"Carolina is an excellent teacher. She is always on time for lessons and responds fast to queries. If you have difficulty speaking she will adapt to your level and always make the conversation smooth. I was pleased that she chose lesson materials that corresponded to my interests and pointed out the areas I needed to work on in a kind but firm manner. I definitely recommend."KR, Berlin
