If you're looking for top-tier, enjoyable, results-driven tutoring, send me a message. I've been helping students ace their next Spanish exam, paper, project, or standardized test, for over 10 years. But more importantly, I build lasting relationships with my students – meeting on a regular basis; covering all aspects of skill-building, test prep, and organization; and acting as a consistent presence in the student's life. I currently tutor high school students in New York at Horace Mann, Riverdale, Trinity, Collegiate, and Dwight Englewood, as well as adults and younger students.

About Jesse

I'm a professional Spanish and English tutor with over 10 years of experience teaching at the high school, middle school, and college levels. I hold a masters degree from Harvard University, a Bachelors degree in Spanish language and Political Science, and a teaching certificate from the Fulbri

A knowledgeable and patient educator, Jesse has found a teaching style that perfectly balances challenge and inspiration. As a doctoral candidate in the sciences, it is important for me to assert my knowledge of a topic while capturing the attention of the reader. Jesse has taught me to transform bare facts and ideas into structured, sophisticated passages. He has played an active role in building my self-confidence and has helped me find an authentic writing voice to more clearly and elegantly express my thoughts. I am grateful to have his guidance and am eager to vouch for his excellence as a tutor.

I am so lucky that I found Jesse! He is thoughtful, thorough, patient, and kind, and his lessons always felt like they were tailored specifically to me and my needs. Even his teaching materials were personalized to include my name and phrases that only I would need to use (i.e. I'm an actress and piano teacher, and I've been living and working in NYC for over ten years). Highly recommended!

"I elected to choose an online Spanish teacher for my daughter Arianna who is nine years old - after unsuccessful locating a local Spanish speaking class/teacher. Haven't had any experience with online teachers, I asked Take Lessons to recommend a Spanish native speaker from Puerto Rico. I needed to find someone who understands and is very familiar with the pronunciation of the Latin dialect. Ra's focus is conversational language; however, she was more than willing to take on the challenge of starting from the beginning with the basics, such as the alphabet, number, months, etc. and building into conversational sentences with Arianna. She is extremely easy to interact with, soft-spoken, and processes a genuine love of teaching. My daughter looks forward to their weekly meetings while embracing her Latin roots. We are immensely pleased with Ra. We would highly recommend her without reservation. Sincerely, The Lopez Family"

¡Aprende Espanol Ahora! (Learn Spanish Now!)

by Spanish tutor Naomi K. (https://takelessons.com/profile/naomi-k3)

I’m Naomi, and I teach Spanish lessons in Washington DC. There are few personal rewards in life greater than the ability to speak a foreign language. There are SO MANY benefits! For example:
· It is an incredible personal confidence-builder · It’s a great way to begin thinking “outside of the box” -- you gain a new perspective about people and the world in general. · It allows you to extend your network of acquaintances to many other cultures -- you’ll have a more diverse group of friends. · It is a great exercise tool for the brain -- research shows that working the brain in this way has been known to delay the onset of Alzheimer’s and other mental diseases. · It allows you to communicate and connect with others on their level. · It facilitates worldwide communication on so many levels (e.g. relationships, helps those in the legal world, enhances educational processes in schools, facilitates patient care in hospitals, etc.).

I began studying the language years ago while attending Catholic Schools. I just thought it was an easy elective back then, but as I got into college it gained more importance as the Latino population in the U.S. began to grow rapidly (early ‘80s). Then I went to college, and I won an academic scholarship to study Spanish in Mexico (and to live with a host family for five months during that time). This was one of the greatest learning experiences of my life! I was thrust into an unfamiliar culture to learn, although I did know the language pretty well by the time I got there. While there, I not only learned advanced Spanish, but I learned a LOT about the Latino/Mexican culture as well.

After college, I left my home state of Ohio to be where I knew I’d use the language more frequently: in the Washington DC metropolitan area. I’ve been teaching Spanish lessons in Washington DC for many years, outside of my full-time jobs. Tutoring others helps me to stay immersed! And Washington DC is definitely a great place to be immersed in the Spanish language.

Outside of your lessons, the media and the DC social life are all good sources for learning Spanish (or any language)! Consider doing the following to keep yourself immersed in the language. Many of these are FREE!:

· Turn on the radio! Many radio stations located near or in DC offer programming and music that facilitates learning the language and helps with listening skills. Here are a few I like: o WACA 1540 AM (Wheaton) – Spanish Contemporary Music and Programming o WAFY 103.1 FM (Middletown) – Contemporary Hit Radio o WBQH 1050 AM (Silver Spring) – Regional Mexican o WERQ 92.3 FM (Baltimore) – Mainstream Urban

· Turn on the TV! One in the same, many television stations offer programming that facilitates learning the language, including telenovelas (soap operas), which can be really fun to watch! Here you get visuals too, to help with overall language comprehension. Here are a few to check out: o WZDC - TeleMundo (check your service provider for actual channel numbers) o WMDO – Telefutura (UniMás) o Univision

· Go out to eat! There are a LOT of Hispanic restaurants to enjoy in the DC area, and many have the original cuisine from their country. Check these out for good Hispanic food and culture: o Great Cuban food at Banana Café on Capitol Hill o Delicious Tex-Mex food at Lauriol Plaza in Dupont Circle o Savory Peruvian roasted chicken at El Pollo Rico in Arlington, VA o Spicy Salvadorean food at Ercilia’s Restaurant in Mount Pleasant DC o Mouth-watering grilled Mexican food at Qdoba Restaurant in Hyattsville, MD

· Pick up a book, newspaper, or magazine! Reading books and periodicals in Spanish can help build your vocabulary and can help you learn about the Latino culture, country by country. These are often available for free at local businesses, restaurants, libraries, etc.: o El Tiempo Latino (Noticias de Washington DC - newspaper) o El Pregonero (newspaper) o Washington Hispanic (newspaper) o Latina (magazine)

· Go to church! Many churches in the Washington, DC area, such as St. Matthew Cathedral, have masses in Spanish. The cathedral has a 1pm mass each Sunday solely in Spanish..

There is NO reason to delay learning Spanish! There are so many resources available to anyone who wants to begin the journey of learning Spanish in Washington DC. I can personally testify that this process of learning the language (and now instructing) over the years has been so rewarding for me, AND it continues! (There’s always more to learn!)
