About Carla

I love the feeling of accomplishment that comes from knowing that I can be instrumental in helping others achieve their educational goals. Ultimately, I hope my students will be engaged and challenged in every lesson without feeling overwhelmed.

I enjoy working with children and adults and have experience with young students with ADHD. I specialize in Spanish (conversation, reading and writing) as well as Elementary and Middle School grades (homework help, reading, writing and math).

As a fully bilingual and native Spanish speaker who graduated in Colombia. I am qualified to teach reading, writing and conversational Spanish. I have been tutoring Spanish, since I was in college and enjoy working with children and adults. Most of all, I like to make learning the language fun and practical. My friendly personality and positive attitude come with me to every session.

I have a Master's degree in Communication Studies and am well qualified to assist in writing and proofreading assignments. I enjoy teaching young readers and hope to transmit my love for reading to my students and instill in them this lifetime skill.

I always focus on student's individual needs and believe that through hard work and practice any goal can be achieved. When extra practice is necessary I will assign homework for additional help and will provide you with periodic assessments and progress reports. I am always open to any concerns and available via e-mail for any questions.

Approved subjects
