Dustin is an excellent teacher who is always utterly open to communicate and help his students. He is willing to help his students when they have last-minute assignments. He treasures students’ time and recognizes their needs during the class, and he always explains materials patiently until students fully understand them. Dustin has helped me to improve my critical thinking skills. He taught me how to analyze readings effectively, how to write in-depth essays, use figurative language, and implicitly and explicitly demonstrate theme.

Mr. Stevens is a professional English tutor. My first trial class is about a mock interview; he prepared a lot of different questions for me and gave me many useful and professional feedbacks. Now I'm taking his IELTS courses. I think his most significant strength is that he knows how to change the teaching way that best suits you, no matter what English level you are. He'll change his speaking and vocabulary that makes you feel like it's not too hard or too easy, let you feel both challenge and progress quickly. He also provides flexible courses that aim to your different goals. Anyway he is a very professional and friendly tutor. I never write comments on Google but this time I highly recommend that those who want to learn English may consider taking his courses.

I consider that the best of tutoring is to get one on one attention to my writing weakness and to develop a plan and exercises to work on. I can say that I have improved my writing skills and I am able to proofread my essays with more skills than before. It has been a great experience to have personalized attention and ways of improving my writing skills.

Help meticulously especially in writing, gives opportunities to practice all around 4 sections. I enjoyed having class with you too, Dustin.

The best thing about tutoring is that I get to receive helpful feedback that actually helps improve my writing.

We have lots of practice and specific feedback, and every time we are learning a new thing, and get practice. Good job, Mr. Stevens!

Dustin seems to have prepared lessons prior to class. Most in person English tutors are spontaneous and rarely prepare lesson plans.

My son enjoys his tutoring sessions, and feels that his writing is improving!

Mr. [Stevens] is a great Editor. I used his services for the first time for my personal statement for the LSAC. My undergrad is in Finance, so my writing skills definitely could use some help. To be 100% honest I wasn't sure what to expect. Mr. [Stevens] surpassed my expectations. He is a true professional mostly I am extremely pleased with his turnaround time. The price was extremely reasonable for the service and work he provided. I will definitely continue to use him and take advantage of his expertise as I continue with grad school.
