Learn Spanish from a native speaker! I teach the "neutral" Latin American Spanish, no specific accent. It is the Spanish spoken across all Spanish-speaking countries in Latin America. Once we determine what your goals and needs are, we will work to create the perfect class for you.

I also give personalized feedback after each class to help you with your practice outside of our lessons together.

¡Hola!

If you're reading this, you're probably interested in learning Spanish, am I right? Let me tell you something about myself and how I could help you with that!

I am an English and Spanish teacher and translator. I have been teaching Spanish as a second language for a few years now and I love the chance of helping people communicate in my native language, Spanish.

Helping with grammar, pronunciation and giving useful tips for a good communication experience are my favorite areas.

I love when students participate and are not afraid of making mistakes. After all, that’s how you learn a language!

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

¡Saludos!

Carlos has been tutoring my two kids (15 and 13) in Spanish for a few months now. Both of my kids attended a Spanish immersion school, so they are fairly fluent but still need a lot of practice. Carlos has been very patient with my kids, and willing to address any specific Spanish issues they have. I definitely recommend him as a tutor.

Carlos has a pleasant disposition and easy style about him making it a comfortable relationship. He immediately focused on understanding where I am in my Spanish speaking and then began working to push me forward. Not too fast, not too slow. Great start!

Carlos was absolutely fantastic. He quickly assessed my level of understanding and my ability to speak Spanish and catered the lesson accordingly. Additionally Carlos spoke clearly and concisely so I could understand him perfectly. He followed up the lesson with written notes so I could review what we covered. Really good teacher. Muchas gracias Carlos!

Carlos challenges me to not be shy and express myself to speak Spanish....whether I'm wrong or right. He is very knowledgeable and can easily explain words or sentences or concepts in terms that I can easily understand. Enjoying lessons with Carlos very much.
