I'm sorry, I cannot handle this Instructor for my children. She wasn't me but she's not quite the people person I expected. Her personality is not a good match for a high school tutor. Unfortunately her English is not good enough. Her accent is entirely too strong. Also she does not know enough Geometry to help my kids.

"Three months ago, I could not tell you what I'm about to tell you in Spanish. Mi maestra, Señora Nery es un maestro que tiene gran atención al detalle y se asegura de que deletreo y pronuncio cada letra perfecta.
She is the best at this job. I have had two teachers prior to her...she is by far the best. Thanks to her, my pronunciation is very good, my comprehension is very good. I will continue my lessons with her as soon as my schedule permits."

"She was the best instructor we ever have for my kids to teach English as ESL. She taught English my kids with acting and playing. I was impressed with her dialogue delivery to my kids and her face expressions, Me and my wife personally found her approach to our kids truly remarkable and commendable. Additionally, the skill of using a computer as a teaching tool was very professional. As a teacher, she is very dedicated and devoted person. We find ourselves lucky to meet with Lauren and my children are still missing her."
