I love working with students from different countries and cultures, specially teaching Spanish. I'm passionate about teaching language skills. I obtained my Teacher Certification and Master Degree from Interamerican University. I enrolled in Portland State University to learn about Curriculum and learning strategies.

I enjoy tutoring youths and adults. I'm very object-oriented so I will listen your request and guide you online or in person. My students learn with multiple tools: Online resources, audios, videos, presentations.

Great Experience, Great Teacher!

Gisela is always prepare with a great conversational class. After my first class I had plenty amount of resources to practice, she also gave me books and audios and review lessons with me. My personal goal was to have more Spanish skills and Gisela adjusted the lessons to my goals. She is a great teacher and a very nice person. I would recommend her classes.
