Steve has been nothing less than absolutely amazing in helping our daughter learn Spanish. Not only is he patient, a great listener, sincere and kind in his style of teaching but his pace and understanding of how my daughter learns is what has helped her grow through each lesson. Steve has a wealth of knowledge and sincerely cares about what he teaches. We knew from the start that he was a great fit for our daughter and look forward to how this will contribute to her future. Thank you Steve for all your help and attention to helping our daughter. We appreciate you very much!
My son loved this tutor! Steve was very patient, consistent, and communicative. My son is normally a really shy guy but he opened up with Steve. My son said that Steve made a really big difference in his understanding of practice in a really short time. We will use him again.
Steve is very effective in communicating with my son. He shows genuine concern and very considerate of a young boy's heart. My son seems to open up to him very fast. Steve then teaches with high efficiency. He is a dream teacher!!!
I just had a trial lesson ws Steve. Found him quite experienced, well prepared and patient tutor who was well prepared in advance. Hope to learn basics of Spanish as soon as possible.
Steve assessed our son's knowledge/retention from Spanish 1 and made recommendations for future sessions. We're confident and excited to have Steve's support as a tutor!
I learned more with Steve in 1 hour than I've learned all semester so far from my teacher. He's great.
My daughters are 8 and 9 and had their first Spanish lesson today. Steve worked well with them. His lesson was appropriate for their ages.
Mister Steve is very pleasant and an authority on the subject matter HS Spanish 2. I learned a lot because we covered a lot of material in the textbook. I'm looking forward to having more lessons with him.
Our daughter was struggling with Spanish 2, but with Steve's help, she is seeing improvement in her grades and has a more positive attitude about the subject. Thank you, Steve!
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
