I come from a bilingual, bicultural family and completed my bachelor's degree in England. I speak Spanish fluently and lived and worked in Mexico for over 2 years. I have experience as a translator, transcriber, proofreader, and editor. I love traveling and learning about new places and cultures.
I have worked as a Spanish tutor for high school students. I have also offered tutoring services on an unofficial level to family members and college students who do not speak English as a first language. I love helping others understand languages and learning about their cultural and linguistic background is an added bonus. I know firsthand what it's like to have a teacher who doesn't understand why students cannot grasp certain concepts, so I give twice the effort to make sure that the person I am tutoring understands, without making him/her feel uncomfortable or inadequate.
My tutoring style is very practical. I use real-life situations and make comparisons with a student's native tongue when he or she has difficulty grasping a grammatical concept.
