I hold Massachusetts Department of Education certification in Spanish and I have been a public school teacher for 12 years. I received my Bachelor's degree from the University of Massachusetts Boston, majoring in Russian with a minor in History. I am currently in a Master of Education program, specializing in Curriculum & Instruction. I taught middle school French and Spanish for 10 years and I currently teach high school Spanish. I have taught high school Russian and I have been an MCAS tutor for both English Language Arts and Math. I was also a volunteer teacher of English as a Second Language for adults, and I worked as a teaching assistant in an elementary bilingual program (English and Spanish).

As a public school teacher, I understand the foreign language curriculum and what you need to be successful in class. I also know how to break it down, make it easy to understand and fun to learn. When I work with a student one on one, great things can be accomplished in a short time. You will have a teacher who knows the curriculum, but have my enthusiastic and undivided attention. I enjoy tutoring and have tutored Spanish, French, Russian, writing and math. I look forward to working with you helping you succeed!
