About Whitney

welcome!

I'm here to help make Spanish simple - from learning the beautiful language

to discovering its amazing and diverse culture. 

I'm an experienced French and Spanish teacher, with over 15 years of experience.

Whether you’re a student or a teacher, this website is dedicated to helping both

learners and teachers of the Spanish language and culture.

 

As Frank Gehry, the architect of The Guggenheim in Bilbao said, “You’ve got to bumble into the unknown”. 

 

I invite you to bumble into the unknown with me!
