Spanish I-IV tutoring offered, Spanish phonics and pronunciation assistance

About Daniel
My name is Daniel B. I have my A.A. Degree and I am currently a junior at Washington University in St. Louis. I am majoring both in Psychology and Biology with a strong emphasis on counseling, research and medicine.

Since its founding in 2006, I have been involved Neighbor to Neighbor Outreach (NTNO), a non-profit organization whose goal it is to insure that the children, youth, and adults of inner-city St. Louis are provided tutoring for every imaginable subject.

My teaching style is quite simple and effective. I initially gauge the student's level of understanding of the subject or skill that he/she wishes to master. I then create a comprehensive learning plan which pushes the student to his/her limits while making the learning process both enjoyable and rewarding.

If you find yourself in need of my assistance, just let me kn
ow. I am able to work around your schedule and I am available to be contacted anytime.

*** Lesson Details ***
Initial Lesson:

- Subject understanding is determined.
- Necessary areas of improvement are determined.
- Preferred and/or most efficient study style is determined.
- Goals are set.

Each lesson will vary according to the student. As far as music studies are concerned, we will begin by ensuring mastery of the basics such as note recognition, chords, and correct fingering.

For each subject, the pattern will be similar. We will work on the basics and then we will progress commensurately.

Daniel was the perfect tutor for my son's prep for the GED. He was patient, prepared to help with test taking skills along with the actual content of the tests, and made himself available on a very short notice. In addition, Daniel is just a nice, respectful person that was a pleasure to interact with. I can not say enough. Highly recommend him!

Personalised and dynamic classes for all levels!
Lessons are shaped to the student's need: grammar, vocabulary, fluency, accent...

About Raquel
Hi!

I have been tutoring students since I was an undergrad back in Spain. While doing so, I realised there are very few better feelings besides the satisfaction of being a part of the improvement of your student's skills and knowledge.

I hold a Bachelor's degree in philology, so I have a deep knowledge on how languages construct themselves and work. Besides, I have a Master's degree in Literary Studies and am currently a PhD student in Literary Studies. But most importantly, I was born in Madrid (Spain) and lived there for over twenty years, so you'll get to learn Spanish and its culture from a truly Madrilenian!

My tutoring approach is based mostly on theory and practice, with a lot of perseverance! I usually like to teach some aspect of the language and then make the student approach it in a practical way. Lessons can be tailor
ed to meet the student's specific needs, though! Each student is different from the rest, and therefore learns in an individual way and at an individual pace. Personal tutoring will always be provided to ensure you're always getting what you need: grammar, vocabulary, fluency, accent...

Raquel is a very meticulous and gifted teacher. She was well prepared from the very first lesson and she always made sure her explanations were clear before moving on. She helped dispel many doubts I carried along in my mind for a long time in Spanish grammar. The classes are fun, friendly, and are aimed at the serious-minded student. Highly recommended.

I know conversation can be hard but I will make sure to give you the confident to speak Spanish.I have experience teaching all ages and all kinds of students.

Let's avoid complications and misunderstandings. Gracias.

About Mariana

Hi and thank you for reading my intro. I have been living in the USA for 17 years. In college, my undergraduate studies were in Music and Creative Writing. I also studied video production as part of a certificate program. Right now, I am preparing to go to graduate school and have a Masters in languages, Spanish and linguistic.

Please if you don't see a time that works for you, message me to see what I can do. Do not get classes out of the time I offer before you talk me, you run the risk of me not being able to accommodate you. Sometime I make special accommodation but these are not regular schedule classes. Thank you. I am from Chile and I have a very neutral Spanish becaus

e I have lived in some many places. I love teaching on skype and in person, and I have had several jobs teaching conversational Spanish classes to pre-schoolers, college students, and the staff of a community college. I have also tutored ESL to international college students.

I had high hopes for my first Spanish Lesson so I was beyond delighted by what a wonderful person as well as teacher Mariana was. After just one lesson I knew more than I did after several attempts to learn Spanish with tapes and videos etc. Mariana has renewed my faith in the power of a great teacher! I totally recommend her to everyone who wants to learn Spanish.

Hi everyone! My name is Carolina and I'm from Spain. I have a bachelors degree in Spanish and a Masters in Spanish language and literatures. Teaching is my passion and I have been a teacher for more than 10 years! I believe in a comfortable and fun learning environment to conect with my students and help them to reach their goals. My classes combine different activities and are dynamic, fun and effective! Every lesson is a chance for the student to explore a vibrant culture and speak Spanish.

About Carolina
Hi, there! My name is Carolina and I can't wait to meet you!
I am a native of Mallorca (Spain) and I've been teaching private lessons since 2006. Teaching is one of my passions in life and I love helping my students in their journey into the vibrant Spanish language and cultures. I went to the University of Wisconsin and earned a Masters in Spanish language and literatures in 2014. Now I'm pursuing my PhD in Spanish Literature focusing on Spanish 20th century poetry. I'm an enthusiastic and positive person and try to reflect that in my teaching. I am very dedicated to my work and I always create the lesson according to the student personality and needs. Whether you want to start learning Spanish from the beginning or want to improve your skills, I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

Carol is definitely one of the best instructors. She's the perfect combination of what a student needs to learn Spanish. Carol has an amazing pedagogy on top of being a native speaker. Sometimes we forget that being a native speaker does not automatically mean that one knows how to teach, but Carol is great because she knows how to teach her native language. On top of that, she's patient, accommodating and funny, which helps anybody who's trying to learn a new language!

I am a HS teacher of Spanish and English as a second language. I come from the school district that is 88% Hispanic at the elementary, 65% Middle school and 35% high school. I have to accommodate students with different language abilities and different levels of formal education day in and day out. My lessons are very dynamic. I make my classroom materials relevant to every day life; however, if a professional requires help with specific vocabulary required for work, I make it happen as well. I vary modes of presentation to accommodate different learning styles. I also make sure to acknowledge the age of my clients by selecting proper level of materials.

About Olga
I hold three different college degrees: two Bachelors-one in teaching Spanish and one in Teaching German and English as a Second Language. I also have a Master's Degree in Composition and Literature. My passion is in teaching and learning new languages. I taught Spanish at a college level for a number of semesters as an adjunct instructor. Primarily, I work as a HS language teacher: Spanish and English as a Second language.
I have taught specialty classes for a few industrial companies in Winona, MN, helping managers to acquire some work related Spanish prior to travelling to plants in Mexico. I also have done private tutoring for a variety of ages.

Have you ever wondered what it'd be like to understand your Mexican coworker? Or maybe just once you've asked yourself what is going on in those soap operas with terrible actors that Latinos watch... No? Well, maybe you just really wanna learn Spanish to broaden your cultural senses and communicate with an amazing community through their own language; whether it's for personal, business, or any other reason I will help you achieve your goals.

I'm a young and charismatic person who grew up in the city of Medellín, Colombia. There, for almost 16 years, I mastered the use of the Spanish language and made it my mother tongue. The rest of my life I've spent in the US and Canada where I also learned English since a young age.

Conversational Spanish is my strength, and naturally, they can become yours too; but lessons can also be tailored to improve your reading and writing skills.

About Juan
Learning Spanish has never been easier with Rosett.... I mean Juan. If you wanna be introduced to real-life conversational situations in the Spanish language and improve your skills, come to me.
