Spanish Tutor (Native Colombian) with B. of Arts offers lessons in person or online.

Methodology

I focus on one ability per lesson (reading, writing, speaking, listening). I usually start my lessons with small talk in Spanish, then review homework or answer any questions they may have. We proceed to the main lesson depending on their level of Spanish and finalize with one cultural or historical topic of Latin America/ Spain if desired.

Background

Recent graduate working in banking. I've traveled to 6 countries in Latin America and know different dialects and accents. I finished High School in Latin America. I've taught children in Latin America English and American kids Spanish for more than 3 years.
