About the lesson

Music carries such a deep meaning and cultural richness I decided to include traditional and contemporary Latin American songs to help you learn this beautiful language, develop what you already know and enhance your expression.

If you enjoy music and are curious about Spanish, I'm sure you'll like these lessons!
---
What to expect of the course:
Lessons are tailor-made for your specific needs, level and objectives.
Our first lesson serves as an introduction to determine your goals, current level, areas of interest, difficulties, and abilities.

Each lesson is based on a different song or cultural topic presenting crucial elements for us to work on reading comprehension, written production, speaking, listening, pronunciation and phonetics.

Although I have my own selection of songs/topics for each student, you're very welcome to send your suggestions!

FYI: You're not required to sing along, but you can certainly do so if you enjoy it :)

I believe the most important thing is to feel motivated, thus I intend to provide exercises and give you resources and updated material about interesting topics, so you can keep on learning.

I will also give you homework to practice while you're on your own if you'd like to.
Feel free to e-mail me your doubts, and I'll be happy to answer back.

Now, let's begin...

A bit about myself: I'm 36 years old and I was born and raised in Argentina.
From a young age, I was passionate about languages, communication, World cultures and Arts.
I obtained a degree in English Translation in Buenos Aires at the Universidad del Salvador.

I love to travel and make music; this is how I get to meet people from all over the World and socialize really quickly in any circumstance.

I also speak Portuguese (intermediate level) and I am currently learning French.

I have been working as a language professional for more than 14 years.

Such a joy to see people expressing in a new language!

    When and why did you develop an interest in your chosen field?

    From early on I was very interested in learning foreign languages, as well as reading and writing. When I finished high school I decided to study English Translation at University. Being a translator implies devoting a lot of time and attention to your own native language; this gave me a powerful insight into my own mother tongue and inspired me to teach it to others as well.

  • 02

    What makes you passionate about your subject?

    I believe each language is a way of seeing the World; it's so much more than just a means of communication. I believe this is fascinating because when we learn a new language we also acquire a new perception of reality. I like to think of languages as keys to different cultures and cosmovisions.

  • 03

    What do you like about tutoring? What makes you a "Superprof"?

    I like to help other people. I see myself as a facilitator, someone who is there to guide and support the students in their learning process. It is very satisfying to see my students making progress and expressing themselves. I think what makes me a Superprof is that a provide a safe place for students, where they are encouraged to be themselves, practise without fear of making mistakes, and learn through different tools adapted to their own interests.

  • 04

    Do you have any role models; a teacher that inspired you? Please explain.

    I would say my role model is my high school English teacher. She quickly realized I had good language skills and encouraged me to take international exams, helped me to prepare for them, and introduced me to translation as a potential career path for me.
    The fact that she was able to observe this, follow up, and support me was very significant to my life.

    What are your keys to success?

    Patience, creativity, and keeping it fun and easy.
