"Hi Raquel, Gabi´s finished school now, she did very well especially, in Spanish, she is now studying at UTS a double degree.. I am happy to let people doing Spanish at Redlands know that you are available"

- Shelley Richardson: Gaby Richardson, Spanish student 2015

You are one of the best tutors I have had.  You helped me learn basic Spanish for travelling purposes.  The material given during the lessons was very helpful and made it easier to learn the language.  You are very patient, reliable and flexible.  It was lovely learning from you." 

- Lily Wilkinson, Spanish student 2015

"I took French lessons for travelling purposes with Raquel. I learnt heaps: how to say what food I want for breakfast, have a conversation beyond or other than introductions, asking for menus and directions.Her lessons inspired me to continue learning French and were fun. I hope I can use French in Switzerland and France this winter."

– Diego Ruiz, ACU student - program French for travelling, June 2014


"I took these French classes as part of one the programs offered at my uni as an extra academic skill class. Small class made it easier to learn. It was very interactive, no one missed out. I will go to Europe in July, will travel lots in Europe and will definitely use these skills in French for travelling. The class notes were fantastic."-Elly Archer, ACU student - program French for travelling, May 2014

"Raquel is an excellent tutor, helping me to prepare for an upcoming trip overseas. She is very knowledgeable and patient and it was a pleasure learning from her. Would definitely recommend using her."
- Christopher Stevenson, student of Spanish, May 2014

"I did beginners Spanish during the hsc and was really struggling with verb conjugations and some speaking. After considering tutoring I found Raquel on this site. My speaking, writing, reading listening in Spanish greatly improved and was reflected in my excellent exam marks. Raquel helped me a lot with listening by practising with online audio files and we had plenty of conversations in Spanish which really built my confidence in speaking, as well as extending my vocabulary. Although I have finished school now I would highly recommend Raquel to anyone who is considering language tutoring and I know I will contact her if I choose to continue my language studies at university."
- Madeleine Stevens, student of Spanish for HSC at Freshwater School, December 2013


"Raquel is an expert at what she does, as an instructor she is highly adaptable to any level of learning as well as adapting a variety of creative approaches to help her students comprehend difficult concepts, all the while maintaining patience and composure and putting her students at ease. I couldn’t recommend Raquel any higher as an instructor."

- Louchlin Dyer, Storyboard artist at Buchanan Group - French student  2013

"I can not say how wonderful Raquel is. She is reliable, flexible and bottom line a great teacher. I would not hesitate to highly recommend her to anyone. A fab spanish tutor! regards, Mia."
- Mia Grimaldi, student of Spanish, June 2013


"I have been learning Spanish with Raquel for about four months and have picked up a lot during this time. She is very patient and friendly, and makes you feel at ease. I am no longer fearful of trying out my Spanish in conversation, and found from the very first lesson I was speaking more Spanish than I thought I knew. I have also picked up a lot of grammar along with way, sometimes without even realising it. Raquel tailored the lessons to my needs and interests and we found a pace that I was comfortable with. The lessons have always been enjoyable and the hour flies by in no time at all. I would highly recommend Raquel to anyone looking for a Spanish tutor."-Victoria Rands, student of Spanish, June 2012

"I've been doing lessons in spanish with Raquel for about a year and I have learnt a lot during that time. I'm always impressed with the effort that she goes to in terms of the written exercises and lessons she brings and the homework that she gives me. Given that I am a beginner I think she's very patient. She seems to enjoy doing the lessons, as do I, and we have a good laugh at times. Overall she is exactly what I was looking for when I began searching for a tutor about a year ago."- Carl Chessman, student of Spanish, February 2012

"She is always organised and patient."
- Ching Man Cheng, student of French, February 2012

"Raquel is an excellent tutor - she has a very thorough knowledge of languages, how they work, and how best to teach them to people with different learning styles. She is patient, friendly, approachable, and professional, which makes the learning environment comfortable.  I would have no hesitations in recommending Raquel to anyone wishing to study a second language."
