Howard University (Spanish)
I am a recent college graduate and a true lover of language and world cultures. I have studied Spanish traditionally and independently for many years and now work as a freelance translator. In 2012, I was able to put my years of study to the test when I enrolled into a cultural exchange program in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. There, I solidified my Spanish skills over the four months that I stayed there through my host family and matriculation at two local universities, as well as working at a local NGO. When tutoring students I employ various techniques to make the subject matter more relatable to the student, enabling them to learn without a monotonous experience. For example, through music and film students are able to see how certain phrases in different contexts are used all while being entertained. This method makes the vocabulary more relevant and therefore easier to retain.
Whether you need help with pronunciation, grammar, verb conjugations, cultural clarifications or just need to improve conversation, we will work together until your needs are met.
Please note that no student or parent will be billed for a lesson that does not satisfy their needs. I encourage constructive criticism so that all students can reach their goals.
I make every effort to be flexible with time, but it is limited. Please let me know at least 48 hours prior to a lesson if it must be cancelled or rescheduled.
I am able to travel for lessons and also available online through video chat. I look forward to hearing from you and helping you on your way to becoming a Spanish speaker! ¡Nos vemos!

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.
