Bio

I have taught Spanish at many levels--from first grade through adults! This breadth of experience gives me the ability to connect with my students no matter their background. Most recently I taught for thirteen years at Ravenscroft School in Raleigh. I am passionate about the Spanish language and its culture.

I have taught Spanish at many levels--from first grade through adults! This breadth of experience gives me the ability to connect with my students no matter their background. Most recently I taught for thirteen years at Ravenscroft School in Raleigh. I am passionate about the Spanish language and its culture. Although not a native speaker, I fell in love with Spanish as a child admiring my babysitter's Spanish textbook! Not everyone can teach a foreign language. Being a native speaker is by no means a guarantee that you have the gift of teaching or know how to approach someone learning your language. How many of us are capable of teaching English even though it's our own language? The methods for learning language have changed drastically over the years. Through classes, seminars and training I constantly look for the most current trends in language education and implement these with others that are successful in a multi-faceted classroom. My colleagues describe me as articulate, passionate, a good communicator, and congenial. I love working with kids and have raised three of my own with a strong background in Spanish!

Experienced and spot on!

Roberta quickly picked up on where my daughter had gaps in her Spanish I and came up with a plan to close those. She truly enjoyed her first lesson and is looking forward to continuing.

Great with my shy teenage son!

Roberta is doing a wonderful job with my son. He said he wishes she was his real teacher. That says a lot in my book. Knowledgeable and very patient. Great experience so far!

Very good tutor!

Roberta is a very good tutor! Has built rapport quickly with my 17 year old son, and the sessions have already improved his Spanish II scores, with only two sessions!

Helpful Spanish Tutor

Roberta helped my sophomore son with Spanish for half the semester. He liked her a lot, and helped get him through the class. Roberta was always prompt, and pleasant. I can recommend her without hesitation.

Great Spanish Tutor!

Roberta has been an excellent AP Spanish tutor for my daughter. She is organized, on time, and quick to respond to emails. In addition she works well with my daughter. I highly recommend Roberta for any level of Spanish tutoring!
