About Mary

As a bilingual educator who learned Spanish later in life, I know just how hard learning a second language can be. My experience learning Spanish allows me to be patient, kind, and understanding with students struggling to grasp a new language. I recently completed a teacher education program in which I became licensed to teach K-12 ESOL and Spanish. I have the most up to date knowledge on second language acquisition and currently teach ESOL in an Elementary school in Northern Virginia. In addition to these qualifications, I spent 10 years working with children and youth in community centers both in the United States and abroad in Latin America where I learned my Spanish. While Spanish is my second language, I'm often asked by native speakers where I'm from because of my near native fluency.

I'm looking to tutor students of any age that are currently taking Spanish classes and already have assignments they need assistance with, or students who are just looking to learn a Spanish on their own. Recent research shows that acquiring a second language happens easiest by receiving the new language in understandable ways. In my tutoring sessions you can expect to participate in listening and speaking tasks each session (even if you bring your own written work from school). I speak slowly and clearly, use repetition and provide visuals in order to help with comprehension.

As a tutor I will always be on time and I do require a 24 hour cancellation. I'll ask for your feedback after each session and take your specific needs and desires for your learning into account. Thanks for reading! Gracias por leer!

Great Spanish tutor

Mary is teaching me Spanish so I can communicate with some of my staff. She is very knowledgeable and helpful. I am confident that with Mary's teaching I will be speaking Spanish fluently very soon.
