Award-Winning Spanish Tutors in Houston, TX
Michelle "... Being a Cuban-American from Miami, I love the diversity of Houston and getting to try all the different ethnic foods, but my palate is still adjusting to spicy Mexican food! This past year I graduated with my Masters in History from Duquesne University in Pittsburgh where I was a Graduate Assistant. I attended undergraduate school at Franciscan University of Steubenville, where I graduated with the top GPA in my class. I discovered my particular interest in history as an undergraduate student, however I have a real passion for all of the humanities, such as literature, philosophy, theology, and political science. I have tutored a variety of ages and subjects, ranging from third grade math to college level languages..."
Jan "...I truly believe anyone can comprehend, speak, read and write Spanish. It is perfectly phonetic and it is spoken exactly the way it is written. It can be learned quite easily as long as it is explained properly. I travel as often as I can..."

Pooja "...Along with history and mathematics I am also available to tutor Spanish I, Spanish II, Biology, and SAT/ACT prep! I really enjoy tutoring in history and math because many students find these subjects to be difficult. The feeling when a student finally understands a concept that they were previously having difficulty with is amazing, and I love seeing a student's face brighten up when they achieve this new understanding. As many students have different learning styles, I believe that it is important to create an individualized study plan for each student that best fits their method of learning and allows us to make the most of the tutoring experience..."
Frances "I just graduated from Pomona College, in east Los Angeles, and I grew up in northern California and Beijing, China. In college, I majored in English and Philosophy/Politics/Economics, but I am passionate about a variety of subjects including math and Mandarin Chinese. Outside of class, I interviewed prospective applicants in the Pomona College Admissions Office and tutored my peers through the writing center. My tutoring philosophy is that boosting confidence and interest in a subject will lead to your success..."
Judith "... My tutoring method is to make language mean something to the student: make it relatable and practical. What is more relatable than speaking? What could connect people in a more effective way than language? Language makes love, art, science, sport and life possible. I teach language as a key to experiencing life itself..."
Luis "... Additionally, I received a Master of Business Administration from the University of Saint Thomas in Houston. I was born and raised in Colombia until the age of fifteen, making Spanish my native language. I became a Spanish tutor while attending college and continued teaching it through graduate school..."

Hilda "... In languages I also include cultural factors, such as food, music, dancing, to complement the structural part. In art I aim for students to know their materials and techniques so they can free themselves to express their own ideas and visions. I have taught for several years now and have gone myself through the process of learning several languages and art so I understand, from first hand experience, what is is needed to overcome learning fear and frustrations..."
