About Alison

Hi, I'm Ali. I have an undergraduate degree from UNC Chapel Hill, my major being Spanish and my minor, English. I also have a Master's degree from UNC in Hispanic Literature. I lived abroad in Spain for a year while earning my undergraduate degree, and took classes at the University of Seville. While in graduate school at UNC, I taught several classes of undergraduate Spanish 105 (a fast-paced beginner's course) for three years, and taught for an additional semester after graduating. I have experience tutoring one-on-one as well. I've worked with two high school students -- both 11th grade students trying to improve their Spanish skills. I am not a native speaker, and thus had to experience the language learning process myself, so I know what kind of difficulties students face in their studies and how best to address them. I am also very passionate about English grammar, spelling, and vocabulary. I love the writing process, and very much enjoy proofreading. I am willing to work with students of all ages on both Spanish and English studies.
I work full-time at a non-profit in Durham, but am available most evenings and on the weekends for tutoring sessions.
