I have experienced language-learning through both immersion and classroom instruction. I truly believe in the beauty of languages and the way they can bridge people from different backgrounds. I have tutored both professionals and high school students in languages, and I have learned that one of the most important elements of tutoring is learning about each individual student and catering to his/her specific needs. I enjoy languages and want to spread that joy for everyone.
I have a strong appreciation for language learning and have taken a number of classes at the University of Chicago on language variation and instruction. I have worked in ESL classrooms and an have an understanding of different student needs. I truly believe that language is deeply connected to culture, and language instruction should reflect that connection to offer a deeper and richer experience. English learning in the United State has the advantage of immersion opportunity that must be coupled with individualized attention.
I have an Advanced Foreign Language Competency certificate from the University of Chicago in Spanish language. I have lived and worked in the Dominican Republic and Peru for more than 10 months, and I have traveled to Spain. My bachelor's thesis was an anthropological study conducted in Peru exclusively in Spanish. I have also worked at a foundation for one year in Costa Rica, using professional Spanish on a daily basis. I am extremely familiar with Spanish grammar and structure the way they are taught in schools as well as regional variations and word choices the way they change throughout the Spanish-speaking world.
