In person (Center city Philadelphia) and online lessons available.
WHY PRIVATE LESSONS? Everybody learns differently! In some cases, I recommend a pre-assessment (test) to figure out your language knowledge and set up a base. I like to get an understanding of my students’ learning style and proficiency level. This is why I offer a consultation free of charge to learn more about the way you learn and design a series of lessons that fit your needs.
HOW? The structure of the lesson is based on how you learn best. Some people like to work their way through a textbook, others like to get a base first before moving on to more intense writing and reading. Regardless, I emphasize using all domains (reading, writing, listening and speaking) though at the beginning I like to focus more on listening and speaking to get used to the sounds, recognizing and producing words. A typical lesson includes words of the day, some grammar concept and then practice through games, worksheets and/or conversation.
WHAT? Regarding materials, we usually use worksheets and other materials that I provide or that are easily accessed through the internet (e.g. News articles).
WHEN? We can start as soon as it is convenient for you.
WHERE? I teach lessons at my home in Center City Philadelphia. If you are NOT local, I also offer online coaching through Skype which requires a computer and an internet connection.
HOW MUCH? Individual lessons start at $60 per session (one hour).
Small group lessons are also available by signing up together with others with a similar Spanish level and pace. One hour session: $40 per person (2 people).
Do you have any further questions? Do you want to schedule a consultation free of charge? Please submit your availability and the answers to the following questions in the form below:
- What is your native language? What other languages do you speak?
- Have you taken Spanish/English lessons before? If so, for how long and when?
- What is roughly your level of proficiency in Spanish/English? (Beginner, intermediate, advanced)
- What is your target proficiency level in Spanish/English?
- And… the most important of all… why do you want to learn Spanish/English?
I look forward to working with you and becoming your language coach!
