My first lesson was fascistic, the only problem was it was too short.

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!!
