About Denise

Hello My name is Denise. I have an extensive Spanish language background which includes a Bachelors degree in Spanish and one in Latin American Studies. I have studied in various Spanish speaking countries and have also lived and studied in Cali, Colombia, South America. My tutoring experience encompasses tutoring ESL and Spanish in college; teaching elementary age students Spanish; and volunteering teaching ESL through Minnesota Literacy Council.

I have had a passion for Spanish and the Latin American Culture since I was 13 years old. It is this passion that has allowed me to excel in languages. Learning a second language was never easy for me, just ask my high school teacher, but I persevered and now excel in it. It is this passion which I wish to share and with it a better understanding of Spanish and English.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ESL/ESOL

My experience includes volunteering teaching English in Japan and Colombia in a group and individual settings while I lived there. In the past I also volunteered with the Minnesota Literacy program at Guadalupe. I recently passed the Oral Proficiency Interview at Century College with a Superior rating in English.

Spanish

I have a BA in Spanish and Latin American culture. This allows me not only to teach the language, but also the culture. In addition I have lived and studied in Colombia and visited Mexico and Spain several times. I have tutored various ages and have created tailored lessons depending on the needs of my students. Students are unique and so is the way they learn.

Denise, you're the best!

My daughter gives me clear and positive feedback about her sessions with you. She is still trying to get comfortable with speaking fluently but you make it so much easier for her! Thanks again, Denise!
