I first heard Spanish from my dad who's Colombian, so my lessons focus on communication via dynamic task-based activities! First you discover grammar functions & the meaning of vocab through simple comprehension activities. Then we practice these new items through conversation questions or communication activities that simulate real-life tasks like ordering food, asking for directions, or describing a person. This creates a fun atmosphere for learning and gives students ample opportunities to speak! I also like to use multimedia like videos, pictures and powerpoints to make lessons more interactive, especially online lessons! For beginners, I use the book Spanish Demystified or Easy Spanish Step by Step as a learning resource and to provide grammar homework.

Besides speaking, my lessons also cover the other aspects of a language: Reading, writing and listening comprehension. I target those skills with activities such as short readings & writing assignments for homework, and themed ...

About Christy

I was exposed to Spanish throughout my childhood from my dad who is from Colombia, and from my great Spanish teachers. After minoring in it at college, I perfected my fluency from living in Spain for 2 years and studying it for 18 years! My adventures with the language led me to pursue an MA in Spa

I appreciate her willingness to accommodate me and my schedule and, although I have only had 1 lesson so far, can feel that I am already growing in knowledge and confidence. I really like that she gives me assignments I can work on between lessons so that I can make the most of my lesson time with her.

I have been teaching Korean to teenagers and adults for 5 years. All lessons are catered to students' needs and meet the objective of generating independent student output in correct grammar and full sentences. We will be covering reading, writing, listening, speaking, pronunciation, and others. I am flexible with meeting locations for ongoing lessons, so please let me know if you want to adjust the location. I believe that learning should be fun, interactive, and invigorating. Let's begin our journey together! :)

About my classes:

I strive to provide the best, most interactive online English classes for every student. We will discuss your needs and obtainable goals so that I can personalize your course material in order to reach them.

Some of the ways I integrate technology to make online lessons more effective are:

-Using collaborative slides to be able to work on the materials in real time.
-Online tools and resources in order to make the classes more interactive.
-Alternative assessment using a variety of content creation in English (see below).

Project-based learning and assessment is authentic language use in speaking, listening, reading and writing activities. Students are assigned creative projects based on real-life use of the language. The content is used to create an ebook, website, training or other presentation. Their project is used for studying, reviewing and as a measure of progress and assessment over time.

Students can choose to participate in this ...

"I had a difficult time deciding on a teacher in the past on here because of early reviews people had after only one lesson. I decided to wait until I took all 10 of my one hour lessons with Victoria to give my insight. It has been a great experience me, and whether you are a little experienced with Deaf culture and sign language, or know absolutely nothing, I know you will benefit from taking classes with Victoria. I have felt my confidence communicating with Deaf people increase and I can feel that I am getting better each week. It has been great being able to go at (what I consider) a fast pace and not having to go at the slower pace of a large class, while still getting the attention to detail and ensuring that I am understanding and following the correct grammar and signs. I recommend that, while you take classes, you practice and put in work outside of that time so you can benefit even more from her lessons. I'm already looking forward to the next 10 lessons and hopefully more!"

"My girls (8 and 11 years old) really enjoyed their lessons with Simona. She was able to structure the lessons to meet their individual needs and interests. One of my favorite moments was coming home from work to see yellow post it notes on many household appliances and furniture as she had the girls go label these items in Italian as a fun little "quiz". Simona was the perfect solution to introducing my girls to the language of their relatives. We'll be back once our schedule allows."
