"A great teacher"
Jennifer from Fremont, CA on 6/18/13
Fabia is an experienced tutor; she is able to pinpoint my problems in writing quickly through my speaking and writing samples. During the process of working with her, I always felt comfortable and relaxed, since she usually provided some positive comments before we waded through all my problems. Her explanation on how to differ and use certain words were very clear and impressive. She often clarified confusing word uses with interesting examples. She is a great teacher.
"Pick Fabia for your student!"
Alice from San Carlos, CA on 1/17/14
My daughter and I both liked and valued Fabia as a teacher and mentor!
We needed tutoring in French, for school, and Italian for a study abroad program my daughter was going on; Fabia was the perfect tutor to guide my daughter. She also helped with advise on gifts for the host family and behavior.
The best part, in my humble opinion, was that Fabia could meet via Skype! I didn't have to drive my daughter to a secession, we were on vacation and didn't have to miss a session, it was great!
Thank you Fabia.

"Great tutor and lovely person."
Julie from San Francisco, CA on 7/9/13
I adored meeting with Fabia! We met twice a week for the past 3 months. First of all, she is a very qualified tutor. I chose her especially because of her phonetics qualifications. She masters the English language like nobody else and is able to give you an explanation about everything (grammar rules/word roots) in a very clear and simple way. Even though I studied English for many years at school, I have the feeling that Fabia have helped me much more in a few months. She is very patient and open. She would always bring articles or list of words that we could work on together, but was also completely flexible if I needed to work on something special. The last but not the least, she is a lovely and very dynamic person and she greeted me with a beautiful smile at every lesson! I already miss her and definitely recommend her.
"What a great tutor Fabia is!"
SALLY from El Cerrito, CA on 3/30/13
Fabia is a great tutor! She speaks several languages, and I am really psyched about learning Spanish from her. She gave me some fun home work assignments (watching Water for Chocolate and Biutiful), and she is willing to work with my friend, who also wants to go to Spanish Immersion school in Mexico. Fabia's pace is just perfect, and I gained a ton of knowledge in our first lesson. I highly recommend Fabia!
After quite a few lessons with Fabia, I also highly recommend her for her ability to teach computer skills. She has helped me improve my skills greatly. She is extremely knowledgeable about computers and computer skills. She goes at just the right pace and repeats stuff often enough to make it easy to learn. You will be glad you hired her!
"Very nice, very patient , and very passionate."
Mia from San Leandro, CA on 12/31/12
Fabia is a gem! She's is very thorough and even incorporates very detailed grammar into the lesson. Her personality is very friendly yet professional. She's very open to questions and has the answer for you right away. I am very pleased that out of nearly 62,000 tutors, I was blessed with Fabia. Thank you.
"A Fun & Fluent Collaborator!"
Bob from Sacramento, CA on 10/3/12
Fabia listens raptly. She corrects gently. And when a morsel of French is spoken approximately, zut!, she beams like a proud maman! Fabia unmangled my accent, introduced me to très cool French singers like Georges Brassens and Maxime le Forestier, and, overall, deepened my love and appreciation for French literature. One of her many strengths is her abiding belief that language is culture. It's the best approach.
"All around amazing tutor!! "
Sophie from Shingle Springs, CA on 7/18/12
Fabia is not only an amazing tutor but she's also fun. Every lesson I have had with her has been informative and interesting. The time flies when you are with Fabia! She is patient and kind and you always feel comfortable. She answers all your questions and makes sure that you actually understand what she's teaching. I have seen huge improvements in my French since starting tutoring with Fabia and I have only had three lessons so far. If French is what you need help with then I highly recommend Fabia. Exceptional tutoring for a great price!
Maria from San Francisco, CA on 7/7/12
I had some problems with French. Thanks to Fabia these problems are solved little by little. She sees what you need, where to put the most attention for understanding the language. Lessons are not boring but interesting and useful. I am very happy to have Fabia as my tutor.
"Excellent writing tutor"

Fabia has helped me with three college level essay writing assignments. She provided excellent input and feedback for my drafts. She has many ideas and strong oral and written communication skills. Her suggestions have helped me improve my writing skills. She is prompt, flexible and quickly reviews drafts in a timely manner. I learned a great deal from discussions with her, she is an excellent tutor, very insightful and does a great job enhancing and improving my words to make the essay sound better.
