About this Service

Hola! I'm Lio, a teacher and writer.

I teach Spanish in Brooklyn and online. I speak fluent English, French, and Portuguese and enjoy sharing the most straight forward and fun methods that I've used to learn them.

I design my lessons according to the topics of your needs, making sure to add bits of history, etymology, colloquialisms, and quirky phrases from different regions of the Spanish speaking world. To facilitate your falling in love with one of the prettiest languages on Earth, I'll offer you personalized materials including memes*, books, poems, songs, mexican food recipes, and a bit of Mexican/Aztec culture (did you know the word "chocolate" comes from Náhuatl, the Aztec language?). You'll tap into your mexican/latin@ self in no time.

Classes are $40/hour, online or in person. (For intensive courses with several hours per week we can negotiate a lower rate.)

We usually start with a first one hour intro class for $15, so I can assess your Spanish background/level and for us to find out if we'll be a good fit!

*the meme shown above references a poem by Aztec emperor and poet Nezahualcóyotl, that for many years appeared on the 100 pesos note.
