She was also patient, taking the time to explain pronunciation and make me repeat until I got it right, and always encouraging. She is very knowledgeable about her mother tongue and an excellent pedagogue. Not everyone who is an expert in their language is able to impart that knowledge to the extent that they can teach another person to speak. I had started on my own, using several online and cd language learning systems. While I learned a lot, it was very scattered.
He is polite yet firm when the student has not practiced/learned to the expected level. Ian uses not only his personal knowledge of the language but incorporates flashcards, a language book and workbook that have CD supplements. We look forward having him come each week.
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!!
