About Traci


Bio

Hi there! I'm Traci, and I have a passion for education, teaching, and learning. I hold a bachelors degree in Spanish and linguistics. During my years in college, I had professors who went above and beyond to ensure that I had the best quality of learning. They were quick to answer any questions I had and were there for additional support outside of the classroom. I have developed this same trait for my students if they have questions or concerns.

Hi there! I'm Traci, and I have a passion for education, teaching, and learning. I hold a bachelors degree in Spanish and linguistics. During my years in college, I had professors who went above and beyond to ensure that I had the best quality of learning. They were quick to answer any questions I had and were there for additional support outside of the classroom. I have developed this same trait for my students if they have questions or concerns.

I learned Spanish at age seven in elementary school. As I grew older it was clear I had a niche for it. In college I met many different people from Latin America as well as Spain and adapted to their unique speaking styles. I also worked at a Hispanic community center and worked with Spanish-speaking individuals. In addition, I had the opportunity to live and study abroad in Spain a few years ago and have since adapted my speaking style to Castilian Spanish. It was during this time that my love of the language and culture became paramount.

My teaching journey began seven years ago as an ESL instructor. I taught English to a young Mexican man who wanted to improve his English. It was great a exchange because while I was helping him with English, he was helping me to become more fluent in Spanish. We cultivated a friendship that went beyond our classes. He has since moved back to Mexico and we often kept in touch. From there I gained more traction with students and have taught individuals from all over the world. With respect to Spanish, I began teaching at a K-12 charter school where I taught students in grades 7-12. It was there that my love of teaching amplified. I then started working at another K-12 charter school as a Spanish support teacher and paraprofessional. If there was any translation or interpretation needed, I was there to help my colleagues. I am now a TEFL and Spanish instructor for children and adults.

My first teaching experience started six years ago when I taught a young man from Mexico. He was looking to improve his English speaking skills. During the duration of our classes, he became fluent in his speech, knowledgeable in his vocabulary, and we even became close after he moved. We still kept in contact after our time together. This is a character trait that I bring to my students: building a rapport while learning and teaching and having fun all at once.

In my six years of education, I have helped speakers of other language master their usage of the English language. I have had students from all over the world and on different English levels. I use my own personal experience as a language learner to relate to my students who struggle with learning a language. I utilize Google images to practice vocabulary for my lower levels. With my intermediate/advanced level students, we read news articles, watch video clips, and have discussions based on what we have just watched/read. I have had optimal results from my students who have had lessons with me and they have satisfaction every time.

In my years at UM-Flint, I have taken classes pertaining to the construction and analysis of the English language. This includes grammar trees, constructing my own language, studying phonetics, phonology, morphology, semantics, etc. I also have experience in Spanish linguistics with respect to different dialects focusing on how they differentiate with one another. With English, I studied and analyzed different dialects of the many different variations of the language.

Sara, 2 lessons with Traci

Traci is an amazing tutor

Traci is an amazing tutor. I really enjoyed our session. We went over transcriptions for my upcoming exam and homework that my professor assigned for my class. We also went over the vowel sounds such as schwa and wedge. At the end we transcribed more words phonetically and wrote out the correct words which was a lot of fun and made me practice more for my exam. Thank you Traci for tutoring me.

Traci is awesome

Traci is doing an amazing job helping my daughter get caught up in Spanish - she is patient and does a lot to help her improve her speaking / word choice, as well as help her with her verbs. Most importantly, she has helped her improve her confidence in her Spanish class, where she went in a bit behind her peers.

A kind, knowledgeable, and exceptional tutor!

Mrs. Traci is a kind and intelligent tutor who is responsive to her students' specific individual needs. She takes the time to come up with innovative, fun solutions to learning a new language, which may be difficult at first. I am so happy I chose Mrs. Traci as my tutor as she takes the time to understand my goals, teach me in an engaging fun way, and have a great conversation with me! She is patient with the process and a good listener as to what I would like to accomplish. Throughout the class, Mrs. Traci made sure that I understood everything that was taught and was open to answering my questions. She did not rush me and was extremely attentive. Today was just my first class and I cannot wait to continue my journey in learning Spanish with Mrs. Traci. Before and after the session, Mrs. Traci responded to my messages extremely quickly and was understanding of my needs. She has helped me to work on vocabulary and pronunciation and has provided many resources for me to use. My parents and I are extremely happy for the opportunity to have her assist me in my Spanish learning. If you are looking for a Spanish tutor, Mrs. Traci is 100% the perfect choice for you!
