If you select this option, WyzAnt will ask interested tutors to contact you by email if they are able to help. A maximum of five different tutors will email you and none of your personal information, including your email address, will be released.

I have twenty-three years of experience teaching all levels of middle and high school Spanish and French (including AP language and literature), and have also taught ESL for several years during that time.

I hold Master's degrees in both Spanish and French from Middlebury College, and can help your student with fun activities that will build confidence with any aspect of their language learning.

I will provide strategies for better memorization and performance in real-language situations, as well as help develop reading and writing proficiency. My methods have yielded excellent results at top prep schools, and can help your student, too.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Spanish

Minored in Spanish at the University of Arizona.
M.A. in Spanish from Middlebury College
Have taught Spanish at all levels, including Advanced Placement Language and Literature at the high school level.
Currently working on becoming an interpreter for the AZ state court system.

Tennis

I have been a tennis coach at the high school level for over 10 years, and am also a very strong player who played tournament tennis in high school. I have developed many exercises with my teams to help them not only to learn how to improve their skills but also to examine and strengthen their mental game. My coaching and teaching experience have provided me with ample strategies to help break down lessons into simple, easy-to-understand pieces that make learning accessible and fun.
