About Erika I.

Close

I have experience teaching and working with children as well as with adults. I feel comfortable teaching students in all different levels, from the beginner up to the advanced level. The typical approach that I use is a rather communicative one. I like to encourage students to speak and get engaged in real life situations.

I like to know my students, who you are and what your interests are so that I am not just your teacher, but also a friend. I like to think that I am a humorous person and it always makes me feel great when we can share a laugh or two in the class.

Come and join me!

Esther is a great teacher and I highly recommend her, especially to those who want to improve their fluency and to those (like me) who are just too afraid to start speaking Spanish. Lessons with her are always fun and interesting, and she always knows how to explain everything in a simple and understandable way!

I am a native Spanish speaker who has been teaching and tutoring Spanish for about 7 years. My goal is to make learning Spanish enjoyable, and I want to help the student feel more confident expressing their thoughts and ideas in a foreign language. I am very patient and supportive of my students all throughout the learning process .

My approach strikes a balance between grammar and verbal comprehension/ speaking skills. I try to lay a strong foundation that will help the student succeed on every level.
Often students do a lot of written exercises but seldom have an opportunity to put into practice what they have learned. That is why conversation is such a fundamental part of my lessons.

I understand the difficulties of learning a foreign language, I carefully tailor the lessons to the needs of my students. I slowly guide them from point A to point B, step by step. With this approach, I help them to discover how truly fun learning Spanish can be!

About Irene
I am a College educated native Spanish and English speaker who has been teaching and tutoring Spanish for about 7 years. My goal is to make learning Spanish enjoyable, and I want to help the students feel confident expressing their thoughts and ideas in this foreign language.

My approach is student centered, incorporating grammar, verbal comprehension and vocabulary acquisition . I try to lay down a strong foundation that will help the student succeed on every level and eventually attain fluency.
I'm often approached by people who tell me that they took Spanish in H.S. or College and are frustrated because they can't understand a native speaker or communicate with them.
Most likely they learned the theory of the language but had little opportunity to put it into practice. That is why conversation is such a key component of my teach
ing. No one can learn any language without developing verbal and listening comprehension skills.
With me the student can choose their favorite topic and perfect their conversation skills in an environment where it's ok to make mistakes.

I understand the difficulties of learning a foreign language, and I'm very patient with my students. I carefully guide them from point A to point B, step by step. With this approach, I help them to discover how learning Spanish can be truly rewarding !
I look forward to meeting you and helping you reach your goals.

Do you want to learn to speak one of the most important languages in the world? There are approximately 480 million native level Spanish speakers in the world today, therefore, learning Spanish can open you up to a world of new possibilities. I have experience teaching Spanish to people of all ages ranging from beginner to advanced levels. I use a very communicative approach when teaching because I think that is the best way to stimulate the mind for language learning.

I love talking with people about a wide range of subjects which means there will never be a dull moment in one of my classes. I'm very flexible with my lessons and my classes can be adapted to my student's needs whether they are preparing for an exam, learning Spanish for fun, or trying to better there communication skills. I'm also available for strictly conversational classes for more advanced students who would like to work on their pronunciation and fluency. I can create custom packages that will accommodate your

About Jorge
I am a native Spanish speaker from Nicaragua who loves to talk about a vast amount of topics, meaning there will always be something interesting to talk about in my classes.

I studied civil engineering at the National University of Engineering in Managua, Nicaragua. Since I was a child I greatly admired the dedication and patience of my teachers in while teaching students many different subjects. At an early age I realized that there was great potential in me to teach, my first teaching experience was in high school when I taught a group of people older than me to read and write for the very first time. At that time I could feel the magic and pride when people could read and write for the first time, that feeling is what has motivated me since that day to want to teach. My great interest in cultures and languages has made my interest i
n teaching grow even more. I learned English to be able to communicate in a more open way and have the opportunity to teach my language and be able to talk about my culture.

I have had the opportunity to teach Spanish as a second language to many groups of English speaking missionaries, to be a part of someone learning Spanish and be able to see them communicate without the need of a translator, it is something that fills me with a lot of pride.

Every student is a new opportunity to inspire and improve a life. I look forward to that every day.

This was my first lesson with Jorge and I was very impressed with his teaching ability. I have a good knowledge of Spanish from my childhood days in Chile and was seeking to refresh my Spanish capability. He was very encouraging and had some excellent ideas as to how we can best proceed. I am looking forward to continuing lessons with Jorge Fiero!

Jorge is one of the best teachers that I've ever worked with. He is great at explaining topics in a way that is very easy to understand. His classes are always fun as he always has topics to talk about that catch your interest. I had multiple Spanish teachers before Jorge and I learned more with Jorge in a matter of a few months than I did with any of the other teachers combined over 2 years. I would highly recommend Jorge to anyone looking to learn Spanish whether you are a beginner or more advanced.

About Oresmary A.

