Rachel is incredibly passionate and knowledgeable. When I first arrived in Spain as an expat, everything was unfamiliar, but Rachel has shown me how to move forward and live in a confident way to achieve my dream of speaking Spanish and integrating with the local culture and community. Now, I am incredibly content and settled thanks to Rachel's' coaching and expertise. Thank you so much Rachel.

Rachel loves her work and it shines through! She's organized and plans ahead. She keeps the lessons interesting by diversifying the learning methods and content. And most of all I feel like she really wants me to learn. And I have! I have improved my French tremendously in the months that I have worked with Rachel. Thank you!
