She is very patient and decent. She is very gentle, friendly and kind and I would recommend her to anybody interested in learning Spanish. Elyssa is very hard working and wants her students to be very successful.

I was having a lot of trouble in English all year and it wasn't until I started working with Elyssa that my writing and reading got better. Thanks to her, I ended up getting a 92 on the regents. She is also one of the the sweetest people I've ever met and I can't wait to work together again next year.