Homestead, FL
View Full Profile

I am a native from Cuba, so my first language is Spanish. Everyone in my house speaks Spanish and I would like to teach Spanish to those who need Spanish in this fast-growing economy that is really in need of new Spanish-speakers in order to compete within the working industries. I took all 5 years of Spanish in Elementary (as expected), 3 years of Spanish in middle school, and 1 year of Spanish in High School. For middle school, I received an excellence award for having the best grades and the best test scores out of all the Spanish students in my school. I’m a very patient person and I love helping others, so I expect my students to learn a lot from me. This is because I have a lot of knowledge in the Spanish language and a lot of passion for extending the Spanish-speaking fluency.

About Oresmary
I will be doing tutoring sessions for anyone interested in learning more about the violin, the voice, the piano, and anything else related to music. I have performing experience ranging from childhood to early adulthood and I may also include performing advice for those who struggle with “stage fright”, or those who simply would like to become better performers. I’m a former orchestral player that performed in a Tennessee competition called Fiestaval. I am also a Soprano singer capable of singing operatic pieces. I speak both English and Spanish, but I can sing in English, Italian, Latin, and Spanish.

Apart from music, I also teach Spanish lessons to those who are interested in learning the Spanish language.

Tutoring will be held in the location deemed appropriate for both the student and I.

I look forward to helping those
who are as passionate for music and Spanish, as I am. I expect to learn as well, since that is a teacher’s reward; to be able to learn as they teach.

I am a licensed Spanish teacher for grades 7-12. I learned Spanish, my second language, by living with a Spanish family in Valencia, Spain, and by studying at the University of Valencia for two semesters. I am in my 9th year of teaching Junior High/High School Spanish, and I also have been tutoring Spanish one-on-one as well as group lessons for 7 years.

Thanks to the internet, I invite the world into our lessons! I use many online resources to support all facets of the learning process, i.e., reading, listening, writing, speaking (the highest rung for the skill ladder). This approach enables my students to practice/grow between lessons, AND it exposes them to the many different sounds of Spanish (depending on which of the 21 Spanish-speaking countries the speaker is from). When I am supporting Spanish students, these websites are particularly helpful with more difficult grammar tasks. When the student I am tutoring uses such websites during our lessons, s/he is provided with ...

About Cheryl
I am a Licensed Spanish Teacher, and I am fluent, flexible and fun!! I would love to help you with Spanish--whether you are just beginning or in AP classes!

Why? Because I love Spanish! I began learning Spanish in a middle school in the Midwest. It was my second language--just like it is for you. So, I know what helped me remember the vocabulary and the grammar rules, and I am ready to share my personal tips and tricks with you.

My immersion experience included living with a Spanish family in Valencia, Spain, and by studying at the University of Valencia for two semesters. What an eye-opening experience!!

I have completed 9 years of classroom teaching at the Junior High/High School level. I also have been tutoring Spanish since 2012. Besides supporting middle/high school and college students, I also taught a 6-month course
to managers at a distribution center for a very popular fast-food chain.

So, when would you like me to start helping you improve your progress in Spanish? I am ready when you are!

Cheryl is a great teacher! She taught me first in introductory Spanish and then in Intermediate Spanish. When I first started Spanish, I did not know any Spanish at all, and I came out able to speak, listen, and write in Spanish. Overall, I have learned so much over the past two years and it is all thanks to Cheryl.

About Victor M.

Chicago, IL

View Full Profile

My pedagogy is constructivist and interdisciplinary . This means students learn Spanish not just from textbooks and exercises but mostly from using and practicing the language through the arts and through their personal experiences with it. Poems, music, plays, movies, podcasts, voiceover, and many other art forms are the main resource of knowledge and go hand in hand with a technical review by the instructor.

About Victor
I have been extremely passionate about teaching Acting and Spanish for over 10 years (and have been an English as a Second Language student for 30!!) I am a native of Mexico City but made Chicago my home three years ago when I decided to continue my acting career in such a lovely city.

(Acting bio above)

Spanish: I started teaching Spanish while I was doing my degree at the University of Exeter in the UK. I helped some of my actor colleagues learn the basics of Spanish and when I moved back to Mexico I decided to professionalize my teaching and took an intensive course focused on teaching Spanish to beginners. During that course I fall in love with my native language and decided to take another intensive course this time focused on Advance Spanish. During that course I learned beautiful nuances and details about this amazing langu
age.
Since I have an artistic background, I try to create multidisciplinary classes so that my students can learn Spanish mainly through the arts and not through condensed and heavy books (though they are part of my teaching since I believe theory is of extreme importance in any field of study).

As a bilingual person, I've learned that language is the door to other cultures. Many times we are attracted to a language because we love a country that speaks it, songs we like to sing and dance to, tasty gastronomy, our parents, friends, among many more things. It is language who help us relate to others, understand their ways of thinking, their traditions, their jokes or their feelings.

This is why I strongly believe that finding the essence of why we want to learn a language is so important. It doesn't matter if you are a kid, a teenager or an adult, if you learn a language through the things you are personally interested and passionate about, learning will never feel like an obligation and will always feel like a fun game!
