With over 5 years of experience teaching Spanish, I strive to cater each and every lesson to the student's learning style and personal goals. I personalize lessons by integrating engaging discussion with grammar and vocabulary. I am C2 Certified by the Instituto de Cervantes and I can help you if you are a beginner, intermediate, or advanced and I love to help niche subjects like business Spanish, medical Spanish, etc. Let's get started with learning Spanish. A por ello!

About Mara G.

I am an Academic Advisor and Study Planning Specialist. I have a Bachelors of Science in Biology, a Masters in Public Health- Epidemiology; and a I got my second Masters in Digital Marketing in Barcelona, Spain. My passions are Spanish and Science. I work with a wide range of students, from elementary school children to PhD candidates and my teaching approach is highly personalized to each student's unique learning style and personal goals.

With Spanish, I like to focus heavily on conversation while reinforcing grammar and vocabulary concepts along the way. I am C2 Certified by the Instituto de Cervantes in Spanish and I have experience teaching students from as young as 5 years old all the way to 80 years old. I also give professional Spanish classes (business, medical, entertainment, etc.)

Biology, and science in general, is another great passion of mine. I have 7 years of experience teaching students of all levels and backgrounds. I was a Biology Lab Instructor at my university for 2 years, where I refined my lecturing and practical skills. My approach to teaching Biology is breaking a large, complex topic down to small, digestible pieces. Once we understand the simple concepts, we then string them together to understand the big picture.

If you are interested in Study Planning, Spanish, or Biology, feel free to contact me.

Looking forward to hearing from you!
