My son stopped French lesson two years ago when his high school discontinued French program, and we were looking for a tutor who could give him a short-term, intensive French class so that he can improve his very shaky French. My son has had Nilo for about a month--1.5 hr lesson, 2 times a week. We are very happy with Nilo's instruction. She is strong in every sector of French--grammar, reading, composition, and conversation; more importantly, she knows how to communicate, explain, and encouraging my son. They spent the first week deciding on curriculum, while reviewing basic grammar and vocabulary, and then they started moving really fast with lots of homework, which my son does willingly and dutifully. We are pleased that my son made a remarkably rapid progress within a month. I can't wait to see how much more progress he will make with Nilo. The best part of Nilo's teaching is that she not only teaches French, but also teaches what are the qualities to learn a new language successfully--structure, patience, self-discipline, diligence, and dedication. Nilo is one of the best teachers my son has ever had. I wish more teachers at public schools were like her.

"French Language Specialist"
In every lesson I focus on grammar, vocabulary, conversation, and pronunciation. Based on the student's level and age I decide what learning materials to use. I use my own French book for Beginner students and more advanced text books and work books for intermediate and advanced students. For children, I use various educational hands on materials as well as basic conversation for a fun and interactive learning experience. Every class is customized to the need of the student.
"Tutor UCLA graduate"
My strength is explaining crazy terms like "confidence intervals" and "linear regression" into simple terms like "range of possible results" and "how much one thing can predict an increase or decrease in another thing". If you are looking for a tutor to explain the basics of statistics in everyday language, I can be of help. The way I work is to have you send me the topic or assignment you are working on for that week and then we can review the materials together once you've given it a try. I... ... More
