About Jimmy T.

My name is Jimmy. I have been teaching Spanish for about seven 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 parents or potential adult students and with me talk for a while before signing up for lessons. 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.

One last note: If we are meeting in person, I am only willing to meet in public locations and not anyone's home.

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

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.

First lesson was very good, very well paced, and he explained everything. We also practiced actual Spanish. Great first lesson.

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.
