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.

Rita is an excellent tutor!!

My son was very happy with Rita. He said that she helped him understand the Spanish homework & went through each one in detail. We will go back to Rita if Dev needs more help in Spanish

Puja, 2 lessons with Rita

Fantastic responsive tutor

We worked on reflexive, indirect and direct pronouns. I learn slowly and Rita was careful not to go too fast. She shared visuals with me that helped a lot. She is very kind.

Helped out in a pinch

Helped review my writing skills in Spanish for an assignment. Helped by correcting my use of verbs in the past tense. Worked within a short span of time. Allowed me to complete the assignment correctly.

Positive reinforcement

She is helping build my daughter's confidence in saying Spanish words. Rita is patient and excellent at providing positive reinforcement. She has given Grace some helpful ways to remember what certain words mean.

Thank you

Great match for our daughter! Wonderful and caring focus on our child's particular needs in her Spanish education. We greatly appreciate Rita's preparation kindness.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

My son Ishaan is very up to speed with Ms Rita’s lessons in Spanish in 9th grade , we are fortunate for having her teaching Spanish to Ishaan. Spanish is not our native language, but we encourage Ishaan to learn Spanish so that he can in future mix up in diversity in work space, the way it clicked with Ms Rita is awesome as she has an eloquent way of teaching that takes the fear of learning a new language away from the student.
