I am a retired Spanish Teacher after teaching for 25 years in Florida. I have taught native Spanish speakers and students taking Spanish as a second language. I have worked with students from Kindergarten to twelve grade, also adults who I have taught privately.

I was educated in Venezuela at The Central University, upon arriving to the States many years ago I got a Bachelor´s degree in Foreign Language Education - Spanish at University of Central Florida. I got my Master´s in Multicultural Education at Florida State University.

At this point of my life I want to continue teaching without the burden of the administrative paper work. In the past two years, since I retired I have enjoying tutoring and I want to continue doing this work. The success I see in my students is my success. Each student is different and need a differentiated approach. That is my philosophy.

Thank you very much for you feed back. It meant a lot to me. The truth is that you are a pleasure to teach. You are a dedicated student. You are willing to work hard and you show it. I notice your progress in every meeting and there is nothing more stimulating for a teacher than to see the progress of her student. Let´s continue working hard.

"Very good teacher"
