I am a native Spanish speaker who has been teaching and tutoring Spanish for about 7 years. My goal is to make learning Spanish enjoyable, and I want to help the student feel more confident expressing their thoughts and ideas in a foreign language. I am very patient and supportive of my students all throughout the learning process .

My approach strikes a balance between grammar and verbal comprehension/ speaking skills. I try to lay a strong foundation that will help the student succeed on every level.
Often students do a lot of written exercises but seldom have an opportunity to put into practice what they have learned. That is why conversation is such a fundamental part of my lessons.

I understand the difficulties of learning a foreign language, I carefully tailor the lessons to the needs of my students. I slowly guide them from point A to point B, step by step. With this approach, I help them to discover how truly fun learning Spanish can be!
My goal is to help each student achieve success in Spanish.

About Irene P.

I am a College educated native Spanish and English speaker who has been teaching and tutoring Spanish for about 7 years. My goal is to make learning Spanish enjoyable, and I want to help the students feel confident expressing their thoughts and ideas in this foreign language.

My approach is student centered, incorporating grammar, verbal comprehension and vocabulary acquisition . I try to lay down a strong foundation that will help the student succeed on every level and eventually attain fluency.
I'm often approached by people who tell me that they took Spanish in H.S. or College and are frustrated because they can't understand a native speaker or communicate with them.
Most likely they learned the theory of the language but had little opportunity to put it into practice. That is why conversation is such a key component of my teaching. No one can learn any language without developing verbal and listening comprehension skills.
With me the student can choose their favorite topic and perfect their conversation skills in an environment where it's ok to make mistakes.

I understand the difficulties of learning a foreign language, and I'm very patient with my students. I carefully guide them from point A to point B, step by step. With this approach, I help them to discover how learning Spanish can be truly rewarding !
I look forward to meeting you and helping you reach your goals.

Irene is so great! She is warm and friendly and very patient -- she explains things slowly and clearly, and I'm having a really fun time working on my Spanish with her. Would highly recommend!

I have two lessons with Irene already. I found her to be very knowledgeable and patient. I am a total beginner. She really takes her time to explain a lot of things to me. I am very comfortable with her. The on-line format is very easy and useful.
Nothing can beat learning a new language and it is so easy to practice with so many Spanish-speaking people around us. I love it.

Ms.Irene's lessons are well prepared and organized. My 11-year old son likes the way she is teaching and checking the pronunciation in every class. He is very interested in learning from Ms.Irene and can't wait for his weekend class to start.

I am 48 years old who like the Spanish language and have been trying for a few years to learn it on my own. I have tried Duolingo, bought books, and watched Youtube Videos but I was still struggling to put a sentence together. I am taking lessons with Irene and I can see big progress. Irene tailors the sessions to my needs and toward my goal. She prepares the session, is on time and takes her time to make sure I am understanding the concepts. I really enjoy the class and look forward to it. Whatever is your goal, I recommend Irene.

We have really enjoyed working with Professora Irene!!! She really knows Spanish as she speaks it fluently. I appreciate her being able to teach my children real Spanish, so they learn correct pronunciations and how to correctly converse in Spanish.
