My name is Anita. I have five years of one-on-one tutoring experience. I have helped many students improve their skills in Spanish, English, writing and standardized test preparation (TOEFL, DELE and all other exams of Spanish language and literature).

I am a certified teacher with 10 years of classroom teaching experience. I had taught Spanish students across the spectrum, from elementary school to graduate students at a research university, and at all levels, from beginners to advanced language and literature courses. Though most of my experience in the classroom is teaching Spanish, I have also designed and taught remedial English reading and writing for incoming college freshmen and worked as a writing tutor while in college.

My academic career started at the University of Louisville, where I earned a BA in Spanish and Art History. After that, I earned my MAT in World Languages at National-Louis University. I am currently a doctoral candidate at the University of Chicago writing a dissertation on Spanish Early Modern theater.

Needless to say, I love to learn and I love to teach. I am a very patient and friendly individual and I would love to help you reach your full potential. I look forward to working with you!

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.
