As a native Spanish Speaker from South America bilingual English/Spanish with an MA Degree I have been successfully tutoring and teaching Spanish in Seattle to beginners and advanced students for the past twelve years.

I believe that Spanish Language is best learned in an environment that is creative and relaxed and most successful when students are actively participating and encouraged to develop their conversational skills so they grow a sense of confidence and accomplishment. My experience working with young children in Seattle private and public Schools shows me that using rich visual images helps students connect sound with meaning and colors with creative activity

I have tutored business people with International language Schools in Seattle who are looking to expand their business world and take advantage of the international opportunities available and also with professionals looking to have better communication with their clients, patients and employees.

I would look forward very much to meeting with any prospective Spanish student at any level to discuss or design a personalized program suited to their specific needs and requirements and can confidently look forward to an enjoyable and positive result.

Very Prepared — I was self studying Spanish 2 over the summer and I needed a tutor to help me with that. Lucia was very organized.
