I am proficient in Spanish and completed three years of study. As a substitute teacher I have taught Spanish classes on several occasions. As a professional tutor, I have helped individual students learn Spanish.

"Great tutor."
- Gerald G.Cibolo, TX on 6/19/13

Tim was an excellent tutor for my teenage son. He was always on time for their tutoring sessions, very accomendating to our busy schedule, and was very patient with my student. Tim adjusted and flexed to my son's tutoring needs. Tim changed channels and assisted with English as well as with Spanish as my son's studying needs dictated. He challenged my son and taught him how to determine the answer; he did not just give my son the answers. My student received fantastic scores on his homework and tests after studying with Tim. My son and I are very pleased with Tim as a tutor; I think you will be, too. We recommend Tim to meet your tutoring needs.

Reading and writing skills, grammar, pronunciation, vocabulary will also be addressed as needed.I teach conversational Spanish, SAT subject test in Spanish, CLEP Spanish, AP Spanish language.Within a few lessons you will feel I have the age-appropriate resources, games and creative ideas to instill your love for learning Spanish and getting to know the Spanish culture.

You can expect to begin speaking in Spanish from our very first lesson! My classes are student-centered, offering you a focus on your interests and goals, which is very different from a group class. So, by the time you travel or apply for a job with perks for bilingual people, you'll have plenty to say!

I help adults increase their adventure (travel) or improve job security by becoming more fully fluent.

For children, I've tutored both private and public school students. I look forward to helping parents have a break from the stresses of parenthood! During my classes of 30 minutes or a full hour, parents can rest/talk to a friend/decompress! Ask me about options (45-minute classes, in-person classes on a patio or at a park) or for references!

Orville makes learning Spanish a fun experience. An engaging teacher, he combines his love of teaching with humor and insights on the culture. I’m enjoying both studying a new language and working with Orville - it’s like learning with s good friend.
Brigitte
Orville is a wonderful teacher and brings the language alive for you as you learn together over zoom. He explains so much of why things are said a certain way, things that you just can't get from a language app. It's the best hour of the week! Highly recommend him for all levels.

I have lived in Spain more than 20 years, I am a native Spanish speaker. I studied all my youth and finished High School there in Spain. Later on I graduated from the University of North Texas obtaining my Bachelor of Arts in Music and a Minor in Spanish. I taught Spanish at IALE International School of Valencia for a year and then obtained my Teaching Certification in Spanish in Texas this year. I can teach grammar, how to write the language correctly, correct pronunciation, conversation and all related to this beautiful language. I like teaching all ranges of age. I have experience teaching very beginners up to adults.

If you have a lot of knowledge about the language but you want to improve your speaking in a higher level, or you need to learn it for your job or business I am the one to speak with! I will take your Spanish to a HIGHER LEVEL!

If you are asking yourself if it is the same language than the Latin American Spanish, yes, it is the same. The only differences are based ...

My lessons are very interactive. I teach using sentences and phrases that relate to your personal or professional needs. We start with a simple conversation that builds up as much as it is comfortable for you. The goal is that you can apply the material immediately. During each session, we go from conversation to reading and writing (just like when you learned your first language). I have been teaching Spanish to children and adults for over 6 years and ESL for over 10 years. Let's get started!

About Nayeli

Learn Spanish with a native speaker! My lessons are engaging and useful (watch my videos). A lesson would typically start with the oral practice of a simple phrase. First, we learn the vocabulary, think about practical uses, practice reading; and finally, writing. All classes are adapted to your goa

"Ana exceeded my expectations of a Spanish tutor. My goal was to speak Spanish well enough to effectively and confidently communicate with residents of small towns in northern Spain while on a planned two week vacation. Ana was the perfect choice. She is fluent in English and that enables her to teach the important nuances of Spanish. She is organized, punctual and sincerely interested in helping me learn proper pronunciation and grammar. She uses various teaching aides that allowed me to apply the lessons using practical exercises. All the individual lessons were on Skype which is a very effective way to learn and maintain interest throughout the one hour lessons.

Ana admits that Spanish is not an easy language and supported my many errors with patience, encouragement and good humor. I highly recommend Ana if you want to improve your chances of learning Spanish.
