She is a Good teacher
Aviles is a great person overall but her teaching methods are meant for extremely fast learners and in some cases native speakers. She has high expectations of all of her students but at points they seem unrealistic. If you take Aileen good luck!!!
I tried but she just doesn't speak my language.
Aileen certainly knows the topic material, but her instruction methods and tests leave much to be desired for students who aren't naturally inclined to learn languages well. Be prepared for long hours of studying if you have trouble with Spanish, as well as for daily vocabulary tests. The class usually breaks down along the lines of native speakers (favored and always get As); gunners and naturally-inclined white kids (As); and the "others," who usually steal low Bs or just fall out the bottom.
She is a very nice teacher who is willing to help students. It is her class that is the hard part. La clase de espanol es muy deficiel.
She is a fantastic spanish teacher. Very knowledgeable and will always help you. Her tests are borderline impossible to ace unless you're a native speaker though thats why the grading scale is curved,
I've had 6 Spanish teachers over the years, and Aviles was better than all of them combined. Her teaching style challenges you to learn, but in a fun, engaging way. Take her class already!
Amazing, taught me more in one year than I learned in the previous three. Very clearly one of the best teachers at west. Preps you well for the IB/AP test as well.
She is an absolutely fantastic teacher! One of my favorite things about her is her skill at making little memorization tricks, I never forget anything she teaches me.
She is really not that great of a teacher. She favors native speakers and lets them slack off in her class. They can sluff and still get an A while others have to work really hard for one.
She is THE BEST SPANSIH teacher there is! I <3 Her!!!!! SHE is so AWSOME!!! she is very patient and kind.
By far the best language teacher at West (which isn't saying a lot.) But really, she's quite a good teacher. Very hard tests, but you do walk out of the classroom knowing a fair amount of Spanish.
She is very good at preparing you for the AP/IB tests. She's realy good!
She's tough, but you can tell she cares about her students.
Aviles is a really good teacher--hard, but if you study and do your minimal homework, you learn a lot. Tests are VERY easy in her class.
She's not only the best spanish teacher but the best language teacher
She's probably the best Spanish teacher at the school. She tends to focus on pointless things at times, but otherwise, she's pretty good.
