About Judy

I am a native Spanish speaker who has studied the language extensively. I learned Spanish in my home and studied it formally throughout my college years. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Spanish with a teaching emphasis and a minor in Portuguese.

I continued to study Spanish at Georgetown University where I received a Master's Degree in Spanish Linguistics. Both Georgetown and SDSU prepared me for my career, but not only as a teacher of a language, but as a language learner, as well. This theoretical and practical knowledge easily translated into the classroom environment.

I have taught middle and high school Spanish. In addition, I have taught adults at the college level. Most recently, I taught intensive Spanish to government and military personnel. I am quite knowledgeable regarding the requirements for the government's language proficiency requirements and with the best techniques to aid in becoming more fluent.

In addition to my teaching experience, I have been a tutor since I was in high school and have continued to tutor into my adult life. I have tutored middle and high schoolers, college students and adults learning for pleasure and/or their careers.

As a teacher, I am familiar with the most effective teaching methodologies. As a tutor, I know how to tailor-make lesson plans to facilitate learning for each individual student. Language learning should be fun, engaging and about you, the learner. I look forward to helping you learn and enjoy Spanish and Spanish culture as much as I do!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Spanish

While many tutors offer tutoring in various subjects, I strictly offer tutoring in my field, Spanish. Of course as a trained teacher I can assess a student, offer advice about organization and study habits, but I strictly tutor in the Spanish Language. I am not a jack-of-all-trades. I am a Spanish Teacher and my entire career has been dedicated to becoming a better Spanish Instructor. You will find few that are as dedicated to the teaching of the Spanish Language as I am.
