We've only had one lesson so far, but Lisa recommended some great books and shows that will improve my Portuguese. She also gauged my level of knowledge and my preferred method of learning.
I'm looking forward to our future lessons.

OMG my excitement is through the roof after my first lesson with Humberto! I can't even get my feet to touch the ground. I am an adult, basically starting from scratch picking up my violin for the first time in 20+ years having played for a year as a kid. I was so nervous, and feel silly starting at such an elementary level, and Humberto's instruction was not only expert, but his enthusiasm was completely genuine. He was authentically supportive every step of the way and thrilled at every moment of progress. His infectious smile made me feel so safe being a novice starting over and so excited for my next lesson...which he's not teaching me in Spanish since he learned I need to practice my dusty Spanish skills as well! Couldn't recommend him highly enough, love love love Humberto and can't wait til next week's lesson!

Julia is amazing. I have been tutored before but it always ended with frustration and lose of interest. Julia is the opposite of that. She is always prepared with very personalized lessons specific to what you wanna learn. At no point did I feel like she was trying to fit me into her mold. She tailors her teaching to me and what I am interested in, and adapts well when I am struggling. She clearly demonstrates her dedication to her students through the amount of preparation she puts in and has the teaching background to overcome learner difficulties. I very much suggest Julia for other Spanish learners at all levels.

More than a Spanish teacher I’m in love of this language and Spanish culture. I’m from Spain and more than a skill I’m interested in making my students getting involved with the language. I’m a psychologist who have been working with learning as language process so I know exactly what to do to make you speak , write and understand Spanish!

About Leticia
Hey! I’m Leticia, from Spain. I’m a Spanish teacher and a psychologist who have been working on language process for more than 8 years! Learning a language is much more than obtain a skill, it’s a totally new world that opens for you!
I have experience teaching all ages for native English speakers and for Portuguese native speakers as well.
I’ve been teaching kids and adolescents for more than three years and it was an incredible experience.
I’m based in DC NW and class could be in meeting rooms in DC public libraries or online.
All courses are indivualy designe, that means that every single students will have a first interview with me to tell me what goals do they have and why Spanish is important for them. After this, the method will be created for helping us to achieve the target.
Spanish is an amazing language that will surprise yo
u for sure.

Letícia is the best teacher I found in the area by far.
I improved my Spanish skills a lot in a short period of time.

During my last business travel to Spain, I was able to negotiate and have conversations with locals, they understood everything that I was saying. That's something I couldn't do last year.

Totally recommended!

I lived in Spain for 7 years and did my undergraduate program in Social Work over there. I have had the opportunity to be a student and later on become a teacher to a variety of children of all ages and impart the knowledge I had acquire from the people and society itself.

It has been an absolute pleasure and I cannot wait to teach you what I have learned.

Brooklyn, MD

View Full Profile

I'm a Certified Interpreter in Spanish (along with Romanian, French, Italian, and Portuguese) by the Defense Language Institute Monterrey, California.
Since middle school I loved foreign languages which proved to be very rewarding starting with high school when traveling around the world with shooting competitions.
Visiting Spain and Andorra, and traveling countries on five continents allowed me the affinity of learning more about the culture but also develop preferences for myself. I also learned various accents available in other parts of the world where Spanish is spoken.

Learning any foreign language opens doors in life whether on personal or professional level, and I sincerely believe that anybody can learn anything disregarding their age; in fact, I have friends who late in life decided to learn foreign languages or various skills that they always wanted to learn, so, I encourage you to do the same.

About Isabela
I'm an enthusiastic learner even after 19 years of formal education (two Masters, one Bachelor) earned on two continents continued by US military education in various forms, and formally tested student who needed to document skills that were not formally captured on paper (like the foreign languages I know).

I love interacting with people and pass on my knowledge from five visited continents, instill love for learning and continuous curiosity for any subject out there. Nothing is impossible when you set your mind to it. Failing once doesn't mean that you'll never win (proof in my athletic years and life ever since); determination, hard work, self-motivation and a good supporting system can bring to reality even the most insignificant dreams that we believe may not come true, and especially those in which we passionately trust.

I be
lieve in breaking down a goal into objectives, assigning tasks to each one of them, and then sticking to achieve them.

I'm a Certified Instructor with the Department of Homeland Security. My hobbies include practicing foreign languages by speaking them, learning about cultures and slangs, etymology, watching foreign movies, traveling internationally, taking photos, reading (a lot), carefully planning with room for error and impulsive decisions (to take the boredom out of things), meeting with life long friends, drawing, painting, and spending time outdoors for inspiration.

I'm elated at the opportunity of brainstorming with you and giving you tools to be an independent learner.
