DAVID IS AN OUTSTANDING TEACHER IN EVERY RESPECT. HIS KNOWLEDGE OF SPANISH SEEMS EXCELLENT, AND HIS INTEREST IN THIS LANGUAGE IS CLEARLY VERY STRONG. THIS ALLOWS CLOSE ANALYSIS OF SPANISH, AND STANDS AS A SIGNIFICANT BENEFIT TO THE DIDACTIC PROCESS. IN TURN THIS PROMOTES A SPIRIT OF LEARNING IN CLASS WHICH IS INFORMATIVE AND GOOD FUN. FINALLY HIS KNOWLEDGE OF SPANISH/ENGLISH COGNATES AND INDO-EUROPEAN ROOTS IS UNUSUALLY BROAD, WHICH MAKES LEARNING SPANISH WITH HIM EASY AND ENTERTAINING. I BELIEVE DAVID HAS A TRUE VOCATION FOR TEACHING, AND I HOPE I CAN GO ON WITH LESSONS WITH HIM FOR SOME TIME TO COME.

I have taught ESL or English Second Language to all ages from toddlers to older adults. Classrooms full of teenagers. I really enjoy it and teach in a way that other teachers would never dream of. My approach is casual and pleasurable.

About Bryce

Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn. -Ben Franklin

An investment in knowledge pays the best interest. - Ben Franklin

The unconventional method of teaching begins here

I am a Spanish Language Consultant

I am a concierge tutor meaning that I make every meeting personalized for you. Everyone learns a language differently. For some they just want to speak. For others they want to learn to read or write. And some want to do it all. Either way I will do everything in my power to assure that happens.

Where did I learn Spanish?
I took it in high school like all of us and failed out in the second year. Then seven years later I took a class in Bellevue College and got the best grade in the class. Soon after the class finished I moved to Bogotá, Colombia for a year and half where I really improved

my level to near native status. When I was a kid in high school I did not see how cool it is to be able to speak another language nor did I care. However, now it was a defining point in my life and something that no one can take away from me.

My schedule is also very flexible giving you plenty of freedom over when to meet.

I am connected to a network of native speakers who are all my very close friends who can be included in the sessions when the time is right or whenever you may like.

I have been a Spanish Consultant since 2011 and love doing it. I really get fired up when students begin to take off on their own with the language with less and less of my help.

I don't think you will find a more passionate tutor.

Students who will succeed with me can be of any age but should have these traits if they wish to excel:
Discipline
Not afraid to make mistakes
Positive attitudes
Open mind
Willingness to think outside of the box

Thank you and have a beautiful day now

As a multilingual person who has lived, studied and worked in more than 30 countries across six continents around the world, I have a deep understanding and appreciation of what it takes to learn a new language and successfully transition one’s life and work to another culture and country.

I’ve learned three other languages myself, and taught English as a Second Language for both conversational and professional purposes to students and adults in and from multiple countries, including: Japan, China, Korea, Germany, Spain, Italy, Mexico, Honduras, Nicaragua & Costa Rica.

I also provide cross-cultural training to ease the integration process for your whole family, with empathy, cultural sensitivity and understanding.

With a bilingual MBA from IESE in International Business, I also teach English for successful business negotiations, and organizational culture change to realize the strategic goals of mergers.

So whether you want to gain confidence and ease in daily ...

Bgcheck Background Checked


Private ESL Teacher

I am a native English and Spanish speaker having lived half of my life in the Dominican Republic and half in the United States. My desire is to help you meet your goals and customize the lessons to your needs. I desire to make learning English more enjoyable. I understand what it is like to learn another language. I take a slow, encouraging and motivational approach with my students. I enjoy teaching, connecting with my students and helping them learn. I believe that conversation is a key component to listening, verbal and comprehension skills. I am a good communicator and find it enjoyable to relate to people of other cultural backgrounds. I work well with children, youth and students of all ages.

About Landon

I am a native speaker of both Spanish and English. My father speaks to me in Spanish and my mother speaks to me in English. I lived in four countries growing up so I have developed multicultural awareness and a passion for learning. I have taught special needs students with a hands-on approach to understanding every student's learning style. I have tutored in both Spanish and English and I love to empower students to achieve their learning goals. I believe in developing conversation skills by helping the student to develop a topic of dialog in a safe environment where it is OK to make mistakes! I love to laugh and make learning fun!

Tiene excelente manejo del idioma, muestra mucho interés y preocupación por el crecimiento de sus alumnos, además de que utiliza muy buenas técnicas de enseñanza.
Una de mis debilidades era la falta de confianza para comunicarme delante de otras personas, si embargo; gracias a él pude superarlo y puedo entablar una conversación con excelente fluidez.

Although English is my first language, I grew up with foreign parents myself and their first language is not English, so I understand what it's like for them. I just want to help make other students comfortable with the English language in all settings; whether it's conversational, learning at school, or whatever the case may be!

About Jennifer

I'm Jennifer Nwa, and I'm a college student in my final year of undergrad. I'm a psychology major so minds are the most interesting to me! I also love teaching, I currently teach young children at a child development center. My teaching style is pretty straight-forward: make it fun and relatable! I love to learn and I have always learned best when it is enjoyable and relates to my everyday life so I teach the same way!

Bgcheck Background Checked


Private ESL Teacher

My experience in and passion for teaching English help to make me an excellent teacher. I have a Master's degree (MEd) in TESOL (Teaching English as a Second Language) as well as over 4 years teaching English in Intensive English programs in local colleges. In addition, I recently completed two years teaching English overseas.
I am very interested in getting to know you. I will speak slowly if you are a beginner and I will help you with your answers. I will provide vocabulary for you to learn and help you with pronunciation as well. I am so excited to work with you!

About Anne

You've probably already seen that I have a Master's degree in teaching English and more than 6 years experience teaching students from all around the world, but that doesn't explain why I chose this career. The reason is that I love to teach English. I like to make my students comfortable and to have a good time in class.

I know very well that it's hard to speak in a language that you are learning because you don't want to make mistakes. But those mistakes are important because that is the way we learn - by making mistakes and learning how to say it better.

You don't need to think of things to talk about. I will ask you questions that you understand so that you can practice speaking English and I will give you all the help you need to answer my questions. I will speak so that you understand me - slowly and clearly. It will be fun -

I promise.
