I have had a good experience with Dianne . She has the ability to focus on exactly what I need to improve my English skills. She is working with vocabulary, grammar, email, speaking and listening. She also works with cultural differences and helps explain what is currently happening in the United States.
Heather has been tutoring my 8-year old daughter in reading and math for over 2 years now. She came to us highly recommended by a fellow parent in our elementary school. We have been beyond pleased with her relationship with our daughter. Our child has multiple delays in academics and speech. Heather has been not only extremely patient, but she has customized her lessons to fit our daughter's needs. She is not afraid to change her plans to suit how our daughter will best learn at that time. She often revisits those original plans or lessons when she feels our daughter is ready for them. She also challenges our daughter when she feels it will best benefit her. She keeps our daughter engaged by learning through games and different activities, and she does movement breaks if needed. She is always on time for lessons and is very prompt about getting back to me if I have a question. Our daughter has made great progress under her wing, and we would highly recommend her!
Karissa providing tutoring services to our son Mark in English for at least 18 months to get him through elementary school and then middle school. No easy task due to his defiance. He is now a freshman in high school and has not had any problems in English. During the sommer holidays, Karissa taught all 3 kids typing. Diana is still fully proficient in typing with 10 fingers. Mark is much better than the 1 finger method and Benny may need another course, because he was too young. Karissa is well prepared, takes the job very seriously. Also, she is very flexible. Best of all, she is affordable. We are glad to have had Karissa as our tutor and will hire her again, if the need arises.
Very knowledgeable of both the Italian and English language. She is able to give great comparisons when trying to understand a concept. Joann is very friendly but also pushes you to achieve your goals. I have had several Italian tutors but she is my favorite.
Gabriela is a great teacher. What I learned came in handy when I went on my honeymoon to Puerto Rico and Miami. She takes the time to tailor lessons to your learning objectives and level. I would recommend her for anyone wanting to obtain a grasp of the Spanish language.
Aurelia taught me English. She is an outstanding, experienced, smart person, who loves to teach. She helped me to improve my pronounciation, my writing skills and conversation ability. She listens carefully and asks the right questions. I really recommend her lessons. Thank you Aurelia for helping me!
Barbara Rothstein is an excellent and professional language instructor. She has a thorough knowledge of German and many other languages. She understands how to adjust lessons for anyone from a young student to a business professional. Having her teach me German was a great and successful experience. I am pleased to recommend her without reservation for any level of instruction.
Excellent service, went above and beyond what I needed. Seriously helped with getting my foot in the door when it comes to jobs.
Awesome organization and teaching skills! A young but experienced English teacher, she has been volunteering and working among students of the English language for the past 4 years! I guarantee you will learn English from this professional!
At Koby Learning Group, your language learning and tutoring is facilitated by enthusiastic and friendly professionals in small group settings. Unlike large, expensive language classes, in our classes you will receive individual attention, evaluation, and coaching, whether in one-on-one private lessons or group lessons. You can concentrate and focus in our quiet classrooms, whereas tutoring/teaching agencies have you meeting in loud coffee shops or whispering to each other in libraries. We will meet your individual language learning or tutoring needs! Like all the teachers here at Koby Learning Group, I am a people person, and I enjoy the interaction of communicative language teaching. Helping students reach their tutoring goals and motivating them towards language achievement milestones is rewarding.

I make my lessons fun, while at the same time, making them personal and adapt them to the individual wishes, needs and ability of each student. I love the sweet smell of success when I see the smiles on my students as they see and feel their progress and the euphoria when they have reached their goal. I also like to see the face of disappointment on their faces when their lessons end.
I have had such a variety of experiences working with different ages and a variety of leanring goals that my students have had. I love the contact with the people. The children are fun; the students are motivated; the women I work with are such lovely people, and I like being able to introduce them to American history and culture. I really enjoy the conversations we have .
Over the years I have made a point of writing some of the material I intend to teach in class. I found this to be particularly useful in my Russia and Easter Europe elective. Eventually this led to write two books on Russian history. The first came out in 2003 and is entitled Renegades, Rebels and Rogues Under the Tsars. The second is due to come out this March and is entitled Enemies of the People Under the Soviets. This experience has helped me to guide many of my students, who often struggle to achieve their potential carrying out research projects and writing term papers.
Our school is different from all the other tutoring schools because it creates Individual Learning Plans for each student. Students do not have to waste time traveling. All of the materials are uploaded into the virtual classroom. Students do not need books or notebooks. They have a dashboard for their assignments. Students receive and ID and password, which they can use to log into their accounts and to the assignments. Once the students have enrolled into one of our programs they receive a troubleshooting lesson. Our IT team is always prepared to assist with all the questions and challenges. Students can contact us anytime. It can reach students all the time, all over the world, there are no boundaries. Anyone can join, at any time. We are advocates of GO GREEN, and we try to promote this idea in our school. The fact that all the books are uploaded into the program, and that the students do not need to have hard copies, is one step closer to promoting the GO GREEN idea. Once a week we have workshops about GO Green to familiarize our students with this idea. We are a multicultural learning environment and we bring the students into one classroom, day or night.
