I've had 3 classes with Kelly and they've been great. Her method is fun, engaging and I look forward to continuing. I've tried several self-study options without success, whereas Kelly's teaching methods keep me engaged. She uses techniques I didn't know existed and I'm not just memorizing pages of words. As an adult learner, I have finally found a great option to learn Spanish.

Ann Arbor, MI

I have a deep knowledge of Spanish grammar, orthography and syntax. My pronunciation is very clear. I make difficult things look easy. If you want to develop conversational Spanish in short time (understanding many people with different accents), I have the methodology for you to be fluent in Spanish.

About Gregorio
My name is Gregorio M. I am a native speaker of Spanish with a very clear pronunciation. I am a Spanish instructor at Washtenaw Community College. I have a degree in chemistry and a master degree in environmental chemistry.
I have been working as a Spanish tutor in the Ann Arbor area since 2009.
I can teach you all aspects of Spanish language: listening comprehension, pronunciation, reading capacity and analysis, writing, grammar rules, slang and colloquial Spanish, academic Spanish, conversational fluency. Additionally, I could give you, if you are interested, information about Hispanic culture and customs, and more.
You can ask me anything about Spanish and get an explanation. If you ask me "Why do people say this or that in Spanish?", you will get a reasonable answer. I'm not one of those teachers who say "It's just because it's lik
e that in Spanish".

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

As a former high school language teacher, I know how to make language learning fun, interactive, and effective. We will have a great time together learning Spanish, French, or Portuguese! I will give you the confidence you need to go out and continue speaking. I will also give you great tips to practice your language easily between our lessons.

About Jennifer
Hola! I am a former high school teacher who has traveled around the world learning languages. I have lived in Guatemala, El Salvador, France, and most recently Brazil. I attended UC Berkeley where I graduated Summa Cum Laude in Foreign Languages and Latin American studies.

As a teacher, I taught middle and high school Spanish, English and some French. I always incorporate conversation, games, and speaking activities so you get great practice.

I am a poet, currently working on publishing my first book. I am also a certified yoga and zumba teacher. I love cooking elaborate meals, running, hiking, and learning new languages. Next stop: Hebrew and Italian!

I recently had the privilege of witnessing Jennifer share her passion for teaching Spanish with her high school students in Oakland. The lesson she offered was extremely FUN, lively and very engaging. The warmth and welcome she exuded towards her students was obvious from the moment she greeted them at the door. Throughout the lesson they explored existing Spanish songs and used their creativity and their own skill in the language to explore new lyrics. It was evident that Jennifer met each of them at the level they were at as well as pushing them the right amount to keep expanding their knowledge of the language. I highly recommend this teacher and am continuously amazed by her ability to maintain and share fluid language skills in such unique settings.

Jenny is a fun, enthusiastic teacher with many years of experience teaching Spanish. I gained much needed confidence in my Spanish speaking abilities and expanded my vocabulary, as we practiced having day-to-day conversations. She cares a lot about her students' progress and will check in with how we are meeting personal goals.

Want to learn to speak Spanish super quickly?

Learning how to speak Spanish will help you communicate with the millions of Spanish-speakers in the US and Latin America. It will also help improve your memory and help you make friends more easily.

I've been helping people learn Spanish over the course of the last 15 years. In terms of my personal background, I'm from Venezuela, I've worked at Google and Amazon, and I have been in the education field for 10 years. Feel free to reach out if you'd like to see whether we're a good match!

About Daniel
My passion is helping people learn new skills. Nothing gets me more excited than seeing someone improve in something that I know will enhance their life.

In terms of my personality and teaching style, I'm very relaxed and make learning really fun--that's part of what enables learning to be effective!

In terms of my experience, I've been an educator for the last 10 years. I have also worked in education at Google, Amazon, and other well-known companies and won several awards for my educational strategies (E3 scholar, South by Southwest Scholar, Design, Art, Technology Award, Hermes Creative Award, and more). In terms of education, it's a BA from Brown University, a Master's from Carnegie Mellon, and an MBA from Wharton.

So... let's get to the things I love teaching most!

PIANO
I've been playing piano for 25+ years. When I first
started learning, I really struggled to motivate myself to practice, so I understand many of the challenges that beginners face when they take up the instrument. It's not easy! However, I've learned some strategies that make practicing fun and effective. I love motivating individuals to accomplish things they could only dream of. My particular specialty is helping people learn how to improvise and compose their own music. By being able to improvise, you'll be able to not only WOW your friends and family, but also have a greater appreciation and understanding of all the music you hear. You'll naturally also get better at music theory, and--once you're good--you'll have a feeling of satisfaction that is incredible.

SPANISH
Quieres hablar Español? Having learned four languages and taught many in the past, I've crafted a particular style for teaching people languages that takes into account the way that humans learn languages naturally. We'll converse and read about all your interests so that you can really enjoy it. It's really fun and you'll get to speak very quickly!
