I majored in Spanish at UC Davis, lived in Mexico for 3 years where I completed a Master's degree in Counseling, studied Spanish Literature and Psychology at the University of Costa Rica for 7 months and have traveled around a few other Latin American Countries.
I can do conversation classes and academic ones too. I have a lot of material and activities to facilitate fun learning. My command of the language is almost native. I prefer to work with those who really want to learn, just so we both use our time wisely. I work best with those who already have a base on Spanish but want to prefect their grammar, vocabulary, conjugation, listening and overall language skills.
my name's Jason and I love Spanish and Latin America.
I'm currently a doctoral student. I majored in Spanish at University of California, Davis, lived in Mexico for 3 years where I completed a Master's degree in Counseling, studied Spanish Literature and Psychology at the University of Costa Rica for 7 months and have traveled around a few other Latin American Countries.
My goal is to tailor the lessons to what best helps you learn. I can do conversation classes and academic ones too. I have a lot of material and activities to facilitate fun learning. My command of the language is almost native. I prefer to work with those who really want to learn, just so we both use our time wisely. I work best with those who already have a base in Spanish but want to prefect their knowledge of proverbs
, sayings, jokes, cultural aspects of Spanish, grammar, vocabulary, conjugation, listening and overall language skills. That said, I can work with anyone at any level of Spanish, and have experiences with students from ages 5 to 67.
Want to find out what lessons with me are like? Check out 10 of the articles I wrote on the TakeLessons blog here:
Jason inspired me to have a break-through with my Spanish. As a nurse with many Hispanic patients, after only 3 classes with Jason, I successfully triage'd a patient using almost all Spanish. I was pretty stoked about the whole thing. It was a really good confidence boost to not only use it and be understood by the lady, but I understood her too. Not every little word, mind you, but I was able to pick out a lot of the context and figure out what was going on. Working with Jason makes me feel like I'm opening up a whole new avenue in my practice, even after 15 years of repetition. I have Jason to thank for this and it's just boosted me towards learning more.

Jason is a quality Spanish teacher. Not only does he have a native command of the language (as verified by my Latino co-worker), but Jason is also a skilled language instructor. Two attributes of Jason that I particularly value are his attention to detail and the way he highlights language patterns to facilitate learning. It is evident that Jason has a huge passion for teaching Spanish.

Elena was able to teach someone 500 miles away the basics to a slew of different Latin ballroom dances (salsa, marengue, bachata, cumbia step, etc.) In just a few lessons I was able to feel comfortable enough with the steps and timing to be able to dance in public with others! She was very amazing and was willing to accommodate to my needs as a student. She gave plenty of reference material as well as songs so that I'd be able to practice when not taking lessons. I would highly recommend her as a teacher to anyone who is wanting to learn Latin Ballroom dance, but doesn't know where to start!

My name is Gregorio M. I am a native speaker of Spanish with a very clear pronunciation. I am a Spanish instructor at Washtenaw Community College. I have a degree in chemistry and a master degree in environmental chemistry. I have been working as a Spanish tutor in the Ann Arbor area since 2009. I can teach you all aspects of Spanish language: listening comprehension, pronunciation, reading capacity and analysis, writing, grammar rules, slang and colloquial Spanish, academic Spanish, conversational fluency. Additionally, I could give you, if you are interested, information about Hispanic culture and customs, and more. You can ask me anything about Spanish and get an explanation. If you ask me "Why do people say this or that in Spanish?", you will get a reasonable answer. I'm not one of those teachers who say "It's just because it's lik
Gregorio is a fantastic teacher! Being a language teacher myself, I find that he is extremely knowledgable, friendly, and helps motivate his students to learn. He knows his subject well, how to teach it and how to help you with your specific goals and needs. I have learned so much just in a few weeks and I feel I get better with every lesson. I'm really loving my lessons with him and I am really lucky to have found him!

Gregorio is a wonderful teacher! He was kind and patient with me. I was nervous about starting my very first lesson with Gregorio. He made me feel comfortable speaking Spanish, gently corrected my mistakes, and took the time to give me the origin of the words he taught me. He utilized different scenarios to practice my Spanish. I highly recommend Gregorio. I am already looking forward to my next lesson with him.

One thing I love about teaching is bringing the arts into the process of learning. We may sing in the language and even paint to help learn. I've taught younger than Kindergarten all the way to adults, so feel comfortable that you'll grow in your conversational skills, as well as, beginner vocabulary. Let me highlight that I'm passionate about "phonetics," which is the study and classification of speech sounds. In other words, you are going to learn how to sound like a native speaker when you take my class.
I'm an artist, musician, and language aficionada. I have a Bachelor's Degree from the University of Georgia, graduating with honors as a Magna Cum Laude in Spanish and French Linguistics. I am fluent in both languages. One thing I love about teaching is bringing the arts into the process of learning. We may sing in the language and even paint to help learn.

Why do I like to bring art and music into the learning journey? Let me tell you one of the biggest secrets I've dis
covered. Art and music can allow you to make a joyful memory, which takes the fleeting moment into the longterm part of your brain, causing you to remember more and put it into what you call "muscle memory" all because you're happy!
Speaking of the arts, I play guitar, ukulele, charango, piano, and I sing! I've been a musician since 2000, and I've successfully turned a hobby into something my husband and I have been doing full time for several years. For beginners, something that works best is taking a song that you LOVE and turning it into your anthem on the instrument of your choice. So pick your song and message me!
Last but not least, I'm a painter. Painting is my favorite part of any day. About my childhood, I can candidly say I had the best stepmom. She would let me take her enormous canvases, oil paints, and brushes and just let me at it. Of course at first they were all of my hand prints and rainbows, but she got me curious, and eventually we started going to museums. I've seen Vangogh, Monet, Divinci, Picasso, and many more as they toured through our city. I began to study their techniques and grow my gift. My "Mama Sue" gifted me a hunger for creativity and excellence, and I can't thank her enough. Painting with me, you will grow in your technique, skill, and confidence, and pick up a little artist history along the way.
I'm looking forward to meeting you and helping you accomplish your dreams!
Loren is an amazing teacher. She is patient, kind and caring. She listened to what I needed in preparation for going to Valencia Spain and then customized the lessons. I think we had a lot of fun together as I slowly began to catch on to the dialect of eastern Spain. BTW - she also knows French! I wish her the very best as she continues teaching others!

Loren is a absolute joy! You will feel so empowered to learn guitar for her even after the first lesson. Plus, she uses many other methods to teach guitar that it feels like you’re having fun and learning at the same time.
