YOUR SPANISH TEACHER ONLINE
¡Hola! Soy Alicia
I love working with people. I aim to inspire and get the best out of each of my students while having fun along the way.
My professional life has always revolved around teaching Spanish, but my creativity has led me to other enriching experiences like dancing and composing choreography professionally, as well as owning a jewelry brand.
I enjoy making the «difficult» feel easy.
I am a Spanish teacher since 2001. I have also worked as a proofreader and even co-authored several books and academic articles on education.
Nevertheless, at the end of the day what I like most is teaching and helping students reach their goals. Teaching the Spanish language and researching the most effective learning methods is my thing.
This passion is exactly what I’ll be sharing with you in my online Spanish lessons.
I've worked with:
My teaching philosophy in 9 points
If you are committed to learning Spanish, I am twice as to help you.
I’m going to work on your pronunciation but not on your accent, you don’t have to sound like a native speaker because you are not. Your accent is good and make you special!
All students are individuals, and everyone learns in their own unique way. I use multiple methods of teaching to reach students, so that no one is left behind.
I love helping students find their own voice in Spanish.
There is no perfect Spanish textbook or method. I have filtered the good stuff after all my years of experience.
Enjoying interesting and fun lessons is the best motivation, no matter what your needs are: passing an exam, singing Ricky Martin songs, acquiring credits for college or improving your CV
All learning is emotional. without emotions, no learning can take place
Working with advanced levels shouldn’t be boring.
I believe we never stop learning, and I want my students to know we can learn from each other. So everyone contributes as a student, teacher, and thinker.
WHAT THEY SAID
A trial online Spanish lesson with Alicia left me with much motivation to finally go on improving my Spanish after a long learning break. So I decided on booking more classes with her. Today I had my first 60 minute class and already learned a lot!
I am very happy with Alicia´s way of teaching and it is very obvious she has much experience in teaching. She explains very well, has good materials and her pace to move forward is perfectly adapted to my needs. Thanks Alicia, you’re a great Spanish teacher online!
Very good class! Alicia is very prepared, explains things well, but also makes you think and figure things out instead of just telling you the answers. The lesson covered an interesting topic relating to current events in Spain and Spanish culture.
I really appreciated that she had materials prepared and referenced them during the lesson. I also appreciated that she encouraged me to speak the whole time-it was a real conversation. It is so important to choose a tutor that actually encourages you to speak and has the patience to listen to you even when you take a long time to choose a word. Alicia is that tutor. I look forward to taking more lessons with her.
Alicia is simply the best Spanish teacher online that you can find! Her lessons are fun and engaging with no pressure or having to be self conscious about speaking! She has a clear voice that is easy to understand and she speaks at a pace that is perfect for a new learner.
I felt as if we had known each other forever after our first lesson! After a few more lessons, the magic happened when I suddenly realized that I was actually speaking Spanish! Thank you Alicia for being a great teacher and mentor.
