Bio

I truly enjoy helping others learn language and have over 16 years of experience teaching all levels of Spanish and English as a Second or Other Language (ESOL). I hold a B.A. in Spanish, work with local colleges and the public schools, and am thoroughly familiar with the Spanish culture since I lived in Spain for many years and have lived and traveled in Latin America as well.

I truly enjoy helping others learn language and have over 16 years of experience teaching all levels of Spanish and English as a Second or Other Language (ESOL). I hold a B.A. in Spanish, work with local colleges and the public schools, and am thoroughly familiar with the Spanish culture since I lived in Spain for many years and have lived and traveled in Latin America as well.

I specialize in working with students, children and adults who need help in becoming proficient. So, if you are a middle, high school (regular program or IB) or college student trying to keep up with your classes, an adult needing conversational Spanish or wishing to acquire Spanish skills for business, travel or getting ahead in the workplace, we can come up with a plan that will get you where you wish to go. Corporate training is one of my specialties! If you are interested in having your child become proficient in Spanish, (particularly if you are home-schooling), we can have a great time together learning the basics with fun, activities and getting full immersion at home.

For those of you whose native language is not English, if you wish to improve your conversational skills, reduce your accent, learn grammar, need to improve your reading comprehension or written English on the job, or even need specialized English for specific industries, I will be happy to assist you reach your goals. For over 16 years, here and abroad, I have been teaching all levels of the English language in all skill areas (grammar, writing, listening comprehension, and speaking) at local universities, companies (corporate training) and in public schools, and formerly directed a university English as a Second or Other Language (ESOL) program before moving abroad. With my extensive training in ESOL methodology, I will be able to quickly assess your current level and work with you on a plan to become fully proficient, speak with ease, improve your pronunciation and make you feel confident whether you are on the job, shopping or trying to speak to your doctor or child’s teacher. If you are studying for the TOEFL, I can work with you to focus on key areas so that you can reach the score you need to access the university of your dreams.

I will also assist with proofreading papers for students or professionals. I am here to provide solid support!

A Grateful Family

Rose assisted my wife for the citizenship exam and English as a second language. She was very dedicated and was able to provide excellent study materials which helping my wife successfully prepare for the exam in which she was able to complete successfully. Gracias Rose!! God bless you.

Lilliam, 31 lessons with Rose

Rose is Fantastic!

Rose has been working with my wife as I had found Rose on Wyzant and as a gift for my wife for her birthday, we had Rose begin helping/tutoring English. My wife has been enjoying every minute she's had with Rose. Having English as a second language can be a difficult and daunting task to overcome the lack of confidence in speaking it. Rose has immediately impacted my wife and can see my wife's confidence growing week by week. Thank you Rose on behalf of my wife and myself!

Joe, 19 lessons with Rose
Tutor responded:

The pleasure is all mine, Joe! I truly enjoy every class with your wife who is an excellent listener, actively incorporating new material and gaining confidence each day. I am very excited to see her steady progress. Thanks to your wife for her hard work and to you for supporting her efforts!

Patience and Practice

My daughter really liked how Rose took the time to help her! She was very patient and informative.

ARIK, 3 lessons with Rose
Tutor responded:

It's a pleasure to work with your daughter! She's extremely motivated and works hard to absorb and successfully apply what she is learning.

Dedicated, Passionate, and Skillful Tutor

Rose is dedicated, passionate, and skillful at what she does. She is able to adapt her teaching style to best fit each individual student (in my case, a close family member). She always prioritized the student’s comfort, and clearly prepared before every lesson to make the most efficient use of our time. We were so glad to have found Rose to assist a family member in improving their English literacy skills. We saw an improvement in proficiency and enthusiasm over just a few lessons thanks to her hard work and patience. I would happily recommend Rose to any student aiming to improve their foundational or advanced English literacy skills. Thanks again for your hard work and commitment!

Nathan, 4 lessons with Rose

Patient and helpful as a tutor

On our first meeting Rose took the time to evaluate my son's strengths and weaknesses and then develop a plan of action. My son looks forward to continuing with Rose and I would highly recommend her as a Spanish tutor.

Kirsten, 9 lessons with Rose

Very clear, and very relatable.

I really enjoyed how the lesson was catered almost perfectly to my needs, rather than the 'one size fits all' approach of the traditional classroom. Unfortunately, the combination of travel distance and medical school coming up will prevent me from making this reoccurring, but I learned a bunch in the one meeting we had.

David, 1 lesson with Rose

Rose is prepared and ready to adapt to your needs

Rose met with me and we talked about what my needs would be and what I wanted to learn from her. Then we dove right in and began with greetings and initial conversation. She gave me comments on what to work on for improvement for our next session and also knew how to adapt my current level to what she will prepare for next time. Rose was patient and easy to work with, I can't wait for our next session!

Johanna , 8 lessons with Rose

Great Tutor

My wife and I are not in the habit of submitting online reviews, but we truly feel moved to comment on Rose. She has proven to be a really great tutor over the past 4 months or so since she started working with us. Not only has Rose been patient, thorough, and accessible, but she has also adapted her material and her style to meet our interests and our needs at our current level. She has quickly helped us develop practical language skills that allow us to communicate in Spanish on everyday interactions while also building a solid foundation for future learning. In short, we are acquiring real-time skills without sacrificing academic integrity, and we are doing so with a supportive and interesting tutor who can share her cultural experiences.
