Western Michigan University (SpanishandSpeechPath)
Calvin College (Master's)
I am a bilingual speech-language pathologist who works for a public school district with a large Spanish-speaking population.
I got into speech-language pathology because I love language and languages. I lived in Querétaro, Mexico for a year and a half where I taught English individually, in small groups, and in university classes. I speak Spanish fluently. I love teaching and tutoring Spanish because #1 it's fun and I'm nerdy, but also because I would not speak it so well had it not been for the patience and kindness of so many Spanish speakers helping me!
I have an understanding not only of the Spanish language but of linguistics and how language works as a whole. This provides me with many ways to think about and explain the complexities of another language.
I have over 5 years of experience working with children with special needs in different settings. I have a Master's degree in speech-language pathology and provide speech therapy full time at work.
I love the Spanish language, and I love teaching and tutoring others who are trying to learn it! Please contact me for more information or to schedule lessons. I am a bilingual speech-language pathologist who works for a public school district with a large Spanish-speaking population.

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.
