LA IS THE PERFECT CITY TO LEARN SPANISH IN:
Spanish Lessons in LA will allow you to do so much more than communication. Language provides a deep connection to other people and their culture. As a student of Spanish classes in Los Angeles you have the unique opportunity to immerse yourself and practice speaking and on a daily basis. Speaking Spanish will, quite literally, improve your life in all spheres.
SLANG IS IMPORTANT!
¡Guey! Spanish is spoken by 500 million people and spread across more than 20 countries. Strommen teachers know all of the dialects, whether Guatemalan, Argentine, Peruvian, Mexican or even Spanglish (that’s what you hear around LA.) But not to worry, we can also teach you formal and business Spanish. While “standard spanish” is important it’s not what the Uber driver will be using. No matter where you travel to, who you speak to, or what your goals are, there is the perfect teacher for you at Strømmen.
Check out our Group Class Schedule here. Strommen Group Classes are a fun, social, and an even more affordable alternative to our private classes. The downside is they are not flexible and follow a set schedule. We organize traditional classes like “Beginner Spanish” as well as workshops like “Taco Truck Spanish” or “Traveller Spanish”. Our classes try to meet at culturally relevant locations since LA is full of authentic places and online. For a full list of our group classes and enrollment info head over to our Group Class Schedule.
$227 Early Bird rate for 12 hours (8 weeks)
With a Strommen teacher you will speak Spanish on the first class. A private session is more effective, efficient and convenient than enrolling in a group class. Your Strømmen teacher will be a perfect fit for your needs and learning style. We equate 10 hours of private classes with a full semester in a traditional college or group class.
Some tutors have specific rates (higher than below), however the below rates are typically available for most of our Spanish tutors.

Hola - Me llamo Karen. Mucho gusto. I was born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina to Armenian parents and immigrated to Los Angeles when I was 10 years old. I’ve been speaking Spanish and Armenian all my life. I graduated from California State University, Northridge with a B.A. in Journalism and Spanish-Language Journalism. There, I was a staff writer for CSUN’s Spanish-language online publication, El Nuevo Sol and wrote stories about the Latino community in Los Angeles. I’m currently a part-time freelance journalist and copywriter. The greatest advantage I’ve attained living in Los Angeles for over 15 years is the ability to switch Spanish dialects. I can easily go from speaking in Rioplatense/Castilian Spanish to Latin American Spanish and this has helped me communicate with people from all over Central and South America! As a former ESL student, I know that learning a new language takes time, effort, and practice. I believe active learning is important, especially for those trying to learn a new language. Being an active learning student will help you pick up the language faster and with ease. I’m excited to hear you speak and write in Spanish. ¡Nos vemos pronto!Locations: Glendale, Los Feliz, Hollywood, Los Angeles, Silverlake, Echo Park, Eagle Rock, Highland Park, Pasadena, South Pasadena

Hola! me llamo Patricia. I was born in Bogota, Colombia and lived in England for seven years. There I learned English and studied advanced levels in sociology, psychology and political history.

I have extensive experience teaching both English and Spanish in a variety of settings, including bi-national centers, private schools, vocational institutions and a college. All these experiences teaching and working with students with all different skill levels, has led me to believe that advanced learning is achieved by tailoring lessons to student’s needs, working with engaging material and building student's self-confidence. I am passionate about learning languages, travelling and getting to know people from different backgrounds. I find teaching to be a very fulfilling career and look forward to working with you.Locations: Los Feliz, Los Angeles, Koreatown, Silver Lake, Echo Park, Franklin Hills, Mount Washington, Beachwood Canyon, Glendale, Atwater Village, Burbank

In addition to my native Spanish, I’m also fluent in English, with an advanced certificate from the University of Cambridge’s English Language Assessment.

