Student Reviews

  • In his lesson I described pictures to the teacher and he typed everything I was saying while I was speaking. He then showed me my descriptions in the chat box and I was able to easily notice the English words that were incorrect. Also his emailed feedback to me was very useful and like having a second lesson, I really enjoyed his lesson with relaxed atmosphere and I plan on taking more lessons with him.

  • I like Simons lesson style. As requested he corrected my mistakes and typed correct expression in the chat box. He is very patient and gave me time to notice my mistake and correct them myself before telling me the correct answer. It was a fun and rich lesson for me, thank you sensei-Simon!

    Simon is a capable teacher, patient, easy to talk to. I was uncertain to take online lessons and thought it wouldn't be good, but I liked it a lot and think it’s a good way to learn. I would love to take lessons with him in the future. Thank you. Teacher Skype connection: 10/10 Lesson rating: 10/10 One word to describe this lesson: Great!
