About Christelle L.

Bienvenido/a a mi perfil. Me llamo Christelle y soy profesora. ¡Encantada!

My name is Christelle and I was born in Argentina and also lived in Spain. I moved to the US in 2016.

I am an Spanish and English as a Foreign Language Teacher and freelance illustrator with over 10 years of experience in teaching children and teenagers of all backgrounds, abilities and nationalities. I have experience with children as young as 1 y/o, one-to-one lessons, small and large groups, as well as virtual teaching.

I am currently working as a Spanish and Art teacher in a private school in Seattle, Fusion Academy. I work with high-schoolers who struggle learning in conventional learning environments.
I also have a Master in Teaching Spanish as a Second Language and a Spanish Teacher certification from International House Barcelona. I am an official DELE (Diploma of Spanish as a Foreign Language) examiner certified by Instituto Cervantes.

Look for me in LinkedIn for more information about me and check my art Red Summers Tea in social media.


I can help you improve your current level of Spanish, help your children with Spanish at school, or teach you Spanish from scratch! I also have experience teaching children of Spanish speakers learn more about their family's language.

I live in Mountlake Terrace and I work all around that area. I meet most of my students in local coffee shops like Starbucks, but at-home lessons are possible as well.


It would depend on your goals. School tutoring usually requires less time because Spanish at school is extremely basic and it’s doesn’t really lead to fluency in the language. Anything else needs a greater degree of commitment! I meet my students for one hour once or twice per week AT LEAST.

For school tutoring I try to adapt to your school’s method. For other types of lessons, I prefer avoiding translation and memorization and make use of effective Spanish textbooks, technology, games and free conversation.

I mostly teach Monday-Friday from 3:30PM to 6:30PM.

I understand flexibility is convenient and appreciated, so I allow rescheduling and cancellations in case of emergency or with enough advance notice. I recommend students to stick to their agreed schedule if they want to achieve their goals, even if that means to meet at another time during that same week. If I am already on my way to your lesson and you need to cancel, I will charge for the lesson. If you’re going to be late, please let me know, and I can’t guarantee that I can stay later than our scheduled time.

During our first lesson we will take time to go over any important information, set our goals and answer questions regarding nature of our lessons. We can talk about fees and teaching materials during this lesson as well.

For any more details or any questions, please don’t hesitate contacting me!

We found Christelle on this website and could not be more thrilled. She was able to meet all of our requirements in an art tutor, speaking perfect Spanish to my daughter and always energetic during the lessons. My daughter cannot wait for the next lesson to come every week!
