I am a native Spanish speaker who attended school in Latin America until the 8th grade.

In high school, I studied Advanced Spanish Grammar and Composition and went on to advanced Spanish classes in college. In addition, I have taught Spanish at the corporate level utilizing Rosetta Stone software. As a volunteer, I have taught Spanish using music: teaching songs in Spanish is a fun and effective way of learning the language.

Growing up, I always had a love of books that even my parents did not know where it originated. I love to read and I possess a lifelong love of learning in many subjects ranging from Theology, fiction, History, Information Technology, Gastronomy and Photography. As of this writing, I am approved to tutor Spanish, ACT Reading, ACT English, American History, English, GED, Grammar, General Computers, Proofreading, Reading, Spelling, TOEFL, Vocabulary, World History and Writing with WyzAnt.

After graduating in the Top 10% of my class in high school (College Prep program), I went on to receive 3 semester honors at Rutgers University and a cumulative GPA above upwards of a 3.0

I have worked as a professional Spanish translator since 2002. I have experience in many subject areas: from law enforcement and fashion to Information Technology.

I was evaluated by an independent language company. My results were as follows:

Evaluated as "Superior" in Spanish Written Assessment by independent provider Language Testing International.

Evaluated as "Advanced-High" in Spanish Oral/Interpretation Assessment by independent provider Language Testing International.

I incorporate every form of media into my instruction, from YouTube videos to phone applications (DuoLingo is a current favorite). I believe that the more senses are incorporated, the easier it is to learn a new subject. Besides, learning should be fun.

I hold myself to a high standard. For that reason, I often ask for feedback from my students and their parents.

Time is our most valuable commodity. Recently, while watching one of my favorite shows (Shark Tank) a contestant stated "Time is the only investment you can't get back". So true! Accordingly, I have a 24-hour cancellation policy and I offer the opportunity of makeup classes (I also missed a class or two growing up).

To ensure that students have a quiet and comfortable study space in which to work with me, I can rent a tutoring office in midtown Manhattan where I plan to teach private lessons and group classes. However, I am happy to travel to another location if that is more convenient for the student. Also, we can always meet at a local coffee shop.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success in your studies and beyond!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Bible Studies

To begin, I have been reading/studying the Bible for the last 13 years. I have a pretty good library of reference materials in addition to excellent Internet resources.

Secondly, in the last 13 years, I have sat under the teaching of today's premier Bible teachers/scholars: Ravi Zacharias, Francis Chan and John Piper are some of my personal favorites.

Thirdly, I am a staunch defender of Biblical truth. I am often exchanging information with friends regarding biblical issues/controversies, etc. The Bible has been my most favorite subject of discussion and inquiry.

Fourth, in 2004 I went to Israel to participate in the Mt. Carmel School of Ministry two-week course in Bible study, prophecy, ministry and worship.

Finally, it would be an absolute dream come true (and an answer to prayer) to teach a child the truths that I have gleaned in 13 years of Bible study.

Sociology

In high school, I just knew that I wanted to graduate from college. I had no clue as to what I would study and therefore bounced around pursuing a variety of interests. However, it wasn't until I took my first sociology class that my attention and my focus was captured. Through sociology, I was able to learn more about the world around me and society at large. As a result, I graduated college with a bachelor's degree in sociology.
