At nearly 40 years old, I was near panic when I learned that, in order to return to school, I'd have to face one of my greatest fears: algebra.
Language Truck has helped me relax around equations by encouraging me to think of them as puzzles. Thanks to her instruction, I'm learning much more quickly than I expected, and actually enjoying solving equations.
_"When J. came home yesterday he said you were the BEST TUTOR EVER. And he did a bunch of other homework yesterday, so we're off to a great start for this two week period."
"Thanks again for class. You are a great teacher. I am actually retaining invaluable info. My minimal Spanish is helping my nursing self esteem."
I've taken computer classes with you at the YWCA in Terra Linda and am very impressed with the ease and style of teaching you provide. I find I am able to learn easily with your clear and comforting approach to teaching; I find it very inspiring.
I've been working with Bridget and she is seriously a pleasure. She makes learning for me a lot easier and fun, and she will try out different styles of learning if one isn't working. I am a slow learner, and Bridget has a lot of patience with her students.
I can tell that she genuinely cares about helping her students, and that's what I appreciate the most about her. If you work with Bridget you will not regret it!
"My 'maestra' Bridget is an incredible teacher--she has a bag full of teaching techniques that work for any level of Spanish speaker, and any learning style. I've taken semi-private lessons from Bridget for several years, and she has introduced me to a range of challenging, interesting, but always fun ways to learn the language, including field trips and cooking classes. Whether in a group setting or one-on-one, Bridget adapts her teaching style to the needs of the individual student. I'm always excited to see where the next lesson is taking me!"
"I grew up speaking Spanish as a child, but needed help with grammar, expanding my vocabulary, and practicing conversational Spanish. Bridget was the perfect choice. She is a dedicated, resourceful and insightful instructor. Bridget doesn't hesitate to interject helpful advice and supply customized study materials to empower her student. My sessions with Bridget provided me with top-notch skills that enabled me to secure employment with an organization seeking a fluent Spanish speaker. She's great!"
Language Truck was a huge turning point in my daughter's relationship to math and homework. After years of struggling with the work load and tears that homework brought into our house, we enlisted the help of Bridget and her team. We saw remarkable improvement after just a few tutoring sessions. Her tutors are amazing and I am not joking when I say "life changing"! Thank you Language Truck.
Working with you and Language Truck helped me approach the bilingual interview process with confidence. Above all, you helped me see that Spanish proficiency is within my reach! I really appreciate your relaxed, context-rich teaching style, and look forward to working with you again!

"Conozco a Bridget Hayes desde hace 6 años. Ella fue instructora de padres y de mi hijo cuando tenía 8 meses de edad. Y desde entonces me di cuenta del talento que tiene para enseñar a niños, adolescentes, jovenes y adultos. Es muy accesible, responsable pero sobre todo, sabe escuchar y observar a sus alumnos para darles una mejor calidad de aprendizaje inmediato. Creo que maestras como Bridget hay pocas, ójala que tengas la oportunidad de comprobarlo tu mismo."
*** Thank you Bridget at Language Truck!!!
We found the help we received for our daughter to be invaluable. I made one quick phone call and Bridget scheduled an appointment for our daughter right away. The setting was friendly and warm and my daughter was thrilled with the tutoring she received for her Spanish class and exam. We are so thrilled that we found Bridget and Language Truck and will be using them exclusively from this point on. Great service, Excellent prices, and very knowledgeable staff. ***
"Bridget was incredibly helpful AND patient. I was hearing about Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn everywhere and wanted to learn how they could work for me. I'm retired and don't have the greatest computer skills (though I can text!). We started with the basics of Facebook--she made it very clear and even gave me a personal assignment. I am eager to start with the rest."
Mainly, I want to thank you for all of the time you spend at the YWCA giving such great instruction on those “confuser” things --as my Dad called his computer!! You can work a room like magic, and touch each of our brains with so much good info!! Kudos to you and THANK YOU!!
