Hello everyone. My name is Leonardo. I am a native Spanish speaker from Venezuela and currently living in the beautiful city of Quito, Ecuador. I have a bachelor's degree in education and also a law degree. I have been teaching languages for the past 12 years at the high school and university.
I really love teaching languages and I would like to help you too. I customize my classes to meet the goals of that particular student.
For example, a lesson for a person wanting to practice conversational Spanish would be different than a lesson for someone wanting to focus on reading or someone wanting to focus on grammar practice.
When starting classes with a new student, I talk with them and discuss their current levels and overall goals with the language as well as their learning style. This is important because some people learn better by reading, others by doing, others by listening and so on. Then, i customize the lessons to fit their learning style and goals to help their Spanish improve as quickly as possible.
I can help you with areas including pronunciation, grammar, vocabulary, idioms, and fluency among others. I can also teach you strategies for quicker vocabulary acquisition and not only is the language taught, important cultural aspects and regional differences are incorporated into every lesson.
Learning a language doesn't have to be boring or monotonous. My classes are designed fun and engaging, while also being informative. I can help you learn or perfect your abilities to read, write, and have more fluent conversations in Spanish quicker than you thought because you will enjoy learning.
