I am a native Spanish speaker, fully bilingual in Spanish and English. I am certified to teach Spanish and French, as well as K-8th grade.
I grew up in Spain, where I attended a British school, and received an excellent education. My mother is Spanish and my father was American. I came to Michigan to go to college. I have been a Spanish teacher since 2000. I am also fluent in French and have a strong understanding of Italian. I have tutored privately, from children to teenagers to adults, for many years. I have helped many high school students significantly raise their grades in Spanish and French. I can also tutor in English and ESL, as well as preparing for SAT's and ACT's.
I have various methods of tutoring depending on the needs of my students. I believe in speaking the language, in using flashcards, and working with worksheets. I teach the necessary grammar lessons, following the student textbook, and finding supplemental material from other textbooks.
I have a wonderful rapport with students, and teaching a foreign language is my passion, which I convey to my students, and get them excited about the language.
