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!!
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.
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 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.
Humberto has been a complete pleasure to work with. He is an excellent Spanish teacher and I have improved markedly since we started our lessons. I came in at an advanced level, looking for technical market specific Spanish terms to improve my work performance. He not only well informed on technical Spanish terms over a variety of subjects, but what he does not know he takes the time to research and arrive at the right answer. I have nothing but great things to say about Humberto. Hire him at any level of Spanish and you will not be disappointed.
Lenore is so professional, she is helping me to improve my English pronunciation, she takes time to explain to me every doubt I have. She has experience in teaching. I recommend to anyone for her methods.
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.
I went through Ray for an English tutor for my daughter. Both my experience dealing with Ray to assign a tutor specific in English-background in communications, IB and AP essay writing-as well as my daughter's experience with the tutor were outstanding. I wouldn't hesitate to work with this team again. Thank you, Ray!
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.
I've been Paul's student for 8 months and I want share the great experience of learning English from him. He has good sense of humor. It is very important factor when you choose the tutor as repeated English class can become boring. His class is different from others in that he would like to help the student to be adjusted to American culture. It was very helpful when he explains the American way of thinking and behavior. His class covers situational talk, grammer, pronunciation, writing, reading and everything. Also, he takes the tailored approach about class contents. He tries to listen to the student's needs and suggests the practices I can do for improvement. I highly recommand him!
I learned English well from my teacher in Customized English. He helped me with verbs and grammar. He also helped me speak and listen better. There was a lot of work. It was hard but it was worth. This is because I now understnd better. Thank you
HI, Mari has been tutoring my son for over a year now. My son is young but fairly advanced in Spanish. She put the time in to identify where he was solid and where he needed work. She is well organized and He really enjoys working with her. Recently she has begun tutoring my daughter in Spanish as well. My daughter has no Spanish background so it was a completely different level of tutoring from my son's but my daughter quickly improved her beginning Spanish and enjoys the time she spends with Mari every week. Highly recommended.
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!!!!
My english level and fluency has improved significantly after working for 6 months with Michael. I have reached an advanced level!
I feel so lucky to have found Katya to tutor me. Katya took ample time to discuss my language goals. It is great that she is working with me one-on-one to tailor the tutoring sessions to meet my needs. Not only is her comprehension of the finer points of English excellent, but she is also able to explain pronunciations clearly. She cares about the progress of her students and she assigns custom-tailored homework. On top of that, she’s also very knowledgeable about the language and about language theory. Highly recommend!
Ann was a wonderful tutor; she prepared me and guided me to take the best path for my TOELF test. I appreciated the simplicity she used in her explanations. Great advice, individual approach and positive attitude. Always on time, ready to help, intelligent and kind. She was patient and very efficient in her teaching methods. She was really encouraging. I highly recommend her Thank you, Ann!
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.
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!
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.
