I first heard Spanish from my dad who's Colombian, so my lessons focus on communication via dynamic task-based activities! First you discover grammar functions & the meaning of vocab through simple comprehension activities. Then we practice these new items through conversation questions or communication activities that simulate real-life tasks like ordering food, asking for directions, or describing a person. This creates a fun atmosphere for learning and gives students ample opportunities to speak! I also like to use multimedia like videos, pictures and powerpoints to make lessons more interactive, especially online lessons! For beginners, I use the book Spanish Demystified or Easy Spanish Step by Step as a learning resource and to provide grammar homework.

Besides speaking, my lessons also cover the other aspects of a language: Reading, writing and listening comprehension. I target those skills with activities such as short readings & writing assignments for homework, and themed ...

About Christy
I was exposed to Spanish throughout my childhood from my dad who is from Colombia, and from my great Spanish teachers. After minoring in it at college, I perfected my fluency from living in Spain for 2 years and studying it for 18 years! My adventures with the language led me to pursue an MA in Spanish. I am currently a PhD student in Spanish Literature and work as a university instructor for Spanish conversation. I've also been tutoring individual and small groups of all levels for the past 5 years - Young children, high schoolers, college students, and adult learners! I enjoy leading creative, interactive lessons that are different for each student I work with. My students have gone on to pursue bilingual positions, live in South America, or improve their performance in Spanish class by 2+ letter grades! I truly enjoy the work I do in
helping others learn an important new skill.

Because I became fluent while immersed in the language, I believe language learning comes from speaking and communicating! So, my lessons focus mainly on speaking. I create interactive activities that help students learn speaking skills like making comparisons or ordering food. I also make sure to cover other aspects of the language (grammar, listening comprehension, reading, and writing) through explanations, in-class activities and homework. But, every lesson I teach is different! I tailor them to each student according to level, goals, pace, and learning style. And I make sure to get feedback from students at the end of each lesson to help plan future lessons. Overall, I am a resourceful, enthusiastic, attentive and creative tutor. I strive to challenge students while creating a comfortable and fun learning environment. Students of any level are welcome!

I look forward to possibly working with you... ¡Hasta pronto!

Christy was a great tutor. She listened to what I wanted to accomplish and then she tailored the lessons to help me achieve my goals. She is an excellent speaker and has studied both in Spain and Colombia. She is very creative and gives you relevant homework assignments to cement the lesson. She is always on time for the lessons and has never cancelled a lesson. I highly recommend her if you want to learn Spanish quickly!!

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 ...

Saludos!

My name is Alex and I have always had a passion for learning the wonderful language of Espanol. Whether you are a new student or simply hoping to brush up on your phrases and conversation, I would be more than happy to help!

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. I have spent a summer in both Peru and Argentina to better my understanding of the language. Learning a language can be a full time job, and any chance I can get, I seize the opportunity to practice with natives.

I studied Spanish and lived in Ecuador for a year where I volunteered at a school and edited a Spanish textbook. I can help beginning and intermediate students with speaking, reading, writing and grammar. I promise to make your Spanish classes interesting and fun. If you would like to study Spanish literature or film we can incorporate those into our lessons. I love the Spanish language and would be happy to help you achieve Spanish proficiency while cultivating a love for the language. I offer a free consultation to discuss Spanish lessons.

About Marie
I have been an educator for more than ten years. In that time, I've taught and tutored English, Language Arts and Spanish to students from elementary to PhD level. I also help students study for the SAT, ACT and TOEFL tests and coach students through the college and graduate school application process. I love teaching and learning. I am patient, enthusiastic and dedicated to my students.

My teaching philosophy can be summed up in a few words : learning should be fascinating, individualized and fun. Helen Keller said, “ A well-educated mind will always have more questions than answers.” My goal is to help my students ask the questions that will lead them to deeper understanding. The poet Mark Van Doreen said, “The art of teaching is the art of assisting discovery.” In our lessons, I will help you make discoveries that will inspire you
to keep learning.

When I’m not teaching, I love reading, exploring the California coast, writing poetry and singing loudly.

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 have been a Spanish teacher for 15 years and fluent for over 25. Helping people to converse in Spanish is what I love to do. What do you want to talk about in Spanish? That is a great place to start. Spanish is a language and is meant to be spoken. We will focus on your ability to have authentic conversations in Spanish and clarify grammar points as needed or desired. You will be able to speak more and more with each lesson!

With each lesson you will be able to speak and interact more in Spanish. I believe that conversation is best part of learning a foreign language.

Most teachers can teach definitions and meaning, however, what they lack is proper context. When learning any new language, context is an incredible resource. Not only was I born in the Spanish speaking island of Puerto Rico, but I believe my knowledge of multiple Spanish speaking countries will provide a unique learning experience. If this resonates, do not hesitate to contact me.

About Jan
I am an admissions counselor at a small-private christian university, which I also graduated from with a Bachelors in Marketing.

As your tutor, expect patience and optimism. I simply don't know another way of engaging with other. I love things like: culture, theological discussions, back packing, veganism, personality types, entrepreneurship, and the small things that bring me joy.

Context is an incredible resource when learning another language. If you have ever tried learning on your own, you would know that Spanish presents many contextual barriers. This is were I can in. I was born in Puerto Rico (an island in the Caribbean) and lived there until it was time for college. Therefore, Spanish is my first language and I have a goal of learning a total of 5. Russian is the third one because I so happened to have a Russian co-worker that
loved teaching me.

Would love to add value in your ability to grasp Spanish. :)
