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!
I have known Lynn Wilton for 25 years. She tutored me in English as a second language, and then in English as well while I was a student at Edmonds Community College (1997-1999). I have found her to be a very enthusiastic, creative, dedicated and patient tutor with excellent skills in improving my speaking, reading and writing. I received a very good GPA of 3.94 in my English course. Lynn Wilton is a excellent English tutor, and I strongly recommend her to anyone who needs help in English.
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 needed help with my English class and my tutor helped me go from a C- to an A. Very good. The best tutoring company around.
Louisa has been a great tutor for me and I very much enjoyed the time editing my application essays with her. As a non-native speaker, I did not have any communication problems with her. She is really patient and thoughtful: She would read through my writing and make sure to grasp my main arguments points before we get started to make any editings. In this way, I felt confident that my essays would convey my original points. Also, I learned a lot on how to improve my essays to become more concise, coherent and interesting to read. Besides editing the my grammer mistakes, she takes time to correct word choice, sentence structure and the whole paragraph strucure. She really helped me on getting my ideas across the board. I would recommend her to other non-native speaker students who wants to improve their writing skills in English. You would spend a good time working with her.
Scott is tutoring me in ESL and I am very happy that he teaches me. He is very professional and patient. He answers text messages and calls immediately. It makes fun to learn English with him.
I have been working with Philippe since August 2017 and have enjoyed the French lessons he's provided. He's always on time, is willing to work with you on whatever you like whether it's spelling, grammar, conversational French etc and goes above and beyond to prepare for your lessons. Lessons are equipped with worksheets and uniquely formulated activities to get you where you to go, A+!
Lisa has been a very supportive and motivating Spanish teacher for my girls. Not only she knows how to teach Spanish but also has unique skill of having fun while learning,! My daughter looks forward to Spanish class with Lisa and her grades have been significantly improving.
Piyush is absolutely wonderful and is great with kids! My son looks forward to going to him and get his English lessons. He also does his homework without any fuss. From everything I can see it is a great environment and learning center for kids!!
Laura gave me online training for non-native English speakers who want to improve their English and also become able to use advanced communication methods in English. I did 2 lessons per week during 5 weeks. Working with Laura was a very nice original and meaningful experience. Learning English this way is delighting and efficient ! I learned about myself and learnt english at same time. We also used relaxing and visualisation methods during the class, it was new to me but so great ! Sometimes online class can be terrible when Skype doesn't work well or when I could not install some tech tools. I would not say that today I'm fully self confident and high level in English but definitely this experience improved my English language skills, maybe I should have done more hours. Thank you Laura ! The experience was amazing !
Our Experience with our English Tutor, Theodore has been outstanding. Theodore tutors twice a week for us and comes each and every week prepared with a well thought out lesson to meet our specific learning needs. I would recommend Theodore for his English teaching skills for sure, just so long as its not on Tuesday or Thursday evenings between 6 and 7pm. :) Brady
Teacher Teresa was quick to understand my children's English levels and teaches them step by step. It helps the children get interested in reading English book a lot. Thank you Teresa!!!
When I first met Brian, I will admit, I was a bit nervous and wasn't sure how well his teaching methods would work for me. But after my second lesson, I realized how exceptional he is. Brian is engaging, fun as well as patient. Which are key elements for me in learning a new language. He is also good at finding ways to fine tune his lesson to help you progress. Not to mention, his rate per lesson is quite affordable. Having started with no background in Dutch, I am more confident in my ability to speak and will practice during my trip to Belgium. For these reasons and more, I would highly recommend him. Brian thank you for everything and you are awesome!
We had Bruce Winter as the English tutor for our homeschooling group for about two years. He had to teach 3 different groups every day, at kindergarten and elementary level. He was always well prepared in his attitude as well as the teaching materials. He kept a very good relationship with the students and the parents, willing to listen and communicate. Being very patient and articulative, he was able to explain ideas and concepts clearly. The children enjoyed his lessons a lot. I highly recommend him for his tutoring service!
There are some people that have a natural born insight to improving sentences and bringing a story to life. Those are the kind of editors that can make a difference. I have always felt that Kimberly Munson has this natural gift. When she reads my writing she can tell me what lacks but the best part is she always provides guidance with her critiques. I am actually taking one on one writing lessons with her and I have seen immediate improvements in my writing skills. It is rare to find an editor that will actually help you improve your writing skills in this cut throat industry you either have it or you dont. But what if you have a story exploding inside of your mind and you just need some guidance on improving your writing skills, where can you go? The tutoring lessons with Kimberly Munson are my answered prayers.
