I've taught Spanish in Chicago since 2006. I am a native Spanish speaker from Peru. I lived in Chicago for 14 years so I can explain Spanish words and grammar using English. My approach to teaching Spanish is to treat the class as a conversation. I can tailor the class according to your needs and learning style. I teach online classes using Skype or Whatsapp because most of the time I am overseas.
I have fun teaching my language, explaining Latin culture and having conversations with my students.
- B.A. Benson, nonprofit consultant Working with Deborah has been a great joy. Her classes focus on speaking and listening. If you are like me that is something that you never really did in a school language class. She tailors each class to focus on my specific goals for Spanish (for me it is the medical profession). She balances very well the review of old material against the challenge of new material. It was always very clear that for me to learn Spanish was something that was very important to her. If you care about learning the language and you are willing to put in the necessary time then you will not be able to find a better teacher/tutor to guide you through the process.
I teach how to have a conversation because a language is practice, practice, practice.
