My name is Yvonne and since I was a student in high school myself, I have been giving tutoring lessons in various foreign languages.
I graduated from "Justus-Liebig-University", Germany, with a Bachelor and Master of Education with specialization in English
, and I currently hold a valid California teaching credential for English and Spanish for middle/high school.
During my studies, I spent one year in Spain at the "University of Granada" where I enhanced my language
skills to near-native levels and raised my cultural awareness. In the last 5 years, I worked as a teacher of English and Spanish at a middle/high school and taught Spanish to beginners, intermediate and advanced students in grades 5-12.
I am a very organized, goal-oriented and reliable person and I will make you focus on the specific language topics at hand that you need to understand, practice and master the most urgently, so that you can notice a quick improvement in your test scores and grades, and ultimately also have more fun at learning the Spanish language. At the same time, I will also design my lesson to the learner type you are and get you motivated.
In order to make tutoring the most effective, I recommend tutoring on a regular basis and more hours shortly before upcoming tests.
I try to be flexible with the times for your lessons and I only have a 2-hour cancellation policy.
To ensure that we can work in a quiet study space and work well, I also offer lessons at my place if it is specifically requested by you.
Don't hesitate to schedule your tutoring lesson right away!
