About Beth

Thanks for taking time to read my profile! I have been teaching a combination of Spanish and ESL(English as a Second Language) for 12 years. I am a National Board Certified Teacher with 7 years of experience teaching high school Spanish (levels I-IV) and 5 years of teaching ESL. While I've taught honor level classes, I've found my greatest strength is working with students who struggle or who need extra practice. I use a handful of effective scaffolding strategies to make content comprehensible.

My specialty is Spanish and ESL, but I also have experience with high school core subject areas. Currently, I am a collaborating teacher in English, math, science, and social studies classes. Through this collaborative role, I've become very familiar with middle and high school course standards and expectations.

I've worked with all age groups. I'm dual certified K-12 and have led various summer camps for younger children. I've also taught tennis and downhill skiing to students as young as 3!

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.

Spanish

I have 7 years experience teaching high school Spanish I, II, III, and IV. In addition to visiting many Spanish speaking countries, I lived and worked in Latin America. I spent a year in Bolivia and 2 years in Mexico City.
