My name is Alexa and Upper West Spanish is my creation.

Certified and experienced conversational Spanish teacher.

Educational background in Biological Engineering and Statistics.

Executives and professionals trust me to immerse them into the Spanish language.

What is immersion learning?

Immersion learning works in the same way a child learns a new language without formal training. You work with a native speaker and get accustomed to hearing them in real world scenarios.

From having a coffee to presenting in a business meeting, you will quickly learn to recognize key words and phrases. With practice, you will be able to respond in real time without disrupting the flow of the conversation.

Learning is not just a task; it's an experience that requires a dedicated and welcoming teacher.

Make a real difference in each student's experience is my top priority.

From a New Yorker to you.

From the heart of Manhattan, whether you prefer the Financial District, the Upper West Side or the Upper East Side, a strong sense of community is what defines us.

That's the goal: To keep the conversation going.
