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

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!

I feel that learning in general and learning a foreign language in particular is about repetition and I ask my students to repeat everything I teach over and over again until they know it by heart. I keep my lessons simple to avoid overwhelming the students and to allow time for them to repeat what they learned earlier. I teach the words that form part of the so called core vocabulary; words that are chosen according to frequency and range (in the sense that they “occur across a wide variety of texts”) It is often said that the first 2000 most frequent words cover approximately 90% of the vocabulary used by native-speakers in daily conversations. This means that for a student they represent the basic resource to be able to communicate.

About Stefania

I am Italian. I moved to Canada first and the US next in my thirties. I love teaching. I own a retail training and consulting company. I have taught Italian on and off over the years and have always loved doing it. I am very passionate about the topics I teach and have a clear understanding of the

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.

Do you want to understand your favorite anime show, movies or Japanese culture better? Do you want to learn to crack jokes in Japanese and win any crowd over? Would you like to do business in Japan and need someone who can not only teach you the language, but cultural differences and etiquette so you can win over any client?

Japanese and English are polar opposites in many ways.
Sentence structures are upside down. English is written horizontally left to right, but traditional Japanese is written vertically right to left.
Communicating can be difficult when what can be spoken directly in English has to be said in more subtle ways in Japanese, and this miscommunication can cause relationships to break down.

My passion is to help people cross cultural barriers and make new friends.
Learning a new language can build confidence and expand your mind in ways you never thought possible!

One of the signs that you have truly mastered a language is to understand the humor. I can ...
