Hello!

Thank you for stopping by to read my profile!! Learning a new language can be fun, but also a challenge. I like to make it fun, simple, and practical. Hopefully, after reading a little about me you will find that I am able to help you. I graduated from the University of Sagrado Corazon in San Juan, Puerto Rico with a B.A. in Secondary Spanish Education. My education is designed to teach the heritage speaker, so I have a very intricate working knowledge of the language. Furthermore, in San Juan, my day-to-day living for seven years was in Spanish. This means that I am able to teach "real world" Spanish by pointing out regional and cultural differences in the spoken language that goes beyond the general textbook lessons.

Learning Spanish as a Second Language

Since I completed my degree completely immersed in the language, my accent is near-native. This means that I offer a very authentic learning experience. Moreover, this also means that I understand the struggle and confusion that come with learning a second language. I am familiar with the common pronunciation mistakes that we make as native English speakers and how to correct them. I also know the things that most often confuse us when conjugating verbs--the subjunctive, for example, or confusing the English gerund when we should use the infinitive in Spanish. I offer a free first class which includes a diagnostic. This allows you to evaluate me and for me to evaluate your level of Spanish and your goals for learning. After that, we will discuss a plan of action and set attainable goals. Most importantly, your personal goals are very important to me. I will work to make sure you reach them by doing all in my power. I am very patient, perceptive and persistent.

Tutoring/Teaching High School Spanish

Spanish

I completed my Secondary Education Spanish certification while living in San Juan, Puerto Rico, at La Universidad del Sagrado Corazon. This means that I earned my degree while completely immersed in the language all four years. My current students include medical doctors, missionaries and high school students. Whether you would like to help bring your high school age or college student's grade up or maintain it, we can get there together. I can help explain and practice memorization of difficult vocabulary and distinguish small subtleties that can make the difference between going from a "C" to a "B" or from a "B" to an "A." I specialize in pronunciation, reading comprehension and Spanish literature. I am flexible to work one-on-one in person or online. Please ask my availability. If learning to speak Spanish for the purpose of vacation, missionary trips or professional advancement is your goal, then you may find my teaching style most beneficial. It is very conversational and we focus on the vocabulary most necessary for your goal. From the very first day we speak in Spanish, clarifying points of grammar and nuances in vocabulary when necessary (some countries use words that are not used in other countries). My goal is that you will learn to think in Spanish, rather than attempt to translate from English to Spanish or vice-versa. I offer classes in individual or group settings. The class is focused on speaking so that you will be able to converse starting the first day. If you are not into learning complicated grammar rules in order to speak the language, this class is for you! You will learn to speak Spanish and not learn ABOUT Spanish.

English

Literature

Literature

My experience is largely Spanish literature. Comprehending and interpreting poems, short stories and essays from Caribbean and Latin American authors has been my area of study for the last seven years. If you are studying at the A.P. level in high school, have chosen Spanish as a major or minor I can help you to dig into your texts and expand your comprehension. Often this is accomplished simply through discussion of the text, getting to know the author, understanding the historical context and discovering contextual clues that broaden understanding. As preparation for your A.P. exam this becomes vitally important. Reading comprehension helps with your writing. As we openly discuss the text you improve listening and writing a short reflection gives you the opportunity to practice your writing skills as I help you to correct common writing errors if necessary.

History

Bible Studies

Bible Studies

I teach a Bible Study to both English and Spanish speaking congregations that examines the historical evidence of Jesus, his purpose, life, work, resurrection and why He uniquely fulfills the role of Messiah. The class lasts for eight weeks and examines the writings of the Bible itself and those of several scholars on both sides of the debate by looking at historical data. By the end of the class, the student will be able to explain the historical evidence for Jesus. I can also do a one day workshop at your choice of location. If you email me I will send a syllabus. As a Graduate of Sacred Heart University, I took as a minor the life of Christ. I have also completed certification in Biblical Studies and extensive research on Jesus from the historical perspective. I hold to traditional conservative Christian views regarding Jesus and his person. I am a regular Bible teacher in my local congregation and have held pastorates at two Churches.
