I earned a MA degree in Spanish Language and Literature.
I have taught at SF State University, the University of Notre Dame de Namur in Belmont and Skyline College.
I lived in Mexico for an extensive period and understand the difficulties an English speaker might have learning to read, write and speak Spanish. I am able to assist the student to overcome Spanish language learning difficulties from pronunciation, grammatical and cultural differences.
Language learning is not difficult. It is the intuitive instructor who is able to inspire and teach the student.
Enjoy the benefits of being bilingual. Your life can truly change by opening new doors by being able to speak more than one language! I earned a MA degree in Spanish Language and Literature.

Carole did an amazing job not only in tutoring Spanish but in helping our daughter overcome the panic she would feel in class and during oral exams. Carole is patient, kind, fun, and very experienced. She tailored each session to our daughter's needs and was able to customize and personalize discussions in Spanish to our daughter's interests. She clearly thought about how to engage our daughter in the subject. Carole quickly built our daughter's confidence in her own knowledge so that she no longer dreaded being called on in the all-Spanish class and during oral exams. We are very grateful to Carole!
Carole is an excellent teacher. She had a good grasp and knowledge of several areas which were brought about in the discussion. She helped me in gaining clarity about my long term goals and objectives. She was able to clearly connect the common thread between several areas we discussed and was very patient, unassuming and gave a constructive feedback.
I will very much look forward to work with Carole in the coming months as a team.
Our son had an excellent experience with Carole, sharpening up his Spanish skills before a third-year final exam (Spanish 5/6, for those of you keeping score). Carole did a great job of reviewing verb structures in ways that caused everything to make sense. She also had lots of very useful pointers for the oral exam. She underscored ways to sustain a dialogue - and make the most of existing vocabulary and grammar - rather than getting trapped in difficulties trying to express a particular response.
I only wish we had started with her earlier in the semester.
Carole has been working with my son for few months now. She has helped him not only with his AP Spanish but also with his writing in English. She is very organized in her work and follows through with the work she gives him on a weekly basis. We are very happy with the result we got so far. Thank you.
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.
