Great teacher! She is very patient, knowledgeable, and friendly. Suggests things based one what you want to tackle next and she can teach left handed! I’m learning a ton and really enjoying the new skill.
Laura
Erin is such a wonderful knitting teacher! I’m a beginner with few skills and she put me at ease and guided me with exactly what my first formal project will be, the exact yarn and the needles to get. So happy to have found her as my knitting teacher, I highly recommend Erin.

Marcia is an excellent tutor. This pandemic has really made things difficult for our family to keep our children on track with homeschooling. Marcia hit the ground running with our daughter who had become discouraged with all the work she had to do. Marcia was able to look briefly at the curriculum and come up with a plan to not only get our daughter back on track but motivated her to keep the momentum going. She has been a very positive light for our daughter. We truly appreciate her.
Ana
In 2013 and 2014, I took English classes with Marcia Albergo. Marcia was a very different kind of teacher. Unlike other teachers, she fostered a love for the language. She encouraged everyone in the classroom to reach their potential. Her method of teaching was also different than the other teachers I had. She used a variety of materials that not only helped us to learn English, but also encouraged our desire to learn. She covered a variety of topics and subjects that held the interest of the students in the classroom. Whether it was learning new words on each new page of a book or new expressions, I was challenged to learn the English language in a variety of ways. I believe she did a good job as a teacher because I was actually learning more than just English. I was learning things about the world that I never knew before. Thanks to her method of teaching, I have learned English well. Marcia was my favorite teacher.
Danute
I have take lessons from Marcia several years ago and highly recommend you take lessons from her as well. She helped improve my English greatly, because she is very professional teacher. Marcia always well organized and prepared. She use effective teachings methods. Gramma exercises, verbs conjugation, colloquialisms, expressions, discussions helps me become a fluent speaker.
She can connect to her students on multiple levels and give for them support. Marcia is very responsible and extremely helpful, she always answered in all my questions. Marcia is a great teacher and friend.
Thank you so much.

"I've chosen Staphanie as my teacher, because I needed someone who will really quickly help me make my English accent better. I took the fact that she is also a musician as a big advantage as I assumed she'll be able to hear all the false accentuation I make. In fact, if you want to work on your English skills, it's the best combination of skills.
It was really clever decision. Stephanie is able to explain things clearly and fast. Step by step, syllable by syllable, trains student how to speak properly. If you're ready to do your homework and want to see progress fast, Stephanie is perfect person to work with. And she is very kind, too!"

"Thank you, Jan!

We would like to thank Jan for her professionalism and her kindness. My wife and I had great English lessons with Jan for one month in LA. Jan managed to make the lessons very interesting, mixing general conversations and specific grammar rules, idioms, and vocabulary teaching. We were so happy with our experience with Jan that once back home, we decided to continue our lessons remotely via Skype, a way to benefit from Jan's great teaching experience anywhere in the world. We strongly recommend Jan."

"Hello,
When I moved from Russia to US in 2011, my English was at beginner’s level and I desperately needed to start speaking this language as soon as possible: especially for my job but also for my every day life.
I tried to take some ESL classes at local colleges and also study with a tutor but it did not work very well. Instead I became more afraid of making mistakes or saying something not correctly. I was frustrated and started to think that I am just not made for learning new languages.
I heard about Roman from my colleague who did intensive French language program designed and taught by mr. Nam. So he told me that Roman also teaches ESL. I decided to give it a try.
After three months of classes with Roman my English improved so much! From the beginning of classes I started to feel so motivated and everything was explained in really simple way. I don’t really understand how Roman was doing this but every class and even every homework was so interesting and so fun to do. I loved to hear myself speak English better and better. I started to use my english in any situation and I felt so confident.
Now, after four years living in US my English is much better but i know that the most important step in my progress was the program I did with Roman and I am very thankful for all his help."

"I hired Henry to teach English for my little daughter. The reason i have chose him was he was the only one on the list who accept half hour lessons. I wanted to see şf he is good. I was gonna rşse to one hour if i like. And his hourly rate was reasonable too. We met and he was perfect. After my daughter we have studied with him. He has provided fastest improvement on my special purpose of need. It is really not common to see this passionate teachers around. His academic approach to your need and support with newest material in the maket was excellent. I think he is ahead of others because of his major. A senior jounalist, a TV person... he helped me a lot for my journalism career too... So i definitely can call him An excellent career coach. While i was trying to be on time with my project in Los Angeles, i was the lucky one to meet him through takelessons.com. He gave me what i need only at three weeks. We together focused on my certain project's needs and after i was ready to move alone almost. He is great to teach on bussiness emails, phone conversations, expressing your basic work situation etc.
He is great on accent reduction too. While i wrote this review my concerns is he will see and will find anything to correct... But he also has taught me to be courage enough too... Thank you Henry for everything you have done. I am a freelance foreign journalist in LA. He did his best for me both as a teacher and colleague. And such a good heart... Even if you don't share same opinions on any affair he respect you and try to give his best and more than what you have paid. He is patient too."
