Hello! I am originally from Guatemala but have been living in the U.S. for half my life, I recently moved to Washington, D.C., and I am eager to learn more about this city.
Want to learn Spanish? I am fluent in Spanish since it is my native tongue. I can help you with conversational Spanish. Improve your conversational skills and learn more about the culture! I can help improve your oral, reading, and writing skills! With me as a tutor, you won't have any problems on your next trip to Argentina!
If your business requires you to have client relations with the Spanish speaking world, I can help you with that too! I will help you with business-related Spanish, and your business will boom!

Just a little background information on me...
I was born in Guatemala from a Spanish father and Guatemalan mother. As a child, I lived most of my life in Guatemala, although I lived a few years in the U.S. I went to college at the University of Miami and majored in Marketing. I loved Miami! I got to meet people from all over the world; it was a great experience!
I then moved to Dallas where I left marketing and worked eight years as an elementary math teacher. My goal was to inspire my students' love for learning! During these 8 years, my students' TAKS/STAAR scores ranked among the highest in the school where I taught and also through the Dallas district. Thanks to that, after my third year of teaching I became a Master Teacher. I believe there isn't an excuse for students not to feel successful in what they are learning!

I strive for client satisfaction, so I never charge for a lesson in which the student is not fully satisfied. Since I hold myself accountable for the quality of my lessons, your feedback is appreciated.

Although I have a cancellation policy of 12 hours prior to the tutoring session, I also gladly offer makeup sessions.

I look forward to hearing from you and to be part of the journey of your learning!

Elementary Math

Elementary Math

My experience in teaching Math comes from teaching this subject to students in Kindergarten all the way to 5th grade. Throughout these years my students have achieved stellar results in state tests and have made tremendous academic gains from their previous school years. I believe in inspiring students to have a love for math. Sometimes Math becomes difficult because it is feared, but once it is presented in a way that is not intimidating the student not only learns but starts to love Math.

My experience in autism comes from working 8 years with autistic students as a Math teacher. Although my experience is mainly in Math, I am certified in General Education K-4th grade, so I can teach all subjects.

Yoga

Yoga

I've been passionate about yoga for years. Practicing yoga has done wonders to my mind-body. That passion inspired me to pursue a Teacher Training Certification at Dallas Yoga Center. Now, I am ready to share yoga with the world. The Teacher Training I completed was the 200 Hour Teacher Training Certification through Dallas Yoga Center (Yoga Alliance Certified). It was a 6 month commitment involving weekend immersions, self study, teaching, class attendance, observation and deep self inquiry. I taught Community Classes for a few months at Dallas Yoga Center as part of my teacher training.

Such an amazing Spanish tutor! Highly recommend!!

I encourage you to reach out to Carmen if you are interested in a high quality spanish tutor, who is friendly, patient, and will get you results! I have been working with Carmen for about a year and I have gone from speaking "zero" spanish to being able to feel comfortable communicating with my in-laws in puerto rico, as well as necessary daily conversation with people while out and about in PR. My confidence has greatly improved and I am no longer self conscious about speaking in another language. Her lessons are very professional and she can customize her class based on your learning needs. Carmen is very flexible and can work around busy schedules. I highly encourage you to set up your first lesson with her! You will really love working with her.

Carmen D is an awesome teacher!!!

Carmen is an awesome teacher!!! She is extremely knowledgeable, well prepared, and is a genuine pleasure to work with. I had some previous experience with Spanish, having taken college Spanish courses to help me at work.When I looked for possible teachers with Wyzant, I decided to contact Carmen because she was a native Spanish speaker, she had taught elementary school students, and she had so many 5 star reviews.I definitely made a great choice. She teaches at just the right pace for me, mixing new material with review. Carmen has improved my everyday Spanish skills with each lesson.I find myself using something that I learned from Carmen at work every single day.

Great teacher!

She is structured, knowledgeable, fun and very motivating! I would definitely recommend Carmen if you want to learn Spanish in an efficient and encouraging way!

Sibila, 4 lessons with Carmen

The Best Spanish Instructor.

I'm learning so fast and love the interface of Wyzant to go along with her style of teaching. I don't have to leave my home and get a full hour of tutoring twice a week. Very productive.

Michael, 21 lessons with Carmen

Very Attentive to Where I Need to Improve

I have begun lessons with Carmen, and she is really helping me improve my grammar. She very kindly guides students to the right word choice and the right form of the word I want to say. I am really enjoying these classes, and I believe my Spanish is getting a lot better.

Wilson, 1 lesson with Carmen

Another awesome lesson

Carmen is the best! Breaks everything down clearly, has well thought out lesson plans, and tailors class to what I’m interested in learning most. I can’t believe how much I’ve learned in just a couple months!

Alyssa, 11 lessons with Carmen

Very knowledgeable and patient.

Carmen was great! she was able to recognize my level of knowledge and adjust to my learning needs. She also gave me homework, which I need to keep me accountable, and recommended some audible books and Netflix shows. I am very excited for more lessons, and to see my progress!

Jessica, 17 lessons with Carmen

Great teacher

Great teacher. Has a nice way of teaching Spanish and it is nice learning from a native. I have little knowledge of Spanish and she was able to start from the very basics and help me build my way up to have confidence.

Joe, 23 lessons with Carmen

Professional and patient tutor

After just two sessions, I am convinced I can actually learn to read and speak Spanish. Carmen uses the hour long session very effectively, and I leave it with a stronger commitment to accomplish my Spanish goal.

Greg , 83 lessons with Carmen
