Perfect! Jennifer é extremamente profissional e dedicada. Também sou professora de inglês e fiz umas aulas com ela para aprimorar meus conhecimentos na língua e na didática de ensino. Super recomendo!
Maíta was a wonderful student. It was fantastic to share ideas with another online teacher. I was so happy to have a chance to work with her!
Perfect! I'm a Brazilian anesthesiologist and Jennifer is the best English teacher I've ever had for two reasons (like the TOEFL template).
First, she prepares classes tailored for the student. For example, she helped me with my interview for a job in Canada. We practiced some questions that she found on the internet that were specific to my career.
Second, we studied for the TOEFL test and also everyday vocabulary. I could practice the speaking and writing tasks during the classes and she gave me material for the reading and listening sections. Moreover, we practiced conversations about the airport, apartment rental and hospital routines. I'll need to use this kind of vocabulary when I go to Canada.
I've already recommended her to several friends of mine. She really likes her job, she answers emails quickly, and prepares notes and exercices after each class. To sum up, she's an excellent teacher.
Thank you so much, Carol. It is a pleasure teaching you and learning from you. I'm so proud of all the hard work you've done and all that you've achieved. Keep going. :)
Perfect! Je recommande vivement Jennifer. C'est une prof incroyable qui m'a fait progresser à l'oral et améliorer considérablement mon anglais. Elle a su être à l'écoute de mes besoins et me proposer des cours sur mesure et adaptés. Elle est très pédagogue et m'a apporté beaucoup de confiance. N'hésitez pas à la contacter!
Perfect! J'ai pris 2 cours avec Jennifer pour préparer un entretien d'embauche en anglais. Jennifer est une très bonne professeur. Elle m'a aidé a bien formuler toutes mes idées.
Après chaque cours, Jennifer m'a envoyé un document très complet reprenant toutes les remarques faites pendant le cours (vocabulaire, prononciation, tournure de phrases, grammaire, ...) ainsi que des exemples pour aller plus loin.
Très sympathique et souriante, chaque cour se déroule dans la bonne humeur :)
Je vous recommande vivement Jennifer
Thanks to Jennifer, I got the job !
Perfect! Jennifer replied quickly, she helped me a lot for a job interview. She is a very good teacher, patient and friendly. I highly recommend !
Alexandra is a wonderful student! She is very motivated to improve her English and I am sure she will do so very quickly. I look forward to giving her classes!
I can just recommend Jennifer as an ESOL teacher. She’s been given me classes for two months. I wanted to improve my conversational skills and to feel confident in English. Jennifer is a very professional teacher. She truly listens to your needs and always sends me a detailed feedback with all my errors. She’s also a motivating a interesting woman. Not only am I improving my linguistic skills but also my cultural knowledge about the US. It’s always a pleasure to skype with her.
I met Jennifer through a friend who had ESL classes with her some months ago. She told me that Jennifer was the best teacher she´d ever had. So, I hired her to help my son improve his English and get a better score on the TOEFL test. We had just moved from Brazil to the USA and my son only had a few days to study and prepare for the test. Jennifer did a very good job with him.
After that nice experience, I decided to have intensive private classes with her. During that time, I could see what a good teacher she is because she has a tremendous amount of knowledge of what she is teaching. She also has the ability to pass it on to her students in an effective way because she knows the process of learning a new language.
I believe Jennifer was born to teach ESL students, as she is an open-minded person and likes to not only teach but also learn from her students.
I am from France and Jennifer is the best English teacher I’ve ever had!!! We communicate mainly by emails and she always answers very rapidly to my emails, gives me very useful tips, and helps me to have the best English essays I can (as English is not my first language)! She cares a lot about her students and is very professional. Highly, highly, highly recommend.
Jennifer is excellent with people. She loves helping others learn while acknowledging that she is also learning from them. Her teaching style is learner-centered. She gets to know her students and makes lesson plans that meet their specific needs. She loves what she does. Jennifer has worked with students from many countries. She is culturally sensitive and eager to create an environment of respect and a love for learning. I watched Jennifer grow from a new teacher who learned the ropes by taking risks to a professional in her field who helps students to improve their language skills and supports teachers in developing their instructional skills. She is among the very best of the hundreds of teachers whom I have trained, observed, and supervised over the years. Students love her, and her classes are really fun!
