Student Testimonials

Theresa 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.

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 loved how hands on she makes the material. Very engaging. 

She's a very welcoming teacher and made it safe to use our bad Spanish.

Profesora Teresa is such a wonderful teacher, very caring and clearly enjoys what she does.
