Super nice, informative, and easy to understand. Really excited to continue lessons!
Alison
Shelley is fantastic. She made me feel at ease right away, even though I have no prior singing experience and I was incredibly nervous. As early as my second lesson, I could already hear a difference in my voice when I listened back to the recording of our session! She really knows what she's doing and it shows. I highly recommend Shelley. In addition to being a great music teacher - which she is - she's also so pleasant to work with! She's fast to respond, very accommodating with her schedule, friendly and easygoing, and professional. I started out thinking I'd just take a few weeks' worth of lessons to get out of my comfort zone. Over a year later, I'm still here, and looking forward to every week.

Ms. Shelley is very dedicated to every one of her students. It is a pleasure working with her!

Alyssa is a great Russian teacher. I needed to learn Russian for my business travel and advertisements, so I took online lessons with Alyssa. I had only 3 months time to learn the basic language and Alyssa did magic - I was able to communicate with my business partners in Russian, and most importantly my understanding of Russian conversations improved tremendously. If you want to learn Russian I recommend to study it with Alyssa.
Christian
Alyssa is truly the best instructor ever. She helped me to get clear understanding of Russian grammar, that I had a difficult time with. She can explain why things work certain way, so I am as an adult can understand what I'm saying. Russian is a difficult language to learn, but thanks to Alyssa I managed to learn it on a relatively decent level. I needed it for my work. I recommend to study Russian with Alyssa.
Joe Ch.
I was learning to speak Russian with Alyssa for about 2,5 years. I wanted talk to my Russian girlfriend in her language. Alyssa is a wonderful teacher, very talented, patient and fun. She taught me how to speak and write in Russian so now I have a better relationship with my girlfriend. Highly recommended tutor.
