The students I have since tutored in Spanish have also shown tremendous amounts of progress - from improving grades and increasing confidence in class to improving fluency and communication skills in the workplace. I am patient and perceptive to the individual learning style of each student. This ability to personalize lessons is one of the many things that make me an excellent Spanish tutor. I recognize that everyone does not learn the same way, and I have a very individualized approach to teaching. 

When appropriate, depending on a student's skill level, I can tutor entirely in Spanish. But regardless of the level a student is at, I have many creative strategies to use. Whether you're a beginner or in advanced Spanish, I am skilled at adapting my lessons to match your level. I have also developed hundreds of resources over the past few years, which I am happy to share with you. 

I am flexible with scheduling, and have availability during the day, evenings, and on weekends. I am ...

Hola and welcome!
Spanish won’t be any hard for you!
I will give you easy formulas for complex sentences, and if you are a visual learner, you will enjoy the multimedia practices, if learn better from hearing, I created a very fun system that matches words that you know in English with words in Spanish!

I’m a Spanish native speaker with ten years of experience as a teacher for children from four years old and up, and a tutor for adults and young adults.

I review and improve my curriculum once a month, and keep well informed of what the Real Academy for Spanish language accepts and rules.

I’m a price winner writer and poet, as well. If you already know Spanish, let’s bring out that writer living in you!

I look forward to teaming up with you,

Mariana

About Mariana
When I was growing up, we spoke English and Spanish at home.

I moved to Pennsylvania in 2010, and I started to teach Spanish in a close-by library to adults who were so engaged, that I felt motivated to create a more natural plan to help them remember the Spanish words with associations in English. In the same year, I started teaching Spanish at Lango to kids between two and six years old; I consistently used songs and puppets to reinforce my class success. I worked there for one year and two months before the Lango office moved to New York.
But my library group was growing larger.

I want to be part of my students footprint, I want them to see in knowledge the way to a good and productive life, but also to inspire in them the desire to teach others in any field where they apply their capacities.

I’m always available whenever a student
or parent needs talking to me, and I would like to team up with the formers to improve my students’ learning experience. Please feel free to reach to me at any time.

Interesting facts
I wrote for a Mexican national newspaper from 2005-2016.
In 2006 I won the poetry prize Rosario Muñoz.
I research the linguistic neural connections where language lives in our brain.

I thank you for stopping by.
I look forward to teaming up with you,

Mariana

Living in the United States for every year has made me acutely aware of the cultural differences and I enjoy sharing these interesting findings with my students, it helps immensely to embrace, immerse and "feel" a foreign language.
I can meet my students in person or if more convenient be available for online lessons.
