About Rita


Bio

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 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!

Kind, patient, and very encouraging!

I am looking forward to our next meeting! I already feel like I have learned so much in the first lesson. We had a great conversation and she helped me work through verb tenses as we spoke. It is exactly what I am looking for!

The best of the best!

Rita is an exceptional teacher who gave my son so much confidence in his Spanish 3 Honors class. We are beyond blessed to have found such a wonderful tutor to help our son get through the last seven weeks of Spanish 3, and with a smile!

Logan, 2 lessons with Rita

Knowledgeable Tutor

Rita has made learning another language so easy! She is patient and makes it comfortable pronouncing unfamiliar words out loud. Always looking forward to the next lesson!

LORE, 2 lessons with Rita

She is Amazing - ella es asombrosa!

Rita was able to tell, within 5 minutes, what kind of training works best for me. She made the training fun. Kind of reminded me a mathematical equation where you just keep writing down equations that bring you to a solution that reminds us chaos does not exist. I look forward to our next session.

Rita has been wonderful. She went the extra mile to coordinate work plans with my son's teacher to ensure he would be ready for the next school year. We couldn't be more pleased.

Super Spanish Tutor!

Matt returned from his first tutor session with Ms. Rita with such enthusiasm and greater confidence in his ability to learn Spanish. Ms. Rita provided neat techniques and additional resources to help him learn Spanish. Matt's words, "She is really awesome!"

Spanish II

I was impressed with Rita's education. She makes complex topics very simple. If you are looking for the best Spanish tutor, I suggest taking her into consideration. Money well spent.

Knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and punctual

Rita has been a wonderful tutor. She shows great enthusiasm in teaching Spanish, and is great at encouraging her students. Attending tutoring with her is never a drag, but is rather an hour that I greatly look forward to. I would recommend her to anyone interested in learning another language!
