Tertiary education native speaker to take you by the hand into the Spanish cultural ecosystem.

Methodology

My own teaching method, developed through hours of teaching, creates a solid foundation. Your learning path remains wide open and your progress to higher levels assured with this grounding initiation.
I reach for support in History and arts to keep the attention and excitement through the class. Music, literature, philosophy and current affairs are the core where the context of Spanish is extracted.

Background

Engineer, casual poet, reader, History student, amateur sociologist and anthropologist, purist.
I was born in Madrid after being conceived in Sydney. My dad is a connoisseur of Spanish history (one of the richest in the world as you will learn) so I grew up and was put to sleep with them.
