I don't really teach by the book. I teach based on the student's circumstances. For instance, what is their motivation, what are their goals. These things help me to tailor a program based on their needs and preferences. And because I use their real life scenarios, this helps students progress quickly because they can then relate what their learning to what's going on in their real life.

I am a 62 year old person who had previously studied Spanish using Rosetta Stone and Duolingo. I started taking lessons with Georgina several years ago to provide a regular opportunity to engage in Spanish conversation. Our lessons have been free-flowing and she introduced me to a number of books written in Spanish which were not only helpful in further developing my knowledge of Spanish but were culturally enlightening as well. Georgina is easy to engage, a delightful person to know and an excellent instructor.

I have more than ten years of experience teaching Spanish and English as a Second Language (ESL). I guarantee my students a successful class thanks to my passion for teaching, my patience and my enthusiasm.

About Adriana
Hola,

Thank you for taking the time to read my profile!

Spanish is my native language and I've always been fascinated by its grammar, its phonetics and beauty in general. But learning other languages has also being one of my passions. I am fortunate to be proficient in two languages (Spanish and English), but knowing a few others has given me perspective that became a tool for another of my passions: Teaching!!!

I strongly believe everyone is capable of learning Spanish. That's why I guarantee my students I can teach them not only what they want but also what they need.
Every student is different and that's why I personalize each of my classes. I have 15+ years of experience teaching adults, teens, children, big groups, families, etc., not only in the US but also in Mexico and other countries (online). My teaching method has
been recognized and awarded by organizations like the Erie Neighborhood House in Chicago, and the DuPage County Health Department.
I enjoy teaching because there is no better satisfaction that helping others to accomplish something they considered almost impossible; I will be happy to help you get there!

From my lessons, students will gain engaging and exciting instruction. Students will use Spanish every time we meet. My aim is to help you meet your goals and help you enjoy it along the way!

About Jimmy
My name is Jimmy. I have been teaching Spanish for about seven years now. I have taught all ages from kindergarten to adults.

As a current teacher, my primary goal is to make sure the students have engaging and fun experiences while learning Spanish. I do not lecture solely on the nuts and bolts of the language but rather allow the student to perform the language in order to learn it.

I do want to make clear that I do teach young children (ages 2-12) but I prefer to teach them in person and at least twice a week. I believe the experience to be more valuable that way.

Additionally, I ask that parents or potential adult students and with me talk for a while before signing up for lessons. I may not be able the person to give you what you need. I want to be sure your needs are met through Take Lessons and I may not be the person th
at can do that. So, please message me often.

One last note: If we are meeting in person, I am only willing to meet in public locations and not anyone's home.

I am always excited to teach someone this language I love so much.

¡Gracias!

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.

I am a native Spanish speaker with great enthusiasm for teaching the language to others. I strive to make each lesson unique according to your needs. If you are a beginner or an advanced student, if you are seeking simply to practice your conversation, or whichever situation you are in, I will be thrilled to help you.

So I can also help you out if you wish to learn more about computers!

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!!!!!

About Victor M.

Close
Chicago, IL

View Full Profile

My pedagogy is constructivist and interdisciplinary . This means students learn Spanish not just from textbooks and exercises but mostly from using and practicing the language through the arts and through their personal experiences with it. Poems, music, plays, movies, podcasts, voiceover, and many other art forms are the main resource of knowledge and go hand in hand with a technical review by the instructor.

About Victor
I have been extremely passionate about teaching Acting and Spanish for over 10 years (and have been an English as a Second Language student for 30!!) I am a native of Mexico City but made Chicago my home three years ago when I decided to continue my acting career in such a lovely city.

(Acting bio above)

Spanish: I started teaching Spanish while I was doing my degree at the University of Exeter in the UK. I helped some of my actor colleagues learn the basics of Spanish and when I moved back to Mexico I decided to professionalize my teaching and took an intensive course focused on teaching Spanish to beginners. During that course I fall in love with my native language and decided to take another intensive course this time focused on Advance Spanish. During that course I learned beautiful nuances and details about this amazing langu
age.
Since I have an artistic background, I try to create multidisciplinary classes so that my students can learn Spanish mainly through the arts and not through condensed and heavy books (though they are part of my teaching since I believe theory is of extreme importance in any field of study).

As a bilingual person, I've learned that language is the door to other cultures. Many times we are attracted to a language because we love a country that speaks it, songs we like to sing and dance to, tasty gastronomy, our parents, friends, among many more things. It is language who help us relate to others, understand their ways of thinking, their traditions, their jokes or their feelings.

This is why I strongly believe that finding the essence of why we want to learn a language is so important. It doesn't matter if you are a kid, a teenager or an adult, if you learn a language through the things you are personally interested and passionate about, learning will never feel like an obligation and will always feel like a fun game!

I am a 25-year dedicated veteran teacher. My Spanish lessons are highly effective, engaging, and fun! My number 1 goal is to make sure my students master the concepts of our lessons. I take a special interest in each student and am passionate about each one’s success.

About Rita
Hello, Students! My name is Rita, and I am excited about being your online Spanish or writing teacher! I have been teaching for 25 years and tutoring in various subjects for many of those years, including in-person private teaching and tutoring as well as online domestic and international teaching and mentoring. For the traditional classroom, I have served in private, charter, and public schools. For most of my career, I have taught levels 1 and 2 of Spanish. Teaching Spanish and learning other languages is my passion, and I am looking forward to sharing that passion with you.

My Spanish lessons are engaging, innovative, and thoughtful - of you! I implement highly effective lessons that engage students and foster their ability to master concepts of the target language. Throughout my career, my greatest assets have been my high work eth
ic, my personality, through which I draw students’ interest, building relationships and rapport with those learners, and dedication to my craft, which has been the prelude to my professional growth.

Now, let's talk about writing! I am currently a middle school writing teacher. My background in writing began at a young age as writing abilities have always seemed natural to me. From creative writing and a love of grammar to proofreading materials without trying, writing has been my niche.

In my lessons, I guide students with step-by-step instructions, explanations, and guided practice. My writing students find my lessons helpful because I break down the details into small, understandable sections. I'm looking forward to helping you meet your essay writing needs. Look no further for a writing teacher who will get you on track.

Reach out to me, and we can plan our first session!
