Even it was my first lesson I can feel the progress and I am confident about achieving my goal. Thanks Ian!!
Xiaoqi
Ian is fantastic teacher. He was so patient with my toddler daughter. And when she became fuzzy during the class, Ian could be so creative to always come out with a way to calm her down and redirect her attention to other musical things. I would love him to be my daughter’s music teacher for as long as possible if I did not have to move.

Ian is very knowledgeable and is great in explaining theory and great in demonstrating so you can understand.

Are you struggling to learn Spanish? My students quickly raise their grades and test scores, feel confident speaking Spanish and most importantly begin to speak in full sentences from their very first lesson with me! I help students break down the language into its essential elements, so learning becomes an enjoyable breeze!
I don't rely on memorization, rather we focus on understanding how the grammar, especially the verbs, work in Spanish. You will be amazed at the results you begin to achieve from your very first lesson! You will gain confidence in your ability to speak in the classroom and beyond!

Thanks for the great lesson
Nathan
Finding a good French teacher is hard. I’ve had many over the years. Olivier is completely bilingual and brings a breadth of knowledge, patience, engagement, and personalization to his teaching that makes him, hands down, the best tutor I’ve ever had. Don’t be intimidated by his qualifications—he is extremely personable. If you take learning French seriously, you want Olivier.
Priscilla
Olivier has been tutoring me for the past year. He is always very clear in his explanations and very patient. Olivier is also knowledgeable about the French culture. I walk out of every lesson with more confidence about my French and the progress that I'm making. Definitely a 5-star tutor. I highly recommend Olivier as a French tutor.

"Isabelle is an incredible French instructor. If you work with her, you will learn French, from the first lesson, to the last!

I've been a student of Isabelle's for over 2 years now and I can honestly say that working with Isabelle is one of the best decisions I've made in my life!

Isabelle maximizes lessons of any size by:
-skillfully assessing where clients are in their journey
-identifying near and long-term goals
-masterfully coaching clients to maximize French language acquisition across both oral and reading comprehension and oral and written expression

With Isabelle's help, I obtained an A2 ranking on my latest TCF exam earlier this year! Practically speaking, I've been able to comfortably travel to Paris, France and Montreal, Canada with ease and ace a job interview with a Native Francophone speaker in a hybrid conversation in English and French!

You will be lucky to work with Isabelle on your language goals. I recommend that you work with Isabelle, and insist that you start today!"

"I was signed up for a series of half-hour lessons, but Pantelis worked to get as much good work into that time as possible. He zeroed in on my weak spots and we worked on those, both together via Google hangouts and by myself using online classrooms that I was totally unaware of before taking these lessons. I had a tiny background in the language when we started, but he made the most of it. It was a great experience. During the time we were working together, he left town and was actually talking to me from his home in Greece, although it took me a while to figure that out. He was able to report on what was happening on the island while he was there. I recommend Pantelis as a teacher without reservation."

"This year I decided to make a change in the way my daughter practices the Polish language...traditionally she had been going to a “Polish school”. She was in a class size of 20kids and I was concerned she was not getting the verbal practice that she needed. So this school year I decided to think outside the box and hire Joanna. We just finished our first lesson and I know we made the right choice!
My daughter is actually excited to learn polish outside the traditional “Polish school” classroom now. ;)
Joanna assessed her level by playing a quick game of “what do you see in this picture” making it as enjoyable as possible to assess her level.
We are both happy to have Joanna and look forward to more sessions."
