Adriana saved my son from dropping Spanish class. The school warned him that he will be eliminated from Spanish class if he doesn't improve his grades within one month. Adriana gave him the confidence that he needed. In less than one month, he brought his grade from 67 to 81. Thanks Adriana.

I have now had a second lesson with Cyrus. Tonight's lesson was very valuable as he introduced a dialog in Spanish. I have never studied Spanish, ever! I have had 2 classes with Cyrus and I can now greet someone in Spanish already. I can say some very basic phrases, such as "good morning" or "nice to meet you, my name is Mary, what is your name". Tonight we used google documents, it was a very effective. He has listened to what I'd like to achieve and is using that information as a basis on which he builds my lessons around. His plan is geared specifically around my expectations. That, I think, is pretty awesome!!!
