Hola!!!
My Name is Ruben and I am Spanish teacher and tutor for more then 10 years. I am native educated Spanish speaker. What makes me different by tutoring Spanish?
First, I come from Mexico where I got a Degree in Philosophy and Literature. My fluency in this Language is in real native and educated professional Level in 100% Spanish speaking environment! It makes a huge different as in getting a certification in Spanish in college or university in USA. My knowledge in grammar includes elements that are not considered in schools in USA. I can work tutoring for SAT and SSL with high professionalism. Some students call me from LA for tutoring them Spanish even if I need to travel. They say, they find tutors there graduated in Spanish in California Universities, but they are not able to teach them in high elements of the Spanish grammar. I have experience tutoring doctors of Stanford and Berkeley University. I was tutoring Spanish for having fun for adults and kids in Crystal Cruises traveling around the world.
You know what, I can work with kids. I have teaching experience working with kids from kindergarten to 8th grade in elementary and middle school. But I can tutor children from 4th grade and up at home. I use different resources, drawing, music, iPad applications, Mac, cartoons, games and much more to teach them with fun! I have 7 years of experience working with kids and I like that. If you want a real Spanish tutor (not American Spanish) but basic and professional Spanish, contact me, warranty. Hope to hear from you soon!!!

The right sentences could be : "estábamos hechos" in this case you need to add a s in hecho because you talk about nosotros, "we" but this expression in not very used in the spanish speaking countries. In real I would say never.
