Spanish Lessons

I greatly enjoyed my experience learning Spanish with Doctor Maria. She tailored each lesson to my specific needs and went above and beyond to find additional resources relevant to me to really bring the content to life. Her commitment to her students is exemplary and her approach to learning both educational and fun making the process very enjoyable . I felt that her investment in really taking the time to understand what I wanted to gain from the experience made the process more productive and she was able to adapt the workplan as my skills progressed to really make me feel like I was building the knowledge I needed. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to learn or improve their language skills.

Dear Teresa, Thank you very much for your comments. It is a pleasure to do what I love and know that I have helped you on your learning process to understand and communicate in Spanish. I am sure you will use it here, in the US and when you travel to Latin America and Spain!!!

Doctor Maria is an amazing professor and has so much knowledge and experience to draw from. In the past, I have tried to learn Spanish on my own or through generic programs and have not stayed interested. Doctor Maria does an excellent job individualizing lessons to how you want to use it in your life! Invest in lessons with Doctor Maria and you won't regret it!
Spanish with Doctor Maria. Native speaker's reply
Dear Laura. Thank you for your comments. I am very proud you have achieved the first goal you had with Spanish using it at work and serving your clients better with your Spanish. It is always a pleasure to continue seeing your progress and confidence to communicate.

Maria is an amazing professional. She spent time determining both what I needed and how to most effectively work with me. She knows that I am planning several trips to Spanish speaking countries and she developed customized materials, including audio and video lessons, to help me reach my goals. She also determined that I wanted to learn conversational Spanish, so she developed materials that will enable me to quickly have basic conversations about food, local sites ad the things that I can really use when I meet people. She has a caring demeaner and is very easy to work with. I am sure I will have a much better understanding of Spanish since I started these classes with Maria. Thanks Professora, eres asombrosa!

Spanish Lessons

I've been extremely pleased with the learning experience offered by "Doctora Maria". She has vast knowledge of Hispanic culture and the many Spanish dialects. Engaging, upbeat, and supportive, I've learned much working with her and am planning to continue my lessons for the foreseeable future. As a native English speaker who learned French while living in Paris, I am studying my third language with this teacher. Try her! You can't go wrong.

Hola JP, estoy muy contenta con tu alegría y deseo de aprender español. I love your attitude toward learning about the Hispanic culture and language.

Spanish Lessons

I really enjoyed my lessons with Maria. She tailored her curriculum to fit my abilities and personalized the learning experience. She took the time to get to know me and we talked, in Spanish, about specific things unique to me that I would likely encounter on my Spanish speaking journey. She challenged me and we worked hard but we also laughed a lot. It was fun, challenging and rewarding.

Hola Mike, I also enjoy having the Intensive Special with you. I am very proud of your progress and how motivated you are to continue learning Spanish and enjoying the Hispanic culture. I am very happy for you and the enjoyable time we spent learning!!

FAQs

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

    I’ve been teaching Spanish to professionals for over 20 years and for that reason, my students find me trustworthy. If pricing is your only factor, my team or I may not be your Spanish coach, but if quality and proven results are your key component, then I am your best choice. I put my heart and soul into every hour of teaching and all the preparation behind. I listen to you and what you need in every course, and work with you to find the best and most efficient way of learning. I offer 10, 20 and 40 lesson packages. My lessons start at $45 (the most popular package of lessons) compared to a regular lesson that is $65. The INTENSIVE SPECIAL IS A 40 lesson package that runs for 10 weeks and with the SPECIAL fee goes down from $65 to $45 (per 45-minute lesson). The intensive is intensive. It is intended to boost your Spanish and sessions are twice a week in double sessions. Each single session is 45 minutes long and double sessions are 1 hour and 30 minutes long. In the double sessions we have time to practice all language skills: talking, listening and understanding, reading and also writing! The INTENSIVE SPECIAL is an intensive 10-week package organized in sessions of 1 hour and 30 minutes meeting twice a week. Take advantage of this special for a very reduced fee!! SAVE 25% on each lesson!! I also offer other less intensive options. For instance, if you can only meet once a week, we can have double sessions with a lot of practice once a week, and extra homework with 100% hands on approach so that you are ready to rock in the next session! I work with a team of teachers, college professors and highly qualified tutors who are passionate about teaching Spanish. We are all Spanish native speakers, and most of us hold a Master Degree in Spanish. Additionally, some of us have also earned a Doctoral Degree in Teaching Spanish. We also offer 1 on 1 lessons for children starting at 4 years old, starting at $40. Enjoy learning from one of our best qualified teachers for children: Beatriz, Ana, Eugenia, Mercedes, María, etc.

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

    My team and I normally conduct a free demo lesson via Zoom for 20-30 minutes. Then, we let the student know what we think we should be working on to improve his/her Spanish skills. We always have an honest conversation with the student to see his/her views on the target. When you decide what type of lessons you want, depending on your availability and goals we schedule a FREE DEMO LESSON with the professional that would best suit your needs. We are a team, but lessons are 1 on 1, always with the same teacher/tutor/professor with you throughout the whole course. The FREE DEMO LESSON is totally free and there is no commitment, so what are you waiting for?

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

    I have a Doctoral Degree in Spanish and a Master's in Teaching Spanish. I have been teaching at the university level for over 15 years and teaching professionals for more than 20 years. My team is also highly trained, and all of us are Spanish native speakers. We all also hold a Master Degree in Spanish and some of us a Doctoral Degree as well.
