Have you ever wanted to learn this wonderful and very humoristic language and culture? Be it you're just travelling because someone told you that they're making the best cheese in the world (which is true!) or you're moving there because someone got you a job (lucky you!) or you just want to learn another language because you're curious. Let me warn you: It is not a modification of the German language, even though there's a few words that might look similar at first glance, but they're pronounced completely different! So, a small country with a huge culture! Ik hoop, tot ziens!

Chrissy was incredibly helpful in determining how I learn and then devising a series of lesson plans that help me learn in the easiest and fastest manner. It's been great so far and I expect to make quick progress because of her skills and personality.
Joseph A.
Chrissy is a very competent and understanding teacher. As I wasn’t a typical student for her, she quickly changed her lesson structure and tried to cover content in different musical genres. She was patient with my progress and encouraging. I think I learned quiet a lot of information and hope to continue my lessons hopefully in the near future.

Education is one of the most valuable things you can acquire. Knowledge stays with you wherever you go and you can use it in the less unexpected situation.

I was born and raise on Peru, South America. Spanish is my native language.
I also hold a Bachelor's on Biological Science from Roosevelt University with a minor in Chemistry. I have take classes like Molecular Biology, Anatomy and Physiology, Biochemistry, Neuroscience. Also General and Organic Chemistry. General Physics and Math up to Calculus. I offer tutoring on Biology, General Chemistry and Math.

Being bilingual have been a great advantage for me, especially at work. That's why I offer Spanish lessons and tutoring, from beginning to advance levels.

It's amazing how our brain can absorb information in different ways. We can be learning something unintentionally. So whichever your circumstances are we should be open to learn or improve our skills every day. Remember, the process of learning never ends.

"Francesca is a wonderful and intelligent tutor! I was gifted Italian lessons and Francesca did everything to make my lessons fun and she tailored them exactly to my needs. Not only is she a great teacher, correcting me during our Italian dialogs which I very much appreciated, but she is a great person to get to know. Lessons became more of a meeting with an Italian friend then strict grammar lessons which is exactly what I wanted. My Italian definitely got better with Francescas tutoring. I will forever stay in touch with Francesca and continue to improve my Italian language with her."

"I have been taking lessons from Claudia for almost four months and my experience with her has been outstanding. Claudia is an excellent teacher who takes her student's goals and truly makes them her own. When I told her that my goal was to learn Spanish to a conversational level, she described to me what I would need to do in order to obtain that goal.

Here's what I think makes Claudia unique:

* Carefully planned out teaching method. She has a carefully planned out method for teaching Spanish and uses quality materials. She has garnered the best materials and supplemented them with her own. She teaches Spanish in a logical sequence where each step includes material from the previous ones. This has helped me to reinforce the concepts I learned earlier.

* My lessons with her include a mix of grammar, speaking, and listening. It's much easier for me to understand written Spanish than to understand the spoken word or to speak it myself. Claudia makes a point in each lesson to practice speaking and listening to help with this. This has probably been the biggest help to me so far.

* She provides homework customized to my level so I can practice between sessions. Sometimes the homework is an audio recording that she has recorded herself especially for me. The fact that she does this shows how much she cares about her student's success.

* Her patience. She has to be the most patient person I've ever met. Sometimes it takes a while to get a concept or to understand, but she is always happy to repeat herself or slow down. There have been more than a few sessions where she has done this a lot!

* Her encouragement. Learning a new language can be frustrating at times but Claudia is always encouraging and celebrates even the smallest progress.

It seems like there are a lot of Spanish teachers out there who know how to speak Spanish, but I think there are very few who really know how to teach it. Obviously Claudia is a native speaker of Spanish, but she is also an expert teacher. I feel fortunate to have found her and have referred other students to her. I can't recommend her highly enough!"

35 Spanish Slang Words and Phrases You Should Know

Want to add some Spanish slang to your vocabulary? Every country has its own unique usage of slang, and each generation invents new slang words. So if you're learning Spanish “by the book,” you may find it difficult when you try to communicate with native speakers in casual settings. Just like you learned your native tongue, native Spanish speakers learned formal Spanish in school and the more conversational aspects of the language outside of the classroom.
