My name is Danielle and I hold a Bachelor's degree in Spanish Studies from the University of Delaware. I have traveled extensively throughout Latin America, living for longer periods of time in both Panama and Spain. I have a passion for the Spanish language and enjoy sharing my knowledge through tutoring. Through my teaching experience I have found that more individualized tutoring is highly effective and I enjoy a personalized environment. Because I too learned Spanish as my second language, I understand the frustration that comes with learning a new language. However, this may be my most valuable asset because I have figured out all the tricks and exceptions and can explain them more easily to help make the learning process more enjoyable.
Learning from someone that has been through the exact same experience is invaluable and that is why I believe my tutoring sessions will help directly guide the student. My teaching method focuses on verbal expression and grammatical perfection. I believe that when a student hears his or herself actually say the words out loud, it produces a confidence that written expression cannot provide. While grammar and vocabulary skills are definitely emphasized, it is extremely important that the student feel comfortable pronouncing the words to fully grasp the language.
