I have experience teaching and working with children as well as with adults. I feel comfortable teaching students in all different levels, from the beginner up to the advanced level. The typical approach that I use is a rather communicative one. I like to encourage students to speak and get engaged in real life situations.

I like to know my students, who you are and what your interests are so that I am not just your teacher, but also a friend. I like to think that I am a humorous person and it always makes me feel great when we can share a laugh or two in the class.

Come and join me!

Take lessons with a native Spanish speaker! I have experience working with teen and adults from beginner up to advanced levels. I specialize in grammatical and technical classes as well as conversational ones. I tend to follow a rather communicative teaching approach, motivating students to interact in real situations.

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!

Carolina was an excellent teacher! She was very open and helpful with the plan that I wanted to pursue in terms of topics. It was very easy to communicate with her as she always timely responded to any questions I had. She was very flexible with scheduling the classes, especially if I had any conflicts.

Private Spanish Teacher

If you're looking for top-tier, enjoyable, results-driven tutoring, send me a message. I've been helping students ace their next Spanish exam, paper, project, or standardized test, for over 10 years. But more importantly, I build lasting relationships with my students – meeting on a regular basis; covering all aspects of skill-building, test prep, and organization; and acting as a consistent presence in the student's life.

I speak and write fluently in Spanish. But as a native English speaker, I've learned the Spanish language from the ground up, just like my students.

I currently tutor students attending Horace Mann, Riverdale, Collegiate, Cornell University, and University of Cambridge, as well as adults and younger students.

About Jesse

I'm a professional Spanish, English, Math, and ACT tutor with over 10 years of experience teaching at the high school, middle school, and college levels. I hold a masters degree from Harvard University, a Bachelors degree in Spanish language and Political Science, and a teaching certificate fro

Charlie
Highly recommend Jesse as a Spanish tutor! Have been working with Jesse for almost 9 months (2 hrs + / weekly) and my Spanish fluency has rapidly increased over this period. Jesse's lesson plans are highly curated for my specific goals, learning style and interests. It's been a pleasure working with Jesse and appreciate his willingness to accommodate with my busy work / travel schedule.

General Note: I majored in Spanish undergrad, and have explored a number of different way to continue learning in NYC - group classes and language programs have their value but can not complete with in-person, 1v1 instruction.
Katy C.
A knowledgeable and patient educator, Jesse has found a teaching style that perfectly balances challenge and inspiration. As a doctoral candidate in the sciences, it is important for me to assert my knowledge of a topic while capturing the attention of the reader. Jesse has taught me to transform bare facts and ideas into structured, sophisticated passages. He has played an active role in building my self-confidence and has helped me find an authentic writing voice to more clearly and elegantly express my thoughts. I am grateful to have his guidance and am eager to vouch for his excellence as a tutor.
Laura S.
I am so lucky that I found Jesse! He is thoughtful, thorough, patient, and kind, and his lessons always felt like they were tailored specifically to me and my needs. Even his teaching materials were personalized to include my name and phrases that only I would need to use (i.e. I'm an actress and piano teacher, and I've been living and working in NYC for over ten years). Highly recommended!

Spanish Lessons Near Me

With the first recorded Spanish documents going back 1,000 years, learning the language makes for a rich and fun experience. Four hundred million people speak Spanish worldwide, so there’s no shortage of exciting opportunities to use your language skills. There are 20 countries that consider Spanish their official language, including Chile, Argentina, Ecuador, and Venezuela. Many other countries also have strong Spanish-speaking communities, even if it’s not their official language.

In the U.S., the number of Spanish speakers continues to rise. In fact, within the next 50 years, half of the U.S. population is expected to speak Spanish, so you can use the language both abroad and in your own backyard. You can also delve into the intriguing Spanish culture, history, and art with works from Goya, Picasso, and more!

Why Find a Spanish Tutor?

