Hola Chicos y Chicas, I want to let you know teaching Spanish is my passion. I am from Costa Rica, and have been teaching Spanish for more than 10 years. I have a Master's degree in Teaching Spanish. Helping my students meet their language goals is my top priority. I have taught middle schoolers, high school and university students, business and medical professionals, and seniors. We will concentrate on your conversational and comprehension skills so you are able to communicate in Spanish both speaking and listening. Of course you need to learn the structure of the language, and I love teaching grammar and I make it easy to learn. In Costa Rica we have the expression "Pura Vida", which means life is great. I extend you to this greeting Pura Vida, and hope to meet you soon.

Traveling is my number one interest. I have travelled to Europe, Egypt, Israel, China, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, and countries in South America. When I can, I take every opportunity to travel to a new destination. Here in the U.S. I have visited many states. I love New York, California, Colorado, and Louisiana. I enjoy working out. I just moved to Houston, and I want to join the Y so I can use their exercise equipment. In Costa Rica, I liked river rafting, kayaking, and hiking through the nature reserves. And, of course, like many of you, I spend time chatting with my friends on social media.
