Private Spanish Teacher

I am a certified Spanish teacher. I have taught in the classroom for 5 years and online for two years. I have learned many different dialects of Spanish over the years, and I'm willing to learn more to teach my students. I use interactive activities, songs, videos, and movies to teach my students. We will also use different books.

Ms. Janai was the best tutor I have ever had. No matter the day, or time she was always there to help me out. Either it was math, science, writing, etc. she'd help me with every subject no matter how long it took for me to get it right, every subject was like her first nature. She was amazing teaching in person and just as good online. I've never met another tutor like Janai, she understands what you're going wrong and what your difficulties are, but she always manages to turn those difficulties around and make you better at understanding what you need to do better in order to succeed. If you're looking for an outstanding tutor Janai is the way to go!

Janai is great with older adults. She's so patient and makes me feel relaxed even when I'm saying the wrong words. She has passion! and that's exciting to see.

My Spanish lessons are fun and dynamic. The student will learn at their own pace, being always encouraged to improve and perfect pronunciation and structure. My classes include cultural aspects of the language, such as music, cooking, dancing and expressions in order to have a more rounded understanding of the language.

About Hilda

I am a native Spanish speaker, who also speaks Portuguese, and French. I have taught and tutored Spanish students from beginner-advance levels, both private and in groups for several years and taught Spanish full time at a school from grades 5-12 for a year. I currently teach art and Spanish at school for grades 1-7. I recently started teaching beginner ESL for Spanish speakers. I also teach art, drawing and painting for adults and older teens. I love teaching and intend to make it enjoyable and fun. I always encourage students to become independent and self reliant in all the subjects I teach. I care about each student and base my classes on their personal preferences, needs and circumstances.

Melissa is a miracle worker! My mother-in-law moved to the United States 40 years ago unable to speak english and while she has done a good job at learning on her own, she had significant gaps in her ability to effectively communicate. For her 68th birthday, I bought her lessons with Melissa. My mother-in-law told me I was wasting my money because she couldn't learn anything new. Well, needless to say, she can learn and with Melissa's excellent tutelage has dramatically increased her ability to speak and comprehend english. This has enabled a new level of confidence and freedom that she did not previously have and is a game changer for her. I attribute her improvement directly to Melissa's ability to understand her student's needs and personalities and craft and deliver a quality, tailored curriculum. After our first round of classes, my mother-in-law is excited to continue the lessons and has a renewed curiosity and interest in learning. Great job and thank you Melissa!!!

Melissa has a lovely calming personality. She made us feel completely at ease while learning a foreign language. She was prepared and tailored the lesson for our specific goals and level.

She displayed an expert knowledge of the language, but was still able to teach beginners. Plus we could tell she really loved Portuguese.

The online format was great. Cant wait for the next lesson.

I was born, raised and college educated in México. I speak with a neutral accent and empathize with learners of a second language, since I have been one most of my life. English is my second language. I have 10 years of experience teaching ESL to adults, and I'm ready to start teaching Spanish to beginner learners. I can customize my lessons to meet the needs and goals of each student. Context based curriculum design experience. Let's work together to help you start speaking basic Spanish in no time!

About Nery

I am a teacher at heart. I like the language arts and the satisfaction that comes with helping others achieve their goals through learning a new language. I am a good communicator and adapt easily to new situations. I creatively customize lessons and instruction to meet the needs of the individual learner. I believe that creating a welcoming, fun and relaxing class environment fosters student’s confidence and a pleasant learning experience.

My professional life started in the corporate world, working as a Human Resources analyst before moving to the USA from my native México. I spent my first years in Texas at home, raising my kids and improving my bilingual skills. Some years later, I volunteered at my parish teaching ESL to adult immigrants. Having greatly enjoyed this activity, I started part time jobs at Harris County Department

of Education and McDonald’s, teaching ESL to a diverse body of adult students. These opportunities allowed me to gain considerable experience and confidence.

Let me help you start or improve your ESL or Spanish skills!

Nery is a dedicated and knowledgeable teacher who tried her hardest to adapt our class to a very diverse body of students. I was her student for 2 semesters and during that time, my conversation, grammar and pronunciation skills improved significantly. Our class was dynamic and fun, I highly recommend her services as an ESL instructor.

About Pedro

I am a Civil Engineer specialized in Earthquake Engineering, but have diversified my background throughout the years (I am an avid student myself!). My teaching experience includes working as a professor at my university back at home and tutoring high school students- mainly in mathematics and physics. I have also taught Spanish to foreigners in my country. Before obtaining my degree, I worked as a computer technician and have always maintained this as a side-job and hobby. So I can also help you out if you wish to learn more about computers!

Pedro is a very good tutor. He is patient and explains the subject matter well. The student was comfortable with him and therefore was able to ask questions whenever it was needed. I appreciated Predro's schedule flexibility as well.

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!!!!!

As a language learner myself, I truly understand the challenges of beginning a new language. This perspective has offered me the ability to create dynamic, conversational classes using the methodologies I have tried and tested on my own. I get to know my students on a personal level in order to understand their goals and help them to reach new levels in their Spanish journey.

About David

Hi! My name is David and I have been teaching languages for over 2 years now. I have been passionate about languages from an early age but now I also have found love teaching them. I was born and raised in Venezuela, so Spanish is my native language. However, I speak English very well in case you need it. I also have a TEFL certification that taught me and gave me a more professional perspective to bring to my classes. I have lived in 4 different countries in South America which has exposed me to a more broad knowledge of my own language.

I truly believe in the online education system. It helps us connect from the comfort of our homes. I'm very flexible and I adjust to each student's pace in order to achieve their goals. I'm open to hearing feedback and constantly checking on where I can improve. I will be happy to help you and join y

ou on this adventure. I know how hard it is and I have the skills and experience to show you how to succeed and not give up.

I was born and raised in Bogota, Colombia. I have the experience and exposure to adapt to any student. I have traveled to Spain and other South american countries which allows me to teach and understand different dialects and accents. Spanish is currently the second most popular language in the world, as well as being the second most commonly spoken language in the US. I can communicate with kids, and adults of any age and create environments that stimulate the language.

"Adan seemed to know just where we needed to start based on my lack of formal Spanish education. He also knew to stretch me just enough to make it challe
nging while building my confidence. I like that he forces the repetition and recall - forcing my brain to put the right words together."
