Take lessons with a native Spanish speaker! I've been helping students reaching their Spanish goals for 12 years. I'm mostly experienced in adult learning (+40 years old students), from beginner up to advanced levels. I like to follow a communicative teaching approach, motivating students to interact in real situations, we are going to learn but also have fun! I specialize in grammatical and technical classes as well as conversational ones.

There’s nothing like the feeling of a good class, a class that was enjoyed by the teacher and the students, so I always try to create a bond between students so that classes are more customized. It also helps to develop confidence and promotes the use of Spanish in the class. It doesn’t matter the topic and the focus of the lesson, humor, laughter and little jokes are a must in all classes to break the ice and to make the class more pleasant.

I can't wait to get started!

My son has been singing with Dan for almost a year now. Dan has been incredibly patient and caring. He's an excellent singing instructor.
Dave
Dan has a great style of instruction, he is very friendly and easy going and this makes taking the lessons very comfortable. Dan has great patience as I was too busy to do much preparation for the lessons but Dan made it work and I still progressed with the Danish language. I will be back as soon as things slow down for me.

Micah is great!
Fernanda F.
No one ever told me before what I was saying wrong, and Micah would correct me so that I could improve.

She has specialized trademarked drills that she has created so that we train my muscles to move exactly with the true sounds of English as opposed to accent courses that show you the sounds alone. No sounds are said by themselves, so we do drills that incorporate full sentences so that I sound more like a native speaker. She even created Sound Like Americans Accent bootcamp course, and she gave me that for free that I use for the rest of my life and follow the 2-minute drills every day.

We also worked on presentations so that I could improve my pronunciation for the exact words that I would be using in my meetings with clients.

Micah is the best! She’s so nice and a certified expert in teaching people of all levels how to speak languages. I took the Spanish class. It was phenomenal and worth every penny!

How to Teach Deaf Children to Read
