I've been teaching foreign languages for more than 20 years. You'll build up your knowledge from speaking simple sentences at first to using your vocabulary more confidently and conjugating like a pro! I have been using different textbooks that emphasize the four major skills in language learning: listening, speaking, reading and writing. I also use recorded materials, worksheets and easy and intermediate readers in class. I hope you can join me in this great adventure of world languages.

About Helena
I am a native speaker of Portuguese and got my degree in English (ESL) and French Teaching in my home country, Portugal. I have been teaching foreign languages and ESL for more than 20 years and am comfortable working with all age groups. I taught 17 years in Portugal (ESL and French; 6-12 grades and Adult Education Programs) and ever since I moved to the US in 2010 (Portuguese and Spanish in a corporation, and tutoring all four languages at home or online). I am a very patient, motivated and enthusiastic teacher and I always adjust my teaching methods to the student's age, needs and purpose. I never give up on a student and I am sure I can help him/her attain his/her full potential. I believe anyone can learn a new language but consistent repetition and refreshing before, during and after class is needed. I expect the student to be resp
onsible, patient and persistent in his learning process and I am willing to help him/her on the way.

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!

Private lessons allow me to give my undivided attention to my students and attend to their needs, adjusting my program to their unique way of learning, making it a very enjoyable and rewarding experience.

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 the program.

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 students 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!

I am really exited to help someone immerse themselves in the Spanish language and to help them learn at their own pace. I am really passionate about literature as well, so if you would like we could also make that part of your lessons. Im really exited about this, so send me a message if you think we could work well together.

About Tony
Hi, I am a young tutor who is a natural born, Spanish speaker. I am very passionate about the beauty of the Spanish language. I have taken college level courses in Spanish as well to learn the language more in depth. I attended school in Mexico as well, and have a very good sense of the language in a scholarly way, such as the grammar, punctuation, and literature. Spanish literature is one of my passions as well. I would definitely like to incorporate literature as part of the tutoring, should that be your interest in the future.
