Teaching Approach

I think of my job as coaching a person in the process to become a Spanish speaker. And we become speakers as we start to speak, and we do that from the very first moment in my lessons.

We all started speaking wrong when we were toddlers--everyone's mother language, I mean. But that inaccurate speaking let us engage in conversation with others already speaking it, and so we could learn from those interactions. Now, learning a second language usually occurs in a different environment, but the basic process is the same--we need to speak. And to hear.

These days we have many resources to hear native Spanish speakers--online radios, YouTubers, movies, TV series, and so on. We may come across now and then--or maybe even daily--with native Spanish speakers and give it a try--starting with a simple 'Buenos días' and evolving, along time, with no limit.

In class--which I nickname 'the lab'-- we hold a real-life conversation about things that you actually want to talk about, based on your life or interests. When necessary for your learning process, we put on hold our discussion so that we can work on it. Then, we work on the understanding, the vocabulary, the grammar-- all the elements necessary to evolve from a 'toddler' to a fluent and confident Spanish speaker.

Enjoyed the class. I liked how Guillermo describes himself as being a guide for what I want to learn. He certainly modeled that. I look forward to more classes.

I have been taking classes from Guillermo for more than five years, and it has been excellent for both improving my Spanish (including vocabulary, grammar, and pronunciation) and deepening my appreciation and understanding of Argentine (and Latin-American) history and culture. Guillermo is very easy to work with, and I always enjoy our wide-ranging conversations. I highly recommend him as a tutor for any level, from basic to advanced.
