About Kelsey

After doing exceedingly well in high school Spanish classes, I went on to study Spanish in college and embarked on a study abroad trip to Chile (South America), where I became fluent in Spanish in just five months, studying in a Chilean university with eight Spanish-taught classes. I have now been speaking Spanish for 10 years.

I love to share my passion for Spanish with those who wish to learn the language in their spare time. I have a plethora of materials and firsthand knowledge of what it's like to be a budding learner and speaker of Spanish.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Proofreading

Years of experience scrutinizing my own essays, as well as helping friends, colleagues, and students achieve a high bar of quality for their written work. Not just extreme attention to detail and familiarity with the magical red pen, I also possess the ability to teach students how to find errors and rough spots in the future, to better explain their ideas, and to feel confident with formatting.

Spanish

Due to its increasing presence in the demographics and popular culture of the United States, the exposure of the Spanish language across the Western world has increased accordingly, and it is widely considered to be the most beneficial second language for a native speaker of American English. Globally, the number of second language speakers of Spanish worldwide has grown considerably in the early 21st Century. This has been attributed to the increasing political stability and economies of many larger Hispanophone nations (Mexico, Colombia, Chile, Argentina, Peru), the language's immense geographic extent in Latin America and Europe for tourism, and the growing popularity of warmer, more affordable, and culturally vibrant retirement destinations found in the Hispanic world.
