The first lesson was a little stressful for my daughter but Stephanie made her feel comfortable and not overwhelmed.

Stephanie was an INSTANT "hit" with our Granddaughter. She had a great time for her 1st lesson, and can't wait to practice this week, and grow in skills.

Houston, TX

I have over a decade of experience teaching conversation, grammar to ESL students. I use a variety of materials (based on the students' interests and learning styles). I am fluent in Spanish and know some Portuguese, so I am very aware of the typical mistakes students make from those backgrounds and can help them understand the differences between the two languages better. I really enjoy learning about other cultures and helping students understand American culture.

I have been taking lessons from Cheryl for a couple of months now and have been very happy. She has gone the extra mile and has worked to make sure that I have what I need to learn Spanish. I'm a beginner and I have found it very useful to have Cheryl to speak with and explain questions instead of only having a textbook or online tool.

Georgina is an excellent instructor. She teaches very effectively and adds very practical information to her lessons that will come up in every day conversation. I have been taking classes with Georgina for 8 months, and then moved to Puerto Rico. The Spanish skills I gained from Georgina are very useful.

A wonderful experience! Love the fact that she is from Argentina and is able to assist me with Spanish as it is spoken there since I travel there 2-3 times per year. Georgina is very friendly and makes you feel right at home. I am looking forward to our next lesson!
