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 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.

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.

Kate is very thorough and very knowledgeable with the language. I felt very comfortable with her as I had some questions and she explained in a way that I wouldn't feel embarrassed once she completed her explanation. She made me feel very relaxed and I look forward to the rest of my sessions with her.

Hola!
My name is Ra. I am a native Spanish speaker. My classes are geared toward making you comfortable speaking Spanish. Although we will do some reading and writing we will focus a lot on conversation which is my specialty and in my opinion the most fun!

Any level is welcomed!

About Ra
Hola!

My name is Ra. I am a dancer, poet, and educator. I specialize in teaching conversational Spanish, Latin Dance, and Spoken Word Poetry. I am a native Spanish speaker. Originally from Puerto Rico, I grew up between PR and New York City. I graduated from The New School University and lived abroad several years teaching language in a Bilingual Schools. I began my dance studies back home in Puerto Rico with traditional Boricua roots music like Bomba y Plena. I now work for several dance companies, perform spoken word poetry, and teach dance/poetry/spanish to children and adults. As a Teaching Artist I aim to help my students become more comfortable whether it's with learning Spanish or learning to dance Salsa, Merengue, Bachata, or Flamenco.

I believe learning new things opens up a whole new world to us. With me you will get to
a point where you feel comfortable speaking Spanish or Dancing, or writing poetry which is the ultimate goal right?! :-)

Ra was very professional, welcoming and well knowledgeable to say the least. For a beginner such as myself with no prior experience, not once did I feel left out or that I couldn't catch up to her and it was all due to Ra being willing to not only revisit the steps but to do it all over again if necessary. Ra does not only engage and interacts with you very well, but she makes certain that you are also having fun all while learning. In conclusion, I highly recommend Ra if you are looking to get your Latin groove on!

Ra is such an amazing teacher . She was very patient and kind with me making me feel at ease right away . Ra was understanding about me speaking some Spanish but being hesitant of having a Spanish conversation due to me not being fluent . She was great at taking the pressure off and actually getting you to enjoy the language and speaking it .very uplifting and I never felt discouraged if I messed up . I definitely recommend her

I have been teaching my nieces and some people that do not know how to write or read in Spanish. That have made me want to halp other who are willing to learn another language with a passion. I have a specific teaching curriculum and by saying that,I meant to say that; I make my teaching fun, make activities and play. I believe teaching and learning should be a joyful experience and one that will be a positive change in your life. I teach younger child to adult. I want my students to reach their goal by defending themselves in Spanish in less than 6 months and have an aspirations in them while having a wonderful time learning Spanish. Who ever know 2 languages or more, is value as two.

About Alvaro
I was born and raised in central America until 2008. I come from mayan families which I till follow their cultures and speaks their languages (2, Quiche and Kakchiquel).
I graduated from University on May 2018. I've been teaching some people that do not know how to read or write and by so far, I have helped them succeed their goal. Now they know how to read and write, step by step. However, my goal is to teach you the right way how to learn Spanish as well. Will have activities, will have games, so while you having fun, you'll be learning a new language. I don't want to be talking all the time because I don't want my students to fall asleep while I teach. You'll get it soon what I mean.

Masculine & Feminine Spanish Nouns | Test Yourself!
In English, every noun has a neutral gender. This makes it easy to learn, so you really only need to learn the new word and the learning stops there. In Spanish, on the other hand, every single noun is either masculine or feminine. This means that every time you learn a new Spanish vocabulary word, you need to learn its accompanying gender as well. This may appear confusing for beginners, but bear with me! Here are the general rules for determining masculine and feminine Spanish nouns:
