Would you like to learn Spanish but don't know where to start? Do you already know Spanish but need to get more practice? Do you need a tutor to get ready for a Spanish test? My lessons are personalized according to learners' needs, interests and language level (beginners, intermediate or advanced), fostering a friendly learning environment where learners feel motivated to use the language freely.
I plan my lessons in a way that learners are given opportunities to use the language in situations that resemble those of real life. Activities are varied and engaging so that learners are motivated to get actively involved in class. I include games, songs, interactive audiovisual aids, etc. to avoid monotony and make learning an enjoyable experience for students.
I have more than 10 years of teaching experience and I constantly enroll in continuing training programs and courses to improve my skills and teaching pratices. I have a Bachelor's degree in language teaching, a Master's degree in Media Education and I hold certifications to teach English and Spanish as foreign languages.
I have taught in face-to-face, blended and online learning environments, teaching individual private lessons and also managing groups of 10 to 40 students.
I want you to know that before being a language teacher, I am a language learner. I am a fluent speaker of English and Italian, and I am currently learning Korean. It’s been so rewarding to learn other languages and be able to fluently communicate with people from different cultural backgrounds, that I decided to become a teacher and help others learn a new language, overcome difficulties they may encounter and transmit the same passion and love I have for languages to my students.

Mrs. Torres was my professor at the university, she has been one of the best teachers I've had. She is very devoted to her students and their learning process. She has many positive characteristics, she is very patient and she really cares, she is passionate and she is always happy. I absolutely recommend her because she makes you want to improve and she pushes you to be better.
It is a great pleasure for me, Kerlyn Burgos, to write this academic recommendation to support my dear former teacher Gabriela Torres as an outstanding language professor. I am pleased to know her for six years, she was my teacher in various language classes in college. At all times, she demonstrated mastery of each of the subjects she taught. I was impressed with the responsibility and commitment to their students from the beginning to the end of the academic term. In addition, she never forgets her students, when she has the opportunity, she involves them in different academic activities outside the classroom to help them in their development and acquisition of different academic experiences. She is very patient with her students and always tries to simply explain a topic until the students fully understand it. Taking a language class with her is a wonderful and meaningful experience!
Grabiela’s lesson was so much fun and interactive. I consider myself an introverted student but in class, she made me feel home. I got that feeling of confidence and freedom to make mistakes because she was there to help me learn and grow, all with patience and love that only a unique and authentic teacher has. With her, you’ll start learning from the very first minute of class. She does not waste any opportunity to teach you something new; especially using REAL LIFE EXAMPLES. Plus, she is fluent in more languages so I gained not only a view of the Spanish language and culture but also a view of other languages and how these languages are somehow connected to one another, a fact that boosted the class learning environment. In short, I really enjoyed her lesson! Do not hesitate to choose her, she IS a SUPERPROF!!
I met Gabriela when she became my instructor in college and if I had to describe her with one word, it would be excellence. Gabriela is a very passionate person who enjoys teaching and always gives her best. She cares about her students and their learning. She adapts to her student’s needs and makes sure her approach is being effective. Besides, she is a lot of fun and keeps her class interesting. If I had to rate her from one to ten, it would be an undeniable ten. I had plenty of instructors in college but very few like her. With Gabriela, you will have the best teacher you could ask for.
