About Laila


Bio

After obtaining my BA in Spanish, I moved to Latin America, joining the US Peace Corps, where I served in the Education sector. There, I developed a Spanish-language literacy intervention for low-performing readers. Some of my students improved as much as 40 and 50%. I also formed a professional development program to enhance the teaching practices of public educators.

I have a bachelor's degree in Spanish Language and Literature from North Carolina State University. I also have over 5 years...

After obtaining my BA in Spanish, I moved to Latin America, joining the US Peace Corps, where I served in the Education sector. There, I developed a Spanish-language literacy intervention for low-performing readers. Some of my students improved as much as 40 and 50%. I also formed a professional development program to enhance the teaching practices of public educators.

I have a bachelor's degree in Spanish Language and Literature from North Carolina State University. I also have over 5 years of experience teaching in Spanish and teaching languages. By day, I help Spanish-speaking crime victims find resources they need. By night I study Spanish medical vocabulary so I can become a certified Spanish/English medical interpreter...and watch telenovelas :). My favorite aspects of Spanish (and all languages) are grammar, phonetics and etymology. I simply love languages and helping others grasp them better!

I tutor with an encouraging approach because I know the challenges of language learning...but I also know that they can be overcome! If you're experiencing some of these challenges, let's talk about how to overcome them! ¡Sí se puede!

*** Please note that I DO NOT complete assignments for students. My goal is to increase student understanding in the most efficient and effective ways possible. I am committed to fostering learning while maintaining integrity and quality. Message me now to get started or to learn more! ***
