About Leida

I have 5 years teaching experience in Language Arts and Literature at the middle school level. I am a native Spanish Speaker. I earned my High School and an Associate's degree in Guatemala. I hold a Bachelors in Psychology and a Master's degree in Rehabilitation Counseling. I have spent a good part of my adult life working abroad in Spanish-speaking countries. In addition, my experience with Spanish includes a certificate in Medical Interpretation English/Spanish. I have experience teaching foreign languages in foreign countries, and I have worked as a Medical interpreter and translator English/Spanish.

I am a patient, detailed and goal oriented tutor, who knows that many of the challenges faced by learners of a second language often relate to lack of practice. As a teacher/tutor I am interested in students practicing vocabulary and putting their new skill to use. Languages are a dynamic thing and you must use it to gain the skill. My time with students is spent both working and learning the rules of the new language but also bringing to the new skill to life by using it in conversation and interactions. Each lesson is planned taking into account individual needs and differences. As I tutor, I pay close attention to those needs and will adjust the flow of content and practice to the student's ability because every student is unique.

Online tutoring worked out great

I was unsure if online tutoring would work for my daughter but it actually worked out great. Leida engaged my daughter in conversation to help her learn and practice the vocabulary she needs to know for an upcoming test. My daughter enjoyed the lesson and Leida's style of teaching. When her first lesson ended, my daughter told me she wanted to work with Leida again. Getting my daughter engag
