I have studied and traveled in Mexico and Spain. My hometown and Bay Area history are full of Spanish speakers, a great way to put my language skills to use. My students have improved their grades and found joy in learning a new language. I hope my practically-minded method will appeal to you. I have written and spoken extensively in Spanish. Poetry, research papers, music . . . Thanks for your interest, and please do not hesitate to contact me for more information. I hope to be able to meet your educational needs. Thank you.

About Lars

I began to teach guitar at 16 years of age. I have taught seven- to 60-year-old students in a wide variety of styles. I studied jazz guitar primarily with Randy Vincent, one of the San Francisco Bay Area's greatest guitar players, and continue to broaden my horizons under the guidance of Matthew Grasso. Aside from teaching, I compose, perform, and research in Music and Language Arts.

Lars is an awesome instructor. Very knowledgeable and also very articulate with his instructions. I highly recommend him. I am an absolute beginner and yet he was able to share so much in the very first lesson itself! He also makes learning fun.

Private Spanish Teacher

I have been teaching Spanish for over 10 years in universities (SDSU and Georgetown), private schools and through private lessons, and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of Spanish culture, study abroad in Latin America, and more! It is important for me to get to know my students and their goals so that I can adapt my lessons to their pace and needs. I love working with students of all experience levels and ...espero contar con su presencia!
I am currently just accepting students for long commitment with the lessons.

About Ana

Hi, there! My name is Ana and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching Spanish since 2007 and have loved helping my students to reach their goals whether that was getting ready for a test, learning their ancestors language or getting fluent for their next job destination. I went to San Diego State University and earned a Master's program in Spanish linguistics. I also pursued a second Masters in Spain (my home country) in Teaching Spanish as a Second Language. I'm a motivated and dynamic teacher who has learnt that all students can learn a second language if they are challenged and encouraged. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

i have been taking lessons with Ana for approximately six months so far and plan to be taking lessons with her for at least the next year if not years. Ana is great.
i like her approach to teaching and her personality is making a very frustrating task easier, not easy, but easier. it is obvious she is well educated and experienced in her craft. I always wanted to learn a second language and I was searching the web for lessons, found Takelessons and feel very lucky to have choosen Ana. For anyone who wants to take lessons online i would highly recommend Ana. She is a professional.

I have been working with Ana for six months and could not speak more highly of her ability as a teacher. She is extremely organized so not a single minute of the hour session goes wasted. She is a very patient teacher and explains grammar in a way that's easy to understand and remember. She also selects interesting content, including stories and news articles, so homework never felt like a chore! It was my first experience with taking a class via Skype so I was somewhat skeptical of the format initially, but it works extremely well and I feel like I got so much out of my weekly sessions. I highly recommend Ana to anyone who wants to improve their Spanish level quickly!

I want to become a spanish tutor because I want to help others,transmit my knowledge and improve students communication skills. I also do think tutoring improves creativity and independence. Motivates self-paced and self-directed learning and fosters self esteem and self confidence. As a native speaker i will be an example of what life is like in Sout America and evaluate from a native perspective.

About Maria Carolina

Hola estudiantes! I am a native Spanish speaker born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I attended the University of Buenos Aires and received my bachelor’s degree in Human Resources from that institution. I have been teaching spanish in the US for more than 6 years !! I worked as a Human Resources Generalist and in charge of Recruitment processes in an very important and prestigious US Government entity. I have been speaking English throughout my entire life and have fluent command in reading, writing, listening and speaking the English language. Furthermore, my past position in a US Government entity in Buenos Aires and my experience here in the United States have developed my knowledge and understanding of American culture and communication.
Both the Spanish language and Latin culture are becoming more present in the United State

s. I truly love my culture and my language, so the opportunity to teach them to other people who are from a different background excites me. Since I am from Argentina, I will offer a unique perspective to the students on what life is like in South America. I will serve as an example for what it is like to listen to a native speaker and I will be able to evaluate student’s speech from the viewpoint of a native speaker.
I have a great appreciation for American culture and have several years of experience working with American teenagers and adults while working at the US Government entity in Buenos Aires.
I managed the Internship Program which gave students an opportunity to gain work experience and improved their Spanish skills like comprehension, reasoning, understanding , writing and speaking. They really enjoyed having their latin american experience.
Since my husband is American , I have been teaching him for almost six years and he is making progress. He is very happy and very excited in learning new words, expressions and idiomas and he is working very hard to become fluent in Spanish
I love to be a spanish tutor because I like to help others, transmit my knowledge and improve students communication skills. I also do think tutoring improves creativity and independence. Tutoring provides greater congruence between teacher and learner, improves academic performance and personal growth. Motivates self-paced and self-directed learning and fosters self esteem and self confidence.
I am very a passionate and hard working person and i believe that being a tutor in Spanish is a very rewarding and interesting experience for me and for my students. I am very patient, a good listener and I want to generate a relaxing teaching and learning environment and also create and keep a good and professional relationship with students.
I can teach spanish for beginners. intermediate and advanced students.
I can help with a simple homework, preparation for an exam and also teach and improve writing, reading, listening and speaking skills. I am willing to teach to either young people or adults.
I am very excited and happy to be a tutor and i am looking forward to hearing and meeting you and starting to teach and learn about the amazing Spanish language and latinamerican culture.
Should you have any concern about my education and work experience, I can provide supporting documents ( certification of services, bachelors degree certificate, green card resumes, evaluations, etc).

