    You will never have a boring lesson with Marisa. Even if it is just a grammar lesson, she will find a way to make it interesting. Marisa never teaches from a textbook; she uses articles, quizzes, games, etc. She has different ways to introduce new vocabulary and grammar each week. Marisa even found a chapter book to read each week, which I find very interesting, not too hard but somewhat challenging. In just few months I noticed a big difference in my comprehension and ability to say full sentences, even it is just on the beginners level :)

    I have worked with Marissa for 7 months now and she has helped me immensely. She makes learning fun and we are always laughing. What I like the most is her approach. It’s not a bunch of studying boring grammar or vocabulary. I learn by doing reading exercises and speaking with her. New things are always introduced and my Spanish has improved greatly.

    As an adult, I studied Spanish with Marisa as my tutor once a week for several years. I thoroughly enjoyed her classes, and I learned a ton. I even actually began to speak Spanish, despite my extreme shyness! My reading vocabulary grew to the point that I, with some dictionary help, was able to read a popular novel in Spanish. She is a kind and good-humored teacher who gets the job done. I would recommend her to anyone.

    I was a little apprehensive about learning online. I am so happy I found Marisa. She put all my worries aside, and I have to say that the experience was fantastic. She makes a point of not going to the next topic until I first understand the prior concepts. Having our shared "cyber notebook" makes the class totally interactive. She can see when I type, and she corrects me on real time. She also posts links of grammar videos, pictures, and exercises to complement her lessons. Her classes are well planned and her teaching methods are very effective. I highly recommend her.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

We “meet” on Zoom and do a free asssessments if their needs, agree on method, length and frequency of lessons.  It’s important to discover what kind of learning is better for each student. Are they auditory learners? Visual learners? Do they need to polish their pronunciation? Is it specific vocabulary or general? 


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Spanish language teaching. BA. Buenos Aires university. Argentina.
