Dear Students and Parents,

!Buenos Dias!

It is my pleasure to give you tutoring assistance in your studies in Spanish to help you improve your knowledge of the Spanish language.

I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish from the University of Maryland College Park.
I also took Spanish courses from UMBC including a study abroad course in Salamanca, Spain.
I studied in Salamanca, Spain twice; the first time was for a five week course from UMBC, which was a multi-subject course of Spanish history, literature, politics and culture. During this first course of study, I stayed with a Spanish family who spoke no English by regulation of UMBC. I was under a regimen of strict and total immersion of the Spanish language. I had professors from UMBC and La Universidad de Salamanca.

My second study in Salamanca was for one complete semester and I studied at El Colegio de España. I studied architecture, Spanish literature, folklore, grammar, and history. I stayed with the same family that was provided for me by UMBC. So, I studied in Spain for a total of 9 1/2 months. This experience helped me to gain more and more vocabulary, conversational skills, a knowledge of Spanish culture and its history as well as some lifelong friendships with Spanish people I still hold today. I have always been attracted to the Hispanic culture, which includes Spain, Central and South America because of their festive and outgoing nature. I have been a member of the Peruvian Club of Baltimore for 30+ years. I love Hispanic music because they know how to get into the rhythm with pizazz.

I have experience teaching Spanish at Woodbridge Elementary school. I used Spanish textbooks such as “A Concept Approach to Spanish” by Zenia Sacks Da Silva and I made handouts appropriate to the lessons. My goal is to help the student improve vocabulary, grammar and knowledge of Spanish culture. The Spanish language has many root words with words that stem from these words which makes it easier to memorize vocabulary. Spanish grammar follows the rules more consistently than English, so that makes creating sentences easier to understand. I was a program director at Woodbridge Elem. where I coordinated many multicultural programs to teach students Hispanic culture. I have many other textbooks to use for exercise materials such as” ¿Habla Español? Essentials” by Teresa Méndez-Faith. If a student has challenges with homework assignments, he/she can bring the assigned textbook or handout material to a tutoring session and I can work with the student to help improve his/her skills.

I look forward to working with you in the future.

Sinceramente,
Sra. Elizabeth D.

Excellent Tutor!

My son is going to take Spanish 2 and needs a refresher of Spanish 1. He thinks she's an excellent tutor and explains things well, knows what she's doing and is very nice. He is looking forward to future tutoring sessions with her.

Knowledge, Professional, and Patient

Elizabeth is worth every penny. She is engaging, fun, and leaves you wanting to learn more. She puts you at ease and encourages you at step. Excellent tutor!!!!

Keith, 4 lessons with Elizabeth

Got started quick

I hired Elizabeth to tutor my twins. I knew they needed help but I didn't know what to tell her. Elizabeth jumped right in and communicated with my boys and got them started.

Ann, 1 lesson with Elizabeth

Very knowledgeable

Today was our first meeting with Elizabeth and our son came back with nothing but great things to say about her.

Vandy, 1 lesson with Elizabeth

Patient, professional, organized, nice person

Spanish. She really cares about the student needs. I told her that I would need to improve my Spanish to get a job at a bank and she brought me a list of bank industry terminologies.

Aloisio, 1 lesson with Elizabeth

Great Tutor!

My 11 yr old daughter loves Mrs. Elizabeth! She is very knowledgeable and caring. My daughter really looks forward to her sessions. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a Spanish Tutor!

Neitra, 14 lessons with Elizabeth

Great personality for tutoring

We had our first tutoring session with Elizabeth and it went very well. My daughter was skeptical about tutoring but she really enjoyed her lesson. Elizabeth covered a lot of Spanish content within 45 minutes. I will definitely hire Elizabeth for future lessons.

Shawan, 2 lessons with Elizabeth

Very creative!

Lizzy was a great Spanish tutor for my 4 year old daughter. Every week she developed a unique lesson and tailored it to my daughter's interests (mostly fairy tales at the time). She was great at infusing Spanish vocabulary and culture into each lesson. They read, played games, and even danced. I could tell she spent a lot of time preparing each lesson and she always left interactive review materials to work on during the week, which my daughter still uses to this day. Lizzy was just so creative and fun! I highly recommend her for preschool age children.
