I love helping people and have a special interest in Spanish grammar. I worked as a Spanish tutor while I was in college and later as a substitute Spanish teacher. I have helped my own kids as they have gone through our local schools and understand the demands and needs of students. I look forward to helping you achieve your goals!
I am a native English speaker with a BA in Spanish language and an MA in Latin American and Ibero Studies, focusing on business and political science. I keep my language skills current by taking classes through adult ed and speaking Spanish with my family, often discussing Spanish grammar with a family member who was an interpreter with the LA County Courts. Others might be native Spanish speakers, but it takes skill to be able to teach the grammar and to understand how it relates to English. I have found that understanding what a student knows about English informs how I can best help them learn Spanish.

She is the best at teaching me at my pace and going over rules and examples until I fully understand. And helping me with my reading and comprehension skills.
Sarah has been meeting with me twice a week for about 2 weeks to help me with my college-level Spanish. I am taking an advanced Grammar and a Spanish linguistics class. I was struggling with the work load in both of these classes... until I met Sarah! She has helped me understand each subject and breaks down each Chapter for me. My grades have improved immensely (I even scored the highest grade on my Spanish linguistics test which was 100%). She is patient, knowledgable, and a very good teacher. She understands the difficulty of learning a second language and overall is very helpful. I highly recommend her for tutoring in any subject!
She is great!!! Working with my 8 year old son its NOT easy!!Sarah has that " mom experience" that knows how to discipline kids with love.
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.
I am an expert in Spanish Grammar. I love working with the language and helping others learn it too! As a native-English speaker, I can understand the challenges a Spanish-learner faces and can help them make a smooth transition into mastering Spanish grammar.
