HOLA everyone, my name is Natalia, I was born in San Juan Puerto Rico and raised between U.S.A. and my beautiful Caribbean Island.
I have lived in Spain for 3 years working as a school teacher there, I traveled a lot around Europe, South and Central America and now I'm living in New York.
I graduated from University of Puerto Rico where I specialized in Performing Arts and Languages.
I have been teaching Spanish, English and Arts for more than 5 years now.
Most people I've taught first came to me saying "Spanish is so hard , I will never be able to speak it" or "When I try to speak Spanish, people don't understand me"
THIS WILL NOT HAPPEN WITH ME
Spanish is easy, you just need a good teacher who cares about YOU and adapts the lessons to YOUR NEEDS: I do!
----> How may hours do I need per week ?
** Depending on how fast you want to learn I recommend to start with 1 hour per week for a month to see if you like it and if you are motivated I think 4 hours per week ( 2 hours twice a week ) are ideal.
----> Will I have homework ?
** Yes , your homework will depend on your motivation.
I never give too much and it's always related to what we are working on.
----> What do you give your students to help them become fluent in 1 year?
** If you want to commit to 1 year of intensive Spanish , I will give you movies to watch in Spanish, radio shows to listen to , songs to learn , poems to learn , books to read ( adapting to your level ) , I will only speak to you in Spanish during the lesson ( of course if you don't understand I will translate).
You will learn a lot, and IT WILL BE FUN , I promise!!!
I look forward to meeting you !
¡Hasta luego! (See you soon!)
Natalia has lot's of experience. She is energetic and takes you step by step. Based on your level she will give you easy and fun homework. Trust me, aprenderás mucho en poco tiempo (you'll learn a lot in a short time).
" I thought learning Spanish was difficult but it is NOT!! And classes with Natalia are fun, plus she modify the class based on your interests"
