I am a native Spanish speaker from the Republic of Panama, and I have been in the education field for over 20 years. I can help you improve your Spanish skills at whatever level you are. In addition, I can proofread Literature essays in Spanish both for grammar and content, help you prepare for your Spanish AP Exam or I can simply help you improve your conversational skills. It all depends on what you need!
I hold a M.A. degree in Spanish and a PhD degree in Latin American literature. I have taught Spanish classes at the middle school, high school and university levels. I have tutored students in private and public schools, as well as adults, college students and professionals seeking to improve their Spanish skills. I am committed to helping my students learn to write, read and converse in Spanish. I am extremely patient because I know how hard the process can be, and because I firmly believe that everyone can learn a second language if the instruction method is the correct one, since not everyone learns the same way.
I am available Monday through Friday between after 5:30 p.m. and on Saturday and Sunday 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. I am also open to teaching small group sessions.
I hold 2 master's degrees and a PhD degree in Spanish.
