Barbara Dick

Academic Director - New York Language Center - USA

"At New York Language Center, Leonardo Reis was able to adapt readily to changes in scheduling, often with little notice. He actively participated in reflective practices, critically assessing his teaching and setting goals for future endeavors."


Dr. Barry Heselwood

Senior Lecturer in Linguistics and Phonetics - University of Leeds - England



“Leo’s M.A. Dissertation is a fascinating topic which has, on the whole, been competently investigated. The results do give some insight into the socio-phonetics of the city accent situation even though, as is acknowledged, the criteria for assigning speakers to social classes are necessarily rudimentary. “


Maria Schirta

"During his time at HCCC, Leo Reis presented a professional manner at all times within the classroom and school environment. Leo Reis demonstrated flexibility, adaptability, and initiative. He willingly accepts advice and shares his ideas and learning experiences with other teachers."
