About Alma

A little bit about me. I grew up in Veracruz, Mexico until I was five years old. My family moved to Kansas and enrolled me in Kindergarten two weeks later. I was fortunate to have a teacher that was patient and creative as she thought me the English language. Growing up in a bilingual household made me appreciate language and culture. I took formal Spanish courses throughout high-school and college. During college, I was a tutor in Finance, Economics and Spanish. Today, I continue to utilize my Spanish on a daily basis as a Multicultural Marketing Manager. Additionally, this past summer I took a ten week course on Spanish medical interpreting. Learning is a life-long process and a passion of mine.

I'm available to tutor Spanish (academic & conversational). My teaching style is flexible based on your language needs and learning style (e.g., visual, auditory, etc.). I have experience in working with students across multiple age groups (i.e., elementary school through adult education). I think learning should be fun. I will work with you to understand your goals to make sure that we create the best customized learning plan. Please contact me if you are interested in learning more. I look forward to hearing from you!

Spanish

I graduated magna cum laude from Kansas State University in Finance and Spanish. I successfully completed a 10 week bilingual medical interpreting course in June 2016. I am a Multicultural Marketing Manager and use my Spanish on a daily basis.

Very helpful for conversational Spanish

Alma was very helpful in getting me ready to go off to a Spanish speaking country for a year. She was so encouraging and thought of great topics to talk about. She would correct me on the spot so I knew what I needed to work on. I feel more confident in my Spanish and ready for my year in South America. Thank you!
