I had felt very nervous just before i started to take English lessons from Raul. I had some anxiety and a negative thought about i will never learn English. After taking my first class, i changed my negative thought. I have been taking English class for 2 months and i feel the differences and improvements on my language skills. Raul is a perfect teacher. He is so professional and informed about how to teach. He makes me more courageous to learn English every day. He is also very patient, kind, friendly and understanding. He shares all his informations, sources and experiences about what you want to learn. Learning with him is a big joy. I feel not only happy but also very lucky to know him and to take class from him.
Jeremy has helped me extensively in both math and english. Not only has he helped me improve my grades but he has helped me get ahead of my classmates. Currently Jeremy is helping to prepare me for the ACT and I am prepping for an excellent score! Lastly, Jeremy makes himself available to help me at any time, including outside our sessions.
It is hard to find a good English teacher, but James is excellent. He knows the elements of good writing and can present abstract topics really well. James never gives away answers. He directs by asking insightful questions so you learn to become critical thinkers. James has taught all my three kids, and I cant be more pleased with their results. If you are looking for a tutor, think no more. Hire James! He is the best! We just got notice that our youngest got accepted to Cornell!
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.
I've been taking private Spanish lessons with Laura for 3 months and I can't recommend her enough. She is professional, funny and flexible. Our sessions are tailored to my interests, and she truly understands languages and how to teach them effectively. I recently went on a trip to Cuba and could tell a major improvement in my Spanish after only taking lessons with her for a short time. Thank you, Laura :)
My daughter is extremely happy with their lessons and improving her English In very impressive way
Jennifer is a smart, communicative, and excellent English tutor! She is knowledgeable about many kinds of topics such as cultures and arts, but not just limited to these. She is also very much interested in different cultures of other countries and always tries to understand international people from that point. I truly recommend her as a private English tutor to anyone who wants to improve English communication skills for school or work. I bet you will see improvement!!
Karina is top notch. I was not sure what to expect with distance learning via Skype, but she is well prepared and her website's virtual classroom in combination with Skype is as good as being in the same room. I would recommend Karina / Chelingua to anyone interested in a structured approach to learning Spanish or continuing their studies in Spanish (as is the case with me).
I've collaborated with Spencer on screenplays, essays, and other projects. He is an excellent creative partner. Spencer is a talented writer. He has a unique command of the English language. He is also a great communicator.
Mr. Connor has been working with my children the last two years. He is an amazing teacher who is very patient and kind to my children. He is teaching them Chinese, singing, drum and guitar. Unlike other teacher we had in the past, Mr. Connor incorporate games and songs into all his lessons which makes language learning much more interest. My children adores Mr. Connor and looking forward to work with him every time.

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.
They helped me succeed on the TOEFL test. They also helped my skills with business English. I am thankful to them and recommend them.
Francesca is delight to work with, I hired her for private Italian lessons and she is very patient and enthusiastic while teaching. As a PR professional my schedule gets quite crazy and she is willing accommodating your schedule. Very sweet and intelligent, will continue my lessons with her!
I really enjoy my lessons with Martha. She is very helpful and its great that she has been able to tailor our lessons to my specific needs and goals for bettering my grasp of Spanish. It is really clear that she is a great teacher who cares for her students. I would definitely recommend her to others who want to improve their skills.
My english level and fluency has improved significantly after working for 6 months with Michael. I have reached an advanced level!
I am in the U.S. just for 5 months. I am learning the grammar and writing in an English school. But I need to learn to speak. Mrs. Thiele has taught me to speak correctly. She is just awesome. She has taught very well and her personality also very great. I have learned a lot from her. I appreciate her so much. My speaking is getting better because of her lesson. Thanks

I highly recommend her Thank you, Ann!
