Spanish Lessons

Doctor Maria is an extremely professional, empathetic and dedicated teacher. She is passionate about her craft and dedicated to YOUR success as a student. I'd had one year of Spanish in high school (and remembered close to nothing) when I reached out to her. My goal is to learn the language to be able to communicate with the many Spanish speaking people I encounter daily in Miami - for me, a new life skill. My lessons have allowed me to understand not just words but the structure of the language so that when I encounter something new, I have tools to help me. She never makes you feel inadequate or slow or embarrassed; she is your coach and partner. Finally, she brings her high energy enthusiasm to each lesson. I still have so much more to learn but am thankful to have found Doctor Maria. She's truly unique and a gift.

Spanish Lessons

I am very happy with the company and how they handled my tutoring. I met Maria virtually and we had a free lesson. I learned about their teaching method. I was impressed to learn that unlike most tutors, they only work with highly trained native speakers with at least a Master Degree in Spanish. Maria has a Doctoral Degree in Spanish and that was very interesting to me. I wanted to have lessons with her and I saw how dedicated, passionate and committed to my learning she is. She prepared materials and video activities so that I could speak Spanish and order at a restaurant, and many other situations I have every week. I hired her company to teach my niece and gave her present at Christmas. It is great to know Mercedes, another tutor with Master Degree is helping my niece. We are both having a very enjoyable experience. Thank you.

Hi Lori, I am very impressed with your progress and how well you had handled the real situations we prepared you for in Spanish. Besides, you got to enjoy eating out in restaurants, trying the Spanish food and traveling locally and to other states and communicated with Spanish speakers. Next it will be travelling with your niece, who learning with one of our star teachers!! See you on our next lesson on Friday!

Taking lessons with Maria is a fantastic experience. Her ability to understand how I learn and react by making the lessons appropriate to me is amazing. She has a deep love of the Spanish language and culture and this is made very clear in her attention to the details of her lessons and on how she works with me as a student. I am learning very quickly, but I understand that I have a long way to go. I look forward to taking many lessons with Maria and learning about both the Spanish language and the many interesting Spanish cultures. Thanks for a great experience.

Spanish Lessons

I have just finished a bi-weekly intensive Spanish course with Dr. Maria Aparicio for 10 weeks and my Spanish is notably better and I feel more confident in conversing. Maria is always prepared with lesson plans tailored to every student and pays attention to minute details that improves you as a student. I couldn't be happier with Maria as my Spanish teacher and plan to continue with her for additional lessons!
Language Master Group's reply

Spanish Lessons

WOW!!!! Maria has been nothing short of amazing. She is patient and literally custom builds lessons so that you get everything you need all while learning the rules that are important to properly communicate in Spanish. She has me understanding Spanish grammar, communicating basic ideas and helping me understand what the people around me are saying. You have to do the homework and be diligent about studying, but that is a small price to pay for the real, measurable progress she has me making. I am going to keep at this until I speak fluently. Thanks Dr. Maria
Language Master Group's reply

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    We always carry out an initial interview via Zoom to find out what the student specific needs are. We ask very precise questions so that we can work together to achieve your goals. Our instructors are all Spanish native speakers and highly trained in teaching Spanish. They are also passionate about what they do and get professional training constantly. Most of our instructors hold a Master Degree and extensive experience teaching Spanish. Others hold a Doctoral Degree in Teaching Spanish. Those are the key differences when taking lessons with Language Master Group. We work with the best instructors and provide them with professional training to make their students achieve their goals. We offer customized 1 on 1 sessions starting at low as $35/lesson for children 6 to 13 years old and 1 on 1 lessons for 14 year old and over starting at $45/lesson. Those fees apply to the Intensive Special. If you are interested in less intensive options, please, send us an email to langugematergroup and we will send you all the 4 OPTIONS. You can see the email in our Thumbtack profile. Materials are included: files, audio activities and video activities. Right now we are also running a special only for Thumbtack students in which they get a FREE demo lesson (totally free of charge), without any commitment. Send us an email to languagemastergroup if you want to learn more about the specials and package options. If you check our web your will see the most popular packages range between 10 and 40 lessons via Zoom. Lessons are 30 minutes long for children and teenagers up to 13 years old and 45 minutes long for 14 years old and over. If you’re an adult and you'd rather meet once a week, double sessions of 1 hour and 30 minutes is the best option, and we accommodate to your availability. We also offer a Special Intensive option for students who want to boost their Spanish in 10 weeks. This Intensive course meets twice a week in double sessions of 90 minutes each. Every package is totally personalized, and the regular price for adults is $65/lesson, but you can get the price down to $35/lesson with the Intensive Special for up to 13 year old or $45 for 14 y.o. and adults. Please, send us an email and we will send you the information for the INTENSIVE SPECIAL. You can check the different pricing of our courses in our web page languagemastergroup but if you want to see all the 4 options you have depending on your age group, send us an email.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    We always carry out an initial interview to find out what the student specific needs are. We offer a demonstrative FREE 20-30 minute FREE demo lesson/consultation. The lesson is made via Zoom, the same way as our regular lessons. The new student simply has to contact us via email or phone and we will arrange the day/s and time that works best. Before starting our lessons, we also like sending the student a placement test to verify the real level and a form to fill out about the student's background and specific interest so that I can customize every session. It does not matter what time Zone you live in. We work with students in the East Coast, West Coast and evening in Europe and Latin America. We accommodate to your time Zone and availability.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I am María, the founder of Language Master Group. I hold a Doctorate in Spanish Language and Literature and have a Masters Degree in Teaching Foreign Languages. In addition, I earned my Bachelor Degree in Foreign Languages and my Business degree, which enable me to teach English and Spanish to professionals in a variety of sectors. All my team members have similar credentials. We are all Spanish native speakers and most of the members in my team hold a Master Degree in Spanish. Some also a Doctoral Degree. We all have been teaching for many years and we are specialized on a particular age group: children, teenagers or adults/professionals. “I founded Language Master Group so that students could learn language, be exposed to culture and benefit from the combination of knowledge and expertise that my team has developed over many years. I have extensive experience in teaching adults who have personal and professional goals to acquire or improve their language skills." Our work has been recognized by our students and fellow teaching professionals. The best reward is to see how a student improves drastically after 4 lessons!! Allow us to offer you our professional, high quality language services. The satisfaction and loyalty of our students is our best reference. My team is highly trained, and we are proud to offer professional native speakers with undergraduate, and graduate degrees to teach foreign languages. But most importantly, my team has many years of teaching experience.
