About Maggie

I've been working one-on-one with Spanish language students over the past 10 years, ranging from elementary though college-level material. No matter his or her familiarity with the language when we begin, I have worked tirelessly so s/he leaves with: a deeper understanding of the structure of the language; a more robust working vocabulary; and a profound appreciation of his or her own ability to learn.

Whether you're starting from scratch, dusting off the cobwebs of the pluperfect verb tense, or writing your senior thesis on Don Quixote, I'm eager to help you improve. I am confident that we can find the right learning style for you to master your Spanish abilities.

Together, we'll:

- Build your confidence in speaking, reading, and writing by practicing familiar material
- Increase your working vocabulary by introducing new and relevant words
- Expand your knowledge of verb tenses at a comfortable (but challenging) pace
- Master Spanish grammar rules, as well as the exceptions to the rules
- Improve your pronunciation, even rolling your R's!
- Empower your comprehension by reading and listening for context; if you aren't familiar with a word, what are clues to help you understand the underlying meaning?
- For more advanced students, we can focus on literary analysis of timeless works to provide you with a greater appreciation and understanding of the nuances of the Spanish language

You're welcome bring any school assignments/lessons you may need help with, or we can establish our own routine and lessons. I am more than happy to communicate our work and your progress to your teacher/professor.

As for me: I studied Spanish in a classroom setting for 12 years, so I have a deep knowledge of the building blocks of the language. After living in Spain for three months, I dove into my Spanish studies and, in 2009, received a bachelor's degree in Spanish literary studies from Occidental College (a rigorous liberal arts college in Los Angeles). In my free time, I continue to devour Hispanic literature and film; I am a sucker for Mariachi music and every type of Latin cuisine.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have worked one-on-one with a third grade student specifically in reading and writing. Meeting once a week, we improved her ability to spot read and write new words and reading comprehension. In addition, I have worked as a teaching assistant in a K-8 summer school program, teaching 40+ students from diverse backgrounds and varying leaning levels. Subjects included art, reading, writing, and computer skills.

SAS

I use SAS programming techniques on a near-daily basis for my full-time job. I have been writing my own SAS programs for nearly three years, learning techniques through SAS-instructed courses and my own research.

Excellent Teacher — Maggie is an excellent teacher. She is very open minded, creative, interested and quick witted. She seems very understanding and is very patient. We met for an hour and a half.
