I teach Spanish and English. I've been teaching English for more than 20 years and Spanish for 8 years. I like to focus my classes on students needs. The most important is to make them feel comfortable and motivated. I use a lot of vocabulary, shown with drawings or materials to show examples. My goal is to make students speak the language in a very natural and easy way.

Vania is an excellent Spanish instructor

I've taken many Spanish lessons that have ranged from various software programs to personal tutors. Vania is great. She knows how to relate with each person in order to convey concepts. She's the best I have worked with.

She's also very accommodating, since I tend to change my schedule around a lot. She is always flexible to accommodate. Vania is simply great.

Private Spanish Teacher

Spanish teacher with 10 years experience teaching and tutoring Spanish. Geographic area is Mexico. The goal is for students to be able to actively use the language and not be afraid to experiment. The focus is on meaningful conversation and reading authentic texts. Classes are creative, fun and held to 95% in the target language.

About Annika

My first tutoring experience took place in first grade when I was asked to assist a newly arrived Vietnamese girl with her English. I myself had learned English when I first came to the United States at three years of age and could relate well to some of the issues the newcomer was facing.

A true global nomad, I have lived in Germany, the U.S., Mexico and Russia and have traveled extensively. Starting with English and German, and eventually Spanish, French and Russian, I have been instructing students since 1989 in various countries of a variety of ages in a multitude of informal and formal settings.

In 1990, I received my Bachelor of Arts in Russian Studies from George Mason University. In 1995, I completed my Masters Degree in Secondary Education/Teaching English as a Second Language. After one year of working in a public school

setting, I began teaching privately and on a freelance basis for a number of private companies and language schools, and the government.

Annika is a native German who is totally bilingual (English) and can explain complex concepts well in either language. The instruction approach is fast paced but understandable. So far, an excellent experience.

I'm attempting the impossible - learning a new language! Annika makes the impossible feel possible. She is a really great teacher, has excellent suggestions for how to move forward. I like the text we work from, too. I highly recommend learning a new language from Annika!

Hi, I've been teaching Spanish for 13 years and my students have gone on to love Spanish language, culture, and study abroad. Some of my students continued studying Spanish in college and even be Spanish Honor classes. Some students even made it their major. We begin with easy sentences and then as time goes on, you'll be able to conjugate the verbs and able to make some sentences and short conversations. I am using a curriculum for young adults that I have used in my school teaching which includes Spanish culture and other subjects and we will have lots of material to accompany your lessons. I love working with students of all levels and make our lessons as fun as possible.

With over 3 years of experience as a Spanish Teacher, one of my passions in life is the opportunity to share knowledge constantly, as well as, to help individuals eager to improve even when some details appear to be insignificant.
At the age of 19, I formally started working as a professor of Exact Sciences at the Stephen W. Hawking Institute in Ecuador, my home country.
We all should be determined to find an objective/career that would be our passion and reflects our life goal as well. This perspective encouraged me to step out of my comfort zone to move to USA thanks to an Ecuadorian scholarship which financed the commencement of my journey in Environmental Eng. focusing on Nanotechnology at Vincennes Univ. IN. There, I had a training at different Departments as a STEM, English and Spanish tutor; which eventually, gave me the chance to learn about the teaching-learning process of Higher Level English and Spanish Classes from Basic Level Classes (focused on the four ...

About Elizabeth

I am a Science teacher besides my experience as an English and Spanish tutor, working in this field for more than 6 years. I graduated from Vincennes University with an Associate Degree in Environmental and Ecological Engineering. Currently, I am pursuing my Bachelor Degree in Environmental Engineering at The National Polytechnic University, also known as EPN in Quito, Ecuador.

At the age of 19, I started working as a professor of Abstract Reasoning and Exact Sciences at Stephen W. Hawking Institute in Ecuador, my home country. Eventually, I had the opportunity of training at different Departments as a STEM , Spanish and English tutor at Vincennes Univ., IN, USA from 2016 to 2018.

