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.

Whether you want it for travel in Latin America, or because you live in an area with lots of native Spanish-speakers, I can help you build your vocabulary and fundamental knowledge of grammatical concepts!
I use a variety of methods, though my teaching is heavily conversation based. I believe conversation needs the foundation for all languages; everything else will fall into place once you learn how to actually express yourself aloud. I also teach using literature/stories/poetry written in the language of focus.
If this is your first time learning a foreign language, Spanish will be your gateway! (And I will be your guide).

About Malka
Hello Potential Students!
I can't wait to start working with you! I know from experience that a good student/teacher relationship is the key for success, so I approach my teaching with positivity, flexibility, and the firm belief that everyone has innate intelligence waiting to be uncovered and harnessed.

I offer my students humor, support and my own expertise in a variety of subjects relating to the field including audition advice, tips on controlling performing nerves, help with diction, text interpretation, and much more! I believe the student/teacher relationship should be based on trust and mutual respect, and that is what I offer.

North Bergen, NJ

I have a BA in Scenic Arts from the National School of scenic Arts in Caracas Venezuela.
The dynamic of my lessons are art based.

About Oscar
As a Director, my proposal always takes a reflection on the text as starting point: an analytical commitment to the author's language as it comes expressed in its structure and stylistic features. In the sense I illustrate it, it means to exert an interpretative freedom within the boundaries of what Roland Barthes called the semantic plural of a text.

Given a special interest in the experimentation through language I have restrained the scope of my reflection to the so-called theater of the absurd. In my work on that genre I have set as an aesthetic goal, to bring what was thought as a mainly dialogistic and situational language, to a higher level of semiotic interplay. In that regard, my aim is to integrate entire scenic materials (including lighting, set, and more abstract element such as rhythm) as intrusive and/or commentate resour
ces to the sources given within the text itself.

I have never been worried about plots that give an illusion that one "understands" just because the plot imposes an order that is similar to life; where the word "dramatic development" is implicit, creating a unique sensation for the spectators. As Luciano Berio said about his splendid music, "the experience of not being completely sure of what one listens to, should be considered inseparable to the work." That's to say, not all have to be comprehended by the spectator. And as a dramatist friend says, "sometimes, not even the author, who writes, understands." It is about leaving marks, milestones, footsteps that bring a hidden sense, leaving a perceptible and therefore, terrible, ineffable image. A teacher I had at the university said in class, "Art is not about questions and answers, Art is

En Colombia cantamos, ven, cante conmigo!

In Colombia we sing when we talk, not really but thats what we say. My favorite language is my first and I'd love to teach a natural and accessible tongue.

About Johan
To me, there are few things that are more rewarding then seeing someone take on a new idea and make it their own.
I am primarily a musician, working in the city but find that teaching others both the language of music and my native tongue, Spanish, are a fascinating and positive way to give back to my community.
Creativity, honesty, and patience are the pillars I work off of; and I know full well that each person requires something different of me, so I will always work towards tailoring the learning process to you and your needs.

I have been teaching Spanish for well over 20 years. My classes are very dynamic, creative and full of enthusiasm, with lots of fun material for adults, and children as well. Although I target the four skills for learning a language properly, I focused my classes on speaking; my greatest satisfaction is to see my students speak fluently in their second language. You'll have lots of fun, will learn lots of things, including grammar without noticing it , and will have a ton of fun!!! HAPPY LEARNING!!!

About Rosalba Rocio
My passion is to teach my native language as a second language. When it is well taught and learned, it sounds wonderful.

About Sheila
Hello and welcome! I would like to start of by saying I was a former Pastry Chef working in various cuisines; French, Italian and American are my top favorite. I was often pulled out of my work filed to help out with translating for those who were unable to communicate. This is why I would like to being in helping spread the Spanish language to those who want to liberally travel or come up to anybody and strike up a most engaging lovely conversation. Spanish is not complicated but in fact fun; it can take a little bit of getting used to but once you get the hang of it; there's no stopping you!
