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 is very polite, prompt and personable. I've only had 2 lessons so far, but I think he's a very good teacher.
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.
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.
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 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!
They helped me succeed on the TOEFL test. They also helped my skills with business English. I am thankful to them and recommend them.
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!!!!
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.
Mr. Treadway was a great tutor. I had a great experience with Mr. Treadway, everything he taught was explained clearly and thoroughly. He tutored me for the SAT test and as a result my grade was boosted by 300 points. Not only is Mr. Treadway a great tutor but he also knows how to interact with people and make his lessons captivating.
This is not your regular tutoring! This is brain science wrapped in an ACT lesson! I had my younger brother work with Katya for 6 months and she helped him make a huge improvement in his ACT Score. I have never seen my brother so happy with his results.
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.
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.
He is very professional. Love the techniques he uses to teach; he mainly teaches 12 year old's so his technique simplifies whatever you learning for any age. Also very punctual.

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 at the student's level. I try to make the lessons fun. We work with a textbook and also have free conversations.
