About Maria

Hola.

I am Isabel and have around 5 years of teaching Spanish experience. Likewise, I am a native Spanish speaker with neutral accent. I also have had some experience as translator and interpreter and that makes my awareness of Spanish very important when teaching my native language to learners of other languages, regarding the use of written and spoken language.

Regarding my teaching experience and theory, I consider the following aspects vital for my teaching: First, I agree with authors that have stated that teachers’ role is to guide students through their learning process but he/she is not the owner of the knowledge that will be passed into them. Likewise, students’ role must be active and they have to be empowered of their learning process; in a sense that they take responsibility and are aware of their strengths as well as their weaknesses and learn from the last ones.

I am working on my Master’s degree right now and love sharing my language and culture. I always put my students’ needs first and plan my lessons based on those. Learning a language includes not only grammar but a cultural element, better if you learn this beautiful language by having a native speaker helping you in the process. Right? Also, are you ready for the exciting opportunity to get to know a new world through Spanish?

Looking forward meeting you!

I have had two other tutors for Spanish and Maria is the best by far. First she is very positive, laughs easily and makes the whole experience enjoyable. She is a native speaker so her pronunciation is genuine and she has a easy and gentle way of correcting my errors. Besides all of that she is a natural teacher with a gift of presenting the subject matter in many different ways to keep it intere
