About Candace
I'm a classical violinist, a loving single mother, and a independent business owner for life, health and accident insurance through AFLAC from New York. I am a very accomplished musician performing in many venues and events such as the Long Island String Festival, NYC All County Music Festivals, Valley stream District 13 Music Festival, NY All State Concert, NYSMMA Music competitions, and yes even Carnegie Hall with the NY Metropolitan Youth Principle Orchestra 1st Violin. Ive learned that nothing of value in life comes without blood sweat and tears but it is worth it.

The things I love most in life are my son and providing for our family. On week days, you'll usually find me prospecting potential clients to help with their benefits for employees in any type of weather, for my independent business through AFLAC. On the weekends I like
to take my son with my dogs (sometimes) to the park, museums, and church or teach him the various wonders of life.

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 ! :)

Saludos, Javier

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!

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!

When it comes to learning a new language it is also imperative to include a cultural perspective and have knowledge of the different Spanish speaking countries. I was born and raised in Puerto Rico until the age of 21. I went to school in Puerto Rico from kindergarten all the way up to the twelve grade. I started college in Puerto Rico but I decided to move to the United States.

I have been teaching Spanish since 1973, when I was 20 years old.
I did it for 10 years long (and still do) and I used so many methods that I finally came up with my own method to teach students of any age, any background and any motivation to learn a system that efficient, that will have you speak Spanish, and have a normal conversation from lesson one! I focus on verbs and practical conversation but no nonsense stories most books have. Books are only optional! And I am available also in between lessons and for as long as you need me in your lifetime with no retainer fees! The vocabulary is Latin American real life as you see it in the news! And best of all, I speak Spanish since I was 7 years old, when I used to live in Uruguay! I speak and teach 7 languages, soI know what is is to learn a foreign language and I know how to make it easier for you!

About Robert
My name is Robert Mirza. I have a Spanish Teaching Degree from The Netherlands and I started teaching since 1973. I also have an Associate Degree in Applied Arts in Advertising Design from the Art Institute of Houston. I combine art with any language to teach children up to 2nd grade to make it fun. For any other student I use my innovative method without books, some sites in the net and we immediately start speaking the language the student wants to learn. But I still have the best books on demand if needed. I customize my lessons to the needs of my students and I am available 24/7 for any questions to make it as easy as possible for my students, no matter their age. I make learning fun and interesting for all my students because I love what I am doing!

I have been taking lessons from Robert for about 6 months and it has been a great experience. Robert takes a very individualized approach and works incredibly hard both during and between lessons to make the lessons relevant to where I am both in terms of the level of content and making the topics covered interesting. It is also obvious that Robert is - at the end of it all - a really good person who is enjoyable to spend time with while learning about both language and culture.

Spanish in Rochester

The best way to learn any language is to start speaking it. When it comes to progressing in your Spanish lessons in Rochester, nothing beats listening to people speaking Spanish and having a chance to talk with them. If you are a bit shy when speaking Spanish, know that those who speak it as a first language are always happy to hear others making the attempt to learn and speak the language. This may help you overcome your hesitation.

Dinner and Discussion

Supplementing your Spanish lessons in Rochester is incredibly easy, as there are many Mexican restaurants with staff members who speak the language. Additionally, many of the menus at these restaurants are written in Spanish, so you can get a chance to read the language, too.

Once you know what you want to eat, try ordering in Spanish and getting some feedback on how you did. This is the perfect opportunity to see how much your lessons have helped you to learn Spanish, as well as to find out what aspects of the language you need to improve on.

  • La Casa Restaurant is a trendy place in Rochester with great Mexican food. If you get a chance, try out some of your Spanish as you enjoy a simple, yet satisfying meal.
  • Juan & Maria’s Empanada Stop is a cheap alternative when you are on the go. If you make time to stop by regularly, you can work a little extra Spanish conversation into your routine. This will help you to learn the language more quickly, as opposed to speaking it at the occasional dining experience.
  • Tapas 177 offers great Mediterranean and Spanish cuisine. If you want a chance to learn Spanish, you can enjoy authentic Spanish food while you talk to some of the staff.
Annual Puerto Rican Festival

For a thoroughly enjoyable and memorable experience of the culture and language, make the Puerto Rican Festival in Rochester part of your annual plans. This is a great way to get more acquainted with the language and culture, and you may even meet some new friends, too!
