We are a family of 3 adults and we look forward to our lessons with doctor Maria. We had an introductory free lesson and decided to have 2 separate lessons because my husband has basic level and I have intermediate, as well as our daughter. Maria is very knowledgeable and we are avid readers, so with her suggestions to learn more about the language and culture we are very excited to relocate to Spain by the end of the year. Maria is helping us become fluent and my husband is very impressed with his progress in the few lessons he had with her. He is doing a 10 week intensive and he can already communicate here at our local community in Spanish! Maria is the best! Thank you for being so professional and sharing your knowledge with us to speak Spanish.

I wanted a Spanish tutor to help me with my Spanish and doing business with Hispanics in the US. I learned Spanish a while ago but I was not advancing the way I wanted with another tutor I had. I needed somebody very professional and knowledgeable of Spanish and Business, and OMG, Maria is the best tutor I ever had. She has a Linguistics Degree and also a business Degree. This made it perfect for a professional like me. I learned later that she also holds a Doctoral Degree in Spanish and has been teaching at college for over 15 years. I wanted somebody like her who would not simply say after I ask a question, "it is just this way we say it in Spanish". If I have to say why I chose her and I will continue with her for many other courses is because: - She is very professional -She masters and is very knowledgeable about the language, culture, business, music, history, travel... - She takes notes of all our lessons and sends them to me. She has endless resources and she creates presentations, materials, and video activities for me (I know that because I have very particular interests) - She is very motivational and inspires me to get better with the advice she provides - She is fun and her lessons are fun, fun, great sense of humor and very informative - She is the only instructor who made me communicate with confidence with Spanish speakers!! She is the best! In just a few lessons with Doctor Maria Torres I learned more than in a full year of private lessons...I would look no further!!!

Since working with two teachers at Language Mater Group my ability to speak in Spanish has improved dramatically in a very short time. The LMG team is very structured while being flexible enough to adapt to my particular needs. They demand a great deal from you, but what I have accomplished is nothing short of amazing. Thank you Maria and Diana, I have learned a lot and I continue to learn from you with each lesson. You guys are great!

Dr. Maria Aparicio Torres was an incredible teacher. She truly cared about my progression, satisfaction with the teaching, and specific goals for learning Spanish. I always felt challenged and completely supported in my specific goals. I could not reccomend this program more if you are searching for a personalized lesson plan with a passionate professor!

I have had nothing but a great experience with Dr. Torres! As a recent college graduate with a minor in Spanish, I was tutored during my last two semesters by Dr. Torres focusing on three different subjects (Grammar, Linguistics, and Oral Communication). Using the “intensive special” in both semesters, she accommodated my school schedule, syllabus, and personal calendar to make sure we were on schedule. With each course, we curated a lesson plan based on the requirements for the class. Admittedly, I was very nervous about lesson plans since it was virtual, but our meetings were very detailed and she sent additional Spanish information to supplement my schoolwork, which I loved. Additionally, I had plenty of other Spanish assignments (essays and worksheets) throughout the week and I was able to send them to her for review as they came in. Dr. Torres was very friendly and constantly encouraged me to be more confident in my Spanish-speaking skills. This past year of tutoring has been great and I encourage everyone to give Dr. Torres a try!

    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. All our 1 on 1 lessons are 5 weeks or 10 weeks. You have up to 4 different options of personalized course, depending on the weekly frequency you want to meet with your professor or teacher. 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.

  • 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.
