I have been tutoring/teaching for over 4 years. I am primarily an ESL teacher, but have also tutored beginning level Spanish students. I have a TESL certificate and spent two years teaching English in Spain to middle school and high school students as well as adults. My early teaching experience was with preschoolers and I enjoy working with students of all ages. In order to learn and use a language it is important to have the opportunity to hear and use the language in a safe environment. As a teacher and conversation partner, I plan our meetings around your personal goals and provide many opportunities and resources for learning English. Sessions can be focused on tutoring to enhance in class learning, personalized instruction to improve English for work or daily life, and/or conversation practice with a native speaker. I customize and provide the resources and materials. I have a B.A. in Spanish, with a minor in linguistics and I have also studied German and ASL. As a second language learner I understand the challenges that my students face and look forward to helping meet those challenges.
My second B.A. is in Studio Art. My focus was in printmaking and painting. I have taught face painting classes for experienced and non-experienced artists. Art, like writing is a way to communicate or express our ideas and interests. Art is composed of many elements including technical skill, aesthetics, and the development of ideas/content. I am happy to help with any or all of these areas.
