Hi, my name is Jeffrey. I’m a native English speaker from the United States. I have been teaching and assisting English language learners for years and have the necessary skills to help learners at all levels to achieve fluency. In addition, I have also achieved a conversational level of Spanish fluency. If you are interested in Learning Spanish and are at a basic or intermediate level, I can most certainly assist.
The Reason Why You Have Not Achieved Fluency
Countless times I have heard the same story, English language learners who have been studying English for years in a traditional class setting but still have trouble understanding and speaking English. The reason for this is that all too often traditional schools and Language centers use the same cookie cutter approach for all students. These students are not receiving customized lessons that are specifically designed to develop their weaknesses.
My lessons cater specifically to your needs. I will continually evaluate your skill level and adjust lesson plans to specifically target your weaknesses. I also encourage and coach my students to immerse themselves in the language they are trying to learn. I will suggest ways for you to meet friends who speak the language, recommend TV shows, movies, music and books for you to listen to as well. With the combined approach of custom lessons and language immersion, I’m certain you will be able to achieve your desired results.
Personalized lesson plans tailored specifically to your needs
Each tutoring session with me is tailored specifically to your weaknesses. Before we start lessons I provide all students a FREE 1-on-1 assessment in order to gauge their current level of fluency. From there I create custom lesson plans that are specifically tailored to your needs.
What you will learn
My teaching approach is based on 3 core areas of focus:
2. Grammar and Conjugation
3. Listening and Conversation
These are then same 3 areas I focused on in order to achieve fluency in my second language, Spanish. In your Free on boarding session I assess your level and ability in each of these areas, then create lesson plans that directly address your weaknesses. This approach ensures that you receive lessons focused on your needs and that you are not wasting your precious time and money relearning and focusing on things
I truly care about each of my student’s progress. I value your time and money, and you should too. If you feel that you are not receiving the results you desire, simply let me know and I will fully refund the last three (3) tutoring sessions we had.
