WHAT OUR STUDENTS ARE SAYING

Ricardo

RICARDO BOCK, ENGLISH TEACHER

I had the distinctive pleasure to meet Mr Gomez last year in Toronto and I can assure he is an outstanding English teacher. I could observe his amazing in-class performance that is joyful, professional and really insightful for the students. I wish nothing less than absolute success to this great teacher.

Paula

PAULA DE PAIVA, PROJECT MANAGER

Leo is by far the best english teacher I've had. In his classes, he chooses to discuss subjects from our everyday life. He makes us reflect about things that matter, so the language and grammar really sticks to our minds. I totally recommend his classes for anyone who wants not only to learn English, but to acquire skills to learn any other language by yourself.
