ABOUT

college students studying in classroomLearning a second language can sometimes be quite a difficult and painful process. We tend to try to force this new language structure on to the existing mental framework our brains have built for our mother tongue.

Instead, our teaching methods allow you to build new neural pathways and networks (not jam existing ones), so that words and language come to you easily. All this in an organic way that enables you to learn in harmony with how your brain is designed to work.

Our teaching methods are flexible and allows for the fact that each of us is different, with a unique blend of learning styles, goals and objectives. I work with each of my students in a structured way, using appropriate techniques, so that they learn the language to their desired level in the easiest and most efficient way possible for them.

ABOUT ME

IMG_128683448486542

I’m an academic spirit, I can’t help it. What I love the most in life is to be mind blown by knowledge. Particularly, I´m passionate about Spanish grammar and I have a strong background in it. I also love teaching and I´ve been doing it profesionally since 2006. At the moment, I´m conducting some linguistic research at University of Buenos Aires and co-directing a project on Spanish varieties. I will be at some point starting a PHD program.

I speak this much English, some Italian, and I resumed my Swedish studies a year ago, which is exciting! I am also interested in gender studies, politics, economy, and humanistic in general.

    Le hasard de la vie m’a fait rencontré Sofía. Quelle magnifique enseignante de la langue.Incoyable! En une leçon, sur une page, toute la conjugaison de tous les verbes espagnols. Avec tous les ‘irregulares’! Logique, claire, efficace. La leçon suivante, rebellotte, le ‘pretérito’ sur une page. J’arrête là mon énumération. Merci Sofía. PS. Il ne me reste ‘que’ travailler tout cela.

    Sofia,

    I’m interested in 2 hours of Spanish classes twice weekly. While I prefer an authentic classroom setting with all the structure of an academic environment, I don’t want intensive lessons like the ones offered in all the Spanish schools here in Buenos Aires. If you have a small group class at my level, that would be great. Alternatively, I’m willing to pursue private lessons (as long as they don’t become conversation-only sessions). I’m a complete nerd, and want to follow a syllabus, complete with grammar, comprehension, reading, writing, speaking, and listening.

    Do you come to student’s homes? If not, where are you? I live in Alto Palermo, and am unwilling to travel more than a few blocks. I have no car and really don’t want to have to rely on the terrible taxis.

    I’m a 57 year-old retired Obstetrician/Gynecologist. I’ve studied French and a tiny bit of Mandarin. I’ll be living in Buenos Aires for one year and want to continue Spanish lessons the entire time.
