About Barbara

Though I love teaching in the classroom, I believe in private tutoring as a much more satisfactory learning environment. It is much easier for the student to relax and open up with me when the session is one-on-one. Also, since I get to know the student better, I design my classes in order to meet their specific needs and/or goals.

I believe that being in a more flexible, relaxed (even kind of informal) and, most importantly, personalized environment does, indeed, contribute to the students success. And, with the help of a good tutor and the will of a good student, anything is possible! Having private Spanish classes is an incredible way to improve your knowledge of the language… More students should take advantage of it!

My name is Bárbara and I am a native from Spain (therefore, yes, I do have a Spanish lisp!) I started tutoring in Spain, when I was around 16 years old. I have tutored Spanish and English classes to all variety of ages, from elementary school students to independent-adult learners. I recently graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, with a double MA in Spanish language and in Translation. While pursuing my masters, I also worked as a Teaching Assistant for the Spanish Department. I became a UWM-certified Spanish tutor for undergraduate students, and at the same time I also tutored Spanish to High School students.


Whether it is for academic reasons, or personal reasons, learning a new language has always been a challenging task for everyone, and as a native Spanish speaker living in the United States I understand that struggle! However also from my own experience I know that it is possible to learn a new language, it is possible to improve your Spanish language skills, and it is definitely possible to become bilingual. Let me share with you my passion for the Spanish language and culture and hopefully you will soon realize that it is also possible for you!

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 am originally from Spain, and I've lived there the majority of my life; so Spanish is my native language. I also hold a MA in Spanish and Translation, which helped me understand more deeply the grammatical rules and language conventions of Spanish; and for the past three years I worked as a Spanish instructor and tutor at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
