I'm a native of Medellin, Colombia and have lived in Seattle for over five years. I originally came as an exchange teacher for a local Catholic school. I enjoy teaching, helping and working with people of all ages and experience levels.

I have nearly ten years of teaching and tutoring experience. I earned my bachelor's degree in education at the University at Pontificia Bolivariana in Medellin and then taught and tutored at Universidad Catolica de Oriente. In addition to my experience teaching at the Seattle K-8 Catholic school, I have also worked with a number of other schools in the area, including one-on-one tutoring for kids, teenagers and adults alike. I have also been tutoring for several years at Seattle Central College, in the transitional education ESL program, helping adult ESL students transition to life in Seattle.

For Spanish students, I love helping you to learn a beautiful and important world language and hope that you will be able to travel and use your hard earned skills. For ESL students, I too was once an ESL student in high school and university and know both the challenges and sense of accomplishment that comes from improving your skills.

Teaching and helping others is my passion; I love doing it. One of my biggest pleasures is that when I run into former students a year or more after I taught them, that they smile and yell "Hola!" to me. I hope that you will also be one of those students some day!

Spanish lesson

Thank you so much Ximena for helping our high school sophomore really understand Spanish. He's been behind because of a concussion and she's keeping him on track

Leo, 4 lessons with Ximena

Very happy

My daughter has had two sessions with Ximena so far and we're looking forward to many more. She has been taking Spanish for a while but has missed some really critical parts of how the language is structured. Ximena is reviewing what she needs to know and my daughter is ecstatic that she's receiving the very specific help she needs. We're looking forward to more tutoring and are excited that she can finally make progress in filling in the holes.

Peggy, 5 lessons with Ximena

ximena blends the power of empathy and that helps her relate the important work of teaching.

We are starting with phrases that will be pertinent to my next trip to mexico. Ximena is using structure of the basics to get me started with a foundation to build on.

Deb, 1 lesson with Ximena

Very knowledgeable and helpful!

I can't recommend her highly enough. She is a great tutor! She is very patient and knows her subject well. I would recommend her to anyone who needs help with Spanish.

Chris, 2 lessons with Ximena

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Ximena does a wonderful job with our 7 year old twice a week. Our daughter has come so far in such a short time. We meet twice a week at a local library and our daughter looks forward to each class.

Tamar, 27 lessons with Ximena

Great session!

Ximena was very patient as we reviewed information to see where we should go after our first session. She is very organized and the her examples were easy to remember.

Alicia, 34 lessons with Ximena

Excellent tutor

Ximena is an excellent tutor. Today, my second lesson, she helped me increase my vocabulary and my confidence in speaking Spanish!

Harriet, 7 lessons with Ximena

Very smart and perceptive tutor

Ximena is extraordinarily friendly and works with you to figure out what your goals are. She also is quite perceptive and able to determine ways in which to better improve your Spanish. I hope to update this review as I progress with my learning!

Monica, 1 lesson with Ximena

Great Tutor

Ximena is an outstanding tutor. She listens to the client and is able to design lessons at a challenging level that meet my needs. Xamina does a great job of holding me accountable for the tutoring session as well as providing additional resources to work on throughout the week. It's an excellent use of my time:
