***I am currently able to help students study for their Spanish final exams***

I recently graduated with a master's degree in Latin American Studies from UC Berkeley. If you are interested in learning Spanish, I can help you accomplish your goals! I have studied abroad at the Autonomous University of Yucatán (UADY) in Mexico (2004), volunteered in Puebla, Mexico (2006), lived three months in Puebla (2011 & 2012), and traveled through several other states. Learning a language can open the door to so many amazing encounters and opportunities. I tutor adults as well as younger AP Spanish students (my AP Spanish 4 Exam score in 2002 was a 5).

My love for language learning was initially spurred by my early intercultural experiences as a Nisei (second-generation Japanese American). I graduated from the Asahi Gakuen Japanese school in Orange County (9 years of Saturday school) and am fluent in Japanese, although I'm not tutoring Japanese this year.

I am always striving to improve as a teacher. Looking forward to meeting you soon!

Excellent Spanish tutor. Yuko really helped our son improve his grade in Spanish III. He is also a much better speaker of the Spanish language. Yuko is fun, reliable, patient and very prepared for every lesson. We highly recommend her. ...
