No one said learning Spanish was easy, but I am committed to helping my community learn. If you are in a high school or college curriculum, need to learn Spanish for work, or just want to become bilingual, I will support you! I will help you improve exam scores by teaching you how to build and retain vocabulary, develop conversational abilities, enhance listening and understanding skills, practice reading, writing and correct pronunciation, conjugate verbs and truly understand the subjunctive. My goal is to inspire you to have an epiphany about all the essentials of Spanish grammar, and to have a great time while learning.

Do you need help with Portuguese? Or perhaps you have already mastered Spanish and want to begin learning another romance language? I have an intermediate proficiency in Brazilian Portuguese and can help you learn the fundamentals of this beautiful and enchanting language.

About Me:
I have an MA in Cultural Studies from the University of Washington Bothell with my capstone focus on Spanish/English bilingualism and cultural language exchange through pedagogy and community participation. I earned my BA from The Evergreen State College, focusing on Spanish language and Latin American studies.

During my academic career I have studied Spanish intensively in Mexico, Argentina and Uruguay, as well as Portuguese in Brazil. I have over 6 years of continuous experience successfully teaching and tutoring languages, and I work well with all ages, levels and learning styles.

I am currently full-time staff at the university level and am limited to weekend availability. Please send me an email today!
