I taught Spanish 1, 2, 3, 4, 4-H, 5-H and Spanish 5-Advanced Placement at Hanover High School, Hanover, Massachusetts for 17 year before moving to Florida. Also, I've taught Beginning, Intermediate and Advanced Spanish, as well as French and E.S.L. to adults at the Charlotte County Cultural Center, Port Charlotte, Florida. I completed a B.A. at the University of Massachusetts, Boston, with a Spanish major, Business Mngmt. minor, and a concentration in International Relations. I have an M.Ed from Cambridge College, Cambridge, MA., as well as extensive graduate courses in Spanish at the Colegio de Espana in Salamanca, Spain and the Universidad de Alcala de Henares, just outside of Madrid, Spain.

E.S.L. EXPERIENCE: I am thrilled to share my love of the Spanish language AND of the English language to English-language learners.

From 2007 -- 2011, I taught English (E.S.L. -- English as a Second Language) summer-course teacher for Access to Language, Phoenix, AZ. Classes held at Stonehill College, Easton, MA and Curry College, Milton, MA. Here, I had the pleasure of meeting young students from all around the world. It was a richly-rewarding way to spend my summers for those four years, while living in Massachusetts.

When my husband and I moved to Florida, I began teaching E.S.L. to adults at the Charlotte County Cultural Center in Port Charlotte, Florida. Here, I had the pleasure of teaching and interacting with people from over 28 countries from around the world, some of whom I am still friends with today.

I am honored to help anyone in the noble pursuit of language learning, even if it is just to achieve a successful grade in high school or college or to learn the language for business or pleasure. Not all subjects come easy to everyone. Nearly 20 years of tutoring has taught me this. I look forward to helping you achieve your goals. I love people and I love what I do.

I listed some of my qualifications above but I also have a formal resume for your perusal.

I'm ready when you are! Let's get started on your road to success!

Super friendly

Rita really sent me a couple of great things that I could use and practice with to improve my Spanish for work ! She had a ton of information and was super friendly.

Arielle, 1 lesson with Rita

Excellent Tutor

My daughter had her first lesson with Rita and I couldn't be happier. She took the time to review the material ahead of time and provided helpful worksheets. Additionally, she was so kind and positive, that my daughter already looks forward to her next lesson. Thank you so much!

Susan, 2 lessons with Rita

Amazing and well prepared tutor!

My daughter was beaming with a new knowledge of Spanish after a lesson with Rita. We are signing back up!!!!! Thank you Rita. My 14 year old told her what she wanted to cover and she had exercises to help solidify the concepts we feel so lucky to have found her.

Anna, 10 lessons with Rita

Great Tutor

I have continued to work with Rita and she is amazing! I honestly do not know what I would have done without her! She has a very special way of teaching and making her students grasp the concept and understand the material in entirety. Definitely will strongly recommend her to any student!

Sridhivya , 23 lessons with Rita

Excellent tutor

Rita knows her subject well and is a true teacher! She spends the time wisely, focusing on what you need to know and has a warm personality. We appreciate her help and kindness.

Noon, 4 lessons with Rita

Knowledgeable and pleasant teacher

Rita taught my daughter high school Spanish 1 topics. She has good material and is very engaging. What my daughter found very refreshing was that Rita being so knowledgeable in Spanish also gets some challenges/confusions the students with English as their first language have while learning Spanish as a second language.

Sonali, 8 lessons with Rita

Great first lesson!

Rita is energetic and full of life. I enjoyed today's lesson! We have similar personalities and she is very knowledgeable of the spanish language. I look forward to more lessons with Rita!

Sarah, 9 lessons with Rita

Very knowledgeable and had access to many resources.

Rita is the best Spanish teacher I have ever had. She explained difficult concepts in a way to make them seem easy. I am so happy to have received a lesson from her and am looking forward to more in the future!
