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!

Andy embodies all that a good teacher should be. He mixes the art of emotional connection to the science. After 5 hours teaching sessions with Andy, and without having any prior knowledge on accounting, I felt confident in the fundamentals. He is excellent in helping someone thoroughly understand the subject matter. He is patient, flexible and highly professional and I would highly recommend Andy to anyone seeking a tutor.

I know how hard it was for me to become fluent in English. I learned the basic stuff from school & books, but it wasn't until I figured out that I needed to mimic other people's sounds, gestures and memorize sentences that I could later use during a conversation. My classes will give you the opportunity to learn conversational Spanish. We can talk about the day to day stuff and make it fun!

About Stephanie

This is a conversational class in Spanish. You can ask me questions, we can talk about different topics and I'll make sure it's fun and worth your time and money. I'm originally from Ecuador and grew up taking 1-2 hrs of English every day at school. My family decided to move to the US when I was 16

If you are interested in learning the Russian language, correcting your pronunciation or spelling, learning how to read, or improving your understanding then there’s no better way to do it than to learn from a native speaker.

I am a native Russian speaker and fluent in English. I have lived in the United States for over 20 years. Having over 20 years of experience teaching Russian I am flexible in adjusting my teaching style and homework to each of my student's individual needs. I have experience with students of diverse ages, backgrounds, and language proficiency levels.

Why do most of us want to learn a language? Probably because we want to communicate with other people in it.

We often teach language through a set of grammar rules and vocabulary lists you need to recite with a teacher.

How effective is this teaching? My answer is not very much. I’ve been learning English for 12 years, through my middle school, high school, and college years. It became meaningful only ...