When you take Spanish tutoring, the sky's the limit with what you can achieve. Regardless of your age, learning the Spanish language will open doors you never thought possible. For starters, you'll be able to make new friends and develop a deeper appreciation for cultural traditions. Online Spanish classes make it possible for you to work one-on-one with a Spanish tutor from any location!

Increased educational and employment options can also open up for Spanish speakers. Not to mention, you'll get to enjoy the best of Spanish literature, including "The General in His Labyrinth" by Gabriel García Márquez and "Don Quixote" by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra. Nothing beats enjoying these masterpieces in their native language!

The Benefits of Spanish Tutoring for Kids

If you want to learn Spanish, it’s never too soon to start. Studies have shown that children who are bilingual are better at multitasking and have longer attention spans than monolingual children. Because your child will learn Spanish at a young age, they'll have a lifetime to perfect the language. This is also a great way to give a boost to their social skills!

Spanish tutors who specialize in working with kids are experts at keeping lesson time fun and engaging. With every in-person lesson or online Spanish class, your child can build their vocabulary and learn the fundamental grammar they need to converse. Most importantly, they’ll learn how to set goals and achieve them, while having fun along the way!

The Benefits of Spanish Classes for Adults

If you think you're too old to learn a new language, think again. Studies have shown that learning an extra language decreases the chances that individuals will develop dementia. It's basically "weightlifting" for the brain, meaning a healthier and happier mind. Cognitive recognition and memory also improve with this type of learning, leading to a "younger brain." 

Wondering about “Spanish classes near me?” Now’s the perfect time to explore them. After all, learning the basics of Spanish can enable you to have a deeper connection with those around you. If you have Spanish speakers in your life that you’d like to communicate with, even speaking a few phrases can go a long way. These types of connections are priceless, and they make the Spanish tutoring time well worth it!

Topics You’ll Learn in Spanish Classes for Kids & Adults

It’s no secret that one-on-one lessons provide a faster learning experience than going it alone. YouTube and online tutorials are helpful, but they won't provide the personal attention and feedback needed to excel.

When learning from a TakeLessons Spanish tutor, lessons are always conducted with your unique needs in mind. The learning approach will differ based on your interests, age, and previous experience with the language. Here's a little more info about what you can expect to learn at each skill level:

Beginner Spanish Tutoring Curriculum

Students hoping to learn basic Spanish often have a variety of goals. Maybe you're looking for casual and conversational knowledge of the language, or maybe your long-term goal is to achieve fluency. Either way, your Spanish tutor will work with you at the beginner level to give you a strong foundation in the language, including:

  • Proper pronunciation
  • Simple greetings and vocabulary words
  • Basic grammar considerations
  • Correct spelling of words
  • Learning basic conversation skills
  • An introduction to Spanish culture

Curriculum Examples for Intermediate Spanish Classes

Once you’ve journeyed to the intermediate level, your motivation will soar as advanced nuances to the Spanish language start to feel attainable. Your Spanish tutor will continuously raise the bar, ensuring that you’ll be ready when it's time to tackle more advanced topics. Some subjects you can expect to cover at this level include:

  • Improving your ability to conjugate irregular verbs
  • Increasing your knowledge of accent marks and their usage
  • A better understanding of complex grammatical rules
  • Learning to understand native speakers better

Curriculum Overview for Advanced Spanish Classes

Once you get to the advanced level, you'll be looking for opportunities to use your language skills both personally and professionally. You can expect to cover advanced concepts with your tutor, including:

  • The ability to produce informal and formal writing 
  • Advanced understanding of tenses
  • Advanced vocabulary
  • Ability to understand slang and language differences by geographical region

Keep in mind that lesson topics can also vary depending on your age. For instance, children generally learn how to speak a language first, before learning the writing and grammar. Either way, when taking one-on-one lessons with a private Spanish tutor, you’ll learn much faster than in a large classroom setting.

With all the choices out there, choosing a Spanish tutor isn't always easy. That's why TakeLessons has streamlined the process, eliminating any unneeded stress along the way.
