Hello, my name is Maria and I am Mexican-American and a native Spanish speaker. I currently live in Dallas, Texas. I have an undergraduate degree in Foreign Languages from the University of Texas at El Paso and a master’s degree in Engineering. I've been teaching for over 16 years from Elementary all the way to High School.
I currently specialized in test preparation as well as teaching Spanish for tourism, Spanish for business, Spanish for teachers or Spanish for Middle School-High School. I have taught students all around the World. I really enjoy working with any level of Spanish.
I love reading, walking, and of course, teaching! Please contact me if you need any help!
Because I love languages, I love culture! The is so much you can learn from other languages and connect with other people! I also love to teach Spanish because I love to teach other people how languages open the World to many new opportunities, either professionally or personally.

When working with a prospect, the most important aspect of the entire process is building a rapport. At this point in time, students have potentially struggled with various topics, so the importance of instilling confidence in them before any tutoring begins is essential to their success. Nevertheless, prior to scheduling sessions, I like to meet with the student and/or parent(s). We work hand in hand to build their specialized plan of action. Students create a detailed description of their current situation and their desired results. Next, we come up with a set of goals and how to implement the plan of action appropriately in order to accomplish said results. This plan depends on the immediate needs of the student, but many plans include some sort of accommodation to pre and post-session communication inorder to track progress.
