Mastering fundamentals is extremely important when learning a language. I will tailor the lesson to your needs. We'll begin with mastering the sounds of each letter, then move on to common words, phrases, and simple conversations. Whether it's for travel, leisure, or work, practicing is key. Once you get your footing, we'll expand your vocabulary and understanding of grammar.

About Joy
I am a graduate of UC San Diego (bachelor of arts, sociology) and UCLA (master of public policy). As a child of immigrant parents, I value diversity and love learning languages. I read, write and speak Spanish fluently, and have intermediate command of both Cantonese and Mandarin Chinese in reading, writing, and speech.

Photography has been one of my main areas of focus for over ten years. I am trained in both film and digital formats and specialize in demystifying the DSLR so that you gain a good understanding of manual settings and how to use each to improve your photos.

Caring, compassion, and understanding are essential for learning and I strive to do my best in these areas.

Joy is lovely and has been very flexible with my schedule. You can tell she loves photography and enjoys teaching. If I was more of an online learner I would have rated the session a 5. I am now realizing I am more of a hands on person it is personally challenging for me to learn using this method. In an ideal world we would be learning by shooting in real time.

I've been teaching Spanish (as well as French and English) for ten years off and on. I tailor the curriculum to the student whether they are simply taking a vacation or wish to live in a Spanish speaking country. I tailor the curriculum according to goals the student has in taking Spanish, any specific countries or cultures the student is most interested in, as well as professional goals.

About Jackie
Hi there! Thanks for taking the time to check out my profile. Just a side note, I DO have a background check just not through the company TakeLessons wants me to use. I have taught elementary and middle school aged children through this website (as well as adults.) I have experience tutoring high school students in Spanish and French as an undergrad in college. I also taught English abroad while I studied in Geneva, Switzerland. I have taught English as a Second Language as a volunteer in the city. This past year I have taught French, Spanish, and English as a Second Language through TakeLessons.

I am TEFL certified and have a B.A. in Political Science - concentration in International Politics, minors in French and Theatre.

Here are some articles I have written featured here on the Take Lessons website -

I've been teaching foreign languages for more than 20 years. You'll build up your knowledge from speaking simple sentences at first to using your vocabulary more confidently and conjugating like a pro! I have been using different textbooks that emphasize the four major skills in language learning: listening, speaking, reading and writing. I also use recorded materials, worksheets and easy and intermediate readers in class. I hope you can join me in this great adventure of world languages.

About Helena
I am a native speaker of Portuguese and got my degree in English (ESL) and French Teaching in my home country, Portugal. I have been teaching foreign languages and ESL for more than 20 years and am comfortable working with all age groups. I taught 17 years in Portugal (ESL and French; 6-12 grades and Adult Education Programs) and ever since I moved to the US in 2010 (Portuguese and Spanish in a corporation, and tutoring all four languages at home or online). I am a very patient, motivated and enthusiastic teacher and I always adjust my teaching methods to the student's age, needs and purpose. I never give up on a student and I am sure I can help him/her attain his/her full potential. I believe anyone can learn a new language but consistent repetition and refreshing before, during and after class is needed. I expect the student to be resp
onsible, patient and persistent in his learning process and I am willing to help him/her on the way.

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 ...

I am a native-Spanish speaker (Colombian) and can teach you both the basics of grammar and culture as well as the advanced subtleties of the language!

About marc
Hi guys!

I am both an English and music teacher who lives in America at the moment. I both work as an English teacher for refugees near Seattle as well as play as a professional musician. I have been teaching for about 5 years both in America and in Europe. My most recent teaching abroad was in Italy, where I taught Italian and English to refugees in Milan. This has allowed me to teach to people from over 50 countries and from all sorts of age groups!

I am a native-English speaker so I can help you with cultural aspects of the language as well as the basics of grammar and pronunciation. I have a TEFL certificate as well as well as a C1 language proficiency in Spanish, Italian, and German if those languages interest you as well! I have also been a professional musician since I was 14. I play bass, piano, and drums, and can teach all
of these instruments as well as music theory!

I mainly want you guys to succeed and have fun learning so I try to have a fun learning environment, and I am very open to talk and teach nearly any subject that y'all are interested in!

Mr. Marc was an extremely enthusiastic instructor that made me excited about all of the material he taught me. He is very resourceful and uses a unique approach that I never had encountered from any other instructor. He is very kind and knowledgeable in many subject areas, and is an incredible musician. My playing improved tremendously under his instruction. I would HIGHLY recommend him to students of any age!
