I am a seasoned instructor and the best I can offer you is to tailor my teaching to your needs. Whether you need to practice only one skill (reading, writing, speaking, listening, translating) or all of them! Whether you want to do homework in advance, afterwards, or no homework at all! Whether you want me to test you every now and then or not... It's up to you!
This is my 8th year studying Spanish, and I couldn't be happier. I teach from middle school to college level Spanish. I have knowledge with in depth grammar constructions and vocabulary. With time and practice, I can guide you to being successfully able to read, write, listen, and speak in Spanish. I understand the struggles of learning a new language, as Spanish is not my native language myself! With all of my personal learning experiences with learning the language and eventually majoring in it while in college, I know the specific obstacles you as a native English speaker face. My lessons are custom to each students experience level, and are taught at just the right speed. Learning a second language is much more enjoyable when there is not stress involved. It's never too late to start! ¡Hasta pronto!
I bring a passion to teaching Spanish that stems from being a teacher for over 30 years! I want to help students learn in a fun way by conversations that spark joy. I can help you with your homework, or we can talk about your favorite sports, art or movie. I believe that the best way to learn is when you can connect with the material and incorporate it into your everyday life!
Acquire a second language the same way you acquire your native language. * Learn and practice Spanish with a tutor from Colombia, South America. * Receive personally tailored Spanish lessons in a one-on-one setting. * Online lessons * Lessons include live practice in different environments and day-by-day situations. * Improve your Spanish for traveling. * Socialize in Spanish. Learn about Hispanic culture. * Learn Spanish applied to your job and work field. * Learn professional and/or informal Spanish speaking. * I guarantee you will be reading fluently in Spanish in two months. * SECOND LANGUAGE CURRICULUM FOR HOMESCHOOLING. * AP Spanish Language and Culture Exam preparation. * CLEP® Spanish Language Examination preparation. I like to work one-on-one with my students creating a team and program that will lead them to achieve their goals. Since each student is different, I like to create and select the material for each student's needs. Sometimes I suggest some books, but I try to keep my students from spending too much money.
I am a fluent Spanish tutor. I excel and have made a living full time for the past 10 years as a private tutor, due to my excitement for the job and for the client: you! I absolutely love teaching Spanish and figuring out what works best for you, since every client is completely different. It can be to pass a class, or to get fluent. I call to discuss before the first class so every minute in class is focused on building fluency and working towards your goals (whether fluency or to get an A). I always make sure to customize the class for you. Whether you need to be fluent or you need to pass a specific test, I work extremely hard to ensure all goals are met. I make high school Spanish seem very easy with my way of explaining. I am very professional, punctual, creative and smiling always.
