Hi everyone, I'm Guillermo, a native Spanish speaker from Mexico : ) I'm a certified duolingo educator, an app with game-like exercises that you can use to practice the days we don't meet. NB: I don't just speak Spanish as a first language, I also have good knowledge of the grammar and spelling rules of it in case you are interested in academic tutoring. *UPDATE: Due to the current isolation situation, we can also meet online through a video chat platform if you prefer.
Not at all, Spanish has a few similarities with English and I'll give you some tips and online resources so you can practice everyday.
In average in 6 months you can understand and speak at an intermediate level but there are many factors... your commitment to practice is key.
