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.

About Jason N.
¡Hola! ¡Bienvenido! Hello and Welcome!

my name's Jason and I love Spanish and Latin America.

I'm currently a doctoral student. I majored in Spanish at University of California, 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.

My goal is to tailor the lessons to what best helps you learn. 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 in Spanish but want to prefect their knowledge of proverbs
, sayings, jokes, cultural aspects of Spanish, grammar, vocabulary, conjugation, listening and overall language skills. That said, I can work with anyone at any level of Spanish, and have experiences with students from ages 5 to 67.

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.

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 studied Spanish and lived in Ecuador for a year where I volunteered at a school and edited a Spanish textbook. I can help beginning and intermediate students with speaking, reading, writing and grammar. I promise to make your Spanish classes interesting and fun. If you would like to study Spanish literature or film we can incorporate those into our lessons. I love the Spanish language and would be happy to help you achieve Spanish proficiency while cultivating a love for the language. I offer a free consultation to discuss Spanish lessons.

About Marie
I have been an educator for more than ten years. In that time, I've taught and tutored English, Language Arts and Spanish to students from elementary to PhD level. I also help students study for the SAT, ACT and TOEFL tests and coach students through the college and graduate school application process. I love teaching and learning. I am patient, enthusiastic and dedicated to my students.

My teaching philosophy can be summed up in a few words : learning should be fascinating, individualized and fun. Helen Keller said, “ A well-educated mind will always have more questions than answers.” My goal is to help my students ask the questions that will lead them to deeper understanding. The poet Mark Van Doreen said, “The art of teaching is the art of assisting discovery.” In our lessons, I will help you make discoveries that will inspire you
to keep learning.

When I’m not teaching, I love reading, exploring the California coast, writing poetry and singing loudly.

My lessons are dynamic, entertaining and full of fun activities. My first language is Spanish and I have been working in the school system for around 14 years out of the country and in USA.

About Ahmed
Hi, my name is Ahmed I. I was born in Cuba and I used to live there until my family and I moved to USA in 2015. Back in Cuba I had the opportunity to teach in Middle School for almost 10 years. During these years I taught Spanish and Math. Once I moved to this magnificent country I start my studies to become an Elementary Teacher in the Ana G Mendez System, and right now I’m completing my last courses to become a Bilingual Elementary Education Teacher.

In addition, I want to say that have a deep passion for teaching and I also love to help others through the process off learning. I am willing to go with you during your success and mistakes, and I will be always ready to help you. If you are trying to learn Spanish as a second language believe me, Spanish is my first language and I passed 32 years of my live speaking Spanish only. Further
more 10 of those years was dedicated to teach Spanish for teenagers students. However, if your goal is to help your kids to learn some Math I have a great combination of teaching experience and knowledge of a second language. This combination can be an awesome advantage for Students who are English Language Learners.

Now I work for the Hillsborough County Public School as a Bilingual Assistant and I love what I do. I hope you like my Biographical information and I am looking forward to meeting you. I used to be a Math Middle School Teacher for 10 years and I have been helping Bilingual Students with Math subject for more than three years in the Hillsborough County Public School.

Spanish is my first language and was my only language until I become 32 years old, so I am very fluent. In addition, I was a Math and Spanish teacher in a Middle School for 10 years in Cuba.

I am so excited to know you and help you during your learning process. I know we are going to have such a great time and laughs as we work together. I hope you choose me as your Tutor and I will be very pleased to meet you. Have a bless day.
