I had a hard time booking Shamaya because of timing issues but I’m glad I did. She jumped into our first lesson at the exact spot needed (I’m trying to speak to my mother in law, not learn the aphabet). She speaks fast, but goes over everything in such detail and with repetition so by the end of the lesson I was repeating her. I haven’t learned a language before so thought I’d be intimidated, but she’s really easy to talk to. I recommend her to anyone trying to give it a go for the first time.

Former student. She is very talented and the best of teachers. Taught me a lot and taught me very well. She has a lot of knowledge in many areas. Highly recommend her as your teacher for your preferred subject.

Shamaya was very sweet and knowledgeable, she took her time to explain everything to me and made it so easy to understand.
She was ready and had copies of instructions to leave behind for reference.
Will continue with my lessons
