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!

From my lessons, students will gain engaging and exciting instruction. Students will use Spanish every time we meet. My aim is to help you meet your goals and help you enjoy it along the way!

About Jimmy
My name is Jimmy. I have been teaching Spanish for about five years now. I have taught all ages from kindergarten to adults.

As a current teacher, my primary goal is to make sure the students have engaging and fun experiences while learning Spanish. I do not lecture solely on the nuts and bolts of the language but rather allow the student to perform the language in order to learn it.

I do want to make clear that I do teach young children (ages 2-12) but I prefer to teach them in person and at least twice a week. I believe the experience to be more valuable that way.

Additionally, I ask that you and I talk for a while before signing up for lessons with me. I may not be able the person to give you what you need. I want to be sure your needs are met through Take Lessons and I may not be the person that can do that. So, please mess
age me often.

I am always excited to teach someone this language I love so much.

¡Gracias!

Whether you want to to get an A+ on your next Spanish test, become more comfortable with traveling to foreign Spanish-speaking countries, or just connect with people and art using the second most commonly spoken world language, you've come to
the right place! I have been studying Spanish for the last 7 years of my life, and on top of that am currently working on bachelors degrees in both Anthropology and Linguistics, as well as an associates degree in Spanish and a nationally recognized translator's certification. Let me know if your ready to take the next steps towards fluency!

About Liam
I am currently a college student working on a double major (Anthropology and Linguistics", a minor (Spanish), and a Spanish to English Translators certificate. I am fascinated with language learning and do it daily, it may sound odd but it is actually one of my favorite hobbies (on top of Spanish I have study Turkish, German, and most recently French). My prices are low because I am not in fact a teacher, but I understand all to well what it is to be a student and want to help you with your own language learning journey.

When I began studying Spanish, I was immediately hooked. I wanted to learn as much of the language as possible as quickly as I could. There was just one large obstacle in my way: the classroom setting. Following the rigid curriculum of a classroom is incredibly restricting to a language learner. Just think about it, w
hen you were learning English, did you start with present tense, then move to present progressive, then past tense? Of course not, because that would take too long. Instead, you learned to absorb the bits of language you were exposed to, then try it out without any real fear of making mistakes. You could say things like "I eated" instead of "I ate" in front of your parents only to find them carefully correcting you and letting you on your way. This is an entirely different set up from the typical classroom, where the equivalent mistake in a Spanish class could cost you a good grade. I intend to create the same kind of atmosphere with our lessons. I have lived in Spain and experienced the same thing with my host parents, patiently correcting my every mistake until before I knew it we were conversing fluently. As well I have obviously been in the typical Spanish classroom, where the difference between "la lámpara rota" and "la lámpara rompida" is the difference between passing and failing a test. What they don't tell you is that every native Spanish speaker made the same mistakes you are, just without all the pressure.

If any of this struck a cord with you, do not hesitate to contact me! The hours I have listed may seem small, but in reality my schedule is quite flexible and I'm sure we could find a time that fits your schedule!

We are working through "ar" verbs, talking about reflexive verbs, and Liam is giving me suggestions to use music, movies and simple books in Spanish to increase my learning of the language. Everything is going good and I feel like this is the first time I've studied Spanish is a much more logical, fluid way. Thumbs up!

About Gabriela
Hi!

To tell you a bit more about myself, my mother is Dominican/American and my father is Lebanese, but I was born and raised in Paris, France, which explains that I speak French, English, Italian and Spanish fluently. From a young age, I have had a deep appreciation and passion for languages, as well as other cultures. I moved to NYC to attend Columbia University, where I studied International Relations. I started tutoring on the side while in college and absoluty love working with children. Since graduating, I work in tv/film production where the hours are always changing, which would allow me to continue tutoring. I am a social, personable and responsible person, who cares about the needs and interests of whoever I work with.

About Gloria
Hola!

I am a native Spanish speaker from Peru that offers private Spanish Lessons. I have two years of professional experience teaching in a private setting. I enjoy working one-on-one with students because it allows me to give them my undivided attention and attend to their particular needs. I truly enjoy the freedom to teach at each student's pace, there is no rush or pressure to complete a program by a certain date.

I work with a series of books that will take us from beginner to advanced level. I provide extra materials and exercises that will help you reinforce the concepts learned by practicing.
I also teach Conversational Spanish, those lessons are particularly develop for students of advanced level that need to continue practicing the language in order to maintain their level.
During all my lessons, I like to provide stu
dents with tips and creative ideas of how to practice Spanish in-between lessons, students always find my suggestions very helpful and something that they never thought of doing before.

You will find that as a teacher I am very patient, kind and warm. It is important for me to offer a welcoming and safe environment for learning. By making my students feel comfortable and relax I ensure that they will be fully present during my lessons.

Learning a new language is exciting and can also be intimidating. I truly hope you give me the opportunity to work with you and embark in this fun adventure together!
