Introduction: Hola! I am a professional native speaking Spanish tutor with a bachelor’s degree in psychology, which I apply to my teaching methods. I use zoom to teach you Spanish in a group or in a private setting. What is your teaching method? First, I give my students the basic tools of sentence formation (I.e. teaching grammar, vocabulary, giving practice exercises). I provide lots of visual and dynamic material online. Secondly, I build my students’ confidence by using real conversations. I believe in order to be fluent my students need plenty of real practice so I include new information and then have my students use it in real conversations to solidify it. My classes are greatly organized with lesson plans, fun activities, and I prepare customized classes to each of my students depending on their learning skills. I like to assign homework, and encourage my students to feel comfortable speaking Spanish. *I also focus on teaching medical terms. I love to travel, cook and read interesting articles so we can talk about traveling, current news and we can share recipes as well. My pleasure in life is to see my students understanding and speaking my language so I work really hard to make this happen!

I’ve been working with Natalia for several months now and she’s been a stellar instructor thus far. She came up with specific lessons for me that fit where I was at with my Spanish (i.e. I wasn’t quite a beginner but was very rusty). The best part of her lessons is that she (gently) pushes you to start being more conversational with what you’ve learned when she thinks you’re ready. I think this is the big hurdle a lot of people who are learning a second language go through but she makes sure that you feel comfortable doing it and is excellent in explaining any mistakes you might make. It feels like you’re learning more with a friend than anything else. Like any good instructor, she does give you homework that you need to do in order to succeed during her lessons. The usual routine is she gives the lesson she goes over ahead of time for me to review, and then we try to cement it in class by practicing it verbally. It can be a little scary at first but it seems to be working well with me. I’ve started practicing with my boyfriend and his best friend who are fluent Spanish speakers from South America and they’ve been impressed with how far I’ve gone with just a few months of lessons. TLDR; definitely hire Natalia!

Natalia has been great .. She takes the time to think what will work with different personalities and then tweaks her teaching style accordingly.. Currently me and my daughter we both are taking lessons from her and I am amazed to see that we are able to make full sentences in such a short time period.. all thanks to Natalia
