¡Hola! Mi nombre es Marina.

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 can’t wait to meet you in class!

So far so good ..just wish the computer connection was better. But other than that she seems friendly and was able to engage my timid five year old ...looking forward to more sessions to see how my daughter progresses.

This was my first class and I was a bit nervous. Marina made me feel very comfortable. I felt that she valued my attendance and input. It was a great experience.
