About Us

Jim Fricker II

Jim Fricker II is a self-proclaimed gringo from Minnesota. In 2010 he decided he was no longer content with only being able to speak one language, so he set out to learn Spanish. As a result, he met his wife, May. As an added bonus, he never had to endure another Minnesota winter again.

Over the years Jim has been a musician, recording studio owner, music producer, teacher, and technology enthusiast. He has produced dozens of albums for various unsigned artists, been commissioned to compose music for national organizations, and always tries to make sure he has his green smoothie in the morning.

May Larios García

May Larios García is a Mexican English and Spanish teacher who grew up in a small town in the state of Colima, Mexico. She has been teaching English and Spanish as a Foreign and Second Language since the age of 18. She graduated from the School of Foreign Languages in Colima in 2010. She has worked with students of all ages and hopes to be able to keep helping others learn around the world.

May enjoys visiting new places, meeting new people, and she can’t wait to show you all the awesome places where Spanish is spoken. When she is not working, you can find her in the kitchen creating vegan recipes, sharing laughs with her friends, or at the closest tiangüis or mercado looking for the freshest produce.
