Teacher of Spanish as a Foreign Language for more than 8 years in both online and traditional classroom environments.
I'm well experienced in Second Language Acquisition and how to teach in different ways according to the student’s personalities and needs. I've learned to interact and communicate with people from different countries and cultures, with people who have very different needs and expectations about the Spanish language.
Teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language is my true passion. I am very happy to know that my students receive a quality tutoring in my native language and a cultural experience of Latin America in a traditional classroom lesson or in an online environment.

Because of its effectiveness, my approach is based on the Communicative Method known as "Total language immersion". That means that lessons take place entirely in Spanish.The emphasis is on the use of Spanish in different realistic contexts by learning and improving four basic skills: Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing.
Great first lesson. Carlos really helped with an oral presentation and gave very useful feedback. Thank you.
Carlos es una persona muy simpático. I really enjoyed the lesson with Carlos and he made me talk a lot, even though it was a lesson after a long pause and I was a bit rusty and nervous of speaking Spanish. I can highly recommend him!
Ayer hice el examen DELE. Me sentí tranquilo después de poco tiempo estudiando con Carlos y estoy seguro de que todo va bien. Gracias a Carlos!
What a wonderful lesson. It was structured and organised. Carlos was wonderfully well-prepared. He was fun, professional and kind! I learned so much in just this one lesson. I can't wait to have my next lesson with him
