I have been teaching Spanish for 24 years, 12 at the University level. My method is highly engaging and interactive. I am specifically interested in teaching adults of any age who have a professional focus for their language acquisition, and teaching the elderly to enhance brain plasticity. I assure you that old 'dogs' can learn new languages! I teach both online and in my Durham NC office. Group classes within 15 miles of my home can be on your site or via webinar.

About Dorothy
Hello potential student! Let me introduce myself: I am a university-level Spanish and writing coach with 23 years of teaching experience. I earned a BA in Language and Literature at Yale University, and I have taught at Yeshiva University, Columbia University, and the New York College of Medicine. I am currently earning an MFA in creative writing at The University of the South.

I wrote my own book on beginning Spanish grammar for medical students at Einstein College of Medicine, and for many years I was a Spanish language curriculum developer and top teacher at Manhattan's Latin American Workshop language school. I have taught at a number of corporations, including General Motors, Brooklyn Legal Services, IBM and Trinity Investments.

But don't get the idea that I'm too lofty to teach basic Spanish or help the struggling young write
r! I enjoy introducing beginner students to my subjects, and I enliven my classes with music, poetry and art. I teach a lot of adults, but I also tutor high school students.

In addition to helping you with your Spanish or Writing skills, I also coach my students in how to practice on their own so that skills get sharper outside of class time as well.

Finally, I am sensitive to the fact that different people have different learning styles, so I adapt my approach for each student.

Have questions? Don't hesitate to write to me. I am also on the Take Lessons app, so if you're in a pickle we can connect that way, too.

Mariella Susana Gunderson

I am a Spanish native speaker teacher. I hold a degree in the field of Early Childhood Education issued in my country Lima-Peru. After my graduation from The Instituto Pedagogico Nacional Monterrico, I decided to traveled to the United States and stayed since then. I worked as a pre-school and first grade teacher in a bilingual private school in Miami. I also worked as a Readiness Specialist and Quality Assurance Specialist at the Early Childhood Education (ECE) Department for a non-profit organization in Miami Lakes and West Palm Beach.

After moving to Atlanta, I started working at Tabula Rasa school as a preschool and after-school teacher at the Spanish Program for 3 years. I worked for this private school with non-Spanish native speakers children of different ages exposed to a full immersion Spanish program. It was a rewarding professional and personal experience to see how my students became fluent in ...

About Mariella
Buenos dias a todos!
I am a native Spanish Tutor with a degree in the field of Education and certified by the State of Georgia in the fields of Early Childhood Education and Spanish. I have years of experience teaching my own language to adults, middle and high schoolers (individuals and small groups) as well as teaching Spanish to children from Pre-Kindergarten to Middle School in private schools. I am currently tutoring adults,middle school, high school, and college students.
Sometimes learning a foreign language can be overwhelming and frustrating, which is why I focus my lessons on UNDERSTANDING and SPEAKING Spanish from the very first class. My method is fun and you will learn real-life Spanish.
I have traveled a lot in Latin America , and have visited different Spanish-speaking countries. Thus, I am familiar with the regional dif
ferences of the language. I'm a very reliable person and nothing makes me happier than seeing my students make progress. My rates are competitive based on my experience. References available upon request.
Online tutoring offered at this moment only.
Please e-mail me if interested to let me know your needs and schedule.
Hasta luego!

She's a great teacher. Very pleasant and very good sense of humor. She knows I am very busy at work and her teaching methods are catered to my needs. She continues to review the basics and makes sure I comprehend the vocabulary before we proceed. I highly recommend her.

Brilliant instructor, fun and memorable exercises make it a class to look forward to. The improved atmosphere in learning with Mariella has allowed me to attain a more rapid progress that was conversationally and occupationally useful much sooner than I anticipated. Working with an instructor one on one also helps greatly decrease anxiety of learning when you will need to try your new skills on others who may not know you well if at all. The lessons she gives, along with the adjuncts on learning recommended, provide an efficacious and complete Spanish learning system where the goal you personally desire will be obtained, be it for travel, occupational, or cultural purposes. I cannot get over how many years I've studied Spanish using books and computer programs and audio CDs in the car, but then to make more progress in a short time than I had over years locks in that speaking high quality Spanish will be in your future if you continue with this instructor and follow her careful guidance.

I am an engaging and funny teacher of Spanish with almost twenty years of teaching experience from middle school through the university level. I incorporate many different games, strategies, and cultural contextual materials in order to help students master grammar, idioms, and vocabulary to help them to meet their goals.

About Rachel
I have a PhD in Russian and a BA in Spanish. I have taught both languages at many levels, from middle school through to graduate school. As a college student I lived and worked in Moscow, Russia as a security guard at the US Embassy, where I learned lots of unusual vocabulary in Russian related to items that could be picked up by the metal detector. I have also spent time studying and conducting research in Siberia and in St. Petersburg, Russia. I have lived, studied and traveled throughout Mexico, and taught public school Spanish and French for two years prior to graduate school. I am originally from Virginia, and before I started studying Russian in high school, I was planning to be a professional classical pianist. I live in Central Virginia now with my husband and our adorable but very demanding English bulldog, Lou. I am a member and
the Conference Manager for the American Association of Teachers of Slavic and East European Languages, and have taught Russian at the University of Richmond, the University of Virginia, Northern Virginia Community College, and Ferrum College. I regularly publish and present research at conferences in the field of Russian language teaching as well. I am a kind and merciful teacher, but require commitment and dedication from my students. You WILL learn from me, but you have to work too!

¡Hola amigos! I am a fully bilingual Mexican-American student born in Texas to Mexican parents. I lived in Mexico for 17 years, so if you're looking for an immersive lesson, you found the right instructor!

About Jaime
Hey there! I'm a fully bilingual (English & Spanish) graduate student at the University of Pittsburgh. I received my undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Texas at San Antonio and am now studying Rehabilitation Science and Technology. During my undergraduate career, I also took the necessary coursework to be considered a pre-med minor.

Additionally, I was also an all-around tutor for Sylvan Learning Center during the Summer of 2016. There, I taught children and teens of all ages on all of the subjects available. I also did a lot of ACT and SAT prep sessions.

My background as a Mexican-American, Mechanical Engineer, Pre-Med student. former Sylvan tutor and a current graduate student (which requires a lot of reading and writing) allows me to be a great instructor for subjects such as Spanish, Math, Science,
Language, and even ACT and SAT prep!

Jaime was an ABSOLUTELY AMAZING TEACHER! He had the ability to work with students who were Pre-K through college. He could relate to them in a way that that fostered mutual trust and provided a safety zone for students to work and grow as life-long learners. I completely and wholeheartedly believe that he has can teach any subject from beginning reading to WHATEVER!
