I fully understand the approach and needs for ESL as my children themselves benefited from this program when we first arrived in the US, from France.

In my French lessons, Isabelle has worked with me on pronunciation, reading, vocabulary and syntax. Isabelle is always patient and shows a strong command of french and how to convey concepts. I really appreciate & enjoy my lessons with Isabelle.
Kathryn
Just finished my 4th class with Isabelle. She has been very helpful with my French conversation. She meets me at my level and then challenges me. She speaks clearly and at a speed I can understand. The notes after the lesson are excellent and help me to continue my learning. I highly recommend Isabelle!
Brian
"Listener" is how I would describe Isabelle, and it's why she is a great teacher. I brought a lot of random questions into lessons each week and she helped me with all of the answers. She also used the answers to my questions to show me further examples to be able to help me frame why things were the way they were. This is my first French teacher but I couldn't be happier with the time I've gotten from Isabelle. I would highly recommend her as a teacher.

I'm a student at University at Albany working on my Master's degrees for ESL Education Program and Intercultural Communication. I am passionate about teaching, and I absolutely love the idea of cultural exchanges and learning about students! I was also an ESL student when I first came to the States and I understand how hard it can be. I have experiences in teaching a class of more than 25 students as well as one-on-one tutoring sessions of various proficiency levels. Hope to hear from you soon!

I just had my second lesson with Hikaru and I ask so many questions all the time and am just a lot as a person, but she's so patient and is really willing to answer all of my questions and go over absolutely whatever. She's also very good at explaining things and can explain the grammar side to me (I'm a big grammar proponent), which is an absolute blessing. Lessons fly by and I absolutely cannot wait for my next one.

Also, she's been helping me find resources that I can use to work on my Japanese outside of lessons. I know that some people won't do that because they want you to buy more lessons, but Hikaru genuinely just wants to help me learn both the language and the culture.

(Genesis C.) Ms. Julissa helped me comprehend the difficult concepts of my College Algebra course much more. I highly recommend her! She is friendly, patient, observant, understanding. As a result of her tutoring, she helped me raise my grade, which I was once concerned about. God bless you, Ms. Julissa! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Julissa is both kind and patient! I like that she draws out the College Algebra problems we are working through and how she emails me the work we reviewed. She methodically explains the problems and gives specific pointers for me to remember to prevent me from making similar mistakes.

"Hello,
When I moved from Russia to US in 2011, my English was at beginner’s level and I desperately needed to start speaking this language as soon as possible: especially for my job but also for my every day life.
I tried to take some ESL classes at local colleges and also study with a tutor but it did not work very well. Instead I became more afraid of making mistakes or saying something not correctly. I was frustrated and started to think that I am just not made for learning new languages.
I heard about Roman from my colleague who did intensive French language program designed and taught by mr. Nam. So he told me that Roman also teaches ESL. I decided to give it a try.
After three months of classes with Roman my English improved so much! From the beginning of classes I started to feel so motivated and everything was explained in really simple way. I don’t really understand how Roman was doing this but every class and even every homework was so interesting and so fun to do. I loved to hear myself speak English better and better. I started to use my english in any situation and I felt so confident.
Now, after four years living in US my English is much better but i know that the most important step in my progress was the program I did with Roman and I am very thankful for all his help."
