I have studied Spanish for almost 15 years and have traveled extensively through Central America and Spain. This language is a passion of mine. I have a wonderful way to teach it so that students can remember the rules. I have taken over 30 hours of classes through the university--classes in grammar and literature. Because I have a deep love for the language, it shines through in my teaching style.
I have over 12 years experience teaching English, Spanish and Communication at the elementary, middle, high school and college levels. I have also been an assistant in the Spanish department of two local schools. I love teaching and helping people of all ages and have been very successful as a teacher of English and Spanish. I have just received a HIGHLY QUALIFIED endorsement in Spanish on my state teaching license.
If you are needing an extra hand in any level Spanish class, traveling to a Latin-American country or Spain, or simply want to learn the language for fun, please contact me. Your success is very important !

Andrea engages my son into her tutoring. The first lesson went very well. She is patient and uplifting in her approach and it is obvious that she cares about her students.
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 a former forensic coach. When I taught high school, I built a forensic team that had 30 students on it. Many of them qualified for state competition. In addition, I am a national winner in public speaking--I made final rounds at nationals, and I earned 6th place in the nation in poetry interpretation. I was elected to be forensic coach of the year. I have also directed many plays and have been active in theatre in the past. Learning how to speak in public is one of the greatest skills a person can have. It not only opens up doors in the job market; it also builds self-confidence in a person. So few know how to do it well...but those who DO generally are very successful in their work as well as with personal relationships.
