I teach my kids how to read and annotate texts. It is important to look up all unfamiliar words in the dictionary. And make outlines of chapters read.

Tamar is a wonderful, dynamic and enthousiastic teacher and my 12 year old daughter had a great time with her.
Tamar knows when to slow down if her student is tired, but is also demanding so as to be sure that progress are made.
It was a pleasure seeing how fast my daughter improved her English and we both appreciated meeting Tamar, who is a great person :)

TAMAR IS A GEM

Tamar is a gem!

I have been working with her for the past year and she has helped me completely transform my academic situation.

I am a freshman in high school who struggles with ADHD. Tamar's patience and diligence is completely unsurpassed. She goes above and beyond to ensure that I am not only doing my work, but she breaks down the material for me in such a way that it is easy to understand. Tamar puts in hours of her own time to create tests and study guides which has helped give me the extra advantage i need. I recommend her to anyone. She is by far one of the best tutors and individuals ever.

Tamar is quite simply a gem. She has been working with me for the past year and has helped me completely transform my academic situation. I am a freshman in high school who struggles with ADHD. Tamar's patience and diligence in working with me is completely unsurpassed. She goes above and beyond to ensure that I not only do my work, but she breaks down the material in such a way that it caters to my unique learning needs. Tamar puts in hours of her own time, beyond active lesson time, to create tests and study guides which help give me the extra advantage I need. Tamar has been an absolute joy to work with and I would strongly recommend her to anyone. She is by far one of the most impressive tutors and individuals I have ever had the pleasure of working with.

Being able to listen to different rates of speech, write with ease, speak with confidence, and read the nuances of the English language are all highlighted in these lessons.

I have been taking private lessons with Anna weekly for one year. She has taught me Russian from a complete beginner level. I've taken a number of language classes in the past (for other languages) and it's clear that Anna is an outstanding teacher. She is clear and gives excellent explanations, and is well-prepared for each class. She's also able to give requested ad-hoc lessons whenever I have specific questions, even without preparation. I would highly recommend Anna as a Russian teacher, whether you're in-person or online. I do both types of lessons with her and she is highly effective through both mediums. Last but not least, she's a great pleasure to be around, as a person!

Gabrielle A.

Spring Valley, NY

Dear English Students,

A native French speaker, I have been tutoring students of all levels since 2008. I was the main French and German Instructor, as well as a private English tutor, at the San Jose Learning Center in the Silicon Valley before moving to New York.

The core of my lessons are drawn from a language book, which allows the student to work at his or her own pace during the week.

The lessons themselves are then spent reviewing previous work, as well as introducing new material in a variety of ways, all the while engaging in various forms of dialogues depending on your level.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

I hope to hear from you, meet you, and work with you!

Sincerely,
Gabrielle

Gabrielle focuses on the individualized needs of each student and creates lessons and conversations to help the learner succeed. Her unique style of synchronous visual and auditory prompts through the online medium is extremely effective in the retention and understanding of concepts. I highly recommend her as an instructor.

I have never taken classes online before, but if this is how Robert teaches I would not hesitate to refer him to anyone that is interested in taking classes online. He was thorough, patient and very informative. More importantly he did not make me feel foolish in what I did not know. Thanks Robert
