I am being tutored in Spanish from Julissa. My sessions have been educational and fun. Julissa builds the curriculum around the students strengths. Although my tutoring session is 1 hour, she spends her own time at home preparing for my lessons. Julissa is professional and punctual and I am extremely proud to have her as my tutor.
Samina est superb. I am a beginner-intermediate. After just a few lessons, my vocabulary, pronunciation, and comprehension have improved greatly. Samina is especially skilled at teaching and reinforcing using a french accent!
Zahra's teaching style is singular: focused, fun and memorable. The sum of Zahra's lessons was massively comprehensive: phonetics, grammar, extensive vocabulary and basic conversation topics. After each lesson, Zahra provides notes, handouts and homework that help the student review the current lesson and learn the next lesson. Zahra is passionate about teaching and celebrates her students' progress. She understands her students' learning styles and customizes each lesson to help the students reach their end-goals. Zahra strives to make herself available for students to provide flexibility for busy schedules. In short, Zahra is an excellent teacher and without a doubt makes learning a new language fun and engaging.
Mrs. Mendez created a very specific custom plan for me and my goals for Spanish. I quickly became very comfortable with her training style and personality which allowed meto getthe most out of our lessons. I would recommend Mrs. Mendez to anyone looking for improvement in Spanish regardless of their current level of understanding.
I'm very pleased with my experience. It was surprisingly easy to set up the lessons, and Roberto quickly assessed my learning needs and prepared an appropriate course of study. Also, I'm enjoying the lessons immensely.
Love the lessons! Great pace of instruction-- just enough so that you make steady progress but I never feel rushed
Ben Schwabb/physics & engineering tutor is a real professional: knowledgable, concise, thorough, and presents a well-planned lesson each time. He helped my high schooler pull up his physics grade dramatically and pre-taught an electrical engineering course to my college-age son to get a jumpstart on his fall class. Alex/director is extremely responsive, provides quality tutors quickly, and stays in contact to ensure client satisfaction. Every company should operate this way.
I hired Patricia to help me improve my spoken Spanish in preparation for an upcoming conference in Argentina. We meet three times per week and converse about a wide range of topics, from technical workplace vocabulary to casual conversation. Patricia has been a tremendous help for me to refurbish my Spanish skills and improve my speaking precision. I hope to continue taking lessons even after the conference is over!
Jian Zhang is a fantastic teacher. he not only knows about the language, he also knows a lot about the history of China and the language itself. it's more than just learning a language, it's also about learning the culture.
I am pleased to highly recommend Nick Pino, who is my tutor for Spanish. Having needed to enter an intermediate Spanish course after several years away from the language, the completion of which is a graduation requirement for a top-10 international relations program, Nick is working with me to not only meet this requirement, but also to identify and hone the areas necessary to mastering proficiency. From our very first session, he immediately made it a priority to take the time to understand my unique, individual needs. Not surprisingly, I've found that my confidence with Spanish grows every time Nick and I meet, whether over coffee or in a more formal setting, and studying under him has been the best investment I've made in my personalized, life-long learning path -- to include the (traditional) classroom/institutional settings, which cost far more! Ultimately, when it comes to learning Spanish, Nick is the consummate language professional. He works with you to improve your knowledge, sharpen your language skills and transform you into a Spanish-speaker. Nick Pino is the real deal! - Ry
My experience with Erin was very brief but, very helpful and enjoyable. My 4th grader needed help with his writing. she did a very thorough assessment of his ability and proceeded. It was summer and we had a lot of travel and were not consistent clients. We are currently looking to rehire and work with her this winter/spring.
Ms. Belle has tutored my twins since September 2016. She is great with them and they love working with her. I have seen significant improvements in my kids' written ability in terms of clarity, volume, flow, and style. They are in the 5th Grade AAP Level IV program in FCPS and are now comfortable constructing multiple paragraphs to express their ideas or tell a story. My daughter is especially confident and excited in her writing since working with Ms. Belle. My son's ability to write about his passion for sports has soared. The effort is reflected in the last two report cards and in the grades that they receive on their language arts projects. I highly recommend Ms. Belle as a language arts tutor and we will continue to engage her services.
It was nice meeting Mrs. Wendy. She arrived on time and was very friendly. My son enjoyed the class and we plan to continue several lessons more until my son can be at the level he needs to be in.
Ms. Fraction arrived on time to perform an initial assessment on my 5 yr old for reading and math. During the 45 minute assessment she was able to keep my son engaged and read his body language so that he wouldn't get bored. The next day I received the assessment report with recommendations. Ms. Fraction express interest in receiving feedback from my son's teachers and results from state tests perform to further help my son.
I'm in the foreign service and have trained long-term for professional-level fluency in three different languages (including at the Foreign Service Institute twice). Hilda is one of the best and most knowledgeable language teachers I have had (which has been over two-dozen). She's highly professional and was able to gauge my training to my learning-style and abilities very quickly. In addition, her level of knowledge of the language was very highly regarded by other Spanish-language teachers I've had. If you've studied a foreign language at a high level, then you're probably aware that not every native speaker is equal in his/her grammatical knowledge and vocabulary (I once had a teacher in a different language who didn't have vocabulary outside of daily-life usage). Hilda has a very in-depth understanding of grammar as well as specialized vocabulary in diplomacy, politics, business/economy, science/technology, the environment, culture, and the issues of the day. Most of all, she is a joy to be around. My level of speaking and reading is now ABOVE the 3/3 requirement of my employer! I'm thrilled, and I can't recommend Hilda highly enough!
I started working with Theo in February 2015. I found him very engaged and very enthusiastic about the subjects he teaches. He has a very deep understanding of the language arts and always willing to work with you on a curriculum based on the student's needs. I am an adjunct instructor at UW, and I will gladly recommend Theo any day. Don't hesitate to call me for references. Best, Ilanko
He was so patient with me. He is well rounded and knowledgeable about the language. He is exciting to have as a tutor.
She was very patient and readily available!
