I have taught Spanish at the college and high school level. I have over 25 years of experience. I taught AP Spanish language and literature with excellent scores on the exam. I have also prepped students for the National Spanish exam with great success. My tutoring experience ranges from elementary students to adults.

I have traveled to many Spanish-speaking countries to study the language and culture (Mexico, Spain, Cuba, Puerto Rico, Venezuela, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Nicaragua)

I also worked at an intelligence agency as a linguist and analyst.

My method of tutoring is to tailor the lessons to the specific needs of the student. I try to make it both fun and productive. I use many different materials including the Internet, film, television, articles, books, and hands-on materials.

I truly enjoy tutoring and would welcome the opportunity to do more of it.

Approved subjects

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.
