Overview

My passion is teaching! I am a certified teacher, and I enjoy working with students from all types of background and cultures. I believe every student has a special gift, whether it is academic, artistic, logical, etc. and I bring out that talent through my personalized lessons. It does not matter how old you are or what language level you are at, we can have a great time learning a new language together. The subjects I am offering are Spanish, English as a Second Language, and Romanian.

Contact me, and we can create a curriculum specifically for you language needs.

Great first lesson! I'm looking forward to digging deeper into the verb tenses and to continue conversing in Spanish. Power point, Google, all sort of visuals have been used and they all made our lesson not just a virtual encounter but a real life experience. Thank you!

Ms. Carmen îs a great teacher. She is professional, kind, and accommodating. I also found her very easily approachable and willing to work with me even when I have questions not always related to our topic, such as grammar questions. She is also creative making technology an active part of our lessons.

Carmen is a fantastic instructor who designed a personalized lesson plan that helped me quickly (and effortlessly) increase my proficiency in Spanish, in preparation for a business trip to Barcelona. I would highly recommend Carmen to any potential students, regardless of your language proficiency or goals.
