San Diego State University (Spanish with Teaching Emphasis)
Georgetown University (Master's)
I am a native Spanish speaker who has studied the language extensively. I learned Spanish in my home and studied it formally throughout my college years. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Spanish with a teaching emphasis and a minor in Portuguese.
I continued to study Spanish at Georgetown University where I received a Master's Degree in Spanish Linguistics. Both Georgetown and SDSU prepared me for my career, but not only as a teacher of a language, but as a language learner, as well. This theoretical and practical knowledge easily translated into the classroom environment.
I have taught both middle and high school Spanish. In addition, I have taught adults at the college level. Most recently, I taught intensive Spanish to government and military personnel. I am quite knowledgeable regarding the requirements for the government's language proficiency requirements.
In addition to my teaching experience, I have been a tutor since I was in high school and have continued to tutor into my adult life. I have tutored high school students, college classmates, and adults (to include college students, defense contractors, State Department, DEA, and military personnel).
As a teacher, I am familiar with the most effective teaching methodologies. As a tutor, I know how to tailor-make lesson plans to facilitate learning for you. Language learning should be fun, engaging and about you, the learner. I look forward to helping you learn and enjoy Spanish and Spanish culture as much as I do!

I am so grateful for the time that Judy spent tutoring me in Spanish this week and know that my strong performance on my competency exam was due to her thorough explanations and detailed knowledge of when and how to use various conjugations, among other concepts. Judy was extremely patient and explained concepts to me in a few minutes that I hadn't learned after years of studying Spanish in an academic environment. I greatly enjoyed the lesson as Judy is so easy to talk to and she really knows how to make the subject enjoyable.
Judy is a fantastic, knowledgeable tutor and I highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for help in Spanish of any kind!
My Spanish tutor Judy always has an encouraging word. "Excellente! Muy bien". She introduces new lesson material at just the right pace and sets up conversational review to re-enforce what we have been studying.
Judy has excellent teaching skills and significant training. In addition, she has an extremely articulate Latin American accent which allows me to learn top quality pronunciation. I am able to illustrate what areas I wish to focus on and Judy introduces material that is totally compatible.
I know that I am making excellent progress and am convinced that Judy's tutoring is a remarkably good value.
I can recommend Judy and WyzAnt to friends who wish to have an unparalleled one-on-one learning experience.
Judy is amazing! I took a full-immersion, intensive Spanish course at the University of California, San Diego that rapidly covered Spanish A, B and C over the course of nine weeks. With Judy's help I was able to comprehend the lessons and course objectives and score much better on my tests than I had done studying on my own. Judy is so incredibly patient, explains the grammar extremely well, and is an overall friendly and enjoyable person to work with. I recommend her to any Spanish student who needs the extra help!
Judy tutored me for around a month or so. I was having a tough and difficult time last year in Spanish; I really didn't enjoy Spanish at all. But since my tutoring lessons, I feel more ambition to get good grades in Spanish and to try hard. Judy is a great motivator. Judy was also very patient and worked with me in the areas that needed improvement.
Judy was amazing! She was willing to meet whenever wherever had a flexible schedule. Broke down Spanish concepts I had been struggling with into a way that I understood. I am a student at University of San Diego in Third Semester Spanish and within the matter of one month she helped me pull my grade from a C+ to a B+. Could not have asked for a better tutor and all around great person!
After only two lessons my daughter already feels more confident about Spanish. I am very happy to have found Judy and highly recommend her.
Judy has been working with my son on Spanish. She has made a subject that he started disliking to something he really likes and enjoys. He loves her teaching style as she is warm and makes it fun to learn!
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.
While many tutors offer tutoring in various subjects, I strictly offer tutoring in my field, Spanish. Of course as a trained teacher I can assess a student, offer advice about organization and study habits, but I strictly tutor in the Spanish Language. I am not a jack-of-all-trades. I am a Spanish Teacher and my entire career has been dedicated to becoming a better Spanish Instructor. You will find few that are as dedicated to the teaching of the Spanish Language as I am.
