About Audrey

I apply the same high expectations and work ethic I have for myself to my students. I graduated summa cum laude from Barnard College of Columbia University with a double major in English and Spanish, was awarded a Fulbright Fellowship to teach English at the University of Guadalajara in Mexico, and am currently pursing a PhD in Hispanic Languages and Literatures from UCLA.

Due to my extraordinary experiences teaching and tutoring, I wish to become a professor of Spanish and dedicate my life to education and ongoing learning. A student myself, I know first hand the daunting and thrilling prospect of learning new material, of gaining mastery and confidence, of seeing tangible growth and pushing oneself to always learn more.

I have taught business executives, Mexican college students, first graders from the upper East Side, inner-city high school students, Spanish middle schoolers, and oil workers from the Dakotas. Through these seven years of teaching in different contexts and even continents, I have learned to connect with students from diverse backgrounds and create an engaging learning environment. My ongoing research and doctoral training inspires me to keep up-to-date on the latest teaching methods, while not losing track of the importance of instilling solid study habits, developing a genuine personal connection to my students, and creating an enjoyable tutoring experience. I specialize in Spanish (all levels), English, reading, and writing. However, I also have experience tutoring math and science (up to eighth grade) social studies, and have prepared students for various standardized tests.

A fluent Spanish speaker, I am currently getting my PhD in Hispanic Languages in Literatures with a concentration in Latin American Literatures. I started speaking Spanish when I was six, as I attended a Spanish immersion elementary and middle school. Extensive study in Spain and Mexico (as well as my college major in Spanish) allowed me to pass the DELE C2, the European Union's highest test of Spanish proficiency.

My background as an English major inspired me to teach English at the University of Guadalajara as a Fulbright Fellow. In Mexico, I supplemented my work at the university with private tutoring for the TOEFL exam, and have also helped students prepare for other standardized exams. As I scored in the 99th percentile in the GRE reading section and in the 98th percentile on the SAT reading, I can share the study strategies and insights that helped me ace these tests.
