I am a native Spanish speaker from Colombia. I am certified in Spanish only. I am passionate about working with students who wish to learn the Spanish language. I have been a Spanish language teacher for over 35 years. I have experience teaching students of all ages and in all situations, including all day immersion for immediate learning, students as young as four, group lessons at all levels, and individual lessons at all skill levels. I use a variety of methods in my teaching tailored to the individual's or group's skill level. Both of my children are bilingual and speak, read, and write Spanish.

Martha is a wonderful and patient tutor that helped my daughter get an A in her high school Spanish classes.
My daughter liked Martha and they seem to have had a productive session. They are meeting again in the next few days to further these studies.
After a frustrating year in Spanish, we asked Martha to work with my 9th grade son to help him finish out the year on a high note. Martha was very patient and enthusiastic. Though we have not yet received the test scores, my son is feeling much more confident. Thank you!!
When my daughter started tutoring she had no confidence in her ability to conquer the challenges of the Spanish language and was failing in school. In three months she is now better equipped to keep up in class and now has a passing grade.
Martha is very calm and really engaging. She got me going right from the start of the lesson. I am looking forward to continuing my work with her.
Calm, gentle, very thorough, paying attention to personality, able to adjust her style of teaching, and of course, very proficient in Spanish which is her mother tongue. It is also easy to see that she taught Spanish all her life. We, as a family, highly recommend Martha to anyone interested in the Spanish language.
I have met with Martha several times. She is punctual, pleasant, and helpful. She is always responsive to my request to cover (or not cover) specific material. She is always prepared and ready with information or exercises that focus on the day's pre-determined agenda. And she is always cheerful, making the work fun.
I have used Marths's services twice. She is wonderful. She's prompt, professional, and I have learned so much in just two sessions. I would recommend her services.
Martha has done a nice job with us, laying a foundation, and taking us through appropriate areas at a sensible pace. Very nice lady; comes prepared; and is always on time.
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.
