I am a certified Spanish teacher, having completed a four year degree in elementary education and languages. I have 14+ years of professional practice and 3 years of private instruction, during which time I have taught students of all backgrounds and ability levels.
I have continued learning because my students allow me to do so by asking me all sorts of questions which I welcome!!
I love the opportunity to meet people from all backgrounds and I specially love when my students progress from not knowing anything to being able to converse in Spanish.
Learning Spanish on your own can be useful when you are starting with the language but it gets to a point where you need to talk with an experienced teacher who will give you a clear lesson plan and will keep you motivated to learn more. We will have a brief conversation during our first session so that I may get to know you a little and understand your needs. From there, I will guide you through a practice that suits your level, and challenge you if you're up for it! As we go with the class, I will provide a lesson plan and explain any grammar issues until you fully comprehend. Then, it will come the speaking portion which is the best part!
Jeanette has been my Spanish tutor for just over a year now and I have enjoyed my classes with her. At first, I lessoned 1 hour a week and then added a second class because she makes it interesting to learn. She is prompt, pleasant, and flexible with my schedule. Jeanette always comes prepared and I have learned a great deal of Spanish. I highly recommend Jeanette!
I started couple of months ago and I’m planning on continuing with Jeannette. She’s extremely patient and professional. I highly recommend her.
Ms. Ortiz is an excellent teacher. She is extremely knowledgable as well as patient and thoughtful. Ms. Ortiz breaks the lessons and words down so you can easily understand and move at a comfortable pace. She also incorporates Spanish speaking and listening throughout the lesson which is most helpful. I would and do highly recommend Ms. Ortiz
