             Julieta  
                  Spanish Teacher

Hello everyone! My name is Julieta. I live in Córdoba, Argentina. I have more than 8 years of experience teaching Spanish to children, teenagers and adults. I love teaching! I adapt my classes to my students’ interest and as a Spanish immersion language teacher, I conduct them all in Spanish. But don’t worry, we can understand each other!

I graduated from UNVM (Córdoba, Argentina) as a language and literature teacher. I am also specialized in teaching Spanish as a foreign language. I conducted various trainings on creative writing, literacy, reading comprehension as well as communication.

In my spare time, I like to be with my family, go to the park with my pets and watch series. I am a very curious person that’s why I live reading and learning about the many cultures around the world.

It is my wish to accompany you in your beautiful learning journey.

Let’s start! I am waiting for you!

Vicky is from Buenos Aires, Argentina. She has been focusing on teaching Spanish as a foreign language for over 2 years. Not only does she loves to teach, but she also loves to learn languages. That’s why she speaks fluent English and is learning German. Apart from dedicating herself to languages, Vicky is an actress and is familiar with the different varieties of European and Latin American Spanish and their accents.

She adapts her classes to the student’s level and pace. The most important thing for Vicky is that her students feel comfortable and learn to communicate in a fun atmosphere. She uses authentic materials, such as videos, articles and songs for her students to be in contact with the « real Spanish » from day one and she is open to talk about any theme, from food and travel, to politics and philosophy.

French
 Teacher

Hi, my name is Christophe and I'm a native French speaker from Paris. At the moment I live in Britany. Due to my diverse love for languages, I now find myself studying not only English but also German, Spanish, Portuguese, Japanese and Chinese simultaneously. I have been teaching French for more than 12000 hours around the world to foreigners. 

I have developed my own teaching methods to adapt to the unique needs that each individual may have for language learning and overcoming difficulties. My services are quick, effective and most importantly, personally tailored to your needs.

For you, I will create dynamic learning plans, and share with you various resources and activities that will make learning French fun and interesting, so that you will no longer feel daunted and lost in pursuit of your goals.

My goal as your French instructor is to aid you in accessing your potential for language acquisition, and especially to become comfortable speaking French.

I am entirely at your disposal for further questions and to work with you to set your language learning goals and make your success a reality.

¡Hola! My name is Yendri Rowell. I was born and raised in my beautiful Costa Rica where I lived until the summer 2006. I moved here with a college program to learn English but life had a surprise for me (my amazing husband). Later that year in 2006 I met my husband and shortly after that we got married in March 2008. We settled in Madison, CT. I love this town and I love taking my fur baby (tea cup poodle) for walks at the state park or at the surf club. I also love to ride my bike to the beach and enjoy a good book by the water.

I earned my Early childhood degree in 2010. I have been working in different Children’s Centers all around the shoreline since then. I love what I do. Teaching Spanish has been the most rewarding work for me. I love seeing how happy and how much fun children have in my Spanish class. They learn without knowing they are learning and they are just having fun. I teach Spanish in a dynamic style, creating an active learning environment, which actively engages students and makes the content more comprehensible.
