About Mozelle

I hold a PhD in Spanish from Cornell University, where I worked as a Teaching Assistant for over 5 years, teaching all levels of Spanish language and literature. I have also taught Spanish at The Johns Hopkins University, where I completed my MA, as well as with the Committee for US Latin American Relations in Ithaca, NY. Before attending graduate school I worked as a tutor for students with disabilities at The University of CA in Santa Cruz.

My own journey towards Spanish fluency began in kindergarten, when my family moved to a majority Hispanic neighborhood in Southern CA and I was placed in a bilingual classroom. I knew then that I would eventually learn to speak the language but it would take a long time. I studied Spanish in High School and College and spent a combined 2.5 years in Mexico City, Ecuador and Chile. I also immersed myself in the Spanish speaking community where I lived in the US.

Because I have learned and taught Spanish as a second language in the classroom, I am especially good as explaining concepts that cause non-native Speakers confusion. I love Spanish grammar and can make you love it too! At the same time, I understand the interconnectedness of listening, speaking (with accurate pronunciation), reading, writing and even test taking.

I am interested in working with students who are:
* Just starting out and need more explicit instruction in the language
* Preparing to take the AP, SAT or CSET test
* Working to improve their reading or listening comprehension
* Working to improve their writing
* Interested in sounding more natural and adult when they speak
* Preparing to go abroad
