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 have been teaching myself Spanish for sometime, but Ana was able to uncover the areas where I needed help in communicating. She was very encouraging and open to reciprocal format in her teaching style. I was very happy with my first lesson and looking forward to my next class!!!!!

About Jennifer G.

Close

Spanish lessons with me are unique because I am a native English speaker who has had a true love for the language since I was young. I was forced to take Spanish my freshman year of high school, and discovered that I loved it. I studied it for fun outside of class and practiced whenever I could. I ended up going on to earn several advanced Spanish credits during college. I understand that language is always evolving and changing; thus, I do my best to keep up with the current trends in the Spanish language and its regional variations.

About Jennifer
I have been dancing in some form or fashion since the age of 3. I did ballet and tap recitals in preschool, took recreational gymnastics and cheerleading classes in elementary school, and did allstar dance and allstar cheerleading in middle school and high school. When I went away to college, I continued to take classes in many dance styles when I had time. I have never lost my love for dancing. My favorite styles are modern and ballet. I currently own a studio in the DFW metroplex and am excited to expand my teaching to online students!

I have been working with Jaqueline for about 8 months now, and can say that she is a very good teacher. She will focus on your strengths and use them to help you learn. She remains flexible to schedule needs and keeps good notes on your progress and what you have learned so far as well as where you are going. I need to learn Portuguese for my work and so she was very focused on keeping my lessons moving from the very basics to ultimately technical terms and meeting conversations. I don't believe I would be productive without her help.

If you're looking for top-tier, enjoyable, results-driven tutoring, send me a message. I've been helping students ace their next Spanish exam, paper, project, or standardized test, for over 10 years. But more importantly, I build lasting relationships with my students – meeting on a regular basis; covering all aspects of skill-building, test prep, and organization; and acting as a consistent presence in the student's life. I currently tutor high school students in New York at Horace Mann, Riverdale, Trinity, Collegiate, and Dwight Englewood, as well as adults and younger students.

About Jesse
I'm a professional Spanish and English tutor with over 10 years of experience teaching at the high school, middle school, and college levels.

I hold a masters degree from Harvard University, a Bachelors degree in Spanish language and Political Science, and a teaching certificate from the Fulbright Scholarship program.

I currently tutor high school students in New York at Horace Mann, Riverdale, Trinity, Collegiate, The United Nations School, and Dwight Englewood.

I help students of every age ace their next Spanish or English exam, paper, or standardized test.

But just as important, I build lasting relationships with my students based on mutual trust and respect. My students come away from tutoring sessions energized, with a sense of confidence and motivation. I believe that meetings with a tutor should be enjoyable, and they
should inspire students to work smart and work hard.

After studying at the University of Havana, in Cuba, I wrote peer-reviewed research, which was published in the journal "Cuba in Transition." A year later, I was awarded a Fulbright grant to teach and conduct research in Montevideo, Uruguay. There, I worked with the U.S. Embassy to create a series of new language courses in public schools.

I speak and write fluently in Spanish. But as a native English speaker, I've learned the Spanish language from the ground up, just like my students.

For both English and Spanish I am an expert in test prep, essay composition, IB/AP, and SAT II.

If you're looking for top-tier, enjoyable, results-driven tutoring, send me a message.

A knowledgeable and patient educator, Jesse has found a teaching style that perfectly balances challenge and inspiration. As a doctoral candidate in the sciences, it is important for me to assert my knowledge of a topic while capturing the attention of the reader. Jesse has taught me to transform bare facts and ideas into structured, sophisticated passages. He has played an active role in building my self-confidence and has helped me find an authentic writing voice to more clearly and elegantly express my thoughts. I am grateful to have his guidance and am eager to vouch for his excellence as a tutor.

I am so lucky that I found Jesse! He is thoughtful, thorough, patient, and kind, and his lessons always felt like they were tailored specifically to me and my needs. Even his teaching materials were personalized to include my name and phrases that only I would need to use (i.e. I'm an actress and piano teacher, and I've been living and working in NYC for over ten years). Highly recommended!

- I am a certified Spanish teacher from Spain.
- I have been teaching Spanish for 4 years to different levels: from absolute beginners to people who know Spanish but want to get rid of small mistakes.
- I have experience with all ages, from kids at middle school to adults.
- I have taught in high schools, private schools and college.

I believe that learning a language requires a link between the student and the teacher. Everyone needs to feel comfortable to go through the awkward process of making mistakes in order to make something perfect. I myself have learnt several languages and know many tricks that helped succeed at it.
I am happy to talk with the student and establish the goals and how to work towards them.

About José
Hello,

My name is José, I am from Spain and I am really excited to be your next Spanish teacher. I have been teaching for a long time and I am currently very involved in the design of teaching materials too. I will adapt and design personalized classes according to your needs.

