ACT English

I studied English as a second language starting in elementary school. I have a master's degree and completed all my college work using English. I have worked as a volunteer ESL instructor through the Pikes Peak Library District, focusing on Spanish speakers learning English.

English

Grammar

As a language teacher and tutor for over 10 years, I am very knowledgeable of the rules of grammar and their proper usage in English and Spanish. I have experience teaching grammar through examples as well as the contrast of exceptions.

SAT Reading

I have had extensive experience reading textbooks and instructional manuals during my university training and jobs as a software engineer. I enjoy reading both fiction and non-fiction. All of these have given me the opportunity to practice summarizing and abstracting key ideas in the material.

Spanish

I have tutored small groups and individuals for over 10 years.
I worked for the Foreign Language Center as Spanish tutor and interpreter for 3 years before starting my own service.
I taught Spanish at a local high school.
I have tutored beginners, intermediate and advanced students at the East Library in Colorado Springs.

TOEFL

As a native of Panama, where I completed high school and 1 year of college, I was required to take the TOEFL test before coming to the US. I passed with high marks. I was accepted as an exchange student for one year of high school in Waterloo, IA. After moving to the US permanently, I completed a BS in Computer Science at the University of Southern Mississippi and later an MA in Computer Resource Management at Webster University.

Vocabulary

I have studied English for over 45 years as it is my second language. I work as an interpreter and teacher and over the years I have received additional training in teaching as a volunteer ESL tutor. As an interpreter I constantly practice legal, medical and education vocabulary in addition to common, everyday words. I am also an avid reader.

Writing

I worked for 20 years as a software engineer and had to prepare many reports, training manuals, test plans and requirements documents. These were all technical documents that required accuracy and clarity. As a translator (English <-> Spanish) I have more recently worked on documents for various private and non-profit organizations, hospitals and schools.
