¡Saludos! Me llamo Kelly …
Ready to upgrade your Spanish language skills? I teach customized, private and semi-private classes to people who want to speak Spanish like a native speaker.
I have a deep appreciation for what you’re going through on your journey to master Spanish. My own love affair with Spanish began in middle school. After many years of regular language classes, I finally achieved fluency by studying and living in Costa Rica and Spain. I’ve learned firsthand what doesn’t really work in traditional language instruction, and I’ve also experienced the personal breakthroughs YOU’LL need to have to overcome your fear of speaking Spanish in public. I offer a real world approach to learning that will allow you to discover yourself as a Spanish speaker.
Here's a snapshot at what private tutoring looks like with me:
Private tutoring in Spanish is available online via Skype, whether you are taking one of my courses, are enrolled in another Spanish course, or are going on a business trip in a month and want daily private instruction to increase your language skills at a rapid pace.
Your first private tutoring session will be an hour long, which will allow me to determine your level and the skill areas you need to work on most. To allow for maximum benefit, your private tutoring sessions can be recorded and sent to you for review and self-study at no additional charge.
Over the last 10 years I’ve taught Spanish to people of all ages, levels and backgrounds. While I loved teaching at San Francisco State University during my Master’s program in Spanish and Latin American literature, I’ve realized that many people need tailored language training that the classroom setting doesn’t provide.
I’m also a Personal Performance Coach, and I incorporate my coaching expertise into my custom language programs as needed, to ensure that my clients really do achieve the results they want.
Check out below a few reviews I have received from my students:
“When I began studying Spanish with Kelly, I was very frustrated at my low skill level. I doubted whether learning this new skill at an older age was even possible. But her constant encouragement has kept me engaged. Kelly has a genuine passion for teaching Spanish–and for life in general. Seeing others learn delights her, and as a student that feels incredible. Many teachers are burnt out or just doing it for the money. Kelly genuinely cares about her students’ results and she pushes us to push ourselves. The fact that she is not a native speaker gives me confidence that I can also be fluent one day!
–Cathryn Moothart, former student
“In five years of Spanish classes, Kelly Campbell was my most influential teacher. Her passion for teaching Spanish was nothing short of amazing. I have always wanted to be able to communicate with the Puerto Rican side of my family, and my thirst to learn Spanish was something Kelly took seriously. Her teaching style was fun and engaging, and her presence was always energetic, happy, and thoughtful. Learning Spanish is an intimidating task, but Kelly encouraged all questions and created a comfortable atmosphere. Her charisma and eagerness to teach is something other educators can surely learn from.”
–Mariah Santiago, former student
“Prior to taking Kelly’s class, my Spanish abilities were very rusty. After a semester with Kelly, who was very patient with her students and very knowledgeable of the subject, I noticed a big difference in my ability to read, write and understand Spanish. I would definitely recommend Kelly to students who are serious about brushing up on their Spanish, or even to a beginner who wants to learn a second language.“
