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.

Hi guys. I've been teaching Spanish and English for over 20 years and my students have always gone on to C1 of the CEF. since the first few lessons, you'll be able to COMPREHEND, SPEAK, READ and WRITE, , and as time goes on you'll be able specialize in C1, I have developed my own technique but of course I use spanish sources for this matter. Every time I am in front of students, I feel just like when I have been in a concert in front of thousands of people. I really love teaching. see u soon!

Today was my first day and I was very impress. The teacher really cares and is very professional. He takes the time to really teach and there is no rush. I felt very comfortable, looking forward to future lessons.

Sebastián es lo mejor!!! A very knowledgeable and fun teacher that will help increase your confidence in speaking a new language. He is very organized and has a wonderful way of getting to the “root” of the problem areas that may hinder you from speaking like you’ve always wanted. He is a great teacher and a talented musician that will do everything in his power to make sure your language needs are not only met, but exceeded. Gracias Sebastián!

Leah is a stellar instructor. I was simply expecting some tips on vocal technique, and she exceeded my expectations. She is able to meet you at your level, understand the craft as you understand it and then tell you need next to improve.

Moreover, she’s incredibly humble. Despite clearly being skilled at singing, she never makes it a point to come off as unapproachable. She innately understands the importance of the learning spirit and how to create a space that fosters it. If you were on the fence about choosing Leah as an instructor, there’s no need to be.

NEW!!! I am now offering 15 minute CHAT sessions. These are great for just chatting, brushing up on skills, etc. NO VOICE chat sessions! NO VOICE mentor or quick practice sessions! Use them how you would like!

I've been teaching ASL for 21 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of ASL and Deaf culture! I am passionate about teaching, Deaf ministry, and ASL!
Within the first few lessons, you'll start signing simple sentences and as time goes on, you'll be able to converse with people who are Deaf! You will also be learning about the culture of Deaf people at the same time.

PRACTICE PARTNER/SIGN COACH?
Nervous about meeting people who are deaf? Want to learn some tips to get over those first moments of nervousness? Do you just need someone to practice with? I would love to help you!

Some of my students book private lessons with me just to have someone to chat with and practice. The more you practice, the more confidence you will have. Sign up

"I absolutely LOVE Youngju. She's my savior. Her classes are interactive in all kinds of ways possible. She asks for your prior experience and things like that before hand so she knows what kind of learner you are. I'm very comfortable with Youngju and feel like I can even talk to her and ask questions without judgement. She has improved my Korean so much and I'm looking forward to hearing what my Korean will sound like by the end of this year. Thank you so much Youngju ^.^"
