Eliza Cortez, teacher from San Pedro la Laguna, Guatemala

"Soy maestra de español desde hace 10 años. Me encanta enseñar. Me gusta que el estudiante se sienta cómodo en las clases. Yo me puedo adaptar a las necesidades del estudiante. Por ejemplo, si quiere estudiar español para trabajar en un hospital, para ganar un examen de la universidad, para viajar, etc."


I met Eliza while studying at the San Pedro Spanish School in Guatemala, and she really does adapt to your needs. I LOVE creating lessons with Eliza!

Gloria Becerril, Spanish teacher from Mexico

"He trabajado como profesora de español por 5 años, principalmente enseñando español, aunque también he enseñado portugués y inglés."


I met Gloria through La Comunidad, an online Spanish school for intermediate to advanced students of Spanish. If you want to master your conversational skills and always speak with correct grammar, take classes with Gloria. She knows her stuff!
