Hola. I'm Sergio and I'm studying a bachelors degree in Linguistics and Hispanic Literature in Universidad de Guanajuto. I studied German for seven semesters in the same university, English and Esperanto for several years on a self-taught basis, and I'm currently learning italian. I was living in Australia and India for some time but now I'm back in Mexico. Learning new languages is one of my favorite activities, as well doing yoga, to skate and to talk about almost anything.
Me as a Teacher
Everybody is different and the best way to learn a language is by identifying how you learn the best. We can always talk about topics you are interested in, but learning grammatical structures is essential and with the right method really simple. My goal as a teacher is to make you feel as comfortable in spanish as you feel speaking you native language.
My lessons & teaching style
My classes are designed to be one hour sessions, where we will learn: vocabulary of your interest, grammar in a simple way, pronunciation and conversation. If you continue with me, I could give you some homework to reaffirm what we have learned during class.
Sergio always prepares exercises for me that are super helpful.

Sergio, thank you for a lovely first lesson together that exceeded my already high expectations! I'm really looking forward to more. Even though I'm a beginner, you gently pushed me out of my comfort zone and put my Spanish speaking and listening skills to the test right off the bat. I could definitely feel my brain working in overdrive and making new synapses on the spot. We somehow managed to conduct the majority of the lesson in Spanish, which was a very welcome surprise and a really rewarding feeling. Our conversation on daily life and future plans allowed me to acquire a lot of useful vocabulary straight away, and our chat about hobbies and passions was really fun - we even established common interests which we can explore in the future! Lastly, thank you very much for the warm, kind, and positive energy that you brought to the lesson. It made me feel safe to try things out, make mistakes, and learn.
