Pittsburgh Spanish Tutoring FAQ

If you are looking for a Spanish tutor in Pittsburgh for yourself or your student, Varsity Tutors can get you set up with a skilled private instructor in as little as 24 hours. Maybe your student is just getting started with Spanish in a local school. Perhaps you are studying at the University of Pittsburgh or Duquesne University. It might be that you're trying to improve your job prospects or preparing to visit South America. No matter what your reasoning, working with a Pittsburgh Spanish tutor can be a wise investment.

What are the benefits of engaging the services of a Pittsburgh Spanish tutor near me?

There are a number of advantages that come with studying with a Pittsburgh Spanish tutor, including the fact that you have access to an expert on the language. Learning Spanish is not easy. If you're not familiar with Romance languages, there are some facets than can seem particularly perplexing, like the fact that nouns are preceded by gendered articles. For example, house, or la casa, is a feminine noun, while job, or el trabajo, is a masculine noun. There are rules related to suffixes that help you determine whether or not a noun should be feminine or masculine, but as is often the case with rules, there are exceptions, requiring a great deal of study. The same goes for verb conjugation. There are, generally speaking, three categories: -ar, -ir, and -er verbs, all of which can be conjugated in five tenses. Most of the time, -ar verbs are considered regular verbs, but -ir and -er are verbs are typically a mix of regular and irregular verbs, requiring a lot of memorization and hard work to develop proficiency. If this sounds like a lot, remember that we've yet to touch on adverbs and adjectives.

This is where having a Pittsburgh Spanish tutor on your side can be helpful. They know the language intimately and can explain all the ins, outs, and rules. They can develop lesson plans that introduce the basics and build on them in a way that establishes a strong foundation and deepens your understanding from there. Should you find yourself confused, they can find different ways to explain the idea until it makes sense. This individualized attention can be hard to get in a classroom and can help strengthen your hold on the language.

This attention can be particularly useful as you work on your verbalization skills. It's one thing to study a language on paper, but can you really say you've learned it if you can't speak it or understand it when it's spoken to you? As is the case with any language, what is taught in a textbook is often dramatically different from what is spoken conversationally. There are idioms, turns of phrase, and different accents to be taken into consideration. Spanish spoken in rural Izamal, Mexico is likely very different from what you might hear outside a bistro in Madrid. In either case, though, the rate of delivery is probably going to take place at a faster clip than the delivery of a teacher at the front of a classroom trying to model pronunciation to individuals whose first language is not Spanish.

Here is where working with Pittsburgh Spanish tutors becomes very valuable. Using the video chat feature of the Live Learning Platform, your online instructor can use one-on-one dialogue to train your ear to translate conversations in real-time at a faster pace and correct your pronunciation in the moment, preventing bad habits from settling in before they become a problem. Our platform records these sessions too, so you can go back and review them at your convenience and practice what you've learned at a later date. Using the document sharing function, Pittsburgh Spanish tutors can compile links to other media that can expose you to other regional dialects and give you additional opportunities to get used to conversational Spanish pacing. This sort of training can be indispensable for students preparing for oral exams and is especially useful for high school students getting ready for higher-level courses where most instruction takes place entirely in Spanish. It's also helpful for professionals gearing up to do business with Spanish-speaking colleagues and those preparing to travel to Spanish-speaking nations and hoping to be able to engage with the locals.

Another significant benefit to Pittsburgh Spanish tutoring is that it can be customized to suit the learning preferences of the student. It's been shown that most people respond better to specific types of instruction, and when those preferences are taken into consideration, students pay better attention and retain more information. Pittsburgh Spanish tutors can spend the time necessary to get to know their students and fold these preferences into their lesson plans in order to make the time spent together more effective. For instance, some students prefer active learning, taking what they've been taught and applying it directly to problems in order to make sure they really get it. Others are more reflective, wanting to analyze the lesson to ensure they really understand how it works.

In the context of language instruction and Pittsburgh Spanish tutoring, the instructor might explain regular -ar verb conjugation to the active learner and then give them a list of regular -ar verbs to conjugate for practice. For the reflective learner, they might explain regular -ar verb conjugation, but then model irregular -ar verb conjugation and give them one of each to conjugate, asking them to explain the differences between the two as they work. The ability to customize instruction is something that you can't always find in a classroom and is a major advantage to Pittsburgh Spanish tutoring.

Today I went over the student's study guide with him.

Spanish Tutoring review by Kassandra in Pittsburgh, PA
This week we did a lot of reading! It was very exciting to see the student so engaged. He continues to struggle with his colors and body parts in Spanish, but he is doing better. We reviewed the animals once again, and I saw a huge improvement. We spent about 30 minutes on math, and I can tell he is very strong. It was a great session.
