Hi, My name is Inés and I am a native Spanish speaker from Spain. I am currently available to teach conversational Spanish through Skype. 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 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 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.

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.

After 5 lessons with Inés, I have nothing but amazing things to say about this teacher! She is always personable and patient with me during our 45 minute lessons and extremely accommodating to my erratic schedule. Would 100% recommend her to a friend.

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.

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.

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.
