About Daphne

I have been speaking Spanish at a near native level since 1999. I learned in High School so I have lots of tips and tricks to help with memorization! I love seeing the progress that my students make - nothing is more motivating!

I have been teaching the language for 11 years and I really LOVE it. I find that people can tell the difference and learn better from someone who truly loves what they teach.

As a teacher and a tutor I tailor my teaching style to best suit the needs of my students. Some students require a more detailed grammar explanation before feeling confident enough to have a conversation. Others learn best by having a conversation and having their grammar 'fixed' along the way. I'm very flexible and I am sure that we can figure out a system that works best for you!

I learned the language - so I have many tips and tricks for the irregular verbs and memorization.
I have studied abroad and I am a professional interpreter - I use my Spanish daily :-D
Plus, I have a Masters in the language and teach it at a University.

I have a contagious personality and a huge love of the language and culture.
