Private Spanish Teacher

I have a Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry with a minor in Pre-Health Professional Studies. I have also studied Spanish at the university level, and I know the content depth that is important to teach to my students. As I am currently earning my Master in Secondary Education towards becoming a teacher, I am trained in the learning sciences to teach my lessons in an effective and memorable manner. I have experience scaffolding and differentiating lessons. I know how to accommodate and modify lessons based on IEPs. I am also trained in designing Response-to-Intervention to get underachieving students to succeed. I have experience with Highly Gifted, International Baccalaureate, and Advanced Placement classes.

About Diana

Welcome! I am glad to meet you. My name is Ms. Diana, and I will be your teacher. I'm looking forward to helping you on your path towards academic success!

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!

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 grew up in Mexico City and have spent half of my life between the USA and there. I believe the best way to learn Spanish is to talk! Learning a new language is a fun, exciting experience that is better delivered when we can talk about day to day activities and common experiences.

I am passionate about teaching Spanish intermediate and advanced students. Take a class with me so I can show you the joy and happiness of learning this magnificent and rich language.

About Olivia

I'm full of life, excited and passionate about making YOU feel comfortable learning Spanish in an open, trustworthy environment. I believe in teaching through conversation, no pressures, just having fun while talking in Spanish. I want to talk about the things that YOU are passionate about. That'

I have been teaching Spanish since 1973, when I was 20 years old.
I did it for 10 years long (and still do) and I used so many methods that I finally came up with my own method to teach students of any age, any background and any motivation to learn a system that efficient, that will have you speak Spanish, and have a normal conversation from lesson one! I focus on verbs and practical conversation but no nonsense stories most books have. Books are only optional! And I am available also in between lessons and for as long as you need me in your lifetime with no retainer fees! The vocabulary is Latin American real life as you see it in the news! And best of all, I speak Spanish since I was 7 years old, when I used to live in Uruguay! I speak and teach 7 languages, soI know what is is to learn a foreign language and I know how to make it easier for you!

I have been speaking Spanish conversationally and reading/listening to stories for over four years now, with more sparse experience in the past (high school, etc.). My wife and her family are native Spanish speakers, so I have deeply enriched my Spanish language knowledge these past years. In lessons with me, we'll cover pronunciation, grammar, syntax, and colloquialisms common to Spanish spoken in Mexico.

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.

"My daughter HATED Spanish due to her teacher at school and was failing. I was looking for a Spanish Tutor and one of my friends recommended Rosita. In 3 classes she taught my daughter what her teacher took months to teach. Kelly has been taking lessons twice a week with her to help her with her homework and really break down the Spanish Rules and now she loves learning the language. Her grade approved drastically. What surprised me the most is that she is excited to go to her lessons with Rosita. I noticed when I come in the class she listens, has patience and she constantly encourages my daughter. She is a one of a kind teacher. I can't recommend her enough. She has been a blessing! Even I'm learning Spanish without even knowing! I'm going to continue classes with her through the summer so she doesn't forget everything she learned."

"I signed my 8yr old daughter up for weekly tutoring with Maryen as a continuation of her Spanish Immersion program from school. At first my daughter was hesitant to do them but by the second or third week she was always really excited and looked forward to her class. Maryen found different ways to keep her engaged and made sure that she worked with her current level as she was not a beginner. This was one expense I do not regret at all and am already considering reinvesting in again."
