Get Inspired: Spanish Lessons in Pittsburgh

So, you’ve decided to learn the Spanish language! If you currently have very little association with the Spanish language or culture, fear not. Pittsburgh offers a wide range of learning opportunities, including a Spanish language meetup group, with events for native speakers and new beginners alike, geared to ability level.

A good starting point for studying anything at all is to have a firm idea of what you want to get out of your lessons, and what your end goal might be. For example, a course of study for conversational purposes and getting by when on vacation in Spanish speaking countries will differ somewhat from a course geared towards someone who needs to learn Spanish for business purposes or for college credits.

The Hispanic population of Pittsburgh is only around 1%, but there is a wide variety of Latin American and other Spanish cultural events that take place within the city each year. Local Latino restaurants and bars run regular functions that may be of interest to new Spanish students, and the Hispanic Studies departments at the universities will offer a varied program of activities and talks to supplement and enrich your personal study of the language. If your tastes run to the performing arts - both participating and viewing - Salsa Pittsburgh's website (http://www.salsapittsburgh.com/event_calendars.html) offers a full dance events calendar filled with opportunities to get moving. Additionally, the Latin American Cultural Union (http://www.lacunet.org/#!clients/c1tsl) can keep you fully informed with regard to poetry readings, theatrical events, and even an annual picnic.

With regard to study of the language itself, you may want to track down like-minded individuals who can band together and practice vocabulary and conversational skills together. If you're shy, or new to learning languages, you may feel less intimidated to start with by working on a one to one basis with a teacher. Bear in mind that there's no way to learn a language faster than to use it, however, so do consider finding a buddy to learn with, even if you're both only becoming confident about asking directions, or telling new acquaintances a little about yourself with your new skills. Check out the Pittsburgh Spanish Language Meetup Group: http://www.meetup.com/Pittsburgh-Spanish/

Not sure where to start, or how to begin? Looking for a teacher through a reputable tutoring site is an easy, safe place. Taking Spanish lessons in Pittsburgh is great for students who are looking to get involved in the language for any reason, whether they want to be a language teacher, conversational speaker, or are a career-focused individual. All students are able to polish their newfound and growing skills. All things Spanish are thriving in this city- so there's no better time to take Spanish lessons in Pittsburgh.

Not only have I studied Spanish, but I have also lived in Peru and Mexico for a several years, as well as traveled extensively around Latin America, gaining complete fluency. In addition to Basic, Intermediate, and Advanced Conversational Spanish, I also teach Spanish for Healthcare Professionals.

About Jackie
Hi! My name is Jackie, and I have 15+ years of experience in teaching, tutoring, and training. Currently, I am enjoying managing two small businesses while teaching students part time.

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 clients reach their goals!

A couple years ago, I returned to San Diego after living in Peru for several years where I taught English as a second language. My students ranged from adult business people and academicians to primary and
secondary school students. I really needed to utilize different teaching methods depending on each student’s needs. Some students wanted more business-related conversation, so I had to be able to teach business principles in marketing, communication, logistics, interviewing, and so much more. Critical thinking was an area that I pushed my business students to improve. Other students needed to work on the basics of grammar, reading, and writing, and we had a lot of fun in class, whether going through the interactive lesson or improvising by playing fun games to emphasize thinking on their feet in another language.

The feedback I often received from my Peruvian students, as well as my students in Mexico and the U.S., was that I made learning an enjoyable experience—they wanted 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!

Before I left for Peru, I worked at St Vincent de Paul Village (part of Father Joe's Villages) in downtown San Diego. There I focused on Health Education. I built the Villages' first Health Education department and helped start its innovative Health & Wellness program. As part of these two programs, I taught homeless and low-income adults with and without learning disabilities, as well as children from preschoolers to high school students. Teaching such a wide variety of students how to improve their health while living in sometimes precarious situations without much income or stability pushed me to think creatively and come up with memorable ways to engage the students and help them apply what they had learned in their daily routine.

In high school, I took all AP and college prep classes. I went to a liberal arts college in Virginia where I focused on social studies and biology. I spent a few years training business people in Microsoft Office, Photoshop, InDesign, as well as presentation techniques. In grad school, I specialized in applied anthropology and public health. During that time, I tutored students in web design. In between, I've worked in Communications and Training in international health and development, so I have a lot of experience to bring to teaching.

Basically, I love teaching. I'm enthusiastic yet patient, and I absolutely adore helping 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 writing two textbooks to be used in my Spanish classes. I've also written several academic articles published online. I love traveling, cats, and learning!
