My name is Courtney and I grew up in the suburbs of Chicago for almost my entire life. After attending The University of Iowa and majoring in Secondary Spanish Education I received a job at a middle school teaching Spanish to both native and non-native speakers. I love what I do, and have been at my job for 6+ years.
My specialty is grammar - if you need help conjugating a verb or understanding a grammar concept I'm your girl! Typically I use guided notes to introduce a lesson and then create a number of activities for practice. Of course, I'll be able to help with any facet of the language. I incorporate many interesting and unique strategies for vocabulary mastery as well as help with speaking, writing, reading, listening, and culture components of the language.
Every year I go to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, where my Spanish-speaking skills come in handy! I love to be immersed in the Mexican culture and would love to opportunity to help you in any way!
