I learned Spanish, my second language, by living with a Spanish family in Valencia, Spain, and by studying at the University of Valencia for two semesters. I taught high school Spanish and English for four years, and I was a bilingual secretary for the Latin American division of a large global company. When would you like me to start helping you improve your progress in Spanish? I am ready when you are!
ENGLISH AS SECOND LANGUAGE (ESL):
The area of specialization for my Master's of Education is ESL instruction, and I already have had tremendous success with several Asian ESL students. I find this work to be especially rewarding, and I have great respect for ESL students--having learned a second language myself while living in the country of the target language. This is very challenging for ELLs, and I am highly motivated to ensure their success!
I am widely recognized for my writing skills and my command for grammar and punctuation. I have supported students struggling with college level writing, and I spent several years as "ghost writer" for a local corporation.
GENERAL K-6 COURSEWORK--READING, MATH, STUDY SKILLS:
I have tutored many K-6 children with overwhelming success. This includes instructing at a local "learning center." Most frequently the challenge is phonics and/or reading comprehension and improving written grammar and sentence formation. I also am qualified to support K-6 students who are struggling in math.
