About Christy
¡Hola!

I was exposed to Spanish throughout my childhood from my dad who is from Colombia, and from my amazing Spanish teachers in secondary school. After minoring in it at college, I perfected my fluency from living in Spain for 2 years and studying it for over 15 years! My adventures with the language led me to pursue an MA in Spanish. I am currently a PhD student in Spanish Literature and work as a university instructor for basic Spanish and Spanish conversation. I've also been tutoring individual and small groups of all levels for the past 5 years -- Young children, high schoolers, college students, and adult learners! I enjoy leading creative, interactive lessons that are different for each student I work with. My students have gone on to pursue bilingual positions, live in South America, or improve their performance in Spanish
class by 2+ letter grades! I truly enjoy the work I do in helping others learn an important new skill.

Because I became fluent while immersed in the language, I believe language learning comes from speaking and communicating! So, my lessons focus mainly on speaking. I create interactive activities that help students learn speaking skills like making comparisons or ordering food. I also make sure to cover other aspects of the language (grammar, listening comprehension, reading, and writing) through explanations, in-class activities and homework. But, every lesson I teach is different! I tailor them to each student according to level, goals, pace, and learning style. And I make sure to get feedback from students at the end of each lesson to help plan future lessons. Overall, I am a resourceful, enthusiastic, attentive and creative tutor. I strive to challenge students while creating a comfortable and fun learning environment. Students of any level are welcome!

I look forward to possibly working with you... ¡Hasta pronto!

About Judy
Master's Degree in Piano Performance
Bachelor's Degrees in Performance and Writing&Production

I started learning piano when I was about 3 years old. Music has always been a big part of my life: I was very fortunate enough to grow up surrounded by music. I believe that music has the power to deliver energy to listeners and that it is musicians' responsibility to convey the positive energy and to share the joy of it. Music is a way of communication for everyone!
I was trained classically, and learned improvisation afterwards, so I am capable of reading, improvising, and accompanying. Also, I have played at churches for worship bands and choirs. I studied Theory of Jazz and Popular Music as a minor, along with dual majors at Berklee College of Music.
I was a software tutor at Berklee College of Music, where I taught DAWs(Digital Audio
Workstation) such as Pro Tools, Logic Pro, Finale, Digital Performer, Garage Band, etc.

My teaching philosophy emphasizes on supporting students find joy in their learning process as they aim for mastery in their skills.
For I understand that every student has different ways of learning, I highly encourage students to be proactive in designing a lesson format.

My performances and production demos are available at:

About Guillermo
My name is Guillermo Ferrero and I have been teaching since 1989, when while working in Geneva, Switzerland, I had colleagues from many countries around the world. I began teaching English and Spanish to those colleagues who wished to acquire a working knowledge of either language. I helped these co-workers acquire skills in Spanish or English according to their needs as well as some grammatical skills to help them gain proficiency in these languages.
I graduated from the University of Essex in England, in 1979 with a BA in Literature and obtained an MBA from the University of Miami in 1989. As an undergraduate, I studied Art History, philology and World History, which helped me gain broader insights on various cultures, their literature and history. I used these insights together with the skillset acquired in the MBA program to enhance
the scope of subjects I teach, adding skills such as the use of applications like MS Office Suite to offer students a broader range of information.

Hola amigos!

My name is Erika Hoffman Garcia and I would love to teach you Spanish! I am the daughter of a German- American father and Panamanian mother. I am 100% bilingual in both English and Spanish. I grew up mostly in Latin America living in Costa Rica, Chile, Panama amongst visiting countries such as Peru, Dominican Republic, Argentina, Nicaragua, and Spain. If you want help on your Spanish homework, need someone to quiz you, converse with you etc. or need assistance in reading, writing and speaking the language I'm here to help! I make learning fun and more than anything I teach it in an applicable way so that you can use it as an every day language and not as just a way to pass a class. I have a Bachelors of Arts in Theatre Arts from Loyola Marymount University so if you want to include Spanish Soap Operas into the mix we can
definitely do that! Cheers to learning a new language!

About Logan
I am a twenty-six year old language enthusiast with over nine years of Spanish language experience. I have had the opportunity to visit 9 countries including Spain, Peru, Colombia, and Mexico. I also lived in the Dominican Republic for 2 months teaching English.

My tutoring repertoire includes 4 years of college tutoring and 3 years as a Wyzant tutor. In addition to Spanish, I tutor both Algebra and French. When I tutor, I like to make the learning process as pain-free and enjoyable as possible. To facilitate this, I often use worksheets to get the point across. In my language classes I also tend to teach material in English first, then try to ease into speaking in the foreign language.

I hope you see me as a good fit!
