Loving what I do is what makes me an effective and popular Spanish Teacher/Tutor. As a Native Speaker of the target language, I had to learn English. Having had that experience, has helped me to relate to the difficulty involved in language acquisition and to become more compassionate with my students and their needs.
I have been teaching / tutoring successfully for over 15 years now. I have worked with students from elementary school - college level ( Undergrad/Grad). I have a Certificate in AP Spanish Literature, which is the highest level of High School Spanish.
Keeping in mind the needs and goals of my students, each class is designed to cater to the individual's needs. !Buena Suerte con su aprendizaje del idioma!

Ms. Catalina is an excellent teacher. I was worried about taking Spanish online, and she made me feel comfortable from the first day. She is very patient, and her tutoring helped me to gain more confidence in my ability to understand and speak Spanish.

I strongly recommend Catalina as a knowledgeable tutor She worked with my son, who was struggling with his Spanish Class. After working one on one with her, he was able to build up his confidence and started to excel in the subject. Even with his short attention span, her engaging and fun lessons kept him interested in going above and beyond. We're currently looking into sending him abroad to further his knowledge of the language and culture. At this point she's helping with his conversational skills.

Awesome tutor! Got right down to business, she's very thorough and energetic. With Spanish being her native tongue you get a lot more out of each session.
