I am a native Spanish speaker, born and raised in Mexico. All levels and ages are welcome!
Learning a new language and culture could be intimidating, that's why I work and adapt to your pace! You can choose if you want to take it slow and start from the basics or if you want to get going and start practicing your conversation skills right away!
Everyone has a different learning style, different background, goals or situations; I like to customize my lessons depending on my students' needs, this way I can make sure the class will be interesting, engaging, and fun for everyone despite their age. Ready to start speaking Spanish? Contact me today!

Best instructor ever. Everything is in Spanish, which forces me to learn more words and express everything in Spanish. Lorena always writes down new words and phrases for me and helps me understand difficult grammatical concepts while keeping the lessons fun!

I have lived in Spain more than 20 years, I am a native Spanish speaker. I studied all my youth and finished High School there in Spain. Later on I graduated from the University of North Texas obtaining my Bachelor of Arts in Music and a Minor in Spanish. I taught Spanish at IALE International School of Valencia for a year and then obtained my Teaching Certification in Spanish in Texas this year. I can teach grammar, how to write the language correctly, correct pronunciation, conversation and all related to this beautiful language. I like teaching all ranges of age. I have experience teaching very beginners up to adults.

If you have a lot of knowledge about the language but you want to improve your speaking in a higher level, or you need to learn it for your job or business I am the one to speak with! I will take your Spanish to a HIGHER LEVEL!

If you are asking yourself if it is the same language than the Latin American Spanish, yes, it is the same. The only differences are based ...

My lessons build beginners from a point of zero or basic knowledge of Spanish to the point at which they will feel comfortable reading intermediate texts, chatting with native speakers, and understanding the majority of content they find online such as YouTube videos or podcasts. We will use a communicative approach founded upon comprehensible input, which research has shown is the most effective method for true acquisition of a language, as opposed to simply learning about the language. We will mostly be working through Language Transfer materials, along with various curated sources of comprehensible input, which is perfect both for people with no prior Spanish experience or for people who have studied Spanish previously through more traditional methods and wish to fill the gaps in their knowledge. Upon completion of this text and other supplementary materials, you will be at a solid intermediate level.

In addition, for students who are interested, using my linguistics background, ...

Raphael is a fantastic instructor who provides informative, effective, and highly enjoyable lessons.

He's a master of languages, which means that he is able to easily and comprehensibly explain even complex language functions, and provide interesting facts and explanations about the origins of words and grammatical features, and the links between different languages, drawing on his wealth of knowledge.

Most importantly, the lessons are incredibly engaging, and Raphael ensures that the way in which you go through the material and learn is matched to your ability, whilst teaching you practical use of the language.

I was initially somewhat apprehensive about learning languages online, and about the somewhat different "immersion" approach suggested by Raphael, but after a little while now I can say that with Raphael as my teacher, it has been far more effective in a shorter period than any extended period of university study or self-directed study has been for me before!
Luke
One of the best teachers I’ve ever met! Incredibly knowledgeable in phonetics, and a natural master of the language. I’ve learned more from Raphael than any teacher in my life.
Araceli
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 STARS!
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Yes! I finally get it, all thanks to Raphael Turrigiano. I’ve learned more from Raphael in only a few weeks than I’ve ever had in years of trying to self-teach and even taking college courses.

Trust in his process. With Raphael’s lesson plans, guidance, and support, he will help you build a strong foundation in your Italian language learning skills.

My first day meeting with Raphael, I was nervous and not sure if I was going to be able to learn much since I have failed many times before, but he was so kind, friendly, professional, informative, and fun. I instantly felt comfortable with him. He assured me that I was going to learn the Italian language and all was going to be okay. It’s been a pleasure working with him since.

My lessons with Raphael are very informative. He is extremely knowledgeable, observant, has quickly mastered how I learn and explains the language to me to where I understand it. In addition, he shares fun facts, culture, and history about the language along the way. Plus, he is teaching me how to speak like a native. Raphael an amazing teacher and will help you.

I have a Master in Fine Arts and, I encourage students to learn the Spanish Language through art culture traditions. In addition, to being a Spanish instructor, I work as an art curator, gallerist, and art educator. I incorporate art and music into my classes as a way to give a well-rounded introduction into Spanish, not only in a linguistic but also in a cultural sense. I use a communicative methodology, which emphasizes interaction, so you will learn in context (asking for coffee, or talking about your family), and a student-centered approach, which is based on your personal goals.

My class includes an e-textbook (open source) and all practice material. Most of all, I hope to get to know my students and have fun in the process of teaching and learning. And yes! any question is a good question, feel free to contact me. Click the icon above under " Ask Liliana a question."

"My daughter HATED Spanish due to her teacher at school and was failing. I was looking for a Spanish Tutor and one of my friends recommended Rosita. In 3 classes she taught my daughter what her teacher took months to teach. Kelly has been taking lessons twice a week with her to help her with her homework and really break down the Spanish Rules and now she loves learning the language. Her grade approved drastically. What surprised me the most is that she is excited to go to her lessons with Rosita. I noticed when I come in the class she listens, has patience and she constantly encourages my daughter. She is a one of a kind teacher. I can't recommend her enough. She has been a blessing! Even I'm learning Spanish without even knowing! I'm going to continue classes with her through the summer so she doesn't forget everything she learned."
