Hello, my name is Yris Vaca and I'm 46 years old and currently living in United States. I am a native Spanish speaker and teach Spanish. I have been an online Spanish teacher with Verbalplanet.com since October 2008. I can speak the following languages fluently: Spanish, English.

About me

¡Buenos días! I am originally from Bolivia, and have been living in the United States for about 20 years. I enjoy teaching Spanish at the beginning level, because that allows me to see progress in the language. I have had some students who have been learning and not just using conversational Spanish, for years. They are dear friends to me now.

I can teach grammar and make it easy to apply to real situations. Starting with the first lesson, students will be learning something new. I can teach 15 lessons of basic grammar, from there, I go very conversational, and repetitive.

We repeat a lot what we have already covered, because students have to feel confident of what they hear and how they answer.

I can also tutor students who just need one class, to catch up with material covered in class to make it more comprehensible.

Qualifications & Experience

- High School Spanish tutoring.

- College level Spanish Tutoring

- Long term commitment. I prefer to teach you the basic grammar aspect of the language (10-15 classes) and then, let you practice with another tutor, so you get expose to different accents, cultures, and learning material.

If you are afraid of being too late to start learning a new language, you will see that with my classes I am not concerned of how many mistakes you make as long as you are willing to make them (pay attention to children when they are starting to talk, they don't care about grammar, they care about been able to communicate their needs).

For advance students who are looking to practice conversation, I do less spoken correction/interruptions, and write more in the chat for autocorrection. I might stop students if I see that one grammatical concept could be used more appropriately.

Teaching Approach

Students have their own interests when learning Spanish. During our first class, I ask the student to tell me a little about their interest in learning/improving/practicing their skills in Spanish. Then, I suggest a working plan if student doesn't come with own plan.

Qualifications & Experience

- Tutoring one lesson at a time as required by school or college.

- Long time commitment to learn Spanish. I really prefer to teach the basics of it and then let you pick another instructor to get a different accent and material.

Teaching Approach

Lo que busco en los estudiantes es que hablen mucho, por eso comienzo siempre con una ronda de preguntas y de acuerdo al avance que tengamos voy dándoles preguntas en los tiempos verbales que estamos avanzando.

El estudiante es el que pone la dinámica de la clase, por lo general muy informal pero con contenido gramatical.
