Private Spanish tutor in Sydney

Teacher joined in May, 2020

ONLINE LESSONS ONLY - ¡Hola! My name is Agustina and I'm here to teach you Spanish and make you want to practice it every day. About me: I'm from Argentina, Buenos Aires. I have lived in Mexico, Spain and I have been living in Australia for the last four years. Living abroad enabled me to meet people from all over the world and learn different variations of Spanish. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Communication and in my free time I write, sing and play the guitar. Teaching is my big passion. In Argentina I used to teach in socially vulnerable neighborhoods how to read and write. I'm a calm person but with a lot of energy. I'm patient, sociable and very responsible and respectful. My classes: I've been teaching for years now and I definitely think the key of learning is interest. That's why we are going to focus on talking about the topics that you are curious about. I adapt the classes according to your needs. The idea is to make them always fun and stimulating, enabling you to improve your pronunciation, grammar and vocabulary. I hope to see you soon!

Teacher joined in Dec, 2018

Hello! Hola! Buna ziua! My name is Adela, a native Romanian speaker also proficient in Spanish and English. Despite having moved to 3 different countries during high school, I have continuously maintained all the languages involved. Whilst speaking full Romanian (mixed with a bit of inevitable Spanish) at home and English outside, I had the opportunity to continue my beloved Spanish at HSC level, achieving 2nd place in NSW and 3rd in Spanish Extension. I am an adaptable, culturally influenced, and dedicated person, who loves making art and learning languages. Currently, I am an animation/illustration student passionate about creating characters and stories. I'm curious to learn about others and I can be very supportive and give heaps of advice. If interested in sharing your experience, your hobbies, and dream careers, your struggles and complaints as well as listen to a mixed accent help you immerse yourself in the beauty of a language... then I can't wait to hear from you!

 Sydney, New South Wales, Australia

Private Spanish classes in Sydney

Teacher joined in Jul, 2020

Let's discover the world through the Spanish Language!!. Online Lessons . Beginners (A1) to Proficient (C2). I am a researcher, journalist and I have been teaching Spanish since 2020. A new identity that boosted the pandemic, and I love it, since the online teaching allows my inner nomadic persona (or roma :)) to move more freely and get to know other's people cultures and knowledges. I have edited books, published scientific papers, essays on newspapers (OpenDemocracy, Diagonal, Salto Diario), or produced contents for radio shows. **Me as a Teacher** I am really into Popular and Libertarian Education. I have a Master on Pedagogy and I follow, among others, Paulo Freire's or Francisco Ferrer i Guardia's pedagogic methods. As these pedagogues, I believe that the educational process should be a mutual relational process. Professors are only facilitators and knowledge is co-produced between professors and students. I dream we can build our utopian worlds through dialogue and direct action. Dialogo Utópico The idea is to create a real bond between the student and the tutor, building a common SAFE SPACE.  We learn Spanish through INCLUSIVE LANGUAGE, enabling anyone to produce their reality and subjectivity with freedom.  We approach together to the understanding of the LOGIC of the Spanish language, through its historical influences, structure and phonetics. We learn Spanish vocabulary and grammar while finding our common PASSIONS: reading or DISCUSSING POLITICS, PHILOSOPHY, LITERATURE, the global pandemic or any of our COMMON real INTERESTS. Generally, and before each lesson, I will suggest to do some research, reading or watching a documentary or film. This will allow us to prepare in advance each lesson. Simultaneously to our lesson, I will transcribe part of our conversation in order to be able to register and discuss together the new vocabulary, grammar, corrections and/or doubts. All materials to support our lessons are provided by me with OPEN ACCESS (grammar books, dictionaries, articles, podcasts, films or documentaries). So no extra money will be needed for the lessons.  **Students language level** All kind of students are accepted, Beginners (A1) to Proficient (C2) **Availability and contact** Lessons are ONLINE and I am mainly available in the afternoons. I am sure it will be easy to find a day and time to do our lessons. Just send me an email or and sms on WhatsApp/Viber/Signal/Telegram to arrange it. **Language skills** Spanish Native Speaker English C1 Portuguese C1 Greek B2 German A2

As a journalist, I have been working for Netflix for the past year and for the main channel in Spain producing Reality Shows such as Temptation Island.

