There are a number of advantages of private lessons with Raquel. First and foremost, Raquel’s individual, one-on-one approach allows her to tailor the course to the specific needs and abilities of each student. Raquel’s students are not slowed down or rushed by the abilities and needs of other classmates. The one-on-one approach also allows for flexible class scheduling to accommodate students’ other plans, like out-of-town travel, etc.
As expected, Raquel clearly knows her subject and is a great teacher. However, what struck me the most was her infinite patience with this linguistically challenged student.
