- Levels Taught:
- Beginner, Intermediate
Have you ever tried to learn Spanish, (or any other language, for that matter), and it just never seemed to stick? How about if you've ever thought about starting to learn a language but found it daunting because the book, or the teacher or whatever, is using jargon you feel you need a dictionary to understand?
I have been teaching and tutoring language for about nine years, and my lessons are taught the same as I learned them; conversationally, repetitive (to practice recall), only a few words at a time, and overall, NATURALLY.
I have been exposed to multiple languages within my environment for the first seventeen years of my life before actually bothering to make this thing I loved so much into a hobby.
The thing is, the many books and lessons I've been through forget one thing; When it comes to language we start out as babies, so we have learn from scratch!!
All o' that, "pre- and post- position from the theory of the past tense conjugal verb according to the square root of 34"... my brain hurts just thinking about it.
If I show you a picture of a fish, and then tell you "pescado", would you eventually figure out what "pescado" means? Exactly.
We don't need all that. Just good, honest conversation.
That's what I'm here to do with you. Looking forward to talking with you.

My name is Amargeaux, and I have been have been teaching and tutoring language for about nine years.
I was exposed to multiple languages for, like, the first seventeen years of my life before I ever wanted to make languages into a hobby. But when I did, I realized that people were making language learning harder than it actually was.
They were giving a bunch of jargon no one understood to teach something so simple, you know? You don't need crazy, brainiac, scientific words in order to learn just one new word!
When I teach people languages , I teach them the same way they learned English; in a normal conversation.
(I Promise I won't use baby talk with you,) But you DO start off as if you were a baby, because frankly, when it comes to a new language, you are. No offense.
I want to just talk with you. The best way to learn is to be as organic as possible, which is not hard. I love people, and I'm VERY patient.
We use conversation to be very repetitive (for the sake of practicing recall -- VERY important!!) And then we'll do the occasional drill just to make sure it's sticking (as if it isn't already.)
We will learn just a few words at a time, so you won't have to worry about feeling overwhelmed, and we'll keep switching back and forth Between English and your new language until you have enough in your vocabulary to speak only the new language.
You know you can do this, otherwise you wouldn't be looking for a teacher. I don't even know you yet, and I KNOW you're capable of everything you put your mind to.
Let me give you a chance to show you just how capable you are.
Looking forward to chatting with you. Lots of love!
