My mission is to help students learn Spanish quickly and easily while having fun. I've helped numerous children learn Spanish. Let me help your student too!
Does this sound like you?
You want your student to learn Spanish, but you really don't want to have to drive to one more place. We homeschool parents are busy!
You want an instructor who understands what homeschooling is all about and teaches using a variety of methods to help your child learn the language.
You want a teacher that is personable, patient, and knows how to make a subject fun for her students.
You want an instructor who'll invest in your student and make learning Spanish as easy as possible.
As a busy parent, you don't want to have to grade more homework or tests. You want someone else to do that for you.
You want an instructor who has proven success in teaching Spanish to her students.
You want an instructor who's a native speaker and will communicate with her students in both Spanish and English.
You want your student to have the opportunity to practice their Spanish through class interaction.
You want to be able to have direct access to the instructor - none of this having to jump through hoops just to speak to someone.
You want a class that is small and provides them with many opportunities to participate in class and meet new people.
Watch and listen to this student as he describes how he's learning to speak Spanish with Simply Teaching Spanish and why he recommends the Conversational Spanish class.
I got the amazing opportunity to spend a week in Costa Rica on a missions trip as a freshman and then later as a junior in high school. Taking Señora Stacko's Spanish classes really helped prepare me for conversing with the people there. It also invoked in me a love for the Spanish language that has continued to grow. Being able to communicate with the kids and the other people we interacted with while there was invaluable. It meant so much to them that I could start a conversation with them and wanted to learn their language.

How I Set Your Student Up for Success
in Learning Spanish
Your student will learn the elements of Spanish by focusing on speaking, reading, writing, and listening.
Your student will continue to have the same instructor throughout all of their Spanish classes at Simply Teaching Spanish, creating a comfortable, personable environment for them.
Students are assigned homework for additional practice.
The curriculum I use presents the Spanish vocabulary in bite-sized pieces giving your student the ability to learn their words without feeling overwhelmed. Before they know it, they'll confidently put sentences together and speak in Spanish.
Depending on the course your child takes, they'll have access to online flashcards, audio files, and videos.
If your child can't attend a class, they'll have access to a class recording, so they never have to worry about missing a class.
The maximum amount of students per class is 10, so your child will get the attention they need.
I understand there is not a one-size-fits-all type of learning, so I use a variety of methods to teach the language including videos, games, and an easy-to-understand curriculum.
How Students Will Learn
Both Zoom and Google Classroom are used for all online classes. Google Classroom is used to share homework assignments with the students.
The curriculum we use makes learning Spanish vocabulary easy. In just a few weeks, students find that they're able to form full sentences.
Games are incorporated in our classes to test students' understanding of the Spanish language in a fun and entertaining manner.
Spanish-speaking-only videos are incorporated in each class in order to help students learn Spanish through the immersion method.
Take a sneak peek at one of my classes
Students have fun learning Spanish in my classes. Below you can watch as students from the Conversational Spanish 1 class participate in the Story Builder activity.
They work together as a group to form a long sentence in Spanish using vocabulary they've learned in class. The students enjoy this activity because they like to challenge themselves to see how long of a sentence they can put together.
All of these classes are great for beginners, although students do have to take Conversational Spanish 1 before they can take Conversational Spanish 2.
Although the Conversational Spanish classes help prepare students for the High School Spanish class, students aren't required to take those classes in order to register for the High School Spanish class.
Señora Stacko's Spanish classes are hands down the best homeschool classes my daughter has ever taken. I cannot believe how much Spanish she learned and how quickly. She absolutely loved her teacher and looked forward to her online class every week. You will not regret enrolling your child in any classes taught by Señora Stacko! Money very well spent!

KIND WORDS FROM PARENTS & STUDENTS
"Señora Stacko developed a true love of the Spanish language in my daughter."
"My daughter has had the privilege of participating in Señora Stacko's Spanish class for two years. My husband and I are so impressed with how far our daughter has progressed in those two years! Not only does she know a lot of words in Spanish, she actually understands the language and how to correctly speak in Spanish. Best of all, Señora Stacko makes the learning process fun so that our daughter looks forward to class and has never once complained about the homework or the class itself. Señora Stacko has developed in her a true love of the Spanish language and a desire to fully learn and comprehend it."
