About Silvina

Spanish is my native language. I have a five year Bachelor's Degree in Language and Arts from San Isidro National College in my country. That enabled me to study all the aspects of the language: Grammar, Reading, Vocabulary, Spanish Literature and History.
I have more than twenty years of experience teaching Spanish in my country and in the United States, since I moved here eighteen years ago. I have worked at Elementary Schools. I have tutored students of all age groups (Elementary Schools, High Schools), who needed extra help and support. I also taught to adults, who wanted to learn something that could enrich them.
All these personal aspects are the ones that have helped me to find an effective and dynamic way to teach Spanish. As a tutor, my main objective is that you learn all the aspects of the language. Together, we will learn useful vocabulary and expressions, verbs and other grammatical aspects. We will also work hard on pronunciation, so you feel confident when you speak.
If a student need support at school, I follow the lessons I am presented with, and prepare exercises to reinforce them. And then...speak, speak and speak more Spanish. I always take into account the students' interests and expectations, so I can prepare useful classes. I like to hear how they want to work.
I love tutoring when I can see progress and confidence as a feedback. That makes me feel that I have accomplished my objective and that this passion that I have for languages has the results I expected.
To learn Spanish means to open yourself to the language of many countries and their culture.
Contact me so we can achieve those results!

Thank you so much for your feedback! This is what makes me feel happier than anything else. Children sometimes have difficulties due to factors that have nothing to do with them. And your son was more than willing to improve his Spanish. Thank you again.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Proofreading

I have a clear notion of the structure of sentences and their role as part of an idea.
I'm very detail-oriented when working on spelling and I pay special attention to homophones, as they can lead to mistakes if words are not chosen properly.

Spanish

Spanish is my native language.
I have a Bachelor Degree in Arts. To achieve this, I had to take five years of Spanish Language.
More than twenty years of experience teaching Spanish to children and adults.

TOEFL

When preparing a student for the TOEFL exam, the important thing is to practice and do exercises covering its four parts: Writing, Listening, Reading and Speaking. None of these areas should be underestimated. I not only help student's prepare for the material in order to gain a better understanding of what will be on the exam, but I also prepare them to be confident on the day of the exam to create the largest success possible.

Silvina is very pleasant and patient — Silvina made my son feel very comfortable with her. She taught him a few new things that he was quite pleased to learn. My son is much more eager to understand Spanish II than he has been before. He is not feeling as stressed as he was prior to meeting her with his challenges with Spanish. He looks forward to tutoring with her again soon. ...
