In my experience, the Spanish language is a beautiful language. The Spanish student is most often afraid of sounding ridiculous or saying something wrong without meaning it when speaking Spanish. All the fears involving speaking a foreign language can be overcome with the proper coaching.

I have had the opportunity of tutoring high school students ranging from 9th to 12th grade who for the most part are more interested in the phonetic side of the language rather than the grammar side; also, I completed two years of International Affairs in one of the most demanding universities in Latin America (Universidad Nacional de Costa Rica), an institution that honors the integrity of the Spanish language in all its forms, written and spoken.

I am extremely patient and enjoy tutoring very much. Spanish It's actually not so bad... Let me show you.

General Music

Music is my life. I started when I was 6 years old studying organ for 4 years, followed by 2 years of classical piano. Very early I fell in love with the music of the old Disney animated movies as well as films such as Star Wars, Jurassic Park, Harry Potter, etc. (John Williams). I have played in many different bands with such influences as Rock, Progressive rock, Metal, Jazz, Latin jazz, alternative, pop, etc. I have composed and arranged music for many performers of all levels of competency.

I like tutoring very much, I have had the opportunity of tutoring high school students ranging from 9th to 12th grade who for the most part are more interested in the phonetics than grammar.