That's why I need to have an extra job, just to make some extra money to be able to pay for my Pilot's degree. I want to help other people to learn a new language with proper speaking and strong solid grammar. Is Spanish an important language to learn? Of course. It's the third most common language in the world and as a Spanish native and journalist, I am able to teach it. Let's have fun meanwhile, you are learning!

ONLINE LESSON ONLY Hola! Quieres aprender o perfeccionar tu español? I'm here to support you! My name is Mirce, I'm a professional Multidisciplinary artist who lives in Berlin for more than 8 years. I love traveling around the world, languages, and everything that has to do with arts, creativity, and culture.

Language has always been one of my passions and I love to combine my creative skills with innovative teaching methods. I speak English (advanced level); German (C1 level); Italian (basic level); and, of course, Spanish, my mother tongue. I have 3 years of private online and in-person Spanish teaching experience. I do believe, we all have different ways to learn a language, some people may be more visual, others more auditive, and some people need to break through fears, shyness, etc. That's why my teaching method encourages a friendly dialogue, visualizing and reenacting real-life situations; while at the same time, actively building a strong base in the grammatical and vocabulary aspects. Of course, everything is according to the level and objectives of my students!

"Carol is a really nice teacher. i needed urgent help for a 1:1 crash course to reestablish and regain my confidence in spanish. her patience and ability to explain the structure of language, its idiosyncrasies, iron out my cringe worthy structures, and set me back on the right track… was perfect for my needs. she totally renewed my confidence and love of spanish… gracias carol 😃. her lessons were tailored to my level. she is full of knowledge and cultural understanding explaining very well the differences between spanish from spain and different countries in latin america. she is super well travelled and is great tutor, and lessons are made fun. i feel very lucky to have found such a nice teacher. i recommend her to anyone having an interest in spanish, whether as a shy beginner or at an advanced ‘rusty’ level with a need to ‘brush’ up. if you love foreign language, they need maintenance and regular use… so, give her a lesson and see for yourself…"

"I chose maria because she was a native argentinian with a lot of teaching experience. i had studied spanish using duolingo but had little practice in conversation. when i told her i wanted to focus on speaking, she was very comfortable with that approach and immediately asked about my goals. she tailored our lessons to conversational spanish and assigned me homework to prepare me for specific conversations. we met several times over a short period. i gained confidence speaking over the course of our time together and was able to speak more easily with my argentinian friends whom i was visiting. maria is a very talented profesora and a delightful human being. i plan to continue working with her from the u.s. i highly recommend maria if you want to learn or improve your spanish. ."

"She is without a doubt one of the best spanish teachers i've encountered, having had the opportunity to work with many before her. what i particularly appreciated was her engaging teaching approach, patience, and attention to detail. additionally, her ability to speak some arabic was a definite advantage, as it allowed her to understand our cultural context and make learning spanish more relatable and enjoyable. her knowledge of arabic enabled her to draw upon relevant examples and analogies that resonated with us, effectively bridging the gap between the two languages. i would totally recommend her and i am sure after one class you’ll be able to relate to my learning journey with her"

Spanish FAQs

What are the Benefits of Learning Spanish with a Private Tutor?

Learning with a private tutor means you get to learn at your own pace, ask questions whenever you choose and get undivided attention. If you join a group class, you may experience Spanish lessons that are either too slow or go too fast for you.

Here are some top benefits of learning Spanish with a private tutor:

Customized Spanish classes

It's true that people have different learning techniques and styles which are in accordance with their learning skills. Although we all have a blend of learning styles, there is a primary style of learning.

For instance, traditional Spanish classes may focus too much on your vocabulary and quizzes. However, if you're not so good with quizzes, you may get the impression that Spanish is difficult or you'll never get to be fluent in it.

When you take lessons with a private Spanish tutor, you can discuss your preferred learning style with your tutor. Also, your tutor will use the best method of explaining difficult topics to you. Private tutoring helps you to be comfortable while learning and not be put under pressure from being with other students.

