We are traveling to Spain and Elena S. is helping us with our Spanish pronunciation and travel Spanish. She lived in Spain and, in addition to her Spanish language tutoring, is giving us lots of tips on customs, etiquette, and places to see. Recommended.
My son's tutor, Miss Elena, is outstanding. She is a pleasure to work with and makes scheduling flexible, to meet the demands of my son's busy schedule. My son enjoys his tutoring with Miss Elena so much, that he has asked us if he can study Italian (a class that is not even offered at his school) with Miss Elena too!
If you are traveling to Italy and want to be able to order a coffee, ask directions, or just be able to say please and thank you then you need a few hours with Elena. Elena came to our home one nite a week for four weeks, it was the best money we spent preparing for our trip. If you are like us we don't have an unlimited budget and with airfare and hotels we will spend $8-10k for 3weeks so spending $120.00 to learn how to ask a few questions in Italian was well worth the money. In addition Elena has many great stories to tell. We plan on taking her out to dinner when we return to share pictures and stories. Good Luck
I had the pleasure of Elena to begin my Spanish language instruction. She is clearly educated, well prepared for your learning, patient and encouraging. If you have any needs in the Romance languages, Elena will help you.
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.
I went to school in Spain and have been tutoring Spanish for seven years. I have a Masters Degree from Boston College in Spanish literature and history.
I majored in history until I spent my junior year in college in Spain. History, however, has always been my first and lasting scholastic favorite. I always kept up with history courses and received an M.A. In Spanish literature and history.
