"Very efficient and patient"
- Shilpa, Bloomfield Hills, MI on 12/8/14
We were very fortunate to cross paths with Ms. Francisca back in September. The children liked her after their very first lesson. She was kind and patient with them and was able to tutor in Spanish and French with the same rigor. She was able to improve our freshman's grades from a B to now an A+ by working with his high school teacher. She definitely goes above and beyond our expectations.
"Excellent Tutor! "
- Aisha, West Bloomfield, MI on 4/2/14
Francisca spent an hour with our 7th grader recently, and in the very first lesson, helped her a lot by teaching her concepts about the Spanish language that our daughter says have made her homework and classwork very easy! Thank you, Francisca. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Francisca was very quickly able to evaluate where my daughter needed help and immediately went to work! My daughters grade improved right away. Francisca is great to work with and always willing to help with tests, mid-terms etc. Very good tutor!!!
- Mohammed, Hamtramck, MI on 2/2/14
Francisca is a very good tutor for us because she has been teaching students from IA just like my son. She is very friendly and has given my son many study resources. She is very strict on time but, other than that she is a very good tutor and knows French very well.
"A great French tutor."
- Maha, Farmington, MI on 2/2/14
Francisca is very sincere and dedicated. Within two sessions she cleared up many of the confusions that my daughter had, and gave her many new tools for studying. My daughter enjoys working with her.
Francesca is also very responsive to email, text or phone calls.
"Exceptional Tutor "
- Saadat, West Bloomfield, MI on 1/31/14
Francisca is a wonderful tutor. My son needed lot of help with studies. With help of Francisca he was able to get better grades. She is very knowledgeable and intelligent. She is very flexible and accommodating also. I will recommend Francisca to everyone.
"Wants to see my daughter succeed."
- Kitt, Troy, MI on 5/7/13
Francisca continues to understand the abilities and struggles of someone with learning disabilities, adjusting the work they do with compassion and insight. Finding a tutor like this is just another piece in believing that my child's goal to learn another language will be reached. We are grateful Francisca opens this door for her and moves toward seeing her succeed. Francisca made it clear from the start that she too wants to see her succeed!
It is over a year since we found this tutor. My daughter and she have made a deep connection and are a good team. The bond that they've formed is especially important to my daughter, as she adores the interaction while learning French.
May, 2013 Francisca still amazes with creativity and teaching through a plethora of modalities. A+++
"Spanish tutoring extremely beneficial"
- Jill, Royal Oak, MI on 4/22/13
Francisca has been working with my son for the past few months and his teacher has noticed (and commented on) the improvement in his work. While she only meets with him once per week, the hour long tutoring session has been sufficient to answer my son's questions, practice verb conjugation and direct his thoughts towards independently assessing what the teacher is attempting to get the class to understand. We receive weekly reminders confirming our meeting time and she has also reached out to my son's teacher to make sure she is helping him in the areas the the teacher feels need strengthening.
Tutoring with Francisca has been extremely beneficial.
"Great tutor, very knowledgeable"
- Vera Hehn, Franklin, MI on 4/21/13
Francisca is a great Tutor. I've been attending Spanish classes for around two years before I started to work with Francisca. The two things I like most about her:
1. She never tells you "it's like that, there's no reason why". She has an intrinsic interest to understand languages (she speaks many more than just Spanish) and if she happens not to have an explanation at hand, she will very soon come up with one. Very soon means within five minutes while you translate your next sentence.
2. She's a native speaker. There's nothing that replaces this feature.
- Anne, Pleasant Ridge, MI on 4/20/13
Ms. R. has been very helpful to my son with his third year Spanish class. She is always well prepared and is very easy to communicate with between lessons. She has introduced my son to many resources that have helped him prepare for class and his teacher has noticed the improvement in my son's performance since he began working with Ms. R. I wish we had found her sooner.
"Has increased my grade from B- to A"
- Kim, Rochester, MI on 4/18/13
Francisca has been great to work with. My daughter is a Sophomore in high school and is taking Junior level Spanish. Francisca has been very accommodating of our busy and ever changing schedule, shows up on time and prepared. These are my daughters words about Francisca as a Spanish tutor:
Francisca is a great tutor! She has helped me improve my grade by fully explaining and teaching concepts (especially grammar) in ways that are easier to understand and remember than how our book and my teacher are teaching them. She has helped me find ways to practice and memorize my vocabulary that are easy and efficient. Oh yeah, she is really nice too.
- Sepideh, Grosse Pointe, MI on 2/8/13
My son was struggling with grammar in his AP Spanish class. Francisca helped him bring his grade up to an A. She is a great tutor and I highly recommend her!
