I first heard Spanish from my dad who's Colombian, so my lessons focus on communication via dynamic task-based activities! First you discover grammar functions & the meaning of vocab through simple comprehension activities. Then we practice these new items through conversation questions or communication activities that simulate real-life tasks like ordering food, asking for directions, or describing a person. This creates a fun atmosphere for learning and gives students ample opportunities to speak! I also like to use multimedia like videos, pictures and powerpoints to make lessons more interactive, especially online lessons! For beginners, I use the book Spanish Demystified or Easy Spanish Step by Step as a learning resource and to provide grammar homework.

Besides speaking, my lessons also cover the other aspects of a language: Reading, writing and listening comprehension. I target those skills with activities such as short readings & writing assignments for homework, and themed ...

After minoring in it at college, I perfected my fluency from living in Spain for 2 years and studying it for 18 years! My adventures with the language led me to pursue an MA in Spa

I appreciate her willingness to accommodate me and my schedule and, although I have only had 1 lesson so far, can feel that I am already growing in knowledge and confidence. I really like that she gives me assignments I can work on between lessons so that I can make the most of my lesson time with her.

I. Business Russian: I have been teaching Business Russian for many years. My students reach high results as I teach honestly and maximally productively. I have my own experience in business sphere, so it will be more productive for your education, as, in perspective, when you start to speak Russian, we can talk on different business themes freely, using business lecsic.

I use only the best curriculum among tens of programs, I check them all and choose the most competently composed. Also I add some useful material to it by myself. It turns the curriculum into maximally full-fledged educational process, which will help you to learn Business Russian in the maximally possible best way.

I've worked with dozens of students on English accent training with great success! I take a very prescriptive approach by focusing on specific pronunciation structures in order to guide my students toward softening their accents and developing an ear for native-like pronunciation patterns in English, and learning to replicate them.

I have tutored Latin for several years and received awards for my own proficiency. I began to learn Latin in middle school, and I was even a member of the Junior Classical League. In College, while I pursued my degree in Humanities and Cultural Studies, I took every Latin education opportunity available to me, including supervised reading and translation work in my undergraduate thesis. I have fulfilled courses through Medieval Latin, which was at the graduate school level. I received an award in Latin Excellence this past Winter semester, at my graduate school.
