I am a native Spanish speaker from Spain and I can help you practice and improve your Spanish conversation skills.

In my experience, I have found that the best way to learn a language is through practice, instead of just attending courses and memorization.

Look forward to helping you with your Spanish!

About Inés C.

Hi, My name is Inés and have helped students of Spanish with different levels improve their conversational Spanish skills for more than 5 years.

During the class, we can talk about any topic that interest you and/or skills you want to improve. In addition, I can help you with grammar. However, practicing Spanish at conversation level will be the focus of my tutoring.

Thanks to I know three languages I understand the difficulties of learning a new language.

DURING THE CLASS

For my online classes, I usually use articles or texts, and videos or movies about topics that my students find interesting. After they have read them and/or watch them, we discuss them in class.

During our conversations, I correct grammar and pronunciation, while they practice their conversational and listening skills.

In addition, if the student needs some help with grammar, I usually send them a power point with the theory about that grammar explained for them to read it. Then, we focus on practice by doing activities/exercises and applying that grammar in our conversations.

The class is very interactive and I always make it as fun as possible.

There is no memorization because it is through practice that you will finally get it!

ALL CLASSES INCLUDE

- Correction of grammar and pronunciation.

- Practice of speaking and listening skills.

- Answering questions.

- Material and activities/exercises for the class and homework (if needed).

- Correction of activities/exercises (if needed).

LEVELS

- Beginner level: You know enough grammar, but you struggle to start a conversation. You want to start speaking some Spanish.

- Intermediate or above level: When you are not a beginner, you know pretty the grammar. You want to practice and improve your conversation skills.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

- Specialty: Spanish from Spain.

- I only accept students older than 18 who have at least a basic understanding of Spanish grammar to start a conversation.

- 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'm growing much more confident that I can actually speak Spanish. I still have a way to go, but I'm fired up to prepare better for next week!

Inés is a wonderful teacher. She is patient and friendly and takes the time to learn about the interests of her students so that the lessons can be more engaging.

She listens closely so if any grammar mistakes are made when I’m speaking, she can correct them or offer suggestions for more common ways to say things. And she’s always open to any questions I have.

I’ve really been enjoying our lessons!

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.

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! :-)

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.
