I have been teaching at the secondary and undergraduate levels for 17 years. As a teacher of Spanish, I have not only an excellent command of the Spanish language, but also a great deal of cultural knowledge. I lived in Chile in South America for 18 years and in Spain for four. I have traveled throughout Latin America and Spain and consequently I make my classes come alive with real life experiences. I believe that all language classes should include as much authentic material as possible so that students may relate to the culture, not just the language. This helps to motivate a student to learn and connect with another culture, something that is very important in today's world.
My BA is in Spanish and French, my MA is in Teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language from New York University and my doctoral studies are in the area of International Education. While living in Chile, I tutored secondary and elementary level students and taught undergraduate courses at a private university.
My teaching style is communicative. Though I place emphasis on the ability to communicate ideas, I also stress grammar and vocabulary. All the skills (reading, writing, speaking, listening) are fundamental to becoming proficient in a second language. My classes focus on mastering all skills and the methods are meaningful and relevant to the age of the student I tutor.
I am a certified college consultant and a Professional Member of IECA. I have over fifteen years of experience in the field and have successfully guided many students towards undergraduate and graduate study in the US and Canada. I assist students with their college essays, personal statements and supplements. I also assist with the selection of colleges and academic programs. My work frequently includes interview coaching and resume writing. As a college consultant, I am well informed about academic programs and college trends and spend a good deal of my year visiting college campuses.
