Middlebury College Language School (Master's)
I have been teaching Spanish full time since 2005. I began my study of Spanish in middle and high school before majoring in Spanish during college. I now have a Masters Degree in Spanish. I have teaching experience in Pennsylvania, Connecticut and North Carolina. I teach levels 1-4. My inspiration to teach Spanish came from my high school teachers and I look forward to doing the same for my students. I enjoy working with the students because hearing and seeing the students make progress in their acquisition of Spanish is exciting. I especially think it is great when the students surprise themselves with the amount/type of information they have learned and their ability to communicate orally and in writing.
I work on four principles: speaking, reading, writing and listening. As an educator, I believe it is important that students experience Spanish all four ways. This provides the student with multiple opportunities to learn the material and supports their ability to communicate effectively in a variety of settings. Being a teacher and having tutored a range of ages in Spanish (3-40's)has afforded me the opportunity to come up with many strategies to instruct and/or support a student's learning Spanish.
I live in North Carolina with my husband and two children. We moved here in 2010 and are really enjoying North Carolina as our new home. I speak Spanish with my children as well.

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.
There are many ways to study. The first is to find out how students best learn. For example: are they a kinesthetic learner (hands on, lots of movement) or auditory (learn best by listening/hearing the material). After this determination is made, further suggestions can be made, including rewriting notes, reading aloud, physical exercises, teaching an "audience", study buddies, or making a mock test among others. Also, suggestions can be made for the time of day a student studies as well as the place a student studies. It is also important to observe their organization habits and make suggestions as applicable.
