I have studied spanish for over 30 years and taught it for over 10. I speak it daily with native speakers from Venezuela, Puerto Rico, Dominican republic and Spain. My fiance is Venezuelan and I am teaching her english. This is not your typical high school spanish course. With the methods I use, I guarantee you will actually understand the concepts of spanish. One of my former students parents recommended that I give lessons online because of my unique approach. You will learn to speak as a native in a very creative way. I have a curriculum for all ages. I will help you become a successful spanish speaker. Empecemos!!

About Lashon J.

I am a spanish tutor/teacher with a combined 30 yrs experience in the spanish language. I took my first lesson at 8 yrs old. I am engaged to my beautiful venezuelan fiance who is a native spanish speaker and speaks very little english. I was an assistant tutor at the Cleveland spanish school for 4 yrs. I also volunteered at the local cleveland public libraries assisting in English for spanish speakers here during that time before I became completely independent and started teaching from home or other public venues

I have always had a passion for languages and the world that it opens. I have been able to see some great places, hear and meet great people. It would be a pleasure to help you succeed whether you are a beginner or more advanced and just need to be refreshed.

I have only taken one lesson so far, but Lashon is great. He seems very passionate about the language and teaching. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him.

We feel so lucky to have found this instructor Lashon. Our daughter attends classes 2 day a week for Spanish class. She started last year in the 8th grade and is continuing over the summer. She struggled in the beginning But now she is thriving and love speaking her 2nd language.

By far the best Spanish instructor ever! He takes his time with you, and breaks things down so you could really understand the language. He teaches In a way I can understand when people are speaking, way better than high school classes that only teaches you how to read and write a little bit.

Very nice instructor! At first I was nervous about my daughter starting Spanish lessons, I thought it was too early. Lashon reassured me that this is a perfect age to start so I just gave it a try. My daughter started working with Lashon at 2 1/2... she is 3 now. My daughter can point out objects around the house and name them in spanish! It’s such an exciting thing to witness!! She can even tell me in spanish that she has to potty! Thank you sooo much Lashon and all the hard work you’ve done thus far!!!!

Started learning in one week, now I'm able to communicate with my coworkers who can't speak English as of yet. It makes them feel good especially with everything that is going on. Gracias, Lashon. Nunca pensé que podría aprender otro idioma, pero gracias a ti mi sueño se está convirtiendo en una realidad.
