Translation - Interpreting - Instruction
My classes are designed for adult learners with an intuitive approach. Class sizes are small to allow for more interaction with each student. Whether you are starting the language from scratch, or want to improve your fluency, my classes offer a variety of entry points.
With private lessons, we can focus on exactly what you'd like to achieve in your language learning. Lessons are available in person, or over Skype. These remote lessons let you take your Spanish learning with you. Study at your own pace with personalized instruction.
Interpreting and Translations
I can translate documents, contracts, interpret in-person meetings, and help you understand business documents and transactions. I can accompany you in-person for interpretation, or be available by phone.

"I struggled for years haphazardly trying to learn basic Spanish skills. Paulina helped me build the foundation skills I was unable cobble together on my own. She uses teaching materials developed specifically for communication in Mexican Spanish. She is a native speaker and a stickler for pronunciation, which really helps with hearing and understanding the spoken language. I just wish I had taken her class sooner!"
If you're considering learning Spanish, make the leap to join these classes. I have taken level 1 and level 2. You learn a lot, learn Mexican customs and social protocol, and the bonus of making new friends. Very worthwhile investment of your time. So happy I did it!
Acabo de terminar la clase de español 2 con Paulina. Me gusta mucho y aprendí mucho. Absolutamente vale la pena! See how much I learned from this amazing teacher?!
