I am an experienced teacher of English and ESL as well as a Spanish tutor. My love of language and my experiences as both teacher and student give me insight into the process of learning. I have a Masters of Education in Curriculum and Instruction and bilingual certification at the elementary level. I've taught and tutored English from kindergarten to junior college level, and directed an English language school in Spain. I've coached TOEFL preparation, composition and reading comprehension. If you are looking for a tutor who thinks that learning should be fun as well as challenging, I'd like to work with you. I am an experienced teacher of English and ESL as well as a Spanish tutor.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
In addition to teaching at the elementary and community college levels, I have tutored children through adults in all aspects of English--from speaking to listening, grammar and structure to composition, and reading to test-taking.
As an ESL professional, I directed an English Language School in Seville, Spain and taught all levels and subject areas for university students at the University of Texas, Austin. I designed and implemented a specialized ESL curriculum for nursing professionals at a Denver hospital. In addition, I taught international students and immigrants at Arapahoe Community College.
I understand the challenges that a language learner can face, and I always strive to create lessons that are fun, engaging, and productive. It's exciting to help students succeed!
