I am an experienced Spanish tutor, native speaker, levels I-V. I have taught and tutored middle, high school & college students attending both public and independent schools in the area, as well as home-schooled students. Therefore, I am familiar with various textbooks and curriculum. I have tutored college students attending Towson University and Loyola University. I have worked with students that have language learning difficulties, and use a multi-sensory approach to learning whenever needed. I also use a variety of resources and techniques (including visual, audio, etc.) to help students. I attended an All Kinds Of Minds workshop (incorporates brain research into teaching) and became certified by the College Board to teach AP Spanish Language. I am currently working on a Master of Arts in Teaching. I enjoy using technology in instruction whenever it enhances learning; I often use an iPad to access resources that may not be accessible to the student otherwise.

I also welcome home-schooled students since I am most flexible on weekdays during the day! Individual or small-group lessons can be arranged; special rate for small groups!

Very happy with the experience. — Selma was very patient and thorough with my son. He really liked her a lot. We used her to help study for his Spanish mid-term exam. His grade on is mid-term exam was better than any of his test grades over the semester. That is definitely a testament to Selma's work with him. We will use her again! Very punctual and flexible. ...
