Indiana University Southeast (Spanish)
Tired of struggling through Spanish class? Tired of struggling with overly complicated grammar lessons? I can help. I offer straightforward grammatical explanations IN ENGLISH to help you develop the language framework that you need in order to speak the language.
I possess a Bachelor's degree in Spanish and a Bachelor's degree in Latin American Studies. I have years of teaching and tutoring experience. I plan lessons with reading, writing, listening and speaking exercises. Most importantly, I plan lessons that students can UNDERSTAND.
Too often, Spanish instructors insist on speaking only Spanish during lessons - even for grammatical explanations. Sometimes students aren't even allowed to ask a question in English! I disagree with this method. My teaching method develops a strong understanding of the grammatical framework of Spanish before immersion in the language. My method lends itself to an enjoyable learning process and more confident speakers.
I expect the student to be prepared for lessons questions ready! The student and I will work from their current course curriculum and I will supplement that curriculum as I see fit.
If you are interested in scheduling lessons, please send me a message with the student's name and why the student is in need of Spanish lessons. Also include the student's schedule availability. Generally, I am available to give lessons on evenings and weekends. Tired of struggling through Spanish class? Tired of struggling with overly complicated grammar lessons? I can help.

Students that cancel a lesson within 24 hours of the start time of that scheduled lesson will be charged for a one hour lesson.
My freshman daughter has been struggling with Spanish and she thought Lauren was a really good tutor. She helped my daughter with some conjugation issues.
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.
I possess a bachelor's degree in Spanish and a bachelor's degree in Latin American studies. I graduated from college with highest distinction and was selected as Outstanding Spanish Major from my graduating class. I have participated in study abroad programs in Costa Rica, Spain and the Dominican Republic.
