About LAURA

I am a Spanish native speaker and a former Spanish college professor with over 16 years of experience teaching the language to children and adults. I taught different classes of Spanish language and culture at Governors State University for 12 years.

I am a highly qualified and effective instructor. I teach all levels of Spanish as a foreign language as well as Spanish for native speakers, that is for students that speak Spanish already but want to become fully proficient in all aspects of the language.

I am very passionate for Spanish and give 100 percent in my classes. I am also demanding and truthful with my students as they learn the language and I help them overcome any obstacles they may encounter in their learning process.

My classes cover the study and practice of the four skills in a language: students will develop their listening, writing, reading and speaking skills. I also provide any learning material and resources needed for your lessons with me.

I look forward to meeting and helping you achieve your academic goals.

Best,
Laura
