I studied Spanish formally for about 10 years, culminating in a BA in Spanish and International Studies. I spent a semester in Seville, Spain, and I have been travelling frequently ever since, mostly in Latin America (Mexico and Guatemala primarily). I spent my last year in college as a Spanish tutor with the University of Wisconsin-Madison TRIO student academic support program, tutoring students of various interests and abilities and sparking my passion for teaching. I also enjoy teaching English grammar, having studied it both formally and informally. I have also informally tutored English language learners in Mexico.
I have enjoyed a rewarding professional career, promoting study abroad to college students while living, traveling and leading trips in places such as Mexico, Ecuador, Peru, Guatemala, and, most recently, Australia. I am excited to return to Fort Collins with a newfound perspective of our wonderful world and to share my education and experience of the Spanish language and myriad cultures with my tutees! I'm currently enrolled in an MA in Multilingual Education: World Languages program with Spanish language licensure at UNC.
I am easy-going, humble, flexible, and personable. I look forward to working with you to provide an engaging and enjoyable learning experience!

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.
