Sebastian is very understanding of the varying needs of students of different ages and experience/education levels, and adapts the speed and style of his teaching to meet the individual needs of his students to ensure they have a clear understanding of the material each session. Knowing the importance of comprehending grammar and structure, he lays a solid foundation upon which to build a successful understanding and comprehension of the proper use of the language. I would highly recommend Sebastian to anyone looking to learn Spanish the "right" way.

My language lessons are customized to my student's needs and preferences.
When teaching Spanish I don't only focus on teaching the grammar and vocabulary but also on transmitting my culture as I introduce you to Spanish literature, movies from different Spanish speaking countries and also Spanish music. After all, there's a lot more to Spanish culture than soap operas!

Teaching Spanish in New York city gives me the opportunity to create situations of Spanish immersion for you, we can always select different Spanish locations in the city to practice lesson topics such as "asking for directions", "shopping", and so forth.

About Isa

As a teacher, I'm very proactive, which means I never settle with just a book! I enjoy creating exercises and strategies according to my students' needs and preferences. This includes incorporating music, literature, movies and games to the daily lesson. As a teacher, I'm very patient and I consider

Isabel is an innovative, patient and fun loving teacher who makes you forget about your fears and anxieties of learning something that is out of your comfort zone.
Try her and you won't regret the experience!
Amy
Isabel is a wonderful Spanish teacher! Her classes are well planned and she makes the lessons fun and enjoyable. She is warm and supportive and provides just the right amount of challenge. I highly recommend Isabel!
Tim
I’ve taken classes for years both online and in person, and Isa is the only Spanish teacher I’ve stayed with the whole time, which is a reflection of how highly I think of her as an instructor. As I’ve improved from a beginner to an advanced level, Isa has adjusted our classes to my level and pushed me to improve. She recognizes my weaker areas and always has a strategy to address them. Our classes consist of a balance of every day conversation or an article to read, followed by exercises to improve my fluency or increase my vocabulary. She is a native Spanish speaker, who is equally fluent in English, and is able to explain concepts in both languages. Regardless of your level, Isa will be a great instructor for you.

To whom it may concern,
Diana L. Has been an amazing instructor for the past couple of months. She has encouraged me and pushed me to do better in math. She explains the material in different ways to find a perfect fit for me to understand. She’s very cooperative and values teaching. She has helped me in every way possible. She gives session notes so I can study the material afterwards in order to help me retain everything. I highly recommend her teaching!
Cliff
To Whom it may concern, 

I am writing this review because something amazing has been taking place with my child since she's been working with Ms. Diana L.

My Daughter Chelsea struggled for years in math and she lacked mathematical confidence, but since she's been working with Diana her Math skills and confidence have increased dramatically. 

Ms. L. takes a flexible approach to teaching and finding the best tailored approach for her students. I believe this approach is the reason for my daughters' recent success. Diana has only been working with Chelsea for a few months and her test scores and class participation have increased greatly.

I would recommend Ms. L. to any one that has a child that struggles in any area of Math , she has done wonders for my child and I am highly appreciative to her for all her teaching.

Sincerely,
Cliff Lawrence

I have lived in Spain more than 20 years, I am a native Spanish speaker. I studied all my youth and finished High School there in Spain. Later on I graduated from the University of North Texas obtaining my Bachelor of Arts in Music and a Minor in Spanish. I taught Spanish at IALE International School of Valencia for a year and then obtained my Teaching Certification in Spanish in Texas this year. I can teach grammar, how to write the language correctly, correct pronunciation, conversation and all related to this beautiful language. I like teaching all ranges of age. I have experience teaching very beginners up to adults.

If you have a lot of knowledge about the language but you want to improve your speaking in a higher level, or you need to learn it for your job or business I am the one to speak with! I will take your Spanish to a HIGHER LEVEL!

If you are asking yourself if it is the same language than the Latin American Spanish, yes, it is the same. The only differences are based ...

Private Spanish Teacher

Hello my name is Shirley. I was born & raised in Pennsylvania. I grew up in a bilingual family with my mom's side speaking Spanish (my mom's family is from Nicaragua) and my dad's side speaking English. I taught Spanish to elementary students (Pre-K through 8th grade) for about 6 years. Currently, I am teaching English as Second Language to adults. I love & I am passionate about teaching languages to people. I find languages, cultures & traditions to be fascinating. My Spanish lessons are engaging, interactive, and creative. As a Spanish teacher in private schools, I was expected to not only teach Spanish but also develop &/or help update the Spanish curriculum. I had very little resources therefore, I tend not to teach from a textbook. My lessons are unique because I love to bring my own experience & knowledge into my lessons. Furthermore, I take a lot of pride in making my lessons my own & ensuring they are adaptable to fit each of my students strengths & needs.

"I take Advanced Spanish lessons from Julissa and have thoroughly enjoyed the sessions. She has tailored the sessions quite well to accommodate my learning needs and abilities and is very gracious with my sometimes tumultuous schedule changes. Julissa has wonderful command of her class sessions, but also makes the student feel completely relaxed and eager to learn. She offers corrections gently and points out the many ways one can express the same thought so that I have options that I can remember. Her background in psychology prompts her to really understand me as a student and adapt her teaching in ways that match my learning level and motivation (and that varies with the session, but she is also always ready to shift gears!). I look forward to my time with her and would recommend her to anyone who wants to improve their Spanish with an expert teacher who is enthusiastic to help you learn."
