Introduction: I'm originally from Argentina and I have been teaching Spanish and English for more than 17 years, I have live also in Mexico for several years and I traveled all over "Latino America". I believe It's essential to learn Spanish from a native speaker teacher, I have been in the United States for a long time and English is my second language. I am a Certified Spanish Tutor.
My primary goal is to provide the highest-quality language to my learners in a fun, nurturing, and culturally-rich environment.
All the instruction is given in Spanish, Once the class begins, I'll speak mostly in Spanish, this will force you to learn through listening and speaking, of course, I'll explain in English some of the more difficult concepts. Essentially you will discover the meanings of words and phrases in the context of real-life situations and not just by translation. Practice is the key to learning Spanish for that reason you will practice your conversation skills as often as possible. This will allow you to eventually "think" in Spanish. When you can do this, you will know that you're really learning.
My students' ages vary. I have taught beginners (as young as age 8) as well as adults who work with corporations sending managers, directors, and senior executives that travel to Spanish speaking countries, and also with government employees that for different reasons needed to learn Spanish. I have successfully taught adults to comfortably speak conversational and professional Spanish. I also work with business executives as an interpreter.
Level taught: beginner, intermediate, advance and corporate. I design my lessons to varying students' goals. I can help with accent correction, pronunciation and fluidity, some slang if you need it. I also teach grammar, vocabulary, assist with readings, writings, translations and interpretations. I find this approach works for varying situations, and I utilize differentiated instruction. Everyone learns at a different pace. My goal is to challenge you and make you comfortable as I present the material in a way that you'll find it interesting as you grasp the language. I hope you will understand Spanish, feel comfortable in using it in the classroom, casual business interaction, or in general conversation if you are planning a pleasure or business trip to "Latino America" or Spain.
I am flexible with hours, days and locations. We can meet in a coffee shop or at your place if it's in a convenient area. I am also available to teach classes remotely and online.
I can also help you to compare United States with the "Spanish speaking world" and establish linguistic and cultural bridges between United States and Spanish speaking countries.
