And, let me tell you, it is extraordinarily valuable to have an avid and experienced native Russian speaker guide you through the language, step by step and in person; I cannot exaggerate how crucial this is for someone like me who wishes to learn Russian from the ground up. Juliya is a very gifted teacher who is very patient, adaptive, understanding, and knowledgeable. Juliya paces her lessons well and is very attentive and receptive about if/when any confusion or questions arise.
She is a business professional and does an amazing job at delivering an encouraging learning experience, for my son. 1/8/2014: Tonight was my son's final lesson with Carole before his SSAT, which will be in two days. We feel so fortunate that we had Carole and my son is feeling a lot more confident in his ability to perform well in the exam. couldn't ask for a better tutor!! She genuinely cares about her students and is truly committed and encouraging!!
She makes him feel comfortable and confident with his knowledge after each appointment. We went to Stephanie for tutoring help for the upcoming SAT/ACTs. She easily teaches from each topic (math, English, and writing); it's obvious that she's comfortable in all these areas. She went through his PSAT, that he took last fall, and was able to help him understand the problems that he missed and teach him the concepts behind each one.
