Testimonials

Ms T:
It was such a pleasure to meet you in person today. 
The speech and debate class has been an awesome experience for Shaivi. She has grown, learnt and thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it. 
A special thanks to you, for keeping them engaged, inspiring them to soar. All your efforts made a huge impact, and we are very appreciative of the same. 
I have not recd anything from Guru's education to provide feedback, but would love to do so. 

Please guide me on how and where to provide feedback.

We would also like for Shaivi to continue pursuing the debate and speech class/ club in a structured way. Please do help guide me to where I can inquire about the same within Guru or others you recommend. 

Will you be teaching any more classes in the area? If so, kindly do pass the information along to me as well.

The Teacher Kim was amazing. She was very approacable and handled the kids very well. We would want her to conduct the class next year as well.
 
 
Romeo
Mr. Romeo is an excellent kids' public speaking/speech teacher. He made learning fun. He was knowledgeable, funny, and energetic. He always had a smile. Tyler truly enjoyed his class and at the same time learned a lot. I could see improvements in Tyler's speech/presentation week after week. Mr. Romeo is fantastic! My only suggestion is for him (or any other teacher) to either give handouts listing each week's homework topic or email them to the parents so that we don't have to rely on the kids' memory of the assignment topic. I had doubts on a couple of occasions that he may have misunderstood the topic of the homework assignment.

Public Speaking and Debate skills are as essential as foreign language, music and art to education and greatly assist students with math, English, history and science. I am so grateful that this opportunity was offered in Novato, even more appreciative to have had such a wonderful, informative, kind, patient teacher, Ms. Edwards, to teach the class. Thank you.

Jill
This is a great class for kids. My kids enjoy sharing ideas and presenting their speeches to their peers. Jill Morrison is an excellent teacher. I've already signed my kids up for the next class.

Jordan, thank you very much for teaching this course.  All my kids enjoyed it. - Tony Yeh (Paren at Pleasanton Park and Rec) May 2015
 

My daughter is a 4th grader that attends Public Speaking and Debate club at her school (West Valley Elementary).  My daughter loves this class and has learned so much.  She has grown more confident with public speaking.  We appreciate the way you tailored your program according to the kid's level.  Teacher Trisha May 2015

 

I am very glad to see my kid's improvement this year, thanks to Mr. Romeo Marquez. I just want to share this information with you.
 
Best Regards,

Also, Quinn brought up your Ted Talk and we both watched it together. Impressive!
The next morning she woke up and asked me if I thought she’d ever be a persuasive speaker. I said most definitely.Then she went on to say that she has a need to persuade people to do something about our environment. That we are killing ourselves. She felt it was her duty.
Heavy stuff for a just- turned 10 year old! 
She is a passionate person, and I’m not sure where she will take this, but I feel it is because of you and your Ted Talk, that this was inspired!
I feel quite lucky that she has enrolled in this class this year and that you are her teacher. She really enjoys it and you!
Thank you for what you do for these kids. I truly appreciate it.
 
Best,
Ellen (Quinn’s Mom)

 

 "great class. we will definitely do it again. if it was just once a year that is ok too. mrs wolff has sat through it and she says the guy that does it is great and it is amazing what he gets the kids to do."

-- Murwood Elementary School parent

 

-"We liked the class and would enroll our son in it whenever it is
available, so it would be nice to have it again in the fall."

 

"We, as parent, liked the class, but our kids complained about the added homework they had to do in order to prepare for the next class every week ;(... I understand both sides. I felt the class was helpful for my kids to be comfortable getting in front of a classroom. It would be great if they could video tape our kids to see how much they have improved from beginning vs. the end. I would sign my other child (who has not taken the class yet) up if it was offered once a year. My kids (who have taken this class) don't want to do this class again because of the extra homework ;(...-

Thank you, Tom!  I'm getting great feedback from the kids...they love the class!
