About Elizabeth

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.

Approved subjects

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 have at least six years experience teaching elementary age students as a volunteer. My four year college degree in Spanish gives me experience in reading, writing and speech in English and Spanish. I had courses in Sociology, English literature, Spanish literature, history, science and international culture which all require written composition papers using proper use of grammar, sentence structure and organization of material.


I am a college graduate with a degree in Castillian Spanish as a specialty but I can converse fluently with Castillian Spaniards and Latin American people. I belong to the Peruvian Club of Baltimore. I know how to speak, read and write Spanish fluently. I have also taught Spanish and tutored Spanish at various institutions.

Warm Hearted and Experienced — Ms. Eli has been tutoring my son Alexander for over 50 hours. She's such a warm hearted, cheerful and experienced tutor. Alexander is a high school student and was taking Spanish 101 to fulfill a high school credit. He found it very challenging to catch up with this college course, not to mention all the frustrations to learn Spanish as his first world language. Ms. Eli fully understood the situat ...
