Mastering fundamentals is extremely important when learning a language. I will tailor the lesson to your needs. We'll begin with mastering the sounds of each letter, then move on to common words, phrases, and simple conversations. Whether it's for travel, leisure, or work, practicing is key. Once you get your footing, we'll expand your vocabulary and understanding of grammar.

About Joy
I am a graduate of UC San Diego (bachelor of arts, sociology) and UCLA (master of public policy). As a child of immigrant parents, I value diversity and love learning languages. I read, write and speak Spanish fluently, and have intermediate command of both Cantonese and Mandarin Chinese in reading, writing, and speech.

Photography has been one of my main areas of focus for over ten years. I am trained in both film and digital formats and specialize in demystifying the DSLR so that you gain a good understanding of manual settings and how to use each to improve your photos.

Caring, compassion, and understanding are essential for learning and I strive to do my best in these areas.

I was having a lot of trouble in English all year and it wasn't until I started working with Elyssa that my writing and reading got better. Thanks to her, I ended up getting a 92 on the regents. She is also one of the the sweetest people I've ever met and I can't wait to work together again next year.

I focus on conjugation, grammar, composition, vocabulary, and oral skills.

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'm Cuban, so Spanish is my native language, and if that's not enough I studied Spanish Linguistics at the University of Havana. Linguists can classify languages according to their history, as well as according to the language's structure and according to how words are formed. With that background, I can teach beginner, intermediate and advanced as well. If you want to learn Spanish as you know your native language I'm your teacher for the job.

About Ivette
I'm a philologist, meaning, I studied the Spanish language deeply. I'm from Cuba and my native language, of course, is Spanish. My minor was in Hispanic Literature.

“Being bilingual, it turns out, makes you smarter,” Yudhijit Bhattacharjee wrote once in a piece for the New York Times Sunday Review. “It can have a profound effect on your brain, improving cognitive skills not related to language and even shielding against dementia in old age.” In an increasingly global world, being bilingual makes you a more competitive force in society for jobs, travel, speaking to clients abroad.
Also, Spanish is considered world's second-most spoken native language, after Mandarin Chinese.

I taught Spanish as a second language since I graduated in 2012. In 2015 I left Cuba and came to the US. In here I've been teaching children from 3 to 5 years
old in a bilingual program. I can teach all different ages and experience levels. I believe that everyone can learn a second or a third language, the only thing that you need is a motivation, any kind of motivation is essential to learn something new.

I look forward to meeting you and help you find that motivation.

With international experience living, working and studying in Spain, I gained vital Spanish language knowledge that cannot be taught in most classrooms. I graduated cum laude with two Bachelor's degrees in Spanish Language and Public Relations from Texas Tech University (Wreck em'!). My Spanish degree involved grammar, history and business studies. I have experience teaching/tutoring spanish and english in a college preparation program as well as internationally. I have also working in the healthcare industry as a bilingual healthcare specialist. My passion is to help students become bilingual in this competitive and diverse society!

About Motola
Hello! My name is Motola and I graduated cum laude with two Bachelors degrees in Spanish Language and Public Relations from Texas Tech University! My Spanish degree involved grammar, history and business studies. During my time at TTU, I lived, worked and studied in Spain gaining international experience in the Spanish language. There, is where I cultivated a deep love and passion for this language.

While living in Granada, Spain, I worked at a bilingual children's school as an assistant teacher. We conducted the class with both Spanish and some English lessons. During my time at TTU I worked with Upward Bound, a program for first generation high school students (those whose parents do not have a college education), as a mentor and Spanish/english tutor. I was one of the Spanish teachers for the Upward Bound summer program and tutored st
udents throughout the year. In this program, I also conducted bilingual presentations to native Spanish speakers and translated documents.

In this diverse and changing society, it is imperative that students learn a different language; and in Texas, it is even more important that students learn Spanish. That being said, my goal for each student is that they would not just be able to pass their Spanish 2 vocabulary quiz or get a 4 on the Spanish AP Test, but that they would become bilingual and have a competitive edge in our diverse society.

I believe that to learn a language, one must be immersed (in some way) in that language. That is why I will use avenues such as songs, books, articles, movies, etc. to help students grasp the depth of the Spanish Language. This also makes something that is seen as difficult into something exciting and fun! When choosing me as your tutor, you will not only get better grades, but will gain a knowledge that is priceless!
