About Carmen

¡Hola!

I was born and raised in Puerto Rico and I grew up speaking Spanish. I am state-certified Spanish (K-12) and tutored at Northwest Florida State College for the past 2 years. I enjoy teaching all aspects of the language: grammar, reading, writing and conversation. All my lessons are planned around the needs, strengths, and interests of each student. It is important for me to motivate the student and help them connect with Spanish.

I find tutoring very rewarding and I am passionate about helping students achieve their goals. One of my goals is to keep the student challenged but not overwhelmed. My style is friendly, enthusiastic and patient.

I use a multi-faceted approach based on the student’s goals. If the student wants to improve grammar or vocabulary, I may use visual aids or written homework (just enough to reinforce the lesson) given emphasis to the language’s structure. If the student wants to improve pronunciation, we will practice pronunciation patiently correcting any errors in detail. I blend in grammatical instruction when necessary, but I never go above the student's level. Speaking and thinking in Spanish is part of all lessons.

After each class, I provide a summary of the lesson. I also provide periodic assessments and progress reports as well.

The first session is free. In this session I learn the student's learning style, strengths, areas of improvement and interests. I also try to make the student comfortable speaking Spanish from the beginning.

I am generally available every day from 10 am to 8 pm central time. I can travel to students or meet them online.


¡Adiós!
