About Jimmy

My name is Jimmy. I have been teaching Spanish for about seven years now. I have taught all ages from kindergarten to adults.

As a current teacher, my primary goal is to make sure the students have engaging and fun experiences while learning Spanish. I do not lecture solely on the nuts and bolts of the language but rather allow the student to perform the language in order to learn it.

I do want to make clear that I do teach young children (ages 2-12) but I prefer to teach them in person and at least twice a week. I believe the experience to be more valuable that way.

Additionally, I ask that parents or potential adult students and with me talk for a while before signing up for lessons. I may not be able the person to give you what you need. I want to be sure your needs are met through Take Lessons and I may not be the person th

at can do that. So, please message me often.

One last note: If we are meeting in person, I am only willing to meet in public locations and not anyone's home.

I am always excited to teach someone this language I love so much.

¡Gracias!

About Jessica

I am an enthusiastic Italian language teacher who has experience to college students and adults from all over the the world. During my courses, I enjoy creating activities tailored on the students' needs and abilities. At the end of each class students are able to complete a new practical task in Italian, to expand their vocabulary, and to learn more about Italian culture!

Jessica is an amazing teacher. She provides practical instruction without the pressure. Her teaching style made learning Italian fun. I would recommend her services to anyone who wishes to gain better understanding of the Italian language and culture(s).

About Agata

I am not only a native speaker of Polish, but also a proffesional teacher with a great experience of work with small and big groups, 4 years old kids, teenagers, adults, and 80 years old students ( by the way, bravo for Ms. Marie from Paris!).
I use the methods that are the best for you: traditional, based on PDF or ebooks, interactive exercises, quzilets, kahoots or just conversation - it is all up to you. You decide! I do my best - I build a curriculum, then I adjust and create the exercises. I plan the revisions and I keep you motivated and satisfied every time we meet.
You learn. This will be hard work and fun. Not possible? Check it!

Agata is excellent teacher! I’d like to highly recommend Agata to everyone.
I have been taking classes with Agata for over a year. She is patient, and is always prepared with interesting material. She is a highly qualified and experienced Polish teacher. She is a very positive, highly organized and she has a great sense of humour! I enjoyed having a class with Agata. Over the period that I took lessons with Agata, my Polish knowledge substantially improved.

I have been studying Polish with Agata for almost two years (once a week). She is an awesome teacher, very intelligent, fun and lively, full of energy and passion. Agata always prepared different types of exercises for me, so the lessons were never boring. She can find an individual way for every student, for example I had a hard time actually starting speaking in Polish with other people and Agata suggested to have more conversations and brought lots of interesting topics to discuss.
It was a great pleasure to be her student and I can't recommend her enough.

About Aline

Hello, my name is Aline Fernandez and I am originally from Mexico City. I have been teaching Spanish for the last 4 years and I love it. I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Spanish Literature from the Iberoamerican University in Mexico City and an MFA in Spanish Culture from St. Phillips College. There is nothing I love more than teaching this beautiful language to my fellow students and nothing gets me going more than seeing them progress in their Spanish conversational skills. I teach the basics, intermediate and advance courses at a conversational level so my students can utilize their new found language at a grass roots level, which I believe is the most important one. Reach out and find out how easy and fun learning a new language can be.

Bgcheck Background Checked


About Bobbie

I'm a lover of languages and learning. To me, speaking another language is like unlocking a secret to another world and I love sharing that feeling with others. I first started learning French in 1993. My 7th grade best friend and I thought it would be very cool to learn French, as everyone else was studying Spanish. We had those adolescent daydreams of speaking a "secret" language to one another as we walked down the hall. We didn't quite get there in 7th grade, but French absolutely grabbed me and wouldn't let go. Even after our family moved to a small town that didn't offer French, I still studied on my own until I eventually went to college. The rest is history!

My friends describe me as casual, friendly, helpful, and understanding. My goal is to help you reach your goals, whether that means casual phrases for vacation time or buil

ding to full fluency. To do this, I listen to the things you want to learn instead of telling you what you must learn. As a certified public school teacher, I know how to structure our conversations to get where you want to go.

I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in French Langauge and Literature, and a Master of Arts in Teaching. I have been tutoring and teaching in public high schools since 2014 and am excited to start an online endeavor with you!

About Jerry (Zheyang)

Hello! I am Jerry Xiong. I just graduated from Oberlin College and Conservatory with Bachelor Degrees in violin performance and chemistry. Currently, I am studying violin performance at USC Thornton School of Music.

Having been the concertmaster of both Oberlin Orchestra and the Colorado College Summer Music Festival Orchestra, I believe that classical music has always been a passion for me. Recent awards include winner of New Hampshire Philharmonic Orchestra Concerto Competition of 2014, Winner of Oberlin Conservatory Concerto Competition of 2017-18, and the semi-finalist of Ann and Charles Eisemann International Young Artist Competition of 2018. This year, I have been selected as one of the four concertmasters of the Thornton Symphony.

I believe that my experience and my passion for music will be able to help both improve one's techni

que as well as staying passionate about music. Having met numerous world's greatest violin pedagogues, being able to share my music with you is a treat for both you and me.

For my potential student who would like to learn Chinese, my fluency in both languages will be able to help you learn the language with fun and ease. Learning Chinese is not just learning a language, one will be able to feel the Chinese culture and the beauty of this language.

About Macarena

I am a professional Spanish cellist and baroque cellist. I graduated from Real Conservatorio Superior de Música de Madrid, Spain, with Bachelor's of Music, specifically cello and baroque cello.
My career as a musician is very extensive, not only in the field of performance, but also in the field of teaching. I started giving private lessons very young at the age of sixteen until now. It gave me the skills to develop self-confidence to improve day by day in my classes and understand the needs of the students, through empathy.
My carrer as a Spanish teacher is extensive too since Spanish is my mother tongue and I am competent to teach you the best Spanish: make you improve your grammatical skills and get a better accent will be my priority.

I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better cellist or Spanish speaker! ;)
