Do you want to learn or improve your Spanish? Do you want to SPEAK?
Are you interested in improving your English as your Second Language?

I teach via Skype or Wyzant platform at the comfort of your home, office or favourite place. You do not have to waste time travelling or deal with traffic or transportation.

I focus on communication so that you start speaking since day 1. I also customize all lessons to your learning style: hands on, speaking, understanding, writing, preparing exams or whatever need you have. I also specialize in Business English and Business Spanish. My degree in Business and my Doctoral Degree in Teaching Languages allows me to prepare you in Business in both languages.

I have helped my students make their dreams come true: communicate at work and with their friends & relatives in Spanish, be admitted to a university, improve their performance at school or college, GPA, get a promotion at work, do business, find a better job, travel, etc.

I am passionate about teaching and learning. I hold several degrees: Bachelor in Teaching Spanish and English, Bachelor in Business Administration, Master and Doctorate in teaching Spanish and English languages and cultures.

As a native Spanish speaker and a professor with a Doctorate in Spanish I have a real world and the academic perspective when teaching the Spanish language and culture. I have been teaching for more than 15 years. I have taught students from very different levels, from beginner to advanced level, different ages and diverse personal and professional backgrounds (managers, secretaries, doctors, nurses, accountants, travel agents, servers, hostess, servers, flight attendants, etc).

I have extensive experience teaching Spanish just for casual communication with family and friends to Spanish for specific purposes (Spanish for business, healthcare, finance, tourism, etc.). Not only I want the student to learn to speak, but also to be familiar with the diversity of cultures we have in the Hispanic world.

According to my students, I am an excellent tutor because I combine my years of experience teaching students from different backgrounds with my credentials (Doctoral degree in Spanish and Master degree in English and Spanish).

Why don't you have a look at what my students say or try it or yourself?

Skype or Wyzant classes are $60/hr. In Person classes in Miami Gardens Dr. are $70/hr.

Very effective in an online medium.

I have used Maria to teach me online through the Wyzant platform and it was a very smooth process. I learn best in person; however, her ability to teach online was just as effective for me and is a method I would like to continue to do because it is incredibly convenient. She has all of the right credentials and people skills to teach you at your pace. I fully recommend Maria.

Great Experience

I contacted Maria and she responded quickly. She is knowledgeable, patient and an excellent teacher. I learned a great deal in the very first lesson. She made it fun and easy for me to quickly learn some grammar and vocabulary and was able to carry on basic conversation. I cannot wait to continue to work with her.
