I have been taking private Spanish language classes with Julissa for one month in Merida, Mexico. Working with Julissa has been just what I needed to re-learn all of the Spanish I have forgotten over the years. I needed to start at the very beginning, but it felt very comfortable.
I have been able to do many other activities in Merida on my vacation and still keep up with my lessons. She is completely flexible with scheduling and I could go as fast or as slow as I needed. Julissa has a wonderful way of motivating me to keep up, study and do the reasonable amount of homework needed to make progress. The method she uses plus the book and materials are extremely easy to follow and understand. I also feel confident working on things alone at home.
I would encourage anyone wanting to learn Spanish to contact Julissa and sign up! You won’t regret it. ¡Feliz Año Nuevo!,

Patience is a virtue.and Julissa has it! We are taking private lessons with Julissa, and after being out of the classroom/homework scene for decades, it was not easy to get back with the hang of being a student. Julissa is immensely patient, always positive, and totally energetic. She listens to us and adapts for our learning styles and speed of comprehension. It is about us and our learning! We have a long way to go, but with Julissa’s help, we will continue to make progress which, as full-time Meridians from the US, is very important to us. We love telling people on the street, “Vivo aqui.” That usually gets a smile and thumbs up from the proud natives of this awesome city.

Learning a new language is hard yet it can be fun depending on the approach. I have tried a number of different approaches: group classes, fill in the blank books, lessons by CD, apps and many others, but with Julissa I have finally hit on the perfect combination. Exercises that give you confidence right away and enough drill and review to make sure things stick.
But the best part is having a happy, patient tutor to guide you, listen for both your successes and your problems, and to make the learning fun. Julissa makes learning a new language fun and attainable by incorporating real life examples into the lessons and through sharing her own stories of how she learned English. She understand what we are going through. I can’t believe how much I have learned in just a few lessons. Oh and did I mention, I am having fun!
“I have been working with Julissa for three months in the Warren Hardy Spanish program. When I arrived in Merida, I didn’t speak any Spanish. My friends and I are amazed at the progress I have made! Julissa is very well prepared and she has tailored the curriculum to my immediate needs while keeping me on track in the program. She is always willing to answer off-topic questions to further my understanding of Spanish. Doy a Julissa una buena recomendacion!”
