I speak fluent Spanish and English. I spent a year abroad in Spain during my junior year in college. Before that, I studied in both high school and college studying advanced Spanish. I am able to converse with any dialect in Spanish, no matter where the person comes from.
I want to help people learn Spanish and be able to converse with one another effectively & confidently. I enjoy helping learn Spanish, and be able to get comfortable speaking at Level I (travelling purposes), and Level II (social situations); and lastly, Level III (job opportunities).
I was very impressed with Sean's knowledge of Spanish, and his ability to adapt to my learning style. He was never impatient, and was also very flexible around my schedule. I was very satisfied.
I like to ask them their background: if it's for the first time, or simply just to brush up on their skills.
-Lived a year in Spain during my junior year in college in an immersion program
-Taught in the Boston area high school Spanish
-Held demanding jobs in the Boston medical community to help the Latino population
-Graduated from Graduate School and earned my Teacher's Certification
My fee is $40 per 1 hour session. The cancellation fee will be $10 if I'm given only an hour's notice.
I did my student teaching during Graduate School, and then taught FT in a local HS.
Both high school students and adults.
When I start speaking Spanish, no matter the population, I still get a reaction of surprise when they realize that I speak as well as they do! This happens in both social & professional settings.
I've been told that I'm tough, but patient!
-The amount of time they want to devote in order to grasp Spanish
-What is the individual's goal to learn a new skill?
