I am writing this note of reference to enthusiastically support Blanca V. Blanca began tutoring our son in January 2012. She was hired to tutor him in Spanish after we were told by his teacher that he could potentially fail if he did not improve his overall performance in the class. The teacher had given up and our son lost all confidence in his ability to succeed in the class. After which time, we recognized we needed a knowledgeable, dedicated, and encouraging person to help turn things around for our son.
Blanca and our son meet twice a week. We are currently approaching the end of February and I am pleased to share that all is well. We have seen a significant improvement in his attitude, homework, and in-class assigments resulting in a noteworthy change in his grade. He has gone from a "D" to a "B" and I credit the success to Blanca's love and passion for teaching Spanish. I think it's safe to say that she is the most passionate, patient, and methodical person I've ever encountered. She encouraged our son from day one. She told him that she had confidence in his ability to do well and she was committed to his success. However, his success was dependent on him putting forth hard work. She is always prepared for their sessions. In addition, she assigns homework, this is to ensure that he masters the assignments. Blanca, is on top of it, reviewing homework, asking questions of the our son and the teacher. Moreover, she is always encourgaging him to go the etra mile, and showing a passion for Spanish that is simply unparalleled.
What's more, she has an uncanny ability to make anyone understand and appreciate Spanish. She is a naturally gifted teacher and leader. Blanca is an excellent tutor. My son has excelled in Spanish under her tutelage. Blanca is thoroughly qualified to tutor Spanish. In making the decsion to hire Blanca is stating that you want the best Spanish Tutor for your child.
I appreciate very much your feedback about my tutoring service. I am glad to hear all of what you kindly posted.
I really love sharing my knowledge and seeing my students succed in Spanish.
Blanca is a great tutor. She has taught my 3 children varying in ages 10-14 for the past 3 years. She comes to my house, to the library or to their father's house and is very accommodating in meeting my schedule. My son recently took his Spanish placement test for High school next year and placed very well. Before Blanca he did not have any tutoring in Spanish. She visits her home country of Colombia often throughout the year and will bring back gifts for the children to show them things from her country. She has taken them on field trips and will conduct the lesson while they are out enjoying themselves. She has gotten to know each child's personality and works well to make them feel motivated and willing to participate. I am proud and impressed when I review homework assignments with them how much they know and love hearing them read in Spanish.
She is very committed to teaching and hope to have her continue to work with the children for many more years!
My daughter was struggling in the middle of the semester, by the end of the semester she had a B.
Blanca is amazing! Extremely patient and instills confidence.
My son, a high school sophomore, could not get past B's in his Spanish III, despite applying disproportional efforts. After several intensive lessons with Blanca last summer, my son's command of Spanish significantly improved. Now he always get B+'s and A's in his Spanish IV class. Blanca quickly determined my son's problem areas and worked with him on fixing them. Being a native speaker, Blanca has great command and feel of the language. She could always find interesting conversation topics that encouraged my son to argue and support the dialog, naturally driving him to express himself in Spanish fluently and confidently. Blanca likes what she is doing, has great attention to detail, and what is very important, inspires the same enthusiasm in the student. We would recommend her without hesitation for anyone who tries to advance their Spanish to a new higher level.
Thanks Tim I feel honor with your words, I feel great about your son's success. He is really dedicated and committed. This the best gift a tutor may get from a student.
I am very pleased to have found Blanca. She is able to engage my 6 year old daughter, who has NO previous Spanish training, for an hour completely in Spanish. Within the first two classes my daughter was responding when Blanca spoke to her only in Spanish. She doesn't short change me either. She speaks to me primarily in Spanish and makes me work. This is when I learn most. She is patient and understanding, easy to contact and just nice.
Blanca has been working with my 5 children, ages 3.5-12, for over two years now. Because of the range in their ages and abilities I originally did not even ask her to teach them all, it just kind of happened naturally. She has an endearing personality and they all love her. Blanca does not leave out my 3.5-year-old, but always includes her in the lesson. My 7-year-old was shy and hesitant when she first started with us, and she was just as excited as I was when he finally started to speak to her. Now he is speaking and reading in Spanish. She is very good at encouraging and motivating my 8-and 10-year-olds to try hard and accept new challenges. She is very talented at meeting each student at their own level, and always asks more of my 12-year-old who is capable of working at a higher level. She is incredibly creative and can always find a way to engage all of them. I think it is rare to find someone, even among highly-trained educators, who has all of her talents. She has mastery of her subject, relates well to different ages and abilities, effortlessly finds creative ways of teaching, and is organized and reliable. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
We have had a great experience with Blanca tutoring our child in Spanish. When we first started working with her, she made an assessment of my child's understanding, reviewed the class material, and then created a plan of how to approach the tutoring sessions. She is dedicated, knowledgeable, and patient and has a gentle way about teaching. We would recommend her highly.
Blanca has been tutoring my daughter and she has improved a great deal. Blanca is a very kind and patient tutor. When my daughter has difficulty with anything she goes over the material until she understands it completely. I would recommend Blanca to anyone who is having difficulty in learning Spanish. She enjoys teaching and really cares about the progress my daughter has made.
I am very pleased with my tutor. Although I am quite the novice in the Spanish language, I was able to understand her and felt quite comfortable with her teaching style. She is well educated and possesses a keen understanding her language and culture. I am looking forward to future lessons with her. Thank you.
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.
