Learn how to speak, read and write proper Spanish. I'm a native speaker that enjoys to teach and share my knowledge with anyone that is interested. I've tutored people from all ages and think that learning should be a fun process.

I am also a musician from the Conservatory of Bellas Artes in Colombia and a Music Producer from the Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. My Career began when I was 12 years old playing Piano and today I work among world known musicians.

Most of our students are from the South Florida area. Our pricing is reasonable and I can create custom packages to accommodate your budget.

It would have been better if there was more to work on than one drill. Neisha is good at practicing as we declared at the beginning and doesn’t have much to work on. We won’t be continuing.

I teach in a way that is as focused on the grammar as you want to be. I prefer conversational classes, but for many in traditional classes it is the grammar that they are not understanding.

About Bryce
Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn. -Ben Franklin

An investment in knowledge pays the best interest. - Ben Franklin

The unconventional method of teaching begins here

I am a Spanish Language Consultant

I am a concierge tutor meaning that I make every meeting personalized for you. Everyone learns a language differently. For some they just want to speak. For others they want to learn to read or write. And some want to do it all. Either way I will do everything in my power to assure that happens.

Where did I learn Spanish?
I took it in high school like all of us and failed out in the second year. Then seven years later I took a class in Bellevue College and got the best grade in the class. Soon after the class finished I moved to Bogotá, Colombia for a year and half where I really improved
my level to near native status. When I was a kid in high school I did not see how cool it is to be able to speak another language nor did I care. However, now it was a defining point in my life and something that no one can take away from me.

My schedule is also very flexible giving you plenty of freedom over when to meet.

I am connected to a network of native speakers who are all my very close friends who can be included in the sessions when the time is right or whenever you may like.

I have been a Spanish Consultant since 2011 and love doing it. I really get fired up when students begin to take off on their own with the language with less and less of my help.

I don't think you will find a more passionate tutor.

Students who will succeed with me can be of any age but should have these traits if they wish to excel:
Discipline
Not afraid to make mistakes
Positive attitudes
Open mind
Willingness to think outside of the box

Thank you and have a beautiful day now

Want to learn a new language? How about learning Spanish ? It doesn't matter if you know anything about it. I can teach you at any level and you will become an excellent speaker and writer. I'm from Venezuela and Spanish is my mother language. I have 5 years of experience teaching.

About María
Hello!! I'm Maria Fernanda

I am a business administrator and I currently live in Madrid Spain where I am doing a Master in Business Analytics and Strategic Data.

In my spare time I love teaching English(basic and intermediate level) and Spanish(all levels).
My teaching method is always depending on the student interest. Generally I try to do it the most fun, interesting and entertaining possible.
I have a special rule: no other language allow in class(just Spanish or English depending on what language I'm teaching). I believe that the most efficient way to start learning a new language is to think, listen and speak just in that language. Of course I could be flexible if the student doesn't speak that new language at all.
In my hometown (Venezuela) I had experience teaching basic English in an elementary school and teaching priv
et lessons for kids and teenagers as well.

Let me know if you are interested in taking classes with me.
Don't lose the opportunity to learn Spanish with a native speaker!

¡¡Hola!! Soy María Fernanda, soy administradora de empresas y actualmente vivo en Madrid, España en donde me encuentro cursando un Master en Business Analytics and Strategic Data. En mi tiempo libre me encanta enseñar inglés (nivel básico e intermedio) y español (todos los niveles).
Mi método de enseñanza depende siempre del interés del estudiante. Generalmente trato de hacerlo de la manera más divertida, interesante y entretenida posible.
Tengo una regla especial: ningún otro idioma se permite en clase (sólo español o inglés dependiendo del idioma que estoy enseñando). Creo que la manera más eficiente de comenzar a aprender un nuevo idioma es pensar, escuchar y hablar solo en ese idioma. Por supuesto, podría ser flexible si el alumno no habla ese idioma nuevo en absoluto.
En mi país natal (Venezuela) tuve experiencia enseñando inglés básico en una escuela primaria y también dando clases particulares a niños y adolescentes.

Avísame si estás interesado en tomar clases conmigo.
¡No pierdas la oportunidad de aprender inglés y comunicarte en cualquier lugar del mundo!

Spanish is a Romance language, I like to open new doors investing in myself, so, I want to help somebody with the same goal that I have. Looking for new opportunities.
If I can help a person with something that came with me since I remember (native language), I will be happy to do it.

About Jorge
Hi.
My name is Jorge Gonzalez N.
I was born 28 years ago in a little town called Tonalá Chiapas in Mexico.
I came to North America in 2013, since then I have been learning this great English language with my wife, and now i am passing my language to my daughter, that makes me confident of teaching Spanish, because both, my wife and my daughter are learning my romance language.
That makes me take a new step on my life, maybe not teaching but yes sharing this ability.
