she is a great tutor!

I have been working with Sherry since April. We meet each other at a cafe and library. She always motivates me and makes me get confidence with English. And she is sometimes like my mom and sometimes my friend. Everytime I look forward to seeing her and hope this message will be helpful for the students who look for a great tutor.

Great tutor and flexible time

Sherry has been my tutor for the past month. She is a very knowledgeable tutor. She taught me a lot about American culture and history. She is very creative in her teaching program and always uses exciting ideas in teaching English, such as asking me to read a novel and magazines, writing some papers, listening to the radio, shopping together and visiting museum. I really enjoyed having her as my tutor.
