About Ava

I have experience tutoring in Spanish and ESL, including private lessons and classes. I have CELTA (Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) which I passed with the highest grade possible- a Pass A. I also just spent a year teaching English classes with International House in Querétaro Mexico. While there I taught business English in companies such as Siemens, Tetra Pak, KPMG, and Revlon, general English courses in levels A1-C1 and some prep courses for the FCE exam.

I graduated from the University of Florida in 2014 with a 3.9 GPA with my Bachelors in Spanish and have spent significant periods of time overseas in countries such as: Costa Rica, The Dominican Republic, Brazil, Ecuador, and Mexico.

I am very fluent in Spanish and have an advantage in tutoring Spanish over a native speaker because I have learned all of the formal rules and know many tricks and tips that help a native English speaker excel in Spanish. I have experience teaching adults and young learners. I love helping people further their language skills, it gives me great personal satisfaction when my students show marked progress.

My Spanish background also particularly enables me to help native Spanish speakers learn English as I am familiar with the common problems and difficulties, both phonologically and semantically, that plague Spanish speakers when they are learning English.

Cancellation
2 hours notice required

I don't give just a single hour of tutoring; that's why my rate is lower. What I've learned from teaching is it takes time to focus and start learning, so my minimum time is 1.5-2 hours a session.

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.

Bible Studies

I was raised Christian, attending church and Sunday school once or twice a week. I've read through the entire Bible and have read the new testament 3 times. I attended exclusively Christian schools where we were required to take Bible Studies classes every year.

IELTS

I learned about the IELTS during my CELTA and taught a course for IELTS test prep with International House.
