She is very knowledgable and sweet person! Great Charisma! She really puts herself into the students shoes. Best thing is that she tells us what to look for when practicing so we know if you are doing it correct! Also she video records our class and sends it to us which definitely helps!

Eulis is simply an amazing vocal coach. He not only identifies any corrections in your voice he actually clearly explains why your voice is behaving a certain way and has many solutions to correct the issue. He is a very patient and personable instructor that makes you feel comfortable, which is especially important if you are self concious about your voice like I am. Definitely saw major improvements while working with Eulis and I'm looking forward to continuing my lessons with him.

I have been teaching English for eight years. I am TEFL certified and a native English speaker. I tailor the curriculum to the student with their own goals in learning English. Each person has their own needs and learning style so I find this works best. I also have lived abroad in France and Switzerland. Je parle francais. Yo hablo espanol.

When you come to me for tutoring, for me, it becomes all about 'YOU". I identify the reason for you seeking this additional help. What is your need, what is urgent for you. Also, I use a self created diagnostic test to identify your current level in the given need based area. Once we have the over all picture of where you are, together we create .'where you want to be' i.e. our goal. Together, we then set to work on achieving the goal in as short a time as possible