Muchas gracias y espero que se comuniquen conmigo !

About Vertel

It took the love of another language to help me appreciate my own, and later, to appreciate the beauty of learning. As an educator, I care about more than just a passing grade; my goal is to see you succeed beyond your wildest expectations!

I earned a Master's degree in Spanish from the University of North Texas, where I gained substantial experience as a graduate teaching fellow and teaching assistant. I've also worked at the Wichita Falls ISD as a Substitute Teacher and an English as a Second Language (ESL) Tutor, and at Vernon College as the Tutoring Center Coordinator. I am currently a Spanish teacher at Yvonne A. Ewell Townview Magnet Center in Dallas.

beautiful language-learning can be!

Private Spanish Teacher

As a fervent learner of Spanish since 2007, I have developed a sincere heart & successful process for teaching this language. I am super passionate seeing my students have that "aha" moment! I love engaging with my students with personalized lessons, that I adapt from a specific curriculum (Puntos de Partido) and then tweak it to meet your particular needs. All ages that I've taught have benefited from my animated and motivating approach. Come learn & speak Spanish with me!

About Joy

Want to learn to speak Spanish? Sign ASL? I would love to be a part of your journey! I am a patient, and friendly person, who is passionate about language learning!

SPANISH: I use my own personal learning experience mixed with a communicative approach to create a teaching method for my Spanish students. My Spanish teaching method focuses on the development of these four skills: speaking, listening, reading, and then writing. Do you have specific goals? Great! Or are you learning just to be able to speak any and all that you can? Awesome! I teach beginner and intermediate and am a conversation partner and tutor for students more advanced! Also be prepared to be challenged to get involved with the Latin American culture around you!

ASL: My lessons will give you a strong foundation in Sign, and then a few training wheels until you fee

l confident in what you know, and can converse about various real-life topics. My teaching method utilizes much of Deaf professor Dr. Bill Vicars' approach--with signed conversation in each lesson beginning with high frequency concepts. Each lesson is full of new signs, grammar, conversation, Deaf culture tidbits, and more.

About me:
I fell in love with language when in 2010 I lived, studied, and worked abroad in Colombia, South America. There I studied Spanish, worked with Deaf students, and taught Spanish speakers English. It was such an enriching experience that upon returning to the USA, I decided to fully surround myself with culturally diverse individuals and continue my learning journey.

One of the major differences between learning a language in a classroom and having a personal instructor is that one-on-one help you will receive --- specific to your level, learning style, and language goals. I will help you stop feeling nervous, renew your motivation, and get you communicating in a new language in no time!!

First lesson was great! Joy is very knowledgeable and tailored the class to the pace needed for me. I look forward to continuing to learn from her.
August 24, 2019
Joy accurately assessed our daughter’s abilities and catered each lesson to engage, as well as challenge her. Our daughter enjoyed her online sessions, where she not only gained conversation experience, but also expanded her vocabulary and conjugational skills. She will be starting this school year with greater confidence in her Spanish class. Thank you so much for all your help, Joy, and we look forward to more lessons with you!

I’ve taught many people how to speak Spanish. I find that the easiest way to learn is by simply taking words one by one and teaching it to the student as a slang almost and having them speak normal English but I’ll have them replace words out with Spanish words. This process makes it easy for you to learn Spanish quickly and soon quickly forming sentence. We will go over double meanings and pronunciation, grammar, etc.

About Rosandy

Hi my name is Rosandy. I am 20 years old and I am a social media marketer. I’ve been modeling since I was 11 years old so I’ve been fortunate enough to learn about makeup pretty much my entire life.

About Jonah

I am a professional writer and teacher of English and Spanish. I graduated from University of California, Davis, with a degree in Political Science and Economics.

I just finished a year and a half service in the PeaceCorps teaching both English and Spanish in the Dominican Republic. I taught advanced grammar lessons to native Spanish speakers. I, also, taught basic english (and a bit of advanced english) to all ages.

My service taught me how to care for a student's needs and the patience to show how each sentence needs to be grammatically structured. I love teaching both languages through conversation as it is the most natural way of learning how to speak a different language.

I have a passion for teaching languages and I hope you will highly consider me as a spanish/english instructor!

Soy escritor profesional y profesor de ingles y

espanol. cumple mi carrerra en la universidad de california, Davis en Las ciencias politicas y la economia.

acabe de cumplir mi servicio de un ano y medio con el cuerpo de paz ensenando ingles y espanol en la republica dominicana. ensene la gramatica avanzada y lecciones a habladores nativos de espanol. Tambien, ensene ingles basico a estudiantes de todos anos.

Jonah really taught me a lot. He was very understanding of my learning disabilities (I have dyslexia.) He's knowledgeable about Spanish, and has a proven track record with Spanish grammar and vocabulary. With Jonah's help I was able to pass my high school Spanish class with flying colors.
