My lessons are so unique because I am a very intuitive teacher. I customize my lessons in a way that my student really excels in the time that is with me. As a native Spanish speaker and I very knowledgeable to the areas of the language that might tend to be a little bit more complex for some students. I had been tutoring students for five years and I have seen my students raise their confidence and proficiency with their Spanish skills beyond what they though possible. Giving the right tools and resources to each students is key to their success.

Pedro is a very good tutor. He is patient and explains the subject matter well. The student was comfortable with him and therefore was able to ask questions whenever it was needed. I appreciated Predro's schedule flexibility as well.

I had no idea how lucky I would be to find Pedro. I am an interior designer learning Autocad and having no prior experience with the program, Pedro made it totally accessible. He is a phenomenal teacher and is so kind and patient. He provides foundational rules at the beginning of each session and has clear goals mapped out for every step of the way. We have done a number of exercises that I did not think would be possible for me to accomplish at this point. I am so grateful to have found him and highly recommend him!!!!!

As a native speaker, teaching French is naturally easy and enjoyable for me.
I have experience in teaching, and learning. I believe that teachers who have an interest for languages and know of the process of learning will help you master your desired language.

My familiarity with different languages (English, Portuguese, German, now learning Swahili) equips me with the knowledge of various learning styles and tricks. With that, I will support you in learning well and fast and adapt my holistic style of teaching to your preferences.

About Nicole

I am currently working in the development sector in DRC after recently finishing my master's in African Studies at the University of Oxford. I am passionate about Trade and Development, justice and equality. To me learning languages is part of creating linkages between the different communities a

I really appreciate Luis for the practice he's given me. We worked on lyric analyzation and flow. We focused on speeding up the meter to work harder in performing faster. I have become better with expressing my vocals in a volume where I can sing a long with the music bed. I highly recommend Luis for anyone who is working on improving their vocal training.

French Grammar Rules: How to Conjugate Common Irregular Verbs

Last week, French tutor Carol Beth L. treated us to a great lesson on conjugating regular verbs. This week, we look at conjugating common irregular French verbs... French grammar is full of irregularities and exceptions. They make sense when you understand the phonetic and grammatical in's and out's of the language, but can still be difficult to navigate – especially at the beginning. Covering every single irregular French verb out there, therefore, is a difficult task to tackle in just one …
