Hello, my name is Amarillis. I am a native speaker of Spanish from Mexico. I have a degree in linguistics and Hispanic literature from the Spanish Institute of Puebla.

I have been teaching Spanish since 2014 at all levels and to ages from children to seniors. I specialize in teaching test preparation (DELE), Spanish for tourism and Spanish for teachers.

Besides teaching I enjoy reading, especially Cortázar and García Márquez. I also like music, watching Korean drama and anime, and going to the gym.

Teaching Spanish as a second language since 2014.

I speak a total of 2 languages:
Spanish (Native), English (Intermediate) and French (Basic).

I've visited or lived in the following countries: Mexico

"3 years and still going. I started with Live Lingua with no experience in Spanish, and just a few months ago I went to Peru for vacations, and everybody was really impressed with my Spanish level. It felt great." Ann Marie L. - Trader

"I am retired, and one of my life goals in live was to get the superior certificate [on the DELE exam]. I studied in a number of immersion schools in Spain and Argentina, and even took some of their DELE courses, but I was never able to pass to this final level. Thankfully one of the students I had class with in Spain mentioned you guys. I am glad I found you, and thank you for helping me pass this last hurdle. I would definately recommend Live Lingua for DELE tutoring." Ingrid B. - Retired

"[My Spanish Teacher] is probably the best teacher I have ever had." Igna C. - Airline Hostess

"Even at my age it is possible to learn a new language. My teacher knows how to push me just enough to keep me learning but no so much that I get discouraged. So far it has been a wonderful experience." John A. - Judge
