"I visited Costa Rica four years ago to travel and learn spanish and at that time I was fortunate enough to be taught by Ivette. I found Ivette's friendly but professional manner of teaching an excellent way to learn spanish which was why I had no hesitation in approaching Ivette again to help me to refresh my spanish during my recent visit."

When we first moved to Potrero, I didn't speak but a few words of Spanish and wanted to find a good tutor. A friend recommended Ivette and I've been studying with her over 3 ½ years now. She started me on a very elementary level since I was a rank beginner; now I am carrying on conversations and learning more all the time. Ivette is patient and doesn't mind it when I say, “Can we please review this one more time?” after we've already reviewed something many times before! I've been in classes both private and group and both situations have been excellent. If you are interested in a group lesson, Ivette will find someone who is close to your same level so you can learn together. Because we live in Potrero only half time, I was concerned that I would regress during the time I was away. I was Ivette's first foray into SKYPE! It has been a wonderful experience. I get to speak Spanish with Ivette as often as I want for a couple of hours, she's gives me a project/homework, and we schedule the next lesson that is convenient for my busy calendar when I am in the States. Ivette has become more than a tutor; she is my good friend. I know you will love learning Spanish with her!

"During my vacation this year I took lessons with Mrs. Ivette Gomez Mora. I was very pleased with her teaching method. She explains everything very thoroughly and has a lot of written material to help in doing homework. I learned a lot within a short time and can recommend this highly qualified teacher to everyone."

"Ivette is a great teacher -- very kind, good-natured and very skilled. Her program is intuitive and easy... I can't believe how much Spanish I learned in just two weeks! I plan to come back to continue studying with Ivette in beautiful Potrero."

“Ivette is an efficient, creative, and organized teacher. Her years of experience in education - both as a language teacher to foreigners, as well as at a regular high school – are evident when you take one of her private lessons. She knows her material in and out and has an ability to take complex concepts and break them down in a way that is interesting and easy to understand. I lived for three years in Playa Potrero and during that time, I took several series of classes with Ivette. Our sessions would include conversation, worksheets, mini-quizzes and lectures covering sentence structure, verb conjugation, and vocabulary. Her prices are competitive and you get a lot of bang for your buck. Her sessions are catered to your specific needs, depending on what you want to work on, and she provides a beautiful setting to do them in. Her home is surrounded by trees and birds and she always offers something cool to drink. She is patient and speaks clearly. Whenever I spoke with Ivette, whether in a class or talking to her casually around town, I would feel my Spanish improving and I always surprised myself. I would find myself understanding huge blocks of conversation and words I didn’t think I knew. She just has that way about her. Having also taken classes at the local language school, I would say I learned a lot more with Ivette, for a lot less money. On a final note, beyond being a talented and experienced educator, she is a wonderful woman. I got to know Ivette personally during my time in Costa Rica and I can say without hesitation she is kind, thoughtful and truly cares about her students. Your Spanish will get better working with Ivette. I would recommend her highly.”

"My kids have had Spanish in the U.S. for years, but they hated it. They had very little chance to practice speaking in their regular classes. We shared a beach home in playa Langosta with our friends family and she arranged Spanish lessons every day. My kids worked in a small group with Ivette. They loved it! It was very different to be able to have all the individual attention and have some one individually check their pronunciation. They looked forward Ivette coming every day."

"Ivette is an excellent teacher. My children ages, 9-16, studied with her last summer and made incredible progress while having fun. My family moved to Costa Rica a year and a half ago and so gaining confidence in the language was and is a priority for us. We combined a week of Spanish classes with Ivette with surf lessons and it proved to be the perfect situation. Ivette was reliable and always ready to challenge and work with the kids. I highly recommend Ivette to provide any type of assistance while you are in Costa Rica! "

"My family and I live here and it is most important to us to learn Spanish and communicate with our friends and neighbors. I enjoy so much my classes with Ivette...it is beautiful and relaxing at her home. Ivette knows how to make everything so clear and not only teaches the language but ALSO HOW to learn! She speaks so clearly in Spanish and then in English that you don't even realize you are picking up words. She shows you little exercises to help you remember words and how to associate them. I can ask her questions that you don't find in any books...cultural differences...how to pronounce words correctly and use them in the correct situation. She makes it very easy! She is VERY organized and helps you be as well...with printed handouts and folder for your notes. And most of all she makes me excited about learning and anxious to use what I have learned. I highly recommend Ivette and I say "Don't wait! Do it Now!"
