About Skylar

I am 24 years old, and live in the Ogden area. I am a full-time Spanish teacher at Bonneville High School with a degree in Spanish teaching from Weber State. I am fluent in the language. Although there is no avoiding books and boring grammar principles, I try to avoid as much of the "boring" as possible by implementing different learning activities.

I love to spend time with those learning Spanish. I feel your pain, because I've been there before! There's no need for you to keep struggling with homework assignments or tests. I tutor home-schooled children, and those taking junior high, high school and lower division college classes.

Is your family getting ready for a vacation where Spanish basics are needed? Contact me and I will make sure you are confident before you leave. I will share with you the tricks that helped me break the barrier and really speak and understand the language!

I also have experience in teaching Spanish speakers who are serious about learning English. I like to teach small groups at a time (preferably 1-5), so I can spend time with each individual. I focus on all aspects of the language: vocabulary, grammar, pronunciation, reading and writing. The curriculum depends on where you are with the language, so that you are learning at the level that will best benefit you. If you know of a Spanish speaker interested in learning English, this is a good opportunity for them to break away from classes of 30+ people, and receive more one on one attention than they ever have before.

Tengo mucha experiencia enseñando clases de inglés a los hispanohablantes. A mí me gusta enseñar a los grupos más pequeños (prefiero 1-5), para que pueda prestar mi atención a cada individuo. Incluyo todos los aspectos del idioma: el vocabulario, la gramática, la pronunciación, el leer y el escribir. La enseñanza depende en tus habilidades actuales en el idioma. Quiero que aprendas al nivel que mejor te beneficia. Deja las clases de 30+ personas que has probado antes. Vas a recibir más atención personal que jamás has experimentado. Mándame un mensaje para que te ayude.

Hope to hear from you soon!

Approved subjects

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.

ESL/ESOL

I spent a couple years in Southern California, about 30 minutes from the border of Mexico. I was with an organization that assigned me to learn Spanish and work 24/7 with people in the language. That area is very heavily populated with Spanish speakers who want to learn English. During my time there, I was in charge of teaching English classes to groups of at least 15. We had a class for beginners as well as a more advanced class, so I am used to teaching to the needs of different skill levels.

Spanish

If you are struggling with homework or tests, I would love to spend time with you and get those scores up. It doesn't mean you have a bad teacher; it's just that teaching a language to a large class is a very hard thing to do. It really requires one on one time, so that you can learn your way, and at your level. That is what I can offer. I can address the things that you struggle with specifically, without trying to address the needs of twenty other students at the same time. Schedule a session with me and see what you think. You will see results.
