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,

Private Spanish Teacher

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!!

I have been teaching professionally for 10 years. Most of them abroad, in Ireland and Turkey and always at the Instituto Cervantes and in several universities, last year in Barcelona, at Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona. I do love to teach Spanish to groups but specially private lessons as they give me the option to build an specific curriculum for that student, work on the needs and what he really wants to learn. My lessons are very dynamic and also fun, we work all the aspects and also the culture from Spain if you're interested. I have a long experience teaching students from all over the world, with different ages and levels.

I'm very flexible about the time and where to give them, always ready to new challenges and goals from my students. I'm online most of the time so you're more than welcome to ask me any questions or doubts, as well as corrections when you're at home.

I LOVE teaching Spanish! I never knew how much I liked it until I started working at the modern language department at BMCC. I started working there as a part time Spanish tutor back in 2010. I enjoyed the experience. So I continued. I moved to Spain then, so my Spanish got a way better hehe. I’m a native speaker and I’m familiar with every Spanish slangs and expressions of many Spanish speaking countries. All my students always got an A in class. I developed a system that learned with time and it’s so efficient! I’m proud to say that! Pilar for you! :)

Spanish Reviews

Gabi
"Gloria has been such a wonderful teacher and is really helping me understand Spanish grammar better. I'm so glad that I decided to do private lessons with
her in order to better understand the Spanish language. Her methods of teaching and getting students to practice the language have helped me retain information much better than I would have if I tried to teach myself."

Chris
"Adan is so patient and love how he teaches."
Grace
"She was so happy to help. Very frustrating as I fell behind in Spanish over 2 quarters but Jackie is getting me back on track with compassion."
lexie
"Best language teacher I have ever had!"
Will
"My wife is from Puerto Rico and her family doesn't speak English so every time we went there I was not able to communicate with them, she tried to teach m
e and our son but honestly that's not her thing...she found teacher Nick to teach us and he's been more than great! We have been learning so much that although my son is still taking Spanish with him, I am fluent now and started taking Portuguese a couple weeks ago as I travel to Brazil for business often and I'm really excited for all the new things I've learned already, obrigado profe!!!!"
...
Sadie
"I take Advanced Spanish lessons from Julissa and have thoroughly enjoyed the sessions. She has tailored the sessions quite well to accommodate my learning
needs and abilities and is very gracious with my sometimes tumultuous schedule changes. Julissa has wonderful command of her class sessions, but also makes the student feel completely relaxed and eager to learn. She offers corrections gently and points out the many ways one can express the same thought so that I have options that I can remember. Her background in psychology prompts her to really understand me as a student and adapt her teaching in ways that match my learning level and motivation (and that varies with the session, but she is also always ready to shift gears!). I look forward to my time with her and would recommend her to anyone who wants to improve their Spanish with an expert teacher who is enthusiastic to help you learn."
