My foreign language teaching background includes French with elementary and middle school students, and Spanish 1 and 2 and 4 with high school and college students. I am presently teaching middle school Spanish.
I have worked individually with adults, teaching French and Spanish to Americans and Japanese here for work. I have been teaching English to a Spanish speaking pharmacist who just achieved 26 on her oral TOEFL exam, as well as passing all of the other sections.
I enjoy tutoring because it allows my students to progress at the pace that works best for their learning style. Students can expect a warm and supportive learning environment. I pride myself on being able to identify an individual's strengths, and using them as encouraging starting points to target areas to work on. I will use your materials, review specific concerns, and augment each session with conversation practice. Additionally, I can recommend websites and materials that you may find helpful. Depending on the age of student, we can also review study skills.
About me: I love traveling and learning about foreign cultures. I've traveled extensively to French and Spanish speaking countries, most recently to Costa Rica and Ecuador. I also have a background in nature photography.
I'd like to meet at local libraries.
