Introduction: My name is Nancy, and I am a Mechanical Engineer with an MBA and a native Spanish speaker from South America with over 20 years of experience leading teams, motivating others, and assisting them in achieving success. I can help you achieve your Spanish goals and invite you to take two free trial classes until June 30th. I designed the classes to meet the needs of my students. My programs adhere to the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages), a global standard for describing linguistic ability. If you need to communicate in Spanish for business, tourism, academics, fun, or any other reason, I would be pleased to help you improve your Spanish communication skills. My students are my life's work. I enjoy teaching my native language and my culture.

Nancy has really helped us begin our journey into learning Spanish. Both my wife and I are beginners and Nancy has taken her time with us. We both work full time and have full schedules and we are progressing at what I believe is a reasonable pace. Thank you Nancy for helping us learn Spanish and to better communicate as well as understand the language when we travel or move about our local area.

My lessons with Nancy have been tremendous in growing my language abilities. Starting off with some basic Spanish knowledge, Nancy assessed and catered to where I was at. Our classes together flow organically and I always leave feeling more confident in my abilities.

She is great at teaching the basics of grammar and building a solid foundation. You don’t have to memorize everything either, you practice as you go and really start to pick things up just from speaking and practicing in the lessons. I have a feeling I will be very good at Spanish by the end of the year. Not fluent but I will know a lot!
