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 privately. I also earned my teaching credential in 2009. I have experience tutoring students in all areas (reading
, conversation, and vocabulary
development). With new students I typically start by assessing the areas in which they struggle most in order to provide specialized attention where it is needed most. I typically do this by both asking the student directly and then working on several assignments together. 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!
I have also tutored English
as a Second Language for over ten years. I started tutoring ESL
in 2004 at UCLA in the English Conversation Program. I ran small classes of about eight people and worked on improving conversation skills, grammar
, vocabulary, and even slang. While I was earning my teaching credential, I also taught an ESL class at a local high school. It is always rewarding to watch students’ confidence grow throughout the semester as their English improves and this is why I love tutoring English as a Second Language

Soy tutora de inglés desde hace más de diez años. Empecé en el 2004 como tutora en el Programa de Conversación en inglés en UCLA. Enseñé clases pequeñas de ocho personas para mejorar la conversación, la gramática, el vocabulario, la escritura, la lectura, y hasta la jerga. Además, mientras estudiaba para ser maestra, enseñé una clase de ESL en la secundaria. Para mí, lo más gratificante de este trabajo es ver el aumento de confianza de mis estudiantes mientras van mejorando su inglés, y por eso ¡me encanta hacer tutoría en inglés! Por favor póngase en contacto conmigo si quiere mejorar su inglés.
