She really took the time to understand what I need and worked with me to help me with my breathing and technique. I am definitely taking more lessons from Benedetta.

I've had 5 lessons with Benedetta and she is fantastic. She focuses on technique which is so important for singers to master. I made progress after my first lesson and each week she teaches me something new. I highly recommend her and if you want results, she'll help you get to the level you want to achieve!

Charlene is an excellent teacher. Her lesson demonstrated that she is an experienced instructor with a passion for teaching. She was fully engaged and encouraged me to go forward with my Portuguese language learning. I enjoyed our first lesson which included assessment, grammar and extremely helpful pronunciation cues. I recommend her highly.

I enjoy our lessons. For me, having a native French speaker is very important. It allows me to hear the language how it is “naturally” spoken. This helps when you visit a Francophone country or come across a native when it comes to listening & comprehension. It allows you to better understand the language when spoken. Also, it helps you to learn the proper pronunciation, how different conversations flow and so much more. I definitely appreciate Jean-Luc! He is very patient and understanding. If I am curious about anything in regards to our lessons or the French culture he is more than willing to stop and explain.

Three Japanese lessons provided, each tailored to maximize student's abilities according to their goals. I recommend the 45-minute lesson to beginner and intermediate level students.

◆45-minute lesson: All in one comprehensive lesson with 15-20 minutes speaking plus listening and reading, new vocabulary and grammar.

◆30-minute lesson: Speaking practice plus one activity from listening, reading, or grammar, idioms your choice.

What makes ESL lessons with me unique are my ability to interact with students of all age ranges from kindergarten to adult. I have four years of experience teaching under my belt with a wide range of students from all walks of life whether it's kindergartners, primary school students, college students, or even adult professionals. I have taught clients all around the world not just my three-and-a-half years classroom experience in Southeast Asia but also online to people in places like China, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Brazil, Pakistan, or wherever.

I am all too familiar with TPR regarding smaller students and grammar and pronunciation corrections with older students. I have a witty sense of humor and lots of energy. I always try to make the class as fun and entertaining as possible. I have a long list of games to play with the students as well. I have learned over time that half the job entails one's ability to entertain. The more entertained the students are, the more engaged they ...

I am a fellow colleague of Dustin's. Dustin is an interesting person who is able to hold interesting conversations about all kind of topics. He is also a reliable individual who is dedicated to his job. He is also a great team player and has covered a class for me when in the unfortunate event, I had injured my foot from a bike accident and was not able to make class. Dustin kindly agreed to make the journey and take the lesson at the last minute.

"First lesson was good, although we had some technical difficulties using Skype -- probably my fault not Valentina's -- and ended up speaking by phone. Once we get that worked out, I expect to improve my conversational Italian, with special emphasis on conjugating verbs. So wonderful to speak with someone whose first language is Italian."
