About Romy

Hola!

I was raised in Honduras, Central America. My mother is a native Honduran and my father is from FL and an United States Marine. They met while my dad was on Embassy duty in Honduras. I was very blessed to have learned both English and Spanish at the same time.

At age 5 we moved to the USA. At age 13, I returned to go to school in Honduras. After studying 2 years, I returned with a proficiency in conversational Spanish. Later in High School and College I was in the Spanish Honor Society.

Fast forward to present time, I have helped develop my children with their Spanish skills and have tutored my friend's children as well. I am now taking my love of teaching to the next level as a certified Spanish Tutor.

My reward is watching my students attain more confidence during my sessions. They arrive apprehensive and within a few sessions they are confident speakers and want more.

I take a very fun and interactive approach to learning. I keep my students challenged but not overwhelmed. We study by flash cards, fun games, if allowed by the parent or guardian we study outside as well.

My policies are simple: Prepare to have fun and practice every chance you get. Learning a language takes time and many hours of practice in and out of the classroom.

I am available to meet in my home, your home or local library where there is a private room to reserve and utilize for teaching.

Please check out my days and times of availability and I look forward to hearing from you.

Hasta Pronto!

Thank you Angela for taking the time to review my lesson with your son! I as well was so impressed by how quickly he catches on and is so willing and eager to continue learning. I enjoyed meeting him and your family and look forward to watching him grow in his confidence and independent critical thinking for his age. No doubt he will get there quickly as he is so bright. Thanks again for the nice review. Kindest Regards Romy

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.

Encouraging and patient tutor

My son had his first lesson with Romy and he really enjoyed learning with her. She was patient and taught him key words to understand what the math problem was asking him to do so he could figure it out on his own as well. She made him feel very comfortable and confident. He is eager to learn and looking forward to his next lesson. Thank you Romy!
