Bio

I have been living in San Jose for the past year and currently teach ESL and Spanish at a local academy. Two years ago I lived in NC, where I was a Spanish tutor at Wake Forest University for student athletes and also did private ESL classes. I have also taught ESL for the past nine years and I am currently getting my credential at SJSU to teach high school Spanish.

I have been living in San Jose for the past year and currently teach ESL and Spanish at a local academy. Two years ago I lived in NC, where I was a Spanish tutor at Wake Forest University for student athletes and also did private ESL classes. I have also taught ESL for the past nine years and I am currently getting my credential at SJSU to teach high school Spanish. 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.

Great Spanish Tutor!

Merry Sara was willing to help me with my Spanish essay. She was able to point out some awkward word choice only native speakers would be able to do. I highly recommend her.

Dominic, 1 lesson with Merry Sara

Nice tutor with rich experience

I came from Japan and now I am having a regular English lesson with Merry. She has lots of experience in teaching languages so she knows how to teach them and adjusts the way for each student. In my case, she focuses on my accent and fluency improvement and I am really satisfied with the lesson. Enjoy lessons with Merry!

Amazing Tutor!

Merry has been teaching us English as a second language for several months now. She is patient with us and very knowledgable! She works with our accent and many people have noticed a very positive improvement in the way we speak. Highly recommended tutor! She is outstanding!

Ly, 11 lessons with Merry Sara

Very knowledgeable and passionate!

In just a few lessons Merry Sara has already proven to be a great tutor. I believe the necessity of Spanish for me varies from the usual need of a tutor as I need it to be able to communicate effectively in the construction world. The first day she was well prepared and had everything structured around my needs. On top of that, she seems genuinely excited to be doing what she does! I will continue lessons and I feel like I will be able to communicate in no time. Thanks Merry Sara!

Good Teacher

She is a very good teacher who clearly has a knowledge of Spanish and is deeply interested in it. She also wants to see the best in her students and gets the best out of them while still maintaining a positive outlook and a happy nature.

Rishabh, 1 lesson with Merry Sara

Well prepared and very knowledgeable

My son is now excited about Spanish and ready to learn more. He feels more confident with the conjugation of juicy verbs. Awesome session.
