I am a native French speaker and spent 21 years living just outside of Paris!

I've also worked as a French tutor at Berklee College of Music, and I am familiar with different French textbooks we could use. If you prefer the lesson to be conversation driven, that works for me too!

Hi there! Learning a language doesn't have to be hard and frustrating, I promise it can be easy, fun, and extremely rewarding. I've been a Spanish tutor for about 5 years, I'm Mexican-American, I grew up with the Spanish language at home, and I took a Spanish minor in college. My lessons aren't focused on grammar rules and lists of vocabulary -- I have a more unconventional approach, and I promise that I'll help the language make sense for you! My lessons are very comfortable and laid-back, based mainly around conversation, and I'm happy to tailor them to any specific areas that you want to work on. I've worked with straight-up beginners, intermediate, and even very advanced students. All ages/levels are welcome, I'd love to help you improve your Spanish!

Hola a todos!

I am originally from Spain, and I have lived there for over 20 years. Since I also teach music, this has offered me the opportunity to adapt to the individual needs of each student very quickly. If this will be your first interaction with Spanish, I will help you getting started with basic speaking skills, and we will slowly move into writing skills. If you are already able to speak in Spanish, we could strengthen your knowledge through conversation development or writing checkups. Mucha suerte y adelante!!!

About Ignacio

The Spanish violist, Ignacio, has developed an international career as a viola performer and teacher, in Europe, United States, China, and Russia. His collaborations include faculty chamber music recitals with members of the Music Academy of the West, the Cleveland Orchestra, the Cleveland Strin
