Overview

Hi, there! My name is Ana and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching Spanish since 2007 and have loved helping my students to reach their goals whether that was getting ready for a test, learning their ancestors language or getting fluent for their next job destination. I went to San Diego State University and earned a Master's program in Spanish linguistics. I also pursued a second Masters in Spain (my home country) in Teaching Spanish as a Second Language. I'm a motivated and dynamic teacher who has learnt that all students can learn a second language if they are challenged and encouraged. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

Experience

Spanish instructor

Feb 2013 - Jan 2015
Fuentes (Spanish school in Holland)

I was teaching courses in all levels and also conversation and culture courses.

Spanish Lecturer

Aug 2009 - May 2012
Georgetown University

As a lecturer I had different tasks. Of course, I was in charge of different Spanish courses (I covered all levels and also some Spanish culture sections), but I was also in charge of arranging the Spanish coffee hour every week and I was part of the instructors team responsible for evaluating the proficiency tests.

Spanish Teaching Associate

Aug 2007 - May 2009
San Diego State University

During my two years as a Master's student I had the opportunity to teach two Spanish courses every semester. I taught courses in different levels. In the lower levels I worked with colleagues to prepare everything included in the syllabus and in higher levels I had certain freedom to create material and I really enjoyed the challenge.

I am an adult student looking to build on the few basics of Spanish learned via RosettaStone and become language proficient. Ana did a great job in assessing my level of knowledge and developing a program that best met my needs. She is very personable, with a great sense of humor and a pleasure to work with. She is very patient and provides the help needed when I run into difficulties, but also provides the encouragement and discipline needed to keep me on track. I highly recommend Ana for anyone looking to develop their Spanish language skills.

Ana recommended some excellent Spanish books which I'm working through. She's excellent at answering my questions and clarifying concepts presented in the texts such as those concerning the usage of certain Spanish words. Ana has also provided excellent supplementary material to that presented in the Spanish text books. I enjoy working with Ana and I'm making great progress toward becoming bilingual.

Ana is an exceptional teacher. I began studying Spanish with Ana 11 months ago, and the experience has been beneficial and wonderful. As a business development executive handling Latin America, her lessons have enabled me to more effectively communicate with my clients in their native language. Ana is organized, structured and prepared for each and every class; while being flexible enough to work with me on a rather crazy schedule. Ana tailors her lessons based upon my progress. I was initially skeptical of classes conducted on Skype, but her effectiveness and the convenience of having class at home or the office has made the experience quite agreeable. I highly recommend Ana to anyone who has a desire to learn Spanish.

Ana is superb teacher. I have taken classes with her for a few months by now and she is always very well prepared, on time, and flexible to address any questions. She also tailors the lessons based on my needs and she is a motivating and patient teacher. She uses a great variety of learning materials for her lessons and exercises, which makes it fun to learn Spanish! I would highly recommend her to anyone who would like to learn Spanish!

I've been taking online classes with Ana for several months. Ana is my 4th Spanish instructor and by far the best. Ana tailors her lessons to her students' needs and mixes her lessons with fun exercises and Spanish popular culture such as movies, videos, and online articles. Ana is very patient but also holds her students accountable -- to me a great combination when learning a language. I would highly recommend Spanish lessons with Ana.
