Learning a second language is difficult, but with the right teacher, it can be enjoyable and you will make progress. Zoe is fluent in Spanish, she is a very patient instructor. She has the ability to assess each student and determine the best approach and tailor a learning experience specifically for you, which is important because we all learn differently. Zoe also is able to recommend resources and books to help you practice in between lessons. While she has a lesson plan in mind for each student, she will stop and answer your questions, give you good examples of why certain words are used, and is very flexible with the lessons. If the student feels they need to slow it down and review past material, that is fine, she would prefer that if it helps you build a strong foundation in the language. Many people can read and speak Spanish, but how many can teach it? Zoe can. I highly recommend her to anyone that wants to learn, or improve, their Spanish.
