I am a fluent Spanish tutor. I excel and have made a living full time for the past 10 years as a private tutor, due to my excitement for the job and for the client: you! I absolutely love teaching Spanish and figuring out what works best for you, since every client is completely different. I call to discuss before the first class so every minute in class is focused on building fluency and working towards your goals. I always make sure to customize the class for you. Whether you need to be fluent or you need to pass a specific test, I work extremely hard to ensure all goals are met. I make high school Spanish seem very easy with my way of explaining.

I am very professional, punctual, creative and smiling always.

About Micah
I have been a full time private English instructor since 2008, and I've had my global language training company (over 100 instructors) since 2014. I take on private students here, exclusively with take lessons, because it's important to always be teaching and creating more modern curriculum for real progress in fluency. I know what it takes to get fluent, because I've acquired Spanish, French and Japanese as an adult. I know you can improve and teach your goals just as I have.

I always call clients before the first class to extensively discuss your goals. I have a specific form we full out together for every 3 months of progress. I have researched this, and it's the most effective way to improve.

I work primarily with professionals who need to improve American English language skills and/ or accent for those working in the United
States or working with Americans. Also, I can get English speakers to a high level of fluency in Spanish.

This includes, slang, idioms, phrasal verbs, professional email writing, presentations, American culture, accent/pronunciation and more.

I have created The Bellieu Method, which is a specific way to learn languages, which is the most effective for acquiring a language.

I always use RELEVANT articles to read, TV shows to watch, books to read, radio shows to listen to, in order to incorporate English as much as possible in every aspect of the student's life.

This is how we learn our first language, so why would we try to learn our second language in a different way? Second language researchers have been saying for decades that grammar- focused lessons don't work, yet our schools continue to focus on this. You want to be FLUENT, right? Writing is easy after that.

I have had contracts with Hitachi, NTT Data, Intel, Amazon, Google, American Airlines, Southwest Airlines, Samsung, Ferrovial, Webber, Bluebonnet, Austin Bridges and Roads, North Tarrant Infrastructure, Trinity, Mary Kay International, and many, many more international companies.

How I teach: I create customized classes for you. I teach you to SPEAK the language. Lessons are dynamic, fun and give you confidence, incorporating things you like: TV, radio, music, movies, current events, and much more.

One-on-one, small groups, company-wide programs, online, in person.

I have spent four years studying Spanish in academic settings and have traveled extensively to Latin America, learning Spanish on the way. I have a wide vocabulary and a thorough understanding of grammar.

About Michael
I am a classically trained and professional musician who has worn many different musical hats over the years. I began playing drums when I was 14, in Houston, TX with Craig LeMay, and since then I have learned many different string and world instruments. I studied music theory and vocal performance at the Florence University of the Arts in Italy, taken sitar lessons from Mita Nag in Kolkatta, India, and jazz performance in Austin, TX with Joey Colarusso. I have played in many different bands over the years, such as accompanying Michael Kiwanuka with the musical saw, accompanying Katie Sachs with the musical saw, playing bass guitar with Halaska and DJing private events with Spacecraft Entertainment. I have been teaching music to special education students, in Austin public schools, and foster children with Kids in a New Groove. I have als
o built and modified many of my own instruments and ready to teach you some quirky musical production skills as well. I believe listening and being adaptable to an individual student's needs are the keys to teaching anyone to express themselves through music.

After studying Spanish for 2 years at the university level and extensive travel to Latin America I am fluent in Spanish in both the academic and conversational sides of the language.

Michael was an excellent teacher. Very relaxed, patient and understanding. He taught me a combination of songs and some music theory that was reasonably challenging to practice at home.

If I could give ZERO stars, I would!
This instructor stood me up.
I showed up at his home for our first lesson only to find out that he wasn't there.
I've also contacted "takelessons.com", but have had no response from them either!

CAVEAT EMPTOR!

Michael is doing a great job getting me started on my piano journey. The exercises and drills he is teaching me have helped me feel comfortable at the keyboard. I've even learned a song already, after just 2 lessons!

Highly recommended.

Want to learn a new language? How about learning Spanish ? It doesn't matter if you know anything about it. I can teach you at any level and you will become an excellent speaker and writer. I'm from Venezuela and Spanish is my mother language. I have 5 years of experience teaching.

About María
Hello!! I'm Maria Fernanda

I am a business administrator and I currently live in Madrid Spain where I am doing a Master in Business Analytics and Strategic Data.

In my spare time I love teaching English(basic and intermediate level) and Spanish(all levels).
My teaching method is always depending on the student interest. Generally I try to do it the most fun, interesting and entertaining possible.
I have a special rule: no other language allow in class(just Spanish or English depending on what language I'm teaching). I believe that the most efficient way to start learning a new language is to think, listen and speak just in that language. Of course I could be flexible if the student doesn't speak that new language at all.
In my hometown (Venezuela) I had experience teaching basic English in an elementary school and teaching priv
et lessons for kids and teenagers as well.

Let me know if you are interested in taking classes with me.
Don't lose the opportunity to learn Spanish with a native speaker!

¡¡Hola!! Soy María Fernanda, soy administradora de empresas y actualmente vivo en Madrid, España en donde me encuentro cursando un Master en Business Analytics and Strategic Data. En mi tiempo libre me encanta enseñar inglés (nivel básico e intermedio) y español (todos los niveles).
Mi método de enseñanza depende siempre del interés del estudiante. Generalmente trato de hacerlo de la manera más divertida, interesante y entretenida posible.
Tengo una regla especial: ningún otro idioma se permite en clase (sólo español o inglés dependiendo del idioma que estoy enseñando). Creo que la manera más eficiente de comenzar a aprender un nuevo idioma es pensar, escuchar y hablar solo en ese idioma. Por supuesto, podría ser flexible si el alumno no habla ese idioma nuevo en absoluto.
En mi país natal (Venezuela) tuve experiencia enseñando inglés básico en una escuela primaria y también dando clases particulares a niños y adolescentes.

Avísame si estás interesado en tomar clases conmigo.
¡No pierdas la oportunidad de aprender inglés y comunicarte en cualquier lugar del mundo!

I have a bachelor's degree in Spanish and lived in Spain for eight years. I teach reading, composition, pronunciation, grammar, and conversation based on reading. I can combine all these into one if you wish. I have a deep, innate understanding of how language works and can explain things in ways other teachers might not be able to. I love Spanish and will convey that to you as well. I accept middle-school, high-school, and college students as well as adult learners.

About David
I'm patient, intelligent, understanding, and kind. I won't judge you for your level of Spanish. My only concern is that you enjoy the lessons and learn. Please send me any professional questions. Thank you.
