    She is an excellent tutor. She is highly organized with the content of her lessons and structure. She takes time to clarify if I have questions and multiple opportunities to practice the skills being learned. She is friendly, professional and positive.

    After the very first session with Maria Luisa I went straight to buying a package, now we meet every week. I’ve had four or five sessions so far and my Spanish is improving. She’s always accessible during the week to chat or answer questions and she encourages you to send her messages to practice outside of class. I never feel rushed or time crunched in the sessions, more like I’m talking to a friend. They’re fun and light and Maria Luisa is awesome! If anyone is looking for a Spanish tutor you won’t be sorry.

    Not only is she super professional (got back to me immediately) she’s great at explaining and breaking things down!!! I was using Duolingo app for Spanish but getting a tutor really helps so much more for breaking down the rules of the language and speaking correctly! I highly recommend! She has a great personality and is super kind!
