Hi there, I’m Mary Bueno

"Learning Spanish can be fun and go hand in hand with culture."

My name is Mary Bueno. I was born in Mexico City and graduated from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), with a degree in Journalism and Communication Science. I worked there as a TA, in the School of Journalism, in Mexico City. When I was offered a professor position at the University, I couldn’t take it because I was engaged to be married and had plans to move the United States


Nevertheless, I was craving for more, so I decided to get a Master's degree to be able to teach adults in College. While studying at San Jose State University, I again worked as a TA which greatly helped me to enable my teaching philosophy: Effective learning can be also fun and go hand in hand with culture. I also worked for Chabot College for 13 years as a Spanish Professor, teaching around 800 students.


I love my profession. I have been teaching Spanish Language and Culture in California since 1994, and I am grateful to be able to do so every day. I have also wrote a Mexican History Book in Spanish, “Malinche”, published by Amazon, and I have written some articles for the academic magazine of the “Foreign Language Association of Northern California”.

Finally, the next journey is already here! On line teaching! A great option! But if you prefer, one on one, or small groups, can be available too. Just reserve your spot and let’s get started.

iGracias y Bienvenidos!
