Carlos Cornejo, founder, started his career in Arequipa, Perú, where he taught at several international language schools while studying second language acquisition at the university level. In order to finance and focus on international travel, he began to give additional private lessons outside of his formal teaching work. During his 10 years of teaching, he has trained students from all over the world.

Carlos Cornejo.

Acting Managing Director of IST (Instant Spanish Tutoring).

 I am a Professional Advanced Certified Spanish Teacher (A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2) with over 10 years of experience. Domino el español e inglés y alemán. I studied linguistics and have always been interested in language. In addition, I am also interested in a wide variety of other topics such as travel travel, outdoor sports, science and wildlife. Language probably excites me more than excites my students. I hope is for this excitement to rub off on them. Let's get started!

We design my lessons according to my students’ needs, with an emphasis on confidence-boosting activities.
