I am here to help you learn Spanish effectively through personalized lessons and fun practical learning methods.

I am a Colombian-American native Spanish speaker with 9 years of experience tutoring Spanish from Beginner to Advanced Conversation levels.

I have:
* 9 years of tutoring experience with dozens of satisfied clients.
*earned a 5/5 on the AP Spanish Exam.
*been inducted into the Sociedad Nacional Honoraria Hispanica - National Collegiate Hispanic Honor Society
*earned the College Reading and Learning Association Tutor Certification in 2011.
* graduated from the State University of New York at New Paltz with a major in Latin American and Caribbean studies and a double minor in Spanish and German.
* a strong desire to help you excel in your Spanish skills.

At the State University of New York at New Paltz, I tutored Spanish (from Beginners to Advanced Spanish literature courses) for 4 years at the Tutoring Center.
I have helped many students (from different levels and ages) achieve academic success in their Spanish classes through fun, engaging and practical methods. I use a plethora of useful resources for learning Spanish and make the sessions engaging, interesting and fun to learn. I use a personalized comprehensive tutoring style to make sure every session is productive.

In 2014, I earned my translation and interpretation certification through the City University of NY Hunter College. I provide freelance translations and interpretations and have extensive experience providing interpretation services at national and international events as well as translating press releases, questionnaires, testimonials, pamphlets and other documents.

Since I studied Spanish and German as a minor I understand first-hand the patience and methods involved in learning a new language. A student's success is my success. I have studied Portuguese and German for several years so I incorporate useful methods to learn languages quickly and effectively.

If you are looking for an experienced, patient, native Spanish speaker tutor contact me today so you can learn Spanish fluently!

¡Hasta pronto!

Laura was wonderful! She made me feel comfortable during the lesson, was extremely knowledge of the language and structure of the language, and she provided me with multiple ways for how I could improve.
