I learned French from my father, between birth and 4 years of age and Spanish from my aunt, between three and 11. I took French and Spanish all through school, with a double major in French and Spanish in College (Hunter). I received my M.A. in French from Stanford University, my M.A. in Spanish from Stanford University, and my M.A. and Ph.D. in French from Princeton University.
My teaching methodology is not traditional in nature. I use songs, actions, visuals, and drawings to help students master concepts and to recall vocabulary. I believe that we need lots of different types of information presentation and practice in order to acquire new information. I use humor and I have a relaxed style.
Over the years I have experienced just about every way there is to learn and improve my Spanish. Countless worksheets, exercises and flashcards helped with certain parts of my language abilities, but seemed to neglect others. I work by creating a lesson plan that takes the most useful parts of those methods, and incorporates them into a quick and easy warm up for the day.
I focus on conversational and oral expression but also can help improve your reading comprehension. I will help you loosen up and get rid of your shyness and start speaking, boosting your confidence. I believe in learning by doing, and there is no better way to learn a language than start speaking it since minute one.
I am very punctual, organized, and easygoing. I find that communication is the key to success, because without it the message one is trying to get across will never reach its intended target. I like to start things out with getting an understanding of the student's knowledge and what their goals are.
I'm a Spanish native speaker from Colombia. I have experience teaching adults. For 12 years, I taught medical and nursing students, medical Spanish and conversational Spanish. I believe that a very essential part of learning a new language, is to learn about the culture in this case from South America.
I have strong knowledge about different methods and approaches to learn a foreign language. I adapt my lessons to the students´s needs, focusing on speaking and listening. I try to give entertaining lessons, helping students to feel relaxed and have no fear of speaking.
My teaching methodology is based on the Berlitz system, because I have taught with them for many years. I like to give my students live-practical examples and everything is done in either Spanish or English, depending on the language I am teaching.
I am currently a college student who is pursuing her Bachelor's degree in Secondary Education to teach ESL and Spanish. As an experienced volunteer teacher who taught ESL in Mexico for five years, I learned to be very patient with second language learners and am able to encourage them and motivate them.
I primarily teach elementary Spanish, but I have taught intermediate Spanish privately. I have also taught elementary age children as well. I believe in an equal balance between oral & written proficiency. In my classes, we do oral exercises every day, as well as traditional writing exercises. I always ask my students questions to be certain that they understand the material.
I am a native of Tucson who acquired a foundation in Spanish at home, High School and the University of Arizona. I have taught Spanish in Middle School, High School and to adults. I would promote knowledge of the alphabet and phonemic awareness, spelling, reading practice for accuracy and fluency, and composition. I use teacher designed lessons to accommodate each students needs.
I am from Spain so I can help you with your Spanish. I have a PhD in molecular genetics and a degree in Environmental Science. I have also taught Math in Middle School.
I base my teaching on my experience, the basics, and having a correct conversation and a daily basis. We continue to the next step of reading and writing and correct grammar. Feel Free to contact me via email or through my profile.
I love personalized teaching, one on one. That helps the teacher to identify needs, strengths, a better understanding of the student and his/her circumstances, goals and so forth. Based on that I choose a technic to approach themes while we are learning the use of correct grammar, orthography, comprehension and structures of Spanish.
My methodology, is based mainly on a communicative approach, where you will begin to speak from the first class. Through dialogues, games, songs, videos, and images you will learn grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation. The classes are personalized, tailored to every student's specific needs.
I am from Peru. English is my second language. I have lived in the United States for 2 years. My first job was Spanish teacher at Sweetwater Montessori School in New Bern, NC. Then, I worked in a Childcare as Spanish teacher too. I am working with kids in a Childcare as a Program Assistant. I love my job. I have a bachelor degree in psychology.
I teach using different and also the last methologies on language teaching and learning: Task-based language teaching and critical learning approaches that allow my students to learn the most with significant lessons. I adapt my methodologies depending on my students' needs and interests.
As a tutor, I like to connect with students in order to be able to keep them engaged in the lesson plan that I will prepare personally for them based on their likes and hobbies, as well as their personality.
If you're looking to practice conversational Spanish with someone who has extensive knowledge and experience in the Spanish culture as well as language teaching, I'm the tutor for you!

Is learning Spanish frustrating/scary? I say- it's time to "DEJAR LOS EGOS AFUERA" or check your ego at the door. As your instructor or tutor, my focus is to identify your weaknesses in order to prepare and execute lessons or activities that will improve your abilities in a judgement-free learning environment.
I believe that language learning is best when both practical and fun. Genuine, spontaneous communication in realistic scenarios is the key. Within the flexibility allowed by the curriculum, topics of discussion will be tailored to students' interests while also including cultural and historical information.
I am a student learning and speaking Spanish. I teach Spanish from to all levels (beginning, intermediate, advanced, etc.). I teach writing reading and speaking using interactive techniques by teaching material then answering questions a student might have. This way, students are able to get answers and help on tehethings they need most.
All ages welcome! My teaching style will help you gain language naturally. I value the "learning by doing" method. We will mostly communicate in the target language. Conversations will encompass various everyday topics and subjects to diversify your language input.
I will make you work! But, we can have a little fun along the way as well - as you prefer. My classes are entirely tailored to your needs, interests, level, and learning style. My classes are structured and comprehensive: at different times we will focus on progressively strengthening grammar structures, building vocabulary, building fluency, comprehension, and more.
Repetition is the mother of all learning. I chose this methodology because it emphasizes drill work in order to make answers to questions instinctive and automatic. New forms are first heard by students, with written forms coming only after extensive drilling. The language used for these drills is based on what is required for practicing the specific form; it might or might not be natural.
My teaching method is to keep the end goal in mind and build the tutoring around the students levels of language proficiency from beginning to more advanced. I base my sessions on the specific needs of each student to build their confidence and esteem.
I have been teaching English as a second language for 12 years at the adult school and college level. I like to expose students to different learning styles and offer a positive and healthy environment for students to learn and grow.
my approach to teaching language focuses on improving the student's ability to communicate in Spanish. Each session includes vocabulary, grammar and lots of oral practice, you will notice that you will progress quickly in the Spanish language.
Each student approaches foreign language education with their own jumble of motivations, skills, interests and personal experiences. Some will have a natural ear for language while others will struggle.
I believe that learning should be fun and applicable to situations we come across in our daily lives. My goal as a tutor is to both help my students excel academically, and prepare them for any situations in their personal and future professional lives where they could need to apply their Spanish skills.
