About Evgenia

I have a great passion for teaching. I started teaching Spanish when I moved to Philadelphia some years ago. I volunteered as a Spanish teacher at the International House of Philadelphia. I really enjoyed it, so I repeated several semesters. While teaching at IHP I developed the ability to transition between languages (English and Spanish) with great easy. My love for teaching also increased.
I also had experience tutoring with Temple University students. I participated in a Language Exchange Program where I helped Temple students with their Spanish classes. After that, I joined Wyzant as a Spanish tutor.
I was born in Ukraine but I grew up in Cuba, Spanish and Russian are my native languages. My major is Tourism and Hospitality Management. I studied at the University of Havana, Cuba. I also had teaching experience as a TA during my undergraduate years. My career allowed me to travel to many Spanish- speaking countries, so I could better understand the specifics of the language in each country.
As Spanish teacher I focus on the needs of each student and I develop my classes with this in mind. I work on developing the four basic skills: listening, speaking, reading and writing. I also pay special attention to grammar because it is essential to learn Spanish. The Spanish language is spoken in many countries of different cultures, so I also discuss historical and cultural themes in my classes.
I can offer a free consultation by email before starting the lessons. I can be flexible with my time. While I do have a 24-hour cancellation policy, I offer makeup classes.
I can teach private lessons or group classes. I prefer teaching at cafes or libraries.
I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success in your Spanish studies!!

Excellent teacher!

My partner and I decided to start taking Spanish lessons as a way to prep for our travels to Central and South America and we're lucky to have Evgenia by our side. She's deeply knowledgeable about the Spanish language (among other languages) and approaches the complexities of the language (grammar, conjugations, various tenses, etc.) in a fun, understandable and digestible way.
