Spanish is a beautiful language with a growing market worldwide, and is predicted to be one of the key languages in the world and markets going forward, specially if you live, go to school or do business in the United States.
Spanish is the second most spoken language in the world, and the number of Spanish speaking people is rapidly growing worldwide.

2.- Spanish (332,000,000)
3.- English (322,000,000)
I am a mature, very proud Spanish speaking professional eager to share the richness of this language with the expertise required to ensure accuracy in teaching both, written and spoken Spanish.
Thank you for your interest in learning Spanish!

Lorraine was one of the best teachers I've ever met. She was super knowledgeable and patient. She helped to prepare my son for SAT Spanish language test 2013, and my son scored a great score. Lorraine took time to prepare review material for my son and she clarified the slightest confusion my son has in relation to Spanish grammar. We would recommend Lorraine to everyone. We were very lucky to have found Lorraine, hope you are too!
Lorraine has brought a whole new meaning to learning a second language! Her expertise on structure and grammar are very impressive ! Her patience is amazing and she really wants you to get it ! Great Tutor
Lorraine is instrumental for my son to succeed in Spanish in high school. Very pleasant to deal with, thank you.
I have done a few lessons with Lorraine and have already learned so much from her. She is very patient and clear with her lessons. She is a wonderful tutor and I would highly recommend her to anyone who would like to learn Spanish and have fun doing it too.
My cousin and I took her beginning Spanish for almost one month. She is very patient and nice. We learned a lot of things from her. She is the best Spanish tutor I have ever met.
Lorraine has done wonders for my daughter's Spanish (Spanish 2)! Loraine is on time, calls to clarify times, and is focused on my daughter doing her best. My daughter's grade went from average to an A plus! We started out two days a week and were able to taper down to one but can increase before big tests. We do pay an extra mileage fee as we are in a different city and the traffic is awful. This is only a few dollars but she is worth it. I totally trust her alone with my daughter. She is very professional, but personable. It is such a relief to have Lorraine.
Lorraine is tutoring my daughter in Spanish and she is exceptional. I would highly recommend her.
Hola, I am a 30-yr old, former beginner Spanish speaker. I need to brush up on my Spanish, and especially want to be fluent enough to converse with Spanish speaking participants in my Nutrition field. I had a good session with Lorraine. She is patient and nice and very knowledgeable.
I would really prefer in person lessons, but she preferred Skype sessions. Also I would prefer a lesson that is structured with lesson plans, but this session she asked me what I needed to know and told me how to say those phrases. I would like to have an approach that teaches the basics and foundations, so then I could figure out anything I need to say on my own, and feel that I have a real grasp of the language.
Thank you very much for your feedback. Every tutoring class I give is customized to the student's needs. They are structured based on a specific program either to match already existing school program or personal focus request. In your case, the class took place under the following circumstances.
- The lesson took place on line due to your location being out of my driving radius, which you agreed on.
- You have a great deal of Spanish knowledge and expressed your interest in improving specific conversational dialogues to communicate with your patients, which was the focus of the class.
My apologies if you did not feel completely satisfied about the class.
Lorraine was an amazing tutor for Spanish. She was patient, friendly, and helped my daughter improve her pronunciation and Spanish vocabulary in two days. Perfecto!!
Lorraine is very good in working with my son's level of understanding and is flexible with time and place. He has improved in his Spanish and looks forward to his tutorial with her. Thank you Lorraine!
Lorraine helped my daughter with her Spanish paper by email, which was very convenient. Doesn't have the paper back yet, so we shall see what the instructor thought.
Thank you Lorraine for helping me with my Spanish. It's up to me from here to get better on my own. Thank you again.
Lorraine is a very professional Spanish tutor. She has experience in teaching and focuses on teaching for the whole tutoring time; and her teaching is taught well to the point. Her tutoring helped me improve my speaking skills for AP Spanish, and now I feel well prepared to get a good score on my oral test. She has really good teaching ethics, a positive attitude; and most importantly, the skills to improve the Spanish of non-speakers. In addition, this tutor is really nice and teaches like a real teacher. She has true skills in instructing Spanish.
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.
