About Deirdree

I've always wanted to learn Spanish every since I was in Elementary school. I grew up in Ocala which at the time had a large number of Spanish speakers. I learned a few words here and there but it wasn't until I was in my senior year in 2004 that I actually began to study Spanish seriously. I went on to FSCJ as an illustration major, but when I got there I found myself more interested in taking Spanish classes as electives than art classes. During college I tutored Spanish at both Deerwood and South FSCJ campuses. It was here where I began to excel in Spanish; getting A's in all of my Spanish classes. At FSCJ I went on my first trip to a Spanish speaking country; Buenos Aires, Argentina. I went with my Spanish Professor and several students in my class. While we were there our professor sent us out in small groups to find information about the city by talking to people that we meet on the street. I was put in charge of one of the groups because my professor said that my accent was smoother, and therefore easier for native Spanish speakers to understand. A few months later I graduated from FSCJ(then FCCJ) as an eligible candidate for the national honors society.

I went on to University of Florida and majored in linguistics with a minor in Spanish. There I added ESOL(English as a second language to my tutoring experience)In 2008 I went to live for six weeks with a host family in the Dominican Republic while finishing up my credits at UF. My host family spoke no English so I was able to perfect my accent, learn more words and phrases and cultural differences. I'm a tutor who has learned Spanish as a second language, which means I have been where you are right now. I've gone through the drudgery of conjugating verbs, and I've experienced the joy of speaking with a native speaker and finally being able to understand what they are saying.I can help you get their too!

My style as a tutor is flexible and encouraging. It all depends on you! I can work with your personal learning objectives. Some people that I have tutored just need me to help them pass a test or pass a class. They want me to help them do what is needed to get them to their next level of academic success. Others would like to learn about Spanish culture, perfect their accents, and really be able to talk with and understand native speakers of Spanish. Either way I'm the tutor for you. Whatever your goal is I can help.
