What is the upside of working with a Memphis Spanish tutor near me?

There are a number of benefits to engaging the services of Memphis Spanish tutors. One of those benefits is that you get access to their expertise. For those unfamiliar with Romance languages, there are aspects that might seem more than a little strange. One of those facets is that their nouns are all preceded by gendered articles. So, for example, a university - la universidad - is feminine, while a garden - el jardin - is masculine. Whether a noun is masculine or feminine is usually determined by the word's suffix, but as is the case with most rules, there are exceptions. Knowing when and where these exceptions take place takes study. Verb conjugation is no simple task, either. There are three broad categories: -ar, -er, and -ir verbs, all of which can be conjugated in five different tenses. While most -ar verbs are considered regular verbs, -er and -ir verbs are a mix of regular and irregular verbs. If this sounds confusing, that's because it is, and we haven't even gotten to adjectives or adverbs yet.

If it hasn't become clear yet, having a helping hand to guide you through this can be nothing but beneficial, and who better to help you through it than an expert? Memphis Spanish tutors know the language inside and out. They can teach the concepts in a way where the lessons build upon one another, allowing you to deepen your understanding as you go. Should you find yourself confused about an idea, your instructor can present it in different ways until it makes sense.

It's this same kind of attention that can be so beneficial as you tackle the most difficult part of learning a new language: conversation. After all, can you really say you've learned a language if you can't understand what's being said to you and respond in turn? The problem is that conversational Spanish is often very different than the Spanish you've learned from flashcards and textbooks, just like the grammar taught in a high school English class is very different than the English in a high school cafeteria. There are colloquialisms, slang, and regional dialects to account for, and the rate of exchange is much faster than what you'll find from most teachers trying to model pronunciation at the front of a classroom.

Here is where Memphis Spanish tutoring becomes so important. Your online tutor can use the video chat function on the Live Learning Platform to engage you directly in conversation, allow you to acclimate to the faster pace of dialogue, training your ear to translate more quickly. The real-time back and forth also allows them to correct you in the moment, preventing bad habits from taking hold. You can record these sessions, giving you the chance to review them at a later date and practice the lessons. Using the document sharing capabilities on the platform, they can help you with reading and writing Spanish and also direct you to other forms of media, giving you an opportunity to practice translating other voices and dialects at different paces on your own time. This sort of preparation can help students at every level prepare for oral exams, but is especially important for high school students getting ready for higher-level instruction that is often delivered in Spanish. It can also help business people prepare for interactions with international colleagues and travelers looking to interact with the locals in Spanish-speaking vacation destinations.

Another benefit to Memphis Spanish tutoring is that it can be customized to an individual's learning preferences. Research has shown that different people have different preferences when it comes to instruction, and when those preferences are met, they pay more attention and better absorb the information being presented. Memphis Spanish tutors can take the time to understand these preferences and cater to them. For example, some students better absorb information with visuals, while others better associate information with words. For the visual student, flashcards with images might be indicated, while the verbal student might respond better to flashcards using English and Spanish words. Though it seems small, this kind of customization can lead to more effective and efficient sessions.

Memphis Spanish tutoring can also be customized to a student's own natural pacing. In a classroom setting, teachers are bound to the limits of the school calendar and the curriculum. They only have a certain amount of time to cover a given amount of material. They can't always afford to slow down or speed things up just because a student is struggling or bored, but a private instructor can. Your Memphis Spanish tutor can move on to the next unit if it seems like you're ready, but if you need extra time on something like irregular -ir verbs, they can allocate additional sessions. Memphis Spanish tutoring is all about you and the pursuit of your success.

Session Summaries by Spanish Tutors

Memphis, TN Spanish tutoring
Today we did exercises to understand the difference between "si no" and "sino." The student did a great job but the best part of it was that he learned a lot of new vocabulary. After that he started to talk about his company using the words that I provided him and that was so good, because little by little he is making sentences that he really will use in his company.

Today we worked more on feeling and emotions using both estar (estoy, estas) and tener (tengo, tienes). They are getting a lot better and should continue to practice these important concepts as they will be very helpful in the future.

We did a grammar review on the past tenses. We briefly went over the subjunctive, and when it's used, in order for the student to recognize its use, but not necessarily to use it himself. Then we did a conversation practice, talking about things in the past.

We covered sentence structure to include all of the elements that we've been working on separately. I gave him sentences to translate to Spanish that he used notes to get through and did a great job. We agreed that he should get his notes organized for quicker reference. I'd recommend he be the one to write them out as this will help with internalizing the material as well as his recall when using them for future translations/ sentence construction.

A revision of last session about learning names of animals and describing them was done. Then the tutor introduced clothing and description of clothing. The student was comfortable and relaxed as he learned to describe what he was wearing. The use of pictures was used to define or give meaning to vocabulary learned. Extra work was left for the student to work on to improve and remember how to describe clothing in Spanish. Today's session was excellent.

The student did an amazing job once again! She is learning at a rapid pace and can now recognize words in her work emails that are in Spanish from Latin America. We introduced the days of the week and months in Spanish. She is doing very well on all of the previous material that was given to her.
