The classics and emergent literature of the North American continent and American expatriates writing in different countries represent an indispensable conduit and upgrade to any of the subjects from the current teacher’s profile. This literature is exemplary for its offbeat, innovative writers, as the Beats, and global avant-gardists as the New York School of poetry. Nevertheless, students will find the gamut of moral, social, and existential themes that distinguish any classic literary cultural expression. Students can use recommended literary readings to deepen and broaden the quality of learning for such current topics, as accent training, writing skills, ESL, and TOEFL/IELTS. Vocabulary lists can be extracted and developed from the literature for attainment of higher test scores and to further minimize/moderate accent-related speech concerns. Emotional expressions and cultural insights intensify the immersion students require to adequately reflect common English parlance. ...

I am not sure how I did. The process of using voice is ok but it seems like using this process may take some time to get use to. I still have not received the review information and it's difficult to practice pronouncing the words. Babbel seems to work better with the practice audios etc

Mr. G goes over and above to help me pursue my interests. He helped me sing through a difficult time while my voice was changing. He supports me at performances and never fails to make me laugh. Working with him has been a fantastic experience and I feel that I have grown so much.

Please disregard my earlier review. I was in Mama Bear mode and after having discussed the matter with Aubrey, I retract my statements. The only suggestion I might make is that she check in with the students about how they felt about their class today? I know time is limited and this would be easy to do in a perfect world. I truly appreciate the way she reached out to me and my child to explain the misunderstanding after the fact.
Hunter
You kept my child muted almost through the whole class, even while he was singing and you paid little to no attention to him at all. He was excited to learn dynamics as a singer and you CRUSHED him. I used to teach private violin and I would never have acted so unprofessionally. You practically made him cry. This hurt us both.

Aubrey is an absolute gem — kind, professional, intelligent, funny, focused, and fiercely dedicated to her craft. Highly recommend!!

I really enjoyed lessons with Emilie! She is well organized and has a clear lesson plan for each session, with follow up homework and exercises. I learned so much about technique and the "how to" of drawing. Everything she put together was appropriate for my level and included exercises that challenged me to improve. I could tell Emilie is well trained and skilled at drawing. She is also very nice and I felt relaxed and comfortable with her. Her studio is warm and inviting. Overall it was a great experience and I am looking forward to taking some additional lessons with Emilie!
Ava C.
So happy to have found Emilie! I work for a family with a four year old child who is extremely engaged in art and we wanted to find private lessons for her. Emilie has been extremely accommodating and very intentional in making sure we were ready for our first lesson. Will be scheduling more lessons and look forward to her being apart of my charges explorative learning!

"Daniel was an incredible tutor for Calculus Part 1, for a college course. I received his help a little late in the game but he did not shy away from the challenge. He gave me advice, showed me how to do problems the proper way and even gave me tips on some shortcuts. I would highly recommend him as a math tutor because he is easy to understand, easy to talk to and makes you feel more knowledgeable."

"I'd like to write a quick testimonial about the tutor I found here on Takelessons. Joshua has worked with my 1st grade brother for about 8 weeks and he has made impressive progress in both his reading and math skills. He has also helped discover my brothers learning condition, dyslexia, but it seems like Joshua has had no problem with that. My brother has enjoyed working with him and is demonstrating new learning, this delights me. Joshua has also developed a fun relationship with my other brothers too. I could not more strongly recommend Joshua to tutor any student."

"I'm happy to say I found Colin for help with my calculus 1 class. I was doing okay from the beginning, but I felt like I was lacking the depth of understanding of some core algebra concepts and wanted to get solid on them before the class got more challenging (integration), as I was striving for an A in the class. Colin was a wizard at honing in on my weak points and he did an excellent job of really breaking things down and honestly, presenting concepts in more tangible ways than did any of my algebra teachers. I used the principles I learned from my sessions with Colin to get me through some challenging exam problems, and I'm proud to say that I ended up with a 97% in the class overall!"
