I have been teaching Spanish lessons to all kind of students since I came to the United States seven years ago. I was born in Estella (Spain), an hour away from San Millán de la Cogolla, where the first written words in Spanish have been found, so my Spanish is as authentic as it gets. I can teach emphasizing grammar, pronunciation or conversation, and always adapting my teaching style to students' necessities as I was taught during my psycho-pedagogy classes at Universidad de Navarra.

My lessons are fun and straight to the point. You will never run out of materials to learn, which will always be tailored to your needs. Time is of the essence and I carefully select the topics based on your weaknesses so that your improvement is fast and steady. If you have specific requests, like preparing for a test, homework or learning a tune, I develop a plan with you so that you can achieve your goals. Learning is a process that many compare to a trip, so let's meet and embark in this travel ...
