Helpful, Caring, and Amazing Tutor

Ms. Maria is a marvelous tutor! She is extremely helpful and is dedicated to helping you understand Spanish concepts and terms. She has many engaging methods of learning such as matching worksheets and stories, fun videos, and practices with conjugations and verbs. She also provides you with plenty of resources for help outside of the tutoring sessions, and always responds to emails and messages requesting help. She is extremely accomodating and always centers the lessons around your interests and what YOU want to focus on for the day, not a rigid curriculum. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed my sessions with her and I am planning to continue them throughout the rest of high school, and I reccomend that you sign up for one of her sessions and see how incredible they are!

Patient and committed to my progress!

I've worked with many language tutors, and none have been as committed to my progress as Maria. I can be quite impatient in the language learning process. Nevertheless, Maria is patient, encouraging, and resourceful (sharing helpful online materials for me to review in-between lessons). We discuss my goals often, which I greatly appreciate. She's very flexible in terms of her approach in how we meet those goals together (ex. more time casually conversing, reviewing lessons/prepared material, reading articles in our session). In moments when I get frustrated, she reminds me that this is to be a fun process (always a reminder that's right on time!). All in all, I'm glad to work with Maria and am excited to continue to progress towards my language learning goals with her! :)

Knowledgable and Patient

Maria is great! My daughter-8th grader enjoys the tutor session with her very much and likes Spanish even more now. We are going to schedule more sessions with her. Thank you Maria !!

Knowledgeable, Patient and FUN!

Maria is fantastic! She tutors both my girls ages 5 and 6. Maria creates worksheets for the girls to practice during and after the lesson. Maria engages and encourages my daughters throughout the entire session. She knows that they love animals so she always has a puppet or some stuffed animal during the lesson to keep their attention. My girls are truly more comfortable and confident with Spanish. We are so happy to have found Maria!

Caring

I am not a person that is easy to teach a language to. That being said. My first lesson with Maria left me feeling that I can do this. I left feeling very hopeful. Looking forward to my next lesson and taking this beautiful journey into another world with Maria by my side. Thank you Maria.

Maria helped set long term goals, identified my strengths and weaknesses and provided helpful resources to study and also provided books from which to study. Maria was eager to help me along my journey to improve my speaking skills.
