Looking forward to a great, fun language journey with you. Online language lessons work perfectly regardless of your location in the world. You can commit to the process and become fluent from the comfort of your home or your workplace, which is also a good reason for me to use this platform and share it with new students internationally. I am from Mexico City. Language enthusiast, in the process of learning a 5th language (German) and beginning a 6th one (Russian) at the same time. I'm based in NYC. I currently teach online in different countries. As long as we have good connection, we get very good results. If you are serious about learning Spanish and would like to acquire fluency and independence applied to your own goals, we can complete full programs, fill in grammar gaps providing language certainty and accuracy, prepare for exams, clarify doubts, among other skills through applied linguistics: an interdisciplinary field which identifies, investigates, and offers solutions to language-related real-life problems. A few references on my current work and experience below:

Guadalupe is a wonderful instructor. She has a natural flair for language and her personal experience of the mental processes involved in learning a language makes her a gifted and understanding teacher. She combines a knowledge of linguistic structures with a sympathetic approach and has a unique ability to correct while at the same time encouraging and giving confidence. I recommend her highly.
