Over the years, I've taken 285 lessons on iTalki. I have to say that April has really stood out as a great teacher. She is spending time outside of class preparing materials to make our classes better. She is always happy and energetic. I can't say enough good things about her.

The teacher's punctuality is highly appreciated, and her professionalism is evident in every interaction. With her specialized degree in teaching Filipino, I have full confidence in her instruction. It sets her apart from other tutors. I'm grateful for her patient correction of my pronunciation. I'm continuously expanding my vocabulary with her guidance. Her flexibility in accommodating my learning preferences makes her a standout teacher.

Another informative and fruitful lesson with April Ruth today - little by little I am building whole sentence structures, increasing my vocabulary and becoming more autonomous in my expression.
