What happens when you get stuck in Spanish class and feel like that block is keeping your from success?
What happens when you want to learn one concept and you just can't get past that mental wall?
Who can help you close the gaps of what you missed once you have gone further in class and feel lost?

The answer?
Linguatron!

Hey, that's not my real name.
Linguatron is a name I made up to "cut through the grammar walls", "break through the idioms that trip up students" and " seal gaps where people fall through the cracks of one lesson on the way to the next.

Need some help?
Need your class broken down into parts so we can put it back together and you can see how it all fits?
Want to find a way to accelerate your learning, and ensure that you keep pace with your goals?

If you said, "yeah!", I can help.
If you said, "totally, let's get started.
If you said, "like, who wouldn't?", I can assist you, too.

You know how you learn, what you have to do to succeed in learning, and what you have to do by when.

I know how people learn, what blocks most students face, and what to do to get past these challenges.

For over 20 years I have explained things teachers have no time for, have unearthed ways to "learn" not just study a language, and pinpointed systems that are helping you or hurting you as you go to class.

My experience has been in places like Mexico, California, Puerto Rico, Florida, Germany, the Czech Republic and Russia. Lock in your time, and I will help you learn Spanish now.

Like you, I had to "study" Spanish from the outside in. English is my first language.

I am fluent in two other languages, too.
Contact me today.

Thanks, Nancy. I appreciate the feedback. Your daughter is really ready to take Spanish by storm. She has the right motivation, great support from you and is willing to learn. These are huge factors in student success. Remind her to have fun learning outside of class, use her mind , body and soul combination, and study a little before going to bed and when she first wakes up. Best of luck for the rest of the school year. It was delightful meeting you guys.

Spanish

Most people learning Spanish have a reason to learn. This reason drives a lesson plan, tutoring strategy, or "come to the rescue" course of action.

The most common elements to "lesson plans" for Spanish learners include:

Review of singular, plural, masculine, feminine- in general
"How to learn with less study"
How to use music, songs, movies, radio, video, study buddies, and "made up personalities" in the target language.
How to have more fun learning.
Top ten errors.
Top ten strategies to learn secrets of all languages.
