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!
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.

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.
