About Me
italki teacher since Dec 9, 2021
Hi! I'm 22 years old and just graduated from college with degrees in Ecology and Literature. I was born and have lived in the United States, but both of my parents and my entire extended family are from Mexico. I love writing stories, bird watching (I love birds!), and sitting by lakes. I love all kinds of movies, from rom-coms to horror.

Mariel is truly a gifted teacher! She is understanding and a good listener. This has been my second lesson with her. We have been working on writing and she's definitely helped me out so much! She lets you know of what could be improved, plus she is super encouraging and very knowledgeable too! I highly suggest you book a lesson with her. I am looking forward to taking more lessons with her! :)

I enjoyed talking with Mariel. I am relatively new to Spanish and am seeking more practice with speaking and listening comprehension. As much as I want to learn a language, the greatest challenge has been my tendency to feel super nervous when I first meet new people. Mariel was great at helping me find words and at correcting grammar and pronunciation. Her calm demeanor was reassuring, and I found myself being able to think in Spanish more easily during our conversation.

The tutor only wants to speak with students in Spanish. If I could carry a conversation in Spanish I wouldn't need a tutor. This tutor's philosophy is, if she speaks in Spanish, the student will learn Spanish -- without the tutor actually teaching how to learn Spanish - just by talking Spanish the student will learn how to speak Spanish.
