¿ Tú hablas Español ? Spanish Tutors in Houston are Here to Help
Our current times are rapidly changing and gone are the days where speaking another language is optional. Learning Spanish in a classroom setting can be tough. Spanish teachers are often focused on vocabulary, conjugating verbs and translating passages from English to Spanish or vice versa. Many times, students can fall through the cracks in this ‘one size fits all’ approach to Spanish. At Suprex Learning Center, our Houston area tutors are native Spanish speakers who are fluent in writing, reading, and speaking Spanish. Our tutors have a proven track record of success and are highly qualified to teach these skills to your child.
Our tutors are specially trained to assess your child’s Spanish skills and formulate a specialized plan to meet their specific needs. If you child needs help memorizing, absorbing or speaking Spanish, the Suprex Spanish tutors can create a program to improve their fluency.
Often in middle and high school, students don’t get enough personal attention or practice in speaking Spanish. It is common that a child can complete four to five years of Spanish (even taking AP Spanish) and they are still unable to hold even a simple conversation. Speaking Spanish is important in the classroom setting and it is also required on the SAT Subject tests and the AP exam. Being able to respond appropriately in Spanish and create your own sentences is a key focus of the Suprex Houston Spanish tutoring.
Spanish Standardized Testing with our Houston Spanish Tutoring
AP exams and the SAT Subject tests both assess written and verbal competency as well as grammar, vocabulary and basic comprehension. Adding a personal tutor to your child’s study schedule is a great way to be thoroughly prepared. Having a private tutor allows your child to have the benefit of a personalized experience with a fluent Spanish speaker who can give personal attention to their weaknesses and strengths.
The SAT Subject tests offer Spanish as an option to your SAT. The exam has 85 multiple choice questions and is broken down as follows:
