University of Concepcion (Graduate Coursework)
I am a native speaker of Spanish from Chile. I graduated from University of Concepción and taught Early Childhood Education in Chile. I have been teaching and tutoring Spanish to high school and college students as well as adults in the Atlanta area for more than nine years. I am available to practice conversation skills or to work toward being fluent in Spanish. My teaching style is interactive, fun and stress free and can be adapted to fit individual needs and interests. I am flexible and enjoy preparing specific lessons for each student. I particularly enjoy working with students who are passionate to learn the language for their own use and committed to excellence. I focus on helping my students understand grammar, writing, reading, speaking, pronunciation, and conversational skills. Mispronunciations are acknowledged, corrected, and revisited until learners have memorized my respectful corrections. As many of my students do, you will soon gain confidence and be successful in achieving your language goals. Your success is my success. We can schedule our lessons to take place within a radius of 15 miles from zip-code 30062.

My son loves Spanish, and Elisa worked with him this summer to practice his conversation skills and help him work toward fluency. She tailored the sessions to his interests and current activities and gave him suggestions to work on specific areas on his own. She was great, and he'd definitely like to work with her again.
Mrs. Elisa is the best Spanish tutor out there! She also appears on time and is very patient. I plead you to ask Mrs. Elisa for her services to improve your grade.
Often my son has last minute request for tutoring support and Elisa doesn't disappoint. We appreciate her responsiveness and desire to know the specific subject material so she can be as prepared as possible. She cares about the student and truly desires to increase their knowledge of the language and culture.
Elisa was a wonderful tutor. I asked for her help last minute and she was very flexible with her times. I had a final over three chapters the following week and ended up getting a 92% on the final and an overall 95% in the class. If it wasn't for her I would have failed without a doubt.
Thank you for your wonderful comments. It was a pleasure working with you. You are an exceptional student and responded so well to our session, there was no doubt in my mind that you would get an excellent grade.
Elisa is a fantastic tutor! My main goal was to be able to converse better in Spanish. I was impressed by how Elisa personalized the sessions so that they were perfect for what I needed. I always looked forward to my sessions. Elisa made them lighthearted and fun while at the same time I made steady improvement.
She was always encouraging and made me feel optimistic - which is so crucial in language learning. Elisa seems to me like the type of tutor who could work with persons of any age group and give them the confidence to increase their level of ability in Spanish.
Thank you, Lynnda, for your excellent review. I am thrilled that you are so happy with our sessions. You have been an excellent student and I am always encouraged when my students make noticeable progress, which you have done. Keep conversing, you know that practice makes everything better.
As an adult learning a new language you always go in with a little bit of trepidation because we're all so afraid of sounding silly. Elisa is great at making sure you have the basics down first before moving on to more complicated things, so your confidence increases as you slowly start understanding more. She is a very patient teacher as well, and a pleasure to work with. I am surprised at how much I've learned in only 6 lessons.
Thank you, Noel, for your complimentary remarks. It is a pleasure to work with a student who is motivated and responsive to lessons like you are. I always look forward to our tutoring sessions.
Elisa has worked wonders with our daughter. Her grade in Spanish has gone from an "F" to a "B". Elisa is kind, funny encouraging, and oh so flexible. She is GREAT!
Thank you, Leslie, for the unexpected and refreshing feedback. It is my pleasure to work with her. I think we make a very good team. So glad she will achieve what she wants. I am so proud of her.
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.
My Spanish tutoring is personalized. I am committed to what I do. I am an educator by profession and it is my passion as well. I enjoy being a tutor in my mother tongue.
