Teresa is just delightful and is a wonderful teacher.
I really enjoyed how approachable the instructor is, she could take on the most basic of questions and still feel like she was supporting your journey in the language. I say this because it's easy for an advanced person to come off condescending when responding to basic questions.
I loved how hands on she makes the material. Very engaging. -- Brittany Broyles
I enjoyed the opportunity to practice Spanish with other learners, and the frequent opportunities to practice speaking in class. I found instructions around conjugating verbs very helpful (I had tried learning Spanish via apps like duolingo, but they aren't set up well to teach grammar mechanics). -- Laura Horan
The conversations with my classmates provided excellent practice and I appreciated the teacher stepping in to help when needed. --Autumn
She's a very welcoming teacher and made it safe to use our bad Spanish. --Suzanne
Profesora Teresa is such a wonderful teacher, very caring and clearly enjoys what she does. I loved the reading materials and homework, which has helped my knowledge of Spanish language improve. I liked that she had us interact with others, which was fun. --Mickey
