my experience icon My Experience With Carmenta

open quotation

Every student I have had has been positive and motivated, attentive, and focussed. I love the wonderful and insightful questions! I also love the timing of our classes. Being later in the day, our schedule allows for optimum learning. Unlike other programs I have come in contact with, ours has kind instructors who are knowledgeable and supportive.

I appreciate Carmenta's underlying philosophy of longterm learning and overall strength and understanding. I have taught two different levels and found them to be comfortably challenging for my students. They are not too hard or too easy. My students feel that they are progressing and feel good about their experience. If students adhere to our reasonable structure and work schedule, they cannot fail.

Carmenta's is a proven system with talented and devoted staff. I feel totally supported and appreciated. Who could ask for anything more?!

The Carmenta Latin Junior class is helping with my knowledge of Western Civilization as well as my vocabulary. Kathleen is understanding and patient, with a terrific knowledge of the subject matter. She is also funny and creative. She has been accommodating and she sends interesting links with background knowledge. My favorite aspect of the class is the interaction with the teacher and fellow students.
