About Ra R.

Hola! My name is Ra. I am a dancer, poet, and educator. On Take Lessons I specialize in teaching conversational Spanish. I am from Puerto Rico, and grew up between PR and New York City. I graduated from The New School University and lived abroad several years teaching language in Bilingual Schools. As a Teaching Artist I aim to help my students become more comfortable and achieve their goals with our sessions. *When booking me for Spanish Lessons please note that I focus ONLY on conversational Spanish. I work with students who have a basic/beginner knowledge of Spanish and are looking to practice conversation and improve their skill.*

I elected to choose an online Spanish teacher for my daughter Arianna who is nine years old - after unsuccessful locating a local Spanish speaking class/teacher. Haven't had any experience with online teachers, I asked Take Lessons to recommend a Spanish native speaker from Puerto Rico. I needed to find someone who understands and is very familiar with the pronunciation of the Latin dialect. Ra's focus is conversational language; however, she was more than willing to take on the challenge of starting from the beginning with the basics, such as the alphabet, number, months, etc. and building into conversational sentences with Arianna. She is extremely easy to interact with, soft-spoken, and processes a genuine love of teaching. My daughter looks forward to their weekly meetings while embracing her Latin roots. We are immensely pleased with Ra. We would highly recommend her without reservation. Sincerely, The Lopez Family
