Julieta Vasquez has been tutoring my husband and I in Spanish for the past few months. I have nothing but praise for her professionalism, punctuality and preparedness. She customizes our lessons for our individual needs. Not only is she an excellent tutor, she is a very nice and witty woman. I recommend her highly.Jan 19, 2017Verified

My experience was quite different from the five star reviews. I was sent to the wrong location, first by LanguageXpress, then by the teacher which resulted in about an hour of driving around and standing in a parking lot. When we finally got to the library, there was no room reserved so we sat in a public area. When I described my ability to read Camus, Sartre, modern fiction and solidly intermediate grammar skills, I asked for help specificly with conversation with which I am very slow and nervous. She said she was unable to just sit and talk but that we must do lessons from workbooks. I read all the exercises she gave me well, as I knew 90% of that material, but the upshot was she seemed very confused and unwilling to have a conversation -- "what would we talk about?" She was very sweet and motivated, but stuck in a very traditional approach. My conversation subsequently with Julietta, the owner, ended up with her ascribing the problem to my not knowing enough to be taught without doing basic exercises. This is not in keeping with modern learning science which recognizes the value of immersion, minimizes exercises and teaches the way children learn -- by imitation with a lot of gentle correction. Doing basic exercises also does not take advantage of what I already know. I have spent time in Paris and get by just fine, and no one there said look I can't talk to you until you stop making mistakes with the subjunctive.Jul 28, 2018VerifiedLanguageXpress's reply

Maria covered a lot with me and adapted to my level of familiarity with Italian. Well worth the investment.Feb 22, 2018Verified
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?When looking for a language provider make sure they are willing to meet your needs. Most programs focus on writing and reading skills. Giving you very little to no ability when it comes to speaking and listening comprehension. Here at Languagexpress our goals are your goals. We take the time to find out why you are seeking another language and customize our program to give you the support you need. Whether it is in speaking, listening, writing or even reading. We will assess you in these different areas and indicate to you what it will take to reach your desired proficiency.
