Whether brushing up for a trip, or needing some extra help for a class, I can fit your needs! Vocabulary, verb conjugations and actual Spanish conversation are staples of my lessons!
I have been playing violin since 1st grade, and speaking Spanish since kindergarten!
I love kids and love sharing music and Spanish with others! I graduated from Indiana University in 2013! I minored in Spanish and Music!

My daughter enjoyed Laurel very much. Laurel was extremely encouraging and gave her major ego boosts. She gave her the right amount of homework and a writing exercise :) my daughter asked for her again! Laurel is extremely warm and nurturing. Thank you Laurel!
Hola, cómo estás? I am a certified native teacher. I was born in Madrid, Spain (Europe), and I live in California since 2014. I love teaching, and have all my life. I know how to teach you Spanish in the best way, with funny and effective classes, with patience, and with speaking slowly and clearly. You will learn the best proper pronunciation, our customs and our expressions. You will be able to speak with expressions, accent, emphasys and more different options of the language that only can be taught by natives teachers. We will learn by enjoying and practicing, through one to one conversation, exercises, repetitions and homework. Should be great as well to do lessons with 2 students . It is cheaper and works really really good.
Nos vemos ! :)

You will be able to speak with great accent, emphasys, positions of the mouth ... and more options of the language that it is advasible to be taught by natives teachers.
We will learn by enjoying and practicing, through one to one conversation, exerc
ises, repetitions, movies, books, songs ... By practicing with all these forms, you will feel success in a few classes.
Should be great as well to take lessons with 2 students or session groups. Works really good and it´s cheaper. The lessons are more fun because we can interact, so the student learn faster and better.

Javier is a great teacher, he takes his time with you to make sure you know the work. He always gives homework and is also very nice, and working with him is very comfortable! He makes sure you’re pronouncing the words correctly, and also how to use words in each different sentence. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who wants to learn Spanish!

Want to learn a new language? How about learning Spanish ? It doesn't matter if you know anything about it. I can teach you at any level and you will become an excellent speaker and writer. I'm from Venezuela and Spanish is my mother language. I have 5 years of experience teaching.
Hello!! I'm Maria Fernanda
I am a business administrator and I currently live in Madrid Spain where I am doing a Master in Business Analytics and Strategic Data.
In my spare time I love teaching English(basic and intermediate level) and Spanish(all levels). My teaching method is always depending on the student interest. Generally I try to do it the most fun, interesting and entertaining possible. I have a special rule: no other language allow in class(just Spanish or English depending on what language I'm teaching). I believe that the most efficient way to start learning a new language is to think, listen and speak just in that language. Of course I could be flexible if the student doesn't speak that new language at all. In my hometown (Venezuela) I had experience teaching basic English in an elementary school and teaching priv
et lessons for kids and teenagers as well.
Let me know if you are interested in taking classes with me. Don't lose the opportunity to learn Spanish with a native speaker!
¡¡Hola!! Soy María Fernanda, soy administradora de empresas y actualmente vivo en Madrid, España en donde me encuentro cursando un Master en Business Analytics and Strategic Data. En mi tiempo libre me encanta enseñar inglés (nivel básico e intermedio) y español (todos los niveles). Mi método de enseñanza depende siempre del interés del estudiante. Generalmente trato de hacerlo de la manera más divertida, interesante y entretenida posible. Tengo una regla especial: ningún otro idioma se permite en clase (sólo español o inglés dependiendo del idioma que estoy enseñando). Creo que la manera más eficiente de comenzar a aprender un nuevo idioma es pensar, escuchar y hablar solo en ese idioma. Por supuesto, podría ser flexible si el alumno no habla ese idioma nuevo en absoluto. En mi país natal (Venezuela) tuve experiencia enseñando inglés básico en una escuela primaria y también dando clases particulares a niños y adolescentes.
Avísame si estás interesado en tomar clases conmigo. ¡No pierdas la oportunidad de aprender inglés y comunicarte en cualquier lugar del mundo!

