Samir is an excellent language tutor! He can craft lessons to suit any needs whether you are a beginner or advanced! He also provides relevant supplementary materials so that you can practice and apply the theories learned in your lesson. I found that this consistent practice with actual speaking was a big factor to achieving better spoken fluency with my language of study, arabic. I highly recommend Samir as you will not be disappointed.

For homework, Samir sent me several videos of Moroccan dialect. We discussed the vocabulary during the lesson; as always, he provided many examples to demonstrate the broader usage of the words. He is a skilled teacher. Highly recommended.

Jackie has been able to assess my needs quite well and tailor a program specific to my goals to learn Spanish. My language understanding has increased due to the formal classes with Jackie. I intend to keep her as my tutor even when I move to another country. She is knowledgeable, experienced and very patient as a tutor. Her sense of humour is a welcome addition at times when I am struggling. The online lessons are very good for my timetable and quite convenient. I would recommend Jackie as a Spanish language tutor.

Excellent first lesson. Valentina was very patient but persistent in staying in Russian as much as feasible. I knew a little bit from decades ago and she helped me find the way forward again without embarrassment. I look forward to the next lessons.
