Each lesson is well balanced in terms of review and new material so I don’t feel overwhelmed. She incorporates grammar, speaking, vocabulary, listening exercises and writing as well as cultural and social etiquette tips. Highly recommend!"

"After 5 hours working on accent reduction with Erol, I decided to purchase another 15-hour package and planning to study with him in the long run. Erol develops his own syllabus, analyzing my pronunciation with software, which helps a lot in visualizing what needs to improve. All lessons are recorded and can be downloaded for later review. He is quite flexible when I requested late night sessions. He is punctual and caring."
