Yan demonstrated her excellent understanding of the Chinese and English languages. She wrote sentences in Chinese that I had developed in English to assist students in mastering sight words. The sentences contained many idioms in English that Yan was able to quickly translate into equivalent Chinese. Yan is knowledgebale and a pleasure to work with.
Frances did a great job helping me to improve my painting. I had had great difficulty finding a way to learn classical painting techniques before Frances. Contemporary art and artists seem to skip over the basics. Frances helped me learn incredible techniques - simple and complex - that vastly improved my painting in only a few months! She knows an endless amount and will never hesitate to help you. If you email her with a question expect a bizarrely prompt essay in reply (in a good way). She is so detailed and careful with communicating her teachings. If you're in a tutor session with Frances, make sure to bring a notebook or else you'll miss a lifetime of teachings! She is also great for helping out with college applications--of finally getting those classic still-lifes and self portraits done. She helped me build my portfolio in just two months! Frances is a phenomenal tutor, I don't think I could have chosen a better one. I wish I could have brought her to England with me where I recently just moved.
Aparna is an extremely knowledgeable, overall outstanding tutor. She explains concepts clearly and thoroughly, and she genuinely wants her students to do well and succeed. She will make sure every minute of your lesson is valuable to your learning. She is also very personable and friendly.
Another quality that makes her a great tutor is the fact that she is flexible; she will always make time to help you. There was a time I had a huge deadline for an assignment approaching and I needed urgent help. Even though she was feeling sick, she made sure to help me until it was done. I highly recommend Aparna as a tutor!
