I've been teaching Russian for 5 years. Within the first lessons, you'll know alphabet and how to greet people in Russian.
From lesson to lesson you'll increase vocabulary and after a few lessons your knowledge will be enough to read short stories. I use online workbooks, textbooks. I have a list of websites. They let students learn grammar, listen to dialogues, watch movies. I love working with students and can't wait to start this journey through Russian grammar and literature with you.

I first heard Spanish from my dad who's Colombian, so my lessons focus on communication via dynamic task-based activities! First you discover grammar functions & the meaning of vocab through simple comprehension activities. Then we practice these new items through conversation questions or communication activities that simulate real-life tasks like ordering food, asking for directions, or describing a person. This creates a fun atmosphere for learning and gives students ample opportunities to speak! I also like to use multimedia like videos, pictures and powerpoints to make lessons more interactive, especially online lessons! For beginners, I use the book Spanish Demystified or Easy Spanish Step by Step as a learning resource and to provide grammar homework.

Besides speaking, my lessons also cover the other aspects of a language: Reading, writing and listening comprehension. I target those skills with activities such as short readings & writing assignments for homework, and themed ...

About Christy

I was exposed to Spanish throughout my childhood from my dad who is from Colombia, and from my great Spanish teachers. After minoring in it at college, I perfected my fluency from living in Spain for 2 years and studying it for 18 years! My adventures with the language led me to pursue an MA in Spa

I need some patience for sure because I'm SO self critical I can block my own progress. Christy is great, patient and so far, is bringing my conversational spanish out of its shell.

I appreciate her willingness to accommodate me and my schedule and, although I have only had 1 lesson so far, can feel that I am already growing in knowledge and confidence. I really like that she gives me assignments I can work on between lessons so that I can make the most of my lesson time with her.

Although Luis is a good teacher, he has difficulty keeping appointments. His home life interferes with his lessons. Every lesson we had needed rescheduled. Finally we agreed on Fridays and then he rescheduled that one. He doesn't give 24 hr notices as required. So great teacher, but no business organization.
Tim
I really appreciate Luis for the practice he's given me. We worked on lyric analyzation and flow. We focused on speeding up the meter to work harder in performing faster. I have become better with expressing my vocals in a volume where I can sing a long with the music bed. I highly recommend Luis for anyone who is working on improving their vocal training.

I grew up at the Northern tip of the Black Forest in Southwestern Germany and have spent most of my childhood vacations at my grandparents' in the Eifel region, close to the border with Luxemburg. Therefore, I got to grow up with standard German and two quite distinct dialects of German.

Once I started teaching German to refugees and did an internship in a university German class I started to become aware of the intricacies of German grammar and vocabulary and saw it with new eyes. Frankly, I may not be able to explain ALL grammatical phenomena, but it will be my pleasure to explore and expand my knowledge of German with you.

We can discuss what life in the German-speaking world is like, explore German literature and music, and along the way have a look at the grammar, vocabulary and prosody you may need to talk about those things.

Los geht's! :)

Having a teacher that doesn't only teach but also live the languages he speaks makes the learning experience with Viktor really fun and effective. Thank you so much!

Viktor is the best! Would definitely recommend for any language instruction needs.
Jakob
If you get a chance to learn with Viktor you can consider yourself very lucky! He tought me spanish for over a year before I went to Colombia and it was thanks to his help that I could get a good grip of the language so fast and am now fluent. What I found so special about him was the incredible combination of knowledge, teaching skills and personal warmth. In other words: You will learn a lot, in a very eficient manner and gain a friend at the same time! Thank´s a lot Viktor it was absolutely great to learn with you, I hope to see you soon!

"Sophie is excellent and is my absolute go-to in San Diego. Believe me, I know because I have had several French tutors/teachers in the San Diego and Bay area. She is a keen listener and will tailor your lessons to your personal or professional needs. Sophie is also great at providing a nice flowing lesson while still providing a good academic backbone to what you are studying. Stop your search, she's it. -Paul Jeffrey, Academic Services Advisor, Kaplan College"
