Evelyne K.

Henrico, VA

(22)

Bgcheck Background Checked


Being born and raised in Geneva, the French-speaking part of Switzerland, French is my mother tongue. With a Swiss degree of pediatric nursing and teaching, I worked more than 15 years with children, families and adult students. Finding the best way to learn depending on who you are and what goals you have is one of my specialties. I like to provide a dynamic and a fun learning environment.
Having learnt as multiple second languages, such as English, Italian, Spanish and German, I’m very aware of the process of learning a new language.
I can provide vocabulary, grammar, verbs, conversation as well as cultural aspects from different French speaking countries, as I was working with people from France and I spent 3 years in Montreal, Quebec.
I moved to Richmond two years ago, bringing many French books for all ages, that could be used during lessons.

Today was my first lesson. Evelyne is very relaxed and immediately helped me to feel relaxed. She quickly chose a starting point that met my skill level.
I am already looking forward to my second lesson.

Do you want to learn to speak one of the most important languages in the world? There are approximately 480 million native level Spanish speakers in the world today, therefore, learning Spanish can open you up to a world of new possibilities. I have experience teaching Spanish to people of all ages ranging from beginner to advanced levels. I use a very communicative approach when teaching because I think that is the best way to stimulate the mind for language learning.

I love talking with people about a wide range of subjects which means there will never be a dull moment in one of my classes. I'm very flexible with my lessons and my classes can be adapted to my student's needs whether they are preparing for an exam, learning Spanish for fun, or trying to better there communication skills. I'm also available for strictly conversational classes for more advanced students who would like to work on their pronunciation and fluency. I can create custom packages that will accommodate your

This was my first lesson with Jorge and I was very impressed with his teaching ability. I have a good knowledge of Spanish from my childhood days in Chile and was seeking to refresh my Spanish capability. He was very encouraging and had some excellent ideas as to how we can best proceed. I am looking forward to continuing lessons with Jorge Fiero!

Jorge is one of the best teachers that I've ever worked with. He is great at explaining topics in a way that is very easy to understand. His classes are always fun as he always has topics to talk about that catch your interest. I had multiple Spanish teachers before Jorge and I learned more with Jorge in a matter of a few months than I did with any of the other teachers combined over 2 years. I would highly recommend Jorge to anyone looking to learn Spanish whether you are a beginner or more advanced.

Quick view profile

I majored in Spanish at UC Davis, lived in Mexico for 3 years where I completed a Master's degree in Counseling, studied Spanish Literature and Psychology at the University of Costa Rica for 7 months and have traveled around a few other Latin American Countries.

I can do conversation classes and academic ones too. I have a lot of material and activities to facilitate fun learning. My command of the language is almost native. I prefer to work with those who really want to learn, just so we both use our time wisely. I work best with those who already have a base on Spanish but want to prefect their grammar, vocabulary, conjugation, listening and overall language skills.

*** Specialties ***
-Spanish conjugation
-Spanish vocabulary
-Spanish grammar
-Spanish conversation/pronunciation

Jason inspired me to have a break-through with my Spanish. As a nurse with many Hispanic patients, after only 3 classes with Jason, I successfully triage'd a patient using almost all Spanish. I was pretty stoked about the whole thing. It was a really good confidence boost to not only use it and be understood by the lady, but I understood her too. Not every little word, mind you, but I was able to pick out a lot of the context and figure out what was going on. Working with Jason makes me feel like I'm opening up a whole new avenue in my practice, even after 15 years of repetition. I have Jason to thank for this and it's just boosted me towards learning more.

Jason is a quality Spanish teacher. Not only does he have a native command of the language (as verified by my Latino co-worker), but Jason is also a skilled language instructor. Two attributes of Jason that I particularly value are his attention to detail and the way he highlights language patterns to facilitate learning. It is evident that Jason has a huge passion for teaching Spanish.

Bgcheck Background Checked


How you communicate is especially important in business, professional and social situations. 'Not that speaking English like an American is the end all, be all, but it can assist you in communicating your ideas without being misunderstood or as rapidly as possible. Everyone can speak English with clear and proper pronunciation, I can give you the tips and tricks to assist you in excelling. My background with singing required that I learn the 'IPA' or International Phonetic Alphabet. This training has assisted me in learning ways in which to decipher the spoken word (as well as singing in various languages). My background in teaching English has also prepared me to understand various idioms, cliches', jargon, slang and euphemisms. My students in accent reduction will find that I have a wellspring of information and methods for reducing an accent. In working together via our private lessons, you will have practice becoming more fluent in your conversational speech. You will learn how to

Great teacher on my son's 1st ear training looking forward on future lessons with her.

My son has been working with Mrs Marty for a month now and he has shown exceptional growth. He is a high functioning autistic boy who can be non verbal and jittery at time. Marty is patient with him and when they play the piano together it has become an outlet of expression for my son. I do not play and so I am so grateful to Marty for all the hard work she puts in to help my son find an avenue of expression. She puts together personalized binders that my son loves to have to sit at practice his “homework” lesson Marty gave him for the week. The binder has served as a wonderful point of reference for not only my son but for me to understand basic piano techniques so that I may also help my son and understand what he is learning. We would recommend Marty to anyone who has an interest in learning piano!

We scheduled online for a particular day and time that was available on her schedule, yet every single class day I received multiple texts requesting for us to reschedule and then reschedule the rescheduled times. The last class time she texted to cancel very close to the class time.
Our first lesson we sat and waited for her to assemble a lesson notebook that she charged us $15 for. She had to print papers and her computer / printer wasn't working very well. I would think this would have been prepared before hand, not during the lesson time. $15 for what we received is pretty steep.
She committed to sending exercises after the lessons a couple of times that were not sent for several days. She had forgotten and was out of town once and would not be returning for several days.
I felt there was a lack of preparedness and professionalism and respect for our time.
