About Jose

Greetings students and families,

I am a teacher of languages, dedicated to helping all learners meet their language learning goals. I am soon to receive my credentials for teaching English as a Second Language from the University of Saint Thomas. With this I plan to serve the needs of students in our region, to meet their academic, career and life goals. As a native Spanish speaker as well as a major in Spanish from Hamline Univeristy, I am ready to assist students seeking to learn or improve their speaking, reading or writing abilities.

I have a long tenure working in the schools with o
ur students and know the beat of their educational needs. Whether it's for an IB test, for an upcoming travel abroad opportunity, to grasp the subjects taught in class with more depth or to prepare for TOEFL, ACTFL or the myriad of other language tests out there, I can help you. Feel free to contact me to set up an appointment.

About Tyler

Hello!/Bonjour!/Buenos días!/Guten Tag!!/Hei!! здравствуйте!

My name is Tyler, and I love to teach language. I love everything about it.

My teaching philosophy is simple:
1. Everyone is capable of learning a new language.
2. We are capable of anything we set our mind to achieve.
3. Learning a language should be an entertaining, fun experience!

Here is quick synopsis of me as a tutor: I received two undergraduate degrees from the University of Minnesota with a 3.8 GPA. I maintain excellent writing skills in German, English, Spanish, Russian, Norwegian, and French. I greatly enjoy wo
rking in a teaching setting with people of all ages, races, and cultures. I have been a teaching assistant in over four classroom settings, and I have been a freelance tutor for over three years now.

Please contact me with any questions you have about me or my services!

Kelly M.

Minneapolis, MN

I've been teaching Spanish for 10 years, speaking it since I was a little kid, traveled to many Spanish-speaking countries, and completed my doctoral fieldwork over the course of four years in Chile. You'll be speaking simple sentences within the first couple of lessons, and we'll continuously work on vocabulary and verb conjugation. Espero contar con tu presencia!

About Kelly

I'm Dr. Kelly and I can't wait to meet you! I recently finished my doctorate at the University of Minnesota. I've been teaching for ten years now, and I especially love teaching Spanish and Acting, although I also love Algebra! I'm an upbeat, positive teacher-- the drill sergeant style isn't my cup of tea!

Theater Acting · In studio
I have had the pleasure of being one of Kelly’s students during my time as an undergraduate in Theatre Arts at the University of Minnesota. In the time that I was her student, and beyond that, I have nothing but positive things to say about her as an instructor in both her ability to teach and to relate to her students on a humble and personal level.

My first day with Kelly I could tell instantaneously that she was going to be something unique. And that is because she is perfectly honest about who she is and why she is instructing the material she does. So often, in the collegiate field, I come across professors who are willing to be personable with their students but with their own ends at the forefront of their minds; that is teaching the material as it appears in the book. Kelly operates on a different level - everything she does is to make her students not just learn the material at hand, but to understand, dig into, and critique it. She welcomes the ability to bring any opinion or process to accomplishing a goal in class (which takes an edge off of the need to fit a certain methodology of thought that many other classes lock themselves into). Working with Kelly is like talking to that one friend who you go to in order to share a really exciting idea because you know she will boundlessly support it, push you to realize what your exact goal is and how it works, then make you do it. Having her insight as a student, an artist, or in any form or group-problem solving is invaluable.

To speak further on her personality is beyond words. She is the kind of team member you can only dream of having. She is hard working, committed, light hearted, and understanding. Kelly has a great eye for standing back and seeing a whole picture and pin pointing what goes into it, and what could go into it to make a more realized work (be that artistically or academically). When I was in one of her classes, she worked privately and team-wide with me as we collaborated on the final project for the class, which involved composing and directing a scene that commented upon one of the works that we analyzed during the semester. During this collaborative process Kelly, as the instructor, was focused on understanding what our work was striving toward first before she ever commented on the quality and merits of what we were doing and how we were working. It was after she had met with all of us that she offered her own personal insight into what we could do to make a stronger piece, in a style as far away from a report card or teacher conference where they tell you everything wrong you did and how to make it better, she was telling us everything right we did and offering ways that she saw the piece being stronger.

The inviting energy that Kelly gives off no matter what task she is charged with is something truly electrifying, and her positive attitude is infectious. Any place of education, person looking for tutelage, artist, or co-worker would be remiss to not invite her on board.

It is with the utmost sincerity and pleasure that I recommend Kelly for any position in consideration for her.

Shai H.

Saint Paul, MN

I enjoy working according to a variety of different methodologies some of which include "Communicative Language Teaching" and "The Audiolingual Method". In tutor sessions I opt to rely on an approach know by name "Community Language Learning" (or CLL) in which I focus very directly on specific challenges that my student might have in their Spanish language studies, in order to help the student achieve the linguistic adequacy that they strive for.

Looking forward to working with you!

About Shai

As an individual who is a non-native speaker but has achieved near fluency, I know how to learn Spanish! As well as working as a tutor for many years I have been immersed for over 15 years in a bilingual context as a small business owner and currently teach Spanish at the high school and college level. My institutional teaching experience has taken place in private education (college and charter high school) and therefore I have not had the need to obtain a state license - however my academic preparation in Latin American Studies/Spanish and a MAEd (Master's in Education) have helped me develo
p the tools necessary to be an outstanding educator.
