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'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 :)
I like working with Lenore. English is my second language, and Lenore is teaching me how to properly pronounce words and sounds in order to reduce my accent. She is professional, patient, punctual, and I highly recommend her services.
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!!!!
I have taken a few language lessons over the years. Ju An is an excellent teacher. The methodology used (Chinese made easy) is efficient -if you do your homework- and the lessons are intense. Ju An bombards you with questions/ exercises to help improve your speaking as fast as possible. I highly recommend her. Reading this back it could sound scary. Ju An adapts to your level of course. But you will be tired at the end ;)
My daughter is extremely happy with their lessons and improving her English In very impressive way
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.
Jim was my SAT tutor for the December test. During my time with Jim I gained lifelong academic skills. His teaching methods are personalized according to your unique learning style and his lessons and explanations are concise and thorough. Jim gave me the confidence I needed to do well on the SAT. I highly recommend Jim as a tutor for anyone who is looking to greatly improve their SAT score.
Kate did a great job of assessing my English skill level and identifying the parts that I need to work on. She explained things clearly and provided me with many examples and suggestions to improve my English. I look forward to working with her again soon!
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.
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).
Stacey tutored my two dyslexic sons from elementary through middle school. Utilizing her deep knowledge of the Orton Gillingham approach, she de-mystified the English language for them. She systematically taught and reinforced the phonetic underpinnings of language until they were mastered. Under her expert and caring tutelage, both my sons made tremendous strides in reading and writing. My older son graduated from college and the younger one is a freshman.
She is the best teacher I have ever had , my conversational spanish improved a lot in the short period I studied with her. That's because she knew how to target my weak points. Thank you very y espero verte pronto
I like my ESL lessons with Marion. She taught me not only the language but also the American culture, which I'm very interested in. Besides that, she is such a nice person that talking with her is always enjoyable.
Translating; teaching, French
Victoria is a wonderful teacher and person. We started understanding and combining simple phrases while travelling in Spanish speaking country after couple of months of her lessons. And after a year I already had working knowledge of Spanish.
My english level and fluency has improved significantly after working for 6 months with Michael. I have reached an advanced level!
Mrs. Schoenwald was my 10th and 11th Grade english teacher at a special needs High School. Mrs. Schoenwald's instruction was always clear and concise; when focus was lost Marna was able to easily redirect the class back to the lesson. With Marna's guidance and teaching style our class was able to excel and enjoy learning even when what was being taught (book being read or essay) was not interesting or engaging.
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.
I'm Polish. Ive 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. Ive really enjoying the lessons and spent very nice time with her. She was easy to contact and very flexible. Im 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.
