I base my lessons mainly on natural communication. Any grammar and vocabulary is studied withing an interactive framework, allowing you to use the language in as a natural a way as possible. Follow up lessons are given to ensure consolidation.
I am a Spanish teacher who graduated from the University of California, Los Angeles. I've been giving classes since 2008, so I have extensive experience, material, patience, and empathy to walk you step by step and successfully through your journey.
If I need to travel or prepare someone for a specific exam, the rates will be slightly higher. If you cancel at the last minute, you will be charged 50% of the lesson, the second time 75%, and the third time, 100%. By then, we would have to reconsider our relationship. I ask that if you do have to cancel, you let me know at least 24 hrs in advance. Otherwise, the above rates will apply. I am pretty reasonable with "out of the ordinary" situations, but let's try to play fair. Cheers!
