¡Hola! Mi nombre es Marina. Soy de Argentina y te invito a conocer una forma dinámica y diferente de aprender español :)

I’m looking forward to meeting you online and learning Spanish together! Let me share a few words about me…

I'm a native Spanish teacher enthusiastic about exploring new ways to connect with students from all around the globe. I have two bachelor’s degrees in English teaching and English/Spanish translation. I've been teaching English and Spanish and using online platforms and digital learning tools for almost 10 years now. I also studied foreign language education and special education at the State University of New York in Geneseo, and have various endorsements in e-moderation, remote teaching and learning platforms from the British Council, and Spanish and Portuguese as foreign and second languages from Universidad Nacional de Córdoba.

I’ve had the chance to work with students from the US, Canada, Australia, Algeria, China, Germany, Brazil, among many others. What I enjoy the most is sharing experiences and getting to know my students through Spanish. I'm currently offering online lessons only as I'm back home in Argentina :)

I can’t wait to meet you in class!

Kaile said she really enjoyed it and already learned from the very first tutorial. She feels confident that this will help her in her Spanish speaking-learning goals.

We all love Marina, both my 7 and 5 year old. She is thorough, has a plan in place and the kids enjoy the games, songs and activities. Very good for young kids.
