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.
Yuanyang Z.

71 English lessons

I recommend him to anyone who is not native to English and wants to improve his/her English. I have been in the United States for over 11 years. Although people could mostly understand what I said, I knew that my oral English had some issues. I found Steven on Wyzant with the goal to reduce my accent. In our first class, Steven diagnosed two major problems in my oral English: wrong pronunciations in some specific sounds and incorrect grammar usage.
