Makela is really friendly, helpful and patient. Talking to her in Dutch helped me get over my barrier of speaking Dutch out loud. We covered a lot of ground in twenty lessons. She gave me plenty of exercises for practice and went over every assignment and gave detailed feedback. It was a really nice experience learning with her!
