Professional Experience

At the same time, I have been tutoring individual students and teaching different levels of Spanish and Portuguese to groups at International House and the Mount Pleasant Community Centre.

I usually approach language teaching through movement, images, metaphors, communicative strategies, always enhancing target language exposure as much as possible and relying heavily on student's participation. I can help you achieve your goals and turn Spanish or Portuguese into a great learning experience!

Perfect for Advanced Spanish lessons
4 months ago

Fabricio has taught Spanish to my daughter for a year. She's quite advanced, reading Spanish literature in High School. Fabricio worked with her on grammar and vocabulary to get her as close to fluent as possible but he also has the knowledge and sophistication of a professor in his literature discussions. He worked with her to understand complex writers e.g. Federico Garcia Lorca or Gabriel G. Marquez and texts with older-style language, and writing essays and long form reports. Highly Recommended

Fabricio is both an excellent teacher and pleasant to work with. My wife and I worked with him to get some basic Spanish before a trip, as well as conversational Portuguese. Fabricio is very organized, and will provide as much teaching material as you need, either printed or online. He came to our house, which made everything easy.

Great Instructional Approach

Fabrico provided an excellent approach to learning Spanish. By talking about daily activities and choosing A-Z topics, I was able to really progress my conversational spanish for the types of real-world conversations I have in my daily life. Very easy to talk to and learn from. Highly recommend him for your spanish learning.

El mejorísimo

Fab tutored me throughout my second year of Spanish-language instruction at UBC. He was fantastic! Not that he’d tell you, but that’s probably because he speaks, I want to say, five languages, one of which is Russian. The guy’s a consummate polymath—and a wonderful teacher. I’d highly recommend his services to anyone wanting to master Spanish (and Catalan), Portuguese, French—even English.

I had the pleasure of being tutored for Spanish by Fabricio for several months. I previously had spent ~2 years attempting to learn Spanish by myself — to little success. The classes with Fabri, focusing on conversational ability, greatly improved the trajectory of my Spanish learning. Best of all, the classes provided me with the confidence to use Spanish as much as possible without apprehension.

I have really appreciated and benefited from my lessons with Fabricio. He makes our time together interesting and instructive. He has a solid lesson plan for our time together and encourages conversation on a wide range of topics. I would recommend without reservation.
