About Sam H.

Close

This is my 7th year studying Spanish, and I couldn't be happier. I teach from middle school to college level Spanish. I have knowledge with in depth grammar constructions and vocabulary. With time and practice, I can guide you to being successfully able to read, write, listen, and speak in Spanish. My lessons are custom to each students experience level, and are taught at just the right speed. Learning a second language is much more enjoyable when there is not stress involved. It's never too late to start! ¡Hasta pronto!

About Sam
Hi! My name is Sam! This is my third year with TakeLessons and I couldn't be happier with the students that have come my way. If you're reading this, then you've taken the first step in finding a tutor that is right for you!

I am currently working on my Bachelor's degree at Worcester State University. I will have a double major in Spanish and Communication.

I love Spanish, and I believe that you can really get the hang of it after a little time and practice. With grammar review, practice, and vocabulary memorization, it becomes really easy to learn this language. I am more than happy to be here to help you learn this exciting language! Proper pacing is crucial to learning a new language. Therefore, I make each lesson customized for every student.

Every lesson, you will receive downloadable links with all of the content covered
in the lesson. You will also get access to an exclusive Spanish discussion board which all of my students are welcome to participate in.

I have recently began teaching group classes in Spanish as well. Group classes are great for those that prefer larger classrooms and interacting with peers. I am teaching beginning through intermediate level group classes.

Aside from Spanish, I also teach Adobe Photoshop. There are endless possibilities with Photoshop, and I am here to let you discover some of them. No experience? Tired of watching youtube tutorials with no feedback? Maybe you need a tutor to guide you through the process!

We will start off with layers and then go on from there, moving into the more intricate tools such as the pen tool, layer masks, and blending modes.

Dear guys,

I create and teach uniquely tailored classes in Spanish to those just starting to dive into the language.

My dedication, love and experience in Romance languages, music and as a flamenco dancer, led me to study Spanish independently.

As with each of my languages, I'm experienced in and love the beauty and awesomeness of Spanish, and its structure and nuances.

I have many years of experience as a private teacher of Spanish, sharing cultures of the world through the language.

About Jane (Zhenya)
I was born in Saint Petersburg, Russia and have always had an immense love for languages and cultures of the world. I found that diving into a new language and culture is one of the most incredible, joyful, compassionate and meaningful paths to discovering the world. All the while, rediscovering one’s own unique interests and curiosities. It’s always surprising and rewarding in ways we can’t foresee.

As a longtime, professional independent instructor, I never imagined where my languages and creative work would lead me and the wonderful folks I encountered along the way.

It’s been a journey of incredible variety.

I had the amazing opportunity to create and teach the first Russian, French and Italian classes to children in public elementary schools all around Oxnard. I was invited to teach French and Italian classes i
n the Ventura College Community Education, Russian immersion program for the U.S. Government and English to a team of international entrepreneurs and their families.

This work and my students inspired a joyful dedication to creating live video classes. I discovered that it’s a special, interactive and awesome platform into the world and I love seeing it grow.

I look forward to working with you and supporting you on your language journey.

Till then,

Zhenya

Few years ago, when I was attending LACC and taking grammar classes I thought that my knowledge of Verb Tenses was good enough . I used to write huge essays included a lot of pages. Moreover, I was getting straight As for all the essays that inspired me. Maybe my grammar was really correct, but I’m not sure that I expressed meaning correctly because I didn’t feel and recognize many nuances of Verb Tenses. Since , I started to take your classes I have understood how Verb Tenses are diverse , how flexible meaning they have in order to show our emotions.
Some people say it”s not necessary to use all V.T. Simple Past , Present and Future it”s enough for communication with each other, but I’m not agree with them. Using all V.T. we have made English more rich , natural and beautiful for that reason our life become jucier.
I never had been so fascinated by studying English grammar before I met you 
I have appreciated your teaching full love . You’re always ready to share your skills with the people who want to improve their knowledge. I’m happy that I found you!
THANK YOU MY DEAR Zhenya !!!!!!!! 

About Ivelis P.

