"Lisa is a very friendly teacher that makes me feel comfortable"

Lisa is a very friendly teacher that makes me feel comfortable and without any pressure during our conversation in english. She’s able to instantly and accurately correct the mistakes that I made as I speak, and gives constructive feedback accordingly. I feel like talking to her as a friend more than a teacher during our private lessons, which is very important to increase my fluency and confidence when speaking in english. 

"Lisa customized the classes according to my needs and objectives"

As I have just resumed my marketing career in Canada, I was looking for some English for business classes to improve my communication and confidence in the new position. I had the chance to connect with Lisa, and she was very professional, didactic, and familiar with the expressions I was struggling to understand and incorporate into my vocabulary. I really appreciate her flexibility to tailor and customize the classes according to my needs and objectives.

"Lisa is an excellent teacher, especially in teaching business communication:

Lisa is an excellent teacher, especially in teaching business communication in English. We reviewed my CV and cover letter in our lesson, and she gave me practical advice to effectively and clearly show my experience to the employer. Now I am confident about my documents. I’m looking forward to preparing for interviews with her!