- Natasha, West Bloomfield, MI on 8/22/12
Fransisca was an instant hit with my 2 kids, they are 11 and 12. We evaluated one other teacher, but ended our search when we met Fransisca. She is very competent, and a natural speaking Spanish speaker. What I really like is that Fransisca seems very happy teaching and interacting with children. She also has a good sense of humor and you really need that in our home. Also, she is very creative and responds well to my request. This is only our second lesson but I only have good things to say about her tutoring skills and personality. Also, she is prompt, she was always on-time.

I wrote the first review after two lessons, but now my two children have had an entire summer with Fransisca and she is still wonderful! My son says, and I agree, that he and his sister learned more this summer than he did in school. He had 3 semesters of 7th grade Spanish and one semester in the six grade. And yet, he has learned more with Fransisca this summer. It has been a really good summer with Fransisca coming weekly. We even took a Spanish Cooking Class with Fransisca....so delish! They both really look forward to seeing her, she is so much fun and they are sad about not seeing her weekly. We hope that her teaching schedule will allow for some lessons, maybe before big test....she is officially their "Favorite Teacher."
"Had me at Hello"
- Juliana, Grosse Pointe, MI on 7/30/12
Francisca is awesome. She connected with my daughter immediately and has a way of making her Spanish tutoring fun. My daughter looks forward to her visits and says she is the best.
"Francisca the Tutor"
- Bevelyn, Detroit, MI on 7/29/12
When I first met Francisca she was energetic and ready to help me master Spanish. Francisca worked around my schedule being that I was a full time work-a-holic and very good at communicating via by phone and email when it came to any conflictions with our lessons. I enjoyed by experience and would recommend not only WyzAnt but Francisca the go to when it comes to the course.
"Easy to work with"
- Gary, Utica, MI on 7/25/12
I enjoyed working with Francisca R. She took the time to shop with me for materials I needed and always was willing to do a little extra for me in our lessons. Besides being a master linguist, she's a top notch teacher with a proven methodology for aiding a student in learning a new language. I really improved under her guidance.
- Alexandra (Alex), Troy, MI on 7/25/12
Francisca was an excellent Spanish tutor for my daughter. She went out of her way to contact her Spanish teacher to review areas she needed additional help with. She was very flexible with time and worked with her way in to the evening to work around my daughter's dance schedule. Francisca helped her get through a subject she really struggled with. I highly recommend her!!
"Very Good Spanish Teacher"
- Hiren, West Bloomfield, MI on 7/7/12
Very Organized and structured. Knows the material. My son found her very good at the subject and learned quite a few things that he was not able to in school.
"Professional, concise and friendly. She is highly recommended!"
- Frank, Royal Oak, MI on 7/4/12
Francisca R is very professional, concise, well organized, very friendly and helpful. I used Francisca to learn Spanish. I highly recommend her! Thank you!
- LaTrena, Southfield, MI on 6/20/12
Francisca is a wonderful person and tutor. She is extremely dedicated, patient and caring. She really helped my daughter and I would use her services again.
- Patricia, Huntington Woods, MI on 6/19/12
We are a husband and wife couple with different levels of understanding of the Spanish language. Francisca is doing a fantastic job providing us with customized teaching to address our particular situation. We enjoy the individual attention as opposed to the stiffness of a classroom setting. She is also very personable and accommodating.
- Rushil, Troy, MI on 6/18/12
Great teacher who really helped me a lot with Spanish. I was completely new to the language and she was extremely useful. She went above and beyond expectations.
Thank you Mrs. R.!
- Kris, Troy, MI on 6/14/12
My son's grade went up by a letter after starting with Francisca. Uses various sources of information while teaching and it is highly beneficial.
"Very good first session, excellent communication"
- Jeffrey, Sterling Heights, MI on 6/9/12
Francisca worked very well with our daughter. She came into this pretty cold, Katie was lacking in several areas. Francisca was able to quickly center Katie on a particular lesson and work through it quite well. Most importantly Katie responded well to her and looks forward to continuing, perhaps even in other subjects.
"Wonderful Spanish Tutor!"
- Lori Ann, Northville, MI on 6/5/12
Francisca is wonderful. Since he started working with her, our son's understanding has steadily improved, along with his grades, in honor's spanish. She is easy to reach, and very flexible. Francisca suggested several grammar websites for extra practice, and made herself available between tutoring sessions, exchanging worksheets via email. We would highly recommend Francisca.
"Great tutor with great results"
- Oxana, Troy, MI on 5/1/12
After Francesca started tutoring my son, his grade jumped to a B- in just two months. I can tell that Francesca loves teaching and is interested in student success. Also,she's up to date with technology, incorporating use of computer apps in learning (new apps for iPad and iPhone)that are popular with tech savvy kids. She is very involved in the teaching process, following up with the Spanish teacher in school about lessons plans, quizzes and tests. I would recommend Francesca to anyone that is interested in learning Spanish or improving their performance in Spanish class.
