I highly recommend Adam, very organized classes. He is being a great help on improving my communication skills. I have increased my vocabulary and improved my pronunciation.

Lisset, 11 lessons with Adam

Qualified and professional

He taught an ESL lesson. He started by evaluating our English level and detecting the areas to improve. His lessons are well planned. He focused on grammar correction, verbal tenses, sentence construction and vocabulary. Highly recommended.

Andrea, 4 lessons with Adam

Extremely patient and smart

Adam is very thoughtful in the way he approaches verbal concepts. He really broke down sentence structure and how to read sentences to find not only meaning, but purpose of each word within a passage so I could more quickly find the correct answer. I'm grateful to be able to use him as my tutor.

Dela, 6 lessons with Adam
