About Carmen

My experience as a Spanish teacher spans 15 years (I am also a native speaker), ranging from Kindergarten through 12th grade. My students, once they finish their middle school studies, have gone on to garnish very high Spanish grades in high school.

My tutoring, as well as my teaching methods, revolve around the proper form of Spanish (Castillian), with emphasis on grammar, relating English grammar with its Spanish counterpart by using articles, nouns, adjectives, verbs in all its related tenses, pronouns, adverbs, subjunctives, conditional clauses, commands, affirmative, negative, and interrogative sentences, prepositions, direct and indirect object pronouns.

I also give the students an introduction to Spanish literature, as well as learning the geography of Spanish speaking countries.

In my many years of teaching Spanish to all ages, I believe that my method is simple and straightforward, and the track record of success by my students indicates that. I prepare my students to use the language on an everyday basis, instead of just out of a book, because I believe that in this new bilingual society, knowledge of another language is essential to future success in their scholastic, as well as professional development.
