About Olivia

Hola! Qué tal?

Me llamo Olivia - como te llamas? :)

My love for the culture and the people who speak Spanish influenced me to become proficient in the language. From a early age I knew I wanted to learn Spanish I'd love to use my Spanish degree from Emory University to become a tutor! What makes me a great tutor? I have not only the skills necessary and a good understanding of nuances in the Spanish language, but I also understand the culture very well. As I tell my friends and family on a regular basis when they ask how I learned Spanish so quickly and so well, I tell them it was fun! In high school, my Spanish teacher ensured that we had fun while learning the language by doing skits, reading books and articles, watching movies and tv, listening to music, etc. all in Spanish! Mastery of a language is made a lot easier when you incorporate the culture of that language into instruction.

I went on in high school to be selected as the only student from my county to attend the Georgia Governor's Honors Program , and there I went for Spanish. The following year, I took an 10-day immersion trip to various cities in Mexico and upon my return, I attained a 5 on the AP Spanish test and I then majored in Spanish in college at Emory University. I've had to use Spanish as a medical interpreter for Grady Hospital in Atlanta, and I've also worked at the High Museum of Art as a bilingual tour guide for the Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera exhibit. Because of my work in the Latino community at Emory and in the greater Atlanta area, I was the only recipient of the 2015 Award for Excellence in Community Engagement from Emory's Department of Spanish and Portuguese! Additionally, I was selected to serve on the student Majors Advisory Committee for the Department of Spanish and Portuguese. All of these accomplishments make me a fantastic choice to tutor anyone, regardless of age, in the Spanish language!

I'm able to tutor up to 25 hours a week, all months of the year. I'd prefer mornings as of right now, but my schedule is always flexible!

I'd love to help increase your Spanish abilities! Please feel free to contact me regarding lessons, and if you'd like to see my Spanish portfolio, just ask!
