About Cynthia Felicia

Language is a valuable tool not only in the process of communication but to attain a better understanding of a culture. From the time I was a child I was interested in learning to speak Spanish and French. My heritage is predominantly Spanish so that was my primary foreign language focus but I also studied and learned French. English was my first language although my mother, grandparents, and other family members spoke Spanish as well. I began studying Spanish in the 7th grade and French in the 9th grade. I continued to study both and attained a degree in Spanish and Communication with a focus on Intercultural Communication from the University of New Mexico in May of 1996. I understand the challenge, work and time practicing that is required to learn a second or subsequent language through class room activity. I would be a great tutor because I was once a beginner myself and am patient, encouraging, and fun. I welcome the opportunity to work with those who are interested in learning to read, write and speak Spanish.

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.

Spanish

Shona, what I bring to Spanish tutoring is the love for languages, an understanding of the challenge of learning a second language in one's adolescence because that is when I started taking Spanish classes, and an understanding of the academic side of learning a language - the structure of the language and what may be helpful ways to think about grammatical concepts in a different language. I think it's awesome that he is in an immersion class because while it may feel uncomfortable in some ways, it is an excellent way to learn a second language. Look forward to talking with you further and tutoring your son given the opportunity.
