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.

Alexandra is an excellent instructor. She has a great friendly style with people of all ages and actors of all experience levels. Alexandra is very detailed oriented. This is beneficial to actors in that she makes sure you all are breaking down the script and asking all the right questions regarding the text, your role, and your scene partner's role. I feel you will learn a lot with Alexandra, as I did, and enjoy your time with her.

My emphasis is on a dialogue-driven and media-enriched practice toward the language. This establishes a common and confident ground for inspirational English learning. The goal is to address critical, daunting issues that often derail students’ track toward their essay, script writing, accent issue, conversation or any related English challenge.
For example, I use a customized curriculum addressing frequently requested themes, as creativity, personal style, grammar, punctuation, diction, syntax, and idea-generation.
Furthermore, students have favorably reviewed my unique usage of audio monitoring software during online lessons to help approximate accent issues between different languages. Students obtain a repository of audio files during each lesson to be used for actively evaluating individual expression while waiting in line, traffic, and during breaks. My multimedia approach that coordinates sound, visual, and online resource, as Merriam-Webster and Google Earth, connects to ...

Erol has a very systematic approach in teaching accent reduction. Since taking lessons with Erol, I've started to become more aware of my speech and noticed an improvement in my pronunciation. Highly recommended!
June
Erol utilizes an audio software to analyze and determine what needs to be worked. This eliminates a lot of human hearing errors and gives me a visual on what’s correct vs incorrect. Highly recommended for you to try his method out.
Rhonda
I enjoyed the lesson very much, he started out teaching things that made sense so that I would learn faster than the lessons I have previously taken and not done well with.
I'm looking forward to the next lesson and am practicing what we went over in class.
