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
, 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!
