We use Skype as the platform to deliver instruction. This allows teachers and students to leverage both the Voice and Chat features to maximize the learning experience. You can work with a camera or just voice, although for beginning to intermediate students, we recommend the camera.
There’s even a type of eraser board in Skype. You will need a functioning headset and a Skype account. Skype is the most widely used VoIP service and is FREE.
You will register, stating your level of Spanish, then choose the package of classes you want.
Your classes (60 minutes duration) can be arranged according to your schedule. Our teachers can accommodate your schedule at any hour on any day of the week, regardless of your time zone. You can schedule your classes from one to 20 hours a week, according to the package you have purchased.
When you are registered, your personal Spanish trainer will first contact you by email. You will arrange a mutual time for your classes. At the agreed time you will connect to Skype and then call your teacher. Your first lesson will verify the technology aspects of your classes, evaluate your conversational ability, and discuss plans for your program. You will set a time for your next class, and then the amazing progress starts! Your program will be monitored continuously, and you will be notified when your package is about to end, so that you can make the decision to continue.
Your registration will be promptly acknowledged. Make your payment, and then your lessons begin.

So you’re thinking, “This looks great, but my needs are very specific. I have to pass a professional exam for my work.” Maybe you’re a high school student who needs a high score for an advanced placement exam. We can handle that. By request we have a special category of pricing for those who have extremely specific needs. The cost per class is higher, as your instructor will dedicate much additional time to work with your course syllabus or practice exam. You have an important and urgent need to succeed, and we can make that possible. This package is described as Professional in our price section.
