I tried to cancel my appointment for my daughter right before her lesson. It's my fault so technically Layla had every right to charge me even though she didn't meet with my daughter. We had a family issue and I didn't give her 24 hours notice. Most other instructors on this site would never have charged me. I tried to reach out to her afterwards and reschedule and she never got back to me. Therefore she made her one time hourly fee but I couldn't recommend her because customer service is important to me. So maybe she's a great instructor just don't cancel your appointment right before your scheduled time.

Layla has truly been a helpful tutor. I tend to struggle in classroom environments where the teacher can't always attend to my needs with so many students, so I decided to get a tutor. Layla has experience in teaching and so I decided to give her a try. Her methods are effective and have helped my improve already in such little time. She is not only helpful during our tutoring sessions, but also maintains dialogue in-between sessions, which is also very helpful. I would strongly recommend her as a tutor. She's amazing!

Layla is a wonderful tutor. Her teaching methods are very helpful and have helped me improve my English. It's sometimes hard for me to learn in a classroom environment, so her one-on-one teaching methods are very productive. I definitely recommend her as a tutor!

Layla has been great to work with. Very enthusiastic and encouraging. Her instructions were clear and she was very patient to work with me until I understood how to do everything. She explained the why of things so I would know the reason for everything which is very important to me. She was very accommodating when my schedule required a temporary change in our lesson schedule. It is obvious that she loves belly dancing and is very good at it. She customizes the style and kind of music to suit the student's taste. I Highly recommend her as a teacher.
