Initially I like to evaluate the student's current comprehension level (regardless of years studied) to better select the appropriate starting point. From there, if there is a specific subject matter or course work/syllabus for a class that needs to be followed, I can tailor lessons to fit those needs. Throughout lessons, I like to bring in elements such as cartoons, newspapers, movie clips, etc. to aid in understanding everyday usage & make learning practical and pertinent to the student.

**30 minute lessons are available for students interested in Conversational Spanish practice (for Intermediate/Advanced Only). Please send me a message if you are interested & we can discuss how to arrange through TakeLessons.

About Kenji Luis
I grew up speaking English, Portuguese & Japanese in a multilingual family and from a young age developed a strong affinity & penchant for languages. I attended an English-Portuguese Bilingual school through 6th grade and studied Japanese 4 years in high school, along with weekend Japanese school classes. In college I went on to major in International Relations & Diplomacy with a concentration in French studies, also honing my Spanish that I had picked up along the way (with Romance Languages, I have a very easy time of language absorption). I've gone on to work for international companies wherein my language skills have been highly sought after, translating & communicating often in all my language strengths.

Kenji is a nice guy and speaks very slowly and clearly. My only misgiving was with error correction. I am not sure if he could not hear me well do to the connection, but I got the feeling he was not correcting all my mistakes when I spoke. I also would have preferred a more structured class, but I probably should have told him that in the beginning of our session. Otherwise he was a nice guy and spoke Portuguese very well.

Spanish is fun. That is my approach to teaching the language and culture. My teaching experience has been centered in High School Spanish from beginners level-AP Spanish Literature (high passing rate on final exam). I have also worked with children in elementary and middle school level. In addition to college level Spanish tutoring experience, I have also worked with adults, who just wanted to brush up on conversational for travel, pleasure, or business. "Aprende, practica y logra tu objetivo"

About Catalina
Loving what I do is what makes me an effective and popular Spanish Teacher/Tutor. As a Native Speaker of the target language, I had to learn English. Having had that experience, has helped me to relate to the difficulty involved in language acquisition and to become more compassionate with my students and their needs.
I have been teaching / tutoring successfully for over 15 years now. I have worked with students from elementary school - college level ( Undergrad/Grad). I have a Certificate in AP Spanish Literature, which is the highest level of High School Spanish. I have also worked with adults who wanted to increase their knowledge of the language and culture for both leisure and business reasons.
Keeping in mind the needs and goals of my students, each class is designed to cater to the individual's needs. !Buena Suerte con su
aprendizaje del idioma!

I have taken lessons with Ronald since I was 6, I am now 23. In my 17 years of taking lessons I have learned to play piano, sing and am proficient in music theory. In the more recent years I have even had the opportunity to teach music through Ronald. Throughout the years, I have experienced and witnessed the patience and kindness Ronald consistently shows his students. He encourages his students to become better and shares in their enthusiasm due to their accomplishments. Ronald genuinely cares about his students and is dedicated to making sure his students improve. I fully recommend Ronald for students who have parents who want to be involved in the learning process and especially for young children who are just starting out. Ronald works well with families, includes parents every step of the way and is very patient with young students helping them learn in an open and encouraging environment.

Mr.Chaz is really dedicated to his profession. He started to teach my seven year old son over one year ago and he has motivated him to sing his best and he started piano with him last year which has been a phenomenal experience for my son. Chaz really focuses on the detail, theory and groundwork necessary to excel in music. If you are lucky enough to get your child started with him you will never regret the experience. He is simply the best! My son sings all the time now and loves to play piano. I am so happy for my son to have found someone to expand on his talents!

Growing up in a bilingual household, I was taught both English and Spanish simultaneously. While many bilingual children struggle with reading and writing, I took upper division classes to ensure that my Spanish would be strong in all aspects. As a Spanish teacher, I like to ensure that my students can understand the materials they are being asked of, rather than simply producing the homework which they believe their teachers would want them to give. A full understanding and full immersion of all aspects of the Spanish language ensures that the language will stay with students for life.

About Emilia

I have been playing and singing since I was 8 years old, and recently graduated from Chapman University with Music Performance major with a double emphasis in Vocal and Oboe Performance. I am currently attending the University of Southern California for my Masters in Oboe Performance, while teaching in-home, in-studio, and online lessons worldwide!

Portable keyboard, mus
ic stand, recording devices that can have recordings sent to students after or during lessons!

I trained classically but personally enjoy singing Pop and Musical Theatre. Because of my background, I like to make sure that my students have good technique that carries through to singing any style they like so that they can accomplish all of their goals without damaging their voices and affecting their health. I have extensive experience with singing in languages including Spanish, French, German, and Italian and like my students to experience different languages as well.

Hola amigos!

My name is Erika Hoffman Garcia and I would love to teach you Spanish! I am the daughter of a German- American father and Panamanian mother. I am 100% bilingual in both English and Spanish. I grew up mostly in Latin America living in Costa Rica, Chile, Panama amongst visiting countries such as Peru, Dominican Republic, Argentina, Nicaragua, and Spain. If you want help on your Spanish homework, need someone to quiz you, converse with you etc. or need assistance in reading, writing and speaking the language I'm here to help! I make learning fun and more than anything I teach it in an applicable way so that you can use it as an every day language and not as just a way to pass a class. I have a Bachelors of Arts in Theatre Arts from Loyola Marymount University so if you want to include Spanish Soap Operas into the mix we can
definitely do that! Cheers to learning a new language!
