I first heard Spanish from my dad who's Colombian, so my lessons focus on communication via dynamic task-based activities! First you discover grammar functions & the meaning of vocab through simple comprehension activities. Then we practice these new items through conversation questions or communication activities that simulate real-life tasks like ordering food, asking for directions, or describing a person. This creates a fun atmosphere for learning and gives students ample opportunities to speak! I also like to use multimedia like videos, pictures and powerpoints to make lessons more interactive, especially online lessons! For beginners, I use the book Spanish Demystified or Easy Spanish Step by Step as a learning resource and to provide grammar homework.

Besides speaking, my lessons also cover the other aspects of a language: Reading, writing and listening comprehension. I target those skills with activities such as short readings & writing assignments for homework, and themed ...

About Christy
I was exposed to Spanish throughout my childhood from my dad who is from Colombia, and from my great Spanish teachers. After minoring in it at college, I perfected my fluency from living in Spain for 2 years and studying it for 18 years! My adventures with the language led me to pursue an MA in Spanish. I am currently a PhD student in Spanish Literature and work as a university instructor for Spanish conversation. I've also been tutoring individual and small groups of all levels for the past 5 years - Young children, high schoolers, college students, and adult learners! I enjoy leading creati
ve, interactive lessons that are different for each student I work with. My students have gone on to pursue bilingual positions, live in South America, or improve their performance in Spanish class by 2+ letter grades! I truly enjoy the work I do in helping others learn an important new skill.

Because I became fluent while immersed in the language, I believe language learning comes from speaking and communicating! So, my lessons focus mainly on speaking. I create interactive activities that help students learn speaking skills like making comparisons or ordering food. I also make sure to cover other aspects of the language (grammar, listening comprehension, reading, and writing) through explanations, in-class activities and homework. But, every lesson I teach is different! I tailor them to each student according to level, goals, pace, and learning style. And I make sure to get feedback from students at the end of each lesson to help plan future lessons. Overall, I am a resourceful, enthusiastic, attentive and creative tutor. I strive to challenge students while creating a comfortable and fun learning environment. Students of any level are welcome!

I look forward to possibly working with you... ¡Hasta pronto!

Christy was a great tutor. She listened to what I wanted to accomplish and then she tailored the lessons to help me achieve my goals. She is an excellent speaker and has studied both in Spain and Colombia. She is very creative and gives you relevant homework assignments to cement the lesson. She is always on time for the lessons and has never cancelled a lesson. I highly recommend her if you want to learn Spanish quickly!!

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.

During my tutor training I learned to adapt to different learning styles and needs. Depending on what YOU need to work on, we will take it from there. I like to start my appointments by asking what we are trying to accomplish in the lesson. I usually keep an agenda for the appointment, for example: 10 minutes of review, 15 minutes of exercises, 15 minutes of practice, 10 minutes of conversation and 10 minutes of review of what we learned. of course, it's YOUR appointment, you choose.

Profe Chmiel is one of my favorite teachers that I’ve had and she’s an excellent Spanish teacher. She makes the best out of boring lessons and is able to make them fun, entertaining, and relatable. She was able to answer most if not all the questions I had and was always super nice to me, my friends, and all the other students. I would highly recommend taking lessons from her, not only is she a wonderful teacher but a kind and considerate person.

Profe Chmiel was a great Spanish teacher. I had her when I was in 8th grade in Spanish 1 and she was very knowledgeable and super helpful. She also connected with the students which made her easy to talk to. She truly helps prepare you for more spanish later on. She is a great person as well as teacher!
