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.

Great first session. Paula was engaged and prepared and more importantly was able to keep my daughter engaged. She familiarized herself with where my daughter is in her Spanish studies in school and talked about what she struggles with and what she is more comfortable with. A plan was set moving forward with the material that will be covered. I am looking forward to her next lesson.
