Each lesson is well balanced in terms of review and new material so I don’t feel overwhelmed. She incorporates grammar, speaking, vocabulary, listening exercises and writing as well as cultural and social etiquette tips. Highly recommend!"

"I have been taking Spanish lessons online with Ana for almost a year. I am a business executive with a frequent travel schedule but Ana's flexibility has made this work for me. Ana is very good at pacing the lessons according to proficiency level and she makes it fun with different exercises and activities. I am still at the beginner level but I am feeling more confident when I am around Spanish speakers. I feel particularly confident in my ability to read and understand short passages, signs, directions etc. I highly recommend Ana to people of all ages and skill levels."

"My 9 year old son has had French lessons once a week with Elsa for the last 3 years both in person and currently online. From the start it was clear, Elsa is a highly skilled and accredited teacher for children. Each lesson starts with a song which kick starts my son’s engagement. The hour-long class has a fun pace to it and is well structured to balance learning & fun. Elsa is also very kind and good humored which makes my son relish his classes. Watching him gain confidence in his French language skills has been so rewarding. I am extremely grateful to have found such an exceptional French tutor as Elsa."
