Perfect! Gema is an enthusiastic teacher and clearly lovers what she does. The great thing for me is she is able to tailor her approach to target the areas I need to improve most. I need more practice speaking and listening making my face to face classes with Gema ideal.

Perfect! So far my initial impressions of Gemma are great. She is very passionate about teaching and clearly aims to tailor classes to the needs of the individual. In my initial class we discussed my goals and reasons for learning, and she has kept those things in mind with subsequent classes in order to help me achieve them. My level is slightly more advanced than some students and Gema tailors to this with her approach, so I can imagine that she would also do very well at adapting to the particular needs of more basic students as well. On top of all of that, Gemma is a very friendly and outgoing individual, which helps to create a fun learning environment and establish a positive rapport between us. I look forward to the next class and continuing down this path towards fluency. ¡Saludos!
