My name is Heidi, and I am a Spanish teacher with a Master's degree in Spanish and seven years of experience teaching middle school students. I believe language is connected to everything, and love finding new and exciting ways to make learning language relevant, fun, and accessible to students. As a teacher, I am trained in a variety of methodologies and understand the value in finding the style that works best for you.

ESL/ESOL

I have experience as a ESL volunteer tutor, having tutored Spanish speakers in an adult education program, as well as practicing conversational and career-related English with a Bosnian woman in her home. In my training as a language teacher, I have also taken several language acquisition classes at both the undergraduate and graduate level, including a TESOL class which covered methods and issues relevant to ELL students. I currently assist a elementary-aged Syrian student once weekly as part of my current job. I am a native English speaker and placed in the 98th percentile on the verbal portion of the GRE. My lessons and activities are practical, conversational, and tailored to the goals and needs of the student.

Social Studies

I am certified to teach Social Studies to grades 7-12 in Connecticut. I have completed all training (including classes in World History, American History, Politics, Anthropology and Economics) and passed the Praxis II Test for Social Studies content knowledge, receiving the Recognition of Excellence for placing in the top 15th percentile of candidates.

Spanish

I am a teacher with Connecticut certification for both Spanish and Social Studies. I am currently in my seventh year of teaching Spanish at a middle school, and recently completed my Master's degree in Spanish at the University of Connecticut. In addition to this experience, I have tutored Spanish for children as young as 7 years old, and did my student teaching in a high school, where I taught Spanish levels II, III and V (AP college prep).
