    Florencio taught a small conversational Soanish class that I was part of. We made conversation for part of the class, while she corrected our grammar and vocab. Then she would provide us with a structured activity for the rest of the class based on what she thought we needed to work on, such as the subjunctive mood or the difference between por and para. Her command of both Spanish and English is outstanding and she is able to explain things to us in a clear and knowledgable way. Also, her diction and pace of speech is very understandable. She is organized, punctual, and makes learning Soanish enjoyable. I would highly recommend her.

    I’ve met lots of people that are multilingual, but none that have the command of speaking and writing several languages that Yolanda Goss has. I was fortunate enough to meet Yolanda when I was an undergraduate in college. While I was satisfied with passing three terms of French, she was mastering that and more – taking courses in grammar, German, and working on a project where she taught English as a second language. My relationship proved very fortunate when I was recommended for a scholarship to attend a German university, where I would be taking undergraduate level courses at the University of Goettingen. This was a competitive scholarship and at the time, I only had one semester’s worth of German. I needed to learn as much German as I possibly could and I knew that Yolanda could help me. Her plan was that during my senior undergraduate year I would skip straight from the first semester to the third semester. It turned out that I would be accepted in the third semester German class if I could prove mastery of the second semester through a spoken and written exam. Our goal was to pass that exam with Yolanda preparing for the grammar, vocabulary and speech component during the summer break. German is not a straightforward language with its three genders and tricky prepositions, but Yolanda made it seem easy, often illustrating her points with information from other languages. Long story short, I passed my entrance exam to third semester German with flying colors. My accomplishments in qualifying for third-semester German were certainly noticed and I was able to win my scholarship and go overseas. Furthermore, when I arrived at the University of Goettingen I passed the German comprehension exam with high marks on the very first attempt. I credit that achievement to Yolanda. Second semester German deals with future tenses and subjective constructions; it’s beyond introductory phrases and conversational vocabulary. Yolanda helped me build the foundation to put it all in perspective. I’ve always been impressed with Yolanda’s ability to make learning languages seem simple. She has incredible patience and a real love for learning and teaching. I think she’s a great resource for anyone needing an instructor, teacher or tutor and I give her a heartfelt recommendation.
