Michelle is so patient and kind. She gives me help with my accent and the way I pronounce the words so that I sound more like a native speaker. I love her. She is so much fun. I'd recommend her to anybody.

Michelle is awesome!!! She is so sweet and a very good and encouraging instructor. She inspires me to be a better teacher. She helped me with where I was weak and gave me homework. I will definitely be working with her for EVERYTHING that I want to learn.

From the beginning, Micah proved to be exceptional! She was the only teacher who took the time to answer my long list of questions. She was clear and honest. Classes are planned according to your specific needs. She makes you want to learn more, motivates you and guides you in the best possible way. She also has a lot of patience and knows how to explain the lessons properly. Her teaching techniques have been very useful to improve my English pronunciation and I enjoy doing homework (cause it's fun and doesn't seem like homework at all). I highly highly recommend her!

If you're looking for the perfect English teacher online, Micah is your girl!

I really enjoyed my lesson with Michelle. She is a great tutor with her special skill. The only reason I did not give her a 5 starts at this time is because I want to finish more sessions to truly give her a 5 star from bottom of my heart. I would love to continue my journey with her and I am faithful I will improve quickly with her help.
