Teaching since:

My passion is teaching languages. I am a certified teacher, and I enjoy working with students from different backgrounds and cultures. I believe every student has a talent, whether it is academic, artistic, or logical, 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.

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Spanish education and a Master's Degree in teaching foreign languages, and I am working on my PhD in Applied Linguistics. The subjects I offer are Spanish, English as a Second Language, and Romanian.

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

I just love Carmen's enthusiasm, dedication to share her knowledge with me, and her way of making sure we maximize our time together!

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.
