Maria is a wonderful Spanish instructor. I highly recommend her.

I disagree with whoever is commenting below me. Miss. Maria was having difficulties with the server that day (June 24th/June 25th) so she sent out an e-mail to let us know that and then had it back up and running. The website is totally available now and she replies to lesson scheduling stuff super quick

Miss. Maria is really patient and kind teacher. Lessons with her are very fun and she is also very bubbly. She is also very knowledgeable

I had only one singing class with Maria, and it seemed just fine to me but then she didn't upload as agreed the material I was supposed to practice during the week so when we met again she wanted to give me the same class while we agreed on material to practice to move on... After that I tried to get in touch to change the time of a class and she never got back to me. She seems very busy, can never answer the phone and hardly answers emails, am not feeling am getting any personal attention. Am switching to another more available teacher.

Maria is great! She was very kind but also super professional. She made a website just for my lesson plan (which she tailored to my skill levels/goals). She's amazing :)

Maria is an awesome teacher! She's super attentive, friendly, and has a great structure to her lessons. I've only been taking singing lessons for a few weeks, but I've already learned a lot.

Maria is a fabulous Spanish instructor! She tailors each lesson to the needs and learning pace of the individual student, pulling in vocabulary and phrases that are useful in each student's everyday life. She is professional, organized, and encouraging. She makes great use of each lesson. I look forward to my online session with Maria every week.

These lessons really help alot especially with ms.maria. She is a really great teacher to learn from. She helps others and passes the advice about singing that she has already been through when she started. I thank her so much for being able to teach me I've really learned alot. Thank you!!

Maria has been a wonderful instructor for my 8 year old daughter - my daughter loves her classes and always looks forward to Mondays because of it. Maria's website with lessons is really great for studying outside of routine classes. Best of all, my daughter loves Maria's personality and wishes she could invite her to school performances - unfortunately we live some 2K miles apart :)

I'm a beginner singer and Ms. Maria has made the experience great! The lessons are fun and I do learn a lot! I'm very grateful for her! Affordable price for me being in school and all too! I've been with her just almost two months now and I really do notice a difference in my voice! And it's awesome how I'm able to choose my own song to practice too! Love it!
