¡Hola! My name is Alison. As a child, I attended a Spanish Immersion elementary school. This experience instilled in me what has become a lifelong passion for the Spanish language and the various cultures with which it is associated. I recently graduated with my M.A. in Spanish and Latin American Literature, and have taught Spanish at the university level. I tutor students of all ages and specialize in tutoring at the beginning and intermediate levels in Spanish grammar as well as conversation. I am also willing to communicate with the student's teacher regarding tutoring material if needed. I also tutor in American Literature, as well as Spanish/Latin American Literature.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Literature

I studied American Literature in high school and college. I have an extensive background in Spanish and Latin American Literature and just recently earned my M.A. in Spanish and Latin American Literature.

Spanish

I began learning Spanish as a child in a Spanish Immersion elementary school, where all subjects (aside from English) were taught exclusively in Spanish. I also learned to read in Spanish before I learned to read in English. I continued studying Spanish throughout junior high and high school, and earned my B.A. in Spanish and I just recently earned my M.A. in Spanish and Latin American Literature. I am bilingual in English and Spanish, and have an extensive knowledge of the language, literature, and the cultures that are associated with the language.

Excellent Tutor — Alison is an excellent tutor. I am still at a beginning level, but I am just about to start to move up to an intermediate level. Thus I can speak Spanish but not really. At times my conversation is very, very slow. I make a lot of mistakes. Alison was very patient with this. She listened well and made corrections and suggestions when appropriate.
