About Rita

I have 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. Here, I have taught Beginning Spanish, Intermediate and Advanced Spanish, as well as French and E.S.L. to adults at the Charlotte County Cultural Center, Port Charlotte, Florida for the last 2-1/2 years since I relocated to Florida. I completed a B.A. at the University of Massachusetts, Boston, with a Spanish major, Business Mgmt. 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. As of late June of this year, approximately 35% of my hours of tutoring via Wyzant has been dedicated to teaching/tutoring English to students from other countries.

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!
