Spanish Private Lessons
Whether you just need some brushing up on your Spanish skills, or are completely new to the Spanish language, I will offer a customized program to create your desired level of fluency. My private tutoring sessions are designed to be taken at each student’s own pace, and I always incorporate materials and teaching tools that will adequately address the strengths and weaknesses of each of my students.
Each session can be conducted in person, or virtually if you’d like to stay in the comfort of your home.
Spanish Courses for Corporations
Executive program – Focused on executives and business owners with a very practical application.
As the Spanish-speaking population continues to grow exponentially in the US, it is essential that businesses promote a culturally inclusive and diverse environment for both customers and employees.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
I have been working with Natalie consistently now for 11 months and she has boosted my Spanish skills to the next level. I had studied Spanish for 5 years in high school and college but after a 20 year break I was very rusty. I was only expecting Skype lessons but she has provided much more than that. She regularly sends focused grammatical topics in areas where we find weaknesses, pertinent idiomatic expressions, and frequent emails keeping me motivated. Natalie also has a very smooth and subtle way of keeping you challenged as your skills progress. She challenged me to read a novel in Spanish and amazingly I was able to read two. On top of high quality instruction we have a great time. I plan to continue studying with Natalie. March 3, 2017• Verified Review
Nat is the best Spanish teacher I've had, and I've had many! I took Spanish lessons in high school and college and forgot a lot of what I learned. I've been working with Nat for about half a year now and I've noticed drastic improvement! Not only, she makes learning fun. She's a really funny, down to earth, and interesting person. So you don't feel like you're studying, you feel like your chatting with a friend. She takes this very seriously and will provide you information as much as you can learn. So if you want daily homework, she will send it to you. I have a full time job and a kid, so I can't study as much. So the materials that Nat sends me, are always very useful and to the point. I highly recommend her!

Nat is a wonderful teacher. As a native of Spain and former resident of Mexico, she has unmatched local knowledge of the intricacies of the Spanish language as it relates to Latin America and Spain. Beyond this, she shares in-depth regional cultural experiences that complement topics of business in the international environment. My fluidity in Spanish has increased greatly just over the past few months. Nat's patience and goal for personalized curriculum has helped me to accomplish that. She challenges her students each session, stretching their comfort just enough to confidently excel to the next step!
