Often times there is a stage in language learning where after a lot of textbook work, one feels as if they know know a boatload of useless information while still having no idea how to actually understand and use the language to communicate. I had a bunch of random, jumbled pieces of the Spanish language scattered throughout my brain. I had no idea how actually put those pieces together and make what is a huge step in any language learning process. I was only able to do it with Nat's help. In addition to her fantastic knowledge of Spanish and Latino culture, the lessons plans covered the most important vocabulary, phrases, and situations in Spanish that one needs in order to feel comfortable using the language in everyday situations. With her help, I was able to test out of four semesters of college Spanish. Plus, she is a fun person to talk to! Highly recommend!
Loving the experience of learning a new language plus my teacher Tom is awesome! Gracias
Our first lesson was an exciting dive back into language learning. Looking forward to weekly assignments and communication.
Patricia is delightful! Puts a lot of thought into each lesson and is always enthusiastic and optimistic about my ability to learn spanish. It has been a positive experience for me!!
I offer individual or group ACT and Spanish lessons tailored to whatever the student wants to accomplish. Whether you mainly need help with a certain section on the ACT or want to pursue a holistic approach, I can help. With regards to Spanish, we can work on vocabulary, situational conversation skills, grammar, accents, etc.
I have seven years of experience with instruction of all aspects of English language arts, Latin and writing composition. In teaching, I focus on the key elements of language and composition. These include the significance of contextual evidence, literary/rhetorical device usage, the patterns consistent throughout all languages, interpretation and comprehension of literature and perfecting the stages of the writing process. I particularly emphasize skillful word usage and sentence variation in any written work as well as in rhetoric. In order to teach language structure, I teach the vital critical thinking skills necessary to analyze and interpret languages. Those invaluable problem-solving skills extend far beyond learning the grammar and vocabulary of any language. They reach across the academic curriculum and into the professional world. Guided by my instruction, students reach their academic goals and surpass their own expectations. My primary tutoring subjects are the following: * Latin (grammar, translation, interpretation and composition) * English Language Arts * Composition * Grammar * Proofreading and Editing * Writing Skills * Literature * Study Skills/Organizational Planning
I find that if you really love what you do then the quality will speak for itself. I found that I was terrible at waiting tables because I lacked passion for it. So I had to ask myself what is that I love doing? I love learning French and I love playing my guitar. So I set up a business around these two loves of my life. I love watching people as they learn that it is possible to learn a second language or play along their favorite songs on guitar.
I have taught private swim lessons, from 6 months to adults, for 7 years. I also teach special needs children. You will be amazed how quickly you or your child will learn how to swim. I have taught hundreds of children and adults how to swim. I use the swim-float-swim method. I have taught sign language, from 2nd grade to adults, for 27 years. With everything I teach, you will have so much fun learning. I have been very involved with the deaf community.
While I have excellent skills in language, writing and instruction, my special strengths as an instructor are my interpersonal skills - the ability to communicate, connect and quickly understand my clients' needs and modes of learning and working; and to develop curricula in accordance with this. As an writer/editor/proofreader, I have an kken eye and deep love of language and for uncovering the right language for the work.
My name is Carmen, and I was an English teacher in South Korea. I taught ages 5 through 10 for a year and a half, and in college, I had initiated and instructed Adobe software workshops for students who wanted to learn and expand the basic knowledge that was given in the classroom. I love to tutor as well as the one-on-one teacher to student time. I did this regularly in college to help Spanish majors with their homework and to challenge them with their conversation skills. I grew up in Chile, South America, until high school, which made me fluent in Spanish by the age of 4. I also attended a French immersion program in high school giving me the ability to speak, read and write at a college level. I prefer speaking only the language that is being taught if it is a language-specific tutoring session. It is difficult at first, but as my preschoolers learned in Korea, they can't go to the bathroom until they could say, "May I go to the bathroom please?" With software on the other hand, I will not be speaking in 0s and 1s, but with adequate words that are not too tech-savvy at first. Although in time, a vocabulary will be developed. I hope to hear from you soon and start learning!
