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

Joyous! Yes, that is the word he used

Rita is awesome! My son enjoys working with her. He likes her spirit. She is very responsive and communicative and always follows up with additional documentation on what they did. I highly recommend her!!!

Ms Rita was excellent teacher

Ms. Rita is so polite and a dedicated teacher. My son was not a big fan of Spanish when he learned it in Middle school. Ms. Rita went over the homework. prepared the quiz and tests, and practiced with a fun way of finding words and catching the conversation with him. He was an A all the time in high school. I couldn't be happier. I will definitely come back next year.

knowledgeable and encouraging and amazing

We asked Rita to assist in getting my daughter through an entire Spanish book over the summer to prepare her for this Fall. Not only did she manage to do that , but with great energy, learning enhancements and willingness to give additional work when needed so all goals could be reached. Rita is the best! My daughter just loved her!

Kind and knowledgeable tutor

My son had a trial Spanish lesson with Ms. Rita for (high school) Spanish 3 support for the coming year. My daughter also sat in to observe as she is considering taking AP. They both loved Ms Rita’s warm kind, demeanor, her preparedness. Thank you!

Vinu, 8 lessons with Rita

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
