I've been teaching Spanish for five years and my students have gone on to speaking and writing. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to understand the language and as time goes on you'll be able to speak and write it; your grades will go up.

I've been teaching Spanish for 24 years and my students have improved their grades , passed their Spanish tests, decided to travel to Spanish-speaking countries, become better qualified for jobs, enriched their relationships with friends and family and more! Within a few lessons you will feel empowered to communicate: speaking and understanding. Reading and writing skills, grammar, pronunciation, vocabulary will also be addressed as needed.I teach conversational Spanish, SAT subject test in Spanish, CLEP Spanish, AP Spanish language.Within a few lessons you will feel I have the age-appropriate resources, games and creative ideas to instill your love for learning Spanish and getting to know the Spanish culture.

About Carina
I love teaching all ages and levels because I enjoy seeing students learn and achieve personal, social or professional goals. Everybody can learn if I respect the student's needs, pace and learning style, and if I tap into his/ her interests and strengths. A comprehensive approach that includes speaking, reading, writing and listening is necessary, however I focus primarily on communication . I provide knowledge, fun, creativity and flexibility to guarantee a successful pleasant experience for all students.
I am a native from Argentina. I moved to the US in 1996, therefore I can relate to the feelings involved in learning a foreign language. I live a bilingual life raising my daughter who is 14 and my son who is 6 years old . I travel to Argentina once or twice a year. I teach conversational Spanish, SAT subject test in Spanish,
CLEP Spanish, AP Spanish language.

My son and I have both had the pleasure of taking Spanish tutoring with Carina, and it was an excellent experience. She is patient, explains things very well and is very passionate about the language and culture.

Doing classes via Skype was simple and easy. I highly recommend Carina's services.

Hola! Let's have fun learning a new language. We play games, have conversations, and practice key vocabulary to reach your Spanish goals.

About Mary
Welcome! I am a former teacher with 10+ years for experience. I teach all levels of English, Spanish, and test prep, especially math.

I attended Seton Hall University for Education and Spanish where I was able to travel to Mexico, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Spain, and Costa Rica. After graduation I attended Rutgers for English as a Second Language. I am certified in New Jersey.

In our first lesson I like to see what level students are, ask what their goals are, and begin lessons that target those goals. Personalized lessons are the most effective and motivating. I love to help my students accomplish their goals and enjoy the process!

Mary is a wonderful teacher. She is patient and bright and tailors her lessons to fit the needs and desires of the learner. I enjoy our sessions very much and have learned more Spanish working with her than in all of my past attempts to learn languages combined (from years of courses to Rosetta Stone). In ten hours I feel I have a good foundation for understanding the language and can form sentences and engage in conversations on my own. I look forward to continuing with her and learning even more!

Hi!

I am part Dominican and Spanish is my mother tongue. Spanish as well as hispanic culture is therefore very dear to me which reflects on the content of my lessons. I customize my classes to each student and their needs and interests. I will make sure that each class is spent towards reaching your set objectives and goals. I always welcome feedback and suggestions.

About Gabriela
Hi!

To tell you a bit more about myself, my mother is Dominican/American and my father is Lebanese, but I was born and raised in Paris, France, which explains that I speak French, English, Italian and Spanish fluently. From a young age, I have had a deep appreciation and passion for languages, as well as other cultures. I moved to NYC to attend Columbia University, where I studied International Relations. I started tutoring on the side while in college and absoluty love working with children. Since graduating, I work in tv/film production where the hours are always changing, which would allow me to continue tutoring. I am a social, personable and responsible person, who cares about the needs and interests of whoever I work with. I customize my classes from student to student, and am always open to feedback and suggestions.

I focus on conversation, dynamic and funny references, and context examples for the person to understand the usage of different times and tenses. I recommend the exposure to the language and culture, and encourage the practice at home and field trips to Spanish neighborhoods as well.

New York, NY

I've been studying Spanish since my first words. Having taken Spanish throughout my adolescent life, I then completed a minor at Texas Christian University. I did this in part by Studying Abroad in Spain last summer, where I learned many of the grammar and colloquialism differences between Latin Spanish and Castilian Spanish.

I'm friendly, patient, and always want to help you speak and sound your best. Let me know what you want to work on and we'll find the right lessons and pace for you!

About Carroll
My first words were in Spanish and I've been studying and speaking since then! I've traveled to Spain multiple times where I served as a translator for my family, and later studied in a Spanish-Only school for six weeks.

I'm patient and want to get to know your Spanish level and your specific needs. I am always happy to have free consultation sessions prior to tutoring to learn more about what you want and need out of the tutoring experience.

What makes my lesson unique is that I make sure you learn exactly what you need to. In other words. I’m all about practicality. I teach you how to convers, which is the most important. I hear my lessons towards the individual and practicality. The most important things about learning a language is making sure you can express yourself fully, so that you can get your point across. Fluency comes when one starts to build on what they already know in order express themselves even more. This is why I’m the best!

About Erik
Hello, I’m a Spanish qualified flight attendant so I definitely know how to communicate with other on both a professional and personal level. I am a native speaker of Spanish as it is my first language. If you want to learn how to really communicate and express yourself in Spanish, look no further I can help you!! I’m just a text or phone call away.

I have 5 years experience teaching Spanish in a classroom setting, and have tutored both kids and adults. I have both presented at teaching conferences and published in the field of language teaching. I work to make language learning practical, fun, and personal! Will use industry-researched best practices to help push you in the direction that you want to take your abilities. I will be attending NYU in the fall to begin a Master of Arts in Teaching Foreign Language.

About Wyatt
I am an experienced Spanish teacher who just moved to the NYC area to start grad school in the fall. I have taught middle school Spanish in the Boston area for the past 5 years, but have experience in classrooms and tutoring young kids, teenagers and adults. I have both presented work at teaching conferences and published in the field of language teaching.
I graduated from Washington University in St. Louis (WashU) in 2010 with a major in Spanish. I've lived for 3 academic years in Spain, and have also spent significant amounts of time in Mexico, Costa Rica, Chile and Perú.
My preference is to make lessons conversational, practical and personal. I strongly believe that a language, like any skill, is best learned THROUGH DOING IT (as opposed to learning about it in a textbook). That said, I am always happy to cater to your specific inter
ests and needs.
