Petra speaks French beautifully (I am particular about instructors having excellent accents) and she does a fantastic job of creating personalized lessons around my specific topics of interest and areas where I need improvement. She is a very knowledgeable, patient teacher and my French has significantly improved in the months since I started lessons. I highly recommend Petra for anyone wishing to learn or improve their French!
Yuko has been giving Japanese lessons to my 14 year old daughter to prepare her for a study abroad program. My daughter loves Yuko's gentle but effective teaching style. She uses a text book to go over basic grammar, reading and writing, as well as teaching conversational skills. She also gives homework assignments to help in-between session studying. Overall we're very pleased with our experience with Yuko, and my daughter is more confident to go to Japan now. Thank you!
She has a very extensive background speaking Spanish since she is from Cadiz, Spain. We would meet for 1 to 3 hours a day and either just have a conversation and she would tell me my shortcoming. Or I would try to bring a short essay about a topic and have her tell me what I did wrong grammatically. She would also do exercises from a book where I had to listen to her and respond back accordingly. She is five stars all the way and I will probably taking a class or two after I return from Mexico.
