About Julia Yolanda

I look forward to helping you learn and improve your Spanish. Whether you have years of experience or no experience at all speaking Spanish, I can help you learn authentic Spanish. I am a big believer in learning by practice -- listening and responding. Nonetheless, I will spend appropriate periods of time with you on grammar and other academic aspects of language to establish the necessary foundation. I teach through conveying correct pronunciation, natural phrasing, useful expressions and common conversational Spanish idioms.

I was born and lived most of my life in Bogota, Colombia. My approach to teaching Spanish is to bring the culture and every day feel of the Colombian people to the conversation. The most effective way to learn Spanish, or any language, is the same way that you learned your first language: listening and repeating; listening and responding.

I generally conduct lessons from my home in Reston via Skype. The first session or two with any student is usually conducted in person at some mutually agreed upon location.

Thank you for your comments. Dylan is a pleasure to work with. He has a great sense of humor and seems quite comfortable regarding the sessions, but at the same time gives every appearance of really enjoying the learning and every indication of wanting to become proficient at Spanish.

I currently have tutoring sessions with Julia via Skype. Skype has been an excellent way for me to work around my busy schedule. Julia works with your schedule and is very prompt to answer any questions or concerns. As far as teaching, she first starts off by determining your proficiency level and goes from there. She doesn't just throw grammar at you. She works with who you are and your goals. In
