I became fluent while living in Spain for 2 years, so my lessons focus on communication: Students learn via dynamic task-based activities! First they 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 ...

Christy is fantastic. I have had a couple lessons with her now. I am very happy with her. She did a great job with her initial assessment of my level of Spanish comprehension. She provides guidance on what she believes I should cover next and she is still working towards my specific learning objectives at the same time. I would recommend her to anybody.

1st lesson for my son was great. Christy had good videos. She incorporated music which he loved. Gave some sites to use to continue to practice. Overall great lesson. If you want someone patient with kids she's the one.

I'm a collegue of Christy's and have been impressed by her creativity and resourcefulness when it comes to planning her lessons. She is able to bring grammar and vocab to life with the activities she creates! She also is good on her feet when it comes to explaining difficult concepts that students struggle to understand. I think that's why she is able to work with students of all levels! Christy really cares about helping her students learn, and it shows.

I've been teaching Spanish (as well as French and English) for ten years off and on. I tailor the curriculum to the student whether they are simply taking a vacation or wish to live in a Spanish speaking country. I tailor the curriculum according to goals the student has in taking Spanish, any specific countries or cultures the student is most interested in, as well as professional goals.

Masculine & Feminine Spanish Nouns | Test Yourself!
