A talented musician and caring instructor. My son is on the Autism Spectrum and really related to Francis. Francis encourages his students to lead the way with what they desire out of their lessons. So happy we found him!

my first lesson with Francis was excellent. we talked about goals for a few minutes, then got to work. It was a good vocal warmup and workout. I learned vocal exercises, as well as practicing on a song I wanted to work on. Francis is obviously a pro.

Jennifer is an awesome piano teacher! She works great with children! My 6 year old is very engaged, interested and ready to learn! She leaves each week saying how she cannot wait for her next lesson and she practices a lot at home. I believe this comes from Jennifer's excellence in teaching! I would highly recommend her!

Instructor Mingla is awesome. She has been working with my 9 years old daughter for quite some time now. Ever since my daughter started her online math tutoring sessions with Mingla she is doing excellent in math. She was a B+ average student in math and now she is an A average. Mingla has a lot of patience to deal with kids and she makes sure they understand what she is teaching them. I can openly express this because I see how she is with my daughter. After each of her math sessions, my daughter always let me know how much she learned and how she is so happy she is able to understand math problems easier the way Mingla explains them. I truly recommend instructor Mingla for your children's needs in Math. She is a very dedicated individual who works very well with kids! Highly recommend her!

Excellent teacher! Karl broke down elements of the game into digestible parts, explained logic and tactics very clearly. Very helpful doing simulation together, so not talking at me as I think some instructors do. Engaging and patient...definitely recommend!
