Hola! Spanish is my native language. I love teaching Spanish!
I feel a great sense of pride and achievement each time my students see their Spanish improving significantly. There is such great joy in seeing my students take pride in sharing with others how much their Spanish has improved.
Increase in Spanish language skills, reading and grammar is key in learning the language. I have over 23 years experience teaching Spanish, and 10 years experience translating and interpreting at the United Nations Conferences. I use several techniques that truly help my students advance in their language acquisition. I have full knowledge of the Indiana State Standards for Spanish in all levels.
I have visited several countries and have learned a lot from seeing the way in which people learn from each other regardless of where they are from or what language they speak. People are often very excited to speak to others even when knowledge of the language may be difficult for them. They continue trying to communicate at any cost. The more we try, the more we gain!!
I have taught Spanish to students ranging from pre-kindergarten, elementary school, middle school, high school and college level adults. I use techniques like Total Physical Response (TPR) and Story Telling to engage my students interest in learning the language. I use several other unique ways to work with my students in order to increase their language learning.
I will first work with the student to access their learning style and proficiency level so they can achieve the most from each tutoring session. I will keep parents updated on our progress and encourage the parents interest and involvement in the process.
We can meet at the library or at the school.

She helped my son study for his tests. She broke down the material so he could really understand why and when to use each verb tense. Great tutor!
Viola has been a marvelous tutor. I watch the lesson from across the library and my daughter just lights up with smiles, laughter, and delight. She's progressed remarkably quickly through the book due to the lessons. I highly recommend Viola as a Spanish tutor. She is thoughtful, kind, and motivating. My daughter wishes to continue to meet with Voila to take the coursework beyond what is presented in school.
Viola has been wonderful! She is patient, very knowledgeable, and extremely encouraging. The techniques she has been using to teach our freshman daughter have helped in so many ways. Our daughter's grades are better and her confidence has risen. She is now enjoying learning a new language.
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.
