About Carmin

Learning a foreign language is, in my opinion, one of the greatest learning adventures one can embark upon. I like to help my students enjoy the experience and find their own way of learning to express themselves with a different "code." I like to guide my students through this process, one that I went through myself many years ago when I learned English. Half of my formal education was completed in Spanish and the other half in English. I believe knowing two languages is one of the best gifts ever granted me.

Besides my personal experience, I have taught Spanish in public and private schools for seven years. I have tutored Spanish exclusively since last September.

I like to help students enjoy learning a new language and teach them strategies that help them make steady progress, such as learning to recognize cognates and borrowed words. I also like to help them discover their own learning style so that they can approach the process in a more efficient way. I also like to provide my students with opportunities to practice the language, through different media or experiences, such as visiting places frequented by Spanish speakers, etc.

Thanks for your time and I hope to be able to help some of you become bilingual soon.

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.

I taught kindergarten for two years; second and third grades for one year each; and sixth grade for two years. In addition, I substituted in K-6 grades for six years. I also have one year of teaching preparation courses and attended multiple teaching workshops.
