My name is Bonnie and I have been a Spanish tutor since 2002. I also earned my master's degree in Spanish from CSUF in May of 2012. My first experience tutoring was as a volunteer in the Learning Assistance Program at Saddleback College. I tutored there for about two years and since then I have tutored intermittently while in school. I have experience tutoring students in all areas (reading, writing, conversation, and vocabulary development). With new students I typically start by asking about the areas in which they struggle most. Then, I like to go over an assignment with the student so that I can assess any additional areas of difficulty. For homework assignments and writing activities, I encourage students to write about topics that interest them. This tends to be helpful, especially since for many students Spanish is a subject that is both boring and anxiety-producing. This allows them to relax and have a little fun with the language while at the same time improving their skill level. With time and practice I am confident that the students who choose me as a tutor will greatly improve their language skills in all areas. I look forward to working with you!
