Theo was very prompt and well-worded in our communications, and set me up with a tutor in my area quickly. I'm looking forward to more of my Japanese language lessons!
Learning English with Rebecca is fun. She started with doing an assessment of my level and adjusted to it, so we could pick up right there with improving my English. In our teaching lessons, we concentrated on different topics, such as idioms, and had different study books that I used for my homework as well. Thanks to Rebecca, I could expand my vocabulary and grammar. During the conversations with her that are part of her teaching, she kindly corrected mistakes I made what helped me to improve as well. She is a very nice person that creates a good atmosphere, what is an enjoyable experience and helped me in improving my English. In addition to educating the language itself, she also tried to impart additional information for example about the country and region where I live now to better acquaint myself with the environment. I can recommend her as teacher.
I found Louisa's tutoring services very helpful and insightful. I'm a Ph.D.student in psychology writing on challenging topics and Louisa was able to provide me sound, constructive feedback on my writing. Some simple exercises during our session provided me tools and new ways to approach the writing in creative ways. I think Louisa has a good ability to evaluate a writer's ability, and then apply the appropriate techniques and lessons to bring the writer along. She did this for me.
Scott was my tutor for French as I want to brush up on my language skills to go again to France in the spring. He was just a superb "coach" in getting me through the complexities of French. I immensely profited from my working with Scott, and as the new year arrives, I am going to meet with him occasionally to "re-charge" my language skills.
We were lucky enough to find Lynn at the end of kindergarten year for my daughter and used her for about 8weeks maybe so far.. my daughter seriously started reading 10x better from start of sessions to end!! we only stopped Bc we were away and no schedule or crazy schedule summer and will use lynn again. She has a great way with kids very professional, great w kids and excellent value! We even adapted lessons to fit a young child’s attention span better! Can’t wait to use her again to brush up for 1st grade so she can get ahead start on reading again!
Very personable and understanding of my toddler. Provided age appropriate learning tools for his lessons.
Monica has been teaching my 5 year old for the past few weeks. She uses a lot of encouraging words, which is what many kids at 4-5-6 years old need. She tunes her pace of teaching based on the kid's pace. She slows down and repeats as many times when my 5 year old gets stuck at any note. She focuses on making sure the child understands the fundamentals. She uses appropriate lesson material and gives interesting take away practice material. Unlike other piano teachers I have encountered, she is well prepared with tailored instruction material for the child. She is punctual, available and flexible. I can go on and on about her. I am very happy that I found the right piano teacher for my child's temperament.
Patricia is amazing. She helped Aniruddh rampup quickly on English and helped him get better grades. We moved from India when Aniruddh was 7. English was not his primary language, that made him struggle at school. Patricia came to the rescue and helped Aniruddh gradually pick the language, both written and spoken. Patricia has tremendous experience working with all kinds of children, and she adapts her curriculum according to each Student. In teaching experience helps. In addition to a great teacher, she is also a wonderful person and awesome baker. She is very punctual, polite and helpful. I learned a few baking tips from her on the side when she was teaching. My kids still miss Patricia. Thanks for ask the help.
Laura taught me English for several weeks. I received excellent corrections on pronounciation and grammar. The fun about learning at Laura's has been one-to-one Skype sessions, direct feedback, socially oriented outline of topics, flexible approach. I chose for personal lessons and learning in a group would do the job as well!
There is no pressure, my husband and i were enjoying lessons with Mary!
Brian is an amazing tutor who helps and inspires you!! It's been almost 1 year since I started lessons with him. I'm always excited and looking forward to our lessons. He is energetic, enthusiastic. Most of all, he is a professional tutor so that he knows what parts of my English needed help as well as we set the goal for my advancement. Every lesson we are working for the goal. I am so glad that I found him as a tutor. Plus he makes it fun!!!
Jane Yu has been teaching my daughter for 5 months. She is a great teacher despite her young age. As a Mandarin teacher from Taiwan, Jane shows different enthusiasm from Chinese teachers. Also, she does well on leading my child to know those Chinese characters, which are super complex, in a patient way. Jane's teaching attitude is awesome and the class content is inspiring. My little girl enjoys her Mandarin lessons. She is now even trying to chat with her Chinese classmates at school, of course, in Chinese.
My first lesson was very good. Gena and I got acquainted with each other and began studying Spanish. Gena is very nice and I'm sure, from what I've seen, that she'll be a good teacher. I'm really looking forward to learning Spanish from her.
I took Spanish lessons with Sarah over the summer, and it was excellent. She helped me set up a plan of what I wanted to learn, when I wanted to learn, and how I wanted to learn. She recommended a mix of Latino music and other Spanish artists, in addition to preparing an assortment of worksheets and packets for me to complete and learn from. When we met (weekly or whenever worked, for whatever amount of time we had decided on the previous week), she would go over the competed worksheets with me, and help me improve upon anything I had missed or wanted to know more about. We met at a public library near her house for a few weeks, but moved to her home for a quieter location for conversational Spanish. She went above and beyond the usual 'worksheets and bookwork', by suggesting music and other things that greatly improved my learning experience, giving me more motivation to learn the language and excel in my studies. She was always prompt and arrived with all of her materials. I am continuing to study Spanish in school and plan on continuing lessons with her possibly next summer, or whenever I feel I need help from an outside source to learn the language to the best of my abilities.
Raymond is a great teacher and linguist. He's very kind and patient, and very friendly too. His teaching method is dynamic and interesting, unlike other teachers I had before. His multi-language skills are very helpful and effective.
About a year ago I needed help to better my Spanish. Abyl was recommended to me by a coworker. I was very satisfied with her service. After recurring to her I improved in my writing and reading I obtained a better and more open vocabulary
