Vania is an excellent Spanish instructor

I've taken many Spanish lessons that have ranged from various software programs to personal tutors. Vania is great. She knows how to relate with each person in order to convey concepts. She's the best I have worked with.

She's also very accommodating, since I tend to change my schedule around a lot. She is always flexible to accommodate. Vania is simply great.

I was having a lot of trouble in English all year and it wasn't until I started working with Elyssa that my writing and reading got better. Thanks to her, I ended up getting a 92 on the regents. She is also one of the the sweetest people I've ever met and I can't wait to work together again next year.

Eric is a great teacher of Spanish. He is very professional and methodological in his classes. He uses a lot of different study materials, including online apps that are geared to the topic he is covering. He can switch gears and help in preparing our high school son for his school tests. Eric is very accommodating if it's necessary to move a lesson. Highly recommended!

I have used Eric for about 5 years now, and he took me from speaking basic Spanish to exceeding more courses definition of Advanced quickly. His teaching background and patience make him an ideal teacher, and he is able to find material that pushes you to the next level well. Now my South American wife has to be polite about me when she speaks to her family about me!

I would highly recommend Eric as a tutor for any level of Spanish.

Whether you want it for travel in Latin America, or because you live in an area with lots of native Spanish-speakers, I can help you build your vocabulary and fundamental knowledge of grammatical concepts!
I use a variety of methods, though my teaching is heavily conversation based. I believe conversation needs the foundation for all languages; everything else will fall into place once you learn how to actually express yourself aloud. I also teach using literature/stories/poetry written in the language of focus.
If this is your first time learning a foreign language, Spanish will be your gateway! (And I will be your guide).

About Malka
Hello Potential Students!
I can't wait to start working with you! I know from experience that a good student/teacher relationship is the key for success, so I approach my teaching with positivity, flexibility, and the firm belief that everyone has innate intelligence waiting to be uncovered and harnessed.

I offer my students humor, support and my own expertise in a variety of subjects relating to the field including audition advice, tips on controlling performing nerves, help with diction, text interpretation, and much more! I believe the student/teacher relationship should be based on trust and mutual respect, and that is what I offer.

College Point, NY

Native speaker (originally from Cuba). I have a Bachelor in Art History and Spanish Literature from University of Havana, Cuba. Awarded excellence in grammar and creative writing. I have experience teaching Spanish to students of very young ages to adults. All ages welcome. Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student. Learning a language should be a joyful experience and one that will be a positive change in your life. Practicing conversation is always the best way to learn a language, specially having the opportunity to talk with a native Spanish speaker.

About Yali
I received a Master of Design in Fashion, Body and Garment at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) and a Bachelor in Art History at the University of Havana, Cuba. I’m a multidisciplinary designer that blurs the line between fashion and visual arts. I launched in 2009 a project titled “Normal Is Good” centered in the development of clothing collections with presentations in Havana, Cuba; Paris, France; Liverpool, England and Miami, Chicago, NY, US.

Once I moved to New York I participated in an internship at Victor de Souza Company and I was quickly hired for the position of Production Manager and began assisting Mr. De Souza in executing and coordinating fashion shows.

As an artist and designer I feel more inclined towards education than working in the fashion industry. I feel great joy teaching and this would be a wonderf
ul opportunity for me to share my knowledge. The lessons are customized to your needs. I will only cover the subject that you are interested in, and are relevant to achieving your goals. Even if your goals are not that clear I can help you to discover what is it that you want.

Sometimes I have been approached by people who, although they do not want to pursue a career in fashion or art, want advice on how customize their image. I can help you to express your individuality and embrace your freedom.

As a designer I have also collaborated producing the costume designs for plays like: "Post-Plástica", Museo del Barrio, NY (2012) and "Schwanze-Beast", Vermont Performance Lab, Vermont (2015).

In 2015 I released the film-documentary, "Normal Is Good (I like America and America likes me)" at Gene Siskel Film Center, Chicago. "All the things she says" is my most recent solo exhibition at Galería de la Biblioteca Pública Rubén Martínez Villena, Havana, Cuba (2017). I was selected as part of 2017 NYFA Immigrant Artist Mentoring Program for Performing and Literary Arts, New York Foundations for the Arts, NY, US.

My knowledge of art and design and my international perspective, are elements that enrich my approach to education.

Yali is a WONDERFUL Spanish teacher. She teaches my 13-year-old daughter in such an engaging way that my daughter insists on *not* taking Spanish at school but instead learning solely with Yali (and also when she's experiencing full immersion in a Spanish-speaking country). The fact that Yali is from Cuba and a magical fashionista is a super fun added bonus.

Hola! If you are here, it is because you share the same passion of learning a new language just like me or Spanish can really come in handy for you to know... Or both! Let me help you with your goal and teach you in an interactive, fun way, where we'll focus on your conversational skills as well as grammar. I believe that in order to tackle the difficulties of learning a foreign language, there is no better solution than to talk to a native speaker!

About Mariana
I'm currently serving as an Americorps Vista volunteer at the New York Immigration Coalition to fight poverty among minority groups in the city. I just graduated as a magna cum laude from CUNY Hunter College with a Bachelor's of Arts in Anthropology and Spanish.

I have always loved teaching my native tongue to people so they can be part of a rich culture and enjoy the profound and vast literature that comes with it. I believe in the joy of communicating with others and be able to see the world in different colors and perspectives.

I began teaching Spanish to friends at my college and that's how my journey with teaching the language as a freelancer began. My approach focuses on the conversational aspect with fun and educational icebreakers as well as grammar and structure.

I love playing the ukulele, painting in watercolor, reading sh
ort novels, and finding new yummy spots in NYC during the weekends.
