About Debora

I have taught all levels of Spanish, from elementary Spanish I to AP Spanish, for 25+ years. I am an AP Spanish Language and Culture Exam reader. I have also taught graduate Spanish courses at the university level. In addition to a master's degree in Spanish, I have a bachelor's degree in journalism and have worked as an editor at a daily newspaper. I have lived in and traveled extensively throughout Latin America.

I specialize in study skills and have a good success rate working with students who struggle with learning, especially a foreign language. I vary my instruction based on each student's individual learning style and strengths.
