Teresa is a gifted teacher. She was adept at tailoring the class to various language experience levels. The class was a lot of fun.

Teresa is just delightful and is a wonderful teacher.

Teresa was great. She made us speak in Spanish most of the time, unless we got totally lost. I really enjoyed her as a teacher.

Discussion in class was great. The instructor is totally fluent in Spanish and English, and she is very knowledgeable in general, so she is always able to explain issues to us that come up. It may be something about Spanish grammar, vocabulary or a translation of something. She always is very clear in both languages. She is inspiring.
