Dan is a great lesson teacher - his lessons are very helpful and you come away learning a lot each time. If you're ever confused about something, he'll explain it in fifty different ways until you understand. Lessons are also fun because it's not all playing, and a lot of discussion is involved when talking about theory. Dan is personable and helpful when it comes to new concepts and improving your technique, sound, or improvising. I truly felt like every time I walked away from a lesson, I was a better player and I was able to apply what he taught me in other ensembles. Dan's really great. Highly, highly recommend.

Anna has been tutoring my two nine-year-old twins in writing and reading comprehension since September of this year. She works to help them develop their ideas and improve their writing skills by assigning them readings along with writing assignments. She challenges my kids to understand the deeper messages in books and to define new words and literary devices. She comes prepared to every session on time and with personalized lesson plans. Notably, she helps my kids with occasional homework and test taking strategies. Anna is a kind and caring tutor who enjoys the personal aspects of tutoring and takes on challenges of teaching. She understands the strengths and the weaknesses of my kids and patiently inspires them to grow and persevere. I understand that in addition to English Anna also does tutoring in Math. You will be very pleased with her tutoring style and her personality.

Cheryl is the best English teacher I've ever had. When I came to the USA from Russia, the biggest surprise was the language barrier. I had been studying English since middle school, always had good grades, and I thought I was pretty good in English. Real-life English was clearly different from what I’ve been taught. I didn't understand common idioms and casual expressions, and, most importantly, I was too afraid to speak. Luckily, I took a speaking conversational English class taught by Cheryl and then a couple of private lessons with her. Cheryl is a patient, organized and understanding tutor. She is a great conversation partner and always asks what you are interested in. She focused on my individual needs and encouraged me speak more and express my opinion freely. Also she taught me tons of useful expressions and answered all my stupid questions about American culture :) Of course, my English isn’t perfect, but I see tremendous improvements and I am much more confident about my speaking.

    I've tried several German tutors in the past, and Malte has been seriously the best. I'm at beginner level. He made sure suit my needs (emphasis on speaking & correct pronunciation). Malte was super patient with me, while making certain that I fully understood grammar & sentence structure. Plus, since he is a native speaker, he taught me so many local idioms and fun, useful cultural facts that can't be taught in a book. I know that with past native-speaker language tutors, there's always somewhat of a language barrier - but Malte's English is near perfect! I would give more than 5 stars if I could!

    This tutor was awesome! She edited a story I wrote and gave me excellent feedback. With her help the story rose to a new level so that even former critics liked it.
