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.

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 am a second year college student at Fordham University. I'm majoring in Spanish Language and Literature with a minor in Arabic. I've been actively studying Spanish for the past five years both in and outside of school.

Spanish is the first foreign language I began studying, so I have discovered what methods I think are the most and least efficient for language acquisition. I firmly believe that the most effective way to learn another language is to speak from day one. Therefore, in our lessons, I will emphasis speaking practice and will also share my tips and advice for improving your language skills in easy and effective ways.

Although I am not a native speaker, I believe that this actually gives me an advantage in tutoring spanish. As a learner of the language myself, i have had to learn and understand difficult grammar concepts such as the subjunctive and past tense for myself which gives me the opportunity to teach Spanish from a students perspective and explain things ...

I have been teaching professionally for 10 years. Most of them abroad, in Ireland and Turkey and always at the Instituto Cervantes and in several universities, last year in Barcelona, at Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona. I do love to teach Spanish to groups but specially private lessons as they give the option to build an specific curriculum for that student, work on the needs and what he really wants to learn, in what way. My lessons are very dynamic and also fun, we work all the aspects and also the culture from Spain if you're interested. I have a long experience teaching students from all over the world, with different ages and levels.

About Alfonso

I'm very flexible about the time and where to give them, always ready to new challenges and goals from my students. I'm online most of the time so you're more than welcome to ask me any questions or doubts, as well as corrections when you're at home.

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.
