Era Rodolfo un reno

que tenía la nariz

roja como la grana

y de un brillo singular

Todos sus compañeros

se reian sin parar

y nuestro buen amigo

solo y triste se quedó

Pero Navidad llegó

Santa Claus bajo

y a Rodolfo lo eligió

por su singular nariz

Tirando del trineo

fue Rodolfo sensación

y desde aquel momento

toda burla se acabó


Pero Navidad llegó

Katina Glancy  Art Teacher


“I can not begin to tell you how pleased I have been with her teaching… Spanish ability was quite limited, having only taken 2 years at the high school level, Ms. Miranda helped me to catch up to the Spanish 4 level….. In an hour lesson with Ms. Miranda I have learned and stored into permanent memory what would have take me a week to learn in my UCLA Spanish class”

John Siegel – University Student

She is a very positive and encouraging teacher with clear and consistent expectations. In addition, she was extremely reliable, honest and easy to deal with from a parent’s perspective.”

Carrie Anders  Parent


“I met Dalila through Craig’s list in March of this year.  Dalila contacted me promptly and offered her Spanish language expertise to help me as I was struggling with my classes at Berlitz….,,I felt that my Spanish skills improved dramatically and it was due to her thorough commitment to help me with a personalized program to ensure that the areas and topics that were of most interest to me were covered.  Dalila has been consistent and reliable in her communications and appointments with me, and has also been very accommodating to my schedule.

“………..As a therapist in a county mental health clinic, I need to be able to communicate with monolingual Spanish-speaking clients in order to provide services.  Ms. Miranda helped me become more fluent in the Spanish language so that I am able to communicate with my clients without problems”

Stacy Atkins MSW- Health Care


“…I was tired of learning Spanish just for travelers  … Dalila really knows what she is doing and has a great ability to set up the curriculum that I need for my business. She is just amazing….I can’t believe I found her on Craigslist!”

Tara Clark,  Business


“Dalila Miranda proved to be an excellent investment for my husband and I. We had a series of lessons with her to prepare for a trip to Argentina….Dalila tailored her lessons to fit our individual needs. The purpose of our trip was to look at real estate in Buenos Aires. Not only did she verse us in technical terms we would find useful,…..Another aspect of Dalila’s instruction we found helpful is her vast knowledge of Central and South American culture. There were a number of times during our trip that we would have been lost were it not for information given to us by Ms. Miranda. This, combined with her hands-on approach to learning, made our time with Dalila invaluable”

Desiree  Adams – Business

“Dalila was my Spanish language instructor for a Spanish immersion course I took a little while ago. I really enjoyed her teaching style and it really blew me away how much I learned just within these few days of class. She was focused on conversation and had a technique of teaching that was simple enough for me to understand and also easy for me to retain and use what I learned. It is incredible and I did not expect that I would learn as much as I did in just a few days of immersion, and I think that is a great way to learn the language. I am grateful for that class and for her patience, passion, and dedication too :)” Posted on my LinkedIn:
