Teaching since:
2014

I offer online Spanish classes with a strong conversational/speaking focus and are given 100% in Spanish for more language interaction. Your pronunciation and fluency will improve quicker with immersion style classes. In addition, I am a native Mexican Spanish speaker and can provide guidance on sounding more natural, using idioms and other common phrases.

I have been teaching for over 5 years in language centers and bilingual schools, as well as online with private students. I have a degree from the Universidad Veracruzana in Teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language (Enseñanza de español como lengua extranjera).

I begin with new student by identifying their priorities and then setting a SMART goal. Based on the timeline, I make an action plan that we follow so the student can see progress in each and every class. We reevaluate goals and materials as needed. I have materials for students in all levels and many professional industries.

To make the online classes more interesting and effective, we will use slides to collaborate on the materials together. This allows us to communicate in real time and the information is saved to the drive, so it is easily accessible from any computer, smartphone or tablet. I can import images, verb charts, worksheets, PDF and doc files, ebooks and videos as needed. Using the tools, you and I will both be able to edit, write and draw on the materials and add any additional notes, links or resources.

Ongoing speaking evaluations are done on a monthly basis and recorded so that students can see their progress over time. Additional assessments are available if requested.

Jun 2016 - Dec 2018
Universidad Antonio Caso

I worked part time as a Spanish teacher at a local university, which has a Spanish program for foreigners who came to Veracruz, Mexico. Students were adults, in either private classes or small groups (siblings or couples usually), of all levels and abilities. We focused on Spanish for immediate use around town so speaking from the first class was the top priority.

Carlos is a lot of fun in class. I feel like my Spanish has improved 300% since I started with him. I am more confident when speaking Spanish at work.

Maestro Carlos is an excellent teacher who is completely dedicated to giving his students a great experience. He is well prepared for class, professional and helpful. I really like the conversational materials that he comes up with. He finds really interesting websites, discussion boards, courses and articles that are actually from Mexico.

Carlos is Fantastic!!! I absolutely love my weekly lessons with him! The classes are hands on and interactive, not to mention he’s pretty funny and we end up laughing a lot. I am learning new words everyday and I look forward to my lessons and practicing with a native speaker.

Such a great, hands on class! Carlos takes his time and being able to hear the authentic accent of Mexico really helps me understand. I'm already using my new learned words everyday and I'm looking forward to learning more

I am so happy I decided to take classes with Carlos. He is patient and really helps me understand how to pronounce words. I currently am signed up to take a class once a week and I thoroughly enjoy the lesson. It is very interactive and I am learning more and more every week. Now that I am learning more with the help of Carlos, I'm super excited for my trip to Mexico this year to show off all I've learned.

I have known Carlos for over 5 years when I first took lessons with him while traveling abroad. He is an excellent instruction, with unlimited patience and makes people feel immediately comfortable in his presence. His voice is clear and understandable which helps a lot.
