Bio

With more than a decade of experience studying more than 5 different languages as a foreign language student myself, not only do I understand the responsibility of teaching a language, but more importantly, I recognize and relate to the precise requirements, concerns and challenges foreign language students face, and thus am able to provide a positive and motivating learning environment to meet all of their goals and needs.

With more than a decade of experience studying more than 5 different languages as a foreign language student myself, not only do I understand the responsibility of teaching a language, but more importantly, I recognize and relate to the precise requirements, concerns and challenges foreign language students face, and thus am able to provide a positive and motivating learning environment to meet all of their goals and needs.

I believe that learning a language is about more than just the grammar and the vocabulary; learning a language is about learning a culture, and this is a critical theme that I strive to incorporate into my lessons and teaching strategies to truly create an enjoyable, applicable, and relevant learning experience.

In Spanish language in particular, my formal academic background was composed of 5 years at the high school level, including AP Spanish 4 Language and AP Spanish 5 Literature. Since then, I have spent extensive time abroad in Spanish-speaking countries and working with Spanish-speaking colleagues and friends.

Salsa Dancing

Salsa Dancing

I have been latin dancing myself for the past 2 years, including salsa, bachata, cumbia, and merengue. As an instructor, I offer lessons at the beginner level. I most enjoy working with those who have never danced before, and helping even those who claim they have "two left feet" to realize that -even if that is so- they can still dance! My dance partner and I will help you to get a hold of the basic steps and feel comfortable with the rhythm of the different beats. We offer instruction both one-on-one or in small groups.

In total, I have more than 3 years of experience in providing conversational practice through English language immersion (mostly with younger children, ages 5-8) and 4+ years helping non-native English speakers to improve their writing. With the Honor Society at my college in Switzerland, I participated in an after-school language program at the Sorengo Elementary School to teach the children English. In preparation for leading lessons, I received training in second-language learning theory. Based on the techniques I learned and practiced, I have developed a strong sense of what strategies are most effective. As an official tutor at the college library of an international school in Switzerland, I also gained significant experience providing structured academic assistance to help ESL students to improve and develop their writing skills.

Spanish

I have been instructing students in Spanish as a foreign language for the past three years. I mainly work with high school students in Spanish levels 1 to 4 (including honors and AP), but I also work with children in homeschooling and adults just looking to improve overall conversational skills. As a student back in middle school and high school, I myself went through Spanish from level 1 to 5 AP, as well, so I am very familiar with the courses and expectations at different levels from both the perspective of a teacher and a student myself. In lessons, I emphasize conversation and getting my students to feel more confident speaking. I also focus heavily on grammar and helping students to break down and really understand language structure.

Excellent Tutor!

Arianne arrives prepared and ready to start. She is patient, explains the material well, and provides additional study tools for independent studying when she leaves. I highly recommend her!

Brenda, 2 lessons with Arianne

Outstanding Tutor!!!!

Arianne is a wonderful tutor who helped my daughter with Spanish 4 this year. She was always reliable, competent, professional and could easily tutor at the AP level. What makes her stand out as a tutor is that she speaks and teaches with a passion for the Spanish language.

Jeanne, 20 lessons with Arianne

Highly recommended tutor

Arianne is helping my son with Spanish. She is on time, personable and prepared. My son said "I highly recommend Arianne! She challenges me each time but helps me find the right answers. I have really improved in my translations and I am more confident".

John, 8 lessons with Arianne

Professional and a Great tutor.

We have had the pleasure of working with Arianne. Her knowledge of Spanish and wonderful skills to adapt with the needs of my daughter have been wonderful. Working with teenagers isn't always easy but, Arianne manage to find ways to help her manage the language by connecting at a level she understood. With that, my daughter was able to do well in Spanish II and actually with the help of a final study session, pulled out a 100% on the verbal final. We can rest knowing she did well this year thanks to your help. Thank you very much for all you did. We would recommend you to anyone needed work in Spanish.
