David's awesome! very knowledgable , friendly and a truly inspiring teacher. Unfortunately, I don't have time to commit to voice lessons right now, but once I do I most certainly will call David!
Before I, the student, began working with Jeremy, I was having little to no improvement in consecutive SAT exams. I was having so much trouble trying to figure out the proper way to study, in how I could improve myself and jump into the 1500s which was my goal. However, I was leveling out at about the high 1300s, with a loss on what to do. Kaplan Test Prep did not help much, as they provided often passive learning strategies, and failed to really help the student with effective, real-working strategies. Jeremy Fine knows the ins and the outs of not only the SAT but the ACT as well. His vast knowledge about the exams, combined with his professionalism in them and in colleges globally (college prep as well), made him the perfect tutor that ultimately improved my test score by more than 100 points in the span of 5 weeks! The strategies that he gave me, and the vigor that he gave every motivating speech with, really helped me learn how to tackle every single question. I would recommend Jeremy to anybody who really wants to improve with a passion. Obviously, Jeremy is not a miracle maker, who can automatically increase a score by hundreds without the student doing any work. I worked very hard, and Jeremy takes that very seriously. But coming from a kid who finds standardized testing almost impossible, he really seemed like a magician to me.
Roy created a public speaking class for the corporate training department back at the previous place that I worked. He would assign simple topics such as “What’s your favorite activity? What do you do to de-stress?” each week and we would just talk about them in a conference room. Each week Roy would give tips and comments on our performance and also have us practice various skills such as stage movement, hand gestures, pauses, and eye movement. When I presented my first of these mini-speeches in front of everybody, I was super nervous, such that I was staring at the floor a lot of the time and my speech came out very monotonous. At the end of the six-week training, I was able to deliver a very natural and fluent speech with confidence and a smile, as well as utilize my hand gestures to convey emotion and grab the audience's attention. Overall, the six-week training was highly beneficial and I would recommend anyone who wants to improve their public-speaking skills to take a session with Roy, especially those who suffer with Glossophobia.
Anna is a valuable yoga instructor. Thank you Anna for wonderful private yoga lessons it is always exiting for me and makes me peaceful and much happier too. Thank you again .(-:
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.
Laura is the best Spanish tutor I could have asked for. She takes her time with the lessons and shows careful attention with grammar, pronounciation, and goes above and beyond to make the lessons very interactive and entertaining. Using various techniques from music to poetry to specific situational and cultural references, Laura has also helped me notice my own improvement. She keeps you very motivated to learn and always looking forward to your next lesson!
My 4-year-old daughter has been taking piano lessons with Dillon for several months. He is devoted to making sure that my daughter is engaged in her lessons and learns both technique and theory. Even before working with us, Dillon recommended the right type of keyboard and piano workbook to purchase. He is very patient and dedicates a great amount of effort to instructing our daughter (and two of her 4-year-old friends). He is firm and keeps her focused (but not too firm that he intimidates her). Finally this week, my daughter went to her room and practiced by herself and is now able to play "Old MacDonald". Yay for Dillon!
One of the best tutors my daughter ever had. She struggled with the sat for a year until we found him. He made lessons around her needs and that helped her do well. She was able to get into the college she wanted.
Tomas is great to work with. I have been seeing him for speaking lessons. He is extremely perceptive -- getting to root of why I speak/gesture/act as I do, as opposed to simply relying on cookie-cutter suggestions. He will challenge you to go outside of your comfort zone, with positive results. He is very in-tune with his clients, has a good attitude, and is responsive to messages.
I found Ms. Klein to be a pleasure to work with. She is kind and experienced person knowing how to deal with elementary level students. She provides a positive learning environment for our son while working on his writing skills. I am highly recommending Ms. Klein as a writing tutor. She has helped our son grow as a student. He built up his writing skills. Week after week his fantasy of writing is reaching higher levels. Thanks to Ms. Klein our son found a pleasure in his writing essays. He looks forward to working with her. Lenore is very experienced and excellent at discerning your child’s needs and tailoring the lessons accordingly.
Justin is a true pro. Very valuable coaching in preparation for a business presentation I was giving. He asked good questions to understand the context of the situation and tailored his coaching to that specific opportunity. Great insights on the importance of the physical/mental connection needed to help make a successful speech. Always on time. I highly recommend Justin to any interested in improving their public speaking skills.
Robert is enthusiastic and insightful. He is direct and uses well every minute of the lesson. He is positive and encouraging as I read out loud, answer questions and do exercises. His enthusiasm is motivating and his specific comments aid in my understanding of how the language works. His professionalism is complimented by a friendly personality. I look forward to my lessons each week and highly recommend him to other individuals who want to learn to speak and to read Italian.
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 ;)
Sandy is a wonderful ESL teacher! My 3 year old son enjoys her lessons. She always prepares fun materials for kids and knows how to deal with young kids very well. Soon after my son started taking her class, his preschool teachers noticed his improvement of English!
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.
Stacie is an expert at helping kids learn how to read. My child leaves each session with new strategies to improve phonetic understanding. She reviews the concepts and following week’s homework with us after each lesson so we understand the progression and how we can support our child’s experience. My child adored her and looked forward to the weekly session.
Respect his ambition as an actor 100%. I intend on doing a lesson with him very soon.
I took Italian lessons with Francesco for a few months and I have to say that he's a really good teacher. He has a very efficient method, I noticed a fast improvement in my skills. Also I had a good time during the lessons cause Francesco is nice and fun!
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!
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.
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.
