Spanish

I am a graduated translator/teacher from Chile. I have many years of experience teaching Spanish and English as second languages. My students start speaking Spanish after a few lessons, using a fun system. If you need help either with written or spoken Spanish, I will give you the necessary tools and guidance for you to achieve your goals.

The best way to learn a foreign language is with a native teacher, without accent, and who knows and practices an up-to-date language.
For two years, I have been teaching Spanish at a local school, and will soon start at another school, so if you have problems with Spanish 1, 2 or 3 or any level at college, do not hesitate to contact me.

Also, I am very excited to start teaching Spanish to K-6 kids using the programs "Risas y Sonrisas" and Whistlefritz. These are programs with a variety of tools and strategies to get children interested in learning Spanish. If you want your kids speak Spanish early, these programs will give your children an extensive vocabulary, words and sentences, and practical communication skills, maintaining a high level of retention, and developing a growing interest in the new language.

German

In College I minored in German. Afterwards, I lived 2 years in Berlin where I finished Mittelstufe 2 at Hartnackschule. I enjoy living my life in three languages and helping others with their grammatical needs.

If you have been to Germany, you will probably know that to really know the German culture, you need to understand and speak the language. If you are planning to travel to Germany and want to learn the language, I offer you a course of 10 classes or more, which will give you the tools to go around a city for example, and be able to introduce yourself, understand signs, ask for information, price, order food in a restaurant, buy stuff at a store, etc. We will study using fun videos and language programs.

Also, I offer a wonderful beginner German course for children, learning through catchy songs and videos. They will not stop singing!

Bis bald!

fabulous tutor — Viviana was the answer to our prayers. My daughter was so overwhelmed and frustrated with her school Spanish class that she was only hoping to "pass." Now with Viviana's help she is actually understanding the language and is looking forward to continuing her Spanish courses for her remaining high school years. She is so positive and kind as well as patient and thorough in her lessons! ...
