The Spanish language and the Arts are my life long passions. I have enjoyed an excellent success rate as a teacher on both fields. With over 15 years of experience as an educator, I have taught Students at every level in both fields.
I am a cultured native spanish speaker with extensive experience teaching Spanish as a foreign language. I have taught students whose first language is English, as well as American raised native spanish speakers who seek to improve their grammar, reading and writing skills.
I have ample experience with students at the beginner level and all the way up to AP Spanish students. I am currently a working educator which keeps me in touch with the expectations of the curriculum, as well as current resources and techniques. Specifically for tutoring, I find it vital to begin with a good assessment of the student's current skills. From that point it is possible to support the student to reach his or her goal with a very animated and interactive targeted approach.
In the Arts, I seek to identify the student's purpose and personal connection to the material or project at hand, to support the student in their own defined goals. Students who have been under my instruction have been admitted to prestigious art schools around the country and many have received generous scholarships based on their skills. I have supported students in the preparation of portfolios for college applications to schools such as Massachusetts college of art and design, The Art Institute and Montserrat College of Art.
Finally, one of my greatest strengths as and educator is my ability to easily establish a rapport with students of various ages, which allows a student to feel safe and encouraged to learn.
