Grammar and conversations skills for beginner and intermediate students.
I teach Spanish and English. I've been teaching English for more than 20 years and Spanish for 8 years. I like to focus my classes on students needs. The most important is to make them feel comfortable and motivated. I use a lot of vocabulary, shown with drawings or materials to show examples. My goal is to make students speak the language in a very natural and easy way.

About Vania
I've always been attracted to the rewarding profession of teaching. I've been teaching for the last 20 years and it's been such a privilege to be a positive part of all my students' stories. As a result, I have built life-long, lasting connections with my students. My professional bio and education qualifications include:

• Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science

• Private and public Spanish Instructor
I teach beginning to advanced-level Spanish to persons of all ages. Books, media, dictionaries, age-appropriate games, and flash cards are the materials used for instruction. Students are assessed with oral and written quizzes.

• A variety of certificates of training and teaching, in the realm of Overseas Language Instruction in English and Spanish, Teaching Orientation

Vania is an excellent Spanish instructor

I've taken many Spanish lessons that have ranged from various software programs to personal tutors. Vania is great. She knows how to relate with each person in order to convey concepts. She's the best I have worked with.

She's also very accommodating, since I tend to change my schedule around a lot. She is always flexible to accommodate. Vania is simply great.

I have been learning Spanish for almost 10 years, and have been lucky enough to study abroad in Spain, where I took immersive language and culture classes. I took advanced literature classes and lived with a host family where I practiced using my Spanish daily. I am adept in Spanish grammar and verb conjugations and can also help with conversation skills.

About Janis
Hi there! I'm Janis, a recent graduate from the University of Southern California. While at USC, I studied neuroscience, but beyond my science curriculum, I took many literature and music classes.
I love learning about all types of topics and people, and I want to bring this energy to my students. From a very young age, I have loved creating lesson plans for my younger siblings. This developed into more formal tutoring and mentoring roles through middle school, high school, and college.
I have experience teaching everything from beginner piano to young children, to science presentation skills to international teaching assistants.
Using passion, compassion, and a positive energy, I would love to help you achieve your learning goals! :)

Our 5 y.o. daughter just took her first lesson with Janis and she much enjoyed the lesson. Our daughter is excited to learn to play the piano and Janis made the lesson fun and enjoyable. Our daughter is off to an excellent start with Janis. Janis left homework for our daughter until she returns for the next lesson. We are very pleased with Janis. She is very pleasant and patient and our daughter much enjoys her company.

We moved recently to LA from London and Janis is a fantastic teacher. My two boys are very much enjoying their lessons now and even practice without me having to ask. She discovered how best to motivate each child and customized her approach. Janis is much better than the previous two teachers in London.

Depending on your current level of proficiency, we will tailor a program for you that will take advantage of your existing skills and reinforce them while at the same time, concentrate on those areas (reading, writing, conversation) that you feel need improvement or will be most useful to you. Some knowledge of grammar is essential but the major emphasis will be made on those skills that you feel you will require most often. We will build on the structural foundations and give you those skills.

About Guillermo
My name is Guillermo Ferrero and I have been teaching since 1989, when while working in Geneva, Switzerland, I had colleagues from many countries around the world. I began teaching English and Spanish to those colleagues who wished to acquire a working knowledge of either language. I helped these co-workers acquire skills in Spanish or English according to their needs as well as some grammatical skills to help them gain proficiency in these languages.
I graduated from the University of Essex in England, in 1979 with a BA in Literature and obtained an MBA from the University of Miami in 1989. As an undergraduate, I studied Art History, philology and World History, which helped me gain broader insights on various cultures, their literature and history. I used these insights together with the skillset acquired in the MBA program to enhance
the scope of subjects I teach, adding skills such as the use of applications like MS Office Suite to offer students a broader range of information.

Harrisonburg, VA

I am an engaging and funny teacher of Spanish with almost twenty years of teaching experience from middle school through the university level. I incorporate many different games, strategies, and cultural contextual materials in order to help students master grammar, idioms, and vocabulary to help them to meet their goals.

About Rachel
I have a PhD in Russian and a BA in Spanish. I have taught both languages at many levels, from middle school through to graduate school. As a college student I lived and worked in Moscow, Russia as a security guard at the US Embassy, where I learned lots of unusual vocabulary in Russian related to items that could be picked up by the metal detector. I have also spent time studying and conducting research in Siberia and in St. Petersburg, Russia. I have lived, studied and traveled throughout Mexico, and taught public school Spanish and French for two years prior to graduate school. I am originally from Virginia, and before I started studying Russian in high school, I was planning to be a professional classical pianist. I live in Central Virginia now with my husband and our adorable but very demanding English bulldog, Lou. I am a member and
the Conference Manager for the American Association of Teachers of Slavic and East European Languages, and have taught Russian at the University of Richmond, the University of Virginia, Northern Virginia Community College, and Ferrum College. I regularly publish and present research at conferences in the field of Russian language teaching as well. I am a kind and merciful teacher, but require commitment and dedication from my students. You WILL learn from me, but you have to work too!
