About this pro
I had one on one lessons during my time in the US. She had previously lived in France for a long time so was very knowledgeable on how to actually speak French rather than just what the text book says. I learnt a lot fast . I was reading long passages within a few weeks with good understanding and started speaking from day one. Although I found it difficult to speak and create my own sentences this forced you to begin to learn properly. I would highly recommend this tutorNov 11, 2017
Leigh is an outstanding Spanish instructor. She tailored her lessons to my needs (beginner business Spanish) , and her knowledge of the language, history, and culture of Spain and other Hispanic countries was invaluable. I particularly appreciated her flexibility with my busy schedule. I took lessons with Leigh for almost two years, and thanks to her creative and well-prepared lesson plans (and her endless patience), I am proficient in Spanish. I thoroughly recommend her.Sep 14, 2017
