Jesse is exactly what you would want in a tutor. He is extremely knowledgeable and has excellent intuition on how to present information in an understandable way. His lesson plans are extremely flexible to how you are learning the information. Highly recommended if you are looking for a Spanish language tutor.
Theo
I would recommend Jesse for any tutoring need without reservation. In our household, Jesse has helped amplify the Spanish learning for a middle/hs student, helped an older student with the application process for graduate work and worked with someone on writing. He’s phenomenal at all of it for the following reasons: his patience, intelligence and good nature are exceptional; he can work with all temperaments; he will meet your student where they are. Most important: he is systematic and provides real executive functioning support for each task. He is an unusually talented tutor and human being.
Charlie
Highly recommend Jesse as a Spanish tutor! Have been working with Jesse for almost 9 months (2 hrs + / weekly) and my Spanish fluency has rapidly increased over this period. Jesse's lesson plans are highly curated for my specific goals, learning style and interests. It's been a pleasure working with Jesse and appreciate his willingness to accommodate with my busy work / travel schedule.

General Note: I majored in Spanish undergrad, and have explored a number of different way to continue learning in NYC - group classes and language programs have their value but can not complete with in-person, 1v1 instruction.

Christopher is very knowledgeable and passionate about the language he teaches. He is patient, flexible and kind with his feedback. I have truly enjoyed my time learning Spanish and can not wait to continue with lessons. I would highly recommend Christopher!
Ethan
Christopher is an extremely friendly teacher who works hard to find you a goal to work towards for your instrument. He helps you if you mainly want to self study, or he helps choose songs and methods to learn if you want to study with him mostly.

I’d definitely recommend him for beginners!

🇯🇵 This class is for only Japanese learners! アメリカン・ハリウッド・イングリッシュ英会話を学びませんか?日本人の方(18歳以下)の為の初心者向けの英会話レッスンです。アメリカの南カリフォルニア州ロサンゼルスに20年以上在住しております。今すぐ役立つアメリカ・ハリウッド英語の英会話をズームでお教え致します。世界各国のどこからでも学んで頂く事ができます。

🌟英語には色んなアクセントがありますが、アメリカのロサンゼルスの標準な英語が1番世界で使わせています。エンターテイメント業界があるハリウッド、また世界的にビジネスを広げている会社はアメリカの会社が1番多いので、標準なアメリカン英語の発音を使う事が好ましいのです。また、アメリカのニュース・キャスターは全てロサンゼルス(南カリフォルニア)の発音に統一されています。例えばアメリカのニューヨーク州、ケンタッキー州やテネシー州など他の州は日本語と同じように方言や強いアクセントがあります。発音が違うと”田舎から来たの?”と思われてしまいがちなのが正直なところ現実です。日本語で例えると、東京弁が標準語ですが、九州弁や秋田弁など習ってしまうと仕事や普通の会話で使えなくなりますね。それと同じで標準なアメリカ・ロサンゼルス発音(南カリフォルニア)の英語が最も好ましいのです。

The reviews of Toshi outlined a tutor who was fully devoted to the craft of teaching the Japanese language. They were accurate with their description of this amazing tutor. None of the reviews are inflated. Toshi makes the pain of the language tolerable while delivering accurate information - grammar and vocabulary. I would highly recommend him for learners at any level.

Toshi was a great teacher! Very patient with teaching and answering all the pop culture questions I had throughout the months!

My son has been working with Toshi for 3 years now, and he has developed a true love for the language and culture of Japan. Toshi is a great instructor and a wonderful human being. We couldn't be happier with this experience!

I understand the difficulties of learning English, especially when coming from a completely different language such as Mandarin Chinese or Cantonese. As I learn more about the Chinese language, I've learned how to break the communication and cultural barriers.

I'd love to help improve English speaking, writing, communication, and overall understanding of the English language, specifically tailored for native Chinese speakers.

English is my first language. I have studied its grammar and phonetics since childhood, and I've worked as a professional writer and editor since 2010. For 11+ years, I have helped native speakers, children and adults, with all areas of language arts, especially writing, grammar, and reading comprehension. I am interested in helping advanced ESL students strengthen and improve their reading, writing, and pronunciation skills.

Natalie took her time to understand my kids needs and create lessons to fill gaps in their math knowledge and build from there. She gave some homework throughout the week to help my kids catch up in basic math.

Natalie was great at communicating with me after every session. She always gave a detailed summary and the plan for next week.

Thank you!
Deniz
Amazing, patient and funny! Natalie helped me prepare for my PSAT and she was amazing. I love everything about the way she teaches. The questions seem easy when she explains them and you feel comfortable with her.

Natalie really goes above and beyond than any other tutor my daughter has had. From evaluating her before to see where she was, to assigning work to keep her learning before her next lesson. Very impressed!

Essentially a tense will indicate the timing of an action. There are three basic tenses in Englis …
