"My teacher is extremely well-educated, patient, reliable, and full of interests. I made a lot of progress in a very short time. The lessons are always interesting and amusing. You learn and you learn fast."

- Beatrice, Julie Yoder's student

“I am writing this for anyone who is searching for distinguished and efficient English classes. I browsed the Internet searching for vacation English courses for my two kids and my wife. I got really lucky when I found The English Teacher Collective! We live in São Paulo, Brazil, and I was first thinking of London or New York and some very traditional courses, some of which are globally known.  It was very fortunate that in the end we finally chose Washington, DC and The English Teacher Collective.  We were able to meet the teachers via live chats before we left for the U.S.  The kids were especially thrilled that they could meet their new teachers before our arrival and were very excited about spending time with them in person. This made the overall learning experience even more rewarding and helped them gain self-confidence. Also, my wife and I could interact with the teachers and have a personal connection before we left for the U.S. Washington is a very special place with many opportunities for activities, all of which can be adapted by the instructors, for example, exploring the many museums, buying groceries in the local market, ordering meals at restaurants, walking around Georgetown and having a good time. The kids even did some gardening and had a lot of fun.  All that while learning English.  I can’t think of any better way to learn.”

- Eduardo, São Paulo, Brazil
