Grammar and conversations skills for beginner and intermediate students.
I teach Spanish and English. I've been teaching English for more than 20 years and Spanish for 8 years. I like to focus my classes on students needs. The most important is to make them feel comfortable and motivated. I use a lot of vocabulary, shown with drawings or materials to show examples. My goal is to make students speak the language in a very natural and easy way.

About Vania
I've always been attracted to the rewarding profession of teaching. I've been teaching for the last 20 years and it's been such a privilege to be a positive part of all my students' stories. As a result, I have built life-long, lasting connections with my students. My professional bio and education qualifications include:

• Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science

• Private and public Spanish Instructor
I teach beginning to advanced-level Spanish to persons of all ages. Books, media, dictionaries, age-appropriate games, and flash cards are the materials used for instruction. Students are assessed with oral and written quizzes.

• A variety of certificates of training and teaching, in the realm of Overseas Language Instruction in English and Spanish, Teaching Orientation
s, and Evaluating.

They will walk into a highly positive, friendly, warm environment with an instructor who is able to recognize immediately their instructional level and needs, and will be able to connect with them.

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 had a great time learning Spanish with Carolina. She was encouraging and made learning easy and fun. I wanted to use my Spanish in real life situations and it really came in handy when I was travelling in Barcelona. I’m still taking lessons from her because there’s always more to learn :) .

I loved having classes with Carolina, I looked forward to them every week! Carolina is very patient and explains things very clearly. I took classes with Carolina when I needed to start using Spanish in my job. Carolina helped me to find a way to express myself in business interactions very specific to my role. I am forever grateful.

Hola! Let's have fun learning a new language. We play games, have conversations, and practice key vocabulary to reach your Spanish goals.

About Mary
Welcome! I am a former teacher with 10+ years for experience. I teach all levels of English, Spanish, and test prep, especially math.

I attended Seton Hall University for Education and Spanish where I was able to travel to Mexico, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Spain, and Costa Rica. After graduation I attended Rutgers for English as a Second Language. I am certified in New Jersey.

In our first lesson I like to see what level students are, ask what their goals are, and begin lessons that target those goals. Personalized lessons are the most effective and motivating. I love to help my students accomplish their goals and enjoy the process!

Mary is a wonderful teacher. She is patient and bright and tailors her lessons to fit the needs and desires of the learner. I enjoy our sessions very much and have learned more Spanish working with her than in all of my past attempts to learn languages combined (from years of courses to Rosetta Stone). In ten hours I feel I have a good foundation for understanding the language and can form sentences and engage in conversations on my own. I look forward to continuing with her and learning even more!

Hi! My name is Kate and I have been teaching Spanish for more than 4 years, both in private schools and online. I have a DELE certificate (Diploma of Spanish as a Foreign Language), as well as a «Competent Language Instructor» certificate that I got in a well known language school in Kiev, where I worked after I completed a course dedicated to Spanish teaching methodology. In addition, I have two years of experience as a translator in different projects and one year in a Spanish company in Kiev.

I'm 28 and I'm from Ukraine so my native languages are Ukrainian and Russian, but I started learning Spanish when I was nine years old, so I have been learning it for almost 20 years. I have studied very intensively for the past 7 years and I'm still looking for new topics from which I can learn. I'm in permanent contact with native speakers from Spain and various Latin American countries so I can easily explain to you the differences between distinct varieties of language.

I have 5 years experience teaching Spanish in a classroom setting, and have tutored both kids and adults. I have both presented at teaching conferences and published in the field of language teaching. I work to make language learning practical, fun, and personal! Will use industry-researched best practices to help push you in the direction that you want to take your abilities. I will be attending NYU in the fall to begin a Master of Arts in Teaching Foreign Language.

About Wyatt
I am an experienced Spanish teacher who just moved to the NYC area to start grad school in the fall. I have taught middle school Spanish in the Boston area for the past 5 years, but have experience in classrooms and tutoring young kids, teenagers and adults. I have both presented work at teaching conferences and published in the field of language teaching.
I graduated from Washington University in St. Louis (WashU) in 2010 with a major in Spanish. I've lived for 3 academic years in Spain, and have also spent significant amounts of time in Mexico, Costa Rica, Chile and Perú.
My preference is to make lessons conversational, practical and personal. I strongly believe that a language, like any skill, is best learned THROUGH DOING IT (as opposed to learning about it in a textbook). That said, I am always happy to cater to your specific inter
ests and needs.
