I have been working with Jim on preparing for the SAT and ACT tests since August 2013. For the first couple of months, Jim and I had our sessions on the Upper West Side. As I have to take the GW Bridge to get to Manhattan, I sometimes ran into traffic related problems that prevented me from getting to the city on time to meet him. Jim was very understanding of this, and suggested that we have our lessons on Skype instead. He is very flexible as far as scheduling, which is very convenient for a Junior with a hectic schedule. After taking a practice test, Jim and I went over the questions that I missed. I read the questions out loud because he did not have a copy of the test booklet. I actually wasn't surprised that he was able to tell me all of the correct answers because he has been teaching me all kinds of fool-proof strategies to find the right answer. Jim has helped me raise my composite ACT score by 7 points. Additionally, he has been helping me tremendously throughout this college process. Overall, Jim is a pleasure to work with as he is honest, smart, and encouraging.

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.

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!!!!

Mr. Treadway was a great tutor. I had a great experience with Mr. Treadway, everything he taught was explained clearly and thoroughly. He tutored me for the SAT test and as a result my grade was boosted by 300 points. Not only is Mr. Treadway a great tutor but he also knows how to interact with people and make his lessons captivating.

I learn English from Connor. He proves what a professional great bilingual teacher should be and opens my eyes to the American culture. I have a full time job, he always tries his best to get our class arranged. By using various appropriate methods: reading, dialogue, writing, discussion, he makes my learning interesting and helpful. I got admitted to Columbia University thanks to his help and encouragement. He inspires me to love learning, explore new fields as well.

I always wanted to speak French but was intimated to start learning as an adult. Dr. V. was the answer for me! He was so patient with me and very encouraging with every word, phrase and sentence. A really great teacher overall!

Michael is a very experienced teacher. We are developing a study plan for my teenage Chinese stepdaughter to master the English language. He spends hours preparing material for sessions with students that he tutors. He is patient and he understands the needs of non-English speaking Asian immigrants. He is truly a gentleman and shows great respect when he communicates with others, no matter what their age, race or nationality. Thank you, Michael, for all that you do.

Francesca has been my teacher for about 10 lessons. Needed some class to improve my Italian for my trip to Rome and to Sicily. Francesca was the best ever . She prepared each lesson carefully, made me comfortable and explain me everything I wanted to know. It was easy with her because she is Italian native but her English is great too. That allowed us to communicate when Italian itself was not sufficient enough for me. I highly recommend her, she is a responsible young girl, full of initiative and willing to teach proper Italian in a most comfortable way and environment possible . Five star teacher for me! Outstanding.

    I'm Polish. I’ve lived in NY for several years and attended various English courses. Kathy was my first teacher who concentrated primarily on speaking. We worked a lot on my pronunciation and general speaking skills for over two years. I have learned a lot not only about English grammar but also enriched my knowledge about the culture and habits of Americans. Kathy was very patient, a good listener and interesting to work with. I’ve really enjoying the lessons and spent very nice time with her. She was easy to contact and very flexible. I’m glad to have met her not only as a teacher but also as a person. After all these years we are still in touch. I hope she continues to teach in the future and I would definitely recommend her.

      About

      I am a Long Island based instructor and certified to teach English as a second language; this includes English literacy and reading. I have taught at a community college in New York and really enjoy watching the light bulb flash when a student understands something new. Also, I have been a swimming instructor and a lifeguard for seven years. I've coached and worked with all levels and ages. I am a motivator and your cheerleader, and I want to help you accomplish your goals.

      About

      I understand that content is equally important to test technique. Studying isolated patches of topics without connecting them to test strategy does not spell success in the game of standardized test taking.

      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
