About Jenny

I received my BA in Spanish from the University of Hawaii at Manoa, and lived in Nicaragua for four months after graduation. I first started learning Spanish in middle school, completing four years of classes before I attended university. During university, I took a total of 48 credits of Spanish classes, achieving a 3.3 GPA for that subject. While taking classes, I also tutored other students in Spanish. After graduation in May of this year, I decided to live abroad to continue improving my fluency.

On June 1st, I moved to the rural town of Gigante, Nicaragua. While there, I lived with a local family and taught English to both children and adults. After living there for four months, I moved to San Diego, and I am now working with a nonprofit organization that serves Latino immigrants.

I've been in the same position as most students when it comes to difficulty engaging in a class that does not draw us in. The beauty of language is that there are an infinite amount of ways to learn the information, and many of them are interactive. I enjoy finding the method of teaching that is most successful for the student, whether it's art projects, music, puzzles, charts, or dialogs. Although I take pride in explaining things simply, clearly, and in detail, it is more of a conversation than a lecture.

I have taught English to Spanish speakers, and enjoy working with both children and adults.
