About Lorna

I am a native Spanish speaker, and a professional with a degree in Business Management. I have more than 10 years of experience providing private Spanish tutoring in Virginia, working with students at all levels - adults, teenagers and young students. I have worked with students from Thomas Jefferson High, McLean High, Langley High, the Nysmith School, South Lakes High, Forestville Elementary, Buzz Aldrin Elementary, Oakton High, St. John's High, Great Falls High - among many others. I have also had great success working with couples who wish to experience the thrill of learning together.

I have a passion for teaching and helping others. I love to provide students with exceptional learning experiences. I love working with students and blending traditional teaching methods with technology to enhance the learning experience. It is such a joy to watch the excitement blossom within a student as the learning starts to take hold.

The gift of language is an investment that lasts a lifetime, and it should be fun, exciting and meaningful. Learning to communicate in a foreign language - thus opening the door to another world - is one of the most important achievements in life. I am passionate about Spanish because Spanish is spoken by over 400 Million people in more than 20 countries, and it is the most popular foreign language in American Schools.

I have lived and worked in South and Central America and have traveled to more than 10 Spanish speaking countries. I have also traveled to many other countries around the world to learn about other cultures.

I would love to help guide you in your language journey. Learning how to read and have wonderful conversations in another language is a lot of fun and a very rewarding experience.

I try to make learning Spanish both interesting and enjoyable for my students, using software, books, flash cards and games. I am passionate about teaching Spanish and I look forward to working with you!

Thank you,

Lorna
