About Mariella
Buenos dias a todos!
I am a native Spanish Tutor with a degree in the field of Education and certified by the State of Georgia in the fields of Early Childhood Education and Spanish. I have years of experience teaching my own language to adults, middle and high schoolers (individuals and small groups) as well as teaching Spanish to children from Pre-Kindergarten to Middle School in private schools. I am currently tutoring adults,middle school, high school, and college students.
Sometimes learning a foreign language can be overwhelming and frustrating, which is why I focus my lessons on UNDERSTANDING and SPEAKING Spanish from the very first class. My method is fun and you will learn real-life Spanish.
I have traveled a lot in Latin America , and have visited different Spanish-speaking countries. Thus, I am familiar with the regional dif
ferences of the language. I'm a very reliable person and nothing makes me happier than seeing my students make progress. My rates are competitive based on my experience. References available upon request.
Online tutoring offered at this moment only.
Please e-mail me if interested to let me know your needs and schedule.
Hasta luego!
Mariella G.

She's a great teacher. Very pleasant and very good sense of humor. She knows I am very busy at work and her teaching methods are catered to my needs. She continues to review the basics and makes sure I comprehend the vocabulary before we proceed. I highly recommend her.

Brilliant instructor, fun and memorable exercises make it a class to look forward to. The improved atmosphere in learning with Mariella has allowed me to attain a more rapid progress that was conversationally and occupationally useful much sooner than I anticipated. Working with an instructor one on one also helps greatly decrease anxiety of learning when you will need to try your new skills on others who may not know you well if at all. The lessons she gives, along with the adjuncts on learning recommended, provide an efficacious and complete Spanish learning system where the goal you personally desire will be obtained, be it for travel, occupational, or cultural purposes. I cannot get over how many years I've studied Spanish using books and computer programs and audio CDs in the car, but then to make more progress in a short time than I had over years locks in that speaking high quality Spanish will be in your future if you continue with this instructor and follow her careful guidance.

About Jonathan "JC"
Hello! Bonjour!

The way I teach is simple and fun! I am patient and dedicated to your success.

My name is Jonathan. I am a 33 year old French-American man living and working in Minneapolis Minnesota. I will be your teacher today.

I am a happy husband and step-father who moved to Minnesota in 2015 to live with the wife Sophia and 2 kids: Blake and Samara, 15 and 13 (11th, and 8th grade this year).

I have been a professional photographer for more than 14 years now. It is my full-time job. I also practice traditional Indian-Himalayan SunYoga, meditation, acupressure. I have participated in healing cancer patients and all kinds of diseases in 4 different countries (USA, France, Serbia, India).

In 2015, before I moved to the USA, I was the President of a Non Profit Organization called SUNYOGA France, French branch of the main
NPO from India called UNIVERSAL PEACE CENTER, for yoga, research, education, and humanitarian programs. I am now working on creating the American branch of the association. It will be called SUNYOGA AMERICA.

WHAT ABOUT TEACHING? Everybody wants the best. I believe QUALITY is the most important. I also believe each person is UNIQUE and should be treated in a unique way with unique lessons.

What comes first? Question or answer? When we arrive on our first day at school do we have final exams? First the teacher shares knowledge during class. Depending on the teacher's talent, passion, and love for his work, the students will learn something. Then only we have exams.

Hopefully wisdom will come out of this process. All we need is a little support to all grow together.

Teaching is a big responsibility. Parents and teachers, it is our duty to teach the best. Let's do our best together. Thank you.

As a photographer my motto is
ENLIGHTEN YOUR EVENT, BRING LIFE TO YOUR STORY

About Jutta
Native German Lady, I was told that I speak a nice pleasant German, It is not totally "Hochdeutsch" but a bit softer with no defined dialect. So, you then can go anywhere and be understood. My goal is to teach correct pronunciation, grammar and positioning. I am a logical, analytical teacher with the patience of a saint. We will have fun together. There are always surprises in the lessons because one word can spark interest into a different direction and suddenly we are somewhere else together. It is never ever boring or hard work. Let's have fun!

I've had Jutta as my tutor for months now and she's been one of the best German tutors I've ever had. She made me realize the importance of verb conjugation and recognizing strong, weak, and mixed verbs and their infinitive forms. I really learned a lot from her and highly recommend her to everyone.
