Hola, cómo estás? I am a certified native teacher. I was born in Madrid, Spain (Europe), and I live in California since 2014. I love teaching, and have all my life. I know how to teach you Spanish in the best way, with funny and effective classes, with patience, and with speaking slowly and clearly. You will learn the best proper pronunciation, our customs and our expressions. You will be able to speak with expressions, accent, emphasys and more different options of the language that only can be taught by natives teachers.
We will learn by enjoying and practicing, through one to one conversation, exercises, repetitions and homework.
Should be great as well to do lessons with 2 students . It is cheaper and works really really good.

Nos vemos ! :)

Saludos, Javier

Javier es excelente. Lo recomiendo a todos. In just two lessons, I have learned an extensive amount. Javier molds his lessons to his students level and needs.

Javier is a great teacher, he takes his time with you to make sure you know the work. He always gives homework and is also very nice, and working with him is very comfortable! He makes sure you’re pronouncing the words correctly, and also how to use words in each different sentence. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who wants to learn Spanish!

1 year learning with him. A little bit hard sometimes, but I love it

I'm ready to help you with your MSA or even if you select to learn the Arabic dialect (I teach LCA Levantine Colloquial Arabic: Shami شامي).

Marie is an amazing teacher. I took a couple of years of French in high school and have learned in a much more fluid, easier to understand way from Marie. The way she teaches she connects sounds & letters of several words. It's so helpful her strategy of teaching. Thank you Marie!

I served as a Latin tutor at Walnut Hills High School year for about 3 years. I taught students of differing levels of Latin (Latin I, II, and III). The topics I covered in my teachings included grammar, the memorization of Latin words, and the translation of Latin texts. I myself have studied Latin for 4 years. I have taken the AP Latin course and received a 5 (the highest grade possible) on the AP Exam. In our lessons together, I will help to review any topics that are confusing, to complete homework assignments, to review and for tests and the AP Exam, etc. Lessons are tailored to each student's individual needs and learning styles.

About Taro

こんにちは  My name is Taro, and I am a Japanese teacher from Kobe, Japan.   ​  I first started teaching Japanese when the mother of a high school student reached out to me to help him learn Japanese. I have been teaching the language since then to men and women of all ages.   Japanese is a lang

Taro really is the best instructor, and I highly recommend lessons with him for people of every skill level when learning Japanese! He has all the qualities you want in a teacher: he is patient and is always willing to spend extra time helping me understand difficult grammar points and cultural concepts that impact language; he is communicative and very responsive via email; and (as someone who took in-person lessons) he is an excellent host. I am especially happy with his lesson plans, which are extremely thorough and personalized to my specific skill level and goals—he was also quick to adapt them as my goals changed throughout the year. Every very lesson with Taro has been both educational and very engaging and interesting! Overall, I’ve been so impressed with Taro’s teaching methods, and with his help, I hope to pass the JLPT N2 next year!
Lisellot M.
The best online teacher. Responsible, respectful, always patient and on time. I recommend him.
Kecia
I have had the benefit to work with Taro-San for more than a year and have grown beyond my expectations. Studying with Taro-San has afforded me a Japanese native's insight into the nuances of the Japanese culture and its language in a way that can only be grasped by interaction with someone from Japan. Having lived in Japan for a few years, finding a teacher of Taro-San's caliber was like finding a treasure. His ability to quickly and accurately adapt lessons as well as provide clear, concise, professional and well-organized instruction is amazing. His genuine character of kindness, caring and want of his student's language success is evident in every lesson.
No matter where you are in your Japanese language journey, I would highly recommend Taro-San as a teacher as I am confident in his ability to provide an excellent learning experience.

"I was signed up for a series of half-hour lessons, but Pantelis worked to get as much good work into that time as possible. He zeroed in on my weak spots and we worked on those, both together via Google hangouts and by myself using online classrooms that I was totally unaware of before taking these lessons. I had a tiny background in the language when we started, but he made the most of it. It was a great experience. During the time we were working together, he left town and was actually talking to me from his home in Greece, although it took me a while to figure that out. He was able to report on what was happening on the island while he was there. I recommend Pantelis as a teacher without reservation."

"Joneide has been my Portuguese instructor for different level courses at Brazil in Chicago. She performs in a very professional and well organized manner. In a class with Joneide you can expect to hear and learn a lot from her native language at a very comfortable pace. She is excellent at introducing students to the language, correct pronunciation and much of Brazil’s culture. She is very patient and accommodates to different levels. Her classes always have an enjoyable way to learn such as fun stories or music. I appreciate that she takes the time to introduce the language that may be spoken in a professional environment as well as what you would hear in a casual street conversation. Joneide always has a smile in her face, which to me is very valuable as she loves her job."
