Mill Valley location

Brent Wexler’s love for foreign language acquisition has given him the opportunity to connect with wonderful people from all over the world.  He began learning Spanish as a teenager while communicating with immigrant staff at restaurants where he worked in Southern California. He then gave full throttle to his passion by pursuing a BA in Language Studies, including a year at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid, soon thereafter completing an MA in Translation at the Monterey Institute of International Studies. Brent’s hunger for cross-cultural experience magnified over the years as he traveled and lived in countries such as Spain, France, Indonesia, Guatemala, Brazil, Peru, Vietnam and others.  One of life’s greatest highlights for Brent came while teaching Spanish at his Alma Mater--UCSC--where he earned an Excellence in Teaching Award for his dynamic approach to empowering language learners on their journey to new heights.
