About CAROLE

I have been teaching at the secondary and undergraduate levels for 17 years. As a teacher of Spanish, I have not only an excellent command of the Spanish language, but also a great deal of cultural knowledge. I lived in Chile in South America for 18 years and in Spain for four. I have traveled throughout Latin America and Spain and consequently I make my classes come alive with real life experiences. I believe that all language classes should include as much authentic material as possible so that students may relate to the culture, not just the language. This helps to motivate a student to learn and connect with another culture, something that is very important in today's world.

My BA is in Spanish and French, my MA is in Teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language from New York University and my doctoral studies are in the area of International Education. While living in Chile, I tutored secondary and elementary level students and taught undergraduate courses at a private university.

My teaching style is communicative. Though I place emphasis on the ability to communicate ideas, I also stress grammar and vocabulary. All the skills (reading, writing, speaking, listening) are fundamental to becoming proficient in a second language. My classes focus on mastering all skills and the methods are meaningful and relevant to the age of the student I tutor.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

Very thorough, knowledgeable and patient with my son.

We felt the need to hire a Spanish tutor when my son entered high school, and was placed in an honors class. He always performed well in his middle school Spanish classes. But we later found out that those classes hadn't prepared him for high school Spanish. Carole's initial session, was a thorough analysis of his Spanish comprehension. Unfortunately, my son was way behind. Many of the sessions th
