About Savannah


Bio

With a B.A., M.A., Ph.D. coursework, and 10 years of experience teaching and tutoring Spanish at the university level, language tutoring is what I do most. With a goal-oriented approach, I can help you see real results from our meetings. I am positive and upbeat, and my students love my enthusiasm. Let me help you or your child feel great about learning again!

When I'm not tutoring, I love to rock climb and practice yoga. I'm an avid reader and a DIY-project-doer. I also spend a lot of time...

SPANISH:
After years of teaching in college and private classrooms, I know what it takes for you to get where you want to be with your language studies. At our first lesson, we will determine exactly where you want to go with your language: Are you working towards a test? Just looking to speak conversationally? Planning to travel (someday!)? Taking a class? Once we know exactly what you want, we can focus on what's most relevant--grammar for those who are testing and in classes, proficiency for conversation including a large vocabulary and basic grammar, or specialized vocabulary for the workplace, traveler or corporate client.

Individual tutoring:
Once needs are assessed, I help students determine the right material to use, whether it is a workbook, their current textbook or material of my own. I also utilize media including music and videos to help create a more dynamic tutoring environment.

Small groups:
I love tutoring in small groups, and can negotiate the hourly rate per student for larger students. Having accountability and partners who share your goals is helpful and can make classes more playful and fun.

Corporate classes:
Lunch and learns and corporate classes are my specialty. I will meet with your representative to find out your goals (travel, specific vocabulary, general proficiency), and develop appropriate materials to help your employees or clients achieve success, improve business, and increase moral.

Very patient tutor

Savannah has been extremely patient with me throughout our tutoring sessions. She has been able to explain things in ways that I am able to understand when things seem unclear. I look forward to our sessions because I always learn something new.

Savannah is Great!

I recently contacted Savannah through Wyzant to help my daughter with high school Spanish. Savannah arrived on time, and she was very patient and helpful. My daughter said she learned more from one hour with Savannah than she has in the last several months at school. She's a great tutor, and I highly recommend her.
