I love to learn and am very enthusiastic about the idea of teaching others what I know!
As a child of Latin
American immigrants from Cuba and Ecuador I grew up in a bilingual world that allowed me to learn both Spanish
simultaneously. By the time I was 18 I had mastered writing
of Spanish and decided to continue developing my linguistic skills in college where I minored in Spanish and French
and majored in Cultural Anthropology
. By the time I graduated I had traveled abroad to both Spain, France and Ecuador, South America where I had both studied and worked as a researcher. After earning my BA in Anthropology, I went on to work as an TEFL instructor in Europe (France and Germany). I had initially gone to Paris, France to be an Au Pair while spending a Semester at the Sorbonne University and simultaneously earned a Certification to teach English as a Foreign language
through WICE Institute, an Adult Education program sponsored through Rutgers State University.
Since then, I have worked as an interpreter and Spanish teacher in the public school system of Charlotte, NC, the private Waldorf school system in Arbor, MI as well as in Pittsburgh, PA. I have most recently worked through a private foreign language
institute in Pittsburgh, PA and as a tutor for the home schooling community.
I offer Spanish, French and English as a foreign language. I offer both group and individual classes and I work with both adults and children as young as 2 years old.
I have experience tutoring foreign students preparing for the TOEFL
exam and can help with the most common challenges encountered by non-native speakers.
I can provide references upon request.
My rates are reasonable and I always give my students 100% of my time and effort.
I have a 24-hour cancellation policy but am flexible and offer the option to a make-up a missed class.
I can meet with my students in their homes, or in local cafes or libraries. My business
is conveniently located in the East Downtown community of Houston, TX.
I look forward to hearing from you and to help you to be successful and reach level of fluency you are seeking or to get the best possible score on the TOEFL exam!
