I grew up in Redondo Beach, CA, and after graduating high school I moved to Reno, Nevada, where I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish at the University of Nevada, Reno. My professors were from Mexico, Chile, the U.S., but most were from Spain. I earned 14 credits in an educational exchange program through UNR and the University Andes Bellos in Santiago, Chile.
While spending 4 months in Chile, I traveled as far south as Puerto Montt and as far north as Calama, venturing into the Atacama Desert, and staying in the small town of San Pedro de Atacama. I have traveled extensively throughout Mexico, as well as parts of Central and South America.
Spanish grammar is my specialty and I am proficient at conversational Spanish. I am detailed in teaching students how to spell correctly, use exclamation marks, and pronunciation. If you or your student just need a little help getting through a Spanish class at school, I can assist. If you are looking for an experienced Spanish tutor/teacher, look no further. I taught conversational Spanish at Truckee Meadows Community College for two years, which gives me the teaching experience students need from a tutor. I have flexible hours to provide tutoring assistance that can meet your schedule.
I am a baseball junky. I have been involved in baseball all my life in one way or another. I started playing when I was 3 years old with my father. I played Little League, Pony League, and high school baseball. When playing high school ball for Redondo Union High School, I played against George Brett (El Segundo High) and Scott McGregor (also El Segundo High.) I did a lot of pitching, but also played 1st base as well as outfield.
If you need help with grammar, verb conjugation, pronunciation or conversation, look no further - you have found me.
I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish from the University of Reno, Nevada, with some graduate work completed.
I completed one semester (through UNR) at the University Andres Bellos in Saniago, Chile as an exchange student.
I was a conversational Spanish instructor (2008-2010) at Truckee Meadows Comminity College in Reno, Nevada for two and a half years.
I have traveled extensively throughout Mexico, including Baja California, Guadalajara and the surrounding area, the Yucatan Peninsula and twice to the island of Cozumel.
I have also traveled to the countries of Honduras, Guatemala and Belize.
While in Guatemala, I acted as translator for a touring boat.
Baseball and softball have been my passion all my life. I started out playing baseball when I was 3 years old with my father. From there I went on to play Little League, Pony League and then high school ball. I now have been playing league softball for the last 20 years. There's not too much I don't know about the game.
