Alejandro is an amazing Spanish tutor!!! I am a beginner and was always intimidated about taking private Spanish lessons. He is very professional and has a great way of teaching his students. Always prepared and on time. I'm extremely happy with how much I've learned already ( I've had 8 classes so far) and would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking to learn Español. Muchas gracias Alejandro.
Before UMB, I have never taken a class on a different language due to the fact that I went to a technical trade high school. As a Transfer Student entering UMASS Boston, it is a requirement that the student must take 2 semesters (101 and 201) of a language. I chose Spanish because I thought it was the second most spoken language next to English. After the first few weeks of trying to learn spanish with the course and a couple iphone apps, my professor recommended that I go to the UMB tutoring center to better understand this Spanish language. It was at this scheduling session where I was matched up with Arlete as my tutor. We would meet once a week to go over the weekly material and she would give me pointers on how to study and clarify the words that I was unfamiliar with along the way. After a few weeks into the semester, I knew that if I had any chance of passing the class that it would be with the tutoring assistance from Arlete that I could achieve my goal. I ended up passing SPAN101 in the Fall Semester. As the Spring Semester rolled around, I was put into the SPAN201 where I knew I was going back to the tutoring center to find further assistance to help me pass this course as well. While the process for establishing a tutor took longer due to the snow days, I had one session with a different tutor until I made it clear with Arlete that I would like her to tutor me for another semester of this Spanish. We went over the coursework as we did in the SPAN101 but this time it was a bit more advanced. After all was said and done, I passed the class and I couldn't have done it without 2 semesters of help from Arlete. She made it clear that we would meet one day a week at a time acceptable for both of us and we would go over my assignments. It wasn't until small talk that I begin to notice that she was taking time out of her own classes that she could've used extra help to help me instead. I was very appreciative and thankful because I don't think I could've passed the class without meeting with her. I believe she would be a great asset to anybody who needs help with Spanish. She has quite the knowledge on the subject and knows how to relay the information.
Rob is a well experienced tutor. I enjoyed our lesson plans and I feel they are very helpful. He's very flexible and didn't mind working with a busy schedule. In a few weeks I felt comfortable with the basics. He's able to taylor your lesson plans based off you needs.
I have had Tutors for a few different languages (Japanese & Portugues) so I have experience in working with people of all skill levels trying to teach me a foreign language; that said, Candi is BY FAR the best tutor I've had the pleasure of working with. What makes Candi fit with me is her extreme flexibility. My job sends me on the road at a moments notice and each time I've had to change the schedule Candi has been able to happily accommodate me. A big part of Candi's approach is her positivity, which keeps me smiling and always looking forward to my class. When it comes to her approach to teaching as a tutor, Candi is professional, kind, and extremely knowledgeable. Tutoring an adult comes with specific challenges, dedication being the most destructive, but Candi's style inspires one to keep with the program and her abilities allow you to have successes on a weekly or bi-weekly basis further inspiring you to move forward. As you can probably tell I am very fond of and thankful for Candi, she's an amazing Teacher and the main reason why I'll be touring Spain next year with a great grasp of the local language. Definitely sign up for her program and you'll be speaking Spanish in no time!
We are really loving our Spanish lessons with Alejandra! She really pushes us to learn and makes it lots of fun. She is very flexible and friendly and she’s a real pleasure to work with. My husband and i will continue to work with her and we are looking forward to improving our Spanish with Alejandra.
Juan is a very professional and organized instructor. I took Spanish lessons with him and my level of proficiency increased dramatically since I needed to pass the ACTFL Intermediate High. In addition, he speaks Colombian Spanish which is one of the easiest varieties to understand. I strongly recommend him.
I enjoy helping people come to a greater understanding of the Spanish and English languages. I offer services to help the student looking to improve his/her grades, those with the professional desire to improve their Spanish, the native Spanish speaker wanting to improve his/her English and/or the person with a passing interest in picking up a few Spanish phrases.
I do very well at explaining how the language works.
I teach the Spanish language. This includes writing, speaking, reading and understanding with a proper Spanish from Spain. It is the original language, but I know how to teach the South American Spanish as a second option! Plus, I do have a university education.
I was born in Cuba and graduated from Havana University. I guarantee that you will learn Spanish better with me and sooner than any language system out there can. There is no better way to learn a language than with someone native and educated in it.
I'm from Colombia. I'm not a teacher formally, but I think I can help you improve your Spanish. I speak very little English, and my proposal is to exchange language learning.
I try to make sessions entertaining.
I currently work at a private Catholic high school as a Spanish language teacher for levels 2 and 3 students. I have worked with students at all levels of Spanish in the past. As a young professional, I am constantly seeking new and creative ways to engage students with the language that may not be offered or available to them through traditional methods.
If you can read and write, you can learn Spanish. I have been teaching Spanish for over 9 years, including college level (Northeastern University as tutor and Simmons College as a teacher). I am very proud of the success my students have had learning Spanish, particularly those who thought learning Spanish was too hard and now they speak, write and read the language comfortably. Please, in your first message, provide information regarding your Spanish level: * Beginners: You never took Spanish before or never learned anything from previous classes. You need to build a vocabulary to start building sentences. * Intermediate: You took Spanish before, but forgot most of it. Youve built some vocabulary, but dont know how to put everything together. You need to learn a lot more grammar and how to use it in a sentence. * Advanced: You are familiar with the language. You can read Spanish and understand most of it, but need a lot of practice with listening and conversation. You need to review few issues with grammar as well (pronouns, prepositions, reflexives, subjunctive and few others). * Private lessons: Learn the language faster. You make your own schedule. You choose the location. Its flexible from Monday to Sunday, at 2 hours at week.

I am especially good at facilitating structured conversation with a grammatical base, so that there is a context upon which to build language skills. --MINIMUM TIME IS ONE HOUR LESSON--NOT 45 MINUTES. MY RATES REFLECT MY TRAINING AND EXPERIENCE. FEWER SESSIONS THAN ONCE A WEEK WILL NOT PRODUCE RESULTS. IDEALLY THEY SHOULD RUN FOR TWO HOURS IN ORDER TO PROGRESS. LANGUAGE IS NOT LEARNED BY OSMOSIS!
