I am a certified Spanish, ASL and ESL elementary and secondary teacher and have over 20 years of teaching experience from elementary to college levels. I currently teach Spanish and ESL at a community college and teach Spanish at a junior high school. I have lived in Mexico, Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic. I have also lived in the Philippines, China, Taiwan and Haiti. Having lived overseas for a period of 12 years has helped me to relate to the unique needs that second language learners have, and I use what I have learned while living overseas. I always try to teach Spanish and ASL without using English, and have achieved great success with my students employing this method.

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 have passed the ESL supplemental test for teachers here in Texas. I am also certified as a Pre-K thru 6th grade Bilingual/ESL teacher. In addition to this, I have a Master's degree in bilingual education and 18 graduate hours in Spanish as well.

I have around 10 years of teaching ESL to bilingual elementary students as well.
