I have been teaching Spanish language classes since 1981 and have taught all levels from kindergartners up through college literature classes. Some of my most rewarding teaching experiences have been through tutoring students who were struggling, some of whom were convinced that they just couldn't learn a language. I have been able to convince them otherwise. I believe that a good tutor works very hard to put herself or himself out of a job. My goal is to teach students how to learn so that they don't need a tutor anymore. Some students need just a few sessions to get on the right track. Others need more prolonged support. In all cases I focus on how a student can use his or her strengths as a learner to best advantage and how to develop other skills as well.
