My training as a Spanish instructor is based on studies of Spanish grammar and using the communicative approach methodology that is based on practical and simple activities that help develop skills such as oral expression, listening comprehension, writing with dictation and reading as well. Of course phonetics is included. Each class focuses on the specific needs of each student.
In each class I emphasize oral practice to help students feel confident to express themselves naturally in specific situations.
In some cases, the grammatical structure is included in a simplified and dynamic way, and the grammatical concepts may or may not be used in our class, depending on the interests or preferences of each student.
Also, I like to share the history and culture of my country and Latin America through the practice of Spanish as a natural practice for intermediate and advanced Spanish.
I invite you to book a trial class to learn about my teaching system and methodology.See Reviews From Students
I'm Azahara, a certified Spanish teacher by Instituto Cervantes.
I have specialised in teaching Spanish to English speakers, but I have also taught international students in Thailand, Granada (Spain) and, of course, online.
My lessons are very dynamic and tailored to your needs.
I really enjoy teaching all kind of levels: it is very rewarding seeing the progress of a beginner student that starts to be able to communicate in Spanish after a few well structured classes whereas more advance lessons allow to very interesting topics and a little bit more freedom in the structure of the lesson.
¿Hablamos? Let's talk!
A little bit more about me: I was born and raised in Zaragoza, a small city in the North of Spain famous for its wine, food and a football team that used to be good. I love traveling and languages: currently I'm studying Japanese, but I also (try to) speak French, Arabic and Spanish Sign Language; so yes, I know how it feels learning a language from 0! You're not alone in this process and I'll try my best to make it easy for you :DSee Reviews From Students

As a teacher:
I am passionate about constantly learning and also learning from others. I have always believed that learning should be fun, in a space of trust where you feel comfortable and can express your doubts. I like to adapt to the learner's needs and, at the same, time propose challenges to help them reach their maximum potential. If you are nervous about speaking for the first time, don't worry, I understand, we all go through that! and it will never be a reason for criticism. I am an open-minded person, and I like to be empathetic and understanding. There is no room for discrimination of any kind in my lessons.
A bit about me:
• I love music, movies (especially horror!), series, and anime, among many other things.

¡Hola,soy Marlene! 😃I live in Puebla City, one of the main cities in Mexico. I studied architecture and music. As a Spanish tutor, I have taught over three years to people from all over the world.
Have you ever had or overheard a conversation where you couldn't understand anything because it's not what you've learned in books? Don't worry, in our classes we will learn how we really speak in everyday situations 😉.
I consider myself a very patient and dynamic person, so the classes with you will be personalized according to your needs and interests. I will help you with grammar, pronunciation, Mexican slang, or just have a very pleasant conversation. Conversation is the most important activity when learning a language; that's why from the very first class, we will be speaking Spanish.
I will very happy to meet you!😀See Reviews From Students
Hi! I'm Agustina from a small town in Córdoba, Argentina. This town was founded by germans and the have build the first german school in the province. I visited these school and then was when I had my first contact with a foreign language. I have a passion for languages. I love learning them but also teaching them because it is the most natural and efficient way to exchange languages and cultures. In my city, Córdoba, I studied to become a German Translator and thanks to an agreement between universities I had the opportunity to do two exchanges in Germany, they were incredible experiences in which I met many interesting people, made friends and visited beautiful places.
Besides spanish, german and english I also have an elementary level of russian.
My hobbies are writing in my literary blog, doing sports and yoga, going out with friends, dancing and making crafts.
I have 3 years of experience as an online teacher and I use several didactic resources to make the class entertaining and to provide you with an ideal environment for concentration and language learning.
I enjoy creating my own teaching materials.
I work with the communicative method and focus my classes to the interests of the students. I like it when my students can loosen up and become more confident with me and the language and can start talking more.
I work with different materials, I don't like to be glued to a book all the time, but I do like to use it for support and for some important grammatical questions.
I like to use the material I design as my classes are personalized to the interests of each student.
The support materials I normaly use are the books Aula Internacional and Prisma, as well as some websites that are excellent in terms of content and design and also very didactic, such as ProfedeELE or TodoELE, among others.See Reviews From Students
Most students take 55-minute classes. However, some teachers also offer the option of 30-minute classes. If this is available, it will be noted on their profile (below their pricing and above the 'Buy Lessons' button).
In general, we recommend 55-minute classes for most students. You may want to consider 30-minute classes only if you have an intermediate level and only want conversation practice, or if the lesson is for a child.
If you're new to LanguaTalk, we'll provide you with a credit for a free trial lesson. Many, but not all, teachers offer these for free. If they do not, the price will be reduced to 30 percent of their full lesson price, so you can still try a session at a minimal cost.
Trial lessons are 30 minutes long. They allow you to evaluate whether the teacher is a good fit for you and experience learning online. The teacher will assess your level and try to understand your needs and interests so they can customize any classes you decide to take. You will be encouraged to speak in Spanish as much as possible, but you can also speak in English if needed.
If, after your trial lesson, you don't feel that the teacher is right for you, you can schedule a trial lesson with another teacher for 30 percent of their full lesson price.

You can also book a free trial session to see if it is right for you.
Sometimes students tell us that they're not sure about learning Spanish online because they think it’ll be completely different to learning face-to-face. But usually when they try it, they find that the experience is almost the same and they often build a solid relationship with their teacher.
Once you start a video call with your chosen teacher, you’ll be able to communicate with them as if you were in the same room. The teacher will typically also share learning resources with you (newspaper articles, YouTube, etc.) and you’ll be able to collaborate in real-time using a tool like Google Docs or Dropbox Paper.
There are several options for learning Spanish in Amherst, whether you live in the city center or the suburbs. You can use an app or software program to learn basic vocabulary and grammar.

Learning online may make private teachers a more affordable choice. Prices vary based on the teacher, but are generally cheaper than in-person classes for adults in Amherst.
