I am a former attorney with an undergraduate degree in Spanish Education from the University of Illinois. I am available to teach elementary, junior high, high school students and college students in Spanish, as well as reading, vocabulary, English and other related subjects. I love to speak Spanish and love to work with children and new students. I have tutored high school and college aged friends for years in Spanish. One college student called me recently to tell me she received an "A" in College Spanish 3 after I tutored her. I am extremely patient and innovative in my teaching style and flexible with my work hours. As the mom of a young adult with Asperger's Syndrome, I am savvy about autism spectrum disorders, ADD and ADHD, and executive function issues--I have seen it all. I would be happy to tutor your student or help you learn a new language. I can get your student to learn!

I have a teaching degree from the University of Illinois and a J.D. Degree from Suffolk University Law School in Boston, MA. That alone might not qualify me as an autism expert, yet I am. I am the mom of a young adult on the autism spectrum. I have read dozens of books on the subject of autism, have attended numerous conferences and symposia on autism, including some of Rush University's conferences. I have been a parent member and past president of the APS Board of the North Suburban Special Education District and parent liaison for Glenbrook North High School's Special Education Parent Group. In my capacity for both organizations, I arranged and attended monthly conferences on the topic of autism and other disabilities. Currently, I present disability awareness programs to area schools on the North Shore. I have developed strategies for my son which would be very effective with other young people on the spectrum. I know how to teach these children.


With a background in law and teaching, I am an excellent writer and am available to tutor in Grammar, Reading, Vocabulary, etc.


WIth a background in law and teaching, I am available to tutor in Reading, Grammar, Vocabulary, Spelling, etc.


I have a degree in Spanish and am available to teach on the elementary school and high school level.


I hold an undergraduate teaching degree in Spanish on the secondary school level. I also hold a Juris Doctor Degree from Suffolk University Law School, Boston, MA. In law school, I had to present a detailed argument in Moot Court. As a lawyer of fifteen years, I drafted many documents and presented arguments in court. I have written and presented speeches in front of hundreds of people, including the staff and parents of the Northern Suburban Special Education District. My training in college, then law school, in legal writing and oral presentation, was rigorous. I can teach students to write and speak concisely and with clarity and vision. I believe that is what is needed to present a successful oral argument.
