About Carly A.

Burke, VA
View Full Profile

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Spanish as a foreign language and I am a native speaker. I have more than 3 years of experience teaching students language both as a tutor and a classroom teacher. I want to provide you with a supportive environment where you can learn and reach your potential just like I have done in the past with former students. I believe this is crucial in order for learning to happen.

I use techniques that are researched based as well as techniques I used to learn my languages. As a language learner myself, I understand how challenging it can be to learn a new language! Let's work hard together to improve!

About Carly
For Spanish:
My name is Carly and I am a Spanish teacher who has taught in private and public schools so I'm familiar with the curriculum that is offered there. I gained my first classroom teaching experience when I lived abroad in South Korea and taught English. I transferred all those skills here.

I have taught various subjects from fruits and animals to reading comprehension in the target language. I love teaching and love seeing my students progress. I will tailor the lessons to your needs and goals.

I have been literally to 4 youtube teachers and though I have nothing bad to say about any of them, i know that I need a long term teacher that I can see myself growing with as a singer. Our personalities just meshed. She knows how to make one feel comfortable. She is very encouraging to students with zero self confidence like me. I think I have found the teacher I’ve been looking for in Elena! i’m excited to see what she can do to transform my voice. Her resume as well as her reviews( students spoke highly of her character) are what stood out for me out of thousands of teachers online! It is also important that I love to listen to my teacher’s voice and i love her voice😊

The lesson was very good, and gave us some tools to practice at home before next week.
Amanda May 29, 2018
· Spanish · In studio
I've been working with Graciela over the past 8 months to improve my Spanish grammar and conversational skills. Graciela is excellent at tailoring her teaching style to my evolving skills, and she's great at making sure I have the resources to practice on my own. For someone like me, who has low-intermediate speaking and comprehension skills, it's extremely valuable to have an instructor who conducts sessions almost entirely in Spanish (with only very occasional transitions to English to aid in my understanding of subtle points). Graciela's fluency in both languages makes her an ideal tutor for both beginning and advanced students. I'd absolutely recommend her.

About Jamone L.

Detroit, MI

View Full Profile

I taught and tutored and teach Spanish to USA Veterans and students struggling around campus for years. I have years of academic and practical usage/experience with the language. I grew up hearing it and studied it in high school and college level. I know what it is like to be a student in a Spanish class as well as using it in real life application. I also have 2 minors in Spanish Language and Latino/a and Latin American Studies (Formerly known as CBS: Chicano-Boricua Studies) which give me the perfect mix of language and culture.

I am very patient and work on your level. I have years of academic and practical usage/experience with the language. I use that experience to put myself in your shoes and give tips and cultural things that may help you better understand your new language. Also, my knowledge of Psychology helps us hack learning in a time efficient way. No question is ever a dumb question and we will spend as much time on a topic as needed.

About Jamone
I am very organized and have a passion for creating and doing things that give people a new perspective on life. I set plans and goals, and do what it takes to get things done in the most efficient ways possible and I am able to adapt even when things don’t quite work out. As a 2nd Degree Black Belt Instructor, my discipline and ability to handle things most people cannot has been amplified beyond the average individual. I am dedicated and reliable to my cause!

I love Science, Culture, and Spanish as well as Video Editing/Production and also just being able to over see projects from start to finish. I currently tutor and teach Spanish to Veterans. I have a Bachelor's of Science (BS) with a Major in Psychology from Wayne State University. I also have 2 minors in Spanish Language and Latino/a and Latin American Studies (Formerly known as
CBS: Chicano-Boricua Studies).

I love Language and culture and it's why I love to share it with others.
I would love to be apart of something where I could put my skills to use and be a part of creating something amazing or doing things that can help change people’s lives in a positive way.

Had to write a separate review for this subject. Jamone taught me step-by-step how to use my Cannon Rebel EOS T5. I am a youtube vlogger, and I was looking to create higher quality videos for my viewers. Jamone gave me tons of camera knowledge to better my videos. Thanks!
