I really enjoy sharing my knowledge of Foreign Languages and History.
I graduated Cum Laude from UMASS Lowell with a double major in History/Spanish. Throughout my time as an undergrad, I helped students with subjects ranging from College Writing, History and Spanish. After I finished my bachelor’s, I worked for a couple of years as a Spanish teacher. I later moved to Spain to study for my Master’s at Saint Louis University Madrid, where I graduated with distinction. I currently have my preliminary teacher’s certification to teach Spanish and History in Massachusetts.
I believe that my unique life and academic experiences make me an excellent Spanish tutor. I learned Spanish as a second language, so I understand the difficulties that English speakers have when learning the language, and some simple things that can help them. I also have had the opportunity to speak with Spanish speakers throughout the Spanish Speaking World, so if you are planning a trip to a particular place, I can cater to your needs. I feel that my ability to figure out what a student’s weakness is one my best attributes as a tutor.
I have worked as an ESL teacher at nights, and have a lot of experience dealing with English speakers who are Spanish speakers. I also have a great interest in other languages, and I believe that knowing a little bit about someone's own language can help me tutor someone with English. I have studied several languages, so I understand the effort it takes to learn another language, and I have lived as a foreigner in another country, so I can really relate to the difficulties of living in another country.
I have always have had a love for history and I am able to make real world connections that can help someone understand Historical events in context. I really enjoy history and I bring that enthusiasm to my tutoring.
While living in Europe, I had the opportunity to study Portuguese, and had exposure to both European and Brazilian Portuguese. I am more familiar with Brazilian Portuguese, but I am familiar with European Portuguese too. I also have a good understanding of the hurdles that a Spanish or English speaker will encounter while learning Portuguese.
Due to my family background, I always have had a great interest in Italian language and culture. Using my knowledge of Italian, I was able to find my grandparent’s family in Italy and visit their town and surviving cousins. I can help someone acquire the skills and resources so they can begin their Italian language learning adventure.
