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.
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.
Tara is an amazing teacher, she is really well prepared and can understand what is the best way in which her student learn better. In my case I have to prepare TOEFL test because I want to apply to study abroad, I started with 64 points and after one year of classes (2 times per week) I increase by 30 points... She was capable to adapt and teach me in the way that I need... remarkable.... I really recommend you work with Tara if you want to improve your language skill.
Julia has recently begun to tutor me in Russian and I have already learned so much in just a few short weeks. You can see that she thoroughly enjoys helping you and can break down the information in a way that you can understand it. Since she has been tutoring me, my grades have improved and my oral strength in the Russian language is much more solid than before. I can only speak on behalf of her language skills, but she is an awesome tutor and highly recommended!
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 engaged Ms. Hoyle as an editor for my manuscript and was delighted with her sensitivity to the nuances of th English language. I have known her as a teacher of disadvantaged youth in the DC Public School system. She was well respected by her students for her substantive lesson plans and her committed desire to meet the needs of each student. I highly recommend Ms. Hoyle as a skilled and dedicated teacher, and as one who is gifted in the use of language.
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.
Ms. Erin is a great Reading and Math Tutor!
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!
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.
Great mandarin teacher with experience with small children.
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
I've only had one class so far but the first lesson exceeded my expectations and I'm feeling very hopeful for working with this tutor!
I had a trip to France and I needed to learn French. She thought me French and She showed me some great places in France. She is patient and a great teacher.
Since March 2018 I have been taking one-on-one weekly lessons with Shaoling Liu. During that time, I have gained much more confidence in my ability to pronounce tones, which is critical to being understood. She also places a premium on listening to conversations at the speed of “regular Chinese-language speakers” speaking. She is very enthusiastic about teaching Chinese, and is always willing to do more for the students who take the initiative. For example, if you want to write materials, she will correct them; if you record your own speaking she will listen to it; and in these cases she will give you feedback between classes. She has grown up using simplified Chinese, but she knows the traditional characters, which is essential for what I want to learn. One of her previous students is now working in Taiwan. I recommend her to individuals interested in learning to speak and understand Chinese.

I am very passionate about teaching but I'm also versatile. Though I like to use a certain teaching method, I will definitely make any needed adjustment that is compatible to the student's learning mode.
