She is clear and concise, makes her expectations known from the start. She reviews any difficult areas completely until the subject at hand is mastered.

Cheryl is a wonderful teacher! I feel so lucky to have chosen her as my teacher. I have learned so much with her help, not just the language but the culture also. Both were invaluable during a recent trip to Mexico. Thanks Cheryl!

Cheryl is wonderful to work with. She provides not only basic instruction but a great deal of info about Spanish speaking countries, their culture and variations in language. She is thoughtful and provides explanations beyond the actual lesson material. I have been working with her for the past 12 months or more and have made a lot more progress than with previous attempts at learning Spanish. Highly recommend her for anyone at any level. John F

Cheryl is a wonderful Spanish instructor! She is patient and keeps the lessons interesting. She is ideal for the student looking to not only speak Spanish but also understand the culture. Her curriculum is something you need to dedicate time to and not expect to spend a few sessions on and be done. I look forward to continuing to learn from her!

Cheryl has went beyond my expectations of what it means to have a good instructor! Learning a language takes time and can be difficult, I'm not always the quickest learner. I've been given nothing but patience, and encouragement none the less. Flexible with scheduling and always giving helpful tips. She is personable and honestly cares about my improvement of myself and her other students. If you're looking for an instructor you've found the best here!

It has been my good fortune to have selected Cheryl as my Spanish tutor! Cheryl has patiently helped me learn many of the basic concepts that eluded me previously. Cheryl is thorough and doesn't move on until you have a solid understanding of the lesson at hand. She makes learning effortless! Being so well versed in the language and culture her lessons are fun and very interesting!!

Ms. Cheryl was a pleasure to work with today. She was very informative of the rules and regulations from Takelessons. She thoroughly gave explained to me the program and asked questions regarding what my expectations are as a student. Ms. Weaver made me feel extremely comfortable about learning at my own pace. This is important to me because I was worried that if I wasn't getting it fast enough that she would get frustrated resulting my lack of confidence. I can honestly believe that this is the teacher that will get me where I want to be for my career.

As a teacher Ms. Weaver shared helpful tips to help me to practice what I learned in my first lesson so that I can be better prepared for future lessons. I am confident that this Ms. Weaver will stick by me and guide me to where I need to be in order to achieve my goals. I know that before this year is out that with the help of my teacher I will go from being a Communication Specialist to a Communication Specialist who speaks Spanish.

Being new to learning Spanish, Cheryl was focused on the fundamentals during my 1st lesson and was very patient...important for me to build my confidence.

I am enjoying my lessons very much! It is so helpful to have someone help me with my learning gaps, as it is very difficult to know what they are when self-learning. Cheryl introduces cultural emphasis with particular words, for more meaning and depth. As a Caucasian, i find English does not contain the same depth.

I love Cheryl! She is punctual, precise in her instruction, very kind and has a terrific sense of humor. She understands what I am trying to achieve and always keeps that in the forefront of our lessons. She is able to clearly point out my weaknesses and creates exercises for me to overcome my obstacles. Cheryl also cheers me on and praises me when I get something correct. She's a wonderful woman with a delightful spirit. I intend to take lessons from Cheryl until I can speak fluently and even after that just to speak with her! I can't recommend her enough!

I have been taking Spanish with Cheryl for about 9 months. I have learned so much from her. She is a very personable lady and has become my friend as well as my teacher. I can't imagine taking a foreign language from anyone else. She makes it easy to learn and gets you speaking the language right away.
