About Martha

Hello! I'm Martha, a graduate of SUNY Buffalo with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish. During my 4 1/2 years of college education, I also attended Ithaca College for 2 years, where I majored in Cinema & Photography (concentration in Still Photo), and the Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona in Spain for a year-long Language Teacher Training Partnership scholarship program.

My past tutoring experience includes voluntary services proofreading and grammar/spelling/vocabulary help in English for native German, Spanish/Catalan, Dutch, and Czech speakers. I also worked at IC Intercambios, through which I met every week with a 22-year-old Spanish-speaking individual from Mexico and taught him English.

I was also lucky enough to have had an internship working with children ages 5-10 in an elementary school just outside of Barcelona, Spain while living there. During my time at the school, I assisted the on-site English teacher during her classes and helped her create handouts and activities that facilitated language learning.

I am a very personable, outgoing individual, and I find that the combination of a positive outlook and real-world applications makes teaching effective and learning easy!

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.

Gifted tutor — Martha is a highly gifted tutor who helped my son greatly improve his grades in third year high school Spanish. She's intelligent, caring, and comes fully prepared for each lesson. I especially like how she provides memory aids so that the content of her lessons are easily recalled. Thank you Martha for all your help. We really appreciate it. ...
