I have studied Spanish since the second grade and followed it all the way through college, earning a Bachelor of Arts degree with a Spanish major. The elementary school I attended was part of that same college system and was designed as a program for student teachers in their quest for a teaching degree. Since all of my teachers were full-fledged professors at the college, I received a very high degree of education. My class teacher spoke fluent Spanish so many of our lessons were performed in Spanish. I was inundated with the language and I became hooked on it. Out of my entire elementary school class, I was the only one to pursue language through the college level. Not only did I become infatuated with the language, but I also became infatuated with the culture, which opened my eyes to other cultures and peoples around the world.

Having dissected the Spanish language through so many years of study, I have become quite proficient in English grammar as well. This has also enabled me to expand my vocabulary and I feel quite confident in being able to pass this knowledge along to others. Also, my personal interest lies in history, especially American history and I have spent a lifetime studying it.

My main focus in tutoring is the student. What exactly are you hoping to accomplish? What is your level of education in the area in which you choose to be tutored? What are your strengths and weaknesses? I would then craft a program that would best suit the student's needs and provide as much education as possible to assist him or her in every way.

Spanish

I have studied Spanish from the age of 7 all the way through college, where I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree, majoring in Spanish. I am proficient in Spanish grammar, vocabulary and have an excellent accent. I have a great affinity for the language and would love to be able to pass that on to others.
