First class, very excited and a wonderful teacher !

Carla is like a friend you’ve had forever. She gears lessons to your level and interests and is patient with my senior brain that needs a lot of repetition. She is also happy to give me time to write down notes for later. Her constructive criticism about hand position, etc. is really helpful, and I know she is paying attention to me!
Allyn L.
I am really excited about my ASL lessons with Carla. She was very congenial and easy to warm up to immediately. She is patient and gave me time to take notes which help me review later. Carl geared the lesson toward my level of experience and was happy for me to ask questions anytime. She gave me good pointers on my hand position. I think she will be an exceptional tutor!

"When I came to the US my English language level was not great. I had studied in school in Turkey, but my pronunciation was difficult to understand and the grammar was impossible for me. I have been taking classes for about 1.5 years now with Micah and another instructor that works for her, and I have improved a lot. I have even been giving presentations at my job now. I am an engineer.

I was not expecting to improve my level like that in 1.5 years. Learn English or Spanish LLC has talented teachers. Now I am planning to take the TOEFL in 6 months, and I will prepare for it with them. After that, my goal is a Masters degree. I highly recommend classes with them.

They are extremely effective teachers."

"Nick is very patient and knowledgeable. He has helped me reconstruct many paragraphs in essays/college papers that I had to write. He has a keen eye and sees all the little mistakes and ways things could be rewritten to convey point. He has looked over several of my papers and edited them, and also helped me to learn to write better- not just fixing the problem for me. I have watched my grades go from C's to A's over time, he's great !"

"Although Karen was my High School Dance Teacher, she also helped me after school with my other classes, especially those related to any Writing assignments. She first started tutoring me when I was a Sophomore. I confided in her that I was having a hard time in my English class, and so she offered to stay after school and help me with my assignments. Through her tutoring me my grades improved in English class. She continued to help me for the next few years even through my Senior English class. Karen is an incredibly caring teacher/tutor that cares about other people’s learning. She is patient. She encouraged me a lot. Even when she told me the areas where I needed improvement, she was supportive and nice. Now that I am going to start Pima College pretty soon, I’m definitely going to hire her again as my English tutor to help me do well in college English classes. I would highly recommend Karen as a Writing/Reading Tutor for anyone who needs to improve in these areas."
