I am a Spanish teacher with a Masters in Arts in Teaching Spanish. I've taught in a wide range of formats from regular classroom basic Spanish courses for Middle School students to one-on-one lessons with Professionals that want to increment their cultural knowledge and be up-to-date in current events in a specific Spanish-speaking country. Films, music, and food are recurrent topics in my lessons as well as anecdotes from my childhood in Mexico.
