Diverse Spanish Instruction for All Levels and Ages
I am originally from a small town in Argentina called Santa Fe. For the last year, I’ve been teaching private and group classes at SF Spanish for both adults and children.
Teaching has always been my passion. In Argentina, I graduated as a lead teacher and worked for many years with kids, ranging from six to eleven years old. When I arrived to the United States, I worked as a child caregiver and taught Spanish to younger children.
My love for Spanish language led me to expand my horizons and teach adults. Teaching adults is something I find very fascinating, and I enjoy every second of it. In a usual class, I balance conversation with grammar, complementing my teaching with visual aids, games, stories, and videos.
In a children’s class, my students enjoy songs, poems, stories, games, dancing, videos, and projects. I adjust the activities depending on the level and age of the children in my class.

SF Spanish Teacher
I am from Spain, and I have more than 15 years of experience as a professional in the Communication and Literature fields as well as in teaching Spanish.
I’m constantly searching for different approaches to teaching my mother tongue. My other passions are travelling, books, and good wine.
My main goal is to continuously build my understanding of the wide network of Spanish cultures and expressions throughout the world. I’m thrilled to be able to share this amazing journey with the students of SF Spanish!
I’m Laura, and I’m from Venezuela. I used to teach at the University there, and I am happiest when sharing my knowledge of Spanish language and culture.
I came from beautiful Venezuela to San Francisco at the beginning of 2016. I believe this city is the perfect place to be free and meet people from everywhere.
In 2015, I spent a few month in Paris, where I had the opportunity to learn French. This is now added to my list of languages I know, including English and Spanish.
I enjoy spending time with friends, reading, and watching movies. I also love fashion, traveling, and the beach. I have been to Argentina, Colombia, Chile, Austria, Spain, France, England, and Germany. I think that traveling is the best way to learn about people, languages, and cultures.
When I teach Spanish I'm pretty relaxed, enthusiastic, and patient. One of the reasons that I enjoy teaching Spanish is because it gives me a way to share my culture, spreading awareness of the Venezualan way of life.
Sf Spanish Teacher
I am originally from Peru and have lived in different countries throughout my life. As a result, I speak Spanish, English, and German. I also have vast experience as a professional in the Communications, Training, and Teaching fields.
I have a profound passion for languages, teaching, and meeting people from different cultures, because I believe that gives me a better understanding and awareness of our world. I enjoy teaching Spanish because it allows me to pursue that important goal and to share my culture with you!
I also enjoy travelling, writing, music, yoga, tennis, surfing, and a pleasant conversation with a glass of good beer or wine.
I lived one year in Germany and one year in North Carolina as an exchange student, and ten years in Santiago de Chile, where I got my B.S. in Economics. All of these life experiences made me feel like a constant citizen of the world, and now I am immensely grateful to live in such tolerant, diverse, inclusive, and beautiful city as San Francisco!
