In just the few sessions we have had with Maureen I have been so impressed by her patience and cheer while teaching my daughter. My daughter isn't the best oral learner so things have to be repeated more than usual for her. My daughter is aware of that and often will feel bad about herself but not with Maureen. We really do appreciate that. My parents are native Spanish speakers and are very impressed with Maureen's Spanish.
Maureen is very skilled. We spoke in Spanish for the entire hour. That was cool. I didn't think I'd do that well. She patiently told me words I didn't know, gave me correct examples of word order, and gently corrected my many mistakes -- all within the context of a real conversation, where I felt that much was actually discussed. She also gave me a referral for a grammar textbook, which I've ordered from the local bookstore. I am happy and impressed. My brain was tired after a whole hour speaking Spanish, in the best possible way! I am looking forward to my next lesson.
Maureen will be glad to know that my final grade in Spanish III at COD was a C. Given my level of pre-test jitters, the C was most welcome. By the way, I found out that several of my relatives who live in Spain struggled with Spanish and needed tutors even though they heard Spanish all day every day. I guess you helped me overcome a hereditary mental block against Spanish. Thanks so much for your patience.
Great tutor for learning pronunciation. Example was "eye" for hay. Good memory jogger for the three amigos for le gusta and les gustan.
Señora Maureen is an excellent teacher and amazing woman. She has a wealth of knowledge about so many things and incorporates these things into our Spanish lessons. I truly believe with her expertise and my willingness to work hard I'll be fluent by the end of the year. In addition, she's patient, tender in her approach, and has a great sense of humor.
My son has really benefited from Maureen's help. He told me she was a much better teacher even than the one at school. She helped him raise his letter grade one level in the time she was with us. She was also very amenable to days and where we had the sessions. Thanks a bunch Maureen!
Maureen is a wonderful lady with plenty of knowledge about the Spanish language. She is very soft spoken and takes her time not to rush through the information. It's reassuring to know that my son can have someone with her experience and kindness help him through a difficult subject.
Maureen's Spanish lessons have helped my son a lot. She is very proficient in the subject and is able to teach the intricacies of the language. She is also very patient.
Maureen tutored my daughter with my son and I present. We all enjoyed listening to Maureen speak and encourage her to use the Spanish language. It was quite a family event. Thank you Maureen!!! Maureen and my daughter are developing a good Espanol relationship. Keep up the great work Maureen!!! My daughter related that she LIKES having a Spanish tutor! I think she is beginning to understand the power of utilizing a language. Thank you Maureen!
