My language lessons are customized to my student's needs and preferences.
When teaching Spanish I don't only focus on teaching the grammar and vocabulary but also on transmitting my culture as I introduce you to Spanish literature, movies from different Spanish speaking countries and also Spanish music. After all, there's a lot more to Spanish culture than soap operas!

Teaching Spanish in New York city gives me the opportunity to create situations of Spanish immersion for you, we can always select different Spanish locations in the city to practice lesson topics such as "asking for directions", "shopping", and so forth.

About Isa S.

As a teacher, I'm very proactive, which means I never settle with just a book! I enjoy creating exercises and strategies according to my students' needs and preferences. This includes incorporating music, literature, movies and games to the daily lesson. As a teacher, I'm very patient and I consider highly important to follow each step on the student's learning process.

As a native speaker with fluency in English and deep knowledge of grammar and phonetics, I can guarantee my students will learn the proper pronunciation of the Spanish/English sounds and the semantics of the target language lexicon. I'm also highly educated to teach all levels. I'm very comfortable teaching all advanced subjects as I am teaching the basics.

I’ve taken classes for years both online and in person, and Isa is the only Spanish teacher I’ve stayed with the whole time, which is a reflection of how highly I think of her as an instructor. As I’ve improved from a beginner to an advanced level, Isa has adjusted our classes to my level and pushed me to improve. She recognizes my weaker areas and always has a strategy to address them. Our classes consist of a balance of every day conversation or an article to read, followed by exercises to improve my fluency or increase my vocabulary. She is a native Spanish speaker, who is equally fluent in English, and is able to explain concepts in both languages. Regardless of your level, Isa will be a great instructor for you.

The BEST! I have been taking Spanish classes with Isabel off and on for the last 5 years. I've tried other teachers, but always keep coming back to Isabel. She is thoughtful in her lessons and has always been able to customize them for my changing level and interests. As a teacher, she is kind, patient, and fun, and will make you feel comfortable to speak and stay motivated. Not to mention, she has an extensive knowledge of linguistics, making her able to explain all types of grammar and uses of the language. Each class is always well spent - both effective and enjoyable. I look forward to my classes each week and can't recommend her enough!

Isa is a wonderful Spanish instructor. I’ve had lessons with Isa weekly for the past few months and she’s definitely helped improve my conversational skills. She is personable, teaches with humor, patiently corrects my mistakes. Lessons are with purpose, yet in a relaxed environment.

¿Me encanata Isa! I absolutely love her teaching. She is smart, engaging, fun to work with, and very creative. The lessons are a combination of conversation mixed with grammar. She gives me interesting homework that involves listening to songs and picking out specific grammatical aspects, reading, and watching television in Spanish. I never do online reviews, but I had to do this one for Isa because she truly is a gem. โ€ผI recommend her highly!!

For three weeks I went to a daily Spanish private course with Isa and got to know this amazing woman and teacher. Isa is very cheerful and enthusiastic teacher and creates the lessons due to the specific needs of every student. As she used a lot of creative teaching methods as analyzing songs and reading short stories I had a lot of fun and never got bored. I learned so much and I am very sad I can't continue taking lessons as I had a really great time learning Spanish with Isa!!
