I am a patient Spanish tutor and enjoy reading all kinds of books, magazines, newspapers etc. I love to walk an hour in the mornings and do any kind of exercise. I also like to spend time with my family when possible. I have taught Spanish for 18 years and teaching students of all ages is a wonderful experience with immense satisfaction.
During the Spanish lessons, I use communication methods that encourage students to actively participate in learning, emphasizing social and professional situations from real life. I teach grammar with clear explanations with simple assignments appropriate for any situation.
Teaching Experience: I started teaching Spanish in 1996 and have taught Spanish online via Speak Shop since 2005.
Degrees/Certificates/Courses Completed for Teaching Spanish
- 1997 - Techniques of Teaching Spanish as a Second Language for Foreign Students, Spanish Academy AmeriSpan
- 1997 - International Conference for Language Teachers, Professional Development, AmeriSpan Unlimited
Schedule: I am usually available:

"I have just returned to Speak Shop after a period of absence due to scheduling difficulties and computer problems but I believe that the break has made me appreciate the excellence of the service offered all the more. Leonor, my tutor, very quickly enabled me to resurrect a lot of the Spanish which I thought had evaporated in my absence from classes. I have nothing but praise for her and the very high quality of her teaching."

“I just completed my first lesson with Leonor, and I have no doubt that you guys are on the right track. I am a big believer that videoconferencing is the next big frontier in education, and Speak Shop appears to me the first and best of its kind…I love it, and I believe in it! Please keep up the good work.”

“I had my free lesson today with Leonor – she is terrific. This may be just the ticket for me and I will certainly tell my friends. Muchas gracias.”
