About this pro

How does your business stand out?

¡Hola a todos! Do you want to learn the Spanish language and culture with someone from Spain? I am a journalist and producer with years of experience tutoring language and literature both in Europe and the United States.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

My online classes are focused on conversation, what I consider to be the best way of learning a language. I have a range of materials (books, videos, exercises) available to all my students to practice and learn in a fun way. I will adapt to your needs and we will work together in order to achieve all your goals with Spanish. As a translator, I have worked for several companies and institutions, such as the Spanish Consulate in New York or the Catalan News Agency. Feel free to contact me with any question and we will have a first conversation to discuss your needs and see what's the best way for us to work together. Hoping to hear from you soon. ¡Muchas gracias! Marta

    Marta is one of the best Spanish tutors with whom I've ever worked. She adapted her lessons to my needs and my level, was always prepared, was always on time, and was very interesting to talk with. She was very flexible with her schedule, even providing weekend classes to help me prepare for a test. Easy to talk to and very professional - you won't even feel that you are in a class! Highly recommended.

    She has not been my teacher for very long but from my experience so far I notice that she is responsive, prompt, and knows how to be an effective teacher. She prepares language exercises that suite your level whether it consist of reading materials, writing exercises, videos, etc. She is also accommodative to the needs of her students.

    My experience with Marta has been overwhelmingly positive. Marta is extremely patient, accommodating, and fun to work with. Most importantly, she has the invaluable skill of being able to explain complex subjects in a clear, understandable way. Marta's method of utilizing both conversation and theory helps keep the material interesting, applicable, and fun. I feel that the balance of both speaking and learning simultaneously has increased my general capacity for Spanish conversation, as well as improved my understanding of grammar and vocabulary. Marta has helped me immensely in my Spanish-speaking goals, and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great teacher.

    Marta has been my Spanish tutor for about a year now, and she is absolutely phenomenal. Not only is she sweet and easy to work with, but she explains grammatical concepts and other themes in Spanish well. She has helped me on numerous occasions regarding projects, papers, and even studying. Marta helped me study for the National Spanish Exam which I ended up receiving a gold medal in. Her knowledge level is equivalent to that of a professor. She is an outstanding tutor!

    Marta did a great job for us. We have a film&TV production company, and we needed to translate a couple of interviews and press notes, and had to be ASAP...she did it fast and perfect. The press note and the interview were released and published in several newspapers, and we could check that nobody changed a single letter. So the documents translated by Marta were perfect to publish in media.
