Spanish with Elizabeth
I thought it would be impossible to pass the ORELA Spanish teaching exam. Everyone I talked to said it took 3 to 5 attempts. I failed my first time and the test seemed even more difficult than ever. That's when I started do Skype lessons with Elizabeth...twice a week for about 5 weeks. She practiced with me on improving my performance in the speaking section and writing section. She is very encouraging and supportive which helped reduce my nervousness and increased my confidence. She helped me organize my Spanish responses practicing using higher level grammar with increased ease. Those practice sessions increased my speaking score from a 3 to a 7 out of 8 by the next test and I fully passed the test on this 2nd try. Thank you Elizabeth! My Spanish improved so quickly with you and I'm now a certified Spanish teacher! I couldn't have done it without you! ¡Muchas gracias!Jul 31, 2015
Elizabeth is very friendly and very helpful. She communicated with me quickly and efficiently prior to registering for her class. I am excited to start working with her.Jun 19, 2015Verified
