Janet is a beautiful person inside and out. Janet was referred to me by a friend. I needed to start learning Spanish because I was going overseas to Columbia for 1 year. Janet is an extremely patient person. My primary goal was to learn conversational Spanish and to learn as much vocabulary as possible. Janet tailored to my needs and I greatly appreciated that. Janet is a confident young woman and she’s very good at what she does. I plan on getting more Spanish Lessons from her when I get back. Just within the first lesson I receive so much value. I would highly recommend Janet to anyone and would encourage you to purchase a package of lessons today you won’t regret. Thank you Janet I greatly appreciate you and look forward to working with you in the future. Have a great day! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Breeana is an excellent and talented teacher of Spanish. She is very patient,
creative and professional. She is genuinely excited about teaching. and makes
learning Spanish fun. she uses very creative methods to make the learning process both stimulating and interesting. As a student, I really look forward to
my lessons with her. I had Spanish in high school and found it to be
boring and hard to grasp. Now, however, I can't wait for my next lesson with her.
Thanks Breeana ,

I've been teaching Spanish for 24 years and my students have improved their grades , passed their Spanish tests, decided to travel to Spanish-speaking countries, become better qualified for jobs, enriched their relationships with friends and family and more! Within a few lessons you will feel empowered to communicate: speaking and understanding. Reading and writing skills, grammar, pronunciation, vocabulary will also be addressed as needed.I teach conversational Spanish, SAT subject test in Spanish, CLEP Spanish, AP Spanish language.Within a few lessons you will feel I have the age-appropriate resources, games and creative ideas to instill your love for learning Spanish and getting to know the Spanish culture.

About Carina
I love teaching all ages and levels because I enjoy seeing students learn and achieve personal, social or professional goals. Everybody can learn if I respect the student's needs, pace and learning style, and if I tap into his/ her interests and strengths. A comprehensive approach that includes speaking, reading, writing and listening is necessary, however I focus primarily on communication . I provide knowledge, fun, creativity and flexibility to guarantee a successful pleasant experience for all students.
I am a native from Argentina. I moved to the US in 1996, therefore I can relate to the feelings involved in learning a foreign language. I live a bilingual life raising my daughter who is 14 and my son who is 6 years old . I travel to Argentina once or twice a year. I teach conversational Spanish, SAT subject test in Spanish,
CLEP Spanish, AP Spanish language.

I've taught Spanish for several years now. Not only have I studied Spanish myself, but I lived in Peru and Mexico for several years, as well as traveled extensively around Latin America, gaining complete fluency. I offer Basic and Intermediate Conversational Spanish.

About Jackie
Hi there! My name is Jackie, and I have nearly 20 years of experience in teaching. All of my students, meaning a perfect 100%, have improved their grades by at least one letter grade, if not more, and passed every one of their tests and exams. I help all my students reach their goals.

The feedback I often receive from my students is that I made learning an enjoyable experience—they want to work harder to advance quickly in their classes. All of my students agree that I have a lot of patience and turn even the most challenging lessons into ones of positivity and encouragement. I provide critical feedback in the most constructive of ways that help the students reach conclusions on their own. I enjoy being there to support and guide their experience.

Basically, I love teaching. I'm enthusiastic yet patient, and I absolutely adore helpi
ng kids and adults alike learn. It's such a sense of accomplishment when my students show off their terrific grades. I see the same look in my students’ eyes regardless of age—that pride that shines from within, that exuberant smile, like they can conquer anything. I want my students to keep that pride for a long, long time.

Right now, I’m working on self-publishing a Spanish conversation textbook for beginning students and am writing an intermediate-level Spanish conversation textbook. I've also written several academic articles published online. When I’m not teaching, I enjoy traveling, playing with my cat, and swimming.

The students I have since tutored in Spanish have also shown tremendous amounts of progress - from improving grades and increasing confidence in class to improving fluency and communication skills in the workplace. I am patient and perceptive to the individual learning style of each student. This ability to personalize lessons is one of the many things that make me an excellent Spanish tutor. I recognize that everyone does not learn the same way, and I have a very individualized approach to teaching. 

