About Maria

I am a native Spanish speaker from Madrid, Spain. I have a passion for teaching my native tongue in all its intricacies and cultural varieties. My experience includes tutoring classes and individuals in corporate, school, community, and group settings.

I have taught classes of middle school and high school students, and younger children. Therefore, I am ready to discuss teaching larger groups of students if desired.

I teach students of all fluency levels. Many of my students prefer learning through conversational Spanish, but I also teach by using a more structured format depending on the needs and preferences of my students. In all cases, I strive to make my classes interactive and fun. Please contact me if you have an interest in learning Spanish or in improving on your current Spanish knowledge.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
