My name is Christian Damian Avolio, a native Spanish speaker from Buenos Aires, Argentina. I have been teaching Spanish as a second language for 7 years and counting. I am fluent in Portuguese and I am currently learning Mandarin. I love teaching the pleasure of learning languages to my students. I personally believe that pleasure makes learning more effective and lasting. I like to use a communicative method, so you can start talking from the beginning. I think it is essential to focus my classes on the needs of my students, so that the result is more productive and satisfying. I teach all levels and ages. I know that there is no age limit to learn a language; it only takes time and desire. I believe that being patient and respectful are two very important virtues for every good teacher
So feel free to schedule a class with me and let´s talk!
