Esther is a great teacher and I highly recommend her, especially to those who want to improve their fluency and to those (like me) who are just too afraid to start speaking Spanish. Lessons with her are always fun and interesting, and she always knows how to explain everything in a simple and understandable way!

I have over 5 years of experience tutoring/teaching Spanish. I specialize in beginner/intermediate/advanced grammar and speaking skills. All ages welcome. Lessons will be customized to whatever your individual goals/needs may be! I was part of a Spanish immersion program and speak the language fluently. Have traveled to many Spanish speaking countries and am a Spanish teacher in New York City. Looking forward to working with you!

About Kat
I am a professional singer, songwriter, actor, and teacher. I graduated from Coastal Carolina University with a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Musical Theatre (with a minor in Spanish)! Originally from North Carolina, I moved to New York City in order to pursue my dream of being an actress! Upon my arrival in New York, I quickly found that I also have an incredible passion for songwriting and teaching. Currently, I am pursuing a career in music and working as a teacher.

If you choose to study voice with me, you can expect to improve your technique weekly using a variety of vocal warm ups and songs. Because every person's voice is just as unique as they are, we will work through your individual strengths and opportunities for growth as well as work towards building up your repertoire - all while helping you gain more and more confidence in you
r vocal abilities!

If you are interested in studying acting with me, you can expect to read lots of plays/musicals, as well as work through a slew of monologues! We can work on material that I find for you or we can work through whatever you need to prepare for your next audition! I can help you find compelling objectives and beats and help bring your character to life!

In my Spanish lessons, you can expect to work through grammar, speaking, reading, and writing. I learned Spanish through an immersive academic program (K-12) and then I minored in Spanish in college so I not only have an understanding of the language from an academic standpoint but I also have been speaking Spanish for nearly the entirety of my life! I have worked with beginner Spanish speakers to native Spanish speakers helping with grammar and writing skills. We will work together to build up your confidence in speaking and understanding Spanish and before you know it, we'll be able to have our lessons fully in Spanish!

I am looking forward to meeting you and working with you soon!!

About Guadalupe
Looking forward to a great, fun language journey with you. Online language lessons work perfectly regardless of your location in the world.

If you are serious about learning Spanish and would like to acquire fluency and independence applied to your own goals, we can complete full programs, fill in grammar gaps providing language certainty and accuracy, prepare for exam
s, clarify doubts, among other skills through applied linguistics: an interdisciplinary field which identifies, investigates, and offers solutions to language-related real-life problems. A few references on my current work and experience below:

Guadalupe is a wonderful instructor. She has a natural flair for language and her personal experience of the mental processes involved in learning a language makes her a gifted and understanding teacher. She combines a knowledge of linguistic structures with a sympathetic approach and has a unique ability to correct while at the same time encouraging and giving confidence. I recommend her highly.

- Learn Spanish with a native speaker
- I have learned two other languages, each one in a different way which helped me understand different approaches to teach/learn a new language.
- I’m a singer too, so I will make sure your pronunciation and clarity are in a good level, as well as help develop your listening skills.

About Pedro
I am an Opera Singer, currently based in the NYC area. I finished my undergrad in vocal performance at Universidad Central in Bogotá, Colombia and Master’s degree in music performance at the University of Denver.

The learning process is very different from one person to the other and this applies to languages, indeed. However, no matter what your pace is and what your goals are in a subject, my goal will always be making sure that you are learning something new every time, and of course, that you reach your goals in the process. Your process is personal and my job is to take the best from you.

Respect singing, I believe every person has a unique instrument, and no matter how easier or harder it could be for some people, anyone can develop his/her own instrument to the fullest!

I look forward to meet you and reach your singing and langu
age goals together!

I was born in Argentina, therefore I am a native Spanish speaker (and continued to speak it throughout my upbringing). I also was homeschooled from 1st - 12th grade through an online Spanish system (which helped with learning all about Spanish grammar and the history of my country) while also attending public school here in the USA.
I am an experienced tutor focused on beginner, intermediate, and advanced level Spanish. Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student.

About Carla
Hi!

My name is Carla, I am currently in a Masters program for Mental Health Counseling and thought it would be a great idea to tutor on the side as I love teaching people my favorite subjects -- Spanish and French!

I was born in Argentina, therefore I am a native Spanish speaker (and continued to speak it throughout my upbringing). I also was homeschooled from 1st - 12th grade through an online Spanish system (which helped with learning all about Spanish grammar and the history of my country) while also attending public school here in the USA.

As per my French interest, I studied French Translation (as well as Psychology) in college and also lived in Paris for 6 months to fully immerse myself in the language and culture. I feel very connected to this language (I started learning it when I was 12), and wish to live in France after my g
raduate studies.
