I am a demanding student who values work toward results. I have been studying with Elena for almost a year now. Ellen is a professional teacher who is attentive, responsible, friendly, supportive, and goal-oriented. She is also an engaging conversationalist and a well-educated person who understands the nuances of different cultures, which is very important when learning a new language. Every class with Elena is enjoyable and interactive, and I eagerly anticipate attending each one. Ellen is one of those rare teachers who can inspire and support your goals and motivation.

I have been taking this course for 3 months. Ellen is a great teacher. She is energetic, knowledgeable and professional. In class, Ellen corrected my grammar mistakes and recorded them to give me a grammar lesson later. Ellen always assigns exercises based on my situation and creates a plan for follow-up teaching. Every class is one hour long. Sometimes we read an article together to practice my pronunciation and then discuss the topic of the article to practice my speaking skills. Sometimes Ellen creates a grammar course based on my learning situation, so that I can master grammar and practice my speaking skills at the same time. She is very responsible and often gives me some advice on English learning. She is a good teacher and also a good friend in class! I feel so lucky to have found a teacher who is a good fit for me! :)
