About this pro

My name is Chantalle. I am a professional ESL and Spanish tutor with over 8 years of hand-on experience. I was born in Denver, Colorado. From an early age I received a bilingual education and after high school I studied Modern Languages in the Metropolitan University of Caracas, Venezuela to be a translator. I am very passionate about education; there is always something new we can learn to enrich our knowledge. What I love the most about teaching is how much we learn from our students.

I was raised in Caracas, Venezuela where I learned how to speak Spanish, I instantly fell in love with the this beautiful and romantic language. Its wide Vocabulary enables speakers to express themselves in a detailed and explicit manner. It is considered the second-most spoken language in the world after Mandarin Chinese. By learning Spanish you will have the chance to get to know hundreds of different cultures. 

I have taught private ESL lessons since I was 18 years old. I am constantly improving my teaching methods using audio-visual, interactive and creative techniques depending on the level, interests and unique needs of each student. I have had the opportunity of instructing a wide variety of students from different backgrounds and different age ranges.

I create a positive and supportive environment that will engage students and encourage them to stay focused and motivated but at the same time remain appropriately challenged. I am reliable, responsible and very dedicated to the learning process of each individual. Feel free to contact me with any additional questions or to schedule a lesson!

Our first scheduled lesson is usually to identify the student's interests, needs and level. Depending on those factors we determine what area we need to focus on more and which methods or techniques will be most effective.

I've had a bilingual education from an early age, I was born in Denver, Colorado and raised in Caracas, Venezuela; I also lived three years in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I studied Modern Languages in the Universidad Metropolitana in Caracas, Venezuela to be a translator.  


How did you get started teaching?

Since I was 17 years old I started tutoring elementary school kids for their English finals. I now have 10 years of experience teaching English as a Second Language and Spanish.

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

Education methods are growing and expanding everyday, so I would try to find a teacher who is willing to help you achieve your personal goals rather than someone that uses the same cookie cutter for all students.


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

What are your specific goals?

What areas interest you the most?

What motivates you to improve your skills?
