I love language. I love learning it, teaching it, communicating with it, noticing how people use it, comparing it, writing it, and singing it. It's fascinating to me.
I learned Spanish in Spain, where I lived for a year when I was 20. Then I majored in it in college. I lived in Nicaragua for almost 2 years. Since then I've spent many years teaching ESL to Mexican and Puerto Rican immigrants. This has given me pretty good exposure to the different accents and differences in language usage between the Spanish-speaking countries. I also have an ESL endorsement from a graduate program at WSU.
I have many years of experience teaching ESL and many years working back and forth between English and Spanish, and understanding the fundamentals of grammar in both languages.
My bachelor's degree is Spanish Ed. I've had years of living in two different Spanish-speaking countries, as well as working with, and for, Spanish-speakers in Southwest Detroit.
Learning language is really different than any other kind of learning, especially once you're over 12 years old. It can be a challenge. When you find yourself actually communicating with someone in another language it's unbelievably satisfying. We're at a cross-roads in this country. It's time for Americans to catch up with the rest of the world and learn a second language. It's amazing how much you will learn about your own language when you start learning a second one.

Julie was excellent. She had an ease with Jonathan and made him feel very comfortable. I love her teaching style. I would recommend her as an ESL tutor.
Julie met with my 10th grade son, assessed where he is in Spanish, and worked with him to improve. He was very happy with the tutoring and we are continuing lessons with Julie.
