When I was in the first year [of graduate studies] in the States and struggling with listening and speaking in English, I met my teacher for the first time. She helped me improve my listening and speaking skills in English. Since I had studied English only for tests, it was so hard for me to understand the English idioms that native speakers were using in their daily lives. I was able to learn many idioms that are useful to my everyday while I studied English with Express English 412. Also, I was provided with various topics to discuss during our lesson. From these discussions, my teacher encouraged me not only to figure out the points of articles and the arguments of the authors but also to build up my self-confidence in giving my opinion to others in English. Moreover, when talking with her, I could get closer to American culture because she talked about her family and personal things as well as academic topics. I firmly believe that this service is the best for the international students whose native language is not English and whose culture is from the non-Western world. I strongly recommend these services!
Before I took private English lessons from Express English 412, I spoke pretty poor English. My reason for starting to work on my English skills was not only my intention to reach a level which would enable me to speak about profound things but also because of my teacher's funny personality and efficient way of teaching. Her systematic and effective way of explaining grammatical rules and English expressions led me to my desired level within a few months. Thanks to her, I am planning to take an advanced English course in Oxford, which, when completed, will offer me better job and career chances here in Austria.

In technical writing class, I learned a lot of writing skills and rules. She really helped me a lot. And when I wrote my resume, Express English 412 also helped me a lot. I’m really grateful and appreciated that. We all know that it is difficult for foreigners to write a really professional, accurate resume. We cannot be as good as native speakers in grammar and vocabulary. After their modifications, the resume looks very professional and correct. My teacher was really a nice person and really, really patient. She helped me to modify my resume line by line, word by word, and it truly took a lot of her time. To be honest, her patience and earnestness in her work really touched me. I highly recommend that every person can contact Kimmy [founder of Express English 412] if you have questions about grammar and vocabulary. She is really a nice teacher.

Express English 412 did an amazing job editing my Personal Statement! I loved their suggestions and the theme of bridging [that they came up with] as this is what I initially intended to convey in my personal statement but couldn't express clearly.
When I started private classes with Express English 412, I was at a beginner level and I’ve gotten to upper intermediate in less than a year.

Express English 412 assisted me when I was applying to a post-graduate Medical education program. I am very pleased that they reviewed my application forms and essay. They not only proofread my writing but also, at the same time, gave me constructive feedback regarding my grammar and writing strategies. I was quickly able to realize my weak points and replace them with appropriate well-constructed phrases. Soon, I was able to write my own text and papers independently. What I like the most from working with them was they have the sense to explain things to you in a way so you realize the teaching points by yourself. I personally believe that the latter is crucial for learning a foreign language. My editor was always on time with the duties I asked for help. She is very professional and takes care of your learning process in detail. I truly recommend these services.

In this competitive world where every person thinks about making money, my teacher's main aim was to deliver a quality education. After I finished my English language course in my hometown, I always felt nervous about what will happen in the coming months because I wasn’t able to rely on myself to study. To my happiness, all my fear vanished when I attended my first private lesson. My teacher had that spirit that brings the best out of students. She gave me the required motivation to move ahead in life. I really thank her from the depth of my heart for being there. She was and you will be always my inspiration.
My teacher advised me on a lot of communication methods in English. Actually, when I came to the U.S., I had difficulty talking and communicating with my co-workers.There were plenty of words, idioms and grammar in the conversations in our office that were unfamiliar to me. It was very difficult to find such words in the dictionary.
Then, I decided to have private English lessons with Express English 412. Because of their experienced teaching methods and knowledge, I could really improve my English ability. As of now, I have become able to talk with customers not only for business but also for witty conversation.
