About Lucila

I am a native Spanish speaker. Both of my parents were from Mexico and didn't speak English. I also lived in Mexico City for 6 years and taught English at a private institution while I lived there. I am currently a student at American River College getting an an associates degree in Language, Human Services and Chemical Dependency. I have been tutoring Spanish for several years and enjoy helping people learn. I feel the best way to learn a second language is to start from the basics and practice conversing and reading about something that interests you to expand vocabulary and practice pronunciation and gain confidence.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Spanish

My method of teaching Spanish is to be begin with the basic most important verb in it's infinitive form: "to be." The many forms, such as am, is, are, was, were, have been, and had been, are the building blocks for communicating and can indicate a state of being or location. Take that and include pronouns, and you can begin to communicate.

You can learn Spanish with this foundation, and by continuing to add more vocabulary and tenses you can master great communicating skills.
