10 Casting lessons
Chiara was born, raised, and educated there, so her insider information and advice are invaluable resources for a tourist who looks to go beyond the usual guidebook suggestions. Her at-home assignments were challenging, instructive, and geared to my interests. She is a whiz at finding sites on the internet to supplement the lessons. This is not a sideline for her; she is an expert and consummate professional. There were no posted reviews of Chiara when I was casting about for a tutor. Lucky strike, indeed.
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 creates an amazing environment in which to learn and feel comfortable in even when I make mistakes. She is always very encouraging, but especially when I lose patience with myself. I highly recommend Reem as an Arabic tutor; she is thorough in her teachings and explanations and helps you grasp the language quickly. She makes learning Arabic fun to the point where you can’t wait until your next lesson!
