Bio

I use creative tools so you can achieve your goals and make communication fun, regardless of what language you need help with or what level you are at today!

I am a lover of languages; as a high school Spanish teacher and with years of language tutoring under my belt, I have the experience and skills to help you increase your fluency, ace that exam, or boost your confidence so you feel like a language master. I use creative tools so you can achieve your goals and make communication fun, regardless of what language you need help with or what level you are at today!

I am an enthusiastic and patient tutor, and I always bring a smile. My favorite subjects are all language-based: Spanish, French and English (including both ESL and writing skills!). I have a near-native fluency in Spanish, having lived in Peru and Argentina, and have a strong command of French after years studying both languages at the high school and university levels.

Helping a student to achieve her goals is my objective when I meet with a client, whether to improve grades in school, gain fluency in a language before a business trip, or to ace an upcoming exam. I enjoy creating flexible lesson plans that fit to each individual student and have proven skills in helping students acquire confidence in or mastery of a foreign language.

Contact me at any time – I can't wait to meet you!

I am a native English speaker holding a TEFL degree from Oxford Seminars and with experience teaching English as a Second Language at all levels. I was an English Teaching Assistant in Peru for most of 2015, where I worked with ESL students on grammar, pronunciation, spoken and written fluency, as well as preparation for tests like the TOEFL and the IELTS. I led a conversation class and helped students prepare for international exams among other responsibilities in the classroom. I also taught with OpenEnglish for a few months and am comfortable teaching students online in addition to in-person meetings.

I've tutored elementary and middle school reading for both high-achieving students and for those who are having a harder time. For children who don't like to read, I'm confident they just haven't found the right books yet. This is where I begin with my students and the best way to build interest and then confidence in their reading skills.
