About Ruth

Hola,

I just got married and moved to Wake Forest! I am in my last year of nursing school and will graduate soon! I'm looking to work with high school students a couple times a week this year to help improve or maintain his/her grades and encourage mastery of the language.

I have a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish Language and Literature and a minor in German Language. I studied Spanish for about eight years and German for four.

I absolutely love learning languages. I have taken courses in Spanish, German, Latin and Chinese. I would love to help students develop a rich understanding of the Spanish and/or German language(s), as well as foster a deeper interest in other languages and cultures.

My methods include games, memorization strategies, drills, conversational practice and clear explanations tailored to the student's needs. Questions are always encouraged! I am flexible and able to adapt in order to promote learning. My initial and ideal course of action is to meet at a coffee shop or library, but of course I am able to accommodate the student's circumstances as needed. I truly want to emphasize the importance of the student and their success, and we will work together and do what it takes to see improvement in their language
I look forward to hearing from you.

Gracias por leer!

Please don't hesitate to ask questions or schedule a lesson!

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.

German

I studied German while at Appalachian State University. I can easily explain intro level German grammar to new students. Grammar is like a puzzle, and often takes time to figure out. I am able to break it down and help students figure out the rules - and of course, the exceptions to the rules.

Spanish

I have a BA in Spanish Language and Literature from Appalachian State University. Most of my experience is tutoring high school students. I enjoy tutoring beginning students because it is critical to create a strong foundation when learning a language.

Excellent disposition for working with a teen

It has taken is a while to find a Spanish Tutor that could work well with my son's personality. His self esteem and confidence have taken a hit with his lack of success in Spanish which has frustrated him to the point of being defensive and angry. She was able to get him to open up and let go of the negative Spanish experience and then he just started to get it. She was so patient and intuitive wi
