I majored in Spanish at UC Davis, lived in Mexico for 3 years where I completed a Master's degree in Counseling, studied Spanish Literature and Psychology at the University of Costa Rica for 7 months and have traveled around a few other Latin American Countries.

I can do conversation classes and academic ones too. I have a lot of material and activities to facilitate fun learning. My command of the language is almost native. I prefer to work with those who really want to learn, just so we both use our time wisely. I work best with those who already have a base on Spanish but want to prefect their grammar, vocabulary, conjugation, listening and overall language skills.

About Jason N.
¡Hola! ¡Bienvenido! Hello and Welcome!

my name's Jason and I love Spanish and Latin America.

I'm currently a doctoral student. I majored in Spanish at University of California, Davis, lived in Mexico for 3 years where I completed a Master's degree in Counseling, studied Spanish Literature and Psychology at the University of Costa Rica for 7 months and have traveled around a few other Latin American Countries.

My goal is to tailor the lessons to what best helps you learn. I can do conversation classes and academic ones too. I have a lot of material and activities to facilitate fun learning. My command of the language is almost native. I prefer to work with those who really want to learn, just so we both use our time wisely. I work best with those who already have a base in Spanish but want to prefect their knowledge of proverbs
, sayings, jokes, cultural aspects of Spanish, grammar, vocabulary, conjugation, listening and overall language skills. That said, I can work with anyone at any level of Spanish, and have experiences with students from ages 5 to 67.

Jason inspired me to have a break-through with my Spanish. As a nurse with many Hispanic patients, after only 3 classes with Jason, I successfully triage'd a patient using almost all Spanish. I was pretty stoked about the whole thing. It was a really good confidence boost to not only use it and be understood by the lady, but I understood her too. Not every little word, mind you, but I was able to pick out a lot of the context and figure out what was going on. Working with Jason makes me feel like I'm opening up a whole new avenue in my practice, even after 15 years of repetition. I have Jason to thank for this and it's just boosted me towards learning more.

Jason is a quality Spanish teacher. Not only does he have a native command of the language (as verified by my Latino co-worker), but Jason is also a skilled language instructor. Two attributes of Jason that I particularly value are his attention to detail and the way he highlights language patterns to facilitate learning. It is evident that Jason has a huge passion for teaching Spanish.

I've been teaching Spanish for five years and my students have gone on to speaking and writing. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to understand the language and as time goes on you'll be able to speak and write it; your grades will go up. I specialize in pronunciation and writing, typically use Spanish Now books, and have the following tools available for your lessons:cd's,videos and music. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

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'm a high school Spanish teacher with a BA in Spanish and MA in education. I've lived in México and Argentina for three months in each place.
I am a fully credentialed Spanish teacher with experience teaching lower to upper levels of Spanish including a Spanish for Spanish Speakers class.
I have been tutoring for three years. If you're a little outside of my traveling radius, contact me and I may be willing go farther and/or meet you somewhere.

Not only have I studied Spanish, but I have also lived in Peru and Mexico for a several years, as well as traveled extensively around Latin America, gaining complete fluency. In addition to Basic, Intermediate, and Advanced Conversational Spanish, I also teach Spanish for Healthcare Professionals.

About Jackie
Hi! My name is Jackie, and I have nearly 20 years of experience in teaching. All of my students, meaning a perfect 100%, have improved their grades by at least one letter grade, if not more, and passed every one of their tests and exams. I help all my students reach their goals.

The feedback I often receive from my students is that I made learning an enjoyable experience—they want to work harder to advance quickly in their classes. All of my students agree that I have a lot of patience and turn even the most challenging lessons into ones of positivity and encouragement. I provide critical feedback in the most constructive of ways that help the students reach conclusions on their own. I enjoy being there to support and guide their experience.

Basically, I love teaching. I'm enthusiastic yet patient, and I absolutely adore helping kid
s and adults alike learn. It's such a sense of accomplishment when my students show off their terrific grades. I see the same look in my students’ eyes regardless of age—that pride that shines from within, that exuberant smile, like they can conquer anything. I want my students to keep that pride for a long, long time.

Right now, I’m working on self-publishing a Spanish conversation textbook for beginning students and am writing an intermediate-level Spanish conversation textbook. I've also written several academic articles published online. When I’m not teaching, I enjoy traveling, playing with my cat, and swimming.

I am a native Spanish speaker, born and raised in Mexico. All levels and ages are welcome!
Learning a new language and culture could be intimidating, that's why I work and adapt to your pace! You can choose if you want to take it slow and start from the basics or if you want to get going and start practicing your conversation skills right away!
Everyone has a different learning style, different background, goals or situations; I like to customize my lessons depending on my students' needs, this way I can make sure the class will be interesting, engaging, and fun for everyone despite their age. Ready to start speaking Spanish? Contact me today!

About Azalea
Welcome! My name is Azalea, I grew up in Mexico and I am fluent in both English and Spanish. I hold a Master's degree and I have been teaching since 2012. Some of my classroom settings include private lessons, group lessons, summer camps, online lessons, among others. I have experience working with students of all ages and backgrounds such as children, adults, college students, working parents, etc.

I believe it is important for students to be emerged in the language they are learning. For this reason, I like to encourage my students to practice in and outside our lessons as much as possible by speaking, listening, and reading in Spanish. Every single student is different and they all have very different learning techniques; therefore, I personalize my lesson plans to fit my students' needs, learning style, and interests. Plus, the mos
t important part of the learning process is to have fun and to enjoy ourselves every lesson!

Our background or language should never be a reason to feel disconnected from others, like our own family, friends, or colleagues. So if you are looking to learn Spanish for work, school, or just for fun, you are in the right place! I would love to help you conquer your goals and guide you in your Spanish journey!

Thank you for stopping by and please let me know if you have any questions, I can't wait to meet you!

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.

About Carlos
I have been a language teacher for more than 24 years. I have a B.A. in English Language and Literature and my curriculum includes several subjects related to Spanish grammar, composition, phonetics and literature, so apart from being my native language (I am Cuban) I have the necessary academic knowledge to teach Spanish to speakers of other languages.

I have worked mainly with adults in colleges and language schools. At the university level I worked with students from different professional interests, so I am familiar with teaching the language for specific academic skills. I have also tutored individual adults and teenagers. At present I am also teaching children in an after school program.

In my teaching I favor the communicative approach with meaningful exchanges and with a solid foundation on the formal aspects of the langua
ge too. I also pay attention to individual needs so that students can progress at their own pace.

At the intermediate and advanced levels I favor the use of meaningful discussions and debate about updated issues, so that the students can learn how to express their true opinions and ideas properly in different contexts.

I believe in fostering a friendly atmosphere and making the teaching experience a meaningful human exchange.
