About Bonnie

After 35 years of classroom teaching in public, parochial, and independent schools, I decided to shift gears and began homeschooling and tutoring. Although I missed the camaraderie of the school setting, I discovered that I enjoyed working one on one or with small groups.

Believe it or not, Latin is only offered in one high school in Miami! I would love to find a (or better, several!) Latin tutoring/teaching gigs. I miss it desperately. I also taught Spanish and would welcome the opportunity to tutor it as well. As a non-native Spanish speaker, I understand the difficulty of learning a foreign language!

I am CELTA certified and have taught ESL via Skype for three years. I love teaching ESL! After having taught Latin for so long, I thought I knew everything about English. Not so! I learn something new with every class I teach.

I have lived and worked in two Spanish-speaking countries (Spain and Mexico) and have lived in Miami for 25 years. As a non- native Spanish speaker, I am sympathetic to the difficulty many students have while trying to master the language.

If you're looking for an experienced, compassionate, and fun Spanish or Latin tutor, look no further. I look forward to hearing from you.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Latin

I taught Latin for over thirty years in a classroom setting and for several years after my retirement both in a home-school setting and online. Although I have taught other subjects throughout my career, teaching Latin was and remains my first love! Despite some people's thoughts to the contrary, learning Latin can be as fun as teaching it. I always had packed classes of very engaged students many of whom still keep in touch and sing the praises of knowing Latin. I would be very happy to help you improve/master your skills.

Knowledgeable with strong teaching skils

Bonnie taught me numerous ways to think about and learn the Preterite and Imperfect tenses. She understands fundamentally how to teach Spanish. She made sure I understood the basics first and gave me tips that only an experienced teacher could. Truly enjoyed my first session and it won't be my last!
