Are you struggling to learn Spanish? My students quickly raise their grades and test scores, feel confident speaking Spanish and most importantly begin to speak in full sentences from their very first lesson with me! I help students break down the language into its essential elements, so learning becomes an enjoyable breeze!
I don't rely on memorization, rather we focus on understanding how the grammar, especially the verbs, work in Spanish. You will be amazed at the results you begin to achieve from your very first lesson! You will gain confidence in your ability to speak in the classroom and beyond!

Instructor is very energetic and enthusiastic. Conversation is interesting, and she stops to make necessary corrections to my 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.

I have a Master's Degree of Education, K-12 certification, and 8 years of experience teaching Spanish in schools and tutoring adults and children. The key to learning to communicate in a new language is to hear and use the language in context. I teach vocabulary using stories that create with my students, and we recycle that vocabulary in conversations, role plays and new stories we create together. By acquiring language naturally in this way, students are best able to learn and retain vocabulary and grammatical structures.
I tailor my lessons to my students' goals and interests. However, I have a general system and self-created curriculum that I successfully apply to most students. When I work with beginners, we focus on the 16 highest frequency verbs and most useful prepositions and expressions in the language, so that my students are able to express themselves on a variety of topics in just a few lessons. I incorporate authentic resources (resources from the Spanish-speaking ...

Ellen is a wonderful instructor with an intuitive sense of how to make progress speaking Spanish. She is also a lovely person and I recommend her highly.
Nancy
I am having so much fun learning Spanish with Ellen! She is very encouraging and patient. I didn't know any Spanish before, just some French. I am surprised by how much we can actually talk about. I like that she gives me scripts of our conversations to read for homework along with recordings of herself reading them. I listen to these often between lessons and find that it is really helpful.

Hello! I'm Efraín and teaching Spanish is one of my biggest passions in life. I can teach Spanish for everyday use to students at beginners’ and intermediate levels. I develop each lesson together with the students based on any previous exposure to the language they may already have as well their goals. I provide in-depth explanations on grammar while exposing them to useful everyday vocabulary and structures that actually allow them to effectively communicate with native speakers of Spanish in the most common situations. I also encourage students to use tools and methods outside the lessons that can help them speed up their progress and make them commit to a consistent and exciting learning experience.

About Efraín

I'm from Venezuela and besides being a Spanish tutor I'm also a former journalist who loves traveling. I've spent long periods of time in Spain, Ireland and The United States, and have also visited The Netherlands, France, Germany, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Slovakia, Lithuania, Russia, China and Hon

Additionally, he is professional and kind.

Karen
James is an amazing teacher! My son has taken piano lessons from him for several years. James not only taught lessons and theory, he helped my son prepare “Prelude in C Major” by Bach for a school talent show. They also worked on Erik Satie’s “Gymnopedie”. One year, James helped him prepare a song to sing at a talent show and even came to the show and accompanied him on piano. My son has written songs that James has helped him refine. When my son showed up with a ukulele, James was able to teach him how to play it as well. We love James!
