About Sheila

I graduated from the University of Colorado, Boulder. There, I earned a Bachelor of Language and Arts for International Spanish for the Professions. As I move towards a permanent career, I would like to use my skills to help those wanting to learn Spanish. Through my education and travel background, I can not only tutor in the Spanish language but the culture as well. It is through experience that I have gained extensive Spanish exposure.

I have lived in these Hispanic areas:
-Buenos Aires, Argentina
-Mendoza, Argentina
-Bariloche, Argentina
-Barcelona, Spain
-San Juan Puerto Rico

I have traveled in South and North America, Central America, and Europe.

I have professionally worked with Spanish as: Manager's Assistant at an immigrant law firm, an interpreter at an Affordable Housing Agency, an intern at a Puerto Rican advertising firm, and a bilingual snowboard instructor.

I will pair learning methods I practiced throughout my studies with technology to aid in learning capabilities. My teaching approach is case specific. Every student learns in their own manner. I will create a lesson plan unique to each student's needs. Learning a new language should be fun! My goal for each session will be to teach while maintaining an exciting learning atmosphere.
