Vania is an excellent Spanish instructor

I've taken many Spanish lessons that have ranged from various software programs to personal tutors. Vania is great. She knows how to relate with each person in order to convey concepts. She's the best I have worked with.

About Batuhan

I'm a devoted and a passionate teacher, even though I'm teaching a wide variety of subjects my focus is on music and the drum set. Lessons Lessons are generally in a relaxed setting and designed to work towards accomplishing student determined goals.

Batu has been teaching my two girls, 5 and 7 year old, chess. The lessons have been great, not only he teaches them the fundamentals, he also changes his teaching methods to match their needs. He relates them and makes the lessons fun and exciting. I'd suggest everybody to try his lessons out, not only chess.

Excellent! Excellent! Excellent! Batuhan is gifted at teaching drums to students no matter what the age. I learned more in three months from him than I did from my previous instructor in 18 months.

Batu is a great teacher, he is very knowledgeable and understanding. At times he was strict, but you could sense he was doing it for your betterment. He was always available for me and anything questions I needed to ask him. Although he is younger than me, it definitely felt like I was being taught someone with lots of wisdom.

Judy is a very patient and passionate teacher. I have very little Spanish experience, and she took my skill level as well as my own personal requests regarding the lessons into account. It was easy to tell that she has years of experience backing her and was a pleasure as soon as the first lesson began. Should my time open up again, I will definitely try and get in contact her.. assuming she isn't swamped with students then!
