I am a certified teacher in Spanish (K-12) and English (6-12). I have 11 years of experience in teaching Spanish. I am very proficient in grammar, history, conversation, (pronunciation, writing, reading) and projects. I love the language, history, and culture. I can tutor using a variety of methods. I have been successful with my students via music, word association, flash cards, kinesthetics, cognates, and/or cartoons. I have taught two years of this subject, it is my passion. I can help prepare students write papers for any subject or give a speech.