As an archaeologist, I have a deep knowledge of not only Mexican, but also Central and South American history, and I enjoy spicing up my lessons by talking about culture, foodways, caló (slang) and the history of Latin America. As a recent arrival to Southern California, I’m excited about contributing my professional expertise to promoting a love of language and greater cultural understanding in my adopted community.Locations: Long Beach, San Pedro, Huntington Beach
Hola, me llamo Javier Fernández, de España. For me the Spanish language with its idiomatic expressions, peculiar pronunciation and hispanic culture is totally normal because I was born in Córdoba, a region situated in the south of Spain. With Spanish as my native and original language I have helped other people for years to learn and improve my own language. Also I have been working as a writer, editor, translator in and to my native tongue. From 2009 I have been living in Dominican Republic, learning the culture and trying to help them as a teacher, working in their writing, oral expression and comphrension, and reading. With this experience and loving teaching, I decided to also teach online using a platform created just for online teaching, with a lot of success and advantages for the learner. I love teaching my Spanish from Spain and I am ready to share my native knowledge with people who appreciate the most widely spoken language in the world.Locations:
¡Hola! My name is Zulivet and I was born and raised in Puerto Rico, otherwise known as The Island of Enchantment. I graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Puerto Rico with a BA in Audiovisual Communications and a Minor in Theatre. I lived in Los Angeles from 2007 to 2015, and then moved to New York. One of the things I love the most about both cities is that almost everywhere I go there's someone who either speaks or understands Spanish. I find that there's always something new to learn and discover about Hispanic culture because it is so rich and diverse! The best part about teaching Spanish is that it gives me the opportunity to take that journey of discovery with my students!Locations: Queens, Astoria, Manhattan, New York
Hi! My name is Maria, I was born and raised in the beautiful city of Montreal. French & Spanish are both my “First language”. Growing up I loved languages and by 6th grade I was trilingual. I’m curious by nature and wanted to discover the world and its beautiful cultures so I decided to travel as much as I could and moved to Guatemala, the land of my ancestors, for 6 months and was able to teach English and French in an Academy. Then I went to Spain to study for a year while doing my Bachelor in Psychology & Sociology. I graduated from the Université de Montreal and relocated to this beautiful city after marrying the man of my dreams (sigh). I’m able to translate for all three languages in different settings, big or small groups, I also have experience teaching young children, teens, adults and now... Puppies! I can’t wait to meet you and start our journey together! A bientôt! Hasta Pronto!Locations: North Hollywood, Valley Village, Burbank, Studio City, Toluca Lake
Hi! My name is Karla. I was born and raised in Southern California and I have been fluent in Spanish and English all my life. I have a B.A. in International Affairs from the University of California, Riverside. During undergrad, I tutored at local elementary schools. I also received a M.A. in Economic and Social Policy while also living in Florence, Italy. Since then, I have recognized the importance of an immersive language learning experience that includes music, film and other media, which I hope to provide for students. This immersive experience will be helpful in facilitating understanding of cultural and linguistic nuances so as to better connect and enjoy a new language. I hope that my classes demonstrate the beauty of Spanish language and culture!Locations: Los Feliz, Downtown, Echo Park, Studio City

Hola, soy Azucena. I was born in Madrid, Spain. I have a Law degree and a Proficiency in English from Cambridge University. I've taught English in Spain privately and in schools and Spanish in London and now Los Angeles with Castilian Spanish or Latin American Spanish. I feel two things help my teachings: first I worked in a Dislexia Centre where I came to understand the different ways people learn, second I passed the Proficiency on my own. I came across my own difficulties in understanding English so I looked for the differences between the two languages to help me and now I reverse the process so my student can understand Spanish. I'm studying the American accent and i'm using the same process to help my students with their Spanish accent. I believe learning is about fun and the confidence. Those are what I try to provide!Locations: Silverlake, Echo Park, Hollywood, Koreatown, Silverlake

Hola! I am Laura. I was born and raised in Barcelona, Spain, and grew up being bilingual. That’s why I soon understood how useful and enriching is learning and speaking more than one language. I graduated in Journalism from Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona, and when I became a journalist I enjoyed using both of my languages, Spanish and Catalan, to deliver information and entertainment. I have a passion for languages and now, as a teacher, I encourage my students to not only learn a new language but to discover all cultural aspects that come with that learning. My approach to learning Spanish is fully organic. You will listen, practice, listen, practice but you will mostly talk, talk, talk…Everyone can learn a new language, so give you and me a chance and you will. Sooner than you think…Locations: Santa Monica, Venice, West L.a., Malibu, Pacific Palisades, Brentwood, Culver City, Westwood

