Teaches students:
and Ages 4+

Teaching since:
August 2012

My name is Jimmy. I have been teaching Spanish for about five years now. I have taught all ages from kindergarten to adults.

As a current teacher, my primary goal is to make sure the students have engaging and fun experiences while learning Spanish. I do not lecture solely on the nuts and bolts of the language but rather allow the student to perform the language in order to learn it.

I do want to make clear that I do teach young children (ages 2-12) but I prefer to teach them in person and at least twice a week. I believe the experience to be more valuable that way.

Additionally, I ask that you and I talk for a while before signing up for lessons with me. I may not be able the person to give you what you need. I want to be sure your needs are met through Take Lessons and I may not be the person that can do that. So, please message me often.

I am always excited to teach someone this language I love so much.

¡Gracias!

His lesson plan was very easy to follow, and it was based around my personal needs. He also gave me homework so I wouldn't lose what was already learned.

Jimmy is a delight. He is enthusiastic, intelligent, knowledgable and beyond all that personable, attentive and encouraging. I felt Jimmy paying attention to me and helping me learn exactly at the place I am at rather than attempting to put me in some structure that didn't fit me at all.

He's the best tutor I ever had. He really goes well over the courses that you don't understand. He also respond to you back in time.

i had a great time with Jimmy. He was easy to follow and gave me information that would allow me to remember how to say the words needed. I would pick him again when wanting to take my next class.
