About Katalina

Go beyond just learning the technicalities of Spanish and instead immerse yourself with a native speaker as you would if you traveled to Central or South America! I love learning, tutoring and seeing the pride of students when they make connections and master concepts. I see myself as a navigator and coach to my students, guiding them to those “Aha” moments.

Besides my formal education: a B.A. and advanced Spanish, I am Hispanic and the latter part of my childhood and later professional experience was spent in South America. I have tutored students from several nations both overseas and here in the United States for many years.

My focus is primarily on Spanish and English, but also tutor other subjects. I attempt to make the lesson content fun and relevant to my students and keep good communication and feedback flowing between myself, the student, parents and any other adults in this educational loop. I also welcome feedback on my tutoring.

I have a 24-hour cancellation policy and offer makeup lessons. I have some flexibility in the meeting location. In some cases, (distance for example), I find that online tutoring is equally suitable.

Please feel free to contact me with any question. I look forward to guiding you to achieving your best!

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.

Bible Studies

I have studied the Bible for thirty years, conducting several Bible Studies during that time. I also created Bible Studies for Spanish and Italian speakers.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have tutored children and adults as a freelance tutor and as a tutor with Club Z. When I work with Club Z, my students range from preschool through 12th grade. The subjects I primarily tutor in are Spanish, English, and all subjects except Science.

Elementary Math

I've had experience working with students struggling with math, am quite patient and very sensitive to working with each student as individuals and at a comfortable pace.

I'm approved by WyzAnt to work in this area with this subject.

Proofreading

I have many years of experience as a translator, proofreading in both English and Spanish.

Every document I translate must be proofread. I also receive projects that need to be directly proofread.

My preparation to work in translation (Pontifica Universidad Catolica de Ecuador) qualifies me for this work and I do it on a regular basis.

Spanish
