Fenny M.

9 English lessons

Elena taught me how to speak, read and write with proper English. She taught how to speak with correct pronunciation, so I can reduce my accent. After Elena taught me everything I need to improve my English. Now, I can speak English more confident and natural than before. Also I can write English with correct grammar. As someone who has gone through her English tutorial. I highly recommend Elena; she has extensive knowledge of teaching English for ESL student.
Chulwan I.

61 English lessons

First of all, Karen always makes me feel at ease. This gives me confidence, so I enjoy speaking English. Even if I use broken English or my pronunciation is repeatedly wrong, she corrects my mistakes kindly. That is a big chance for to me to improve my English without fear. Karen's tolerant attitude encourages me to speak English more. I have also learned to speak English efficiently in class with Karen.
Byron F.

37 English lessons

She is very patient and flexible. She responds quickly to emails and keeps me informed on what she is doing for each tutoring session. Update 3/16/2014 This is the end of the term for my son's English class. This term he received an A in his English class. Without a doubt, the help he has received from Ann has improved his grade in English. If you are looking for an English tutor, I would definitely recommend Ann.
