''Always corrected my pronunciation, which is helpful. Give me spellings of ne vocabulary. She had good resources and new study methods that really worked for me.''
''She explained things well and reviewed concepts that were hard to understand.''
''Excellent use of role playing exercises in Spanish to force students to use improvisation to improve conversational abilities. I also liked that we used the course materials for the most part, but the instructor was flexible and understood when it made sense to do something different.''
''Taylored it to our particular needs, encouraged us to watch/listen to spanish outside of class for leisure.''
''I really have enjoyed Patricia's energy and organization during the class. We go through the assigned topics, but there is room to talk and speak loosely too, which I like.''
''She really tailored the classes to my goal of continued speaking on my part''
''Spoke in Spanish!''
''Included everyday and asked us to practice in everyday life, was very perceptive and spent time on our questions. Speaking in good pace, not so fast.''
''She took the time to explain the concepts and ensured we practiced.''
''Patricia Jaramillo was exceptionally receptive to my needs as a student. She would adapt to both the existing curriculum and the personalities of her students to make conversation engaging. The classes never felt slow or repetitive, but her high expectations helped me achieve a lot of progress. ''
