My teacher and I spoke by phone for my first lesson, but her phone had poor reception so I was not able to get the benefit of a full lesson. The second and third lessons were unsuccessful as well I need an alternative so that I can work with another teacher locally. I am not familiar enough with this on line process to be successful with my lessons. I have paid for lessons that i have not received. Please advise.

Rachel was a wonderful tutor! I had an upcoming trip to Paris and she got me ready in only 5 lessons to be able to read a menu, signs and handle basic greetings and key phrases:)

She is good. When I make mistakes, she notes and correct me or prepare for the next time. It's really helpful.

Ms. Rachel was a great Spanish instructor. Her schedule was always very flexible, and she taught me a lot of material in the time allotted. Also, Ms. Rachel always created lesson plans before our lessons so I knew exactly what I would be learning that day. She keeps in touch with her students even after they're done taking lessons. If you're considering taking lessons, you should definitely have Ms. Rachel as your instructor.

Rachel was an excellent instructor and took the time to help me learn Spanish the way I wanted to learn. I was more interested in learning Spanish through reading a Spanish/English Bible, news articles and through song lyrics than just a text book. Text books can be so boring! If you want to learn Spanish in fun and creative ways Rachel would be a great tutor!

Here is a revision on my last review on Racheal. Racheal is a great teacher that can teach all subjects. She taught me on all of my subjects to date and I got good grades on all of them and I will still continue to have Racheal teach me for my school online courses. When you need a teacher to teach you or your family and friends please do not hesitate to have Racheal teach all of you and Racheal is worth every penny that she charges. Racheal is the greatest teacher ever to help me. Rico

Rachel taught a 10 week ESL course at the Omni Chicago Hotel for our employees. She has worked with our property for the last 2 years and has done a wonderful job! Our employees really like her, they have learned and grown, and they have shown more confidence in speaking English at work. Rachel is very easy to work with-she is dedicated and flexible. She always made sure to keep me in the loop with schedules and attendance.

Rachel has been a wonderful French Teacher. The resources and the help she provides makes learning french fun and a joy. I would recommend her to anyone wanting to learn french, she makes it fun and is always there to offer help when needed and never gives correction in a judgmental or harsh way but always gives correction in a clear helpful manner that makes a student want to keep going and try harder.
