Bio

With administrations focusing intently on STEM and high stakes testing, language learning often gets displaced from our list of priorities. Students begin falling behind and even failing important language classes that are sometimes necessary to get them into a good college or university program. Sometimes parents and young adults don't know where to turn for help or don't know what to ask in order to push themselves, or their students to the next level.

With administrations focusing intently on STEM and high stakes testing, language learning often gets displaced from our list of priorities. Students begin falling behind and even failing important language classes that are sometimes necessary to get them into a good college or university program. Sometimes parents and young adults don't know where to turn for help or don't know what to ask in order to push themselves, or their students to the next level.
Fortunately, I have strong theoretical knowledge in how language learning works. I can help you or your student recognize the troublesome areas and turn their failure into success. Sometimes it's just a matter of learning techniques for vocabulary memorization; and other times it might be having to view language learning from a perspective different from their own. I have taught beginning French courses at the University of South Florida, and I have attended many master's level courses on language acquisition and pedagogy. I am ready to take you or your student to the next level in French, Spanish, or ESOL! Contact me today!

I am in the final process of receiving an ESOL endorsement from the University of South Florida, Tampa. Part of the endorsement requires the equivalency of 300 in-service hours of working on scaffolding techniques to assist English language-learners bridge the unknown to the new target language areas. After Spring 2015 I will have satisfied these requirements.

French

I received a BA from Gonzaga University in French language and civilization, December 2002. I am currently in the second year of a Master's in Teaching Foreign Language Education program at the University of South Florida, Tampa. For the past two semesters I have been teaching French 1 and French 2, beginning level college French at the university. I have successfully completed the Graduate Instructional Methods course as well as the Foreign Language in Elementary School Methods course. I am in the process of completing my practicum and Secondary Methods course work towards my degree. I am slated to graduate with a MAT FLE Spring 2016.
Spanish

Spanish

My formal education in Spanish is limited to high school as I decided to pursue French in post secondary education. I grew up in a bilingual home. My parents were born and raised in Puerto Rico. I have spoken Spanish all my life. I have extensive travel in Puerto Rico. I spent many summers living there with my family. While I focused my formal education in French, I did not abandon my Spanish language. I read, write, and speak Spanish fluently. Plus, I keep up with my culture. I understand the different nuances of language between the various Spanish dialects and am dedicated to helping my students develop a sense of their own Spanish voice.
