Been taking Spanish lessons via Boliva for a while now, she is an excellent teacher with a lot of patient. Boliva encourages all her students to participate, no matter what your skill level is; she's a very supportive and positive educator, highly recommend learning from her!

I've worked with Bolivia for over six months and have seen great improvement in my ability to understand and speak Spanish. Bolivia has been flexible with my schedule and always comes to class prepared with a variety of handouts. She is an expert at adapting the materials to my specific needs and is a pleasure to work with. I couldn't recommend her enough!

I was looking for a Spanish tutor in anticipation of my trip to Spain. It was very good luck that I found Bolivia. We started with two lessons a week, but I enjoyed the lessons so much, and learned so much from Bolivia, that we soon agreed on three lessons a week. Bolivia completely adapted her teaching methods to my needs. If I had no questions, or wasn't certain what to concentrate on, Bolivia chose what she thought I should learn. I was happy to have homework, and she always knew exactly what I needed to work on. It was a pleasure to have Bolivia as a teacher. I plan to continue lessons with her while I am in Spain, and for sure when I return home. In short, I highly recommend Bolivia as an excellent Spanish teacher, for a pupil of any level (or age!).

Bolivia is a very friendly yet devoted teacher. It was so fun learning with her. She is always very patient, always answers my concerns and questions. I was a beginner in Spanish. But at any levels you are, I think you will improve well with her lessons because it is fun! My experience with Bolivia was great and as a result, I could order food and wine when I travelled through Spain. I want to visit Mexico one day so I'd like to study more. I highly recommend her!

I took a basic Spanish class with Bolivia at Hola Spanish Centre in Vancouver. First, her command of English is strong and hence, she was able to explain many Spanish terms with ease. Secondly, her classes are often fun and interactive not limited to language itself but also some cultural exchange between the students from all the world. I would highly recommend her as a Spanish tutor, especially for English speaking students with zero experience in Spanish.

I took a few Spanish courses at a language school in Vancouver, where I met Bolivia, who was my teacher. I fell more in love with the Spanish language because of the way Bolivia was teaching it, the way she was interacting with us, the students. She’s very knowledgeable and she always made sure that we understood everything before moving on the next topic. I will never forget when one of the students in my class, had a surgery and could not come to a few classes and Bolivia Skyped those few classes, so he won’t miss them. She’s a great teacher

Great teacher for any level

I took an Advanced Spanish class with Bolivia in Vancouver, four days a week, three hours each day. It was an intensive course with plenty of class exercises and coursework to keep you occupied once class ended. Within four weeks, I felt my level of Spanish improve dramatically. What I liked the most about Bolivia was how she was able to accommodate all students in the class, regardless of their level of Spanish. Yes, it was an Advanced course, but students still had different abilities to speak, listen or read in the language. Bolivia was able to structure each class in a way that all of the students could participate and improve. Her classes had a strong foundation in grammar, but she also brought in interesting bits from the "real world," such as songs and newspaper articles. This made the classes more entertaining and was a good reminder of why we all wanted to learn Spanish in the first place. I would highly recommend her as a class teacher or for one-on-one lessons.

Bolivia was a great teacher ...really fun but serious also...on time never canceled ...my Spanish which was nonexistent before the lessons was good after she tutored me. She is well prepared for your lesson and what ever level of Spanish you do or don't have. Cannot recommend her enough.

She prepares her classes well and has a good teaching system that builds up while being fun (my experience is based on her teaching my children). She is also flexible and accommodating. Bolivia is great to work with and I would highly recommend her to anyone interested in learning Spanish!

Bolivia is a superior teacher. She is very organized and totally understands what her students need to learn in Spanish. She has a delightful sense of humor and the hour always flies by very quickly. She is very well educated, reliable and mature. She is everything one needs in a teacher to progress and to really learn a foreign language.
