Bio

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.

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!

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.

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.

Patient and reliable Spanish tutor

Silvina tutored my 16-year-old in 2nd year and 3rd year high school Spanish. She helped bring his grade up from a C to a B. Silvina is really patient and persistent. She did a fantastic job keeping my son engaged and focused. She was always flexible with her time in scheduling or re-scheduling appointments. She’s terrific!

Fantastic Tutor

Silvina has helped my son immensely. He's a Sophomore and got a really bad Spanish teacher. Silvina helped bring his grade back up to an A. She's an excellent tutor and I'm so thankful to her!

Ishani, 11 lessons with Silvina

Great Tutor

My 16 yr old son wanted to work a bit with a tutor after studying on his own to try to place out of Spanish 1 and into Spanish 2. Silvina was perfect, very responsive and flexible, and he says that once Spanish 2 is under way at school he would like to turn to her again for help as the need arises. Five stars.

Great Spanish tutor

Silvina was a great help to my son in his Spanish II class. She helped him prep for tests and helped him grasp a better understanding on how to read and communicate in Spanish.

Courtney, 22 lessons with Silvina

Extremely friendly and knowledgeable! Easy to work with.

I have had one lesson with Silvina, and I was extremely pleased. I have some knowledge of the language, but have struggled with it for 2 years now. Silvina helped me to feel comfortable and relaxed

Absolutely amazing

Silvina is extremely professional, due diligent and knowledgeable tutor. I was using her to prepare for Spanish SATs with listening and she did a great job! Great lesson structure, very engaging, positive and result oriented. Highly recommend.

Ilona, 10 lessons with Silvina

Awesome tutor, friendly and happy to help!

Silvina is an excellent tutor, and I look forward to working with her more in the future. I began learning Spanish as a job skill, and have only taken a break from lessons for the next few months due to a drastic increase in my workload. I am eager to start lessons with Silvina again as soon as feasible. Silvina is patient and attentive, and readily identifies pronunciation and grammatical errors to facilitate the learning process. She is a friendly and happy person and provides a great environment for learning. Finally, she is willing to focus on specific subject areas in order to encourage learning on topics of interest to the student. So much fun! Excelente Silvina!
