A Little Words About me

Luis De La Torre

¡Hola! I am Luis, a native Spanish speaker. I was born in a little town in Jalisco, Mexico. I studied and earned my Degree in Political Sciences. After that, I worked as a teacher in a middle school, teaching history and creative literature. Then, I started my career as a Spanish teacher in a private institute in Denver, CO. I am currently a full-time Spanish teacher and earning a master’s degree in Spanish teaching in multiple contexts.  

I like to ride my bike through the city to explore new locations to eat. I enjoy visiting the museum and overall love for the arts. I also enjoy watching soccer games and walking in the park with my family on weekends.

Elizabeth Machuca

¡Hola!  I’m Elizabeth Machuca, but you can call me Eli. I’m originally from Guadalajara, Mexico. My passion? Making learning Spanish fun, effective, and engaging for children and teens. I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology. I have 2 years of experience teaching Spanish to children and teens. I also have created interactive activities for ESSLINGUA  and other websites. I believe in fostering an interactive learning environment where students can:

  • Develop their communication skills and fluency.
  • Deepen their cultural understanding of the Spanish-speaking world 
  • Ignite a genuine love for the Spanish language 

In my free time, I love getting creative with crafts, getting lost in a good novel, and cruising around on my electric bike when the weather’s good.
