Hola! My name is María and I'm from Mexico.
I have 3 years of teaching experience. I majored in Languages from Universidad de las Américas Puebla and I obtained a certification to teach Spanish as a foreign language. My classes use a communicative approach that incorporates grammar in a laid-back and dynamic way. I hand pick all the materials according to the needs of my students and I often use resources like music, videos and social media to make the lesson more interactive. My main goal is to help my students feel confortable expressing themselves and learn at their own pace.
I have studied several languages including French, German, English and Italian. My favorite part of language teaching is getting to know the cultures and interests of my students. I'd be happy to work on a plan that fits your needs. You don't need any previous experience learning Spanish or a foreign language. If you're ready to start learning book a trial class with me or message me with any questions.
Hope to see you soon!

Maria is a great Spanish teacher:) I have been enjoying the lessons a lot, and they are helping me keep my Spanish active and improving. I really like the variety of Maria's exercises; discussing different topics, reading all kinds of texts and doing grammar exercises. It is very helpful that Maria encourages me to use the learned grammar structures in my speech - I improve a lot faster than I used to. I would definitely recommend her as a teacher:)

I am very happy with how Maria is helping me to speak Spanish. I know a lot of words but I am very clumsy at speaking. She is patient with me and speaks to me slowly in Spanish so that I can learn to hear and respond. She also writes down new words for me so I can memorize them later which I find very helpful.
