As a fervent learner of Spanish since 2007, I have developed a sincere heart & successful process for teaching this language. I am super passionate seeing my students have that "aha" moment! I love engaging with my students with personalized lessons, that I adapt from a specific curriculum (Puntos de Partido) and then tweak it to meet your particular needs. All ages that I've taught have benefited from my animated and motivating approach. Come learn & speak Spanish with me!
Want to learn to speak Spanish? Sign ASL? I would love to be a part of your journey! I am a patient, and friendly person, who is passionate about language learning!
SPANISH: I use my own personal learning experience mixed with a communicative approach to create a teaching method for my Spanish students. My Spanish teaching method focuses on the development of these four skills: speaking, listening, reading, and then writing. Do you have specific goals? Great! Or are you learning just to be able to speak any and all that you can? Awesome! I teach beginner and intermediate and am a conversation partner and tutor for students more advanced! Also be prepared to be challenged to get involved with the Latin American culture around you!
ASL: My lessons will give you a strong foundation in Sign, and then a few training wheels until you fee
l confident in what you know, and can converse about various real-life topics. My teaching method utilizes much of Deaf professor Dr. Bill Vicars' approach--with signed conversation in each lesson beginning with high frequency concepts. Each lesson is full of new signs, grammar, conversation, Deaf culture tidbits, and more.
About me: I fell in love with language when in 2010 I lived, studied, and worked abroad in Colombia, South America. There I studied Spanish, worked with Deaf students, and taught Spanish speakers English. It was such an enriching experience that upon returning to the USA, I decided to fully surround myself with culturally diverse individuals and continue my learning journey.
One of the major differences between learning a language in a classroom and having a personal instructor is that one-on-one help you will receive --- specific to your level, learning style, and language goals. I will help you stop feeling nervous, renew your motivation, and get you communicating in a new language in no time!!
First lesson was great! Joy is very knowledgeable and tailored the class to the pace needed for me. I look forward to continuing to learn from her.

Joy accurately assessed our daughter’s abilities and catered each lesson to engage, as well as challenge her. Our daughter enjoyed her online sessions, where she not only gained conversation experience, but also expanded her vocabulary and conjugational skills. She will be starting this school year with greater confidence in her Spanish class. Thank you so much for all your help, Joy, and we look forward to more lessons with you!
If you take lessons with me, I will help you with your homework, to make proper sentences, and to be able to have full oral conversations.
My name is Michelle and I am a Soprano. I have been singing classically for seven years. I previously studied at East Los Angeles College, where I received my AA degree in Music and at Azusa Pacific University, where I graduated with a BM in Classical Vocal Performance.
If you take lessons with me, we will go over singing technique fundamentals, IPA (International Phonetic Alphabet) for singers, vocal pedagogy, and classical repertoire. Additionally, I offer lessons in music theory, ear training and sight singing, and Spanish. I am eager to begin working with you!
From the start, Michelle has been so helpful and easy to work with! She is super friendly and wants the best for you, and is quick to understand how to best work with you so that you get the most from your lessons. She has a beautiful voice and is excellent at communicating how to best adjust your own voice to sing better and stronger. She also is very flexible with schedule, which has been so helpful! Thank you for your help, Michelle!

Michelle is the most amazing teacher! Very patient, thorough, challenging and understanding. I highly recommend her! She sees where your level is at and grows from there!!
Thank you Michelle!
Spanish is my very first foreign language that I've been studying off-and-on since 1995. My specialty is grammar but I also can go over vocabulary, pronunciation, and other topics. My Hispanic friends call me "Pablo" or "Pablito" and some people have even told me I speak Spanish better than I do English (whatever that's supposed to mean). I have both a BA and MA in Spanish and wrote my Master's thesis on Miguel de Cervantes' "Don Quijote de la Mancha."
I hail from Walla Walla, Washington, home of the "famous" sweet onions. I can't begin to express how much I love languages!! I have studied 8 so far (Spanish, French, German, Japanese, Portuguese, Italian, Swedish, and Dutch) and I teach 5 (Spanish, French, German, Portuguese, and Japanese), and want to keep learning new languages throughout the rest of my life. I love to work with students so that's why I've kept my rates low--to make sure more people can have the opportunity to learn these languages. I have a down-to-earth style and I allow my students to guide their own learning in a student-structured, individualized way. As of June 2019, I have taught multiple students different languages, among whom are three students I have been teaching between 7 and 9 months, who have all improved considerably and continue to progress steadily
. I am positive I can help you come to understand the wonderful world that is language and to learn how amazing it is to be able to say the same thing in so many different ways, and how much better it is to be able to communicate with someone in his/her native language instead of having to resort to English. Let's do this!!
Note: I have not had any connectivity problems for quite a while now so be assured that I can provide quality instruction with no issues.
Since I'm absolute beginner in Japanese, I found Paul to be the perfect fit for me. If you are young or adult (me) I would highly recommend taking classes with Paul at least for your beginning classes. I'm sure he would be the perfect fit for you too.
August 10, 2019
I am making amazing progress with Paul as my Instructor! I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to become proficient in Japanese! 5 Stars +!

