Our tutors are not only native Spanish speakers, but also have the skills required to teach the language effectively, and the flexibility and smartness to be able to tailor your class to prepare you for any standardized test.
All of our tutors are perfectly capable of guiding our students in a way that maximizes the chances of achieving a high score on their exam, whichever that exam is. Please note that all standardized tests have a lot in common. What varies between them is the level of complexity of their questions, the format in which the questions are asked and whether they have all skills components (grammar, vocabulary, reading, writing, listening, and speaking) or just some of them. We have an excellent track record preparing students for all standardized tests. Our students do pass and achieve the scores that they are looking for provided that they are committed to the process.
All of our Spanish tutors are cream of the crop. They are highly educated, carefully screened and extensively trained in the science and art of tutoring Spanish with our method. They are also energetic, enthusiastic and strongly passionate about teaching and sharing their culture.
