Hi. My name is Maria Virginia. I’m Venezuelan, Native Spanish speaker, Civil Engineer, and a Certify Spanish Tutor.
I describe myself as adventurous and passionate for my profession. During the last 15 years, I worked travelling throughout Central and South America and I know in depth Hispanic culture and traditions, which are the reasons I teach Spanish.
I design a custom tutorial according to your interests. I will develop strategies, including studying and learning techniques that will help you reach your goals, while enjoying the Spanish Culture.
I offer 2 free classes. The first free class is an interview of an approximately 30 minutes, where I will learn about your personal interests, the level of your Spanish and your time availability. Based on your interests, I will design your classes, study material and method. The second class is a demo 1 hour class.
I have more than 30 years teaching and tutoring experience in Physics, Fluid Mechanics and solutions in the field of Civil Engineer. I also have taught music and for the last 3 years I taught Spanish at Worcester, UK.
I have experience preparing students to succeed in AS and A Levels Spanish test, as well as a deep knowledge of Spanish for those people who want to study or live in Spanish speaking countries, including perfect grammar.
I also teach what I call “Surviving Spanish” in a short period of time I have taught people who wanted to spend their vacation in Spanish speaking countries or simply impress someone by ordering food in the local language.
Maria has been tutoring me for the past two months. I have found her lessons to be fun and engaging. I like also how she tailors the lessons to cover grammar, which is something that I am keen on developing. I enjoy her relaxed and friendly style of teaching.
One thing I appreciate greatly is Maria's flexibility. On a few occasions I have had to re-arrange my regular class time with her and she has always been able to accommodate me. This is really useful in ensuring that I maintain my progress.
Maria is reliable and generous with her time, support and resources. She makes my lessons bespoke to me which means they are never boring.
Maria Virginia is a civil engineer by profession, therefore very analytical and smart, I know for a fact that she is very passionate on anything she does, if I was a student I would really like to have her as my mentor, she has travelled and work in Europe and Latin America giving her exposure to multi-cultural interaction.
Maria Virginia is my cousin, our mothers are sister, and she is a little bit older than me. That said, I know her for my entire life.
Mamiña, as we call her, is one amazing person. Not only ultra-book-smart, engineering, math, science, polyglot…. you name it….but also talented. She plays an array of musical instruments with ease and her personality and wisdom is unparalleled. A person to look up too, She literally set up the bar quite high for the rest of us.
I have to mention her good looks and her devotion to her work out as well, because her presence and persistence to whatever she get her mind into, together with her intellect and charming personality makes her an exceptional woman.
I am not complementing Mamiña because she is my first cousin, from a close family with great childhood, but because of it, I do know her very well.
Maria Virginia es a very dedicated and passionate person. Not only is her knowledge very high, but because she has lived in so many parts of the world she is able to deliver lessons that apply to specific regions of the world.
Maria is highly qualified, very intelligent and a great tutor. She has been teaching us for 1 1/2 years. She's funny but also to the point. If you want to learn efficiently but with fun, then Maria is for you.
María is passionate about language and she really enjoys teaching. She is hardworking, caring and works to help different abilities. Maria will tailor her way of tutoring depending on whether you want to concentrate on, for example, pronunciation or grammar or both. I highly recommend Maria as a tutor.
