My name is Dunia! It is my pleasure to help you learn this exciting language. My classes are based on your interests. We can talk about your likes, hobbies, culture and more. We will speak Spanish from day one, but don't worry because I'm here to support you and guide you through any difficulties you may face. I will tailor my classes according to your needs. I also happen to have a Bachelors Degree in Liberal Arts (Spanish Literature) from the City University of New York and more than eight years of teaching experience. Currently, I am learning Chinese myself and I know that learning a language can be fun and a way to feel at home anywhere you go. With practice and appropriate grammar review, you will enjoy it too. Hope to hear from you soon! Nos vemos en clase.

Experience

Spanish Department Coordinator
Feb 2015 - Feb 2017
IL Texas High School

Having taught Spanish to high school and middle school students prepared me for the job of the department coordinator. In this position I was required to set up the whole curriculum and exams for all the Spanish teachers in the school. Many times, we needed to collaborate with the other teachers in order to make certain themed events pertaining to Spanish learning and culture. We were able to create a positive learning atmosphere for our students and they were able to progress despite the difficulties of learning Spanish in China.

I just had my first lesson with Dunia after I had been looking for a class in Spanish conversation, Although I had taken Spanish at the University for 4 years, I had not spoken it in many years, so I was hoping that this would both refresh forgotten vocabulary and grammar as well as teach daily phrases of conversation. Dunia was very well prepared and guided me through conversation using both pictures and text. She was very patient with me, helping out with missing words and correcting me when asked. Additionally, she gave very useful tips regarding websites either in Spanish or helping to learn it that I will definitely check out. Dunia is very friendly, approachable, and easy to talk to and understand. I am very much looking forward to my next lesson!

My first lesson: Dunia was very organized, very patient with me (despite the fact that I was having technical difficulties with my own Skype setup), and very easy to understand.

Looking forward to my next lesson!

At work I often have to deal with Spanish speaking personel though I had some knowledge of Spanish prior to my classes I was definetly not at the level I wanted to be. So a couple of months ago I started taking business Spanish classes with Ms. Dunia. In my personal experience what impressed me most about Ms. Dunia is her professionalism and attitude towards my learning difficulties. I had trouble with some particular aspects of Spanish grammar which she was able to explain in a simple and understandable way. Though mastering Spanish may be difficult , Ms. Dunia has been able to help me with learning the intricacies of the language in a fun and easy way.
