From Feb 2020 course:
"Hi Anne, I just thought I'd give my feedback regarding how wonderful Sergio has been as a tutor in the Spanish for Travelers class that I took over the last few months in preparation for my trip to Mexico/Peru. While it was unfortunate the classes couldn't continue in person due to Covid19 for the final few sessions, Sergio did amazingly with teaching us through Zoom in an online option which meant nobody missed out on the lesson or knowledge he still had to share. Sergio has been an amazing and encouraging teacher to the whole class and I really enjoyed his positive attitude. I look forward to attending both his and other Selwyn classes in the future. Kind regards, Nancy".
From Feb 2019 course:
"Hello. I have had the pleasure of attending the most amazing course this term with Serge. Every Wednesday has been an absolute delight. He is so well prepared with a range of resources available through all sorts of media: iPhone app, videos at home and in class, quiz, notes, interesting vocab lists, interactive sessions, role play. He is very quick to pick up teaching points as they happen. The best course I've ever been to. Thank you Highly recommend. Sheryn"
