About Judd

Outside my 6 years of tutor experience, my passion for languages and sharing that passion is ultimately what makes me a great tutor. I understand that some students aren't interested in courses like Spanish. And that's where my ability to tutor differs from most people. I'm not just interested in helping someone get a better grade on their next Spanish exam; I want to see them get excited about the idea of being able to visit another country and engage in eye-opening conversations with locals. My plan is to make my students realize the usefulness of knowing another language, and expose them to all the benefits that come from it.

This transfer of excitement not only helps with better retention, but it can actually change how a student looks at the world and even how they view their other courses. My experience has taught me that getting a student to engage themselves in material as opposed to just studying material can create a huge difference. It's because of that reason that I've had students jump as many as 3 letter grades in the past.

I lived in Spain for 6 months while studying at their best ranked university, El Complutense. I was immersed in a room of Spanish natives where courses were all taught in Spanish. The experience was challenging, but rewarding as I became more proficient in Spanish than at any other point in my life.

Upon returning to Purdue University I enrolled in graduate level courses in syntax, and excelled in all my linguistic classes. I've taken 10 years worth of Spanish classes and tutored Spanish for more than half that time.

Anyone and everyone is more than welcome to contact me. I've tutored kids as young as 5 years old and students as old as 24. I'm patient and passionate and very easy to get along with. I understand that mastering a new language can be a daunting task, but I'm here to help!
