Raul was timely and very polite and welcoming. I instantly felt comfortable and eager to learn. He's very fluent in Spanish and English and also very knowledgeable in both languages. The best thing is that it's not about the money for him..teaching is his passion and he loves to help others. I learned so much in so little time. He's legit. No puedo esperar hasta la proxima!!
I took English lessons with Maura for 6 months. During the classes, we put the emphasis on conversation. We talked about a large number of topics : Politics, Society, day to day life... It gave me much more confidence in my relations with English speakers and, coming from a European country, it also helped me to understand better the American culture. Maura is open, friendly, she makes you feel at ease and she enjoys teaching ESL.
Humberto is very polite, prompt and personable. I've only had 2 lessons so far, but I think he's a very good teacher.
Meena tutored my 7th grade daughter in English Comprehension at my home for about two hours at a time. She is always on time, and she always pushes my daughter to do better.
I have a great experience while working on English writing and speaking with Bina. She's very responsive and professional. She helped me identify my area to improve through listening to me and reading my writing samples, provide valuable feedback, and customize the materials/sessions to focus on those areas. I enjoy my learning experience with Bina and strongly recommend her.
Dr.V is an incredible French teacher. I really enjoy his teaching technique. I am confident that if I continue my lessons (2x a week) for an indefinite amount of time I will be fluent in reading, writing and conversation. I recommend Dr.V without reservation. I can't wait for my next lesson!!! Merci!!!
Mari has been tutoring my kids for some months and always comes on time, prepared, and motivated. She plans the lessons with their differing abilities in mind, and keeps the learning engaging. It's working well for us.
We all know when it comes to the SATs there is guaranteed to be a lot of stress. As a sixteen year old high school student going through the SAT process, I can vouch for this. My anxiety began months ago. I admired people who had started their SAT prep a year before, while envying students who were just naturally good test takers, scoring 2000 and up; however, when you dont fit into either of those categories you start wondering what now? At that point an SAT tutor seemed like a good idea. Enter Danny Ahn. The first time I met Danny, I was unsure what to expect. He understood my confusion and began to structure a plan of action. He soon established the level I was at in English and Math, and then focused in. After a few sessions I began to understand the kind of approach required of me. I have worked with Danny Ahn weekly since around late October or early November, 2013 and our work is ongoing. It is now Feb. 17, 2014. I have found Danny to be a good communicator and listener. He is dedicated, nurturing, focused, and hardworking, going beyond his allotted time with me to help me achieve my goals. He genuinely cares about my mental well being as well as my academic standing. He is readily available on the phone and via text, and has proven to be accommodating with regards to scheduling. I believe that Danny is pushing me in the right direction and I am feeling increasingly more confident with regards to the dreaded upcoming SATs. Danny has an excellent understanding of the SAT requirements and I feel that with his continued guidance I can achieve my goals.
Luanna is a fantastic language instructor! She fully immerses her student in the Portuguese language; however, she is careful to tailor his or her study to the specific student's needs and retention. I have enjoyed my lessons with her to date and eagerly await my future ones!
Robert teaches Italian lessons. I am a terrible student frequently confusing my High School French with what Robert patiently teaches me. He is good humored, well prepared and pushes me along just enough. I am never frustrated but always encouraged. Robert always is smiling and I never feel silly with my pronunciation. Robert really is a great teacher. I wish I had met him years ago before my first trip to Italy. I look forward to my lessons all week. Bravo Robert!!!!
Great instructor, very clear teaching techniques and a please to take classes with. Highly recommended!
The tutor at Cross Cultural Communications Schools, Mrs Nelson, is very knowledgeable and professional. She is not only passionate about teaching Spanish language but also the culture. She sincerely cares about helping me to learn the language. She is very friendly and enthusiastic. The classes are very interesting and the price is reasonable. I highly recommend Cross Cultural Communications School to those who is looking to learn Spanish.
Mr. Michael is an excellent tutor. He puts his students first and has been very compassionate towards me during the time he conducted lessons with me. He never made money his priority. Whenever we had lessons, he would always be prepared and bring enough material that would carry me throughout the week. I am extremely grateful for his service and I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for an excellent tutor.
I love the Italian language and culture and realized my speaking abilities from my university studies were rustier than I thought during a recent trip to Italy this past summer. Upon my return to the States, I immediately sought private tutoring and I could not be more satisfied in finding Mariateresa. I've seen vast improvement in my comprehension and speaking since I started taking lessons with her. The first couple months were focused on fundamentals and book work but now each lesson begins with about 30 mins of conversation (in Italian of course) before diving into books. I cannot recommend Mariateresa enough regardless of your comprehension level because not only does she challenge me every week to improve my skill but the time spent with her is very enjoyable and something I look forward to every week.
Professor Mary is an amazing educator. She is very dedicated to her profession. As an ESL student I had difficulties in my English composition courses. Luckily, I met Professor Mary. My writing has been improved with her help. She is not only an educator, but also a great friend!
She is an amazing teacher! Really knows how to take care of her students needs to enjoy playing the cello. I have had several teachers over the years, by far Valeriya is the best! She has a great sense of humor, very professional, love the fact that she is computer savvy and sends lesson plans via email, she has really turned around my way of practicing, I am really focused and she pays attention to details.
Frank is very knowledgable in many subjects. He helped our son with math, science, social studies, and English comprehension. That much knowledge is rare.
Linda is a professional of the highest order. She was genuinely interested in my development as a student and as a professional. She was always looking for ways to improve the class and learning environment, as well as to adapt the curriculum to my needs and interests. In addition, she always treated me with the uttermost respect. Finally, I must add that Linda not only has an acquaintance of the English language but also of literature. Thanks to Linda’s assignments and recommendations, I discovered several great authors and books that I was unaware of.
exellent nothing but a great teacher. She knows her Spanish grammer and her English grammer nothing but praises. Thank you liliana and now finally. I'm speaking fluently in Spanish
