I love the Spanish language and its various cultures and feel the same way about teaching it. I have been a Spanish instructor at the college level for twenty years, and currently I teach Spanish at Purdue University Calumet. I have also tutored extensively at the high school and college level. I have a tremendous amount of enthusiasm when I teach, and I really like the one on one interaction with students and being able to help them. I am not a native Spanish speaker, so I feel that I am very familiar with the problems that students face while learning the language.

Spanish

I teach Spanish from a non native Spanish speaker's perspective. I started learning Spanish as an adult so I believe I am very familiar with the problems English speakers face while trying to learn it. I teach Spanish tense by tense(past, present, future, etc) and break down each grammatical area(you name it, we'll go over it, just ask) so that a non native speaker can understand it, and put sentences together. I am very enthusiastic and positive about Spanish and teaching and I always try to transfer my enthusiasm to the students. El español es un idioma tremendo, ¡apréndalo!
