I am proficient in Spanish and completed three years of study. As a substitute teacher I have taught Spanish classes on several occasions. As a professional tutor, I have helped individual students learn Spanish.

"Great tutor."
- Gerald G.Cibolo, TX on 6/19/13

Tim was an excellent tutor for my teenage son. He was always on time for their tutoring sessions, very accomendating to our busy schedule, and was very patient with my student. Tim adjusted and flexed to my son's tutoring needs. Tim changed channels and assisted with English as well as with Spanish as my son's studying needs dictated. He challenged my son and taught him how to determine the answer; he did not just give my son the answers. My student received fantastic scores on his homework and tests after studying with Tim. My son and I are very pleased with Tim as a tutor; I think you will be, too. We recommend Tim to meet your tutoring needs.

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Spanish as a foreign language, Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction and I am a native speaker. I have more than 3 years of experience teaching students language both as a tutor and a classroom teacher. I want to provide you with a supportive environment where you can learn and reach your potential just like I have done in the past with former students. I believe this is crucial in order for learning to happen.

I use techniques that are researched based as well as techniques I used to learn my languages. As a language learner myself, I understand how challenging it can be to learn a new language! Let's work hard together to improve!

First of all, my classes are fun and interesting. I adapt the content, strategy, mood, activities and level according to the student´s needs and age level.
They are student centered, meaning the student participates almost just about as much as the teacher, in other words, they are very dynamic. I utilized a hands-on communicative approach intertwined with mixed strategies for the purposes of inclusivity, as every person is unique, whatever is your strength in learning, I will cover it. I work on the pronunciation to try to get the learner to pronounce as close to a native speaker as possible. My classes are in a spirel shape which go forward and backwards to reinforce the previous learning, and steady evaluation.
I tell the student about the Hispanic culture and history and the similarities among the English language or other languages that I have knowledge.
My classes are curriculum based, they follow a pattern of real-life functionality combined with grammar to produce effective ...

About Paul

I focus in getting the student happy, meaning, quality of classes provided and a good relationship. That said, I do an assessment of the student´s needs and objective for taking the Spanish language classes. Following that, I develop a custumized curriculum according to those needs.

She is kind, patient and extremely knowledgeable about the language. She not only helps me learn Spanish, but she can explain origins of many words and phrases. She dedicates herself completely to our lessons and provides materials for me to do on my own time to supplement. I've been working with Claudia for over a year now and plan to continue! She is outstanding."
