I am a native Spanish speaker from Madrid, Spain. I worked as an executive secretary until I moved to the United States seven years ago. I have a passion for teaching my native tongue in all its intricacies and cultural varieties. My experience includes tutoring classes and individuals in corporate, school, community, and group settings.

I have taught classes of middle school and high school students, and younger children. Therefore, I am ready to discuss teaching larger groups of students if desired.

I teach students of all fluency levels. Many of my students prefer learning through conversational Spanish, but I also teach by using a more structured format depending on the needs and preferences of my students. In all cases, I strive to make my classes interactive and fun. Please contact me if you have an interest in learning Spanish or in improving on your current Spanish knowledge.
