I am a career teacher raised in southern California. Having lived 12 years in South America, I am now teaching Spanish here. In my work as an instructor and tutor --offering both classes and individual lessons-- I have discovered many high school /college people and adult professionals are either currently studying or wanting to improve their Spanish, something I excel at facilitating. I also work with retired people who want to improve their Spanish for travel in Latin America. Unlike learning from a native speaker (I once did) I understand our unique problems with Spanish, and have a teacher's understanding of grammar and international usage.
My methods vary between a more practical approach or academic, depending upon the specific learning situation. I can focus on your learning the Spanish you need for specific purposes, for school or travel or social life. If you are currently studying Spanish I can work with your formal academic coursework, while supplementing my own language learning methods. Whether you want to improve existing Spanish for work, social life or for a planned trip, I can teach you within "themes" with an emphasis on conversation, and/or specific areas of vocabulary, written Spanish if necessary, and proper spoken accent.
Depending upon how we structure our work together I charge from $24/hr. to $33 for individual work and less for couples and small groups, with discounts available.
