« Mary is a stellar tutor for TOEFL. I was in need of a plan for tutoring, with a professional of the language and Mary, who holds a doctoral Degree was the perfect option! She has the hands on experience and highest qualifications to teach it. I love the 'interview' or first free class she had with me to help me identify a path and a weekly plan! »

¿Quieres aprender inglés con una profesora dinámica con Doctorado y experiencia de más de 15 años enseñando inglés? Personalizo todas mis clases adaptándolas a tus necesidades profesionales y personal

Methodology

I focus on conversational and oral expression but also can help improve your reading comprehension.

I will help you loosen up and get rid of your shyness and start speaking, boosting your confidence. I believe in learning by doing, and there is no better way to learn a language than start speaking it since minute one.

If you are advanced, I will teach you to correct your accent, with local expressions and slang that will make you sound like a real native.

Background

Soy nativa hablante de lengua inglesa y tengo un Doctorado y Maestría en enseñanza del inglés. Llevo más de 15 años enseñando a nivel universitario en Estados Unidos y Europa. Puedes ver los comentarios de mis alumnos en Google y en mi página web (concealed information)

Mary is a stellar tutor for TOEFL. I was in need of a plan for tutoring, with a professional of the language and Mary, who holds a doctoral Degree was the perfect option! She has the hands on experience and highest qualifications to teach it. I love the 'interview' or first free class she had with me to help me identify a path and a weekly plan!

The course with Maria via Skype has been great. I’ve been taking courses with her for more tan 5 months and I was very excited to see how much my progress was. She invests a lot of time to prepare me materials that are relevant to discuss in Spanish for my business. I recommend her without hesitation. She is an authentic professional of the language and culture, besides an expert in business in Spanish. Try for yourself!

Doctor Maria Aparicio is a great professor and a passionate instructor. I had an excellent experience in our course. It lasted 40 hours and when I started I could barely speak Spanish and now I am almost at an intermediate level. I watch movies in Spanish and I can follow them. She customized every session and it was great because she adapted to all my needs. Professionally speaking, I can now communicate with my patients and I can say that it was the best investment I have done in the past few years. I recommend Maria and her teaching business without reservation.

I am beyond impressed with the results I am getting with my Spanish and how Maria teaches me in every lesson. She tailors each session prior to meeting and she motivates me all the time.
She is sweet, genuine, professional and positive.

I have waited to write a review because I wanted to see how much I have improved. What a huge jump, I started as a beginner and now I am feeling I can reach an intermediate level in a few months.

I have absolutely no regrets about choosing Maria.
It was a well worthy investment. Don't take my word for it... try it for yourself!

Alison

Great courses, as always! Maria has taught me to talk in Spanish since the very first class. She designs exercises that help target my weaknesses that is not easy to do for someone who has an advanced level. It is obvious that she spends a lot of time preparing for our class and has a lot of experience in teaching. She understands why I don’t get certain grammatical points. I have improved so much that I can participate in a conversation with several people speaking at the same time. I’ve taken several courses with Maria for about 10 months and it is definitely worth the price. I am currently taking a course to reduce my accent. I highly recommend Maria.

I met Doctor Maria a few months ago when I was searching for a very qualified tutor to improve my Spanish. I wanted to focus on Speaking and it has definitely been the best decision I made. She is very flexible and customizes every lesson to my needs, which change a lot over the weeks. I need to speak Spanish for my business and she definitely made my dream to make more customers. She makes the classes very hands-on and all the resources she provides for me is delivered to my email 24-48 hours after the class. I recommend Doctor Aparicio without any doubt. It is worth the money!

Laura

I cannot speak highly enough about Doctor Aparicio and Language Master Group tutoring service in Spanish. The weekly private lessons Maria prepares every week just for me are wonderful. She is always checking in with me, keeps me informed of all the progress. She gives me an update on the lesson in a short overview. It is quite helpful!
An amazing and professional team of tutors who are college professors!

Maria is no doubt the best English and Spanish teacher I have ever had. It sounds funny but I hired her to teach me both languages, as she is bilingual.

It seems as though she anticipates my every need, and helps me with challenges that are a stretch for other teachers, such as pronunciation and advanced grammar. She teaches from the perspective of every student's unique needs, and for that reason alone, I think it is great value for money to take classes with her, even though there are cheaper classes to be found elsewhere.

She is a doctor in Spanish and has been teaching English at the university for so many years that you can tell she is a profesional.

Alan

I just started the 48 hour-Spanish for Business course and I cannot believe how fast I have started speaking in Spanish at work.
Thanks for your flexibility, Maria, your professionalism is evident!

Edward

Very helpful! I am speaking better now & Maria helps me with corrections when necessary, & her exercises are really helping me deal with the more complicated aspects of grammar, sometimes topics I fell behind on in group classes. Maria has endless patience, and has always been able to turn our lesson into a good one, no matter how well or poorly I am doing with my Spanish that particular day. Gracias, Professor Maria!
