Rachel was so patient with me! She was able to find the right pace that wouldn't be too much for a stay at home mother, and yet was still able to give enough homework and tests to push me to get better at Spanish. She is very well educated and fluent, that she could answer any question I have. Her knowledge of Spanish grammar really helped me better understand sentence structure. I would highly recommend Rachel.
