What Our Students Say About Our Spanish Tutors in San Francisco Bay Area


Key Benefit SpanishBlackBelt ''She tailored the lessons specifically to my needs.'' Dec 14 2016
Key Benefit SpanishBlackBelt ''I have a problem with question 15 "rate this tutor in comparison to other Spanish tutors you have / have had in the past" because I have had several very good tutors, so I find it doing them a disservice to compare them to each other when I was overall very happy with them. Alice was good at providing colloquial phrasing recommendations to make my speech sound more authentic/conversational. '' May 17 2016
Key Benefit SpanishBlackBelt ''One thing very helpful for me was her ability to converse at a level that I could understand and actively participate. She used words and concepts from the curriculum, and challenged me the right amount so that I felt like Im getting it, gained confidence, and became more encouraged. She corrected my errors, but constructively and positively. She blended the course material with cultural experiences which kept it lively and relevant. It was clear that she enjoys teaching and takes an interest in her students.'' Apr 21 2016
Key Benefit SpanishBlackBelt ''She was very flexible and excellent at communicating when the sessions needed to be changed because of the weather. She was also very clear in her Spanish speaking, and explanations. She was friendly and open and we did a lot of talking. '' Mar 16 2016
