Bio

I am a native Spanish speaker and grew up speaking only Spanish at home, but I was born in the United States. My family is from the Dominican Republic and I speak Latin American Spanish. My passion for learning Spanish and Latin American culture grew more and more, and so I decided to double major in Spanish and Latin American and Caribbean Studies with a minor in Education (College of the Holy Cross, 2018).

I am a native Spanish speaker and grew up speaking only Spanish at home, but I was born in the United States. My family is from the Dominican Republic and I speak Latin American Spanish. My passion for learning Spanish and Latin American culture grew more and more, and so I decided to double major in Spanish and Latin American and Caribbean Studies with a minor in Education (College of the Holy Cross, 2018). During my time in undergrad, I decided to study abroad in Buenos Aires, Argentina to better understand the Argentinean accent. In addition, I have travelled to Managua, Nicaragua and La Paz, Bolivia to learn more about different cultures in Latin America. While my major focused on literature, as parts of my studies, I enrolled in linguistics courses to learn, improve and help others better their Spanish accent. While it might seem impossible at first, it is possible and with practice and work , one's Spanish accent can improve.

My desire to teach and help others has continued into my career. I am currently pursuing my Masters of Science in Education from the University of Pennsylvania (May 2020), while simultaneously teaching at an independent all-boys school. I currently teach Spanish 1 and Spanish 2 in an immersive language classroom. This means all classes are held in Spanish and this allows for students to constantly listen to a native Spanish speaker and practice pronunciation and listening skills. These first two-levels of Spanish are the foundation for the language and are very grammar focused, and so I have experience teaching Spanish to students who have had no exposure. Overall, I am very excited to teach Spanish; as a native Speaker it is part of my culture and lifestyle, and I look forward to sharing that with others.

I am a native Spanish speaker, I currently teach Spanish at an independent school, I majored in Spanish (B.A) and studied abroad in Argentina (1 semester), as well as visited other Spanish-speaking countries. I am member of Sigma Delta Pi (National Collegiate Hispanic Honor Society - high honors in the major).

My passion for Spanish is in my blood (literally as a native Spanish speaker) and I love to help others learn and improve their Spanish. Learning Spanish should be fun, relevant and engaging and that is the service I provide. I look forward to helping you make your Spanish come alive and reflect authentic scenarios and experiences.
