I received my Bachelor degree in Hospitality and Tourism and my Masters degree in Administrational Education from Universidad de La Salle Bajio, Mexico. I have been teaching Italian, Spanish and ESL to teenagers, adults, and elders which has been a great experience full of pleasure and fulfillment. With my passion for languages I am able to share with you my love for them that will not only help you understand them in a easy and practical way, but also to have fun while learning. I center my lessons around developing strong listening, reading, speaking, and writing skills every session, and I always motivate and encourage students to study and practice on their own. This helps students to not only memorize and understand new vocabulary, but also how to use it. I am available to tutor Spanish 1, Spanish 2, Spanish 3, Spanish 4, ESL, English and Italian. In my free time, I love to travel, which helps me pick up casual phrases and slang from specific places around the world that I can share with you.
