I have a Bachelor's Degree in Spanish as a foreign language, Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction and I am a native speaker. I have more than 3 years of experience teaching students language both as a tutor and a classroom teacher. I want to provide you with a supportive environment where you can learn and reach your potential just like I have done in the past with former students. I believe this is crucial in order for learning to happen.

I use techniques that are researched based as well as techniques I used to learn my languages. As a language learner myself, I understand how challenging it can be to learn a new language! Let's work hard together to improve!

The Complete List of English Idioms, Proverbs, & Expressions

Although English idioms don't make sense at first, these unique expressions (together with proverbs) add substance and humor to our conversations. The Oxford Dictionary defines the word "idiom" as a: "group of words established by usage as having a meaning not deducible from those of the individual words (e.g. over the moon, see the light)."
