Alicia was awesome! My son said to me last night after she left "Mom, she is really good at helping me understand Spanish!". I was impressed at how she was able to explain things to my son in a way that made it easier for him to understand the grammar. She was real good about pointing out the positive things that my son knew in Spanish, which I believe will make him more confident with his Spanish. My son is looking forward to working with her again on Sunday!

"Engaging and Patient Teacher"
Yong from Austin, TX on 5/15/14
I enjoyed the lesson as Alicia is very patient and answered all my questions. She is knowledgeable of many languages and it's very interesting to hear her explaining all the subtle differences and similarities between various languages. By asking me to read the text back to her in Spanish, she really helps me appreciate the different intonations of the language. Time passes quickly as she remains very engaging throughout the lesson.
"Very Helpful, Quick response!"

"Remarkable ESL Tutor Who Uses Great Teaching Techniques"
Shirley from Austin, TX on 2/5/14
Alicia has been tutoring ESL to my 12 year old niece for a few weeks now, and she's doing a remarkable work with her. Alicia is very patient with kids. She speaks to my niece in a way that she would understand. She utilizes songs, videos, and looks for ways to keep her interested. My niece loves her Wednesdays with Alicia.
I like that Alicia not only tutors for 2 hours she also gives uses additional material such as internet links, phone applications, games, books, listening material, etc, in order to continue the learning curve.

Thanks A LOT, Shirley. It's been such a pleasure. Hopefully, this will be the beginning of a great friendship.
"Study with Alicia!"
Michael from Austin, TX on 1/27/14
I took pre test today. After the test we reviewed it and she asked me that do I know Tag questions. I knew some but I wasn't sure do I know all of them. Alicia said that she will send me Tag questions note or something. I saw it just now and it is very useful. Also she sent me handouts last night and they are very good too. She put questions at the end of it so I can practice too. Studying with Alicia is very good, because she is telling me what I should study next and giving me some tools. I feel that I am learning fast! Thank you Alicia!

Thanks A LOT. I really enjoy our time together. You are a great student, also. Your progress so far demonstrates that you'll be succeeding in no time at all.
"Patient and caring"
Jamillah from Austin, TX on 1/18/14
Alicia was very patient and caring. I am a beginning learner and I am on a mission to perfect my technique in "conversational" Spanish. Alicia sits with you and obtains your goals so that she may assess and better assist your needs. Additionally, we went through various exercises and verbal repetitions which really helped me with retaining the information. I look forward to our future lessons and in particular writing exercises as this best fits my learning style.

I'm always happy before, during, and after I meet with you. You are a quick learner and such a great person to be with and teach.
Enid from Austin, TX on 10/14/13
Alicia is a great tutor! She's very easy to reach and never late! She is very well at teaching and explaining everything I need to work on for the SAT test I'll be taking. She's been really helpful from the first lesson I had with her. I greatly recommend her!
With her help I really hope I get a great score on the test because she is very helpful!

"Great tutor, great experience!"
Miroslav from Austin, TX on 8/29/13
I really enjoy lessons with Alicia. I am still at the beginning of my "English" journey, but she is very patient with me. We have a lot of fun but in the same time she's able to explain new vocabulary or grammar to me. And on top of that, she is paying attention to my pronunciation as well. When I first met her I was surprised- in a good way - how much she knows about Slovakia - my home country. The main reason why I decided to take the lessons was to speak and practice English as much as possible, and this is exactly what I am getting. Thank you Alicia!

Thanks A LOT for the feedback. It is a pleasure to be your tutor.
Mary Evans from Austin, TX on 8/25/13
Alicia was very helpful to me right before my Spanish final which included the subjunctive and conditional tenses. She was very knowledgeable and gave me tons of papers with the verb tenses organized into lists w/ conjugations etc. She also offered to answer any questions over email or Skype after our session.

Muchisimas gracias, Mary. Buena suerte.