Just message me and I will be happy to help you !
I'm Victor C., a Spanish Tutor and a Python programmer. I have been tutoring for over 10 years and have had great success with students of all ages, college students and adult professionals, from all over the world.
In Python I worked with students from the basics to advanced projects including Data Science tools like Pandas, then Web Scraping projects, to Machine Learning projects using Neural Networks, and even creating an app using Java that uses a machine learning model using Python.
For my Spanish students I've helped them learn the language quickly by incorporating real life scenarios into my lessons. In order to perfect their pronunciation my students interact with native Spanish speaking people that do not know any English to test their learned skills.
I look forward to working with you to reaching all of your academic
and professional goals. Just send me a message, I'll be happy to help you.
Spanish lessons with me are an interdisciplinary, fun and immersive experience in which the student will learn the language through dialogues exploring everyday situations, games, movies/tv series and music.
I'm a professional actor with 25 years of experience as a performer, director, producer and teacher. A native Spanish speaker who also speak French and Portuguese. I've learned these languages by using the tools I previously mentioned. Not only will you get the right diction, grammar rules and enunciation but specifically how to apply in your personal and/or professional life. ¡Vamos!
I’m a film, television, theater and radio actor and producer with a history of 25 years of uninterrupted work in Puerto Rico, the United States, Spain and Colombia. I began working professionally as a teenager and continued on to the Drama Department of the University of Puerto Rico, graduating with honors. I studied classical theater, physical theater and dance, and I’m fluent in Spanish, English, Portuguese and French. I lived in New York City for 8 years, working with The Public Theater and Circle in the Square. Welcomed by the Latino theater circuit of the city, I received several recognitions by HOLA Awards, ACE and ATI. I also hold a certificate in Arts Administration from NYU’s School of Continuing Studies.
My commitment to the Puerto Rican film industry has led me to work in more than thirty films in the island. Some include: An
imal, alongside Oscar-nominated actor Terrence Howard; Back in the Day, as acting coach for actor/rapper Ja Rule; Sol de Medianoche; El chata; Angélica; and Fistful of Dirt, the first Puerto Rican film invited to the Telluride Film Festival.
I’ve had the opportunity to play important roles of historical figures, such as composer Rafael Hernández and the legendary baseball player Roberto Clemente, a role I successfully reprised in the short film 3,000. Other theater credits include: Godspell, Hamlet, Medea and Infinito enquanto dure.
One of my most important roles was my interpretation of Pedro Knight (Celia Cruz’ husband) in the hit Off-Broadway play Celia: The Life and Music of Celia Cruz; which ran for over a year and traveled to cities such as Miami and Tenerife in the Canary Islands. I reprised Pedro Knight, from his early years this time, in the TV series Celia, produced by Fox Telecolombia and Telemundo, released in 2015. Celia has enjoyed great international success, and can currently be streamed on Netflix.
Likewise, one of my most-awarded performances is in La esclava blanca, the top-rated telenovela for Caracol TV, Colombia (2016). La esclava blanca has been sold to 28 countries, including Poland, the United States, South Africa, Panama and Puerto Rico. Netflix has also acquired streaming rights.
My latest project is the biographical television series based on the life of reggaeton singer Nicky Jam, El Ganador, produced by Telemundo and Netflix.
My acting workshops has been sold out everytime and students have started to work steadily after classes.
I'm from Venezuela and besides being a Spanish tutor I'm also a former journalist who loves traveling. I've spent long periods of time in Spain, Ireland and The United States, and have also visited The Netherlands, France, Germany, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Slovakia, Lithuania, Russia, China and Hong Kong. For the last 5 years I've been living in Medellin, Colombia, where thanks to a vibrant expat community I have met great people from all over the world while helping them learn Spanish.
I hold certifications by International House and the University of Cambridge (TKT) to teach Spanish and English, respectively. I have gained experience in teaching English in Dublin, Ireland, where I spent 8 months as a student, and then in Texas, USA, where I volunteered to teach Spanish and English to children and adults for about 5 months. I'm always
curious about my students' culture and lifestyle.
I share documents and other materials with each student, and during the first session I assess the student's level in terms of pronunciation, vocabulary and structure. Depending on the results and what the student needs, I will vary the amount of material on speaking, listening, reading and writing skills, as well as the topics to be covered. I will also try to focus mostly on words, sentence patterns, and phrases that are frequently used from a situational point of view.
Efrain is very patient and clear in his teaching. My experience with him was the best I've ever had with a tutor. He is an extremely knowledgeable and skilled teacher. Additionally, he is professional and kind. I felt he really cared about helping me be successful, and he provided me very useful resources and approaches to learning that I was able to use during my personal study time.

Listening to Spanish music is a fantastic way to improve your language skills! Here, Jamaica Plain, MA tutor Christopher S. shares 5 suggestions for famous new Spanish musicians to check out...
There is a world of great Spanish music out there, and so much of it is by artist or bands we, Americans, have never even heard of. Much of this is due to geographic location, because it is quite likely that unless you're in Spain, you're not going to know the best and most recent artist becomin …
