I am a native Spanish speaker, educated both in South America and the U.S. I hold a Master of Arts degree in Spanish and a teaching certificate in ESL.

I have been teaching both Spanish and English as foreign languages for 15 years to students of all ages, including adults who wanted to enrich their lives, and/or advance their careers.

I have taught in public schools, private schools, private language institutes, universities, corporate settings, students homes, in short: wherever there's a need for language instruction.

My tutoring methods are tailored to the needs of the student, and I am known for adapting my instruction to the specific learning style of my students. My lessons are relevant, engaging, and built upon the concepts already mastered, to reduce anxiety and maximize the learning experience.

Students consistently rate my teaching as effective and organized, and they see me as knowledgeable, approachable, and willing to help.
It is my hope that we can enter a successful learning adventure together.

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.

ESL/ESOL

I got certified to teach ESL through the College of Preceptors in London, England in 1998. I taught ESL in Uruguay for 8 years and I prepared students to take the University of Cambridge English Proficiency examinations. I also taught English Language in the IB (International Baccalaureate) program, as well as private English lessons to professionals in various fields.

Spanish

Aside from being a native speaker, I am a certified Spanish teacher who has taught all levels from elementary to college. I hold two Masters degrees (one in Spanish and one in Secondary Education), and I have experience teaching students with learning disabilities.
