I believe that languages are a huge part of our cultural identity as well as having an essential role in our societies. Learning a second language is very helpful but learning about the cultures that speak it takes it to a whole other level. I aproach learning languages with a cultural background. The art and traditions will give the student a deep understanding of how to connect with these societies.
I enjoy sharing the knowledge I have acquaried over the years. I also apreciate the oportunity to connect with other people and help them develop new skills as well as new prespectives.

Every student is different and I believe making a lesson plan focused on the indivual needs of the student is the most successful path. We first will meet or talk on the phone and then figure out what the best plan of action to take.
I am originally from Mexico city and have been working on keeping my Spanish skills up to date ever since I came to Chicago 20 years ago. I also already teach at a few public school where I create musical programs teaching Mexican songs in the spanish language.
Every situation is different and the pricing is something that can be discussed on the first acounter. Usually it will be an hourly rate.

From pre-K to Adults, special needs, various ethnicities, and all energy levels.
Traveling is always an exciting experiences! Last spring I traveled to many cities in Japan and it was a truly magical experience! I actually met with some Japanese there and they only new spanish as a second language.
Clear communication is always key. I advice to have a honest conversation about expectations and overall interests. Getting to know the student's passions will help create a more dynamic lesson plan.
What is the goal of learning this language? How will it help my every day life? Ask about experiences the teacher has had where knowing spanish has helped him.
