I currently work at Mercy Hospital as a counselor. Previously, I did my undergraduate work in Speech Language Pathology and Spanish. For four years, I taught English as a Foreign Language and volunteered to tutor non-native English speakers at the Presentation Lantern Center in Dubuque, Iowa. I love languages, especially Spanish. After living in a Mexican neighborhood in Chicago, IL for one year, studying abroad in Oviedo, Spain for five months, working in Madrid, Spain for two years, and studying translation in Madrid for six months, I have reached a high level of competency in Spanish. Due to my training in Speech Pathology, I also love to work with foreign language speakers' pronunciation in English.
From all of this experience, I would be able to tutor someone who wants to improve their English or Spanish in terms of grammar, pronunciation, conversation, reading, and comprehension. My teaching style is very interactive, since using the language correctly is the primary goal.
