Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: I was born and raised in Montréal, QC, Canada, where I grew up in a multilingual environment, speaking Spanish, French & English. I am fluent in Spanish, and growing up with close friends from different Latin American countries, I developed an understanding and love for several cultures including the Peruvian, Dominican, Cuban, and many more. I have also spent time in Spain, as well as several Latin American countries (Dominican Republic, Cuba, Brazil, Mexico, Colombia), where I developed an even greater love for not just Spanish, but also the differences in cultures to prepare me to be an ideal tutor for students interested in different types of dialects, speaking patterns, and more. I have a bachelor's degree in Linguistics & Translation. The study of Linguistics has helped deepen my understanding of phonetics, phonology, semantics, syntax and more --all important components to properly teach Spanish. I am passionate about the Spanish language and the cultures that surround it. Nothing makes me happier than passing along this same passion to my students, and watching them fall in love with the language I love.

Sara is so personable and amazing at her job. She structures each lesson in a way that makes it feel conversational and less like learning it in school. I enjoy our weekly lessons

Sara is truly an amazing teacher. I have been really impressed from the get go. Very nice, understanding, and willing to help. She leads you through a highly effective curriculum and very quickly you will be learning a lot. I have never had success with Rosetta Stone or classroom language courses in school. Sara is the real deal.

I have worked with Sara for over 2 years. I started out only knowing how to count to ten! I can now carry on full conversations and read in Spanish. She has exceeded all of my expectations in learning a new language. Sara understands this is an individual process and has always helped me to stay encouraged through the learning curve. I am a very busy, full time working mom, with the dream of Spanish fluency. While I know many of her students are fluent in a very short amount of time, I have always appreciated Sara's patience with my learning pace. She continues to cater lessons to meet my personal needs and keep this goal achievable with the time I have available to dedicate to the process. She gives the balance of letting this fit into my life, while also providing accountability so that I continue moving forward. She is incredibly professional and shows up prepared, organized, on time, and with enthusiasm to teach the language. She is resourceful; always providing learning tips, books, quality printable material, links to shows and videos and extra activities I can do on my own. I love how her teaching layers and builds upon the previous lesson. Anyone, at any age, or place in life can learn from Sara's teaching style. 5 stars for the value received!! I will continue learning and practicing conversations alongside her for years to come.

I’ve been working with Sara for 4 years now and she is great! I went from zero Spanish to comfortably speaking with others and have had a great time doing it. Sara is kind, funny, punctual, and creative. After all of this time, I consider her a good friend also! If you are looking to learn Spanish, don’t hesitate.
