I took Spanish for five years, from 7th-11th, and then forgot most of it. After a year of working with Sara, my Spanish was waaay better than it had ever been, and after almost two years, my Spanish was good enough to travel to Mexico on my own! Now I watch movies in Spanish, read novels (slowly, haha), and, most importantly for me, can work and build real relationships in Spanish with the community members who are a big part of my job. Thank you, thank you!
With a new student, I always make sure I get to know their current level, learning style and short-term and long-term goals.
All of the following help make me a qualified Spanish tutor: the fact that I am a native speaker from Mexico, my years of experience as an educator for students of many different ages, and certification as a language teacher from City College of San Francisco.
My normal rate for private online classes is $30/hour, but I offer discounts if students want to buy multiple lessons as a package.
I also work with small groups (2-3 students) and charge $20/hour for each student.
I started out helping friends who were interested in learning Spanish, and I loved the process of sharing my language so much that I decided to make a career out of it.
I have experience working with students of all levels – from elementary school kids with no previous Spanish exposure, to college students in advanced literature courses.
Don't be afraid to shop around! All students are capable of new language acquisition, but there are tutoring styles that work better for some students than they do for others. Try out a few teachers until you find something that really works.
Once you've found that, be sure to practice. Lessons work best when they are combined with plenty of immersive exposure.
