I have been having weekly Spanish lessons from Spanish55 for almost 2 months now. I greatly appreciate the one on one lessons with my Spanish coach and how each week we are able to take on new subjects. What I have been learning will help me both in my work life and social life. I highly recommend giving Spanish55 a try!

My experience learning English with Lynne is the best I've ever had. After many years of studying in schools in México, I felt that I was not good for English. However, with Lynne I learned a lot in a short time, her style is great because she teaches you in a fun way and with everyday things that are really useful . She is a committed teacher who strives in making their students learn and improve their English skills. She is also an intelligent and educated person, with great sense of humor and enjoys meeting people, their culture and way of life, which makes each class a mutual learning exchange. If you are looking for a good English teacher, Lynne Feldman is the best !!! Erika P.

Lynne is just the kind of tutor I was looking for. Because she speaks her well-educated Spanish at a pace I can understand, I am able to converse with her in Spanish in a way that enables her to pick up on my errors. She made note of these, corrected them, and sent me a follow-up list of them via e-mail which is a great way of reinforcing the learning experience. It is primarily conversational Spanish that I want to improve upon. I have tried various ways of improving my Spanish over many years, and working with Lynne was the most successful and satisfying for me. Lynne was very accommodating about meeting at a place and time that was very convenient for me.

Lynne is great! I was unsure about trying yet another Spanish tutor, but it was necessary as my girls were not doing well with the never ending train of substitute teachers the school was giving them for their class. Lynne brought it all together so that it made sense and my girls could finally get some continuity. I don't know what we would have done with out her. In just a couple of weeks they were on track and their grades were back up where they should have been. Lynne didn't even need to know what the class was doing, she spoke with my girls and started to build on what they knew. It worked and we are very happy.

I have been taking classes at Pura Buena Onda for about four months now, and I am so happy I found Carolina and her wonderful classes! It has been amazing for me, in terms of improving the Spanish skills I had, learning more (much more), and getting that all-important chance to practice! Caro is a wonderful instructor who knows both how to offer a really great lesson and to facilitate wonderful conversation. She leads, encourages, and corrects us with sensitivity and understanding--and a great sense of humor--so that we feel more at ease with the language and truly improve. And it is always so much fun--she uses entertaining games and conversation starters that make the class something truly to look forward to! I love to go to class, and am always amazed at how the time flies by. Wonderful atmosphere, fun people and a great instructor--this is an amazing way to improve your Spanish!

I've been a student at PBO for over 3 years and my Spanish has improved dramatically! Caro is GREAT and she knows what she's doing. She is creative, smart, fun, and has managed to attract great students who are enjoyable to be with in class. She uses the perfect combination of instruction, coaching and guided conversation. Grammar lessons? Vocabulary? Verb conjugation? Yes, yes and yes. But there are also games, stories, music, show-and-tell, jokes, idioms, word usages, and lots of conversation - structured and informal. One of the aspects I appreciate most about class is the opportunity to about the cultural significance of language and important country-to-country differences. Caro is a delightful person and I highly recommend taking a class from her if you're looking for a Spanish-learning environment that is productive and focused, but also fun and supportive.

PURA BUENA ONDA is a fantastic place to learn Spanish. Caro, the owner, provides a comfortable, nurturing, fun and stimulating learning environment. Caro is an excellent teacher. She also runs her school with wonderful business and organizational skills. In class, the emphasis is on conversation. However, the classes are structured to enhance learning and participation. Not only that, you continue learning in between classes with Caro's 'conversation of the day' and mini lessons which appear on the school's Facebook page. Pura Buena Onda is not only a great school. It's also a community. I love going to class. Peggy

She is great! I was in need of a SAT english tutor in order to compete for a spot at the United States Military Academy at West Point. She showed up on time and if needed would stay extra to make sure I actually improved. I was extremely confident heading into my test and was accepted into West Point. I highly recommend her to anyone in need of any help with english. In addition, she helped me with writing a letter to West Point on why I want to attend. She is great!!!

Vanessa has been tutoring me for about two months, and I have never learned so much in such a short period. She has many tips and tricks to help me remember all of the rules of the Spanish language. She is a very kind and energetic person who is always willing to change her schedule to fit your own. I would strongly recommend Vanessa to anybody who needs help!

I've been having tutoring sessions with Elena for the last couple of weeks now and I can already see an improvement in my ability to understand and speak Spanish. She's a highly knowledgeable and patient tutor, and even when I make a mistake, she'll explain what to say and then connect it back to what we're already talking about. In that way, Elena is also really thorough, and makes sure that I understand a concept before moving on to something new. I also found her teaching style to be unique and really helpful, in that we'll actually have a conversation in Spanish, which would lead to a lesson or how to fix this or that. Although somewhat unorthodox, I found it extremely helpful, since I not only learn grammar, or verb conjugation, but I actually get to practice what I learned in real conversation. Since I've always been one to focus on the real applications of things, using real conversation is really helpful and makes the lessons all the more engaging and exciting. The pacing of lessons is also really nice and I'm often surprised by how much we actually cover in an hour. She´s the best Spanish tutor I've ever had and I'd highly recommend her to anyone trying to learn or become better at Spanish.

Elena is a very patient teacher and explains Spanish grammar at great length with examples. She provides excellent lessons which we do together on Skype. She is always on time with our sessions and flexible so she can change the class days if I am busy and can't meet.

Over the last ten years I have had three different Spanish teachers but Sara is by far the best. She is extremely punctual and the weekly lesson is always something I look forward to. Unlike my other teachers, she lets me do most of the speaking even though I stumble through the conversation which must be very exasperating for her, but this is the only way to make progress!

Sara has worked with our two girls (ages 8 and 6) for the past two years. Sara is completely professional, always punctual, has very high standards and still makes the learning enjoyable for our children. We have noticed concrete progress in their ability to speak and understand Spanish. We give Sara our absolutely highest recommendation.

My 6 and 9 year old daughters both say that Sara is awesome! She is very creative in her lessons, and plays games in Spanish inside and outside, which keeps it fun. Both girls are making great progress in Spanish. We highly recommend her.

About

I have lived and taught English abroad in Costa Rica and Brazil, as well as traveled throughout Europe and South America. I am fluent in Spanish and Portuguese. For the past couple years, I have been teaching kids classes (as well as tutoring adults) anything from creative writing to art, Spanish and geography. I am a very enthusiastic and creative person, which helps me bring very unique and fun activities to class. I always accommodate my lessons based on the student's level and specific need or interest just like for example, if you need to learn English for business or work or perhaps you need to learn some conversational Spanish for traveling. Everyone is unique so I like to make all of my lessons unique as well. No matter what, we always have a good time!
