The Best Ivy League Spanish Tutor with a Yale PhD for all Levels

Methodology

Through personalized teaching system and advanced methodologies, I make sure that my clients’ objectives and needs are met and their time and effort maximized. In a global context in which internationalization and multiculturalism are no longer empty words but an everyday reality, commanding a global language like Spanish can be the difference between having a job and having a career. I offer exclusive tutorial services tailored to the needs of a wide variety of students-- from professionals with a busy calendar to primary and secondary school students. I will go meet you at the place of your choice --at your home, office, or favorite cafe. Regardless of your language level, I will work with you to ensure that you reach your learning objectives in the most effective way. Each of my clients is unique and so are my tutorials. Unlike regular learning environments, my tutorials are especially designed to address your professional needs and personal interests --whether you work in business, law, the medical industry, or education, or your cultural interests are Latin American music or Spanish architecture.

With years of experience at language teaching in at Ivy League institutions, I incorporate into the teaching the latest and most advanced methodologies in language acquisition. To ensure the quality and adequacy of my tutorials, I design my own exercises and teaching materials.

My interactive, highly communicative exercises, always incorporate cultural materials and content so that grammatical and syntactical learning is made entertaining and informative. In addition, by incorporating multi-media materials such as videos, music, and films into my class materials, I ensure that all students are confronted with diverse cultural and linguistic materials.

Background

I am an Ivy League-educated PhD holder with years of experience teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language at a university level who can offer high quality one-on-one tutorials for primary- and secondary school students and professionals, as well as company-based group lessons. I speak Spanish, Portuguese, German, English, and French and, therefore, I am fully aware of the joys and pitfalls of language learning, not just as a teacher but also as a professor. My tutorials and classes are dynamic and focused on the active use of Spanish and Portuguese and the integration of cultural materials with grammar and syntax.

Details

I am open to negotiating my rates for students that are serious about learning and who are willing to make a commitment for us to work together. I am, however, a well educated and trained tutor with excellent credentials and more than a decade experience and that level of expertise is reflected in my fees.

Perfect! I have worked with Brais during the pandemic to keep up with my Spanish assignments. He is very knowledgeable and has managed to explain grammatical aspects of Spanish I didn't understand at first. Great guy!

Brais's response

Great Student

Perfect! My daughter really enjoys working with Brais. She is in 9th grade and she was having real problems with Spanish. Brais has managed to turn round the situation and turn her average grades into solid As. Most importantly, she is enjoying Spanish for the first time. He has a great command of grammar and syntax and he gives her a lot of cultural information that has made my daughter really interested in Latin America and Spain. He is amazing : )

I really enjoyed working with Brais for my college application essays . I initially came to him to help me with my Personal Statement but he was so helpful that I decided to work with him with my other supplemental essays .Working with Brais gave me the structure and support that I needed to help turn my essays from good to great . If you are in need of someone to guide you through the daunting college essay process and help you tell your story in the most effective way I would highly recommend Brais!
