Judith is a wonderful teacher. My goal is to learn Spanish as I would in a college class, but with the luxury of one on one and of going a my own pace. She is more than a "tutor" but has taught Spanish classes to foreigners in public schools in France. I speak French so our common knowledge of this language is one more connection to use to help me learn. I am making progress already after only 3 lessons. In addition to encouraging me to speak Spanish even at my beginner level, she explains concepts and grammar to me in English as well as. This is a style of learning I like - I need to understand the reason for everything. She creates written exercises for me. I am reading little stories already. All this effort and enthusiasm on her part motivates me to work on my own.
In addition to her teaching skills, she is a very intelligent person with a charming personality. Spanish lessons are the most fun I have in my week!
Judith not only helped my son grasp the fundamentals of Spanish, but made him conversant as well. Just a few lessons allowed him to get much better scores in his Spanish classes. Judith is also creative and will select excises for the student to complete, based off of their schoolwork. She is punctual and always shows up a few minutes early. Fluent in both Spanish and English, she is easy to understand and has no trouble communicating.
Judith is great. She is very patient and truly cares about your learning. She goes out of her way and she's always easily accessible. I'm glad I met her.
I have had three tutoring sessions with Judith so far. She has been very helpful in pinpointing the areas that I most need to work on. She is very patient, professional and hard working. She is always prepared with a wealth of knowledge and resources. I would recommend Judith to anyone at any level of Spanish. She is a great teacher!
Judith has been helping me with my Spanish class and I must say, she is truly the best tutor that I have ever worked with. Judith is excellent and I highly recommend her to anyone who needs help with Spanish.
I came to Judith pressed for time, needing some Spanish assistance before I studied abroad in Spain. Judith is an overall amazing tutor with a very effective and useful teaching style. She prepared specialized lessons that were designed for my needs. Not only were her lessons useful, but she knew how to perfectly explain anything I did not understand. I recommend Judith to anyone looking for Spanish help!
Judith's teaching style is fluid and flexible. Instead of the typical rote learning method used by many teachers, she structures each lesson according to my learning needs making it relevant and fun. I have not been disappointed with any of my sessions as a result. More importantly, Judith provides the basics in every session so that a firm foundation is established in regards to learning a new language. Within a few weeks of taking sessions with her, I was able to use some of my acquired language skills in business interactions. Judith is highly personable with a genuine interest in wanting you to succeed.I recommend her highly.
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
