  1. AMDG Thanks, Nutella! I tried italki first and contacted about a dozen professional tchr and a few of the tutors. It seems that everyone has a standard computer pkg and when I mention my specific needs none of them could commit. If someone just wanted conversational Spanish, though, they're mostly a really good price. I DO plan to use italki for some informal language partners, though! Thanks again!
  2. AMDG I will definitely get with you if my lady doesn't do out! Thank you!
  3. AMDG I checked into both 121Spanish and 121onlineprofessor. 121spanish either couldn't provide tutors on Sunday or were not helpful figuring out a Catholic tutor or materials or something. I can't remember now. 121onlineprofessor, however, is where i'm headed! The person was so helpful on the phone helping me figure out which tutors might be particularly suited to my goals and most familiar with the kinds of materials and literature I would like to use, et c. I viewed some of the videos and one of the ladies just seemed like such a sweetie pie! we've been texting via skype to discuss materials for learning using texts for grammar plus scripture reading and readings of the saints. She has lots of those materials and I can't wait to get started with her. I hope it goes as well as I hope it goes! Thanks for the help!
  4. AMDG Aww! Thanks you guys! HSA didn't work out for me. I compared several and cant remember everything but I believe it was because their tutors can't meet on Sundays. I'm on call 24/6 (every day but Sunday) so I can only to commit to Sundays so . . . we weren't a match. I really appreciate you guys, though!
  5. AMDG Hello, all! It has been ages and ages since I've been around (My kiddo is grown and gone!) but I have a question and I knew you could answer it! The hive mind knows! I am in a peculiar situation. I am an American Sign Language interpreter. I was approached by a priest at an Hispanic parish about starting a Deaf ministry and ASL mass at his parish. Well, we did that. I don't speak Spanish, though, so the (VERY CUMBERSOME) way we do it is this: Father celebrates mass in concurrent ASL and Spanish. An interpreter sits in an alcove with a headset and translates into English. I interpret all the readings, music, responses, et c. Father is learning ASL but celebrates mass by memorization. We make it work but I would like to learn spanish and I have a wonderful, rich opportunity to use it. I have tried learning on my own but . . . Well, I keep not managing to do it. So, I need a tutor. Anyhoo, this is The dream tutor I'm looking for: -- native Spanish speaker -- Mexican/central American -- can focus on teaching BOTH conversational Spanish AND the mass. -- can meet online w/o tons of technical problems -- well organized, good teacher -- well-rounded Spanish instruction (includes speaking, listening, reading, writing) -- includes lots of literature and movies as activities (even as a beginner I want to read fairy tales, et c.) -- can evaluate my skill and meet me where I am. And not Live Lingua. We weren't a match. I do have a strong preference for a person who lives in Mexico or Central America but it's not an absolute deal breaker if s/he doesn't. So, anyone have any ideas? Do you have or know of a spanish tutor you'd be willing to share? C'mon, Hive Mind, don't let me down!
