One-to-one tutoring with an experienced tutor is the best way to learn Spanish; that's why I am here.
Learning a language for me is a wonderful journey, and I am committed to going through it in the most interesting ways.
I focus on helping to improve a student's confidence, helping him or her to find my Spanish language journey satisfying and rewarding.
The range of classes I offer includes public speaking, customer care, holidays, meetings, negotiations, telephone conversations, and interviews. I can tailor each of my classes to the particular needs of my clients.
My course is based on the communicative method with a particular focus on the oral practice. The grammar I teach is immediately contextualized in the conversation. The student learns how to communicate on important topics through a series of fun exercises and active interactions.
My Spanish lessons are dynamic, so from the first day my student and I will talk in Spanish all the time. We will work as a team to achieve success, and I know my students will speak, read and write Spanish correctly.
You can feel confident that I am qualified to help you achieve your goals. I am comfortable teaching both children and adults how to communicate effectively in Spanish.
Also, I prepare students for their AP Spanish test.
I'm a professional Spanish teacher with over 25 years of experience teaching in high school in my country, Colombia. I was born in Colombia, and my native language is Spanish.
For more than 25 years, I have helped children of all ages, as well as adults, learn or improve their communication and academic skills.
I also teach executives who travel abroad, and need to be able to communicate.
I earned my degree in five years in Colombia. I have a bachelor's degree in foreign languages (English and Spanish) at Santiago de Cali University, and a science degree in special education for literature and Spanish from the same university.
I am certified in the Spanish language. The U.S. equivalency of my university education, as determined by the regionally accredited institution World Education Services (WES), is a bachelor's degree in foreign languages (English/Spanish).
I moved to the United States nine years ago to teach Spanish at the middle and high school levels, as well as for adults. With my help, students improve their skills for studying as well as completing their Spanish homework.
During these 9 years I taught Spanish in New York. Then, I moved to Bryant, Arkansas in July 2012, and I am excited about having the opportunity to continue teaching my wonderful Spanish language to people living in my new home state.
Since every student is different, I will customize the teaching process, so you will benefit 100% from it. I enjoy interacting with people, and my goal is to help them achieve their goals in learning how to speak, write and read Spanish.
I teach Spanish and cultural acumen to business professionals, such as, for an executive who travels abroad and needs to be able to communicate.
My class is very active in conversation from the first day, so you and I will talk in Spanish all the time. My student and I will work as a team to ensure a successful result. I am confident that I help my students resolve their problems in understanding and conversing in the Spanish language.
I love to teach one on one time, with kids and adults. I've tutored here at USA, high school and college students, helping them solve a wide variety of their problems with my language, for example: homework, exercises, translations, grammar, conversations, essays, etc. My students have been very happy with their results, and trusting with my tutoring.
I am preparing students for their APS Spanish test, (state Spanish test), too.
Also, I taught groups of children and adults within programs at the Berlitz Language Center at New York, and I had a special Spanish program for adults when I lived on Long Island, at New York state.
My native language is Spanish. I was born in Colombia. I have over 25 years professional experience, including work in South America, as well as in the USA. In South America, I had extensive experience teaching Spanish at public schools in high school level, and private students (children and adults), too.
The U.S. Equivalency for my educational credentials, for my Bachelor's degree in Foreign Languages (English/Spanish) Education, was evaluated and authenticated, in 2008, by the World Education Services (WES).
It is convenient for me to teach near Benton, Arkansas (where I now reside). I teach private one on one classes at either public libraries (or wherever my students and I mutually decide to meet).
I am very flexible about my availability, and hope to hear from you.
Thank you for your time and attention to this Spanish language learning opportunity.

The best tutor ever — My husband took his first Spanish lesson with Betty and we must say she exceeded our expectations. She is professional, caring and very, very patient. Her classes are well structured and nothing she taught was improvised. Great material and technique and one of the best things is that she makes the student feel comfortable, making sure that the student is really understanding and learning. Waitin ...
