About Merry Sara

I just recently moved back to San Jose from North Carolina. For the past year in NC I was a Spanish tutor at Wake Forest University for student athletes and also did private ESL classes. Spanish is the one subject which I am extremely passionate about along with ESL. I lived in Bilbao, Spain from 2009-2015 teaching ESL. I have my TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages). I am constantly surrounded by Spanish since my husband is from Bilbao, Spain. I am a young, energetic and caring teacher. I like to make my students feel comfortable speaking either in English or Spanish. I use a variety of methods from using visuals, grammar tricks, fun activities and making my students feel confident in their target language either English or Spanish. I am very proud that I can make my students feel comfortable with the level of Spanish/English they need to know for school/work/leisure. I have lived first hand experience why Spanish is so important and fun. I will pass that on to your child and help make them excited about learning Spanish. I have also taught a variety of conversation classes. I know how to make you feel confident about communicating in a second language and these classes tend to be more geared towards adults. I love what I do and my goal is to make sure you are satisfied with every class we have together. I just recently moved back to San Jose from North Carolina.

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.
