I love words, the concepts behind grammar, the art of communication. As a journalist, I have enjoyed writing about dance and film, as well as writing proposals, and film festival programs, radio scripts, magazine articles, and interviews.

About Deirdre

Languages have always fascinated me. Traveling a lot as a child, I studied French, German, and Twi when I had a semester studying dance & drumming in Ghana. The other two constants have been piano and dance. Classical Spanish music is what originally hooked me on the piano and later the world of fla

Peter
Jesse is exactly what you would want in a tutor. He is extremely knowledgeable and has excellent intuition on how to present information in an understandable way. His lesson plans are extremely flexible to how you are learning the information. Highly recommended if you are looking for a Spanish language tutor.
Theo
I would recommend Jesse for any tutoring need without reservation. In our household, Jesse has helped amplify the Spanish learning for a middle/hs student, helped an older student with the application process for graduate work and worked with someone on writing. He’s phenomenal at all of it for the following reasons: his patience, intelligence and good nature are exceptional; he can work with all temperaments; he will meet your student where they are. Most important: he is systematic and provides real executive functioning support for each task. He is an unusually talented tutor and human being.
Charlie
Highly recommend Jesse as a Spanish tutor! Have been working with Jesse for almost 9 months (2 hrs + / weekly) and my Spanish fluency has rapidly increased over this period. Jesse's lesson plans are highly curated for my specific goals, learning style and interests. It's been a pleasure working with Jesse and appreciate his willingness to accommodate with my busy work / travel schedule.

General Note: I majored in Spanish undergrad, and have explored a number of different way to continue learning in NYC - group classes and language programs have their value but can not complete with in-person, 1v1 instruction.

I grew up in Sweden, speaking Swedish at home, but going to French school. At age four, I was immersed in a French environment, and had to sink or swim. I swam!

"Mrs. Ghada E. is a well oriented and enthusiastic teacher. She gives clear verbal and written instructions to her students during class. Mrs. Ghada is very organized and knowledgeable in her subject area. She is an enthusiastic, very patient and humorous sometimes. Mrs. Ghada is a self motivated and a fast learner when it comes to learning new teaching strategies. She encourages me to go the extra step in learning by sending me her written feed back notes on my submitted assignments. I liked that she always response quickly to my email questions. Mrs. Elfarra can adjusts her teaching techniques to help students with different learning styles succeed in her class by varying her assignments and assessment methods like short written or spelling quiz...etc.. She is kind and understanding teacher and capable of handling difficult situations. Mrs. Ghada is a very helpful and kind teacher, I am very please to take her class."

English Language Conversations for Beginners

Although words may be limited and simple, it is still possible to enjoy conversations in English even if you are a beginner. I think that it’s essential to be able to express basic needs and to clearly express your identity. Let’s get started with the very basics and then we’ll build from there. Greetings and Introductions: When meeting new people you need to be able to greet them. If you are in an informal situation you might say, “Hey, I’m (name), nice to meet you.” In order …
