About Janeth

If you work with me, you need to know that I love teaching but especially teaching in the United States!
In 2009, after meeting my husband online and spending all of 2008 getting my fiancé' visa, I left my family, friends and my teaching job and packed up everything and moved to the United States from Bogota, Colombia to start my life in the U.S. I have been living and teaching in Northern California since then.

I taught pre-school children in Bogota for 20 years and during that time I also tutored all ages in Spanish, from children to adults. When you meet me you'll see immediately that I'm passionate about life but more specifically, I'm passionate about passing on my love of the Spanish language and culture to people who are ready and willing to learn.

For me, tutoring is much more than teaching you a language; it's about forming a bond between teacher and student and in that relationship, we will learn much more than just a language; we'll enrich our lives together.

I look forward to meeting those of you who are drawn to me through this profile.

Sincerely,

Janeth

Kind and Thoughtful

Janeth is a wonderful teacher who over the past few months has challenged me in many different ways! She has taught me about Latin American culture, taken me to different places to practice my Spanish, has brought friends so I could converse with more people, and overall has been a patient and kind teacher. I have learned a lot from Janeth and I always look forward to our weekly sessions!
