As a teacher of Spanish language, my priority and broad aim is to provide my students with the necessary tools to expand their own possibilities. As the world keeps growing, our students need to be able to engage meaningfully with other people in every field. As a teacher I provide a positive atmosphere where students feel welcomed and comfortable inside the classroom. We as teachers know that every student learns differently, therefore I will incorporate different activities that will match every students' potential. Working together when learning a foreign language is important, that's why community building is a priority in my class. Showing leadership and initiative will be encouraged every day for the purpose of motivating others to become the same way. The students have the opportunity to practice and learn the language more easily by making the lessons meaningful and relevant to personal interests. This motivates students to work harder and accomplish their goals more easily.
It is a privilege and a joy to be someone who helps widen possibilities for others. I would describe my teaching as enthusiastic and engaging; from leading students through language mechanics, to allowing them to discover their own voices in Spanish through conversation, discussion and games. I like exploring new ideas and use any new activity or technique that might enrich the learning experience, both for me and for the learner. I find that my students not only enjoy experiencing Spanish through technology but that they also engage with the material more effectively. I believe that new media technology is a powerful tool that both students and teachers of foreign language should be encouraged to explore.

Adrian is a very good Spanish tutor, very patient and works with students well. Always keeps his commitment and does his best to provide creative ways to tutor. Would recommend Adrian for Spanish tutoring.
My college professor made me suffer all semester. Thanks to Adrian I was finally able to catch up and keep up with the lessons. He is very patient and knowledgeable. He was punctual and well prepared. At first, I was afraid to fail my Spanish class but now that’s over; I can say that I enjoy the language and culture that it offers. I just needed the right person guiding me through and making me succeed. Thank you Adrian, I hope you will available to tutor me in the fall when school begins once again.
Adrian is very patient and timely. He helped my son achieve success when he was close to failing. He shared strategies that can be used with any class.
Thank you for taking your time with my son. He was falling behind and kept hitting roadblocks. I just found out that he passed his final exam with an A. You have no idea how happy and proud I am! I know that he was a mess before you began tutoring, thank you so much for getting him back on track!!!
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'm currently a Spanish teacher at a very diverse high school. I'm certified to teach any level from beginner to advanced. I have taught regular Spanish, Spanish pre-AP, Spanish AP and Spanish for native speakers in all levels. I also tutor for college Spanish courses.
