WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Dr. & Mrs. Bloomstone
Upon our daughter switching schools, we were faced with the need to fulfill one year’s worth of Spanish requirements. Our daughters' new school recommended we contact Rosi Freeman. Though extremely busy with her own teaching schedule, Rosi not only agreed to complete the year’s curriculum during the summer months, but she made herself available to teach our daughter in our home. Rosi created a warm and effective teaching environment in which our daughter flourished.
Mrs. Freeman provided my son with the confidence to speak Spanish fluently...We are forever grateful for mentorship and highly recommend her as a teach and a tutor of the Spanish language.
Shelley Detwiller DiGiacomo, Attorney
Rosalinda has been helping me to improve my Spanish language skills for several years. Her depth of knowledge of not only the Spanish language, but also Spanish culture, history and literature makes for endlessly intriguing and informative lessons. My conversational skills have improved so dramatically that I am now finding professional opportunities using my Spanish. Rosalinda is such a skilled instructor that if one method of learning is not working for you (in my case a textbook), she will find a method that will work better (in my case literature, news articles and magazines). Rosalinda is a wonderful tutor and an incredible person. I recommend her highly and without hesitation.

How do you find a great Spanish language instructor?
Finding a language tutor that matches your learning needs requires that your first know what and how you want to learn. Are you looking for motivation to complete your coursework each week? Or are there specific language functions you need help with such as conjugating verbs or grammar? Or are you seeking to develop a more natural sounding native accent?
Ask yourself, how do you learn best? Do you want a more interactive experience or one that requires more independent study with dedicated sessions for questions? Are you more of a visual learner or do you retain information better with auditory learning? Would weekly meetings be enough or should you have more frequent sessions?
Once you have a better understanding of what you want from your educational investment, now you can ask the right questions to find an instructor that meets your learning needs.
Questions to ask when searching for a Spanish tutor
To maximize your educational investment, you want to find an instructor that will provide the environment and tools that accelerate your learning style. Ask these questions of prospective instructors:
Why did you decide to go into teaching?
What experience do you have teaching others at my age/learning level?
How do you prepare for class?
Do you require homework?
What options do you provide for individual and group learning?
Score your conversations not only on their answers but on intangibles:
Did they listen and answer your questions with empathy?
Did they take time to assess your level before prescribing a learning plan?
Did you like them?
How to maximize your learning from language tutoring in Spanish
When you engage a language tutor, tell them your goals and what you expect. Let them know how often you want to meet, what you want to work on, how you want them to work with you and what tools you want to use. Establishing up front how you want your learning to proceed will ensure you have a course of action to accomplish your goals.
The instructor will have a prescribed syllabus and study materials. You can augment your learning by:
Listen to Spanish podcasts
Read Spanish books
Keep a few flashcards around your home to practice a group of words each week
Write letters in Spanish to friends whether you send them or not, to practice
Get informal groups of other students together in person or on video chat to practice what you’ve learned.
