As I was a bit skeptical to meet Craig as I had been to another public speaking coach and did not feel I improved the way I wanted to - I was more than excited how he taught me to prepare, deliver and get results far beyond my expectations. He is extraordinarily knowledgeable about public speaking as he speaks all over the world himself and transferred his skillset to me in a patient, empathetic and motivating way that made me feel fearless and confident. As someone who gives presentations to clients & colleagues and is a bit timid, I just finished giving my 2nd Speech; the reaction from the audience has been remarkable. As Craig says, you only give a "WOW" speech. I actually feel more confident in my personal life having the "swagger' Craig said I would get once I understood the nuances and subsequently the ability to execute those skills to my listeners (whether 100 or 1). Thank you Craig - you have literally changed my life. To those who might be considering a public speaking coach, I would just say that Craig is a "WOW" Coach.

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.

Our daughter worked with James directly for several months prior to taking the June ACT and as a result of the lessons including one-on-one sessions and follow-up work, her score jumped 10 points! I highly recommend James and his team!!!!

I have been studying ESL lessons with Maura for almost 3 weeks and I have been enjoying a lot. She is a great professor, very friendly, she has a huge experience and has been providing me lots of tips to improve my English. She has an excellent method to teach you during the conversations that make the classes be so funny and instructives at the same time.

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.

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.

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.

John is a very good teacher - he helped me gain confidence behind the wheel and on the road. I learned a lot in the few lessons that I've had with him, things that go beyond the license test. He is very patient, concise and attentive!

Mr. Parez was my tutor in high school for about a year to help me prepare for the SAT exam. The tutoring sessions were very convenient because they were done over Skype. Having the tutoring sessions done over Skype cut out time/money that would have been put into travel. Mr. Parez was always accommodating when it came to scheduling my tutoring sessions around my busy schedule. Mr. Parez had me take a preliminary SAT exam to see the areas of the exam I excelled in and which areas I struggled with. He helped me improve significantly in the areas I struggled in through various personalized lessons and homework assignments. Mr. Parez helped me to raise my score significantly. I believe that achieving a higher score on the SAT exam made me a stronger College applicant and helped me to get into 7 out of 7 Colleges that I applied to, including my top choice, of which I am now in attendance. I highly recommend Mr. Parez for any of you tutoring needs.

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!

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.

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 love Marion's French lessons! She is very attentive and prepared for every class. She also took my suggestion of my preferable way of learning a new language and catered every class to my needs. She is fun and open-minded. I highly recommend her as your French teacher!

Ann is an excellent choice for a speech coach. She listened to my needs and analyzed my speaking and delivery, noting areas for improvement. My individual sessions were focused on my presentation style, voice, and content of my presentations and keynote addresses. She is truly a Communications Artist!

I found Amanda as a tutor on an online platform about a year ago and I needed help with my writing skills in school. I need essay writing help as well as general assignment support. Through working with Amanda my grade went up and I have become a much stronger reader and writer. (Her motto: "Every good writer is a voracious reader" is so true) I actually learned to love reading more after working with this tutor. Her rate was cheap enough too for my mom to be able afford lessons every week. I will be working with this tutor on my SAT prep this whole semester too and looking forward to it. Highly recommend.
