Senora Sparkman has been working with my son, now 7, for the past 18 months. During that time, he has thrived. His Spanish is better with each passing week and he feels increasingly confident in his skills. In addition to her in person group classes, he has taken her monthly art classes as well, which he loves! Now, he receives 1-on-1 tutoring online, which has gone fantastic. I had some initial hesitation, due to concerns about my son’s learning style, however he has not only enjoyed this way of learning, but excelled with this method. One of the features I love in addition to his twice weekly classes is that he also has access to online books (in Spanish, of course) as well as other online tools. Not only do we intend to keep our son enrolled with Spanish Nuts & Bolts, but I recommend the program to anyone who is interested in expanding their child’s Spanish proficiency.

I have two boys who have been part of Senora Sparkman’s program for several years. We started with the art classes, to the afterschool program, and now the online program. All of her programs have been built on a foundation of support but also educational fun. Senora Sparkman’s zest for life truly resonates throughout her program and that positivity transfers to the children she teaches. Throughout the programs, especially the online program, I have seen both my kids’ confidence in reading and writing grow exponentially. It is truly comforting as a parent to know that there is a program out there to help push their Spanish proficiency forward. Spanish Nuts and Bolts comes with my highest recommendation as a program that is not only supportive, but also fun and educational, and worth the investment for expanding any child’s Spanish proficiency.

Can’t say enough positive things about this program. It is truly a Fantastic Spanish Program!!! My child flourished en Espanol in such a fun, playful way that she often forgot that she was learning Spanish. Kudos to Spanish Nuts & Bolts for making learning so much fun for all!!!
We were looking for online Spanish lessons or tutoring to support our child. We wanted to have a dedicated, certificated teacher who could modify lessons to best meet his needs. We liked that www.spanishnutsandbolts.com has access to tutoring, games, songs, and online downloads for Spanish practice. What’s even better is that you can order the games to play at home!! They are easy to play and a great way to practice the Spanish language while having fun!! We highly recommend this website and teacher to families looking for Spanish language support.

Sra. Sparkman is an excellent teacher that has been teaching my kids in Spanish for the past 4 years. She is very flexible in her teaching method, adjusting to each kid’s needs, always encouraging, and makes learning fun. My daughter is only 9 can hold a legitimate conversation with our Spanish speaking relatives. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone that is looking to learn or improve their Spanish.
Senora Sparkman's Spanish class was a highlight of the week for my early elementary homeschooler. She provided excellent instruction, fun games and songs, and wonderful encouragement to all students in the class- skillfully keeping everyone in the online classroom engaged. When class ended for the semester, we really missed the presence of a passionate and talented teacher in our lives! Muchas gracias!

I worked with Mikal Sparkman for eight years at the (Spanish) immersion school. She is a master teacher. Now having just witnessed her tutor my own child this semester in Introductory level Spanish, I can reaffirm that Señora Sparkman is focused on a growth mindset for each of her students. Specific instruction tailored for the individual student is the top priority. As they say in Argentina, “Es una maestra de diez” (top notch)
You can’t go wrong here, sign up.

“We have had the dyslexia conversation before. 😊 I fully trust you… This Spanish [class] is the only class…with an amazing teacher who understands kids like him.“

My son has enjoyed learning from Señora Sparkman! He feels he is understanding and speaking more of the language everyday! I very much appreciate Señora Sparkman’s flexibility. When my son was sick, she gave him extra days to complete his final test. As a parent, I love the extra credit assignments. She allows the child to have fun and be creative while still speaking the language.
Thank you so much for all that you do… all the extra time you take for us. You make learning fun on all levels and that is a true blessing. You are very special and we all appreciate you!
We absolutely love your class and we are 100% planning to make it a part of ****’s 6th grade classes at the end of summer. Please keep us on your very short list... Thank you so much for all of the work you have done with *******.
Thank you for another year of wonderful learning experiences! I'm so impressed by the progress **** has made and how much he enjoys learning Spanish. I know he is very quiet and probably doesn't show it too often, but he really enjoys learning the language and attending the classes... Thank you so much for providing this opportunity to homeschooled students.

...he pulled all of his grades in Spanish up to mostly S+'s and just a couple S's. (This is not how we started the year). Super, super exciting!!! He is doing so very well! Your class has helped bring him out of his shell and feel so much more confident with his Spanish!!!!

I appreciate what you’ve done for us so much! Without you, we wouldn’t be where we are today, with a 3rd grader who LOVES Spanish! She had a costume for trunk or treat last night and she was an Inca Indian who only spoke Spanish. You helped grow that love and make it something we could take even further!
I think you’re so good at this and students are lucky to have you!
