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.

Great tutor

I liked individualized attention and her passion to teach. She was patient and helpful. She quickly corrected and explained any words that I did not say properly.

Muchas gracias Junetta. I really enjoy the Spanish class with you. I am sure you will learn how to speak Spanish in a very short term!

Well Organized Tutor

I had my first lesson with Señora Maria A On March 3rd. I am very pleased. She was well organized and had a clear plan for the hour. She was very interested in my goals, what was most important for me to learn (grammar, conversation, etc), how I learned best (total immersion, gradual immersion, etc) etc. It seems that she was developing a student profile. She sent me a beginners quiz well before the lesson which we used during the lesson, I was very impressed with how she was effortlessly guiding me. Her voice projection was clear, the Spanish pronunciations were easy to understand and the chalk board notes were relevant to the learning. I plan on continuing lessons with Señora Maria A.

Muchas gracias Aroon. You are a motivated student, and work hard. I am confident that you will be speaking Spanish very soon. I am looking forward to the Spanish class.

5 stars

The good thing about Maria is that she speaks very clearly and surely over time will help me soften my American accent ..... so that people understand me better! Lo bueno de María es que habla con mucha claridad y seguramente con el tiempo me va a ayudar a suavizar mi acento americano..... para que la gente me entienda mejor!

Matthew, 41 lessons with Maria
Tutor responded:

Gracias Mateo. Tu acento va mejorando, tanto como tu vocabulario. Confío en que sigas mejorando tu español. Nuestras clases son muy amenas. Thank you Mateo. Your accent is improving, as well as your vocabulary. I hope you continue to improve your Spanish. Our classes are very enjoyable.

Highly Recommended!

The reason that I initially selected Maria was based on the fact that she is from Spain and speaks Castilian Spanish. As a child, I used to live in Spain, so I wanted to become reacquainted with Spanish customs and culture. The thing that I like most about Maria is the fact that my lessons are progressive. My current skillset is assessed, then subsequent lessons are structured to accommodate my desired skill level. In addition, she mixes up the material. On any given day, the material could reference Spanish movies, literature, music, or history, so the material isn't rote and repetitive. The other thing that I like about Maria is the fact that she is somewhat flexible when it comes to scheduling class. I work full time, and live about 2 hours from class. She is able to accommodate my work schedule. All in all, I highly recommend Maria as a tutor!

Maria is fun, knowledgeable and helpful. The lessons are enjoyable. I am planning to continue lessons with her for a while!

Excellent Tutor for Advanced Learner

I had my first lesson with Maria and I was very pleased. I am a fairly fluent Spanish speaker with the goal to refresh my skills. Maria quickly adjusted to my level of learning and guided me to undo a few bad habits and learn new vocabulary, I found it very informative and I really enjoyed Maria's energy and enthusiasm.
