About Rose

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!

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.

English

I have taught all levels of English as a Second Language (ESL) on the major university campuses and all skill areas (grammar, speaking, listening comprehension, writing and reading) for 14 years!

My students have improved and moved on to the university or have increased their job opportunities because their speaking and writing skills have been perfected. I will work with you to determine your weakest areas and will use innovative techniques so that you will enjoy learning and achieving your best!

ESL/ESOL

I have over 15 years experience teaching all levels of English as a Second Language (ESL) and all skill areas (grammar, reading, writing, speaking and comprehension). Feel more confident speaking and on the job! I can assist you with English specific to your profession, help you prepare for university admission, or improve your ability to communicate with friends, teachers, or doctors. I have taught, trained other teachers and directed English language programs on university campuses. I enjoy working with my students where I can make a difference and see my students make great progress.

Proofreading

I have taught English for over 16 years, including all levels of grammar, writing, reading and speaking. I have professionally proofread papers, business reports and documents, analyzed, edited and modified contracts, and prepared marketing materials for publication, involving all phases of proofreading and editing.

Reading

Over 15 years of experience teaching reading, comprehension, vocabulary, spelling and grammar to children and adults.

Spanish

I have a B.A. in Spanish and have taught all levels of Spanish to both adults and children. I am also certified by the Florida Department of Education to teach K-12 Spanish. I lived and worked abroad in Spain for over 8 years, so whether you need Spanish for Business or want to improve your ability to converse, I will help you reach your goals. Children will become immersed in the language through games and fun activities and will have a great time in the process! I love teaching and taking the time and patience with each individual. Each person has a different learning style and it is important for a teacher to understand how a student learns best so that lessons are successful. I will take that time with you or your student.

Excellent!

Rose was an excellent tutor! She worked very hard with our son. He mastered more with her in just a few sessions than he did all from all semester in his Spanish class. She helped him prepare very well for his final exam and he passed the course with flying colors! He also enjoyed his time with Rose a great deal. We highly recommend her!
