About Stacie

Hola, I have always enjoyed learning about Spanish culture; I studied Spanish language and literature at the University of Maryland College Park. During my time there I studied abroad in Alcala de Henares, Spain where I lived with a family and was immersed in the Spanish culture.

After graduating, I started teaching Spanish. I've taught introductory and intermediate Spanish for various grade levels. During lessons, I focus on both Spanish grammar, vocabulary, literature and history. I feel that it is extremely important that we speak another language other than English and understand the customs of countries other than our own.

I speak Spanish fluently, though it is not my first language. I have studied Spanish in school since the 6th grade. I understand the difficulties that come along with learning another language and through my time in the classroom, I've learned of various techniques that help students learn Spanish, regardless of their level of Spanish. I am very passionate about the Spanish both the language and culture and I enjoy sharing this passion with students of various levels who are eager to learn not Spanish grammar and vocabulary, but the culture and history of the many Spanish speaking countries. I have always felt that it was extremely important to know another language, not only for for career options but to make connections within the world. The one thing that I learned while living in Spain, is that even thought we have many differences, we are more alike than we are different, we just need to be able to communicate with one another.

Knowledgeable, caring, engaging

So far, 2 lessons in with Stacie and I can tell she is an experienced, top-notch tutor who loves Spanish. She keeps my 16 y/o Spanish 3 son on task and is very encouraging. She told him to link his interests to Spanish. For example, she advised him to watch basketball games on a Spanish speaking station and to listen to Spanish radio, just so he can stay engaged and become more conversational.