I have been teaching for 4 years and I have ample experience with different age range. Whether you have to prepare for you high school exams or to pass those college classes I am here to help you.

I am a certified teacher from Spain. I majored in English in college and after that I got a M.A. in Education and Spanish teaching for foreigners.

Since then, I have worked for different institutions such as high schools in Spain, Middlebury programs, IES study abroad programs, and I am currently working as a language instructor at Pomona College.

I am passionate ab
out languages and I always try to keep up with the current language learning methodologies in order to offer the best to my students. For this reason, I not only became fluent in English but I learnt (and keep learning) German, French and Italian.

I believe that developing a good atmosphere and helping the students get over the fears of making mistakes is a key factor in language learning, and I will make sure to bring that to our lessons.

Best Spanish teacher ever!!!
Cuando empezé a tener clases con José mi nivel de español como segunda lengua era intermedio, pero quería mejorar mi vocabulario académico para expresarme de manera más formal en el entorno universitario y José me ayudó a conseguirlo!
Trabajamos sobre todo con artículos y ensayos que él iba seleccionando para cada clase sobre temas específicos y su método se basaba sobre todo en la práctica y en la conversación, así que la clase no resultaba nunca aburrida!
Además, la experiencia con él fue interesante porque añadía curiosidades y anédoctas que me ayudaron a comprender muchos aspectos de la cultura española.

Highly recommended!

José is a fantastic Spanish language teacher. I have had him as an instructor in a university setting for two years. He is patient, insightful, and creative in his teaching methods, always keeping students engaged. He has taught me a lot about Spanish popular culture, both thematically and linguistically. He has also provided an appropriate balance of correction and encouragement: he helps me not feel embarrassed about my speaking, while simultaneously correcting my errors as I go. Five stars.

I would highly recommend Jose. He was very patient with me as I decided to start studying Spanish again at Uni in the US. He actually helped me correct my accent and my grammar very quickly. I appreciated the fact that he was a very open person and that he was also willing to adapt the level of English and Spanish for me as Spanish is a 3rd language for me (I'm French). Really nice and reliable person, I will take more lessons with him.

¡Hola!

If you're reading this, you're probably interested in learning Spanish, am I right? Let me tell you something about myself and how I could help you with that!

I am an English and Spanish teacher and translator. I have been teaching Spanish as a second language for a few years now and I love having the opportunity of helping people communicate in my native language, Spanish.

Helping with grammar, pronunciation and giving useful tips for a good communication experience are my favorite areas.

I love when students participate and are not afraid of making mistakes. After all, that’s how you learn a language!

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

¡Saludos!

About Dani
Learn Spanish from a native speaker! I teach the "neutral" Spanish, no specific accent. It is the Spanish spoken in Spain. Once we determine what your goals and needs are, we will work to create the perfect class for you.

I also give personalized feedback after each class to help you with your practice outside of our lessons together.

Let's get started!

My passion and enthusiasm for educating others is very evident from the first tutoring experience with me. I listen to each student's individual needs and learning style to develop interesting, fun, and interactive methods to encourage growth, understanding, and enjoyment of the subject. I, too, am a second language learner- so I get you and your needs! We'll have fun while I teach you the tips and tricks that made me a great Spanish professional.

I graduated in 2013 from Le Moyne College in Syracuse, NY with a degree in Public Relations and Spanish. After graduation, I embarked on a two and a half year journey through Costa Rica where I was a tour guide for a Spanish language school and Ecuador where I was a volunteer teacher for two years. As a teacher in Ecuador, I worked with impoverished children and adults on English language development, as well as Spanish language development for native Kichwa speakers, among other subjects. After that, I worked in higher ed and continued to ...

About Caitlin
Whether you're trying to pass a class, converse and practice, or learn how to pick someone up en español, I'm your lady. I'm a Spanish language tutor, interpreter, and future Master in Nursing as a bilingual nurse, and can't wait to work with you!

I started studying Spanish late in life (at 18), but grew immensely in passion, technical ability, and fluidity when I moved to Costa Rica at 21. I graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Spanish in 2013 and have lived in Latin America for a total of 3 and a half years since.

I was not naturally talented in the Spanish language when I started my journey. I got C's and B's in classes- messed up tests, struggled with conversation. The key to my success was making the language come alive for me! So- I took my lessons from the classroom and brought them into cooking classes, restaurants, bars, ani
mal shelters, volunteer opportunities, and other activities that speak to my heart. My goal with you will be to do the same. Let's make the language come alive for you or stoke that fire even more so you can achieve your language goals. I'm with you in this and can't wait to work with you!
