Bio

I am an Ivy League-educated PhD holder with years of experience teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language at a university level who can offer high quality one-on-one tutorials for primary- and secondary school students and professionals, as well as company-based group lessons. Besides having Spanish and Portuguese as my mother tongues, I speak German, English, Galician, and French and, therefore, I am fully aware of the joys and pitfalls of language learning, not just as a teacher but also as a...

I am an Ivy League-educated PhD holder with years of experience teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language at a university level who can offer high quality one-on-one tutorials for primary- and secondary school students and professionals, as well as company-based group lessons. Besides having Spanish and Portuguese as my mother tongues, I speak German, English, Galician, and French and, therefore, I am fully aware of the joys and pitfalls of language learning, not just as a teacher but also as a professor. My tutorials and classes are dynamic and focused on the active use of Spanish and Portuguese and the integration of cultural materials with grammar and syntax.

Through personalized teaching system and advanced methodologies, I make sure that my clients’ objectives and needs are met and their time and effort maximized. In a global context in which internationalization and multiculturalism are no longer empty words but an everyday reality, commanding a global language like Spanish can be the difference between having a job and having a career. I offer exclusive tutorial services tailored to the needs of a wide variety of students-- from professionals with a busy calendar to primary and secondary school students. I will go meet you at the place of your choice --at your home, office, or favorite cafe. Regardless of your language level, I will work with you to ensure that you reach your learning objectives in the most effective way. Each of my clients is unique and so are my tutorials. Unlike regular learning environments, my tutorials are especially designed to address your professional needs and personal interests --whether you work in business, law, the medical industry, or education, or your cultural interests are Latin American music or Spanish architecture.

With years of experience at language teaching in at Ivy League institutions, I incorporate into the teaching the latest and most advanced methodologies in language acquisition. To ensure the quality and adequacy of my tutorials, I design my own exercises

My level of Portuguese is near native. I lived in Lisbon for a number of years and for many years Portuguese was my primary language of communication. I passed the Diploma Universitario de Portugues como Lingua Estrangeira (DUPLE from Lisbon University) in 2007. For the past 3 years I have been consistently teaching the language in private lessons. In addition, I have a very strong background in Spanish as a foreign language. I am a native speaker of Galician and Spanish and have been trained as a language instructor in Spanish. Due to this strong background in Spanish, I am able to help out very effectively those Portuguese students with a background in Spanish.
