OUR CUSTOMERS’ STORIES
My daughter attended Creative writing and Math Logic, and Ms.Kate and Mr.Andre are wonderful teachers. They keep it interesting all through the hour and also keep it creative. My 7 year will be going to 2nd grade this august and she learnt a lot with fun at the same time with focus.A class like environment although online where the kids are competing at the same time learning together. Would definitely going back for more classes. Highly recommend since the regular school will also be distance learning and this would help kid thorough the basics.
My girls 10 and 12 years old took an 8 session creative writing with Ms. Kate. The girls liked the teacher and the interactivity of the class even with it being online.
We were happy to find a center where children can learn so much in a friendly atmosphere. Teachers of Spanish and Russian are professionals and native speakers, what is important. They have many other classes. The owner Olga has many years of education kids , has passion and kindness, flexibility. We love LMLC and will recommend this Center to a friend!
Both of my kids are attending the LMLC school since September 2017. The owner Olga is extremely pleasant to deal with – she is very accommodating and flexible.
The additional kudos goes to my daughter’s geometry teacher Fedor. It’s hard to make a teenager girl enthusiastic about math but he keeps her engaged, which helps enormously to maintain a solid A in 9th grade Geometry Honors class of her regular school. Thank you, Olga and Fedor for your help!
I am very satisfied and recommend LMLC to anyone who wants to give their kids a high quality extra curriculum.
