Why I Teach

Learning a new language is easier and more enjoyable when it is taught in a meaningful way. That’s why I firmly believe in teaching Spanish with a flexible approach that focuses on the needs of each learner. No matter their level, I encourage students to actively participate by using Spanish to formulate opinions, express ideas and defend positions. By making the learning experience more relevant through genuine communication, students discover that the nuances of Spanish come more naturally.
