I've been working with Roberta for the past few weeks and all I can say is--she's an amazing tutor. Not only is she a good teacher, but she is a great mentor who also motivates me too excel. Furthermore, she is always prepared with a lesson that she has specifically tailored to improve my flaws. In addition, she has fine-tuned my writing, and has helped me define my own writing style. As a result of working with her not only have my grades increased, but I've impressed my Professors' as well.
A true profesional--Roberta's background and knowledge has enlightened me as a writer; for that reason, I am more than satisfied with my experience.

I have already taken the TOEFL test twice before I started taking classes with Roberta. I needed to achieve a score of 26 at the speaking test in order to advance in my veterinary career, and I was feeling very frustrated I couldn't achieve it in the previous two tests.
Roberta was very patient and helped me to identify my weaknesses, and she gave me great advice on how to have stronger answers at the test.
After 10 classes with her, my total score at the TOEFL was 111, and I achieved 27 in the speaking test.
She is as great teacher, and I would recommend her to anyone that is interested in having a great score at the TOEFL test.
"A great tutor for essay writing."

Roberta is great on giving valuable advice on my essays. She provided advice according to my customized needs. She not only gave advice on grammar, sentence structure, word choice, but also on content, and the essay structure. She made my essays look more smooth and more reader friendly. She's very patient answering all my questions and our section went very efficiently. I sincerely recommend Roberta.

I took classes with Roberta three times a week for a moths before my TOEFL test. I needed to score minimum a 100. After Roberta taught me how to deal with the words of semantic structures I didn't know and how to arrange my essays I scored 110! I am very pleased with the results. Thank you Roberta.

She's amazing! I would recommend her 100%! I'm applying for Juilliard and I needed the TOEFL. I didn't have any prior preparation for it. In 3 weeks she was able to have me ready for it! And I got a much higher score than what I needed! She's also such a nice person and so professional!
"Very good teacher"

Roberta is a very good teacher and very patient with me. She teaches me all the things that I need remember. She is very professional and polite. She prepares the classes very well. Is a pleasure to meet her.
"She's helping me to find my voice."
- Cheryl, New York, NY on 5/9/12
Roberta's unique and personalized approach empowers you to put your pen to the paper.
As a perfectionist I am often paralyzed by the very thought of writing. After only a few weeks with Roberta, I'm producing better work and beginning to enjoy the process.
Writing this very public review is an example of how much more confident I've become.
- Marcela, Hoboken, NJ on 12/13/11
I had taken the TOEFL twice before I contacted Roberta to help me pass the speaking section of this test because I needed a really high score.
Not only she helped me improve my skills for taking the test, but also helped me improve my confidence. After only 9 lessons, I was able to get 28/30 in the speaking section of the TOEFL.
I definitely recommend Roberta as a tutor.
- Ruinan, New York, NY on 9/24/11
Roberta is very patient and has been giving me great editing tips. So far, I have learned a handful of useful grammar usage that will definitely improve my writing skills. She is question friendly and I never hesitated to ask her any questions. Moreover, she will correct my pronunciation mistakes, as well as teach me idioms. She is very nice to be with: the class atmosphere has been relaxing, but never without the tension to make you focus.
