About Azalea L.

Welcome! My name is Azalea, I grew up in Mexico and I am fluent in both English and Spanish. I hold a Master's degree and I have been teaching since 2012. Some of my classroom settings include private lessons, group lessons, summer camps, online lessons, among others. I have experience working with students of all ages and backgrounds such as children, adults, college students, working parents, etc.

I believe it is important for students to be emerged in the language they are learning. For this reason, I like to encourage my students to practice in and outside our lessons as much as possible by speaking, listening, and reading in Spanish. Every single student is different and they all have very different learning techniques; therefore, I customize my lesson plans to fit my students' needs, learning style, and interests. Plus, the most important part of the learning process is to have fun and to enjoy ourselves every lesson!

Our background or language should never be a reason to feel disconnected from others, like our own family, friends, or colleagues. So if you are looking to learn Spanish for work, school, or just for fun, you are in the right place! I would love to help you conquer your goals and guide you in your Spanish journey!

Thank you for stopping by and please let me know if you have any questions, I can't wait to meet you!

Azalea not only keeps conversation flowing, but recognizes where you can use more practice! In our lesson she helped me improve my listening skills and made it feel like we were working together. Practicing another language can be very intimidating but Azalea has a very comforting presence that makes it feel safe to make an error, and subsequently rewarding when a mistake is corrected. Not only did I gain a lot from my one hour session, but she provided me with extra skill-enhancing links that I can reference even after time is up!

Azalea is amazing! She kept our large group engaged during the whole lesson. She used polls, activities, and group participation to keep it fun and educational. She has great energy, and we can't wait for our next lesson!

Azalea is great because she tailors the lesson to my unique needs. I need to know more Spanish for my work. She also goes pretty fast, I think because I know some Spanish already, but will slow down and explain things when I ask questions. She also sends written document after the lesson laying out what we covered. Brava Azalea!

I look forward to my Spanish lessons with Azalea! She is very personable and makes me feel like a friend is helping me learn and practice instead of a feeling like a student. It’s easy to ask questions and I think she explains things in ways that are easy to understand.
So glad I found this site and Azalea! Gracias!

Azalea is upbeat and positive. She encourages every student in her group classes to participate. She helps the beginner to speak while removing the fear of speaking in a foreign language.
