I am a Spanish native speaker teacher. I hold a degree in the field of Early Childhood Education issued in my country Lima-Peru. After my graduation from The Instituto Pedagogico Nacional Monterrico, I decided to traveled to the United States and stayed since then. I worked as a pre-school and first grade teacher in a bilingual private school in Miami. I also worked as a Readiness Specialist and Quality Assurance Specialist at the Early Childhood Education (ECE) Department for a non-profit organization in Miami Lakes and West Palm Beach.

After moving to Atlanta, I started working at Tabula Rasa school as a preschool and after-school teacher at the Spanish Program for 3 years. I worked for this private school with non-Spanish native speakers children of different ages exposed to a full immersion Spanish program. It was a rewarding professional and personal experience to see how my students became fluent in ...

Brilliant instructor, fun and memorable exercises make it a class to look forward to. The improved atmosphere in learning with Mariella has allowed me to attain a more rapid progress that was conversationally and occupationally useful much sooner than I anticipated. Working with an instructor one on one also helps greatly decrease anxiety of learning when you will need to try your new skills on others who may not know you well if at all. The lessons she gives, along with the adjuncts on learning recommended, provide an efficacious and complete Spanish learning system where the goal you personally desire will be obtained, be it for travel, occupational, or cultural purposes. I cannot get over how many years I've studied Spanish using books and computer programs and audio CDs in the car, but then to make more progress in a short time than I had over years locks in that speaking high quality Spanish will be in your future if you continue with this instructor and follow her careful guidance.

I am a mother of two awesome boys. I am married, my first language is Spanish and my kids speak, read and write Spanish. Their ages are 11 and 8. I love to teach specially this great language. Learning Spanish is going to give you confidence and great opportunities to get a job. Spanish is 100% phonetic. Words are pronounced exactly as they are written. It is fun and it's not difficult to learn.

If you are not satisfied with the class, I will offer you a makeup class, because it is very important for me that you feel happy.
I am able to go to your convenience place for you to receive the class.

Thank you for reading my profile. It would be a pleasure to help you learn Spanish. I look forward from you.

Claudia is a native Spanish speaker and a great tutor. She is patient, has solid lesson plans, always on time, good assignments and she adjusts really well to my gaps in knowledge. She works very hard to help me in the areas I need help. We do a good blend of learning grammar and structure with practical application.

Great teacher! I think the most important teacher's feature is to be able to motivate a student, to keep him or her interested in the subject. Soledad is great at that. I enjoy my lessons a lot! Thank you!

All levels!
Learn Spanish as easily as you learned English!
You are going to start speaking and even thinking in Spanish from the very beginning.
The primary goal is to develop speaking and comprehension skills.
By the end of the course, you'll be able to have a social, or even business conversation with Spanish speakers.
I am native speaker. I will teach you universal Spanish, as it is spoken in Latin America and Spain. No localisms!

After only one lesson with Pablo I am very pleased with my experience with him. As I am a beginner, he started me on the basics and was very patient and encouraging. I found his material level appropriate and he is willing to move at whatever pace is comfortable for me. The homework he assigned and the additional resources he shared are proving to be very beneficial as well. I thoroughly enjoyed my first lesson and with Pablo's pleasant and relaxed personality, I look forward to my future lessons.

My Spanish lessons are fun and dynamic. The student will learn at their own pace, being always encouraged to improve and perfect pronunciation and structure. My classes include cultural aspects of the language, such as music, cooking, dancing and expressions in order to have a more rounded understanding of the language.
