About Jaime
I believe, that would make a great addition to your team, because I have a strong passion for education and learning. I have always being interested in teaching and mentoring others. I teach others with the realization that everyone potentially learns differently, so I do my best to involve different teaching methods and asking the student what works best for them. It is through a personal story that I learned that the teacher can make huge difference in the way the student understand the material. It believe that if you make what your learning relevant to your life, it can resinate easier with the mind. I have a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies with focus in Spanish and Sociology. I would be glad to be a service to you.

About Frank
I am from Peru, which is where I started my career in teaching. For nearly five years I taught Spanish as a Second Language to American young adults who were preparing to serve Spanish-speaking missions in South America.

Additionally, I was a Spanish editor. Through producing and editing countless Spanish magazines, pamphlets, articles, interviews, and ads, I developed great attention to detail and excelled in the correct and elegant use of the Spanish language. I also worked as an Advertising Manager and Marketing Manager for several educational institutions.

Lately, I have worked as a Spanish Instructor for Language Bird in Los Angeles. During that time, I taught students and career professionals from the basic, intermediate and advanced levels of Spanish. Currently, I'm working as a Spanish Instructor at Ross Stores Distribution
Center, and as a Latin American Culture and Spanish Instructor for the U.S. Air Force.

I am an instructor who is professional, flexible, easy-going, patient, friendly, and very interested in my students' progress.

I look forward to meeting you.

About Stefania
I am Italian. I moved to Canada first and the US next in my thirties. I love teaching. I own a retail training and consulting company. I have taught Italian on and off over the years and have always loved doing it. I am very passionate about the topics I teach and have a clear understanding of the complexities of learning and most importantly remembering things that are new to us. Hence, my obsession with repetition and never move to the next lesson until prior ones are fully mastered. I use multiple tricks to make a lesson engaging, different and fun to attend.

I am very organized and have a passion for creating and doing things that give people a new perspective on life. I set plans and goals, and do what it takes to get things done in the most efficient ways possible and I am able to adapt even when things don’t quite work out. As a 2nd Degree Black Belt Instructor, my discipline and ability to handle things most people cannot has been amplified beyond the average individual. I am dedicated and reliable to my cause!

I love Science, Culture, and Spanish as well as Video Editing/Production and also just being able to over see projects from start to finish. I currently tutor and teach Spanish to Veterans. I am in the process of completing my Bachelor's of Science with a Major in Honors Psychology at Wayne State University. I also have 2 minors in Spanish Language and Latino/a and Latin America
n Studies (Formerly known as CBS: Chicano-Boricua Studies).

I love Language and culture and it's why I love to share it with others.
I would love to be apart of something where I could put my skills to use and be a part of creating something amazing or doing things that can help change people’s lives in a positive way.
