11/06/2015La Difference Auto School
I had a completely different experience from the other reviewers I see here. The classes were very reasonably priced and the management was always professional and helpful to me, always. They worked around my schedule and I was never penalized when I cancelled even a minute before scheduled driving practice. The main problem I encountered was contradictory approaches when I had someone other than my regular instructor working with me. I was lucky to have Gabriel as my instructor for the most and he was very meticulous, and was very invested in my learning to drive and passing the test. There is a fantastic method to his teaching that prepared me well for the rigors of the road and the test. I went to this school after having experiences with impatient teachers at another school, so I went there with a tough zero tolerance attitude for impatience. I was direct whenever I felt any teacher was not operating with the patience I demanded, I let them know straight up that I was not going to deal with any attitude and impatience. So if you are going to this or any driving school, expect teachers who are impatient at times but that should not be a factor you cant vary especially if the teacher is excellent otherwise. Take control of your learning. ask questions until they are answered and don't be afraid to say from one adult to another "you are being very impatient and I am not going to tolerate this today". WRT the accent, I do not speak creole but when at the times I did not understand a driver, I asked him to repeat, just as we do in NYC when we encounter someone whose English accent is not exactly the same as ours.On the day of my test, Gabriel was the one giving me tips all the way to the road test site. To each his own I guess, but I had a great experience with this school. I did not pass the first road test because I obviously was not prepared, I just hadn't taken enough classes. I cant blame a school for that. I passed the second time because I took many more classes in prep. Nobody can make driving automatic for you, it depends on practice and practice depends on the number of classes you pay for (if you don't have a family or friend with a car to practice in your own time). I would highly recommend La Difference if you are like me, who was looking for reasonably priced instruction, close to home (Brooklyn) professional friendly management who always accommodated me, and experienced, talented and though sometimes tough teachers such as Gabriel.

We transferred to this school from our district Magnet school, PS 133, and I couldn't be happier. The staff is concerned and caring, the teachers are excellent and my daughter is undoubtedly thriving here. She went from being indifferent about school to being extremely engaged and enthusiastic. The small community is warm and friendly, the student body is diverse, with wonderful children and the atmosphere is always calm and nurturing (my daughter couldn't get over the fact that no teachers yell at this school). I wouldn't transfer her to any other place (including private schools) after observing the positive changes that have occurred in under a year in her learning habits and she has progressed beyond my expectations in a very short time. I highly recommend Brooklyn Prospect Charter Elementary for promoting such a learning positive environment where kids are encouraged to be curious, imaginative, and their best possible selves.
hello everyone.before i start , i have to say thanks again to mr DUNES, he is an amazing instructor. he works from his heart, he gives everything a student need to pass his road test. at first i couldn"t believe. if ill get my license one day. i was very eager to get my license, but , i wasnt ready. to be honest, but since globex school gave me MR DUNES. as instructor, he always told me my friend , all ur need is to follows the rules. respect stop sign, parking always turn ur head observe, before pulling out. then the day came. 10/26/2012, at 11:39:26. i respect everything, and the result. i definitely got my driver license. i highly recoomend MR DUNES to the new student. there is no human being perfect, but for sure he is perfect as instructor.. thanks to globex too. for having an amazing man like him on their team.

ASA is not a bad college, it is not a good one either. I remember i was at ASA , the one in Brooklyn , I felt down the stairs, i had a big cut on my finger that was bleeding. I went to their health department, they didn't have a ban- aid to give to me. they didn't care about me at all . i was very disappointed. this is my last semester, i can't wait to get out of here. They have a mini mini library, mini lunch room, mini restroom... i think the ASA is way too expensive for that...If you think about coming to ASA think twice, and make sure you speak up, because there are many things the won't tell you at the beginning , when you will find out it will be too late for you... ASA is one of the last college i would recommend to anybody......
