…While I was growing up, in Mexico, I had the opportunity of being an exchange student in England, Spain, and the United States, from this experiences I realized the importance of learning a foreign language and a country’s culture.
I hold a Master's in Communications with a major in advertising and broadcasting from Anahuac University, Mexico. I worked as a copy writer, voice-over talent, creating content and directing commercials and demos for Spanish broadcasting networks and corporate companies.
I started tutoring students and teaching during the years I lived in Mexico. I love to teach.
In 1994, I had the opportunity to pursue a degree in business entertainment in the city of Philadelphia where I started working at the French Communication Institute, teaching Spanish as a SL, and continue with one on one tutoring.
I have experience with all different age groups and expectations. Whether you need to achieve conversational fluency, or are currently looking for some extra help, traveling or just simply in need to improve Spanish for your business, I can help you. My background in communications, being a native speaker, and extensive traveling experiences have given me an ample knowledge of the Spanish language.
I tailor classes according to your needs, covering: grammar, pronunciation, conversation, vocabulary and cultural diversity.
Hasta pronto y buena suerte! Lourdes

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.

Public Speaking

I would like to offer tutoring in Spanish Public Speaking because: I have a degree in Communication Science, part of the curriculum was public speaking; I am licensed by the Mexican Academy of Broadcasters, allowing me to broadcast in Spanish in either Radio or TV; I graduated from the school of Radio Broadcasters in Mexico; I worked previously as Spanish voice-over talent, independently, and for the Televisa-Radiopolis Network in Mexico City.

Spanish

Conversation, vocabulary, pronunciation, grammar and cultural diversity are integrated in the lessons to accommodate student's specific needs.

TOEFL

I have taken the TOEFL examination previously, as it is a requirement for foreign students prior living in the United States.
