I'm a native Colombian with 9 years of experience teaching Spanish to students of all ages and many different nationalities. My teaching methods focus on real-world experiences to develop robust, practical language skills that will serve you in your daily life. I love to get to know my students, and I will always personalize your lessons to your interests, needs, and goals. Whether you want to learn Spanish for work, travel, or fun, I can help you get there!

About jeison G.

I'm a native Colombian with over 10 years of experience teaching Spanish and English as foreign languages. Teaching languages is my calling, and my mission is to make learning fun and effortless, even if you've struggled to learn a language in the past.

-- Why study with me --

1. Every lesson is tailored to your goals and interests.

We'll focus on topics and contexts that are relevant to your life, so you can apply what you learn immediately.

2. Culture is built into the process.

Learning a language is participating in the culture of the people who speak it--their social customs, food, music, clothing, places, history, and more!

3. You'll get as much rigor as you need.

My curriculum aligns with the international Spanish proficiency exam system (ELE), so I can prepare you to use Spanish in the most demanding contexts if that's your goal. But if you want to learn Spanish for travel or casual conversation, we'll focus on practical applications, not esoteric academics.

-- Who I am --

As a kid in Colombia, I taught myself English with American TV, movies, music, and video games. My teaching career started in middle school, when my friends turned to me for help in English class. I knew teaching was the path for me, and I went on to earn Bachelor's and Master's degrees in teaching foreign languages.

I've taught Spanish to children, teenagers, tourists, college students, business executives, and even international diplomats. I now live in the US with my wife, and I still love American TV, movies, music, and video games. I also love sports (especially soccer and football), food, and sharing my passion for education.

Jeison took the time to get to know me and understand my reasons for wanting to learn Spanish and the struggles I've had with it in the past. He helps me learn the kind of Spanish I need, not just the standard textbook stuff, and he makes it fun instead of frustrating!
