About Andrea

I am new to Colorado Springs, but spent the past three years teaching middle and high school Spanish in Chicago and its suburbs. Prior to receiving my teaching certification, I taught independent conversational Spanish classes to adult students. I enjoy working with adolescents and adults, and I adapt my instruction to the unique needs of my students.

I have a Master of Education from DePaul University and undergraduate degrees in Sociology and Spanish from the University of Michigan. I studied abroad in Salamanca, Spain, and love to travel to Spanish-speaking countries.

My teaching methods are varied, but my overall goal is to connect instruction to real-life applications so that not only can my students understand Spanish, but they can be active participants with the language as well. In terms of my approach to instruction, my goal is to make learning another language as fun (and stress-free!) as possible.

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.

Spanish

I am a certified K-12 Spanish teacher, and I have taught middle and high school Spanish for the past three years.

I have taught Spanish I, Spanish III, and have participated in curriculum development to align Spanish classes through all high school levels.

I have also completed the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFLs) Oral Proficiency Interview workshop. This means that I am trained in the proficiency "benchmarks" from novice to advanced levels so that I can assess and prepare my students appropriately.

I have an Master of Education from DePaul University and undergraduate degrees from the University of Michigan.

Prior to becoming a certified teacher, I taught private conversational Spanish classes to adults for two years.
