About Lisa

I´m both a private instructor and tutor. My areas of expertise are Spanish and Atlantic History.
I would be happy to help you stay on top of coursework, prepare for a standardized test like the SAT II or AP exam (Spanish, US History, or European History), or develop an independent study plan if you are a beginning or intermediate language learner.

Brief Bio: I grew up in Southern California, went to college in New York City, and traveled throughout Spain and Latin America (mainly Chile, Argentina, & Cuba) before moving to Princeton to get my doctoral degree in 2011.

Though I majored and earned my Masters in Spanish & Portuguese, my doctoral dissertation is actually in the field of modern cultural history of the Atlantic world and focuses on emigration between Spain & Latin America between the 1860s and 1930s.

I am also a member of the National Tutoring Association and am currently working on my Basic Tutor Certification.

Below are the courses I have taught as a Graduate Student Instructor at Princeton:

Courses:

- Beginning Spanish (SPA 101, Fall 2011; SPA 102, Spring 2011)

- Intensive Beginner’s and Intermediate Spanish (SPA 103, Fall 2012)

- Intermediate/Advanced Spanish (SPA 107, Fall 2013)

- Studies in Spanish Language and Style (SPA 207, Fall 2015 and Spring 2016)

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.

European History

In addition to the fact that I prepared for and earned a top score on the Advanced Placement exam, my field of expertise is the modern Atlantic world, which intersects broadly with modern European history.
