The City College of New York
Queens College of the City University of New York (Master's)
I specialize in teaching English-Spanish or Spanish-English functional bilingualism. By functional bilingualism I mean being able to communicate professionally in both languages, including writing, of course. Even when I teach a basic course in English as a second language or Spanish, my approach is to make the student aware of the differences between the two languages --the main obstacles.
My formal education includes a Bachelor of Arts from the City College of New York with a major in the History of Ideas; a Master of Arts in Spanish language and literature; and six graduate courses completed toward a master’s degree in English linguistics. I have also attended various professional workshops in my long career.
My work experience is wide-ranged. I have worked as a teacher (Spanish and English as a second language) and as a journalist (Voice of America and UNIVISION). In addition, I was a TV producer for the U.S. Information Agency as part of their diplomatic endeavors with Latin America. For family reasons, I had to move back to Miami. Here I ran a small business, Bilingual Communications Consultants, offering translation and copywriting services. I am now semi-retired.
I write fiction a well, in both Spanish and English. For samples of my creative writing, please ask.

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.
I am not just a teacher --I'm a linguist.
I have taught ESL at Miami-Dade Community College as well as in the Miami-Dade County Public School System (in the adult schools).
I have completed all the graduate courses in English linguistics required for ESL certification by the state of Florida.
In addition to teaching, I freelance as a bilingual writer and translator. I write professionally in English and Spanish and translate from Spanish into English and the other way around.
