Do you or your children wish to learn English or Spanish in a pleasant, engaging and supportive environment? I am here to help you! My name is Maria and I am from Maracaibo, Venezuela. As a certified K-12 Spanish teacher and experienced English language instructor at the college level, I have 14 years of experience as an educator. I truly enjoy helping others discover and learn new languages. I also understand the process of learning a new language as I have been through it more than once (English, Finnish and French).

-The most meaningful and productive lessons are fun, hands-on, engaging and tied to the real world.
-While lessons should be challenging, it is critical that students are not pressured or rushed.

I hold a Florida Certification K-12 in Spanish. I have taught Spanish for 4 years as a formal, classroom teacher.
