Elena has been teaching Spanish to me and my 8 year old daughter for ten months during the term time. We both have an hour per week and Elena has managed to take us from absolute beginners to an intermediate level. Elena is very well organised, bringing course work and homework for us every week. Our lessons typically contain a mixture of speaking as well as reading and writing in Spanish. Elena is very patient with us. She is friendly and outgoing and shows flexibility in how she focuses the lesson for me in the first hour, making it child friendly for my daughter in the second hour. We both really enjoy learning Spanish