Hi there! I’m passionate about foreign languages, and I want to share my experience and knowledge with my students! Originally from Paris, France, I had the chance to live in several countries including Argentina and Mexico (I currently live in Guadalajara, Mexico). I studied an MBA both in France and in Argentina and, I also trained large teams in big American companies such as Apple, Ford Motor Company or Groupon which allows me today to be very rigorous in my work. On the other hand, I have supported several students and helped them to improve their level of French and Spanish, according to their expectations and personal projects. Finally, I am also a student: I take Italian and Arabic private lessons because my dream would be to be fluent in at least 5 languages! For all these reasons I will be fully able to understand your needs, your difficulties and I would be happy to help you to achieve your expectations. I know that learning a language takes a lot of time and effort and sometimes it can discourage students. My job will be to make the lessons interesting, fun and structured in order to keep your motivation intact and make you achieve your dream of being fluent in one of these two languages!!! During the sessions we will have some fun and challenging tasks to help us reach your goal of speaking a new foreign language. We are going to work, play, learn hard and have fun in the process. I have high expectations for all of my students and I am committed to assisting them with the expectations required of the course! The format of our class will be highly structured and will provide students with the flexibility to choose amongst various projects and topics. In addition to regular projects and homework, I will be expecting all work assigned in class to be completed at home. Lastly, I love swimming, photography, aviation (I am about to get my PPL) and I am a huge fan of Roger Federer! I also enjoy travelling and eating French pastries! I look forward to meeting you soon!Locations: Online
I am a proud advocate of multiculturality. My ancestry and family history have strong intercultural roots (French, Spanish, Italian and Mexican). I remember my grandparents reading me different stories in three different languages and different places: French, Spanish and Italian. The first words I heard were in French from my mom, but my dad always insisted on teaching me both Spanish and Italian to somehow rival my mom culturally, so I did not lose track of my other backgrounds. When I was only 9 months old, my parents and I moved to France. I grew up in a beautiful city, the capital of France's Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region: Lyon. My dad’s job involved moving throughout France, Spain, Belgium, and Italy. Moving to northwestern Mexico (Chihuahua and Baja California) because my father inherited a ranch and a vineyard, did not represent a cultural shock but meeting instead the other part of me I was never able to discover while in Europe. I, thus, embrace cultural diversity, and would always love to bridge cultures through my job as a language tutor along with my mission as an internationalist whose flag is diversity, inclusion, and tolerance. So far, I have two majors: International Relations and French Language and Culture. Also, I am close to graduating with a BA in Italian Teaching, and one more in English Language Teaching. I simultaneously studied two of them and started college at age 16. I am currently writing the thesis of a master’s degree in International Cooperation at the University of Bologna, ranked oldest in the Western hemisphere, among the most prestigious in the world. I began tutoring French, Italian, Spanish and ESL when I was 16 years old. I have taught all these languages for about nine years, and I do not feel like stopping ever in my life. Every time I teach them, I become a cultural ambassador of the countries where they are spoken, which is a huge amount of land in the world. I love spending time surfing, jogging, hiking and occasionally trekking. I also enjoy cooking, listening to music and walking my three beautiful dogs by the beach. I would not tag myself in terms of leisure activities, as I could go from playing some video games, to watching a nice movie while having ice cream, or spending a Saturday rainy afternoon with friends at an art gallery or a music concert. I do not believe in a single teaching methodology. As a recent graduate of a BA in French language, I learned that combining teaching techniques and methodologies results in a more personalized teaching style, always aiming to tailor my teaching to the needs of my students. Notwithstanding, the communicative approach is a solid base of my practice. I was a language learner too. When I was learning English and German in Europe I really appreciated when I had a teacher who made me speak. So, I’ll make you speak. Finally, I highly recommend using “Alter Ego” and “Tendances” for French, “Chiaro” and “Caffè Italia” for Italian, “Aula Internacional”, “Nuevo Español en Marcha”, and “Gramática de Uso del Español” for Spanish and “Top Notch” for English. I take language tutoring seriously.Locations: Online

Hola! I am Mercedes. I was born in Argentina and I was lucky to be able to travel, live and study in many different countries of Latin America (Chile, Uruguay, Bolivia, Colombia, Costa Rica, Panama and Mexico), as well as 6 years in US for my PhD studies in Ecology. All these adventures allowed me to experience and learn the diversity and richness of Spanish language and culture beyond the borders of my own country. Currently I am living in an small old town in northeastern Segovia, Spain where I got to learn the particulars of Castillan Spanish. Teaching is one of my passions. In the last 10 years, I centred on teaching Spanish to kids, teens and adults. In my classes I create a relaxed and fun environment where students can gain confidence working step by step towards their goals. As we move along our meetings, I asses the student engagement and progress, critical thinking, creativity and curiosity and use this to shape and plan future meetings, adjust contents, speed, type of materials to use to keep the meetings interesting yet challenging. Homework and practice tasks are geared to use vocabulary and grammar structures in context and in practical ways (e.g., making videos, short interviews, social media posts, writing short stories, etc). Each person has unique ways of learning and acquiring knowledge, thus I start from the student´s goals, create micro-steps in the form of Can-Dostatements, and use variety of authentic materials like music, videos, documentaries, series, articles, literature pieces, etc. (rather than using a textbook) to include all three modes of communication (interpersonal, interpretive, and presentational). Grammar is incorporated in context and presented in small incremental steps so that is not overwhealming and that helps to use it with confidence. I am also a textile artist working with batik and many other dyeing techniques. In my studio I love to experiment with dyes to create unique and unexpected textures and images on fabric. Also, as I live in rural Segovia right at the edge of a gorgeous natural area, I like to go hiking, birwatching or just hang out by the Riaza river under the cool shade of the poplars. I look forward to meeting you and embark in the spanish learning adventure!Locations: Online
