¡Hola! My name is Gustavo. I am a native Spanish speaker from Cuernavaca and I'm currently living in Mexico City. I have a degree in Hispanic Literature and Teaching Spanish from the Universidad Internacional in Cuernavaca and a master’s degree in Spanish from Cleveland State University in the U.S. I have been teaching Spanish to students of all levels and ages since 2004. My students have come from many places all around the world.

I specialize in teaching professional Spanish, Spanish for tourism, Spanish for business, medical Spanish, Spanish for teachers and Spanish for priests. I also can help students with test preparation for the DELE or ECELE.

Outside of teaching, I love sports, traveling, and spending time with my family.

"I teach high school Spanish, but I sometimes don't feel comfortable enough with my spoken Spanish in the classes. This is primarily because I don't have anybody to practice with, and going to Spain once a year for 2 weeks of immersion is simply not enough for me to keep my level up. But [my Spanish teacher] is great and now that I can speak with her twice a week, I feel much better in my classes as well. She has even given me some great ideas for activities to do with my students!" Claire S. - Spanish Teacher

"Muchisimas gracias por las clases de espanol. Voy a pasar mis vaccaciones en Mexico y ahorra tengo mucha confiansa en mi nivel communicativo. Gracias, gracias, gracias." Neils De T. - Student

"I am a Spanish teacher in the U.S. but I was not able to practice my Spanish with a native speaker, Live Lingua was the answer to my prayers, and it is very affordable!" Janet R. - Teacher

"I have been using Live Lingua for the past few years to provide the staff at my medical practice with Spanish lessons to deal with all of our hispanic clients. The staff love it, and the clients love that all of our staff can now speak Spanish." Joanne Z. - Doctor
