About

Hi there!

I have been teaching since I was in college and I started working as a tutor on Tutors.com almost 3 years ago now!

I am originally from Spain, so I love sharing my language and my culture with my students.

I try to do my classes as dynamic as possible, adding listening and speaking exercises even for beginners. I believe that every person, regardless the age, learns differently and I try to adapt each class to each student.

My goal as a tutor is to create an environment in which the student enjoys learning and at the same time, they feel comfortable and confident enough to ask questions and speak Spanish. English is my second language so I know it takes patience and getting out of your comfort zone to learn another language but I can tell you it is worth it!

Miriam is very knowledgeable and personable. She presents information in a structured way that is tailored to the specific learning style of the student. She is also fun and hilarious which makes learning something new a little easier! I have been working with her for 3 months and have made significant progress in my journey of mastering the Spanish language since becoming her student.

It is one thing to be a tutor but it is another to be a great COACH…. Miriam has been above and beyond what I could’ve expected. Learning a new language can be daunting, however with Miriam I have not only enjoyed every conversation and lesson but I’ve never felt more like I’m being immersed in the culture I’ve been so desperate to know more about! I’m relaxed going into every session, knowing Miriam will be patient and guide me every step of the way. Arguably the best learning environment I’ve had and I’m in it for the long haul!

I have been learning Spanish with Miriam for over a month now and I can confidently say that Miriam is one of the best language teachers I have come across in my life. Her style is very different from a typical high school syllabus that forces students to memorize grammar and vocab without allowing space to chat and write creatively. At first I was a bit worried about my ability to pick up a new language at age 25 while working but Miriam is so incredibly encouraging. She knows how to adapt her teaching style for different ages and tapped into my interests of learning business Spanish as well as traveling/meeting people around the world. I not only learned a lot of Spanish grammar at a very fast pace but also Spanish culture, politics, and conversational skills within the workplace and in a casual setting. She makes sure that I am constantly utilizing the grammar and new vocabulary I learnt by giving me opportunities to tell stories about my life. She corrects my grammar and pronunciation in a patient way so I never feel shy about my mistakes. Even after our classes I always feel like my brain is working constantly to pierce together everything I learnt. As a result, over the past month I have gained a lot of confidence in expressing my thoughts in Spanish. I have also met many Spanish-speaking people who were impressed by my learning speed. Muchas gracias, Miriam!

Frequently asked questions

It depends on the needs of the student. I like to get to know the student first so we can see what works better and how we can organize and customize the classes.

I completed several courses on how to adapt classes for different levels of spanish and how to develop dinamic exercises for the student.

The price of each class varies between $20 and $22 per hour, depending on the age and the level of the student.

I have worked as a tutor since high school but I started teaching Spanish while I was living in London a several years ago and I loved it. I enjoyed being able to help people who were interested in learning more about the language and the culture.

Most of my students have been between 18-45 years old. The majority were looking to improve their speaking and listening skills, but many other were required to learn Spanish for their current jobs.

I also have experience teaching younger students as teenagers, helping them with their spanish homework-preparation for exams. 

Try to find a native teacher, always! Someone you can feel comfortable with :)
