Ms Kelly is amazing, she connects with the person she is tutoring in a friendly level. She loves what she does and my son loves her too. He feels comfortable with her. She explores the likes of her students and the tutoring lessons revolve around the needs and the likes. I absolutely love her and will recommend her to everyone!
I would like to start off by saying, I was very nervous about hiring a tutor for my first grader! I wasn't sure about the dynamics of my daughter with someone she didn't know in our home working on "school stuff" that was already a topic of anxiety. But all that went out the window when we met Matt! My husband and I sat at the table with Matt and my daughter and presented her strengths and weaknesses. Matt jumped RIGHT IN and picked up on exactly what she needed help with within minutes. He kept it fun and exciting for her, even when she started to get tired. He used a calm voice and steady lessons to keep her engaged and LEARNING. Matt came right down to a first graders level and used simple words and instruction. After only two hours and the end of our session, she was mocking Matt's instruction and repeating numbers and sequences to her dad and I with confidence! Matt continued to encourage her through out the lesson and kept thing light and humorous. Evee was laughing and smiling with him from the first moment. My daughter is quite shy around strangers and by the time Matt left, out daughter not only shook his hand, but gave him a giant hug and asked me when he was coming back again. Matt is an amazing tutor and I would very HIGHLY recommend him to any parent looking for the extra help. He was energetic and made learning fun for my daughter. After only two hours, she had A LOT more confidence about Math and numbers and coins. Without any hesitation, I would tell any parent to not be nervous about hiring a tutor, and to feel assured and relaxed to hire Matt. There is not a single thing I would critique about his lesson or his ability to work with a 7 year old. He got right down to work and didn't waste a single moment of time. His lessons were full and easy-going and targeted our specific area of need. My husband and I absolutely loved working with Matt, he was an absolute pleasure. I would highly recommend him to any one! Thank you Matt and WyzAnt for putting our fears at ease and helping my daughter get up to par! Confidence in school work for my daughter is PRICELESS to me and I have Matt and WyzAnt to thank for taking a lot of the fear and panic out of getting there ourselves. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
I had a great time learning french with Marianne. She was able to prepare me for a two week trip to France with a handful of lessons. I definitely recommend her!
I have been learning Italian with Daniele for one year now and it has been an extremely pleasant experience. I am learning as a hobby and at my own pace and Daniele has been very accomodating with my schedule and personal needs. He makes me feel comfortable with the challenge of speaking in a foreign language which can be very intimidating. He also holds me accountable if he sees that I am lacking with my independent study and activities that he recommends. We all need to be held accountable to achieve our goals! I highly recommend Daniele as a tutor, teacher or interpreter.
Laura is the absolute best - she contacted me within hours of submitting the initial request, was incredibly personable, and very flexible on when we could meet. Her lessons are interactive and meant to simulate real life situations such as going to the market, and map navigation - not at all 'class-roomy', while still covering the important basics and phrases, as well as grammar. She tailors the lesson and the materials to me to meet what I want to learn, and the level. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for personal French lessons, at any age!
My impression after the first lesson: It seems my granddaughter and I have made a great choice in deciding to hire Susan! We are excited because she has already been helpful and can see why she has a successful track record in ACT preparation and mathematics tutoring.
Mariela moves at my pace and addresses any questions I have very clearly. I had Spanish in school many, many years ago. The past few years I have been travelling in South and Central America and found the language barrier exhausting. Mariela is helping me not only with all the rules and grammar of Spanish but also with conversational aspect.
He studied abroad in Costa Rica for a semester and was fully immersed in the language through school and his home stay. He is confident with his Spanish and very aware of many misconceptions of the language. He knows grammar well as he took advanced courses where he was required to write at the college level. As a fluent Spanish speaker I would recommend his help as a tutor or translator.
It has only been 2 lessons and I'm loving it. She is a very nice, patient and dedicated teacher. I would really recommend her.
I am a qualified teacher from Latin America who teaches Portuguese and Spanish for all levels and ages. With the methodology used, you will really learn how to speak Spanish/Portuguese. It is understandable that students want to understand and make themselves understood in a cultural context. Of course grammar is necessary for this, but you will enjoy the classes while you learn! I have been teaching Spanish and Portuguese for 15 years and have developed a great many resources to make the lessons fun and lively. The classes are highly focused on the development of communication skills (speaking, listening, reading, and writing). As a teacher, I have won several quality certifications for the excellent results in the educational field.
As a Spanish translator and TEFL student, I provide services in document translation for English to Spanish and Spanish to English and tutoring in learning both languages for nonnative speakers.

Learn English in context through listening, speaking, reading, writing and doing! I have taught ESL for over 25 years. My bachelor's degree is in magazine journalism, and I am licensed as an English teacher.
I interpret, translate, teach and tutor Spanish. I am certified with the Ohio Board of Education and have more than 10 years of full-time teaching experience. My teaching licenses are for Spanish pre K-12 and ElEd 1-8. I look forward to hearing from you. I only have three more classes to get my master's in Spanish literature. Next fall, I'll be going to live and teach in Mexico, and there, I will get my Phd. I am in a wheelchair, but I don't think that matters, unless there are stairs.
I am compassionate about everything I do. As an engaged student, I work my very best to be at the top, and succeed in and outside of the classroom. I hope to make learning easier and interactive for students, as they complete their high school careers, and become interested in university studies.
