Meet your Latina Spanish teacher! I have 3 years of experience teaching my language to foreigners.

Hi! I'm Xiomara.
I’m from Medellin Colombia where I currently live. I'm a professional language teacher, illustrator and fashion designer by trade. I am an extremely passionate person who loves art, culture and learning other people’s cultures!
I teach Spanish to students of all levels, those just starting off up to the most advanced level of Spanish learners. I particularly specialize in teaching Spanish to adults who are learning Spanish as their 2nd or 3rd language (though I am open to taking on children students as well!).
Me as a Teacher
I have been teaching Spanish virtually and in person for close to 5 years and during that time I have seen incredible progress in my students (please see my video with a few of my student’s reviews if you’re interested).
My methodology of my classes are 100% tailored to each student’s personal tastes, preferences and strengths. My classes are focused on the use of real life scenarios, “commonly spoken” phrases and expressions, and listening to native teachers how they speak naturally.
My classes are not for those looking to practice conjugation tables, memorize vocab or any other “traditional” methods of foreign language learning commonly taught to adults.
My lessons & teaching style
What I will be focusing on is teaching you what you actually need to know in order to listen, understand, and interact with natvie Spanish teachers quickly!
I put a lot of emphasis on helping my students achieve a good natural sounding level of “tonality” when speaking so that they feel more secure when putting the language into practice in a very friendly and relaxed environment to make learning actually fun!
In my lessons I use a mixture of different methods to help you achieve the level of Spanish you desire such as: conversation practice, tonality training, listeting, reading, grammar and vocabulary.
I hope you choose me as your teacher!

Xiomara makes learning so much easier. The routine conversation and explanations help so much to reinforce the lessons I do on my own. Absolutely the best to practice regularly with a native speaker. Highly recommended!
