Michelle was a devoted and engaging teacher. Ever smiling, her style allows prior clarity on method and flexibility in customizing to the needs of the student.
The initial hitch with scheduling online on TakeLessons were quickly resolved on our first class.
It was an excellent opportunity for speech enhancement.

Ben takes you right down to the lick-log with what he wants and expects from you. At the beginning I didn't appreciate the various directions he was taking me, like having to learn various chords, etc. on a keyboard. But I can see now that it is all coming together. Don't get the bighead, Ben, but it's all coming together now.

Daniel was a great instructor to learn with, he was very kind and likable as well as being a good teacher with a great understanding Spanish with an emphasis on spoken Spanish over academic Spanish. Daniel was a great teacher I would recommend to anyone.

Marwan has put a lot of effort both in and out of our lesson slot to make these sessions a great learning experience for our 14 year old daughter. His weekly recap emails are terrific, too.

Mr. Colin is an excellent tutor! He is the first tutor of many from whose teaching my AP Chemistry grades improved drastically. He is very easy going and also easy to talk to. If you don't understand something, he will try to explain it in as many ways possible; just make sure to stop and let him know that you didn't understand the concept. I am very satisfied with his teaching style and therefore plan to have more lessons with Mr. Colin in college chemistry classes. I would 100% recommend him to anyone!
