David is a great teacher! I began to study French again after a 25 year break. Without much direction, David assessed my level and began to teach me. I have learned so many new things and the lessons are always different and fun. He has a lot of patience, too. I am always sad when our lesson is finished. I highly recommend David!

David teaches my 5 year old daughter, and I can tell that he is a father by the patience, humor and playfulness that he displays.

He is engaging, thoughtful and effective, my daughter spends time after each lesson practicing what she learned because David makes it fun for her.

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 ...

Simply put: Christy is the best! I love having her as my Spanish teacher. She is super patient, extremely knowledgeable and she's able to explain complicated grammar rules in a way that I not only understand but also remember. In only a few weeks I can already see major improvement in my Spanish. I highly recommend her!

Christy is FANTASTIC! My one golden piece of advice is for you to let her help you learn Spanish! With her patience, keen knowledge of the language & excellent instruction I was able to really get a handle on the subjunctive tense. I'm so glad I have her for a teacher!

Initially I like to evaluate the student's current comprehension level (regardless of years studied) to better select the appropriate starting point. From there, if there is a specific subject matter or course work/syllabus for a class that needs to be followed, I can tailor lessons to fit those needs. Throughout lessons, I like to bring in elements such as cartoons, newspapers, movie clips, etc. to aid in understanding everyday usage & make learning practical and pertinent to the student.

**30 minute lessons are available for students interested in Conversational Spanish practice (for Intermediate/Advanced Only). Please send me a message if you are interested & we can discuss how to arrange through TakeLessons.

I love having Kenji teaching me to speak and practice more difficult Spanish. He makes me feel like I can do it. He is patient with my limitations in terms of a mild hearing loss. He provides information for me that I am actually able to read almost 70 percent of and understand. He helps me with sentence structure and verbs as we talk in Spanish. He keeps us focused on task with learning. He is the first Spanish teacher and I have had 8 different ones in immersion courses in Mexico, that I feel may really help me to learn. I need to do more on my part, as I have lost a lot of basic vocabulary and verb tenses and that will be my goal...He is a 5 star instructor.....
