About this tutor

I want to help students achieve their goals of learning Spanish! I want to make learning student-focused and fun! I have been studying Spanish for four years, and I still learn something new every time. I love learning new languages and teaching languages to people. I am currently learning French and Russian as well. I also have a certification in TESOL/TEFL. I know that learning a new language can be difficult, but I know how rewarding it can be. I am very patient and will be there to help you every step of the way, and I make myself available whenever you need help. 

What I enjoy about the work I do is I love helping people learn something new and something that can benefit them for the rest of their lives. I love working with people and learning about them and their interests and I apply those when teaching in order for the student to relate and learn more.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

When I work with a new student I like to know what they want to learn. Do they want to learn vocabulary, grammar, speaking, reading, writing, or listening skills? I want the student to talk as much as possible in the language and I want to make sure they never feel embarrassed when they make a mistake. I try to be creative with lessons so I try to incorporate games, videos, and pictures. 


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have taken Spanish for three years in high school. I am now a Junior in college and throughout my college years I have been practicing my Spanish and learning more. I am currently reading a book that teaches a ton of grammar, sentence structure, and vocabulary. Teaching wise I have taken TESOL/TEFL courses which have taught me how to teach a language to students in an effective and creative way. I took courses in teaching youth, adults, large classes, methodology, as well as telephone/online classes. 


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I charge $10 per lesson and I offer a trial lesson for $5. 


How did you get started teaching?

I started getting into teaching when I was a sophomore in high school. I specifically wanted to teach English as a second language. In order to feel like I was able to teach someone a new language I wanted to make sure I knew what it was like to be in their shoes so I ended up not only taking three courses in Spanish, but also teaching myself French and Russian. 


What types of students have you worked with?

I have not worked with anyone yet since I just got certified to teach and I did not have the confidence in myself before to teach, but throughout this past year I have gained a lot of confidence and am ready to teach. 


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Make sure the teacher is doing the lesson in a way that benefits you. If you are a visual learner make sure the teacher incorporates visuals in their lesson. Some teachers may not fit the style of learning you are wanting. 


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What do I want to learn? 

What are your goals?

What am I interested in?
