I assess each student to figure out their learning style and then we discuss their goals. We work together to devise a plan to achieve those goals in the shortest time possible. I have had great success connecting with my students which makes the teaching process enjoyable, therefore more successful.
I was a Spanish major in college, studying for a year at the University of Madrid in Spain. I've successfully taught 100+ middle school through college students as well as adults for 17 years. All of my students have achieved their academic or speaking and writing goals.
My tutoring fee is $40. It may be slightly more than other tutors in the area, but with my extensive experience and success, I have learned to use our time together very efficiently and I am an excellent teacher.
I have taught a variety of disciplines over the past 15 years. I started my own very successful Spanish Tutoring business 15 years ago, catering to Pittsburgh private and public school Students. I have taught spin and fitness classes for 7 years. Both require a keen sense of discovering the student’s needs, building trusting relationships, and then developing a program that motivates, inspires, empowers, and achieves the desired goals.
Private Spanish Tutor: Sewickley, PA 15143 2001-present
I tutor Small groups and individuals, ages 6th-12th grade in introductory through AP Spanish. I teach kids that are struggling, kids that are motivated to skip a year of Spanish, and kids that are preparing for college. I successfully and creatively introduce complicated Spanish grammatical concepts and simplify them to make them accessible to all types of students. I figure out what kind of learner the student is and tailor my teaching to help them learn easier and have more success. I develop a relationship with the student so our time is interesting and engaging. I work to build confidence until they become self sufficient in Spanish. And I work together with teachers and parents, if necessary, to get the student functioning independently.I also tutor adults who want to learn the language and college students in advanced levels of Spanish
