Keith is an amazing teacher. My 7 year old son likes him very much. Before the lessons I worried our boy couldn’t build his interest in playing piano, just lose his enthusiasm after a while as the 7 years old always did. But Keith make me totally worry free, my son likes him very much, and he really knows how to build the kid’s interests and confidence while learning. Now my son enjoyed himself very much with Keith in their piano time. We are so lucky to find Keith.

We had four in-home lessons with Keith and he never once arrived on time. And not like 5 minutes late because of bad traffic or something. Once he was 40 minutes late, and another time he was 45 minutes late. For an hour lesson. At first I though there was some confusion because the time on take lessons was slightly different than the time we agreed to (he asked if we could start earlier than the time slot that was listed, and I agreed) but after speaking with him about it, we were both on the same page as to what time the lesson *should* begin, he just never arrived on time. He seems to be very overbooked and busy and does not respect his clients’ time. He told me that the disparity of arriving on time or a half hour late is “superfluous,” so if you hire him, be prepared to have a wide window of when he could show up. My kids liked him as a teacher, which is why I kept giving him chances and trying to work out scheduling issues (I offered to move our lessons to a different time, but he insisted the time we were at was fine) but in the end, things could not be resolved.

We absolutely love Candida. She seems to be able to connect to my 8 years old which I constantly have to push to practice, so and I cannot ask for more honestly. I'm just happy he's so excited to go to the class. Worth every $ and trust me I just moved in NYC and the lessons are double the price than in NJ.

International-level English Fluency - - What if I told you there is one achievement every non-native English professional has to master to be able to succeed fully? That, if you have not achieved this, regardless of how well your career is going, you will not be as successful as you could be?
This extremely important achievement? Being able to speak English confidently at international levels.
As an English fluency coach who has a lot of experience working with foreign professionals, my goal is to help you improve your fluency through regular conversations and give you confidence in your ability. I know that the best way to do this is for you to have regular conversations with a native English speaker.

How does this work? I make gentle corrections in pronunciation and usage as we chat. As you become absorbed in our interesting conversations, you will suddenly realize that you are THINKING in English. That's when you gain confidence.

Who am I? I am a US native professional, with ...
