Hi! If you are looking for a tutor or teacher to help you with Spanish, I would enjoy helping you work with the language.

I have a post-baccalaureate in Spanish from the University of Washington. Living and studying in Peru and Guatemala, cemented grammar with conversation. I have had the luck to travel to many other Spanish speaking countries, as well. I have Montessori training for Adolescents, and have taught in both public and private school over the last ten years. My experiences range from 18 month old students to retired, life-long learners. I look forward to meeting you!

Testimonials

"She Makes Spanish Fun"

Sharilyn replied on 8/7/2014

Thank you! It is what I love in my heart. I feel lucky to have stumbled upon a skill I didn't know I had, when I wasn't looking for it, 14 years ago, post college. Becoming bilingual has brought me to some of the greatest places and people I know, and I believe will continue to do so!

I just had the opportunity to spend 10 days in Sayulita, Mexico. This was a new spot for me to visit. It was an excellent opportunity to practice Spanish while immersed in the culture. While in Sayulita, I had the opportunity to deliver and donate toys and school supplies that students in Washington had collected. Also, I was able to tour the international school in town called CostaVerde and... read more
