I am a published writer. I have two degrees in which I have accumulated incredible English writing and grammar skills and knowledge! I produce literature content and poetry style writing. I have published a few writing pieces. I enjoy writing, and putting together works that are real. As 5 English classes during my High School career, and three in college, including speech and writing articles, I have become familiar with grammar practices and formal compilation. With my art, I can also assist in bringing out the creativity and a student's individuality for writing!

Solange is amazing as an instructor. As a native speaker she understands text book French as well as slang. She provides several options for ways to express a thought. She is easy to talk to and time passes so quickly. Definitely the best French teach I have had and I have had many.

I love to teach accent reduction! My students are amazed once they learn how Americans really speak and that they can learn to speak like that too. From the first few classes, you will find that your attention is immediately drawn to how you are pronouncing not only individual words but complete sentences, and how your ear will quickly become attuned to the reductions and links that Americans make. Our lessons will be based on the book Mastering the American Accent by Lisa Mojsin, with other books to supplement as needed. The first lesson will Include a review of your diagnostic test so that we can see what areas you need to focus on first. It's really fun and exciting to see how quickly your accent develops into one that people can understand better and that you feel more confident using. Let's do this!

Jeanne is an awesome instructor. In a little over a month, I have become more aware of my mispronunciation and learned several nuances with consonants (such as t and the dark l) and vowel articulation.

Jeanne has been working with me to reduce my accent and improve my articulation. She is a lot of fun to work with, very approachable, resourceful and a true expert in working with ESL clients. I’m getting more than I expected and highly recommend her lessons.

Mary is a wonderful teacher. She is patient and bright and tailors her lessons to fit the needs and desires of the learner. I enjoy our sessions very much and have learned more Spanish working with her than in all of my past attempts to learn languages combined (from years of courses to Rosetta Stone). In ten hours I feel I have a good foundation for understanding the language and can form sentences and engage in conversations on my own. I look forward to continuing with her and learning even more!

I have meet many educators in my life time but non have ever stood outas much Mary, she has anazing energy and great patience when teaching others and she knows how to be relatable to her students. Great experience!

"I love working with Isabela, she is so personable. I felt like I was talking to someone I knew for a long time. I wasn't sure what to expect, as far as online classes. Isabela, made this session very relaxed. Which is perfect, because on the first day of any class, I am always anxious. No matter your age I believe you would be able to mesh very well with Isabela."
