About Beatriz

I am a certified teacher and a native Spanish speaker from Caracas, Venezuela, and bring almost 15 years of Spanish Instruction experience collectively acquired in a classroom setting as well as a private tutor for both children and professional adults alike, having served as a Spanish teacher, language trainer, consultant and medical interpreter. I pioneered the first Medical Interpreter and cultural competence program of its kind at D.C. General Hospital serving the Spanish-speaking communities residing in the D.C. metropolitan area to improve access to quality healthcare services. I received a Masters of Arts in Latin American and Caribbean Studies and a Masters in Public Administration from New York University. I am a member of the International Medical Interpreters Association (IMIA).

I thoroughly enjoy teaching this beautiful language and can help you or your child learn fairly quickly while having fun learning in the process. My teaching methodology includes learner-friendly language materials, intensive drill for maximum memory-burn and recall, role-play simulations among other specific teaching techniques. In addition, at the end of each lesson, I can further assist the student, if you or he/she wishes to tap into basic neurolinguistic programming concepts related to learning typically used to reinforce inner learning abilities while increasing self-confidence to accomplish your desired goals more easily and with less effort. As your Spanish tutor, I can promise you my devoted attention to your specific language needs and my unwavering determination to see you learn and succeed.

I look forward to being the wind beneath your wings.

Yours in service,
Beatriz

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Spanish

I am a certified teacher and a native Spanish speaker from Caracas, Venezuela, and bring almost 15 years of Spanish Instruction experience in a classroom setting as well as a private tutor for both children and adults alike having served as educator, Spanish language trainer, consultant and medical interpreter. I pioneered the first Medical Interpreter and cultural competence program of its kind at D.C. General Hospital serving the Spanish-speaking communities residing in the D.C. metropolitan area to improve access to quality healthcare services. I received a Masters of Arts in Latin American and Caribbean Studies and a Master's in Public Administration from New York University. I earned a Public Service Scholarship from New York University among other awards and honors. I am a member of the International Medical Interpreters Association (IMIA).

I thoroughly enjoy teaching this beautiful language and can help you or your child learn fairly quickly while having fun learning in the process. My teaching methodology includes learner-friendly language materials, intensive drill for maximum memory-burn and recall, role-play simulations among other specific teaching techniques. I begin by assessing the subject matter skills along with acquired study habits to better understand my student’s strengths and weaknesses in such areas as time management, concentration, memory, study aids, note taking skills, test strategies, information processing, etc to enable me to have a frame of reference from which to make sound recommendations in terms of study skills practices that will fully support what you or your child intends to learn. With this baseline in mind, at the end of each lesson, I can further assist the student, if you or he/she wishes to tap into basic neuro-linguistic programming concepts related to learning typically used to reinforce inner learning abilities while increasing self-confidence to accomplish your desired goals more easily and with less effort and time.

As your Spanish tutor, I can promise you my devoted attention to your specific language needs and my unwavering determination to see you learn and achieve your goals.

Study Skills

Over the past fifteen years, my professional career serving as a teacher/language trainer and consultant afforded me opportunities to develop, expand and continue to refine teaching specific methodologies for approaching the subject of study skills.

I have learned to first assess where my students stand with regards to their particular studying habits in their academic pursuits. After I have evaluated them in various areas such as time management, concentration, memory, study aids, note taking skills, test strategies, information processing, etc. I am then, in a much better position to understand their strengths and weaknesses and provide them with specific recommendations and study skills practices that will fully support what they are desiring to learn.

As an Adjunct Instructor at Palm Beach State College, I have had the opportunity to design and teach Spanish to students and English speaking professionals from all walks of life communicate and better understand the nuances of the Spanish language and other courses relating to cultural competence in the marketplace. I have also tutored for varying tutoring companies. As a private tutor in English as a second language and as a Spanish Language tutor for children, young adults and adult learners, I have always included studying skills as an integral part of the lesson itself. In addition, my experience in instructional design, training and public speaking have also helped to mature my own abilities in support of my students.
