Thank you Carrie!! It has been a joy to see how your son has improved. He is a wonderful student ' I am so glad that he has gain confidence .
It is a true pleasure to help students succeed. So often confusion about a topic is not the student's fault and all it take is clarification . As a certified Teacher I love making a positive impact in a student's life. I have taught Spanish for so many years I can easily recognize areas where students need extra clarification and help provide tools to improve understanding. Spanish is a wonderful language; learning it can be a joy as well as a lifetime skill .

Barbara has taught Spanish professionally. She knows where students get hung up and confused and is able to teach these concepts. She shares additional handouts where appropriate to teach ideas not well explained in class or in the book. Because m son has a terrible Spanish teacher in high school, she is essentially teaching him the whole subject from scratch. He finally gets what is going on! She
