We've only had one session so far, but Amy really knows her content. She assessed my 8 year old son's reading/spelling/vocab skills quickly and accurately and was very kind and engaging during the session. I feel confident he'll be at the level we want him to be by the start of the school year.

It is my grasp of foreign languages that makes me an effective English teacher. For instance, learning the complex grammar of Latin and Greek gave me a thorough understanding of English grammar and the ability to relate to other people’s native languages. I have spent many hours proofreading papers for international students. They find my instruction especially informative because I not only fix mistakes but provide an explanation. When I point out the patterns of grammar, similar mistakes show up less and less, and my students feel more confident that they are writing sentences correctly.

I learned English teaching methods through my tutoring experience. Over a span of four months, I gave a Turkish visiting scholar a systematic overview of English grammar and allowed him to apply it through conversation.

Thank you for my kids first lesson. I was a little nervous at first as my kids if always had lessons in a studio. Online worked ok really well. We look forward to many more lessons with Ben.

As I have done with my community college students for the past 35 years, I put my students at ease by saying that I know they have not received adequate grammar instruction, nor have they been shown the writing process stages in high school. So what they are about to acquire is no review but a step-by-step introduction to college writing. We work through the writing stages to develop types of essays.
