I am a professional Spanish teacher and tutor, certified by this great state of Illinois. I recently lived in Paraguay for two years where I taught elementary school in Spanish. I have lived abroad in places such as Argentina and Spain. My level of Spanish is near-native. I teach Spanish in the greater Chicago area.

What separates me from other tutors is my technique. It is researched based, highly intensive and very effective. You tell me what you want to learn, and we will develop overall objectives and a time table for each intensive session. I prepare the structure of the lesson beforehand, and then we go to work for at least an hour. After each lesson we will evaluate your progress and I will give you activities to work on during the week, free of charge.

My specialties are students who want to learn how to converse and understand basic Spanish, children looking for summer enrichment, young or old students or small groups who want to learn the basics in a fun setting, students who have been damaged by grammar-heavy curriculum in high school Spanish and want to regain a love of the language, and students who wish to pursue a more advanced academic course to refine their speech.

I can also show you or your sons and daughters how to hack high school grammar exams and memorize long vocabulary lists. I have taught Spanish I up through Spanish AP at the high school level.