Close

Want to talk or write to someone from Spain or Latin America and you only could say "Hola"? Want to have more chances, professional, to be hired for being bilingual (fluent in Spanish)? Or just learn a new language? This is the place. You could learn as fast as you keep enthusiasm, which is pretty easy with a teacher who actually her native language is Spanish. Be brave and begin to learn Spanish. I would help you since the beginning to beyond.

About Ivelis
I am from Puerto Rico. I began to play flute since I have 11 years old until now. I graduated recently from Conservatorio de Musica de Puerto Rico with a Bachelors of Music, specifically flute, with great accomplished expectations of my professors.

Flute students can expect to improve week to week in their flute technique. I am giving flute classes since I was 13 years old! I would be with the student step by step until he/she improve. My way to teach has helped many students to go to levels that even they don't believed to reach, sometimes break with bad habits or fears when they play included. Also the feedback of my students has been satisfactory. Most of them tell me that they like how I connect everything I teach, like music theory, scales and flute studies in a practical way. I have had students for 1 or 2 years studying with me.


For Spanish students, I already born and raised in Puerto Rico, so my native language is Spanish. Even though, I decided to learn English and I discovered that there are people who wants to learn Spanish as well as I learned English for a variety of reasons: job positions, travel, meet people, etc. I am thankful for learn English, so why I will not help you to learn Spanish as well?

In general, every student is unique and deserve an unique class, so my classes are planned according to the level of the student, his/her goals and/or interest. So my first class include to know why you want to learn to play flute or to speak Spanish or why you want to improve it.

My personal passion is to play flute and help others to learn something that I could explain well and that it is new for them. I look forward to meeting you and help you until you become professional in the topic!

I have been teaching for 11 years, having taught students of all ages. Speaking is just as important as reading & writing, so there are always lots of dialogues & conversations. I also incorporate everyday experiences to make the language more accessible. I love languages & cultures, and try to make learning a new language an amazing experience!

About tina
I am currently a college professor. I received my Bachelors from Penn State University and my Masters from the University of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

Having lived in Spain, I learned first-hand the importance of being able to communicate. I emphasize oral communication equally with reading & writing skills.

Even though I teach collegians, I have also taught young children & older adults. I adapt my teaching methods to best suit whatever age group I am working with.

I love languages and cultures, and am always trying to learn new things. As a student of dance for many years, I am a fan of Spanish & Hispanic music, which I also incorporate into some of my lessons.

I have also done interpretation and translation, so I can provide some instruction in those areas as well.

My goal is not only to teach Spanish, but to also create curio
sity and enthusiasm for the language, culture & history of such a large & diverse population,

Spanish with Profesora F. was awesome. I took Spanish back in high school and honestly I could not stand it. But she really made the class fun and inviting.
I probably learned the most from her than from any other professor. She made the class!!!

Creative Movement and the Spanish Language: This multidisciplinary program was developed to enable participants to learn, interpret, and understand the Spanish language through dance. The goal of these classes is for the students to be able to build a basic Spanish vocabulary for use in travel and daily life. This program fosters learning conversational skills in a new way. My aim is that each participant will develop a love for the Spanish culture and an eagerness to learn more about this beautiful language, which is the second-most spoken language in the United States, while learning latin dance styles such as salsa, merengue, bachata, and more.

About Anna

She has traveled for her work to Bangalore, Pune, Lucknow, and Bombay in India. Additionally, she has taught for The National Ballet of Zimba
bwe in Africa, in England, and in the greater Boston Area. She is currently working in the Mid-Hudson Valley.

I'm a native Spanish speaker, first generation American who grew up having to learn English as my second language. So I understand the difficulty of learning a second language. My lessons are focused on practicality and things you can use daily.

About Chilo
I'm a first generation American. Growing up in my household we only spoke Spanish, it wasn't until I started going to kindergarten where I was forced to learn English. I understand the struggles of learning a second language and my style of teaching is a practical one, one where you will use what you learn on a daily basis.

I have a 16-month-old son who I am teaching Spanish along with English. I have mentored students in Spanish for the past 10 years and translated for school districts and companies during that time.

When I visit my family in Texas and Mexico we still speak Spanish as the primary language, no Spanglish allowed at my parents house. Some of my interests outside of my Mexican culture including Martial Arts, Computers and Photography.
