About Mara

Mara was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina and raised by Paraguayan immigrants. She attended the University of Buenos Aires where she received her bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. Afterwards, Mara worked in finance for five years. Ultimately she found her job in finance unfulfilling in a time in which her home country was experiencing economic instability. Therefore, she decided to learn English in order to move out or Argentina in search of better opportunities.

Even though she had studied English before in high school and had taken private lessons, she couldn’t speak English. She later found an immersive way to learn in Buenos Aires which allowed her to get her first job outside of Argentina in Atlanta, GA. Upon reflecting on her experience learning English she thought about providing lessons in Spanish in an immersive way. In order to do so, Mara got certified and also created a trademark methodology that converts Spanish grammar into a conversation.
