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 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!!!!
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.
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.

Clemencia was a wonderful Spanish language teacher! I had elementary working knowledge, and she was able to build upon that to help strengthen my conversation skills, vocabulary, and conjugation. She is very patient and encouraging, which is necessary when trying to learn a new language.
Akiha has been very supportive in her Japanese lessons. She has a very flexible schedule and is very willing to work with you and match her lessons with your personal style of learning. She is very patient and strives to meet the students' needs during each lesson. Because of her help I have been rapidly progressing towards my goal of becoming fluent. I think that she is a very suitable tutor for any level!
Michael is a very experienced teacher. We are developing a study plan for my teenage Chinese stepdaughter to master the English language. He spends hours preparing material for sessions with students that he tutors. He is patient and he understands the needs of non-English speaking Asian immigrants. He is truly a gentleman and shows great respect when he communicates with others, no matter what their age, race or nationality. Thank you, Michael, for all that you do.
My daughter (7yrs old) had her first lesson with Chiaki. She had fun and is looking forward to her next lesson. Chiaki is definitely great with kids.
Best thing for my child. The lessons were fun and engaging. Highly recommend.
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!
Working with Humberto has been fantastic. He will structure lessons to what you want from the experience. For me we are working on strong foundational knowledge of Spanish so that I can converse causally and in a business environment. I am quite enjoying the sessions.
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.
Even though I have lived in America for a few years, when I needed to study for the GRE I knew that I would need a tutor to get good score. Dwight was a fun and knowledgeable tutor who makes lessons interesting and really focused on my weaknesses to help me get better. I would recommend him to my best friend.
I understand that content is equally important to test technique. Studying isolated patches of topics without connecting them to test strategy does not spell success in the game of standardized test taking.
I teach business English. I teach American English for both reading comprehension and composition writing.
