Who better to teach the language that a local?
I am a native Spanish speaker from Spain with a degree in Bilingual Secretary (Spanish, French and English). While working for Financial Departments in different companies abroad and in Seattle, I have been tutoring both languages combined for more than 9 years. I love traveling around the world and I have learned basic language structures myself to start a conversation with locals (Italian, Portuguese, French and Tagalog).
I know how hard can be to learn a new language, not only because of the difference in words or pronunciation but also in different thinking at formulating ideas. That is why I have came up with alternative ways of learning Spanish.

This is what I want to learn when I have a new student. What is it that you enjoy the most while learning? What could take you to the next level? How would you like to learn Spanish from games or sport activities?
I adjust the class to the student's pace and try to create fun and practical ways to learn every time. At the end of the class I do a brief summary, so you see whether you reached the goals you set at the beginning of it.
I require a 24h cancellation policy although makeup classes could be provided.
