I have studied and traveled in Mexico and Spain. My hometown and Bay Area history are full of Spanish speakers, a great way to put my language skills to use. My students have improved their grades and found joy in learning a new language. I hope my practically-minded method will appeal to you. I have written and spoken extensively in Spanish. Poetry, research papers, music . . . Thanks for your interest, and please do not hesitate to contact me personally for more information. I hope to be able to meet your educational needs. Thank you.

About Lars
I began to teach guitar at 16 years of age. I have taught seven- to 60-year-old students in a wide variety of styles. From age 12 to 21 I took private guitar lessons regularly. Now, I have a lesson every once in a while. I studied jazz guitar primarily with Randy Vincent, one of the San Francisco Bay Area's greatest guitar players. Aside from teaching lessons as a job, I have played guitar in many concerts and continue to do so. Before moving to San Francisco for university studies, I gained a lot of experience and valuable education with guitar. I played in the jazz bands in Junior High and High School. I went to four years of a week-long summer jazz camp called Jazz Camp West, where I took classes, played open mics and had fun with many musicians, making some good friends. I hold BA degrees in Music (Jazz Guitar) and Spanish, as well as
an MA in Music, from San Francisco State University. By now, I am confident in working with whatever musical material students offer! Thank you.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a laid back teacher, but I definitely expect students to practice what I suggest they practice. I advise that students use method books or sheet music of some sort, and I will certainly make notes for them and create materials they can learn from. I always teach based on the goals of the student and what type of music they enjoy, but I also like to guide the student in a direction I think would benefit them. I usually introduce music to play right away, conforming of course to the skill level and interest of the student. I now a play seven-string guitar that differs from the standard six-string guitar in that it has one string lower than the low E of a six-string. It will be practical to aide students by accompanying with a bass range instrument.

*** Specialties ***
Guitar
My guitar roots are mainly Jazz, but I am always happy to employ a very wide range of styles. I work with both modal and tonal musical styles.

I understand how difficult it can be to learn a new language, especially when you have other subjects to worry about. My personal learning experience helped me understand what is important in developing an easy tutoring program and successfully implementing it. My tutoring experience began in 2008. I believe my qualification and many years of Spanish tutoring with students of all ages and levels have rounded my experience as a private tutor.

About jennifer
Hola! I am a native Spanish speaker, fluent in both Spanish and English. I understand how difficult it can be to learn a new language, especially when you have other subjects to worry about. My personal learning experience helped me understand what is important in developing a practical and easy tutoring program and successfully implementing it.

My tutoring experience began in 2008, my first year of College. I was looking to earn a little cash on the side to help pay for books and school fees. My most memorable tutoring experience was when I lived in Spain for a few months and tutored College level Spanish.
I believe my qualification and many years of Spanish tutoring with students of all ages and levels have rounded my experience as a private tutor. I have been exposed to a variety of personalities, learning curves challenges and ha
ve had the opportunity to customize and direct my teaching to the individual students needs and personal style.

I am a credentialed high school Spanish teacher in CA with a masters in education, so I am very familiar with how students learn and adapting to learning styles. I like to build vocab, then use conversation to more organically learn words!

I'm happy to adapt lessons to themes or specific grammar exercise for my students if they wish! Some native speakers may speak well and know a lot of vocab, but they struggle explaining the WHY certain grammar features are the way they are! Just like in English, you need both conversational AND formal knowledge of a language.

About Justin
I have a bachelor of arts in Spanish with a minor in Latin American studies. I've studied abroad in México and Argentina (three months each) and know well the language variances of each. I would love to share both language and teach cross cultural competence to students of all ages. I am a trained, credentialed teacher in California and have experience differentiating lessons and activities for a wide spectrum of learners. I've taught high school classes of Spanish as well as Spanish for spanish-speakers, so my lessons can be used for students who grew up speaking spanish at home, but lack a formal education in the language. I also have a masters in multilingual education from Cal State San Marcos

Whether you want it for travel in Latin America, or because you live in an area with lots of native Spanish-speakers, I can help you build your vocabulary and fundamental knowledge of grammatical concepts!
I use a variety of methods, though my teaching is heavily conversation based. I believe conversation needs the foundation for all languages; everything else will fall into place once you learn how to actually express yourself aloud. I also teach using literature/stories/poetry written in the language of focus.
If this is your first time learning a foreign language, Spanish will be your gateway! (And I will be your guide).

