Mike P.
I am a 62 year old person who had previously studied Spanish using Rosetta Stone and Duolingo. I started taking lessons with Georgina several years ago to provide a regular opportunity to engage in Spanish conversation. Our lessons have been free-flowing and she introduced me to a number of books written in Spanish which were not only helpful in further developing my knowledge of Spanish but were culturally enlightening as well. Georgina is easy to engage, a delightful person to know and an excellent instructor.

My lessons are customized to address the specific needs and goals of the student. My first lesson starts with an combined informal ( introduction and conversation) and more formal assessment (pronunciation, grammar, writing, etc.). I also use methods to meet the specific learning style of the student and rely on a variety of sources. For example, I often start with a pronunciation drill focused on a specific area and/or address a particular grammar area before having the student give a talk, engage in a role play, or work on piece of writing. Moreover, I work with students on specific communication goals (conversational English; formal presentations; chairing meetings; resumes and cover letters; interviews; reports and all other types of writing-- including essays, research papers, and legal writing; and test preparation, such as TOEFL and IELTS.

Marcelle is an expert at English language. I have been taking English writing lessons from her. She is a very good English expert, very focused and has been very sharp in identifying my weak points. She gave me a different strategy on how to overcome my weakness, and I am surprised with the result. I would recommend anyone who wants to improve their English. She is also a very good human being.
Hamda
I like the way how she organized the classes. Marcelle knows which part of my English language needs to improve. She is very flexible in the timing of the classes. I strongly recommended her for whoever wants to improve and refresh their English language. Honestly, she's the best.

Molly S.
First, I AM NOT LEARNING ENGLISH. I have tried to explain this to Take Lessons, but they schedule it as ESL. I am from New York, learning Creole to prepare for my boys from Haiti arriving this summer. Alain is amazing. He is encouraging, flexible in design and instruction for each session, makes sure you have correct pronunciation and understand why one construction is better than another or why another word is best due to the most common dialects in Haiti. This was especially important as I knew some other words that were not as common but just particular to the small region my previous tutor was from. I strongly recommend Alain for your needs as an adult and also any children or teens.

"Mr Nguyen's course teaching introductory Tieng Viet to non native speakers is a very good course which demands close attention from students, but is a well built and practiced class to show people how to learn the language. It is far more useful than any RosettaStone course or online class, as Thay Giao Chau takes very good care to show how the language is structured, and with practice how you recognize the patterns in speech. Are you asking a question? Are you asking a 'leading question'? Do you want to know what a person is doing? All of these points are discussed. Even when I was not feeling as healthy as I could have been, Mr Nguyen's class is structured to be very participatory - don't think you will show up and not have to answer questions - and it is for this reason I believe the retention of the material is improved. I would commend anyone who is a non native Vietnamese speaker to work with him to learn how to learn the language. -Best, Anh Marc S."
