Mr. Mena is a very kind, patient, thoughtful, and helpful teacher, not just on improving English level but also on expanding perceptions of life. His teaching style is flexible, like formal, informal, or mixing them together in one class. After lessons, he arranged homework, including vocabulary learning, reading comprehension, and writing task, and then discussed and corrected my answers carefully. He also offered some short videos as material for discussing in next lesson. He always patiently typed out each word, which I don't know, with related definition. I appreciate Mr. Mena's great help and would like to keep having his lessons.

After taking over ten classes, I am writing this comment for Mr. Mena. He is a patient and professional English teacher. He knows how to personalize learning plans at a student’s level with teaching experience in ESL. By using materials, he provides me with chances to talk fluently, corrects each common mistake, and gives me positive feedback. Before every lesson, he prepares articles, videos, and tasks for each student and helps me learn to use words better in English. In conclusion, Mr. Mena is a competent and responsible teacher on italki. I recommend him without hesitation.

Gerardo is an excellent teacher, very knowledgeable and patient. He has always been available and open to my needs. He tailors the lessons to allow you to reach your goals. We do a lot of conversation, his approach is based on dialogue to be able to become more fluent and this makes the lesson very pleasant and profitable. In a few lessons I'm managing to increase my level with new terms and to use English in real contexts. Gerardo's strengths, in addition to being openminded and patient, are collaboration and adaptability. He helps you with tips, articles, videos and other materials to help you learn to express yourself better in English. He is competent and ineresting to work with. I recommend Gerardo without hesitation.

Gerardo is a skilled teacher with a wide knowledge area. He is attentive to small off-topic questions appearing during the lesson. We're preparing for my first job interview but simultaneously solving my grammar and pronunciation mistakes not putting them off until the next time or a separate lesson. He also tries to explain what he means until he's sure that I understand. Such features look valuable to me because I believe that every solved and understood topic improves my English skills.
