About Marilola

My love for teaching Spanish comes from a longstanding fascination with languages and language learning. As a Linguistics PhD candidate at UC Berkeley I've had the opportunity to teach linguistics and Spanish classes to Berkeley undergrads. During this time I also tutored middle school and high school students that had a variety of learning styles. While teaching to a large group taught me how to engage the students with the material, the experience with individual students allowed me to recognize and successfully address the particular needs of each student. I've had the satisfaction of seeing students progress and realize their own potential.

My qualifications include graduate training in linguistics and Spanish linguistics and 5 years of Spanish teaching experience at the Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced levels. I also have experience teaching Spanish for heritage speakers and introductory linguistics courses.
I am an effective language instructor because I truly understand what I teach. In my classes and tutoring sessions I go beyond teaching arbitrary rules of grammar and I am able to explain the function of grammar. In other words, I address the differences between Spanish and English and I am able to explain why Spanish "does" things in a different way. In addition I prepare engaging sessions that motivate the student to use Spanish and develop better speaking skills.

I am available for a free consultation phone call. I try to be flexible with time, though I have a 24-hours cancellation policy. I do offer makeup classes.
I am able to meet at my place in Oakland, or I can also travel to Berkeley and Oakland if that is more convenient for the student.
I look forward to hearing from you and helping you reach success in your Spanish studies!
