The ORELA Spanish test is one of the most challenging exams.Elizabeth’s first involvement with it was in 2010, when she helped her first ORELA student pass his exam. Since then, Elizabeth has helped others prepare for this exam, and helped them develop skills and confidence for the parts of the exam that proved most challenging for them.
Here is what two students said about their experience with Elizabeth’s help, (linked to her comment on Facebook and thumbtack below)
I thought it would be impossible to pass the ORELA Spanish teaching exam. Everyone I talked to said it took 3 to 5 attempts. I failed my first time and the test seemed even more difficult than ever. That’s when I started do Skype lessons with Elizabeth…twice a week for about 5 weeks. She practiced with me on improving my performance in the speaking section and writing section. She is very encouraging and supportive which helped reduce my nervousness and increased my confidence. She helped me organize my Spanish responses practicing using higher level grammar with increased ease. Those practice sessions increased my speaking score from a 3 to a 7 out of 8 by the next test and I fully passed the test on this 2nd try. Thank you Elizabeth! My Spanish improved so quickly with you and I’m now a certified Spanish teacher! I couldn’t have done it without you! ¡Muchas gracias!
