About this pro


Would you like to learn conversational Spanish in a fun, easy and fast way outside of the classroom? 

Sofia Life Academy currently has 2 Spanish teachers. About our team:

Sofia is currently a real estate agent. However, she loves teaching, especially Spanish. She was a medical interpreter and health educator for Parkland Hospital for 17 years, and was able to teach the nurses how to speak Spanish and have conversations with their patients. Her teaching method is not your typical classroom setting. Instead, she goes directly to what will help you in your career, travel or personal daily life. Sofia believes Spanish is one of the easiest languages to learn. Also, practicing is very important, and she will be teaching you conversations, reading and spelling.

Bryan is super talented in learning and teaching languages. He currently speaks English, Spanish, Porguese, French, and Haitian Creole. He's amazing at teaching you conversational Spanish. You will definitely feel you are learning from the best teacher who is patient and great at explanining languages. 

Just let us know what you want to focus on and we will go from there. Look forward to having you speak perfect Spanish on the first day! 

"Enjoy teaching others my native language. Love seeing my students be able to communicate with others from the different Latin American countries, be able to obtain a raise, a better position or job, or travel to other countries. Learning Spanish is one of the best investments, especially if you live in Texas or want to travel. There are many Latin American countries you could visit or retire."... Sofia

How did you get started teaching?

While I was a medical interpreter, I started teaching nurses Spanish to be able to communicate with their patients. At first they learned some Spanish to start the intake process and eventually, enough Spanish to where they did not need my interpretation services. I was very proud of them!
