¡Hola a todos!

Me llamo Feliz y soy profesora de español.

I've been teaching Spanish for 10 years to students, travelers and ex-pats in Spain, Nicaragua, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Peru and the US. As a learner of Spanish, I bring years of study and experience to my teaching and offer a traveler's-sized backpack full of tools and tricks to help fellow learners understand and use the Spanish language effectively and enjoyably.

Working with me, you'll find that I am a passionate, patient and personable teacher whose greatest joys are found in connecting with and supporting students in achieving their goals and cultivating greater confidence along the way.

Whether you are a high school or college student seeking academic support or would like to improve your Spanish for work, travel, or communication with Spanish-speaking colleagues, friends and/or family, I'd love to support you in learning and loving the Spanish language.

Each of my students receives a customized curriculum, a toolbox of resources to help you improve your speaking, listening, reading and writing skills, as well as fun, interactive lessons and insights and anecdotes from a seasoned teacher and traveler whose love of foreign languages, people and pedagogy enliven each of my lessons.

Entonces...¿qué esperas? What are you waiting for?? :)

¡Nos vemos!

I worked with Feliz to take my Spanish speaking from a beginner to an intermediate level. I was mostly conversational but was missing some key lessons and learnings to be able to feel confident in a professional environment. Feliz made it so easy and convenient for our lessons by coming to my home and working with my busy work schedule. Her methods were great. She honed in really quickly on what level I was at and got right to business giving me the tools I needed to confidently move to the next level. She was also so much fun and brought tons of laughs to each lesson. I highly recommend her!

After a few sessions with Liz I think what stands out to me most is her positive attitude. She’s always enthusiastic about the sessions and seems genuinely invested in my success and goal to learn this language, always providing encouragement and useful feedback. I was also impressed with the authenticity Liz brings to our lessons by drawing on her past experiences traveling Central and South America, giving me a better appreciation for the cultures from which the language comes from. I initially wanted to learn more Spanish to help with work, but now I’m considering some plans for travel as I continue to be inspired by her exciting stories & creative insights. Liz is patient and knowledgable and I always look forward to our weekly sessions. ¡ Gracias Liz!

We traveled to Nicaragua to immerse ourselves in Spanish and the culture.
Liz was our tutor for 6 weeks.

We have used a couple of tutors and have attended immersion schools and so this was a great comparison for us.

Liz has a special way of teaching and passion that kept our learning fun and progressive.

Its not always easy to just sit in front of a book, so Liz brings a different approach and touch. She is creative and adaptive to each persons needs.
We were sad when we had to leave, but it was not goodbye just "hasta luego"