When appropriate, depending on a student's skill level, I can tutor entirely in Spanish. But regardless of the level a student is at, I have many creative strategies to use. Whether you're a beginner or in advanced Spanish, I am skilled at adapting my lessons to match your level. I have also developed hundreds of resources over the past few years, which I am happy to share with you. 

I am flexible with scheduling, and have availability during the day, evenings, and on weekends. I am ...

Great first session. Paula was engaged and prepared and more importantly was able to keep my daughter engaged. She familiarized herself with where my daughter is in her Spanish studies in school and talked about what she struggles with and what she is more comfortable with. A plan was set moving forward with the material that will be covered. I am looking forward to her next lesson.

Learning Spanish for me was fun in middle and high school. I didn't know that I would be able to grasp everything so quickly and actually enjoy what I was learning. I want people to also have fun and enjoy taking on another language. I'm surprised at how much I've retained but I also love it and I hope whomever i teach loves it too.

Spanish in Philadelphia

By Alanna S. - Philadelphia Spanish Teacher

Although Philadelphia may be known by out-of-town visitors as the birthplace of America, real residents know that the Philly of our forefathers is so 1776. Today, the cobblestone streets of Philadelphia celebrate cultures, countries and languages from around the globe. There couldn’t be a better spot to learn a new language or immerse yourself in another culture.

There’s no doubt that the ability to speak Spanish is growing more and more important in this country. And with Spanish as the second most popular language spoken in the city, Philadelphia makes the perfect classroom - whether you’re brushing up for a vacation, want to learn a new skill, or hope to improve yourself professionally.

While taking Spanish lessons in Philadelphia, you’ll have endless opportunities to immerse yourself in the local art and culture, and you'll have the chance to meet like-minded hispanohablantes to share your adventures. Below are some great ways to turn your turf into your textbook:

Taller Puertorriqueño (http://tallerpr.org/) Focused on celebrating Puerto Rican and Latino culture through the lens of art and performance, Taller Puertorriqueño is based on the belief that communities can be built and improved through the arts. From book readings, theater performances, art exhibitions and much more, Taller Puertorriqueño is known as El Corazón Cultural del Barrio (The Cultural Heart of Latino Philadelphia). If it takes more than an art show to help the language sink in, Taller has endless ways to get involved. Through their Visítenos program, they offer workshops, tours, lectures and more to promote a cultural awareness of the Puerto Rican and Latino local community. Even better, you can brush up on the vocab you’ve learned in your Spanish lessons in Philadelphia while giving back to the community. Opportunities to volunteer as homework-helpers for Spanish-speaking children give you the chance to help yourself and another at the same time.

Raíces Culturales (http://www.raicesculturales.org/) Not only does Raíces Culturales aim to explore the incredible culture of Latin America through art and performance, it fights against stereotypes and encourages diversity. From mural painting to a monthly lecture series, there is plenty to explore here. If you are seeking a little more rhythm in your day, you can join the weekly Descarga, a community jam session and open mic. With Descarga open free to the public every week, you can sit back and take in some new vocab, or get creative with your Spanish homework and share your own work.

Meetup.com (http://spanish.meetup.com/cities/us/pa/philadelphia/) Let’s face it - everything is easier with a good amigo at your side. Through Meetup.com, there are tons of possible groups to join to work with others who share your goal. It seems evident that the more opportunities you have to speak Spanish, the more comfortable you will feel. Not only do these Meetups give you the opportunity to have fun and find new friends, you won’t even realize how much easier the language is becoming. At the time of writing, there are over 14 groups for practicing Spanish within 25 miles from Philadelphia, which range from happy hours to group outings to cultural events.

Hispanic Festival (http://www.elconcilio.net/blog/events/hispanic-festival-at-penns-landing-2/) Put down the textbook. Sometimes a fiesta is the best way to learn! Every summer, PECO sponsors the Multicultural Summer Series at beautiful Penn’s Landing, a summer-long celebration of the diverse cultures that make Philadelphia thrive. Every July, the two-day Hispanic Festival celebrates Hispanic culture with incredible food, performances, and activities. It may not feel like you’re studying, but immerse yourself in this incredible language and culture, and your education becomes a celebration.
