Lesson Details


Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
The students I have since tutored in Spanish have also shown tremendous amounts of progress - from improving grades and increasing confidence in class to improving fluency and communication skills in the workplace. I am patient and perceptive to the individual learning style of each student. This ability to personalize lessons is one of the many things that make me an excellent Spanish tutor. I recognize that everyone does not learn the same way, and I have a very individualized approach to teaching. 

When appropriate, depending on a student's skill level, I can tutor entirely in Spanish. But regardless of the level a student is at, I have many creative strategies to use. Whether you're a beginner or in advanced Spanish, I am skilled at adapting my lessons to match your level. I have also developed hundreds of resources over the past few years, which I am happy to share with you. 

I am flexible with scheduling, and have availability during the day, evenings, and on weekends. I am willing to tutor in-home or in a neutral place such as the public library, coffee shop or online. I look forward to hearing from you and helping you improve your Spanish language skills.

Teaching since:

My name is Paula, I am a native Spanish speaker having exceptional written and verbal fluency. I have been teaching Spanish for two years to children. Now I'm teaching all ages and levels. 

I like to use different kinds of materials and I emphasize communication as an important part of the learning process. 

I enjoy seeing my students’ progress and growing in their language skills. I can do in person or online the class.

I will be happy to help you to improve your skills in Spanish.
