I am from Guatemala, the country of Eternal Spring. It is a country with very hardworking and friendly people! I love to teach Spanish because I like to help students increase their professional opportunities so that they can communicate better with Spanish-speakers. Over time, I have met amazing people from whom I have learned a lot and I consider them not only my students, but also my friends. I am proud to be able to teach Spanish and my Guatemalan culture to everyone who is interested in learning more. I consider every student to be a window into the world because I see the world through them.
I enjoy listening to music, dancing, reading, traveling, walking in the mountains, and spending time with my family and friends. I especially love to cook traditional food from my country!

Hello, my name is Aracely and I live in Antigua Guatemala. I have been a Spanish teacher for more than 25 years and I have been teaching online for 16 years.

Thank you for studying Spanish. It is an honor for me to teach you because you all help me a lot and I want to help you. Thank you.
My experience as a Spanish teacher is very extensive as I have been teaching for over 25 years to a variety of students from different levels. I have the ability to teach students with different professions, ages, and interests, such as for work, travel, exams, or just to converse and continue to maintain their Spanish. I use creative and dynamic methods, such as flashcards, readings, videos, movies, and grammar exercises. We can focus on a variety of important topics, such as social, political, medicine, and popular literature.
I like to customize the lesson for each student where it allows them to expand and improve the language through grammar and conversation in a creative way. I also organize group discussions among my students for advanced practice opportunities.
