"I spent a semester struggling with elementary Spanish, only to find myself floundering before the final exam. I then turned to Lake Norman Language Academy for some last minute tutoring help. I’ve learned more in two days of tutoring than I had learned in the entire semester in college. Truly, this is the most beneficial instruction I’ve had in a foreign language."

"My 14 year old son struggled with Spanish from the beginning of the school year and seemed to have given up on ever doing well in the subject. I turned to Senora Pansini in a last ditch effort to get him on the right track. The results have been amazing! As of Alec’s most recent progress report, he has a 96% overall average in Spanish, a fifty point increase from 6 weeks ago.
Abigayl’s approach to learning has helped Alec to go into his class with a better understanding of what is going on and what is expected from him. She has helped build his confidence where before he had none in this subject.
This has been a great experience and I will definitely use Lake Norman Language Academy as a resource for both of my children in the future. Thank you so much! "

"Your tutoring classes have certainly been a blessing! My son missed the first year of middle school Spanish and had a hard time catching up to the other students the following year. After only 2 hours of tutoring, we started to see his self-confidence rise. After 2 tutoring sessions my son said, “I have learned more in these two tutoring sessions, than I have learned the entire school year.” Thank you so much for increasing his self-confidence and for making the language fun, easy and accessible."

"HIGHLY RECOMMEND. Our son is a 9th grade IB student. When he first started, he was really struggling and ready to give up. He was barely getting by when we discovered Lake Norman Language Academy. Abigayl was able to quickly determine Eddie's language capabilities and develop a plan of action to build on the basics while still getting him through the higher level expectations of his 8th and 9th grade classes. She gave him the courage to believe that he could learn and excel in Spanish. She works with him to better understand his learning style and adapted her lesson plan to better meet his needs. He is now able to spell, read, and speak Spanish with greater ease. Eddie was so proud of his last report card --- all of the hard work is paying off!! Thank you so much for the time, energy and most importantly love that you show Eddie …. You are making a difference in his life!!"

"Our son, Zachariah, entered the 6th grade at Mt. Mourne IB this year and asked to attend the Lake Norman Language Academy this past summer so he could get a jump start on his Spanish. We could not work our schedule to fit into one of the summer camps, but Ms. Pansini offered the option of one-on-one classes. We were not sure that one-on-one classes would hold Zachariah’s interest, but we were very wrong……he looked forward to each class and even asked to take two additional classes so he could continue to learn new things. Zachariah did wonderfully – he learned so much in his short time with Ms. Pansini and entered 6th grade Spanish class a very confident young man. He even introduced himself to the Spanish Teacher at 6th Grade Orientation using the Spanish he had learned from Ms. Pansini.
We would highly recommend Ms. Pansini and her school, the Lake Norman Language School, she is an excellent and patient teacher who transforms her love of her first language into the love for a 2nd language, Spanish, for those that she teaches."

" Our Spanish classes were amazing, from age 7-47, we had a fun learning experience. Abigail keeps it simple and interesting as well as communication going. My daughter excelled in her Spanish class with the boost she got in 3 months".

" Lake Noman Language Academy was exactly what helped my daughter get an A in Spanish III. The program was geared specifically to the course in high school, and the time frame of lessons worked out perfect with my daughter. She loved the one on one classes and could move as fast or slow as needed. I would recommend Lake Norman Language Academy to anyone learning Spanish."
