Spanish is all about practice, practice, practice. But before you can practice, clear comprehension of the material is imperative. We will work together to make sure the student grasps the material and feels confident speaking and writing Spanish.

Andrea works at the Writing Center at Grace Church School, a leading independent high school in lower Manhattan. I've taught there for the last couple years and make a point to send my students to the Writing Center (and her specifically, whenever possible) if they are struggling with any areas of their writing.

I've observed her in the Writing Center on a number of occasions, and she always does a great job navigating the difficult balance between helping students directly, and creating a path for them to work through questions on their own. She is direct, but supportive. She also is very perceptive of students' anxiety levels - many are kids who tend to stress about college and grades often - and how to change her tone, or comment with a personal anecdote, when what the student needs most is a moment to laugh or calm down.

Andrea's best skill in my opinion is teaching her tutees to adjust their priorities based on a deadline. She consults students whose papers are due in a couple of hours, and others who have a whole week left, and without being preachy gets across realistic expectations of what can be done within the timeframe.

Andrea connected with my daughter right away, encouraging her to push her writing in more creative directions. Andrea brought her bright personality to each lesson, making the writing process fun for my daughter. Together, they worked on her college admissions essay and a few English class assignments. Andrea helped my daughter overcome her writer's block and anxiety about writing to craft more personal, thoughtful essays. We are very pleased with the results!
Josh
My daughter had a great experience with Andrea as a writing tutor. Andrea helped her with her college admissions essay and she is attending Vassar in the fall - very pleased. Andrea is very patient, punctual, and has helped Claire gain confidence in her writing.

Alfiya is an absolutely amazing teacher!!! Though I have had only a handful of lessons, I have learned so much about the Russian language. Her dedication and high expectation of me as a student encourages me to apply myself 110% and, as a result, my comprehension and ability to speak Russian grows with each lesson. So excited to have Alfiya as my teacher!!!

I consider myself a challenged beginner in Hebrew and Orion is patient and kind, and manages to add humor to my learning. She is willing to break down the nuances of the language in the easiest of terms, when needed. I can tell she would be a phenomenal instructor for more advanced learners as well. I look forward to my continued lessons!

"I’m so glad Hunter is still working through this! Writing this as we are all in quarantine / lockdown re: covid-19. This really has been the perfect time to do online lessons. Hunter is so positive and cheerful and, in addition to being an excellent teacher, she really brightens my mood! It’s so nice to have the break during the day or week just to see someone else’s face AND we’re actually getting a LOT done. She is so meticulous and organized in her lesson planning and always gives me the perfect practice work / homework for between lessons. I’m originally from Russia and have been here 10 years but still have a heavy accent so time to get rid of it - and we’re making progress already! It’s only been a couple of months, and people can already hear a difference. So glad I decided to do this and so glad I found Hunter. You really should give her a try!"
