About Clifford
'Dr. Cliff,' a part-time college/university professor, teacher and tutor with 5 master's and 3 doctoral degrees in a variety of topics: Mathematics, Computer Information Systems, Computer Science, Management Information Systems, MBA, Leadership, Education and Administration. He has always used proven educational techniques to instruct undergraduate students, graduate students and school children/teenagers (K-12).

Dr. Cliff believes that, although many professors and teachers do an admirable job in the classroom, many students
and children do not learn well in traditional institutions. Many students and children don't respond to the assembly line nature of most institutions. He believes that a student's or child's strengths and natural abilities need to be the foundation of learning. Dr. Cliff often warns against a "cookie cutter" approach to educating students, teenagers and children. You or your child is seen as an individual, and natural strengths are identified and built upon. Therefore, individual one-on-one tutoring or help is the key approach to each student who has any challenges difficulties in a given subject.

In today’s environment and economic challenges, with shorter budgets for the education, larger classes sizes and pressure of performing well in all kind of standard tests, I often see many students lacking true knowledge and skills in a given subject, since they cannot get individualized attention during the class session. That’s where a tutor comes into the picture, not only uncover major “holes” in students’ knowledge set but also teach students how to study, how to learn and through proper guidance “fill” those knowledge and skills holes.

Hola, cómo estás? I am a certified native teacher. I was born in Madrid, Spain (Europe), and I live in California since 2014. I love teaching, and have all my life. I know how to teach you Spanish in the best way, with funny and effective classes, with patience, and with speaking slowly and clearly. You will learn the best proper pronunciation, our customs and our expressions. You will be able to speak with expressions, accent, emphasys and more different options of the language that only can be taught by natives teachers.
We will learn by enjoying and practicing, through one to one conversation, exercises, repetitions and homework.
Should be great as well to do lessons with 2 students . It is cheaper and works really really good.

Nos vemos ! :)

Saludos, Javier

Spanish is fun. That is my approach to teaching the language and culture. My teaching experience has been centered in High School Spanish from beginners level-AP Spanish Literature (high passing rate on final exam). I have also worked with children in elementary and middle school level. In addition to college level Spanish tutoring experience, I have also worked with adults, who just wanted to brush up on conversational for travel, pleasure, or business. "Aprende, practica y logra tu objetivo"

About Catalina
Loving what I do is what makes me an effective and popular Spanish Teacher/Tutor. As a Native Speaker of the target language, I had to learn English. Having had that experience, has helped me to relate to the difficulty involved in language acquisition and to become more compassionate with my students and their needs.
I have been teaching / tutoring successfully for over 15 years now. I have worked with students from elementary school - college level ( Undergrad/Grad). I have a Certificate in AP Spanish Literature, which is the highest level of High School Spanish. I have also worked with adults who wanted to increase their knowledge of the language and culture for both leisure and business reasons.
Keeping in mind the needs and goals of my students, each class is designed to cater to the individual's needs. !Buena Suerte con su
aprendizaje del idioma!

I have taken lessons with Ronald since I was 6, I am now 23. In my 17 years of taking lessons I have learned to play piano, sing and am proficient in music theory. In the more recent years I have even had the opportunity to teach music through Ronald. Throughout the years, I have experienced and witnessed the patience and kindness Ronald consistently shows his students. He encourages his students to become better and shares in their enthusiasm due to their accomplishments. Ronald genuinely cares about his students and is dedicated to making sure his students improve. I fully recommend Ronald for students who have parents who want to be involved in the learning process and especially for young children who are just starting out. Ronald works well with families, includes parents every step of the way and is very patient with young students helping them learn in an open and encouraging environment.

Mr.Chaz is really dedicated to his profession. He started to teach my seven year old son over one year ago and he has motivated him to sing his best and he started piano with him last year which has been a phenomenal experience for my son. Chaz really focuses on the detail, theory and groundwork necessary to excel in music. If you are lucky enough to get your child started with him you will never regret the experience. He is simply the best! My son sings all the time now and loves to play piano. I am so happy for my son to have found someone to expand on his talents!

After graduating the University of Rochester with a degree in Spanish Language and Literature, I moved to Madrid, Spain to teach English for two years. After those two years, I worked as a Spanish teacher at Kent Denver School, teaching levels 2, 3, and 5. I have lived/studied in both Ecuador and Spain. I am new to Los Angeles, but I'm not new to teaching, and there's nothing I love more than spreading my passion for the Spanish language!

About Ann
Hi!
I'm Ann, and I just recently moved to Los Angeles from Denver, Colorado where I'm originally from.
The past few years have been a whirlwind of experiences that have helped me become the foreign language teacher I am today! In college I studied Spanish and studied abroad in both Ecuador and Spain. After graduating, I moved to Madrid to become a high school/middle school English teacher, and I lived there for two years. Unfortunately, my visa expired so I had to return back to Colorado. I was lucky enough to work at my old high school in Denver as a lead Spanish teacher for levels 2, 3, and 5. After working there for a year, I decided I wanted to do some more traveling. I went back to Ecuador, then Cuba, and then I returned to Spain for 3 months to take a Spanish Teacher Certification course through the Instituto de Cervantes. After tr
aveling for the past 6 months, I've decided it's time to move to Los Angeles!
I like to stay current with popular culture in the States and abroad, and I love listening to Spanish music. While I have mostly lived abroad in Spain, I do my best to stay current with slang and grammar styles from all over the Spanish speaking world. I aim to make my lessons fun, dynamic, and I focus on teaching practical, useful Spanish that you will find in your everyday life.
Thanks for reading!
