Spanish Lessons in Philadelphia, PA

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.

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 ...

About Alex
A bit about me; I am from the Philadelphia area and went to college in Pittsburgh at Duquesne University graduating with a double major in Logistics & International Business plus a minor in Spanish.

Hola and welcome!
Spanish won’t be any hard for you!
I will give you easy formulas for complex sentences, and if you are a visual learner, you will enjoy the multimedia practices, if learn better from hearing, I created a very fun system that matches words that you know in English with words in Spanish!

I’m a Spanish native speaker with ten years of experience as a teacher for children from four years old and up, and a tutor for adults and young adults.

I review and improve my curriculum once a month, and keep well informed of what the Real Academy for Spanish language accepts and rules.

I’m a price winner writer and poet, as well. If you already know Spanish, let’s bring out that writer living in you!

I look forward to teaming up with you,

Mariana

About Mariana
When I was growing up, we spoke English and Spanish at home.

I moved to Pennsylvania in 2010, and I started to teach Spanish in a close-by library to adults who were so engaged, that I felt motivated to create a more natural plan to help them remember the Spanish words with associations in English. In the same year, I started teaching Spanish at Lango to kids between two and six years old; I consistently used songs and puppets to reinforce my class success. I worked there for one year and two months before the Lango office moved to New York.
But my library group was growing larger.

I want to be part of my students footprint, I want them to see in knowledge the way to a good and productive life, but also to inspire in them the desire to teach others in any field where they apply their capacities.

I’m always available whenever a student
or parent needs talking to me, and I would like to team up with the formers to improve my students’ learning experience. Please feel free to reach to me at any time.

Interesting facts
I wrote for a Mexican national newspaper from 2005-2016.
In 2006 I won the poetry prize Rosario Muñoz.
I research the linguistic neural connections where language lives in our brain.

I thank you for stopping by.
I look forward to teaming up with you,

Mariana

I currently tutor and teach Spanish to USA Veterans and students struggling around campus. I have years of academic and practical usage/experience with the language. I grew up hearing it and studied it in high school and college level. I know what it is like to be a student in a Spanish class as well as using it in real life application. I also have 2 minors in Spanish Language and Latino/a and Latin American Studies (Formerly known as CBS: Chicano-Boricua Studies) which give me the perfect mix of language and culture.

I am very patient and work on your level. I have years of academic and practical usage/experience with the language. I use that experience to put myself in your shoes and give tips and cultural things that may help you better understand your new language. Also, my knowledge of Psychology helps us hack learning in a time efficient way. No question is ever a dumb question and we will spend as much time on a topic as needed.

About Jamone
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.

I have a bachelor's degree in Spanish and lived in Spain for eight years. I teach reading, composition, pronunciation, grammar, and conversation based on reading. I can combine all these into one if you wish. I have a deep, innate understanding of how language works and can explain things in ways other teachers might not be able to. I love Spanish and will convey that to you as well. I accept middle-school, high-school, and college students as well as adult learners.

About David
I'm patient, intelligent, understanding, and kind. I won't judge you for your level of Spanish. My only concern is that you enjoy the lessons and learn. Please send me any professional questions. Thank you.
