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!

She focused in on my daughter's strengths and weaknesses and gave her supplementary work in her weak areas. She was on time for each session and provided good feedback via email. She responded very promptly to all my inquiries. I have no hesitation in recommending her. ...
