Hola estudiantes! Me llamo Samuel. I'm a tutor in Atlanta, & only 6 years ago I was in your shoes. The best part of my sessions is that I understand the woes of studying Spanish but I will push you to

Methodology

My teaching method is always adapted to my students needs. In my first session, I like to learn about my students' backgrounds and learning styles. After the student and I collaboratively come up with a learning style that best suits them, we complete priority assignments and then, I assign them areas to practice for the following session based off their performance that day. The idea of this method is that the student has a personal goal to accomplish for each session that will improve their overall comprehesion and performance while maximizing the time in each session since we will not need to spend excessive time studying what they have already studied and can focus at the task at hand.

Background

In the university, I majored in Spanish with an emphasis on Spanish Grammar, Oral Communication and Spanish-Latin American Literature. During my time, I receieved the highest grade in every class while tutoring students from beginner-level Spanish to Advanced Conversational Spanish. I also studied abroad for 5 months in Costa Rica, where I lived with a host family and studied at a Costa Rican university.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : $ 26/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : $20
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : $13

Details

If the student does not cancel within 24 hours of the scheduled session, I will charge them 50% of the session. For example, if the session cost $20 and is for an hour and the student cancels less than 24 hours before the session. They will be charged $10. This policy is set in place because canceling short notice hinders me from scheduling other clients.
