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 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.
As part of my job in communications with the Auschwitz Institute for Peace and Reconciliation, an international non-profit organization dedicated to the prevention of genocide and other mass atrocities, I took Spanish lessons with Laura multiple times per week from January of 2016 to December of 2017. While I began this endeavor with a rudimentary understanding of Spanish, my abilities – especially with regards to my professional duties – rapidly improved. We worked together on a variety of communications products and translations (both English-Spanish and Spanish-English). Due to the nature of my work, translated items featured specialized political and diplomatic vocabularies. Over the course of our time together, we synthesized and translated a wide variety of documents including interviews with prominent actors in the field, recurring reports on efforts for the prevention of mass atrocities, reporting on events in the field, newsletters and other electronic communications, as well as a wide variety of other documents as they arose. These efforts required fast-paced work to meet tight deadlines and necessitated an understanding of concepts and vocabulary used in the field of human rights, international humanitarian law and mass atrocity prevention. The translated documents have been used for a wide variety of training initiatives for government officials around the world and by partnered entities, such as the Latin American Network for Genocide and Mass Atrocity Prevention. In short: Laura provides a high-quality service and I would certainly recommend her to anyone (or any organization) looking for a private teacher or tutor, especially in the context of communications. She is very consistent and always came equipped with any customized materials or background research necessary to maximize the productivity of our sessions.
I took lessons with Eliana through skype and i learned so much more than in the classes i had attended previously. She is an excellent teacher!
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 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.
My daughter is extremely happy with their lessons and improving her English In very impressive way
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.
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 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.
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!
I highly recommend Marisa as a tutor. She has helped both of my sons (11 and 14) tremendously. Not only does she gauge their needs perfectly, she also provides exemplary descriptions of those needs (for you) and how she will address them. And her plan is always amazing and spot on. From reading comprehension to writing, Marisa has a knack for bringing out the best work in a child and inspiring him to work harder and smarter. She addresses macro issues as well as nuances, and inspires the kids she tutors to want to do more. It's nothing short of a miracle. And the boys LOVE working with her. If you're looking for someone to help your child, Marisa is the best.
Sandy has been an amazing teacher to our toddler, who has made excellent progress since the time we started working with her. I would definitely recommend Sandy for anybody who are either just starting out or trying to improve their English language skills.
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.
Mr. Michael is an excellent tutor. He puts his students first and has been very compassionate towards me during the time he conducted lessons with me. He never made money his priority. Whenever we had lessons, he would always be prepared and bring enough material that would carry me throughout the week. I am extremely grateful for his service and I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for an excellent tutor.
My english level and fluency has improved significantly after working for 6 months with Michael. I have reached an advanced level!
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.