About Malka
Dear Potential Students,
Welcome to my page -I am excited to meet you! I have taught private students for about three years now, and I enjoy it immensely. A short biography as it pertains to how we will work together: I spent two years in the world of professional Opera, and three in the Jewish music/clergy world, and experienced music as a powerful connector in both worlds. The human voice is unique in terms of its capability for depth and expression, yet sometimes we don't know how to unlock power of our own voices (literal and metaphorical).
This is where I come in. I offer my clients a way of learning to sing with their unique, authentic voice using a combination of emotional and purely technical tools. Singing is a very vulnerable undertaking, so I take a holistic approach, and I give my students a technique that is easily applied
to virtually any genre of music. Whether you want to pursue a career as an opera singer, rock star, pop singer, or you just want to sing for the sheer pleasure of it doesn't matter. What matters is that you sing. Looking forward to hearing from you!

I have greatly enjoyed my Hebrew lessons with Malka. She is patient and down-to-earth and clearly has a passion for the language, helping others appreciate its beauty, and for teaching in general. I had never spoken Hebrew before, but from the first lesson, she was already having me recite vocabulary and construct sentences using proper grammar and pronunciation. I look forward to future lessons with her, and, of course, I recommend her to anyone wanting to learn more about the Hebrew language or Jewish and/or Israeli culture.

I have been teaching professionally for 5 years. I have a unique teaching curriculum with an emphasis on speaking and understanding the Spanish language. You won't find anyone else that teaches Spanish like I do. All of my students have shown tremendous improvement in just a few days. My program is design for my students to learn the Spanish in a fun and interactive way, and not bored you with lesson from a textbook. A new language should be taught like if it was your first language and not be overwhelmed with all the "rules". I want my students to enjoy learning a new language and have them reach their full potential. Hasta pronto.

About Carlos
I am a certified bilingual speaker, I've been teaching Spanish for 5 years. I graduated from The university of Texas in Arlington with a Bachelors of Foreign language.

Studentd can expect to improve week to week in their speaking and understanding of the language. I believe that learning a new language should have a similar approach as when you learned your first. I primary teach students to speak and understand Spanish, reading and writing should and will come later into the teaching course. I can help any student quickly learn in just a few days, and give them the option to use it in a real life enviroment.

I teach Spanish to students of all different ages and experience levels. Spanish is my first language and I have all the tools to make anyone succeed. My unique teaching methods is what really separates me from the rest of the te
achers, no longer would you be reading books and learn the "rules" of the language. You would will quickly grasp the language and thanks to my unique approach, you will be talking in no time..

My personal passion is to see people succeed but I firmly believe that great technique is essential to be successful. I've seen time and time again someone trying to learn a new language and quickly give up simply because he/she did not have the right guidance. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to achieve your goals.

Native speaker fluent in english and spanish. I have been educated in both Mexico and USA, so my language levels meet high standards; currently I tutor AP (advanced placement) Spanish students at a local school, and have seen such a huge progress with them, because there we make learning fun and varied, and also give many tips on language learning, as I learn other languages myself,and have seen results, I am an expert adviser, who gives personalized help.
I also get close to my students so they feel comfortable with me, we make learning fun and humoristic, not just plain on studying grammar, this way always fails.

About Carolina
I love art, and social studies, they are to me the pleasures of life: sometimes I like to write poems, to express my feelings through them, as I believe this let's me release my negative emotions, and is an alternative to bad things like alcohol, etc. I love seeing art from all over the world: European, Latin, Asian, but mostly middle eastern, for whom I have a great love and would love to meet soon, specifically Petra, Jordan, Egypt, Israel, since some of the most beautiful places are located here, and I dream of feeling free, adventurous and far away from the daily typical routine. Simply contemplating breathtaking places would be life changing and stepping on the places where the greatest civilizations once lived could be life changing. I'm ambitious, and no wish is too silly for me, I believe that we have the power t
o remove the problems of our society, positivity is stronger than complaining, and brings us all together into harmony, regardless of our age, gender, sexual orientation, race, religion, disabilities, etc.
