Rosa María

I love to give my time and companionship to young girls and women who have disabilities and were abandoned, as well as children with physical and mental development disabilities. I like reading about a variety to things including medicine and nature, customs and traditions of the Maya, Guatemala legends, and religion. I also enjoy exchanging opinions, doing crafts, and exercising.

Welcome!

¡Hola! Soy Rosa María García. Soy una maestra de español en línea. Soy de Guatemala y te saludo desde las ruinas de San Jerónimo. Estas ruinas fueron fundadas más o menos en el siglo XVI. En mi tiempo libre me gusta visitar ruinas, iglesias y todos los lugares que son muy bonitos de nuestra ciudad. Me gusta hacer un poco de deporte. Me gusta bailar salsa, y me gusta hacer como las abuelitas “tejidos” a crochet o tricot. ¿Qué me gusta del español? ¿De enseñar español? Pues, me gusta hacer lecturas, y hacer un intercambio oral, sobre nuestras culturas y nuestras experiencias personales.  Yo espero que tú te decidas a practicar el español, porque la práctica constante es lo que te va ayudar a tener una fluidez.

Hello! I am Rosa María García. I am an online Spanish teacher. I am from Guatemala and I greet you from the ruins of San Jerónimo. These ruins were founded more or less in the 16th century. In my free time I like to visit ruins, churches and all the very beautiful places in our city. I like to do a little sport, I like to dance salsa, and I like to crochet or knit like grannies do. What do I like about Spanish? To teach Spanish? Well, I like to do readings, and have an oral exchange, about our cultures and our personal experiences. I hope that you decide to practice Spanish, because constant practice is what will help you to have fluency.

Teaching Style

I start out with each new student by understanding their goals and learning style to customize a program for their success. Due to the fact that my classes are 1-on-1, they are very private and focused on the needs of the learner. I teach through an immersion style of learning. The benefit of the internet is that my classes are also very accessible from anywhere and my availability is flexible to accommodate the student’s schedule.

I use different learning tools, but one of my favorites to use is Google Docs. This is a wonderful tool where the student and I can both write on the document at the same time. It’s like having a virtual classroom board!  My lessons include speaking, reading, listening and writing according to the interests and goals of each student.

The success of each student is my goal.

What do people say about Rosa María?

I have been a faithful student of Rosa María Garcia for several years now. I try to never miss a single week. When I began, my Spanish was halting, stumbling. She has been very patient and very helpful. Now, when I go on vacation in a Spanish speaking country, I feel confident enough to strike up a conversation and chat with whomever I meet, and enjoy the experience. In addition, it makes me very happy to know that I have a good friend in a foreign country. It makes me feel more like a citizen of the world. I hope that you give it a try, too."

Retired, Former Math Teacher
I have been studying with Rosa Maria for a little over four years. During that period, I have not only found her to be a good teacher but a friend as well. Rosa Maria has all of the good qualities of a wonderful teacher. She is very patient and is well versed in Spanish grammar. Living in the States (Taos, New Mexico) as I do, I have been exposed to many different Spanish accents, including our local one. Rosa Maria has a very clear accent, one that could be understood in any of the many Latino countries. This is an important point as understanding the teacher is of paramount importance to Spanish learners at all levels.”
