Learn Spanish from a native speaker! I teach the "neutral" Latin American Spanish, no specific accent. It is the Spanish spoken across all Spanish-speaking countries in Latin America. Once we determine what your goals and needs are, we will work to create the perfect class for you.

I also give personalized feedback after each class to help you with your practice outside of our lessons together.

Let's get started!

Carlos is an amazing instructor! Every hour lesson is packed full of information, new and old. His style makes learning Spanish fun and exciting. Homework is given to help practice what we have learned within the lesson as well. A review at the end of each lesson allows the student to ask questions to help clarify any confusion. I look forward to every lesson with Carlos!

I have experience teaching and working with children as well as with adults. I feel comfortable teaching students in all different levels, from the beginner up to the advanced level. The typical approach that I use is a rather communicative one. I like to encourage students to speak and get engaged in real life situations.

I like to know my students, who you are and what your interests are so that I am not just your teacher, but also a friend. I like to think that I am a humorous person and it always makes me feel great when we can share a laugh or two in the class.

Come and join me!

Take lessons with a native Spanish speaker! I have experience working with children and adults from beginner up to advanced levels. I specialize in grammatical and technical classes as well as conversational ones. I tend to follow a rather communicative teaching approach, motivating students to interact in real situations.

There’s nothing like the feeling of a good class, a class that was enjoyed by the teacher and the students, so I always try to create a bond between students so that classes are more customized. It also helps to develop confidence and promotes the use of Spanish in the class. It doesn’t matter the topic and the focus of the lesson, humor, laughter and little jokes are a must in all classes to break the ice and to make the class more pleasant.

I can't wait to get started!

I'm totally new to Japanese and I was very nervous. I just completed my 4th lesson and I'm finding learning Japanese is fun! Toshi is very patient and he is helping me create a plan forward. I have been working hard and have kind of gotten Hiragana,Katakana, but I need a lot more practice. I am able to read and write some words and in our lesson today I spoke my first complete Japanese sentence. Thank you Toshi for your help and for making my Japanese journey fun!
