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.

Victor has been tutoring me Spanish for a few months now, and I cannot recommend his classes highly enough. Each class is tailored to expand vocabulary and confidence in speaking, ranging from every day conversations to learning cultural nuances and perfecting the accent. Victor is incredibly enthusiastic and makes the classes challenging and fun! I definitely recommend his tutoring services to anyone wanting an introduction to Spanish, to fine-tuning their fluency.
Kelsey
Víctor is a very generous and patient teacher! He does such a good job of catering the curriculum to your skill level and interests.

I was just looking to learn a new language since all my kids are out of the house. I took spanish in highschool but all I could say is “ hola como estas “ and “queso”. Thanks to Victor I was able to read 100 Years of Solitude in spanish and I can watch casa de las Flores without subtitles. I am booking a trip to Colombia in September with my husband. I can’t wait to be his guide all thanks to Victor!

The reason people have "accents" is because they speak a foreign language using the grammatical and phoenetic rules of their native language. This is easily corrected and I am the one to show you how!

Giving the right tools and resources to each students is key to their success.

I'm a first generation half-Japanese American currently living in Boston, MA! I spent my childhood surrounded by Japanese language and culture, followed by 7 years of formal language training, culminating in a Japanese language minor at the University of Washington. My thesis focused on the manifestation of gender in Japanese performing arts.

Growing up bilingual, I understand the difficulty of trying to juggle two languages! Whether you want to learn a new language, or simply want to brush up on your Japanese skills, I am always happy to be of help! Lessons include reading, writing, listening, translating literature, and speaking (polite, casual, and formal styles). I use the Genki and Tobira books and also like to introduce students to classic and modern Japanese literature as a way to enhance the students’ cultural knowledge. I welcome beginning and intermediate Japanese students!

I’m a Native Speaker with over 10 years experience with tutoring. My lessons are fun and dynamic, they integrate grammar, conversation and culture. Students learn the language through practical examples of daily life situations, that can be conveniently applied during a trip to Italy! We learn about Italian food recipies, music, and much more.
There’s no learning a language without understanding the culture and viceverse :) All lessons can be tailored to the student’s needs.

She skillfully structures the lessons to fit your level of knowledge, and progresses you in your own time and based on how much you have learned.

Cognates are words that sound similar and can mean the same thing across different languages. However, in French, there are some tricky cognates that don't mean what you might think they mean.

La table is table, la geographie is geography, and un film is a film – otherwise known as a movie. Similar word pairs between two languages are kno …
