I specialize in teaching Spanish to non-native speakers seeking to begin or perfect the language. My methodology includes ample vocabulary acquisition, and a clear approach to grammar learning. I teach in the target language for full-immersion, and focus on expanding conversation and practical usage.
I am a native of Spain and teach high-school Spanish. I have been teaching for 7 years in both a classroom and private setting. I am a published writer and literary translator, and offer academic, business, and conversation Spanish tutoring.
