About Christine

Are you interested in learning a second language? Does your child need assistance in his or her Spanish class? Are you a business owner or employee looking to better communicate with your Spanish-speaking co-workers and customers? Are you planning to travel abroad and want to sharpen your Spanish skills? If you have answered "Yes" to any of the above questions, then I am the Spanish instructor for you.

I started learning Spanish over twenty years ago. By learning a new language, a whole new world was opened to me. I studied Spanish in college and spent a summer in Spain to enhance my Spanish skills. I have seven years of full-time teaching experience at the high school level, including instruction in Spanish 1, Spanish 2, Spanish 3, and Spanish 3 Pre-AP. I also served as a translator at many school conferences so that Spanish-speaking parents were aware of the school's concerns for their children. I also have experience as a part time tutor through Sylvan Learning Center, and over two years of private tutoring experience via WyzAnt in the Bel Air area. I have a current Professional Eligibility Certificate to teach Spanish at the Secondary level in Maryland.

I use multiple strategies to ensure that all of my students are learning. With a focus on both grammar rules and activities that develop fluency, I help students to not only understand the structure of the Spanish language but also to communicate effectively. I understand the complexity in learning a new language, and I can assist my students with strategies to succeed.

I can assist elementary, middle, high school and college students. I can also work with retirees, business owners, and other adults looking to improve their Spanish skills.
