Victor M.

Chicago, IL

Bgcheck Background Checked


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

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.

She makes you feel comfortable, an abundance of information to help you get out of your shell. It's great to see someone genuinely passionate of what they do. If you are a beginner don't hesitate and book a lesson, you are in good hands. Learned so much this first lesson and can't wait to learn some more!

Stephanie offers just the right mix of vocal technique theory / practice and useful marketing insights in her engaging, didactic and entertaining classes. She has also shown herself to be clearly attuned to the specific skills I want to develop professionally and has set up my classes to meet these exact needs. I throughly enjoy the various lesson readings (and the fact that she sends prep work ahead of time), the flexibility she offers for class scheduling, and her overall approach to teaching.

Bonjour tout le monde!

i have experiences teaching French, Italian, English and Spanish since 3 Years. I have mostly worked with children of all ages starting from 5+ till 16y; but all adults interesting in the France and its amazing culture are more than welcomed.
Apart from using grammars books i love to teach languages from my personal point of view and experienced: as an European student of languages i have been living and studying in Italy( my home country) France and Spain for years. Thanks to these wonderful experiences i have immersed myself in the culture of these countries. During my lessons we will go through all the grammar rules and learn how to actually the language works using textbooks but also important classic and modern literature pieces as well as music texts so that the language knowledge will be accompained by a growing understanding of real culture of the country and of the difference with USA.

I focus on getting students comfortable and capable of communicating in English functionally and conversationally.

If you have never spoken any English before, or if you are already feeling very comfortable speaking English, I can work with you! I work with students who have never seen the English alphabet, but also with highly advanced business professionals. I adjust to your comprehension level.

"Ana is an amazing instructor!!! I came back to Spanish lessons after having some time away from the language and I needed to recharge my conversational skills. I found Ana to be personable and professional and the classes to be engaging, enjoyable and varied. Specifically, I wanted to get ready for a trip back to Spain this past fall. I felt more than prepared and had an amazing time and my ability to speak easily in a language that I love was a huge part of it. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Ana to anyone."

French Grammar Rules: Passé Composé for Regular Verbs

Ready to try your hand at speaking about past events in French? Tutor Carol Beth L. shares the grammar you'll need to know... So perhaps you know now how to conjugate French verbs in the present tense. You can talk about things that are happening now. But what about what happened yesterday, last week, or last year? The basic past tense in French, also known as the passé composé, is used to talk about events in the past. It is aptly named because it is composed (composé) of two parts: …
