I teach with an educational program that develops proficiency in spelling, vocabulary and reading comprehension of the Spanish language. At the same time, enhances their intellectual capacity and critical thinking.
I adjust the lessons for each student.

I teach with an educational, fun system which assists students in deep understanding of mathematics so that all students who practice it, develop their capacity in this area.
This system is a very effective tool in the formation of math concepts as it has methodologies for enrichment and remediation.

I took Spanish classes with Marta. She didn't show up for the 5th lesson and after my polite inquiry she sent an email suggesting I should look for a different teacher and cancelled the remaining lesson. This was a very disappointing turn of events for me after having had 4 good lessons with her. While I understand that life can get in the way and priorities can shift, I would at least have expected an explanation.

Marta is very nice and sweet! I like that she gives me homework every week and forces me to speak Spanish during our lessons. Great teacher!

Marta is a great instructor. She has helped my daughter expand her Spanish vocabulary immensely. She is professional and incorporates "fun" with learning. I would recommend her to other parents who have children that need tutoring.

Marta is very nice, easy to get along with and friendly. I think this is an important quality for a teacher to have because anyone who wants to learn a new language usually will have some kind of fear or nervousness about learning a new language. But Marta helps the student feel more comfortable and excited to learn. I can also tell that she has a great love for teaching, which is great!

My son was doing terrible in school until this teacher took over and showed him how to have fun with math, which made him to have fun by learning. After a short while he started doing better in all the other subjects in school.
It looked strange to me, that he started to enjoyed going to math class, and there for, doing much better in school.

My son absolutely loves Math sessions, we just went back to school and my son is already asking me when will he start Cubits. This class helped my son tremendously in his math class and helped him understand place value, adding without using his fingers.. I am amazed at how much my son progressed. I truly recommend Martha P. with my eyes closed she is truly amazing at what she does.
