A teacher and an activist myself, I have been teaching Spanish for over 10 years and during this time, I have seen how emphasizing cross-cultural communication has greatly helped my students' confidence in acquiring the Spanish language.

My students not only go on to make new friends, but acquire new critical views that become very useful when searching for new professional or creative opportunities.

I use a communicative approach and I highly value students' personal experiences when creating a lesson. I love to teach all ages, from beginner to advance.

About Alex P.

I have a Master degree in Romance Languages (Spanish and Portuguese). 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 in 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 Alex a question."

My daughter is very happy to learn Spanish with Ms.Alex.
The classes are very interactive and Ms. Alex engages her with activities and conversations to learn the language better. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who wants to learn Spanish!!

I thoroughly enjoyed our first lesson with Alex!!! She was very kind and came prepared but also open to go wherever the lesson lead us. She was also very patient and understanding with my young son. I highly recommend her!

Alex is great! She's organized and well-prepared for every lesson. I'm always impressed at how many interactive activities she has prepared for me, how seamlessly she can switch back and forth between different websites and screens, and that she always has "homework" I can practice with before our next lesson.

I'm very much a beginner when it comes to Spanish but Alex is very patient and explains everything thoroughly and slowly enough that I can understand. I'm looking forward to becoming conversational and someday fluent in Spanish!

I had the pleasure of being Professor Alex Parada's student last spring. Not only was she incredibly kind, but she also taught with an energy that made it more comfortable for me to speak Spanish without losing confidence. She was a very encouraging professor who valued student input and made learning Spanish more interesting by covering real-world topics. Estoy muy agradecida por mi tiempo como su estudiante.
