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

She does a great job at making sure the language sticks.

Chanee is amazing. My daughter (just turned eight) could not be more psyched for these lessons. She has been a kid who has fizzled fast around different kinds of lessons and this fire keeps on burning! She is learning a lot in such a short time. We are hoping actually increase lessons.

I grew up at the Northern tip of the Black Forest in Southwestern Germany and have spent most of my childhood vacations at my grandparents' in the Eifel region, close to the border with Luxemburg. Therefore, I got to grow up with standard German and two quite distinct dialects of German.

Once I started teaching German to refugees and did an internship in a university German class I started to become aware of the intricacies of German grammar and vocabulary and saw it with new eyes. Frankly, I may not be able to explain ALL grammatical phenomena, but it will be my pleasure to explore and expand my knowledge of German with you.

We can discuss what life in the German-speaking world is like, explore German literature and music, and along the way have a look at the grammar, vocabulary and prosody you may need to talk about those things.

Los geht's! :)

I have taught ESL for 20 years to individuals and groups. I have been teaching both adults and children in private and business/corporate environments.

I like to focus on conversation and pronunciation while learning grammar and the basic rules of the language. This allows students to improve their speaking and listening skills and be able to apply immediately what they learn.

Learning while having fun is my mission!

Daniela has been my teacher since eight year of the English course that I do in the Company I work for.
She is a very good teacher for many reasons but first of all she has a characteristic that all teachers should have, empathy.
She doesn’t use the classic teaching method of the school, I find her method more effective because it’s easy and logical so more understandable for all the people.
I improved a lot with her even just doing one hour a week of lessons and I gained more confidence especially in speaking.
Carla
Daniela has been my daughters' teacher for eight years and my teacher for one year. We are completely satisfied with her english lessons both at home and online. She is really competent and enthusiast ! My older daughter was able to live for one year in the USA as an exchange student thanks to Daniela's classes.

"I have a strong Eastern European accent and sought Gabriel’s help to reduce it. He is an amazing teacher - explains well and he is really very patient and persistent with you. He tries to make the lessons funny and easy. Accent reduction takes time but with Gabriel’s method I started realizing the mistakes I make when pronouncing words just after a few lessons."

"Our time and resources were valued by Chrissy. She was punctual and very quickly assessed our son's strengths and challenges. Her rapport and ability to help our son delve into his own understanding to find the correct answer, rather than providing the correct responses herself, was refreshing; A natural teacher. We are looking forward to the next session.

The Complete List of English Idioms, Proverbs, & Expressions

Although English idioms don't make sense at first, these unique expressions (together with proverbs) add substance and humor to our conversations. The Oxford Dictionary defines the word "idiom" as a: "group of words established by usage as having a meaning not deducible from those of the individual words (e.g. over the moon, see the light)." This means that English idioms should not be taken literally, because their meaning is metaphorical. You don't really wish someone would “break a …
