I have been teaching Middle / High School & College Level Spanish for more than 30 years and recently retired to take care of my three grandchildren. I missed teaching Spanish so much that I began to tutor locally.

I've worked in both private and public schools; at The Berlitz School of Languages and at The Mirman School for the Gifted as Chair of the Dept., and was also the Southern California Coordinator for The National Spanish Exams. Before that, I worked in Viewpoint & Flintridge Prep.

I can help with homework preparation, quiz and exam prep (AP, SAT), and oral and written assignments. My explanations are clear and comparisons to English make grammar concepts more understandable. My students excel and look forward to their tutoring sessions as much as I do.

Language studies tell us that students need to feel at ease while learning a second language. Acquisition is faster when the student is relaxed & enjoying themselves. Breaking concepts into smaller, more manageable ones allows my students to experience success at every turn and build their confidence. During the lesson, I use their text, my workbooks, language games, study skill techniques, and engaging computer sites which enable my students to keep practicing & expanding their developing skills even when I am not there.

I look forward to meeting you, and working with your son or daughter. You can look forward to a happier, more confident child, and of course, higher grades in Spanish class from the very first lesson!
