What students ARE SAYING about maru

These are only some real reviews received from actual students.


I loved my Spanish classes with Maru. Every lesson was different and interesting and I gained lots of confidence really quickly. Languages have never come easily to me but Maru always encouraged me to think of different ways of constructing what it was I wanted to say when I got in to difficulty. It really helped improve my fluency. I would recommend classes with Maru to anyone and will always be grateful to her for helping me so much.

“Maru’s style adapts to the student”

I am so pleased with the progress I have made. I had one-to-one sessions with Maru and when I returned to the United States I continued my lessons online. Maru’s style adapts to the needs of the student. In my case, she focused on those areas that were my weakest - the verbs. She allowed me to progress at a comfortable speed. She provided adequate homework and that allowed me more opportunity to practice both my speaking and writing skills. I would rate her highly compared to other language professors I have had.

“She is a lovely person. We really connected”

Maru has been my teacher for a year now. I needed to learn Spanish quickly for work purposes and Maru really helped me reach that goal. I improved a lot in a short period of time. She is a very knowledgeable and engaging teacher and has a great way of explaining/dealing with the difficult Spanish tenses. She really puts the focus on your needs rather than just following a general curriculum. She is a lovely person. We really connected. I would highly recommend Maru as your Spanish teacher.
