About Kathy

Hello-

I look forward to meeting you either out on the water or in the language lab!


After over a decade of teaching Spanish, opportunities to live and work abroad in Spain and Mexico, and numerous trips to the islands, I found the best technique to teach Spanish. This technique for language acquisition is easy, fun, and facilitates the retention of Spanish in each students' long term memory. I individualize each session to enhance the language needs of each student. The method I use enables the student to internalize the Spanish language, not only will my student be able to pass the quiz tomorrow, the words and syntax will be available in their long term memory. It is very much like learning English. Many of my high school students revealed to me later in their adult lives that that they needed their Spanish language skills every day. Often students find themselves speaking Spanish due to their careers, new relatives, or hobbies.
I am enthusiastic and creative. I can find a way to best facilitate your learning style. The preferences of visual learners, auditory learners, and kinesthetic learners, are all considered in my tutoring design. My teaching and tutoring experiences have included students of all ability levels. Lastly, children are never too young to learn another language!

Swimming is my passion and I like to share it. I have a great respect for the water and teach safety first. The water provides a natural nearly gravity free zone to exercise which is easier on the body. Regular swimming enhances flexibility, coordination and self-esteem. Children develop stamina; learn aquatic skills and social skills at the same time.
First, I make sure my students are comfortable in water. Then we work on building stamina and defining techniques. There is an added advantage, swimming promotes restful sleep.
