HOLA! Your native Spanish Tutor welcomes you to the fascinating world of Spanish language!
Let's start talking about your motivation, interests and goals for taking Spanish lessons; let's discover, together, your individual factors, unique learning style and skills to acquire a foreign language. Based on these elements, I will design a customized program, just for you, and I will guide you through it to accomplish your objective You will enjoy the dynamic classes, where you are the central player! For nine years I was a lecturer of Spanish as a Foreign Language at Purdue University, Indiana University, Ivy Tech Community College and River Forest High School in Indiana. In Purdue University I also held the positions of Language Lab Supervisor, Co-Director of Study Trips to South America, and Spanish Club Advisor where the emphasis was on cross-cultural concepts and activities. For eight years between 2011 and 2019, I resided most of the time in my country of origin, where I directed a language center focused on English and Spanish for Specific Purposes programs. I am currently providing personalized Spanish and English online classes to students residing in Switzerland and South America. I am passionate for sharing the things I master, and one of them is the Spanish language. I would love to share my knowledge and expertise with You!
About Maria Z.

"Language is not a genetic gift, it is a social gift. Learning a new language is becoming a member of the club -the community of speakers of that language." Frank Smith. Did you know that Spanish is spoken by around 580 million people in 22 countries? I would like to invite you to join the great club of Spanish-speakers. Whether you are looking for tutoring to reinforce your Spanish classes at school, or to prepare a business presentation in a Hispanic community, or you are traveling to a Spanish-speaking country, or you would like to become a member of the world community of speakers of Spanish, I would be honored to guide you through this journey. You and I, as a team, will achieve your objectives of acquiring Spanish language. I am a seasoned instructor of Spanish. I have been teaching Spanish for the last 17 years, in the United States, and in person and online settings from Peru, my birth country. I completed 81 graduate hours for the program "Dual Master's Degree in Teaching English and Spanish as Foreign Languages" from European University of the Atlantic, Spain. I hold an MBA, master's degree of Business Administration from University of the Americas, Mexico, and a bachelor's degree of Administrative Sciences from the Pontifical Catholic University, Peru. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to acquire Spanish. Bienvenido! Welcome!

Maria is a very well informed teacher. Her command of the Spanish language is impeccable, and her enthusiasm for teaching the language is evident from the get-go. She is helping me improve my audio comprehension and my speaking ability. All that, and she is a very pleasant person to deal with.
