Foreign Language Tutors for All Grade Levels:
Spanish, French, Mandarin, Japanese, Hebrew, Latin and Greek
Most students are required to take a foreign language in either middle or high school, if not sooner. Regardless of the language, these courses can be difficult. The team at Teachers Who Tutor is here to help.
If your child is having difficulty mastering a new language, you have come to the right place. Our foreign language tutors are experts with years of experience supporting students learning new languages including Spanish, French, Mandarin, Japanese, Latin and Greek. Some students have difficulty with memorization of vocabulary, others with conjugating verbs in different tenses, correct pronunciation, or understanding grammatical nuances. At Teachers Who Tutor, we offer language tutors online and in-person for all levels of proficiency and across ages. Our teachers have experience supporting students with online language lessons and with different platforms so that they learn the necessary fundamentals to gain proficiency or mastery of a new language.
Our tutors first assess the goals for each individual, and ensure that the building blocks are in place in terms of vocabulary and fundamental grammatical concepts. They reinforce effective study habits so that each student has an opportunity for regular practice speaking, listening and writing the new language, as repetition is integral to internalizing new languages. Whether a student is taking language practice online or in person with our tutors, the goal is always to make it fun and engaging so that students can absorb as much of the language as possible.
Language is a crucial way to learn about and immerse students of all ages in a new culture. Exposure to a new language from a young age is optimal from both a linguistic and cultural standpoint, but rest assured that it is never too late to learn! Perhaps you have tried a program such as Duolingo, Italki or Babbel, and you’re looking to supplement your independent work with support from a master teacher. We offer private 1-on-1 classes and small group classes if your children and a few of their classmates would benefit from additional support.
The best way to learn foriegn languages is to live in a culture where they speak that language, and if you have access to foriegn exchange or study abroad programs, we highly recommend you take advantage of those opportunities. That said, if your family is in the more common situation of looking to supplement weekly routines with shorter periods of language immersion, one-on-one language tutoring, whether in-person or on line is a great way to go. Our tutors are fully bi-lingual, fluent speakers who have years of experience meeting each child where they are and building from the ground up, so conversation can begin immediately and lead seamless to reading and writing.
