« I originally used Profe Karen as a tutor to prep for a Spanish college exam, and all I can say is that I am so glad I found her. She is very patient and really takes the time to explain how things work. It also shows that she’s been a teacher for a while because she just knows how to lay it out clearly, and she is always capable of answering all of my random questions. Overall, I gained a lot of confidence with Karen, and I highly recommend her. »

Experienced Middlebury Spanish Language School graduate offering tutoring in Sherman Oaks and surrounding area to students of all ages.

Methodology

I enjoy all aspects of language teaching and have an eclectic and organic style. I mix my approaches up to suit each individual's needs. I have found that my students have been most successful if their learning is done in a context that carries some personal importance to them.

Background

I have had a long and successful career teaching students at all levels of Spanish. I acquired near-native fluency while living in Peru for four years after my undergraduate degree. I went on to study the Spanish language and completed an MA with Middlebury College while in Madrid, Spain.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : $45/h

Details

I charge more for advanced level classes. However, I am always open to negotiation. Additionally, students often find that they need more than a 60 minute session. When this is the case, I charge $80.00 (a $5.00 savings) for a 120 minutes session.
