Gave me a few tips and tricks that helpen me out
From my first class, I have a good feeling choosing Justin as my teacher, and I am confident he'll prepare me well to reach my goal and have the desired result on my TOEFL exam. The communication with him is at ease and he is very accommodating.
I had a really nice time with Justin, very nice guy, talkative, can have discussion about everything, has also different programs to make sure you can have a better vocabulary, grammar or that you can improve your speaking. I recommend him highly!
Justin is a very good teacher. Recommended.
It was a real pleasure working with Justin. Always on time, very articulated and broad knowledge/awareness of the differences between the US and Europe. If you need an insight on how things work in the US, Justin is the right person. You can basically debate with him about everything, which is good for your language skills. Highly recommended !