It offers better results

One benefit of having a private Spanish tutor is that it allows you to concentrate, offering better results. According to studies, where you take classes can determine how much you'd learn. Also, once you have a particular place where you learn, you can be 100% focused and retain more information. After all, the main essence of taking private Spanish lessons is to learn effectively.

Other benefits are:

  • You get continuous feedback from your Spanish tutor
  • Private lessons improve your confidence and self-esteem
  • You can suggest the topics you're specifically interested in learning
  • You get to learn Spanish any day you choose. It offers flexibility
  • You have the full attention of your Spanish tutor

Which Countries Use Spanish as their Official Language?

From Northern and Southern America to Asia and some parts of Europe, there are about 20 countries in the world where people’s mother tongue is Spanish.

Spanish is a global language and it comes right behind Mandarin Chinese as the second most spoken language in the world. The continent with the most Spanish speakers is the Americas. Mexico has about 110 million native Spanish speakers.

Here is a list of the countries where Spanish is used as the official language:

  • Colombia
  • Argentina
  • Equatorial Guinea
  • Chile
  • Dominican Republic
  • Costa Rica
  • Cuba
  • Bolivia
  • Nicaragua
  • Ecuador
  • Paraguay
  • El Salvador

How Many People in the World Speak Spanish?

Like Italian, Romanian, Portuguese and French, Spanish is a Romance language. By Romance, we do not mean it is a language of love (although we must admit that many people find Romance languages romantic), it means that the language evolved from Vulgar Latin.

Spanish has its root in the Iberian peninsula which is situated in southwest Europe (present-day Portugal and Spain). Spanish was formed by the Castilian continuation of Vulgar Latin mixed with the Moors' Arabic dialect. After many years of both languages being mixed, standard Spanish was birthed in the 1200s.

In the world, there are over 450 million native Spanish speakers. Right behind Spanish is English with about 360 million native speakers, making it the third most spoken language in the world. Additionally, Spanish ranks as the third most studied language in the world coming after French and English.

Adding to the number of native Spanish speakers, there are about 75 million people in the world that speak Spanish as their second language. Although the US has about 12 million bilingual Spanish speakers and 42 million native speakers, it is the second country with the largest Spanish speakers (Mexico is first). According to a study, there are predictions that the US will overtake Mexico to be the largest Spanish speaking country by 2050.

One of the 24 official languages of the European Union is Spanish. It is also spoken by a small number of people in countries like Germany, the UK, Italy and France.

Why Should I Learn Spanish?

Without a doubt, there are many things you stand to gain when you take Spanish lessons. Not only is Spanish one of the world's most popular languages, but it is also a beautiful language with an interesting history and culture. Additionally, there are about 20 million people in the world studying Spanish in some capacity.

Looking to add another language to your portfolio? Here are some reasons to learn Spanish:

Is Spanish Difficult to Learn?

Athletes make it look easy on the field but they have put hours into their sport practice and at times where they really felt like giving all up. Like being an athlete, to learn any language at all, you have to understand it's not easy. However, the fact it's tasking doesn't mean it's difficult.

To learn Spanish, you need plenty of practice, dedication, enthusiasm and talent. Also, your knowledge of a second language can determine how easily you learn Spanish. Learning a new language becomes easy if you've learnt one or two languages before.

In addition, your knowledge of a Romance language can help you learn Spanish easily. Spanish is similar to Italian and Portuguese. However, if you're a native English speaker, things can get pretty difficult.

Being a native English speaker shouldn't stop you from learning Spanish. For instance, Spanish and English share similar sentence structures. Also, some Spanish words are easy to coin from English words which are referred to as English-Spanish cognates.

How Soon Can I Become Fluent in Spanish?

Spanish is quite similar to English making it a category 1 language. Owing to this, it will take you about two years to become fluent in Spanish if you study for one hour a day. However, you can choose to speed things up by learning Spanish with a private tutor for more than one hour every day.

Studying for a minimum of three hours daily can get you to conversation fluency in around six months. Summarily, the more time you spend studying Spanish, the quicker you achieve fluency.

While full immersion is advised, you can have fun while learning Spanish by watching famous Spanish movies, travelling to Spain or reading Spanish novels.
