I am a native Colombian who was a teacher, lawyer and judge in Colombia. I have been in the US since 1993 and have a Masters degree and CAGs from UMASS Amherst. I was an elementary teacher in Holyoke for 20 years and a tutor for the Mass Migrant program for 5 years.
I am interested in tutoring any level of Spanish, and elementary students. As I have had to learn English as a second language, and have worked with many English learners, I realize the difficulty in learning languages. This and my ELL training give me the tools necessary to help students in their learning process of either language. Having had all my elementary, high school and undergraduate work was done in Colombia, South America my Spanish background and knowledge is intense.
