I specialize in tutoring Spanish from introductory through college level. I have seven years of experience tutoring children (as young as preschool) and adults. I have taught both Spanish individual and group classes in a variety of locations throughout NY and CT. My native language is English, however I have lived and studied in Spain and Ecuador. I am passionate about all things Spanish (language, music, dance, food, culture).

My methods are successful and holistic, encompassing all learning styles, and cover the six components of literacy. As a successful Spanish tutor, my students grades improve one or two levels. My goal is to bring my skills and enthusiasm for Spanish language to my students and thereby improve and increase my students' ability to communicate effectively in Spanish. Contact me today to schedule your sessions.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught grades 3 through 6 in a private school over the last 12 years and I have also enjoyed substitute teaching for grades preschool through grade 2. In addition, I have taught ESL and Spanish for preschoolers through grade 12. I studied Elementary Education and Spanish at WCSU, where I graduated cum laude. I love children and believe that every child can learn given the correct opportunity and environment.


I have been a private ESL teacher for the past 5 years and I am also a substitute elementary, middle and high school teacher. I specialize in the acquisition of second language skills, oral communication, reading comprehension and effective writing.


I have taught English as a Second Language and English for Speakers of Other Languages in Fairfield County, CT and throughout Putnam County in New York over the past six years. Students will gain listening, reading and writing and speaking skills, while improving vocabulary, pronunciation and grammar. My instruction utilizes of a variety of techniques and materials as needed for achieving English literacy skills. At WCSU I specialized in Second Language Acquisition and advanced grammar.


While studying at WCSU I absolutely loved taking course in Global Studies and World Geography and I received an A for the course.


Learning the Hebrew language can be very challenging, however with a good instructor, a bit of patience and lots of practice you can be on your way to reading, speaking, writing and understanding Hebrew. An entire new alphabet of consonants needs to be learned as well as a series of dots and dashes which represent the vowels. Keep in mind that Hebrew is written and read from right to left. The ability to read Hebrew is a gift that will bring you much pleasure and will also help to strengthen your ability to learn other foreign languages. I have 20 years experience teaching Hebrew with much success. Call me to schedule your lessons.


I am an experienced reading teacher. I have helped many students improve their strategies, comprehension and grades.


I recently graduated cum laude from WCSU, where I studied, bilingual education, Spanish, advanced grammar and foreign language acquisition. At home I speak Spanish with my family. Over the past 7 years I have successfully tutored Spanish to middle, high school and college students, as well as to adults who wish to improve their career opportunities. I am passionate about communicating in Spanish. My enthusiasm is contagious and my students have fun while learning to read, write and speak in Spanish. Besides the traditional listen and repeat exercises, I use dialogues, games, songs and videos when I teach. In addition, I have provided Spanish Immersion childcare for the past 3 years to families with children age newborn to age six.

I have lived and studied in Spain, and I recently returned from an extended winter trip to Ecuador, living and traveling with my husband and his Ecuadorian family.
