Have fun learning languages!
My interest in languages started when I was young. My mother is from Mexico and I grew up speaking Spanish and English in San Francisco. While staying with relatives in Mexico, I learned all about Mexican culture. I have both a Master of Public Administration degree and a B.A. Degree in Spanish, Cum Laude Honors. As an undergraduate student, I spent a year studying Spanish at the Universidad Complutense in Madrid, Spain. In addition, I studied Spanish, art and dance for three months in...
My interest in languages started when I was young. My mother is from Mexico and I grew up speaking Spanish and English in San Francisco. While staying with relatives in Mexico, I learned all about Mexican culture. I have both a Master of Public Administration degree and a B.A. Degree in Spanish, Cum Laude Honors. As an undergraduate student, I spent a year studying Spanish at the Universidad Complutense in Madrid, Spain. In addition, I studied Spanish, art and dance for three months in Guadalajara, Mexico.
I have experience in tutoring high school students and adults. I have worked at the Council of Europe (a human rights organization) in Strasbourg, France, where I used French and translated Spanish. I also studied French for a year at the University of Strasbourg, including performing plays in French. Before that I worked for two years at a United Nations agency in Rome, Italy where I used Italian and Spanish.
Now I enjoy returning often to visit Mexico and Europe. I have always had a passion for languages and for teaching languages through conversation, comprehension, reading, listening and speaking. I can help you develop and improve your language skills for vacation trips, business travel or school. You will learn how to expertly communicate in another language – whether in Spanish, French, Italian or English.

Great tutor for a beginner like me
Isabel was my Spanish tutor for about an year. At that point of time I didn't have any experience with Spanish and now I can tell that after an year I made an amazing progress - thanks to Isabel. She is very flexible and was able to arrange classes for me at the time that was convenient for me. She not only taught me Spanish but help me to understand Spanish culture better. It helped me a lot during my trips to Central America and Spain. I would recommend Isabel to everyone who is looking for an excellent tutor!Vladimir, 59 lessons with Isabel
Interesting and knowledgeable tutor.

Knowledgeable and experienced but didn't work out.
Isabel is very knowledgeable yet her schedule was not really conducive for teaching small children. She started some classes of her own right in the middle of our agreed meeting time on Saturdays and kept wanting to rescedule for a later time in the day (5:00 pm) when kids are not necessarily at their learning peak.Jay, 7 lessons with Isabel
The first lesson with Isabel was very smooth. She was quickly able to adjust to my level of Spanish and structure a plan for future lessons to meet my goals.Roman, 11 lessons with Isabel
Knowledgeable, patient, and supportive
She thoughtfully corrected my written work, and then we conversed, and checked my exercises. She told me about the herbal cures of her grandmother, which were very interesting.Cynthia, 5 lessons with Isabel
Se habla Espanol?
Speaking the language. Daughter is already bi-lingual and Isabel is helping her master a 3rd language. She wanted to get more comfortable with conversational Spanish versus conjugation etc.Jim, 19 lessons with Isabel
First Spanish Tutor to contact is Isabel S.
Isabel is a wonderful Spanish tutor that you would expect in a tutor that comes to your home on a weekly basis. Always confirms sessions and always prompt. Her knowledge of Spanish and the way she teaches is personable and thoughtful. You can tell she's had many years of solid teaching experience and makes Spanish explainable and enjoyable. I highly recommend Isabel S.Melanie, 4 lessons with Isabel
