to move forward. As you can probably tell I am very fond of and thankful for Candi, she's an amazing Teacher and the main reason why I'll be touring Spain next year with a great grasp of the local language. Definitely sign up for her program and you'll be speaking Spanish in no time!
Linda has tutored two of my sons over the last five years. My older son was able to improve his SAT scores as well as perfect his college application essay. He got into his first college choice. My younger son had problems expressing himself in writing and started working with Linda in 8th grade. Later he studied with Linda for ACT and got into his first college choice. Overall I was impressed with Linda's professionalism, great energy and great rapport with kids. They loved studying with her. In addition I could always rely on Linda being up to date on latest changes in SAT/ACT tests, which was tremendously helpful last year. We all feel very fortunate to have Linda as our ' Language Coach'.
Juan is a very professional and organized instructor. I took Spanish lessons with him and my level of proficiency increased dramatically since I needed to pass the ACTFL Intermediate High. In addition, he speaks Colombian Spanish which is one of the easiest varieties to understand. I strongly recommend him.
Olya is truly a miracle teacher! In just 10 lessons with Olya, I was able to improve my GMAT score by 150 points! I highly recommend Olya to anyone who wants to have a chance to study at a top MBA program.
I give insightful personal attention to music and dance students seeking instruction. I work with carefully and kindly with those in need of remediation and updating of their math and English skills for school and/or work. I apply my knowledge of good grammar and my strong communicative skills to academic works seeking publication, in line with my own solid, ongoing publication record and that of my clients.
I currently work at a private Catholic high school as a Spanish language teacher for levels 2 and 3 students. I have worked with students at all levels of Spanish in the past. As a young professional, I am constantly seeking new and creative ways to engage students with the language that may not be offered or available to them through traditional methods.
My work is very unique in that i offer both dance and language acquisition. I offer versatility in that I teach more than one style of dance and offer a variety of languages.
I do this in order to help others
As a bilingual teacher, I tutor in English and French. Students get individual attention and help so as to become more skillful in understanding and expressing themselves in English or French. Born in the U.S, I learned French as a child and lived for 14 years in French-speaking countries. I have also been teaching English for many years.
I am fluent in both English and German, offering English and/or German language tutoring as well as translation services. After completing my high school diploma at an English language international school in Germany, I spent a year assisting elementary teachers at the international school. Further, I have spent the last year of college in Boston tutoring college and graduate students in German.
