My last review on LinkedIn:"Marta is great. She is a reading specialist which helped me learn the strategies she provided for reading, speaking, writing, and listening in Spanish. She uses gestures, rhythms, chants and tricks for remembering grammar points and for retaining the content. I will refer any Spanish students to her who need help. She does a great job of making her students feel comfortable in a tutoring setting and tries to engage them with the material. She made time to tutor me during finals week which was also the day that she was leaving the country for Spain. THAT is an instructor who cares about your willingness to learn! She motivated me when I was struggling with Span 2001 and encouraged me to further pursue my Spanish skills. Thank you, Marta!l" What makes me a good tutor? Training (Read EdS and MEd), experience (K-12, college, and home tutoring), love for what I do, great students and my own temperament and personality.
