About Beth

Hola, I am Professor Beth. I have a passion to teach Spanish at any level. I have enjoyed teaching Spanish in all of the private Christian schools my daughters attended during their elementary years in school. Then took on other teaching positions including tutoring and teaching in the Minnetonka School district.
At Calvary Memorial Christian School I taught 2-8 grades developing my own curriculum. Then at Chapel Hill Academy I taught 9th grade Spanish to 7th and 8th graders. In the 7th grade class I taught the first half of 9th grade Spanish, with an emphasis on pronunciation, verb conjugation and sentence structure. In the 8th grade class we finished up the 9th grade text and worked more on being comfortable with spoken Spanish by my encouraging them to speak in dialogs, and to make up plays and skits.

Wanting to work as an independent contractor, from 2001 to 2003 I taught Medical Spanish to health care practitioners at St. Francis Medical Clinics in the Southwest area .I developed most of my own curriculum and used a textbook with listening tapes designed for medical practitioners. I placed learning emphasis on verbal skills in understanding and using medical phrases. I also taught community education courses and Spanish for Youth. I also did weekly tutoring for individuals, small groups and tutored students at Minnetonka High School.

Then I wanted to take on another challenge and taught1-3 year Spanish teacher at Mayer Lutheran High School. I applied and taught Spanish using the Buen Viaje textbooks along with supplemental materials. Using the same materials as Minnetonka High School I brought the students up to National Standards. The highlight of the year is celebrating Cinco de Mayo by going to an authentic Mexican Restaurant and having them order and nonspeaking to the Hispanic wait staff. They are also tested in their Restaurant Spanish.

I taught 9-12 graders Spanish at Lions Gate in Bloomington, Minnesota. As of late I was a long term sub at Breck and currently am a substitute teacher at Blake and I continue to tutor Spanish at coffee shops around the Twin Cities.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,

Beth

Approved subjects

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.

Up to date I have been working as a contract teacher and taught Spanish in 3 private schools grades pre-k through 12h grades. The past year was another exciting and dynamic year for me as I taught 9-12 graders Spanish at Lions Gate in Bloomington, Minnesota.

Currently I am tutoring Spanish.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Beth is amazing!!

Our son has been working with Beth for just over a month now and the difference is astounding. Spanish is our son's least favorite subject, but he is happy to work with Beth because she can explain things so succinctly and in a way that he can remember while in class. His confidence is increasing and his understanding of what's happening in class is much higher. Beth speaks the language of "mi
