Elena was able to teach someone 500 miles away the basics to a slew of different Latin ballroom dances (salsa, marengue, bachata, cumbia step, etc.) In just a few lessons I was able to feel comfortable enough with the steps and timing to be able to dance in public with others! She was very amazing and was willing to accommodate to my needs as a student. She gave plenty of reference material as well as songs so that I'd be able to practice when not taking lessons. I would highly recommend her as a teacher to anyone who is wanting to learn Latin Ballroom dance, but doesn't know where to start!

I have experience teaching and working with children as well as with adults. I feel comfortable teaching students in all different levels, from the beginner up to the advanced level. The typical approach that I use is a rather communicative one. I like to encourage students to speak and get engaged in real life situations.

I like to know my students, who you are and what your interests are so that I am not just your teacher, but also a friend. I like to think that I am a humorous person and it always makes me feel great when we can share a laugh or two in the class.

Come and join me!

If you're looking for top-tier, enjoyable, results-driven tutoring, send me a message. I've been helping students ace their next Spanish exam, paper, project, or standardized test, for over 10 years. But more importantly, I build lasting relationships with my students – meeting on a regular basis; covering all aspects of skill-building, test prep, and organization; and acting as a consistent presence in the student's life.

I speak and write fluently in Spanish. But as a native English speaker, I've learned the Spanish language from the ground up, just like my students.

I currently tutor students attending Horace Mann, Riverdale, Collegiate, Cornell University, and University of Cambridge, as well as adults and younger students.

About Jesse

Charlie
Highly recommend Jesse as a Spanish tutor! Have been working with Jesse for almost 9 months (2 hrs + / weekly) and my Spanish fluency has rapidly increased over this period. Jesse's lesson plans are highly curated for my specific goals, learning style and interests. It's been a pleasure working with Jesse and appreciate his willingness to accommodate with my busy work / travel schedule.

General Note: I majored in Spanish undergrad, and have explored a number of different way to continue learning in NYC - group classes and language programs have their value but can not complete with in-person, 1v1 instruction.
Katy C.
A knowledgeable and patient educator, Jesse has found a teaching style that perfectly balances challenge and inspiration. As a doctoral candidate in the sciences, it is important for me to assert my knowledge of a topic while capturing the attention of the reader. Jesse has taught me to transform bare facts and ideas into structured, sophisticated passages. He has played an active role in building my self-confidence and has helped me find an authentic writing voice to more clearly and elegantly express my thoughts. I am grateful to have his guidance and am eager to vouch for his excellence as a tutor.
Laura S.
I am so lucky that I found Jesse! He is thoughtful, thorough, patient, and kind, and his lessons always felt like they were tailored specifically to me and my needs. Even his teaching materials were personalized to include my name and phrases that only I would need to use (i.e. I'm an actress and piano teacher, and I've been living and working in NYC for over ten years). Highly recommended!

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.
