My name is Tamara Marie and I'm a Certified Language Coach specializing in brain-friendly ways to learn foreign languages faster.
Speaking Spanish has allowed me to travel and make connections in Costa Rica, Argentina, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, and Mexico (without a translator). But I wasn’t born a gifted language learner. I grew up in the US only speaking English.
I learned Spanish as an adult after I became obsessed with salsa music. I realized I loved the rhythm but I didn’t know what the music was really about.
I was driven to understand the meaning of the songs and connect with Latino culture, so I used the music as my motivation and my learning material. I'll never forget the first time someone asked me if I was a native Spanish speaker.
I've also made my share of mistakes, and have learned some valuable lessons that will save you time so you can get fluent faster.
I help my clients and learning communitues get their heads out of textbooks and get comfortable speaking Spanish in the real world.
