« Perfect! Sophy has been teaching us Bachata and she has been GREAT! Very knowledgeable. She will ask us what kind of Bachata style we like and she will customize a plan to match what we like. We are taking our class over zoom and that can present challenges but Sophy has made this experience so enjoyable. We are both so happy we chose Sophy as our instructor! »

Perfect! Sophy has been teaching us Bachata and she has been GREAT! Very knowledgeable. She will ask us what kind of Bachata style we like and she will customize a plan to match what we like. We are taking our class over zoom and that can present challenges but Sophy has made this experience so enjoyable. We are both so happy we chose Sophy as our instructor!

I was looking for someone to help teach me how to properly roller skate and I'm so glad I chose Sophy. She is so kind and sweet and teaches very well. She is very encouraging and in the few lessons I had with her I learned so much and became much more confident on my skates. I high recommend her as a roller skating instructor. She is honestly the BEST!!!

I’ve been taking bootcamp classes with Sophie. I think she’s a fantastic teacher. Every session she comes up with new exercises and ideas and I can see that she puts a lot of thought into it. Based on her rich training in roller skating, dance, fitness and Zumba, she has an in depth knowledge of the body, muscle groups and how to integrate different exercises into a full body workout. Sophie is pleasant, easy going and supportive. She’s also very patient. I highly recommend her as a teacher!

I've only had one Spanish lesson with Sophy but it was worthwhile. She is very knowledgeable of the material and makes you comfortable in practicing a new language. Sophy is a tutor who I would recommend to anyone on any level.
