“I took private, beginner-level English classes with Michelle for several months in Bogotá, Colombia. I enjoyed working with her; she was professional, reliable, and always well-prepared for classes. She used a variety of materials and made lessons interesting. I would highly recommend studying English with her to anyone.”

-Freddy Franco Perilla, English Student, Bogotá, Colombia

“I worked with Michelle in organizing a seminar for English teachers from all over Brazil. She obviously has a broad repertoire of activities that she incorporates into her English teaching. She’s very organized and professional. In addition to being a great teacher, she’s just a great person to be around and you’ll learn so much from being with her.”

– Armen Kassabian, English Teacher & Translator, Cuiabá, Brazil

 “I met Michelle when she was in her early stages of learning Spanish; we’d often get together and practice Spanish, and I was always very impressed by her aptitude and ease at picking up nuances in the target language. She eventually moved to Colombia and we stayed in touch. Whenever I visited, I was amazed by how quickly she had achieved proficiency in Spanish, using phrases that often distinguish native speakers with much ease. Her translations are of the highest quality, and I always have complete trust in her work. At Bilingual Exchange we are honored to have her work with us on occasion. Her quick, perceptive mind and her outgoing and curious personality combine to allow her to achieve high language quality, leading to very precise and accurate translations. I whole-heartedly recommend her to anyone needing translations.”
