The extracurricular classes offer a variety of culturally related activities such as folk dances, chess, arts and crafts, Chinese Kung Fu, natural sciences, and Chinese calligraphy.

Spanish Tutor for Kids
(Central West End)
Are you looking for a fun and effective way for your child to learn another language?
My name is Ana Ruiz Manzano and I am a native Spanish speaker from Spain and I offer IMMERSIVE Spanish classes for children. In my classes we play in Spanish, sing in Spanish, dance in Spanish, cook in Spanish, paint in Spanish, and do lots of other things… in Spanish.
We learn our mother tongue in an immersive environment and we should try to mimic that process for our second language. Children learning a language internalize it more when there is a native speaker talking to them, instead of “translations” or “list of words” in the class. My classes are specifically designed to introduce vocabulary and grammar to small groups of young children via an immersive environment. I use age-appropriate activities and games to engage my students and start them on the path to Spanish fluency. I teach children between the ages of 3 and 8 years old.
Check my website if you want more information and contact me with any questions.
