    Ina is AMAZING! She has been teaching my husband and me Spanish via weekly private zooms and we've LOVED it and learned so much! I took Spanish back in high school, but in a matter of months with Ina I've already surpassed my … More high school knowledge and am more confident in speaking / writing / comprehending Spanish. Couldn't recommend Ina enough!

    Ina is absolutely wonderful! I simply can not think of a single time where I’ve been disappointed with her teaching quality and approach. She also happens to be a very warm and wonderful exceptional person.
    Ina is very clear in her teaching
    … More and incredibly patient. She is very willing to review grammar as frequently as I need to. I was raised with a grandparent and a parent who spoke Spanish to each other but discouraged the kids from speaking Spanish. This caused some very bad habits on my part and some shame that impacted my readiness to learn Spanish.
    However, I made a commitment when I turned sixty to finally learn Spanish! I fund Ina on the internet about a year ago and am SO happy I did. I am extremely pleased with my progress and have Ina to thank.
    If you are looking for a concise and patient teacher, AND someone who makes you laugh, call Ina. You will not be disappointed!!

    When Covid started in March 2020 I had a lot of time on my hands so I decided to dust off the cobwebs from my high school Spanish brain cells, buy a workbook and start studying Spanish on my own. I was fairly consistent with this for a … More year, using workbooks and the internet. I felt that my progress was going slower than expected, and I realized I actually needed to SPEAK Spanish in order to progress faster. I searched online for a teacher for one on one online instruction and found Ina. This has been the greatest decision. Ina determined my level of Spanish and we began lessons from there. Every minute of the lesson is beneficial. We speak back and forth in Spanish and she gently corrects me when necessary. We also use the workbook she requires so there is always homework to go over. She is always on time and there is no time wasted during the lesson. Ina is also very nice and easy to work with. She was my first ever Zoom meeting! I highly recommend her if you want to begin learning Spanish or take your current knowledge to the next level.

    My daughter has been taking lessons with Ina for some time now and I have seen her improve so much.

In school, she used to struggle, … More but after having various sessions with Ina, she was able to learn so much so quickly. Ina's wonderful teaching methods and dedication have truly worked miracles and we are so thankful for her. I would highly recommend Ina to anyone who is looking to educate themselves in Spanish. Her tutoring is truly a 5/5!

    I've been learning Spanish with Ina since January 2020. She helped me prepare for a trip to Guatemala where I would be spending time with folks who didn't speak any English by giving me conversational questions and responses. … More I came back for more structured learning because Ina is a true professional but still lots of fun. If you're lucky, you will get to meet her cute teaching prop Bruno! Ina's able to evaluate her students' levels and tailor their lessons accordingly.

    Ina is the best Spanish tutor I have ever had! I have been taking lessons with her for about 9 months and I have made immense progress in my Spanish. I took Spanish lessons in the past, and the information never seemed to stick, however … More after working with her my friends and family have even noticed how much I've improved/continue to improve. She provides a great mix of learning grammar/written Spanish and practicing talking in Spanish. She is patient and kind, and always willing to repeat her questions until you understand. I am so grateful to be learning from her!
