ExperienceHi! Thanks for visiting my profile. I'm a bilingual (English-Spanish) instructor and offer tutoring and writing/editing/proofreading services in both languages. I can help you with your essays, school or scholarship applications as well as with classes and study strategies, preparation for CELPIP exams and other.
I usually teach online, but if you're in Vancouver, Canada, we can meet in person. I'll be happy to put my 20 years teaching experience at your service.
You can check below the feedback from some of my students and clients:
”Lucía is a patient and enthusiastic teacher. My son started his first year of Spanish when he was a grade-5 student at school. That meant he had only a few months to catch up with Spanish from grade 1 to grade 4. It was a ‘mission impossible’ for my son. However, with Lucía’s hard work and teaching, my son’s mark in Spanish went from level 2 to level 5 within few weeks. It’s amazing. She is a great teacher.”
"She is excellent at getting a student to speak and practice, excellent at breaking down the grammar to help the student build their skill level and was always on time and with great energy."
"Lucía is a great instructor. She always uses different techniques, which keeps the classes interesting."
”Thanks to your help, my children have improved their English greatly. And my children are very satisfied and pleased with you and your teaching.”
”Thank you for your wonderful help and assistance and for being soooo supportive. A brief guidance from you = more than multiple lectures from a prof!"
”Excellent service and good advice. Lucía helped me with my application essays, giving me insights into how to be more engaging and persuasive.”

HobbiesI read a lot and love what I do, so, in addition to being my work, writing & languages are also activities that I do for fun. Of course, that makes sense if you're interested in other peoples and cultures and you love traveling, as I do. I'm always looking as well at international socioeconomical, political & environmental issues. Whenever I've time, I'm always up for dancing, arts, films, yoga and biking.
