I've been intimated to do Spanish classes but with Maria she is so understanding! The way she breaks down and explains is very helpful and her availability is outstanding. She is quick to reply with any concerns you may have and that means a lot considering how busy life gets. She is passionate to teach and I'm so excited to move forward with her lessons! Cinco estrellas!

I am a intermediate Spanish Learner and had studied by myself and had passed Dele A2. Thereafter I wasn’t advancing the way I wanted too. My wife on the other hand is an absolute beginner. We started looking for tutors and were skeptical about on line classes but nevertheless wanted to give “Straight from Spain” a chance. Oooh, my God, Maria is the BEST ever tutor. I had given German lessons myself, but being a native speaker and being a highly efficient teacher of a language are completely different things! Maria has a Spanish Linguistic degree and is able to make you understand everything without saying “it is just that way”. What you will get: a) A highly professional, punctual, organized tutor whereever in the would you live! We live şn different time zones. b) During classes Maria takes notes and sends them to you after the class, allowing you to concentrate totally on what you are learning. c) She has endless resources for learning/studying d) A highly positive demenour, outlook that will motivate you to learn. e) FUN, FUN, FUN! Both, I and my wife are looking forward to each of our classes and have advanced tremendously during the last 3 months and hope to be students of “Straight from Spain” for a long time to come. Look no further, you have found the absolute best teacher of Spanish!

Maria is fantastic and I couldn’t be happier with her teaching methods, patience and structure of our lessons. I’ve taken Spanish throughout the years but I’ve never actually get like something clicked until my first lesson with Maria. She’s very personable and our hour lessons go by so fast because they’re so enjoyable!

I just absolutely loved my first lesson! I was so nervous, but soon discovered that Maria was just the perfect teacher for me! She is funny and teaches you easy quick ways to remember what you learn! I just signed up for 23 more sessions and I’m soooo pumped !! If you are like me, and are super nervous to learn Spanish because you think you are terrible at it- just do it! Maria makes it fun and easy!
