About Kirsten

Learning a language is all about exposure - the more opportunities you have to use it and hear it, the better. My approach to language tutoring provides the means to both reinforce what is being learned in the classroom and challenge you to implement that knowledge in an engaging manner. As the language classroom is not working for the students who come my way, I go outside the traditional verb conjugation charts and vocabulary flashcards; I instead develop activities and games that instruct and push without seeming like memorization or a repeat of what you heard in class. My goal is to not only help you ace your tests, but also come out of a Spanish class with the ability to actually use the language.

As a non-native speaker of Spanish, I have sat in the same place as you; From my first day in the Spanish 1 classroom as a Freshman in high school to a Master's degree, I have experienced first-hand what is necessary to be a successful language learner. I am extremely passionate about people learning the language to which I have dedicated most of my academic and professional life, so I would love to show you the tricks of the trade!

I recently graduated from UCF with a Master's of Spanish with a 4.0 GPA. I pursued a Linguistics concentration within the Master's degree, and my thesis focused on processing dialectal variation in Spanish. Prior to that, I spent three years as an undergraduate at the University of Florida, graduating with a 3.9 GPA with a double major in Spanish and Linguistics. This dual perspective has provided me with a background in language acquisition and teaching that has allowed me to shape my lessons to better suit your needs as a language learner. Throughout grad school I worked part time as a Spanish tutor. Thus, I have years of experience tutoring all levels of Spanish, from middle school to the college level and would be able to provide references upon request.

Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my profile. I am more than happy to answer any questions or address concerns that you may have, please just send me a message!

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.

Spanish

I hold both a Master's and Bachelor's degree in Spanish as well as a second Bachelor's degree in Linguistics. I have experience tutoring all levels of Spanish and use my background in second language acquisition to develop my activities and lessons. Additionally, as a non-native speaker of Spanish, I know firsthand what it is like to go through the process of learning a language.