I strongly believe that we all should be determined to find a career that would be our passion and reflects our life goal as well. This per

spective encouraged me to step out of my comfort zone to become a scholarship student sponsored by Ecuador’s government on 2015; that very August I started my studies at USA. That opportunity represented the commencement that I was looking for my journey Environmental Eng. focused on Nanotechnology.

All these once in a lifetime events have maked me realize that one of my passions in life is the opportunity to share knowledge constantly, as well as, to help individuals eager to improve even when some details appear to be insignificant. Indeed, the process of teaching-learning actually represents such an enriching academic and personal experience.

Assuredly, obstacles really do not matter when we strive for more innovation and knowledge, because the universe always falls in love with a stubborn soul; so let's get started!

Private Spanish Teacher

I have been teaching for 11 years, having taught students of all ages. Speaking is just as important as reading & writing, so there are always lots of dialogues & conversations. I also incorporate everyday experiences to make the language more accessible. I love languages & cultures, and try to make learning a new language an amazing experience!

About tina

I am currently a college professor. I received my Bachelors from Penn State University and my Masters from the University of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

Having lived in Spain, I learned first-hand the importance of being able to communicate. I emphasize oral communication equally with reading & writing skills.

Even though I teach collegians, I have also taught young children & older adults. I adapt my teaching methods to best suit whatever age group I am working with.

I love languages and cultures, and am always trying to learn new things. As a student of dance for many years, I am a fan of Spanish & Hispanic music, which I also incorporate into some of my lessons.

I have also done interpretation and translation, so I can provide some instruction in those areas as well.

My goal is not only to teach Spanish, but to also create curio

sity and enthusiasm for the language, culture & history of such a large & diverse population,

I went into this knowing nearly nothing about the Spanish language. This would not be brief if I listed everything I now know about the language (I still
have much to learn). I give Profesora F. excellent on all aspects of
teaching, plus the she made learning a lot fun. She is a great teacher.

Profesora F. is a very caring and considerate teacher. I was going through a rough time when she was teaching me, and she was patient and willing to work with me to help me succeed. She always encouraged me and made me determined to do well. She is a wonderful teacher and person.

Spanish with Profesora F. was awesome. I took Spanish back in high school and honestly I could not stand it. But she really made the class fun and inviting.
I probably learned the most from her than from any other professor. She made the class!!!

I love teaching people how to properly speak Spanish & make sure it is enjoyable! My focus is on full understanding and ability to master basics before introducing more concepts. I also work on enunciation and phonetics to ensure students understand how to say what they are learning correctly. I welcome questions!

I look forward to introducing you to an amazing and rewarding skill!

About Ciera

Buenos dias! I've been studying Spanish for 8 years. I have an extensive education in Spanish with a Bachelor's degree & 3 months of Spanish immersion at La Universidad de Salamanca in Spain. I taught ESL when I studied in Spain & fell in love with teaching language. Once I came back Stateside, I tutored in my University Tutoring center for the last year of my degree. I have translated for a few companies and had to learn how to sound "native" on top of fluently speaking the language.

"Thank you . My child is grateful for his understanding from the help you gave ."
Daniel
"Irene was very friendly and professional."
Todd B
"Brilliant instructor, fun and memorable exercises make it a class to look forward to. The improved atmosphere in learning with Mariella has allowed me to
attain a more rapid progress that was conversationally and occupationally useful much sooner than I anticipated. Working with an instructor one on one also helps greatly decrease anxiety of learning when you will need to try your new skills on others who may not know you well if at all. The lessons she gives, along with the adjuncts on learning recommended, provide an efficacious and complete Spanish learning system where the goal you personally desire will be obtained, be it for travel, occupational, or cultural purposes. I cannot get over how many years I've studied Spanish using books and computer programs and audio CDs in the car, but then to make more progress in a short time than I had over years locks in that speaking high quality Spanish will be in your future if you continue with this instructor and follow her careful guidance."

I have a tough time pronouncing certain words and can confuse my grammar but Micah breaks down the pronunciation syllable by syllable so you have a command of the word.
