Nunca es tarde si la dicha es buena!
It is never too late…..to learn and speak Spanish as a native!
Are you tired of learning spanish but still struggling to speak it, or don't feel confident? Is speaking Spanish a GOAL for you or your kiddo? Nothing better than learning it from a native person.
Spanish is my first language and have been speaking it fluently my whole life and I lived in Spain for more than 30 years. Spanish is a fun and easy going language to me and I commit to teach you what you are looking for!
Let's get started!
Hello! My name is Meritxell, but you can call me Meri (easier and shorter)! I was born and raised in Barcelona (Spain), but have been living abroad for the past 7 years (Brazil, US).
During these years living abroad, apart from my job as a pharmacist, I started teaching Spanish classes as a hobby in spare times and helped colleagues at work and kids to learn and get confident with Spanish.
I recently moved here to Scottsdale (AZ), and I want to continue helping people to gain confidence with Spanish. Is something I love doing! And seeing how people feel when they improve in a foreign language is great!
• Private individual Spanish tutoring or Small group class – Kids/youths/Adults
• In-home or office tutoring (or public library or cafe) for Scottsdale and Phoenix.
• Online classes
First of all is important for me to know which are your goals with learning Spanish to be able to adapt the classes to your specific needs. Whether you need Spanish for business, for your kid who is at school or just for the fun of learning a new language and culture, I will adapt the learning to your needs, level and interest topics. I will create a program 100% adapted to your passions and projects. When you learn things with passion, it always seems easier! I will tailor every class to your level, beginner, intermediate or advanced and I will show you key words, expressions, how to build sentences, main differences between both languages and common mistakes.
Español para niños!! / Spanish for kids!!
Is your kid already taking lessons but feels lost and need some tutoring to improve and help him with homework? Or do you want him to start learning Spanish from scratch?
My approach when it comes to tutoring Spanish to children is Total Immersion. ). I am married and have two girls (aged 6-8yo) who are bilingual Spanish-English, and also learnt native Portuguese while being in Brazil. So our house is always switching from one language to another, although our main language is Spanish. I have experienced at home total immersion learning since they were born and is the best way to learn a new language, especially for kids who learn things so fast! It has been my experience that we need to make the learning experience fun for kids. The kid will be exposed to the new language and will be able to talk it as a native. I teach Spanish "through playing", which means the kids are engaged in different interactive hands-on and conversational games, which makes it fun for them.
