I studied Spanish and lived in Ecuador for a year where I volunteered at a school and edited a Spanish textbook. I can help beginning and intermediate students with speaking, reading, writing and grammar. I promise to make your Spanish classes interesting and fun. If you would like to study Spanish literature or film we can incorporate those into our lessons. I love the Spanish language and would be happy to help you achieve Spanish proficiency while cultivating a love for the language. I offer a free consultation to discuss Spanish lessons.

About Marie
I have been an educator for more than ten years. In that time, I've taught and tutored English, Language Arts and Spanish to students from elementary to PhD level. I also help students study for the SAT, ACT and TOEFL tests and coach students through the college and graduate school application process. I love teaching and learning. I am patient, enthusiastic and dedicated to my students.

My teaching philosophy can be summed up in a few words : learning should be fascinating, individualized and fun. Helen Keller said, “ A well-educated mind will always have more questions than answers.” My goal is to help my students ask the questions that will lead them to deeper understanding. The poet Mark Van Doreen said, “The art of teaching is the art of assisting discovery.” In our lessons, I will help you make discoveries that will inspire you
to keep learning.

When I’m not teaching, I love reading, exploring the California coast, writing poetry and singing loudly.

I beleive that anyone can be successful at learning a new language. I am new to professional tutoring, but I have spent the last several years of my life not only studying Spanish in High School and College, but also studying independently, and learning by immersion in Mexico (18 months).
During that time, I have learned a lot about how to effectively learn a language, and I have enjoyed the opportunities I have had to mentor people along the way. I would love to work with anyone, whether you are struggling in class, preparing to go abroad, or even needing some help practicing the basics to help you stand out in your profession.
We can create a plan to help you get from where you are to where you hope to be.

About Ashlee
Hi all! A little bit about myself:

Since a service trip to Nicaragua that I went on in High School, I have been passionate about learning Spanish. I had taken Spanish classes in High School previously, but once I decided to make it my own personal mission to learn Spanish, I sought out every resource I could find and took every opportunity I could get my hands on in order to independently study and practice.

Right after graduation, I accepted an assignment from my church to serve as a missionary in Mexico. This was basically a dream come true for me. For 18 months, I lived in and around Mexico City and was blessed with the opportunity to interact with native speakers all day every day (October 2013 to April 2015).

During that time, not only did I become more motivated to improve my Spanish, but I also developed a love for teaching Eng
lish. So many people who I interacted with were eager for opportunities to practice and learn my native toungue. I tried my best to teach and practice English with them as much as I could, and I found it to be extremely fulfilling.

Since being back in the US, I have gotten married, had a baby, and studied to be a Spanish/English interpreter. I am excited for this opportunity to be a Spanish and ESL tutor at this time so that I can continue pursuing my passion and sharing it with others!

Please feel free to send me a message if you have any questions!

¡Saludos! I am a native Spanish speaker with a BA in Spanish and Master's coursework in Education. As a classroom teacher for 12 years and a tutor for 6 years, my experience ranges from Dual-Immersion in Spanish at elementary, middle, and high school level. I want to improve your skills in conversational language, grammar, vocabulary, or Advanced Placement Exams! ¡Vamos!

About Estela
My first language was Spanish, then I formally took and passed the AP Spanish exam in high school. I pursued a bachelor's degree in Spanish Literature and then moved on to teach Dual Immersion in Spanish at the Elementary Level. My fluency also extends to culture. By traveling to Spanish speaking countries I bring added experiences to you!

Students can expect a variety of teaching techniques to improve grammar, conjugating verbs, and tips for vocabulary retention. For AP Spanish exams in Literature and Language, I find that non-native speakers benefit from verbal practice. My background in teaching special education children also helps me quickly identify areas of need. If you are looking to improve your conversational Spanish, then I have fun and creative ways to enhance your practice.

Let's start where you are and improve from
there. My passion for words is my first love! I look forward to any questions (preguntas) that you may have.

Do you want to learn to speak one of the most important languages in the world? There are approximately 480 million native level Spanish speakers in the world today, therefore, learning Spanish can open you up to a world of new possibilities. I have experience teaching Spanish to people of all ages ranging from beginner to advanced levels. I use a very communicative approach when teaching because I think that is the best way to stimulate the mind for language learning.

I love talking with people about a wide range of subjects which means there will never be a dull moment in one of my classes. I'm very flexible with my lessons and my classes can be adapted to my student's needs whether they are preparing for an exam, learning Spanish for fun, or trying to better there communication skills. I'm also available for strictly conversational classes for more advanced students who would like to work on their pronunciation and fluency. I can create custom packages that will accommodate your

About Jorge
I am a native Spanish speaker from Nicaragua who loves to talk about a vast amount of topics, meaning there will always be something interesting to talk about in my classes.

I studied civil engineering at the National University of Engineering in Managua, Nicaragua. Since I was a child I greatly admired the dedication and patience of my teachers in while teaching students many different subjects. At an early age I realized that there was great potential in me to teach, my first teaching experience was in high school when I taught a group of people older than me to read and write for the very first time. At that time I could feel the magic and pride when people could read and write for the first time, that feeling is what has motivated me since that day to want to teach. My great interest in cultures and languages has made my interest i
n teaching grow even more. I learned English to be able to communicate in a more open way and have the opportunity to teach my language and be able to talk about my culture.

I have had the opportunity to teach Spanish as a second language to many groups of English speaking missionaries, to be a part of someone learning Spanish and be able to see them communicate without the need of a translator, it is something that fills me with a lot of pride.

Every student is a new opportunity to inspire and improve a life. I look forward to that every day.

Jorge is one of the best teachers that I've ever worked with. He is great at explaining topics in a way that is very easy to understand. His classes are always fun as he always has topics to talk about that catch your interest. I had multiple Spanish teachers before Jorge and I learned more with Jorge in a matter of a few months than I did with any of the other teachers combined over 2 years. I would highly recommend Jorge to anyone looking to learn Spanish whether you are a beginner or more advanced.
