What Our Spanish Lessons Include


w

Conversational Fluency

Our Spanish tutors will speak Spanish with you at your level (beginner or advanced) to help you grasp how to speak and understand the language comfortably through a method called TPR — Total Physical Response.

Even if a student’s vocabulary is limited because of their level, our goal is enable them to speak and understand everyday Spanish and eventually reach conversational fluency.

If a student’s an advanced Spanish-speaker looking to brush up on their skills, they’d have a more diverse set of materials and conversation focused Spanish Lessons; we’d dig into complex grammatical concepts and apply them to Spanish conversation. However with a beginner, we’d start out with a textbook and workbook and use other resources, such as Quizlet as needed. 

Cultures & Dialects

Unlike computer software, our Spanish tutors are knowledgable in regional and linguistic differences. By exposing you to different cultures and dialects, you will have an edge on the competition and have more opportunities to converse. 

Cultural and linguistic differences can make for some uncomfortable situations if one’s not familiar with a region’s customs and way of speaking. When one’s only familiar with one accent or one dialect, conversation can be hindered. Developing personalized coursework that gets you accustomed to the traditions and voices of people of many regions is something we take seriously. 

Culture is one of the Learning Standards.

Lessons How You Want Them

Tailored Lessons

Every student is a unique individual; therefore, we tailor each lesson plan according to every student’s differing needs. Our Spanish Lessons rely on two key factors: a small setting and the opportunity for our Spanish tutors to individualize that setting.

We’re adaptable. Period. 

Spanish Tutoring by Students customizes every lesson for every student. As we get to know where you’re struggling and see how you want the sessions to be conducted, our individual learning strategy for you will constantly be developed and improved; we’ll fine tune everything to you. Your Spanish tutor will take notes based on the last session and draft a new lesson plan. Through this, we can adjust to your learning styles and find activities and exercises which guide you toward conversational fluency in the best and most innovative way. Lesson plans are characterized by who you are and what you want. 

We’re flexible. Guaranteed. 

If you get ahold of us four hours before you want your session, you have a 90% greater chance of arranged into our schedules. Sometimes people’s chaotic schedules don’t allow them to plan their free time in advance; so, take advantage of our flexibility, especially during the summer semesters. Also as previously mentioned, we’ll come to you to tutor almost anywhere in Kalamazoo, Portage, or their surrounding areas.

Individual or Group Lessons

Learning with our Spanish tutors in-person keeps you motivated to improve or learn Spanish. 

Regardless of one’s experience with Spanish, putting them in a one-on-one or small group setting makes it easier for us to teach and easier for a student to learn. Our small and individualized setting is the most effective and thorough way to learn a language, because the program is made to fit individual personalities and learning styles.


Ready to Travel

With the conversational skills you will acquire, you’ll be able to tackle everyday situations in Spanish. 

Our Spanish Tutors will work with you on a deadline and give you the most valuable vocabulary and conversational fluency possible in a given timeframe. The quickest way to get you up to speed with your Spanish on a deadline is to get you speaking and understanding it by means of dedication to completing rigorous course content.
