I am a skilled Spanish and language teacher and translator, with over 20 years of cumulative experience. I have worked in various educational settings, from a K-12 teacher of Spanish, Reading, and English as a Second Language, to a literacy consultant for adult learners and post high-school students. I have worked one-on-one with special needs children with various learning disabilities, as well as gifted students and English language learners. I can tutor in almost any subject, but my specialties are languages and literacy/reading and writing. I have extensive training in literacy intervention and can help identify and remediate specific literacy needs ranging from fluency to over-all comprehension issues. I can help your student develop better study skills based on his/her specific needs or issues. Because I am a writer, I can also help your student improve writing skills.

I am professional, yet very caring and compassionate. I will work with you and your child to identify their specific needs in a free pre-tutoring phone interview.

I love children, having nearly-raised three of my own (20, 18, 16). I have also worked as an associate pastor of women's and children's ministries, over-seeing and coordinating programs and responding to women's and children's needs within the congregation.
