About Sandra

I am enthusiastic about teaching others about the language, its culture, and instilling a love for learning about communities other than the students' own. I am a native speaker of Spanish and have studied abroad in Toledo, Spain. My family is from El Salvador, so coupled with my experiences comes a passion for sharing my heritage.

What I love about tutoring is the ability to assess the needs of students and cater my instruction to them. I always strive to look for activities that suit the students' learning needs and increase their potential for understanding the Spanish language in a real world setting. Ultimately, I hope to expose students to differing dialects and customs of the Spanish speaking realm.

As I have mentioned in my bio, I am a high school Spanish teacher ready to spread awareness about learning another language and immersing oneself in the target culture. I am a native speaker. I studied Spanish language and literature with a K-12 licensure at Northern Illinois University, in addition to a minor in Latino and Latin American Studies. I have a 4.0 GPA in the major as well as a 3.7 overall GPA. I am versed in ACTFL and World Readiness Standards to create culturally meaningful content.

I would love to be of any help and I encourage students to learn any language to help them in the future. Hopefully, I can be the person to assist in the learning of Spanish.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
