I believe that mastering a foreign language can be one of the most rewarding experiences of a person's life (whether student, professional, or just the interested individual). It opens you up to a new culture and a new way of thinking, allowing you to really become a part of what is rapidly becoming a more and more global society.
I do not believe that studying a foreign language is as difficult as it is often made out to be and I hope to share an environment of positivity and encouragement with my students.
I have experience tutoring both Spanish and English here in New York and in Madrid, Spain, where I earned my Master's degree from NYU in Spanish Language & Culture. I've had success with all ages of students - from preparing for college classes to getting middle and high school students ready for their SAT II tests here in the USA or the Cambridge English tests in Europe.
I like to involve students with a cultural immersion in language - particularly through art, literature and music as I think a visual and auditory experience helps to efficiently teach Spanish (or another language) to any type of learner. I am also personally fascinated by grammar and think that I do a good job breaking down barriers where students often get confused.
Besides holding undergraduate and graduate degrees in Spanish and Art History, I currently do translation work for major publications and hope to pursue a doctorate degree in the near future.
I would be more than happy to further discuss an individualized plan of study for anyone searching for a Spanish tutor. Gracias!
