Private Spanish Teacher

I have been teaching for 24 years. My teaching style focuses on communication and exchange from the beginning with a solid foundation on the formal aspects too. I favor individual differences and the student's own pace of learning. Debate and discussion are an important part of my teaching style in the intermediate and advanced levels.
I favor a friendly atmosphere with meaningful exchange throughout my lessons.

Private Spanish Teacher

I've taught Spanish for several years now. Not only have I studied Spanish myself, but I lived in Peru and Mexico for several years, as well as traveled extensively around Latin America, gaining complete fluency. With a focus on conversational Spanish, I offer Basic (A1), Pre-Intermediate (A2), and Intermediate (B1 & B2). You will be able to have a full conversation in Spanish by the end of your first lesson!

I have a joy for the Spanish language and the culture & history of Spain. Taking Spanish-lessons through me will not be easy. I am challenging teacher that don't believe in the easy fluffy lessons that you typically get in school. I believe in hard work and study. Depending on your experience level, lessons will be taught in the Spanish language, with the goal of being totally 100% immersed. As a result, you will find yourself becoming more and more fluent.

Melissa is a miracle worker! My mother-in-law moved to the United States 40 years ago unable to speak english and while she has done a good job at learning on her own, she had significant gaps in her ability to effectively communicate. For her 68th birthday, I bought her lessons with Melissa. My mother-in-law told me I was wasting my money because she couldn't learn anything new. Well, needless to say, she can learn and with Melissa's excellent tutelage has dramatically increased her ability to speak and comprehend english. This has enabled a new level of confidence and freedom that she did not previously have and is a game changer for her. I attribute her improvement directly to Melissa's ability to understand her student's needs and personalities and craft and deliver a quality, tailored curriculum. After our first round of classes, my mother-in-law is excited to continue the lessons and has a renewed curiosity and interest in learning. Great job and thank you Melissa!!!
Kari Bardowell
Melissa has a lovely calming personality. She made us feel completely at ease while learning a foreign language. She was prepared and tailored the lesson for our specific goals and level.

She displayed an expert knowledge of the language, but was still able to teach beginners. Plus we could tell she really loved Portuguese.

The online format was great. Cant wait for the next lesson.
Darci
Melissa is the best! Extremely knowledgeable and patient with her students. I highly recommend her.

Online Spanish Teacher

I first heard Spanish from my dad who's Colombian, so my lessons focus on communication via dynamic task-based activities! First you discover grammar functions & the meaning of vocab through simple comprehension activities. Then we practice these new items through conversation questions or communication activities that simulate real-life tasks like ordering food, asking for directions, or describing a person. This creates a fun atmosphere for learning and gives students ample opportunities to speak! I also like to use multimedia like videos, pictures and powerpoints to make lessons more interactive, especially online lessons! For beginners, I use the book Spanish Demystified or Easy Spanish Step by Step as a learning resource and to provide grammar homework.

Besides speaking, my lessons also cover the other aspects of a language: Reading, writing and listening comprehension. I target those skills with activities such as short readings & writing assignments for homework, and themed ...

About Christy

I was exposed to Spanish throughout my childhood from my dad who is from Colombia, and from my great Spanish teachers. After minoring in it at college, I perfected my fluency from living in Spain for 2 years and studying it for 18 years! My adventures with the language led me to pursue an MA in Spa

I need some patience for sure because I'm SO self critical I can block my own progress. Christy is great, patient and so far, is bringing my conversational spanish out of its shell.
Miles
I appreciate her willingness to accommodate me and my schedule and, although I have only had 1 lesson so far, can feel that I am already growing in knowledge and confidence. I really like that she gives me assignments I can work on between lessons so that I can make the most of my lesson time with her.

Sol is a VERY gifted teacher—I have studied with her for years and feel so fortunate to have had her expert instruction. She pays attention to every aspect of the dance and makes sure you get the basics while pushing you to do more. I love her choreography. She is also an extremely talented dancer.

Sol is such an amazing teacher, her classes are passionate, fun and of course educational. She also gives students the opportunity to perform with live musicians and even if you are a beginner, you feel like you are already a flamenco dancer. She is the best teacher in New York.

Sol is a fabulous, top-notch instructor. She is very passionate about the dance and has the ability to make one feel as if they must start taking classes once they see her perform.