Hello! My name is Meritxell, but you can call me Meri (easier and shorter)! I was born and raised in Barcelona (Spain), but have been living abroad for the past 7 years (Brazil, US).
During these years living abroad, apart from my job as a pharmacist, I started teaching Spanish classes
as a hobby in spare times and helped colleagues at work and kids to learn and get confident with Spanish.
I recently moved here to Scottsdale (AZ), and I want to continue helping people to gain confidence with Spanish. Is something I love doing! And seeing how people feel when they improve in a foreign language is great!

First of all is important for me to know which are your goals with learning Spanish to be able to adapt the classes to your specific needs. Whether you need Spanish for business, for your kid who is at school or just for the fun of learning a new language and culture, I will adapt the learning to your needs, level and interest topics. I will create a program 100% adapted to your passions and projects. When you learn things with passion, it always seems easier! I will tailor every class to your level, beginner, intermediate or advanced and I will show you key words, expressions, how to build sentences, main differences between both languages and common mistakes.
Español para niños!! / Spanish for kids!!
Is your kid already taking lessons but feels lost and need some tutoring to improve and help him with homework? Or do you want him to start learning Spanish from scratch? My approach when it comes to tutoring Spanish to children is Total Immersion. ). I am married and have two girls (aged 6-8yo) who are bilingual Spanish-English, and also learnt native Portuguese while being in Brazil. So our house is always switching from one language to another, although our main language is Spanish. I have experienced at home total immersion learning since they were born and is the best way to learn a new language, especially for kids who learn things so fast! It has been my experience that we need to make the learning experience fun for kids. The kid will be exposed to the new language and will be able to talk it as a native. I teach Spanish "through playing", which means the kids are engaged in different interactive hands-on and conversational games, which makes it fun for them.
I have taken Spanish classes ever since kindergarten. I passed the AP Spanish test in high school and then went on to obtain my Bachelor's degree in Spanish at Calvin College.
While pursuing my Bachelor's degree, I studied abroad in northern Spain for 6 months. I lived with a host family who only spoke Spanish and, therefore, obtained real-life experience interacting with Spanish-speaking communities.
I am a bilingual (English/Spanish) Speech-Language Pathologist. I graduated with a Master's in Speech-Language Pathology and a Bachelor's in both Spanish and Speech-Language Pathology & Audiology. In addition, I have experience teaching both "English as a second language (ESL)" and "Spanish as a second language (SSL)".
My English and Spanish language students can expect to improve each week on grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, and pragmatics (social use of language). I teach speaking, reading, and writing skills. I am also skilled in organizing and editing papers.
As a professional Speech-Language pathologist, I have excellent teaching and interpersonal skills. I am very patient with my students and love answering questions. My lessons are individualized for each student's goals and preferences. I am here to help you communicate wit
I have studied spanish for over 30 years and taught it for over 10. I speak it daily with native speakers from Venezuela, Puerto Rico, Dominican republic and Spain. My fiance is Venezuelan and I am teaching her english. This is not your typical high school spanish course. With the methods I use, I guarantee you will actually understand the concepts of spanish. One of my former students parents recommended that I give lessons online because of my unique approach. You will learn to speak as a native in a very creative way. I have a curriculum for all ages. I will help you become a successful spanish speaker. Empecemos!!
I am a spanish tutor/teacher with a combined 30 yrs experience in the spanish language. I took my first lesson at 8 yrs old. I am engaged to my beautiful venezuelan fiance who is a native spanish speaker and speaks very little english. I was an assistant tutor at the Cleveland spanish school for 4 yrs. I also volunteered at the local cleveland public libraries assisting in English for spanish speakers here during that time before I became completely independent and started teaching from home or other public venues
I have always had a passion for languages and the world that it opens. I have been able to see some great places, hear and meet great people. It would be a pleasure to help you succeed whether you are a beginner or more advanced and just need to be refreshed.
I have only taken one lesson so far, but Lashon is great. He seems very passionate about the language and teaching. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him.

We feel so lucky to have found this instructor Lashon. Our daughter attends classes 2 day a week for Spanish class. She started last year in the 8th grade and is continuing over the summer. She struggled in the beginning But now she is thriving and love speaking her 2nd language.

By far the best Spanish instructor ever! He takes his time with you, and breaks things down so you could really understand the language. He teaches In a way I can understand when people are speaking, way better than high school classes that only teaches you how to read and write a little bit.
All lessons are tailored to fit students' individual needs and wants. Students learn quick and effectively. Guaranteed results!

No matter your heritage or where you live, speaking Spanish can be a useful skill, with benefits including a better understanding of other cultures, improved ability to think creatively, and more opportunities in the future. By starting with your kids when they are just toddlers, children are likely to pick up the language and remember it when they are older.
There are several ways you can make Spanish for kids fun, by incorporating it into all sorts of daily activities and games. Here are …
