About Susana

I am a native Spanish speaker from Bolivia, South America. I have been teaching Spanish for more than three years here in Savannah, Georgia. I have taken several courses to enhance my educational and professional knowledge towards improving my teaching abilities and techniques in Spanish as a Second Language (ELE) at the Hemingway Institute in Bilbao. This institute is very prestigious, and it has the most successful methodology for teaching Spanish as a Second Language in Spain. It is part of a network of the Institute Cervantes, which is a cultural program dedicated to the advancement of teaching the Spanish language.
Currently, I am preparing myself for the next level of teaching Spanish students in preparation for their needs in the business, medical and legal fields.
I have education, experience and background as a journalist, life coach and facilitator, which would be advantageous. This knowledge and experience empowers me to be a motivated, passionate and encouraging Spanish teacher.


I specialize in tutoring. I have extensive experience in teaching teenagers and adults at all levels: beginners, intermediate- or advanced-level, depending on need. I will also set up specific exam preparation classes. I cater my curriculum closely to the individual student’s needs, so feedback, verbal communication, written assessment, and testing help to determine the best curriculum for that particular student. I teach with a new teaching methodology called, “Communicative”, and I design personized instruction for the different needs. I use fun and interesting curriculum development and creative teaching strategies to encourage a student's understanding for content and real life application.
I put an emphasis on conversation because this tends to be the most challenging for students to use and understand. By doing this I see more development and improvement of students’ skills.
I can explain clearly the differences between English and Spanish grammar, such as subjunctive or ser/estar, and all of the past tenses. I also teach colloquial language to immerse my students 100% in the target language. (Colloquialism is the use of informal words or phrases that the people from that region, area, or society speak in their ordinary lives). The grammar with this methodology can be very simple, and I complement the lessons with many exercises by mail. I have activities, assignments, materials, packets, and examples, supported by multimedia, which comes from Spain. It is all very interesting, encouraging, fun, and hands-on learning-based curriculum.

When I meet with my student the first time, we go over the objectives. If there are any questions, we can discuss them at that time. I try to be somewhat flexible as I understand everyone has a busy schedule. I do, however, have a 24 hour cancellation policy, and I offer makeup classes. I teach in a public location, and I can also teach at a student’s home. I teach only private lessons.
I look forward to hearing from you and helping you move towards proficiency in Spanish, build cognitive skills, and have fun in the process. Let’s achieve your success.

I use both verbal and written evaluation and the content of the teaching material so you can continue to grow and improve and to get challenging, informative and educational material for my students to grow from.
