I grew up Bilingual in Madrid, Spain raised by an American mother and a Spanish father. I have tutored English in Spain and been teaching students of all ages here in Spanish for over 6 years. In Addition to teaching, I have been hired on numerous occasions as a dialect coach, translator and live interpreter.
I enjoy seeing the excitement in the student's eyes when they hit a benchmark or when they overcome a lasting obstacle. I enjoy the interactions and how much I learn from my students.
I thoroughly enjoyed my experience working with Danny Silva as my Spanish tutor. Danny is a native speaker from Madrid, Spain. Danny is always prepared with insightful and interesting lessons. His expertise in Spanish allowed me to dramatically improve my Spanish language skills over the past two years. Danny is always prepared with insightful and interesting lessons He is a gifted teacher, dependable and hard working.
Daniel is a fabulous, effective teacher. In a short amount of time, I have gone from a beginning intermediate student to an advanced student. We work on all aspects of the language; speech, grammar, listening, reading and comprehension, and lots of fun slang and idiomatic expressions. I would highly recommend Daniel for anyone seeking to really immerse themselves in Spanish, learn while having fun, and nail their pronunciation like a pro.
It starts with listening to who they are, where they are coming from and how much they know (if any) of the targeted language. I'll sometimes ask additional questions about their hobbies or for instance if they are you more right brained or left brained, and what kind of class environment/pace do they prefer.
I have a Bachelors degree in communication and in drama. I have experience in not only teaching but dialect coaching, translating and interpreting. I've worked in sales, taken numerous acting and improv lessons and come from a family of teachers.
