Hi, My name is Inés and I am a native Spanish speaker from Spain. I am currently available to teach conversational Spanish through online. I have helped several people with different levels improve their conversational Spanish skills through a language exchange and working as a private tutor. We focused on correct pronunciation, grammar and improve of listening and conversational skills. Thanks to I know three languages I understand the difficulties of learning a new language. In my experience, I have found that the best way to learn a language is through practice, instead of attending courses and memorization.
For my online classes, I usually use articles or texts about topics that my students find interesting. They read them and we discuss them in class. Also, I use videos or movies. During our conversations, I correct grammar and pronunciation, while they practice their conversational and listening skills. The class is very interactive and I always make it as fun as possible. In addition, if the student wants to focus on grammar, I use power points to explain the theory and then we focus on practice by doing exercises and applying that grammar in our conversations. There is no memorization because it is through practice that you will finally get it!
I offer conversational Spanish classes to give you the opportunity to practice and improve your conversational skills. We can focus on listening and/or speaking. We can talk about topics that interest you or skills you want to improve. Additionally, I also help with grammar.
I only accept students who have at least a basic understanding of Spanish. Also, I try to be as flexible as possible in regards to scheduling classes. However, if it is not because of an emergency, I will not be able to reschedule a class unless the student gives 24 hours of notice.
Because practice is what you need!
I look forward to hearing from you.
I have been doing weekly lessons with Inés for the past 3 months. These are the reasons she is a wonderful instructor:
*She utilizes both video and written text in our lessons. The written text can be reviewed after the lesson and helps me to learn.
*She has a calm, comfortable demeanor and is easy to engage with. She makes corrections in a way that doesn't cut off, or stifle, the conversation.
*She explains grammar rules and vocabulary in a clear and precise manner.
*She sends me relevant materials to review and practice via email.
*She is prompt and reliable, providing plenty of advance warning when she needs to change the time/date of a lesson and flexible with schedule changes that i need to make.
I purposefully waited to post a review until i had completed a number of lessons. Now that i have, I wholeheartedly recommend Inés as an instructor.
Very accommodating and helpful.
Iñes is very patient.
Our first lesson was great. I think I''m really going to love taking lessons with Ines. I am looking forward fir the next one.
I have been studying Spanish with Inés now for 2 years and have seen much improvement! She provides the corrections that I need to move from intermediate level to advanced. She is willing to customize the class to fit your needs and has unlimited patience! I am glad she is there for me on this journey to Spanish fluency! :-)+ Read More

Love working with her. I feel like I have improved so much. Looking forward to more lessons!!
I enjoyed my first Spanish lesson with Inés . She has taught me a lot so far and promotes hearing and speaking more ( movies articles and book etc ) to help become more familiar in saying and know certain words . She is great !
Ines is a great teacher. She is very knowledgeable, and fun to work with whether I am trying to learn grammar or just practicing conversation. She is also very flexible and will help you get your lesson in even if you can't do it at the usual scheduled time.+ Read More
Another great lesson!
I only wanted to practice my conversational skills. Ines did a great job of keeping the conversation going and helping me with my speaking grammar and vocabulary. I plan to continue lessons with her after I return from Spain.
Inés was very knowledgeable, flexible, patient, and helpful.
I had fun! Enjoyed remembering some of the Spanish I learned many years ago!
We're getting there! Can't wait for more classes.

I practiced Spanish with Ines over the course of several years and found her to be a very supportive and knowledgeable tutor. She was able to help me with a lot issues and questions I had about Spanish grammar and spelling. Furthermore, through general conversation my listening and speaking abilities greatly improved. Our sessions prepared me for the time I spent Mexico where I was able to apply my language skills in a practical sense. I would highly recommend Ines as Spanish tutor as I always found our language sessions to be pleasant and highly beneficial.+ Read More
Ines has helped me with my conversational English several times. I improved my conversational skills thanks to her before I went to the USA to study. She is prepared to help you practice your conversational language skills, both English and Spanish and since she is a native Spanish speaker makes her the perfect teacher for conversational Spanish.+ Read More
Inés and I meet at a cafe every saturday and practice Spanish. She is very helpful and can give so many examples based on her experiences in Spain. Definitely would recommend her to those wanting to learn Spanish from a native speaker.
