Learn from a native Spanish speaker. I started working as a part-time evening job. Currently, I am looking to become a full-time tutor because I noticed students beneficial more in a one on one teaching style. I consider myself to be very flexible with my students' schedule and try my best to address their needs in my teaching style. I follow a Spanish immersion curriculum for kids and encourage a native-like use of the language to my student who already have advance knowledge of the subject.

About susan Z.

I am specialized in Spanish. I worked in a dual immersion classroom in after school programs and taught AP Spanish in Pittsburg High. So, I am very comfortable in any kind of level of Spanish

I employ interactive activities for my young students to learn Spanish while having fun. I am familiar with technology, songs, games and pedagogy that ensure a proper learning of the language. I also have experience teaching adults and youth as an extra support for their classes or for a practical use for work or friends. My current students mentioned to me that they like that fact that I do not need to rely on books to explain topic in Spanish or to answer any question they might have about the language.
