Alejandro is an amazing Spanish tutor!!! I am a beginner and was always intimidated about taking private Spanish lessons. He is very professional and has a great way of teaching his students. Always prepared and on time. I'm extremely happy with how much I've learned already ( I've had 8 classes so far) and would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking to learn Español. Muchas gracias Alejandro.
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!

I have received help with multiple writing assignments in school, ACT tutoring, and supplement and college essay help. I do not know what I would do without Lisa! She has helped me go from a B english student to an A student. She has also done a great job working with me on my supplements and college essay. My english teacher and college counselor loved them! For my ACT scores, she helped me get a 33 on my first ACT in the reading section and helped me go from a 24 to a 35 in the english section.
Not only was she my amazing drama teacher, she tutored me in math english and world history. Almost dropped out if it wasnt for her as she was more responsive than any guidance counselor ive ever encountered.
Anthony was my private in-home SAT tutor while I attended Westwood High School. He was an enormous help not only preparing me for my testing, but helping me write my college essay. He even helped me select the school that was the best fit for me! Great experience all around, two thumbs up!
We are so grateful to have found Sarah at the Word Barn! She served as a "writing coach" for our daughter while she was working on essays for some private school applications. Sarah was energetic, responsive, insightful and really challenged our daughter to ask important questions and push her creative limits. Our daughter felt Sarah was "engaging and fun" but also kept her motivated and on pace. She used a variety of techniques to help our daughter think through her writing process and come out with the best possible product. Overall, it was an outstanding experience for our daughter (she was accepted at her top-choice school!). We would highly recommend Sarah to anyone looking for an English expert. She's great.
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.
