  • Spanish by Lorna

    (6 reviews)

    Spanish by Lorna offers a private Spanish teaching/tutoring for students of all ages and levels of proficiency. My Reston, VA, studio is a short drive from Great Falls, McLean, Herndon and many other Northern VA suburbs. I work with students from many local schools, including Langley HS, McLean HS, Thomas Jefferson HS, St. John's College HS, South Lakes HS, Oakton HS, Nysmith, Forestville Great Falls and Buzz Aldrin ES, among many others. I also work with professionals, including lawyers, engineers, homemakers as well as anyone involved in international business or simply interested in the thrill of learning another language. I have also had great success working with couples who wish to experience the thrill of learning together. I give lessons on-site in Reston, VA. I have a passion for teaching and helping others. I love to provide students with exceptional learning experiences. I love working with students and blending traditional teaching methods with technology to enhance the learning experience. It is such a joy to watch the excitement blossom within a student as the learning starts to take hold. The gift of language is an investment that lasts a lifetime, and it should be fun, exciting and meaningful. Learning to communicate in a foreign language, thus opening the door to another world is one of the most important achievements in life. I would love to help guide you in your language journey. Learning how to read and have wonderful conversations in another language is a lot of fun and a very rewarding experience. I try to make learning Spanish both interesting and enjoyable for my students, using software, books, flash cards and games. I love about teaching Spanish, and I look forward to working with you! Here are some references from my students. "Fabulous" Charles from McLean, VA. "Lorna L. is a marvelous Spanish tutor. She is delightful, charming, intelligent and extremely flexible. Rather than use a rigid and rote language system, she sizes up the student and designs a program that is best tailored to his or her needs. I am very lucky to have stumbled across Lorna, and I, very much, look forward to spending as much time as I can with her." "She is one in a million" Hammad from Reston, VA. "I was blessed to have Lorna as a teacher for about one year. I wanted to increase my conversational Spanish because of my job. After one year of being with Lorna, my conversational Spanish improved a great deal. In fact, when I finally took a college level Spanish class, I discovered that my Spanish speaking skills were far more advanced than my classmates. I enjoyed my time with Lorna because she made learning Spanish fun and entertaining. She is a natural teacher with exceptional knowledge of the Spanish language. What stood out to me the most was her unwavering patience. I am not a typical student. That is to say, I am a very demanding and passionate student. Lorna was the perfect match for me because she was passionate about teaching. I highly recommend her. She is one in a million." "Perfect match for my daughter" Randall from Herndon, VA. "Lorna instantly established a bond with my daughter, which is not easy! Lorna can keep her attention for over an hour, something that I thought not previously possible. I have noticed instant progress with my daughter's Spanish, most importantly in her attitude toward the subject. Lorna is highly recommended." "Wonderful personality and highly patient" - Vic from Herndon, VA. "Ms. Lorna has transformed our son's interest in Spanish, and he has been scoring very highly on his tests in school. This was a kid who was completely disinterested in the language arts and what Lorna has done for him has been nothing short of miraculous. Furthermore, she has been very flexible with our changing schedule when she can. We highly recommend Lorna." "What a great teacher!" Michael from Fairfax, VA. "My daughter is in 3rd grade and has been learning Spanish for a year. When we started to look for a Spanish teacher, Mrs. Lorna's profile seems to be exactly what we were looking for. After several lessons, my daughter told me that she is the best teacher ever! Since March when we started to have weekly classes, my daughter's Spanish really emerged and she is putting a lot of effort, mainly due to the love of language Mrs. Lorna brings into the classroom. We are so happy with the lessons in general and so with the curriculum developed by Mrs. Lorna that include also electronic tools, making the lessons real fun. My daughter can't wait till the next lesson and practices the entire week in order to be able to learn something new. Mrs. Lorna is an amazing teacher, and we are so happy." "Energetic and Committed to Helping Student" Troy from Oakton, VA. " She is a great tutor! Lorna has a great personality. She is motivated and caring about her student's progress. She is flexible with her schedule. Thank you for helping our son improve his Spanish."

  • NeuGrowth Ctr for Brain-Training

    I am one of the most effective and personable tutors you'll ever meet! Why? It is because for over 25 years, I have studied the brain and learning, and I have taught in many settings. I am a creative teacher who is using many ways for concepts to be understood. For example, I have sets of fraction pies, and the circles are divided evenly by different numbers of cuts. I tell stories to help kids use these fraction pies and be able to learn through the hands by picking up the pieces and rearranging them. In general, my tutoring begins, believe it or not, with babies! I do that by training the parents on how to set up an environment conducive to optimized learning. Did you know that during the first 2 years a baby operates mainly from the right side of the brain? I teach parents how to take advantage of that fact to help their babies develop. These are all done in 4 minutes/day with love and fun. For preschoolers, I teach, in a very interactive way, any major subject, including STEM subjects, namely science, technology, engineering and math. My specialty here is teaching about other cultures, eating, making art, the animals there, the language, the music and the mythology. Kids love it! For elementary through high school students, I can help in English, including reading comprehension, effective book selection and growing vocabulary as well as writing clearly for essays, papers and correspondence. I offer math tutoring, from the beginning to calculus, social studies, self-discipline, getting and staying organized, time management and more. I also help with beginning French, Spanish and Japanese. I specialize in teaching English to speakers of other languages. I use what I've studied for over 25 years. I have the brain and the learning to make my lessons more effective. Kids learn the strategies they can apply right away in the future to improve their memory and performance. Testimonials and referrals are available. Just call! If you don't see it here, just ask!

Thumbtack Spotlight

Pura Buena Onda - Conversational Spanish

(9 reviews)

What do you love about your job?

There are so many things I love about my job! I love the students whom I meet. They are absolutely amazing, interesting and open people. I love the team that I work with. It is made up of fantastic teachers. They are also fun, intelligent and warm-hearted individuals.

I love to see the students progress. It's so gratifying to see a students who come in and barely know anything. However, after a few months, they are having full-blown conversations about life, current events, etc.

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

Matt, a friend and writer, who I worked with in the television industry suggested I open my own business one day. I thought he was crazy, but for some reason, I put some thought into it and took his suggestion. I'm so glad that I did!

Describe your most memorable project.

Eight years ago, I made the switch from teaching traditional Spanish classes to teaching conversational Spanish. Grammar, reading, writing, etc. are all great to know, but if you can't communicate with someone, it doesn't really matter how well you conjugate verbs. My students now have a fun and friendly place to practice their Spanish!
