There are several great ways for you to supplement your Spanish lessons with activities that will help you master the language faster. One way is to visit the many great Mexican restaurants in Detroit. When you read a menu written in Spanish, you’re getting a great lesson Spanish grammar and vocabulary.

Another great way to compliment your Spanish lessons in Detroit is to watch Spanish television stations and programs. Many of the stations have closed-captioned translations that will show in English what the actors are saying in Spanish.

When you listen to the pronunciation by native speakers, you’ll start to develop conversational Spanish skills. If there are any Spanish-speaking radio programs featuring Latin American music, you should tune in and listen for a couple hours per week, too.

Mexicantown, which is located along Bagley Ave. and Vernor Highway near the Detroit River on the city’s east side, has many great venues to visit where you can immerse yourself in Hispanic and Latin American culture.

Spanish is my second language. My mother was a Spanish teacher in the elementary school level and used music as an amazing resource for teaching Spanish to kids. I'll use the same techniques and ideas, as well as focusing on reading and writing the very romantic language.

About Olivia
I love to create. The way I'm most comfortable creating is through writing; whether it's a song, a short story, a poem or a script. Writing has always been the bass line in my life; the heartbeat.

Music and film are both passions of mine. I graduated from Berklee College of Music where I studied Songwriting and Music Therapy. I was pushed to my absolute limits lyrically and musically within these majors, and I am so grateful for it now that I'm on my own creative journey.

I have a great deal of experience, but I am also still learning. I think it is very important as a teacher to always be learning, especially through their students. Teaching these lessons is, of course, about progress and advancement - but also about enjoyment, confidence building and positive encouragement.

I've been teaching Spanish for five years and my students have gone on to speaking and writing. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to understand the language and as time goes on you'll be able to speak and write it; your grades will go up. I specialize in pronunciation and writing, typically use Spanish Now books, and have the following tools available for your lessons:cd's,videos and music. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

I studied Spanish and lived in Ecuador for a year where I volunteered at a school and edited a Spanish textbook. I can help beginning and intermediate students with speaking, reading, writing and grammar. I promise to make your Spanish classes interesting and fun. If you would like to study Spanish literature or film we can incorporate those into our lessons. I love the Spanish language and would be happy to help you achieve Spanish proficiency while cultivating a love for the language. I offer a free consultation to discuss Spanish lessons.

About Marie
I have been an educator for more than ten years. In that time, I've taught and tutored English, Language Arts and Spanish to students from elementary to PhD level. I also help students study for the SAT, ACT and TOEFL tests and coach students through the college and graduate school application process. I love teaching and learning. I am patient, enthusiastic and dedicated to my students.

My teaching philosophy can be summed up in a few words : learning should be fascinating, individualized and fun. Helen Keller said, “ A well-educated mind will always have more questions than answers.” My goal is to help my students ask the questions that will lead them to deeper understanding. The poet Mark Van Doreen said, “The art of teaching is the art of assisting discovery.” In our lessons, I will help you make discoveries that will inspire you
to keep learning.

When I’m not teaching, I love reading, exploring the California coast, writing poetry and singing loudly.

I currently tutor and teach Spanish to USA Veterans and students struggling around campus. 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.

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 Language and culture and it's why I love to share it with others.

My lessons will really focus on the grammar. When learning a new language, it's not so important to always use proper grammar, but knowing the grammar patterns will make remembering and studying vocabulary easy.

About Diante
I speak 4 foreign languages fluently: German, Spanish, French, and Japanese. I started my teaching career by teaching Spanish in daycares around Chicago. I've also taught English to students in Guayaquil, Ecuador. This includes a brief couple of weeks where I substituted in a University.
