I study Spanish at an Ivy League university and have been studying it formally since I was 5, including through AP Spanish Language and Literature in late high school. I am a native Spanish speaker as well, and would love to help you or your child in any way I can! I have taught and tutored students ranging from the ages of 5-50.
I love making small differences in people's lives. I know how challenging going through school (and learning a new language) can be, and want to make academic experiences better in any way I can while getting to know my students. I picked up French while in high school, so I am familiar with the tricks that help with all facets of learning new languages!
Kristina was great! All I wanted her for was to practice the development of my spoken Spanish. She was patient, understanding, and helpful!
I get to know the student and their personal goals, and set expectations of what we will both do to work towards achieving them. I do some research if I'm not super familiar with what the student is doing, and off we go!
I have been tutoring for about 5 years, ranging from kids aged 5-college age. I am studying Spanish at an Ivy League university, have spoken spanish since I was born, and was in Spanish immersion starting at the age of 5, completing both levels of AP spanish (language and literature).
Typically, I charge $40 per hour, and this includes prep before class as well as a follow-up after class.
Make sure your tutor is someone who you think you will get along with!
Think about the teacher's experience and your needs, and how they match up.
