About Erica

Why I tutor writing:
I have experience teaching both creative and essay writing to children and young adults. I have worked as a professional reader for a major literary agent which meant reading unpublished novels and working with their authors to create better stories. I have also worked as both a staff writing and a contributing journalist for several magazines and newspapers. I graduated college with high honors in both literature and Latin American Studies.

Why I tutor Spanish:
I have tutored young adults and children in Spanish.
I lived in Mexico and in Colombia when I was growing up and I am fluent in Spanish. In Colombia I worked for a publisher reading Spanish/English books as an American lifestyle editor. I have worked as a contributing journalist for 2 bilingual newspapers in America.

I love to write and edit and to help people create well written, interesting pieces of writing in their own words.

I believe that the heart of learning and remembering a language is curiosity. I think that conversation is a great way to learn to use grammar and vocabulary and that writing what is being learned helps us to remember. I have been fortunate to have had some great teachers in my life. They taught me by showing passion and dedication. I hope to tutor the same way.
