Steve is the best English teacher I've met. He works patiently and helps me to improve my English in my way. Studying with Steve is enjoyable. I will take lessons with him constantly.

Steve is a great tutor, and coach. He took the time to analyze where I needed to improve and worked patiently with me on those areas. Each session is a joy, and he reinforces improvement with positive affirmation. He has a great voice and a great teaching style. If he offers other lessons that I can use, I'll take them. He is the best!

Steve chooses very interesting topics to talk about and it does not feel like static learning. It feels like learning not only the language, but also getting even more knowledge about other topics. Highly recommend without any hesitation.
