Tara is terrific and connected well with my daughter. Her performance in Spanish class has already been positively impacted. More importantly, my daughter is feeling so much more confidence in herself in being able to tackle a difficult subject versus giving up when the going got tough. I'm very pleased.Feb 12, 2016Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Classes through Work-life Spanish can be taught online or in-person to individuals and groups alike. And with class prices as low as $10.00 an hour our prices can't be beat!
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Private sessions begin with a preliminary class to assess the student's level and needs assessment. The student and the teacher will then work together to create a customized lesson to meet the specific needs of the client. Classes can be purchased a la carte or in bulk and are scheduled through our online scheduler on our website.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am very interested in teaching to both sides of the brain and actually wrote my masters thesis on this very topic. In doing this, I incorporate a variety of teaching methodologies into my lessons, primarily Communicative Language Teaching, Total Physical Response/the Gouin Method, the Grammar-Translation method and a variety of web 2.0 tools. By incorporating words and pictures, physical movements and patterns, music and poetry to my teaching, both sides of my students' brains are activated and individuals of all learning styles show tremendous progress in their language abilities. My classes are communicative but most lessons also incorporate all four language skills: speaking, reading, writing and listening.
