Studied and worked towards BS. Ed and MA in Spain, Mexico and Italy. Cambridge University certified (Cambridge English Language Teachers of Adults--CELTA). Living in SF,CA and have worked on east coast and midwest teaching and developing study abroad programs and hosting international students. Specializing currently in private, semi private and small group lessons--generally 1 1/2 hours, but have been always very flexible, designing classes for the needs of the student. I work with the students on reading, writing, listening, and speaking proficiency.
I have 30 years teaching middle school, junior high, high school, university, and professional adults with most time in college prep ( Catholic Prep Schools, Boarding Schools, Home Schooling, and tutoring service help) Universities, both abroad and US for ESL, English, Spanish, and Italian.
My rates vary depending on the number of students in the small group. The mentioned rates are for private instruction. Rates can vary, depending on age and frequency.
I highly recommend Lynn Smithers as having top qualifications to teach Spanish and Italian. Ms. Smithers has been a teaching professional for 40 years with an area of expertise specifically in Latin-based languages. Lynn has never stopped learning the nuances of the languages she teaches as she is constantly reading and watching news, TV programs and movies in the languages she teaches. Her years of both teaching and continuing to learn place her in the highest category of expertise, knowledge and skill. Besides in-person classes as permitted, Lynn also offers classes via on-line apps such as Zoom and Skype.
I have been studying Spanish with Lynn for several years now and am always amazed by her broad knowledge of not only the language, but the culture of Spanish-speaking countries, as well. Equally amazing is Lynn's ability to remember material we have discussed, as well as challenges I've had with it, weeks or months after she initially presented. As a "mature" student, those memories often escape me.
While our pre-Covid lessons were in person, Lynn and I have easily moved our sessions onto the Zoom platform, with no loss of consistency. Lynn also teaches English and Italian. She is knowledgable, patient and skilled at teaching language. Lynn is very reliable and reasonably priced.
